Botox® in Tustin, CA
Acquiring fine lines and wrinkles is a natural part of the aging process. As the years go by, your body changes and your skin does too. Your skin loses collagen, elasticity, and moisture, causing you to develop fine lines and wrinkles when you show emotions like frowning, smiling, or laughing. Now, you can do something about those fine lines and wrinkles. It’s called Botox.
What is Botox?
Botox is derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, and it has revolutionized anti-aging treatments because it is so effective. It’s also safe, with a long history of safety for use in migraine treatment, treatment of facial pain, and anti-aging treatment.
How does Botox work?
Botox works by temporarily “freezing” or paralyzing the nerves and muscles around the injection site. After treatment, your skin will look smooth, wrinkle-free, and younger. It’s an excellent choice to minimize the appearance of:
- Fine lines at the corners of your eyes, known as crow’s feet
- Deep lines between your eyebrows, known as glabella
- Lines that run across your forehead, known as furrows
- Deep lines running from the corners of your mouth to your chin, known as marionette lines
- Smile and laugh lines, running from your nose down to your mouth
Your Botox treatment
When you choose Botox, your dermatologist will inject small amounts of the liquid into your skin, using a tiny needle. Most people tolerate Botox treatment very well, and you can also request a numbing spray be applied beforehand. The amount of injections you will need depends on the area being treated and your individual characteristics
What you can expect from Botox
You will notice excellent results which can last up to 6 months. Your dermatologist may recommend maintenance treatments to keep you looking your best. Botox is easy and requires no downtime.
