Who Is a Good Candidate?
BOTOX® is safe and effective for most people who are frustrated with the impact of lines and wrinkles on their appearance. It is important to remember it only reduces the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, which are those created by natural facial expressions or movements. It cannot be used for static wrinkles.
A consultation with our team in Rancho Cucamonga can help you determine if this is the best treatment option for you. It is important to have realistic goals and expectations for treatment. BOTOX may not be for you if you are seeking a treatment that creates permanent results.
The BOTOX Experience:
BOTOX is administered in the comfort of our California office. There is little pain associated with this injectable treatment option, and the feeling is comparable to a pinch. However, a topical anesthetic may be available for you additional comfort.
Injections are made directly into specific treatment areas. Once injected, this neuromodulator begins the process of reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Being a neuromodulator means this injectable affects how nerve signals interact with muscles. It prevents nerve signals from reaching muscles, which relaxes the appearance of wrinkles and prevents them from contracting.
Treatment sessions are typically short, but will vary for each person. The treatment area and the severity of concerns will affect the length of treatment.
It is imperative to have a consultation with our qualified team in California before any treatment. While they can provide all of the specific recommendations before treatment, it is important to avoid certain medications before treatment, such as aspirin and ibuprofen.
BOTOX Recovery Time?
There is no set downtime associated with a BOTOX treatment, and most people return to their normal daily activities. However, experiencing some minor bruising or swelling may occur.
While it there is no set downtime required for a BOTOX treatment, you may want to relax after a treatment session. Some people experience some minor injection site pain or dizziness following treatment.
It is important to take particular care of your skin following treatment, particularly in the treatment areas. You may not be able to apply makeup for a few days following treatment, and you may want to avoid exercise shortly after treatment.
