Surgery isn’t the only option for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Injectable treatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic can give you the smooth, flawless skin you want without the recovery time of surgical procedures. This injectable treatment takes minutes to administer and offers results that last for several months. Learn more about BOTOX® Cosmetic by making an appointment at our Newport Beach office today.
What Is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a safe, fast, and effective way to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by facial expressions on the forehead, around the eyes, and the lips. This treatment is a neuromodulator that blocks nerve signals to specific facial areas. This process effectively “freezes” muscles and prevents them from contracting and making wrinkles more visible.
How Does This Treatment Work?
We use a fresh vial for each patient, so you know you are truly getting the units that you paid for, and the product is fresh. Usually, treatment is 50 units, but some patients prefer 100, as the result lasts longer. A typical treatment takes approximately 10-15 minutes to perform. We pre-apply a local anesthetic cream. Most patients receiving BOTOX® Cosmetic report that the injections feel like a pinch. After the procedure, you can return to the rest of your day. Avoid aerobics till the day after the injections, and you should see your results after 1-2 days.
Results and Benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetic
You may notice a visible smoothing of frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines within 24-48 hours after your treatment, with full results occurring in 30 days and lasting up to 4-6 months for moderate to severe frown lines. BOTOX® Cosmetic is not a permanent treatment. If you discontinue treatment, the moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines will gradually return. Therefore, we recommend scheduling follow-up treatments to maintain your results.
