Botox injections administered by our certified OC Skin Institute dermatologists are an excellent choice for individuals in search of a smooth look and decreased wrinkles on the forehead, frown lines, nasal bunny lines and crows feet. With the highest patient satisfaction of all non-surgical cosmetic procedures, Botox has age-defying effects that are visible within a few days of the procedure and lasts up to four months or longer. Botox has many benefits at any age and serves many purposes including treating various parts of the face and body. In addition, it is used to treat conditions like excessive sweating, muscle spasms and much much more.
Are You a Candidate for Botox?
Even if you are diligent about wearing sunblock and moisturizing your face daily, years of facial expressions can cause lines and wrinkles that can make you appear older than your actual age. Botox, in fact, is a medical-grade, purified form of botulinum toxin that was originally created to treat overactive facial spasms by relaxing the muscles used to create the facial movement. Although Botox cannot tighten your skin or improve your skin’s overall texture, it helps by relaxing your facial muscles to diminish wrinkles, and even lifting eyebrows that have lost their arch due to age. It’s an easy, ten-minute appointment with little discomfort, and you can return to your daily activities as soon as you leave our office.
How Is Botox So Effective?
Botox is an FDA approved botulinum toxin that paralyzes muscles from movement and is inherently beneficial in cases of not only cosmetic enhancements but is also a necessary treatment in many cases. For example, the use of Botox is not limited to the face and is in many instances required to treat muscle spasms in the body, can prevent signs of aging and lines on the neck, and prevents excessive sweating by targeting certain glands and more. Botox has recently been approved by the FDA for the treatment of muscle stiffness in ankle and toe muscles and lower limb spasticity. It is the only product to be approved by the FDA to treat various and multiple muscles of the upper and lower limbs.
While Botox injections are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments, the effects of botulinum toxin can be both dangerous and undesirable when administered by an untrained practitioner, such as those at Botox parties which have become increasingly popular in Orange County. There are countless examples of injections gone wrong as a result of one of these Botox parties. It’s important to trust your face to only a licensed and board-certified dermatologist for Botox injections. Our doctors are experts at not only administering Botox properly, but in providing you the necessary information to ensure that your injections provide the results you are looking for.
