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 or under the supervision of one. 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 that 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 several hours after your injections.
More and more men are relying on BOTOX injections to treat facial aging. BOTOX softens harsh frown lines, smooths creases between the eyebrows, and relaxes deep forehead lines to help men have a more youthful, refreshed look. Also called “Brotox,” BOTOX helps men look young and vital for years longer than nature intended.
BOTOX injections can help slow the development of lines and wrinkles in men as young as their early 30s. If your face is beginning to show your age, BOTOX injections can take years off your look in just minutes, with no downtime.
Men experience facial aging slightly differently than women. They have thicker skin, and the eyebrows and eyelids can start to drop as early as the 30s. As the skin on the forehead ages, deeply-etched creases can appear. BOTOX can smooth away these lines and wrinkles, allowing the skin to relax and lift.
Men trust Dr. Sanjay Grover for his outstanding skills in anti-aging. You may be worried that if you have BOTOX injections, it will be evident to others. When under our care, BOTOX is injected correctly and in the right quantity to ensure the results appear natural, not stiff or frozen.
Men who want a fast, comfortable treatment are good candidates for our custom Orange County BOTOX treatment. BOTOX is one of the most effective anti-aging treatments for men who have developed forehead creases and lines around the eyes. The injections take only about fifteen minutes to complete, and the smoothing effect will last for between three to four months.
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 that your BOTOX injections will be performed with meticulous care, and your skin will appear smoother, rather than over-injecting and frozen.
Baby Botox is a different technique for applying Botox that uses less units more precisely and superficially to provide a more natural, even and youthful appearance. Baby Botox treatments don’t fully relax the facial muscles, which allows more flexibility and natural facial motion while rejuvenating and refreshing the face.
When Botox is very specifically, precisely applied to the right areas, less of the product can be used. Baby Botox can be described as super targeted, micro Botox injections that provide a more natural appearance.
Baby Botox can be used in most areas of your face, but it is best suited for moderate to fine lines or delicate areas such as crow's feet. Baby Botox is designed for younger patients who are experiencing less aggressive signs of age, or who are looking to use Botox as a preventative measure to ward off the formation of wrinkles in the first place.
Microtox uses a wrinkle relaxer such as Botox in a unique procedure that is similar to a microneedling technique. Microtox applies a combination of Botox and filler across a wider span of skin using ultra-thin, hair-like needles that are virtually painless to penetrate the skin. This technique allows the Botox to be infused directly into strategic areas more widely across the face.
The traditional method of Botox is injected directly into the muscles to relax them and smooth away the appearance of wrinkles. During a Microtox treatment, a set of tiny, extremely fine needles are used to precisely deliver the Botox and filler. Microtox is injected just beneath the surface of the skin and provides immediate improvements.
The Microtox technique is designed to lift, tighten and firm the skin, decrease pore size, reduce redness, and smooth away fine lines, wrinkles, creases and crow’s feet, while providing a natural rejuvenated, but mobile appearance.
In addition to traditional BOTOX treatments that are designed for the face, Dr. Grover also performs Barbie BOTOX on patients who are looking to improve the aesthetic of their neck and shoulders. As the name suggests, the goal of these treatments is to achieve a Barbie-like look that is characterized by slim shoulders and an elongated neck. Patients who are looking for defined shoulders and a better posture might from this treatment.
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.
