Since BOTOX® was first approved and available for cosmetic treatment, it quickly became one of the most popular ways to correct fine lines and wrinkles. At Plastic Surgery La Jolla, we offer BOTOX® treatments to provide patients with rejuvenated facial aesthetics.
If you’re interested in trying BOTOX®, we’ve provided the following short guide to introduce its range of capabilities:
The most common and well-known use of BOTOX® is to correct the appearance of lines and wrinkles in problematic facial areas. With a quick injection, BOTOX® creates a minor paralytic effect on muscles that create wrinkles. BOTOX® injections are typically applied to treat crow’s feet, frown lines, and other wrinkles; minimizing the visual effect of these lines, as exaggerated movements of the facial muscles is limited. This is ideal for patients who want a more youthful appearance but who are not ready for or interested in surgical procedures.
Trusted, Proven Outcomes
While there are several brands of injectable treatments to reduce wrinkles, BOTOX® is considered the most popular option and arguably has the best reputation. Clients from all walks of life use BOTOX®, whether they want to look good while wearing little to no makeup or appear younger for a special event. As early as the 1950’s, researchers discovered that botulinum toxin type A (active component of BOTOX®) could, in small amounts, treat hyperactive muscles, which led to cosmetic and therapeutic uses. From frown lines to scars, BOTOX® has proven extremely beneficial for skin since its approval by the FDA.
Duration of Results and Prevention
BOTOX® doesn’t just address current wrinkles and frown lines – it also helps lessen the severity of future imperfections. The results last for around three to four months, and during that time your facial muscles will grow accustomed to being in a more relaxed state while normal functions return. You can take advantage of this time period by regularly massaging your face and applying therapeutic cream to maximize cosmetic effect and keep re-treatment to a minimum.
