BOTOX is an injectable treatment that has been approved by the FDA for improving the appearance of crow’s feet and moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. This non-surgical treatment can also be used in the lower face, to reduce vertical neck bands, and to diminish the appearance of forehead lines and brow creases.
This injectable product contains tiny amounts of purified botulinum toxin protein. It’s safety and efficacy have been evaluated in manufacturer sponsored clinical trials and peer-reviewed articles in scientific and medical journals.
BOTOX works by targeting repeated muscle contractions – the underlying cause of frown lines, crow’s feet, and other cosmetic flaws. When injected into the muscle, BOTOX temporarily reduces muscle activity by blocking signals from the nerve cells to the muscles. After a short time, you will notice a visible smoothing of frown lines, crow’s feet, and other facial creases and wrinkles.
BOTOX treatments are safe when the product is injected correctly. As with any injectable, the instructions must be followed for the product to perform as promised. A conservative approach should be employed so your facial muscles retain their flexibility and natural expressiveness. BOTOX has been used in millions of facial treatments over the years and is one of the safest products on the market when injected correctly. Any cosmetic treatment carries some risk, but our treatments have had an outstanding record of safety for over 15 years, bringing you the best results in BOTOX Newport Beach, Fullerton and Brentwood have to offer.
Many patients report that a BOTOX injection feels like a pinch. Ice may be used to numb the area to make treatment more comfortable, or a topical numbing cream may be applied before injections are performed.
BOTOX injections are a minimally-invasive treatment with few side effects. The most common side effects are minor redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection sites.
If you have deep frown lines between your brows, it can smooth these creases and produce a much younger, well-rested look. For smile lines around the eyes, BOTOX smooths the skin in the area for a rejuvenated facial appearance. Our Fullerton BOTOX is an appropriate treatment for a range of facial wrinkles and lines. Our patients come to us for anti-aging BOTOX treatments to restore the appearance of the following areas:
BOTOX is truly a “lunchtime” procedure that requires very little downtime, if any. You can come into the office, receive your BOTOX treatment, and resume normal activities almost immediately. The only restrictions are that you should avoid strenuous activities and avoid rubbing or massaging the treated area for four hours after the procedure.
If you have friends or colleagues that always look fresh and vital, you may be surprised to learn that they maintain the look with regular BOTOX treatments. Most people don’t want to reveal the secret to smoother skin, but we can tell you with honesty – thousands upon thousands of women and men count on this trusted cosmetic treatment to maintain a younger appearance and keep the wrinkles, creases, and lines at bay.
Your face has 43 muscles and is one of the most flexible, mobile structures in the body. These muscle groups allow your face to move into a wide range of positions, but certain facial muscle movements are more common. Repeated facial muscle contractions are the underlying cause of creases and wrinkles, including frowning, squinting, and smiling. The temporary reduction of the furrows and folds created by this constant muscle activity allows the targeted muscles to smooth out, with wrinkles and lines far less prominent.
The injections are performed with a very tiny needle, carefully targeting the specific muscle group in a manner that allows you to maintain your expressiveness. If you have developed a deep crease between your brows, this crease will smooth, and you will be left looking younger – and happier. Deep frown lines give your face an angry, tired look, but BOTOX can produce a dramatic improvement in your overall facial appearance.
While you have many choices about where to get BOTOX in Brentwood, Fullerton, and Newport Beach, you want to ensure your lines and wrinkles are treated conservatively, correctly, and by a professional with years of experience and a great breadth of knowledge of facial muscular structure. We understand that the goal is to look younger, but not frozen or unexpressive – and that is our approach. Treatments last about four to six months, at which point the wrinkles and lines begin to reappear and another treatment will be needed.
At ADV in Newport Beach, Fullerton, and Brentwood, we custom-tailor a BOTOX treatment plan for each patient. Your treatment will depend on your anatomy and individual goals. In most cases, the BOTOX injection process takes approximately 10 minutes.
The number of injections you receive in a single session will depend on the number of areas being treated. For treatment of crow’s feet, you will receive three injections in the muscle that frames the side of the eye (orbicularis oculi) for each eye. Frown line treatment requires five injections into the muscles of the forehead.
You may begin to notice results a day or two after a BOTOX treatment session. You can expect to see smoother, more youthful-looking skin in the treated areas. Results of a single BOTOX treatment session may last up to four months.
BOTOX may be an appropriate treatment to reduce the appearance of frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead furrows, and other facial flaws. To find out if BOTOX is the right treatment option for you, schedule a consultation at ADV in Newport Beach, Brentwood, or Fullerton. If you are a good candidate, we can create a comprehensive BOTOX treatment plan tailored specifically for you.
