Botox Treatment in La Jolla

With everyday experiences, laugh lines, fine lines around the eyes, and wrinkling of the forehead may become more pronounced. However, there are options to erase those lines for a fuller, more rejuvenated facial aesthetic. As a less invasive alternative to major facelifts, dermal fillers like Botox® allow patients to pick specific areas of their face to improve with treatment. At The La Jolla Institute of Plastic Surgery, you can achieve a smoother, younger look with our safe and effective cosmetic procedures.

As we age, smile lines, crow’s feet, and exposure to the sun can slowly diminish the smoothness of our skin. While these aesthetic blemishes may develop slowly, without treatment, these conditions can lead individuals to look older than their years. Botox® is a common procedure often recommended for individuals looking to eliminate lines and wrinkles around the mouth, eyes, and forehead. Rather than giving the face a stiff, frozen look, Botox® stops nerve impulses to the injected area, weakening tense muscles that cause frowns or lines. Within several days, these lines gradually soften and can even disappear. 



To determine whether a patient is an ideal candidate for Botox®, Dr. Pietraszek conducts an in-depth evaluation of the patient’s medical history and facial features. For the best results, our La Jolla plastic surgeon typically recommends Botox® for individuals with surface wrinkles, laugh lines, and crow’s feet. Individuals with deep-set wrinkles often find better, longer lasting results through comprehensive cosmetic reconstruction. 

Facial Rejuvenation Through Botox

Botox lasts around three to four months and can be used effectively anywhere on the face. The most common injection sites, or treatment areas, are between the eyes, at the corners of eyes to target crow’s feet, and on the forehead. Botox can also be used around the cheeks, nose, and even lips. Our patients love that Botox delivers natural, subtle results, so you do not appear overly treated. 

Botox® is a known and trusted brand that rejuvenates the face with reliable results. Botox® is a safe way to treat aging skin, reduce wrinkles, and provide a non-surgical option for those looking to enhance facial appearance.
