Botox® Cosmetic is an FDA-approved treatment for the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. It was originally used as a treatment for fasciculations, or excessive contractions, of the muscles around the eyes. Due to the beneficial cosmetic side effects these patients had, Botox® Cosmetic was approved at a lower dose to treat lines and wrinkles between the eyebrows, across the forehead, and around the eyes.
Kastle Donovan, CRNP and Catherine Wilson, CRNP have been specially trained in the administration of Botox® Cosmetic. In 2019, Kastle Donovan achieved membership with the Brilliant Distinctions Customer Loyalty program, which gives patients exclusive discounts on Allergan products like Botox®.
Botox® treatments are temporary and for most patients last three months on average.

Hormone Replacement Therapy
Annapolis Family Medicine is happy to offer Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). This therapy, which utilizes bioidentical pellet therapy, is targeted to help men with low testosterone levels as well as women both pre- and post-menopausal. BHRT has been known to treat syptoms such as depression, low libido, fatigue, brain fog, lack of focus, energy, insomnia, hot flashes, and anxiety. In men this is accomplished with testosterone alone and for women it generally includes testosterone plus estrogen and progesterone. In addition to just feeling better, balancing your hormones has many long term health benefits. The process begins with a consultation with the provider, followed by a comprehensive blood panel and then you return for your insertion if appropriate. At Annapolis Family Medicine we truly believe in whole body wellness and optimal aging so encourage you to call for more information.
