BOTOX® is one of the most effective anti-aging cosmetic treatments ever developed, and millions of people worldwide count upon regular BOTOX injections to keep the facial skin looking smooth, fresh, and youthful.
BOTOX®, or botulinum toxin, is injected in tiny quantities to soften or temporarily smooth dynamic wrinkles caused by a constant contraction of certain facial muscles. This will help prevent wrinkles from becoming deeply-etched. BOTOX smooths “worry lines,” “frown lines” and “crow’s feet,” and produces a dramatic improvement in facial appearance. You will look younger, rejuvenated, and even more approachable. BOTOX® can also be effective in treating “smokers’ lines” and smoothing visible neck bands.
When correctly injected by a trained professional injector, certain muscle strands – those that are constantly contracting – are targeted. The nerves that trigger muscle motion are affected as the BOTOX does its job, with lines and creases flattening. It is critical that your Newport Beach BOTOX injections are performed by a professional who understands facial muscle structure, and who is conservative in the quantity injected, and very accurate in where the injections are placed. When BOTOX is injected correctly, your face appears smoother and younger, but not frozen or unnatural.
Various facial areas can be smoothed with BOTOX, including:
During your Newport Beach & Orange County BOTOX treatments, the product is carefully injected into the targeted facial areas with a very fine needle. No anesthetic is required, and the sensation is like a tiny pinch, with the entire procedure completed in about 5 to 10 minutes. The smoothing effect becomes visible after a few days, and typically lasts from 3 to 4 months before retreatment is needed.
BOTOX injections are very safe when your treatment is performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon. As the injections are a very tiny quantity of the toxin, only the targeted muscles are affected. Never bargain-hunt for cheap BOTOX injections, as counterfeit BOTOX has been discovered in some cut-rate spas in the USA. You want to be confident that your treatment is with the genuine product, and injected in the right muscles, in the right quantity. When under the care of a highly-skilled plastic surgeon, BOTOX is exceptionally safe for use.
There is no real “recovery time” associated with BOTOX injections. The only side effect you may experience is redness at injection site, minor bruising (not common), and minor swelling, which quickly fades. You are able to return to your usual activities, including work, immediately after your injections. The only restriction is that you cannot lie down or exercise for 24 hours after your injections.
If you are interested in BOTOX treatments as an anti-aging procedure, you want to ensure your injections are performed correctly. Dr. Sanjay Grover is among the finest board-certified plastic surgeons practicing in Orange County, consistently named as a “Top Doctor” by U.S. News and World Report, Los Angeles Magazine, and realself.com. You can be confident your BOTOX injections will be performed with meticulous care, and your skin will appear smoother, rather than over-injecting the product leaving you with a frozen look.
BOTOX treatments are very affordable. The actual cost is based upon the number of units to be injected. Every person has unique wishes and areas of the face they want to smooth, so prices can vary. The main issue is to ensure you are under the care of an expert injector who takes a conservative approach. An average quantity used in facial smoothing is approximately 20 units of BOTOX.
Many younger patients are choosing to have BOTOX injections to ward off the development of wrinkles and lines. When certain facial muscles are halted from constant motion, the wrinkles and lines cannot develop.
No injectable should be applied if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. You will have to wait until those processes are over to get BOTOX treatments.
The maximum smoothing effect is achieved after about a month but begins at between three days to a week for most patients.
This only occurs when too much BOTOX is injected. For an initial treatment, less BOTOX will be injected to determine how your body reacts to the product, after which you may have slightly more injected. Ensure your treatment is performed by a board-certified medical doctor so that you are not at risk of over-injection.
A very subtle lift can be achieved by injecting BOTOX into the upper brow, improving your overall facial appearance by slightly lifting the eyebrows and upper eyelid skin.
Dermal fillers work by adding volume to fill creases and wrinkles, whereas BOTOX smooths “dynamic wrinkles,” those created by constant facial muscle motions. They are completely different products but can be used together for a comprehensive facial rejuvenation treatment.
