BOTOX® gets a lot of attention, and the attention is certainly warranted. It’s a safe, effective means to reduce the appearance of smile lines, crow’s feet, and other dynamic wrinkles that form when we make facial expressions. Mature adults become concerned about how the simple act of smiling, pouting, and even chewing food can cause these wrinkles to appear. Our Thousand Oaks clients who bring us their concerns about age-related dynamic wrinkles soon learn why BOTOX® injections are so popular. The positive effects are quite dramatic, and the treatment is safely repeatable at regular intervals.
Who Can Benefit?
BOTOX® is a preferred treatment for individuals experiencing forehead furrows, smile and frown lines, and crow’s feet that appear near the corners of the mouth. To find out what BOTOX® can do to improve your overall appearance, schedule a consultation with us in Thousand Oaks.
Treatment with BOTOX®
We want to consult with you before agreeing to perform these treatments because we need to see firsthand how severe your facial wrinkling is. We’ll watch as you make various facial expressions. We will note the size of the muscles that are controlling facial expressions because it is into these muscles that we inject the BOTOX® fluid. We need to know the proper injection sites and the dosage required. This, of course, varies from one individual to another.
After this treatment, the muscles will no longer be able to fully contract. Smiling and frowning is still possible, but the semi-relaxed state of the muscles means that smile lines and crow’s feet no long become visible. It takes a few days for the full effect of the injections to become noticeable. There’s no loss of sensation in the facial skin, however, because the solution doesn’t affect the nerves directly, only the muscles into which it is injected.
Positive Results That Last
BOTOX® is eventually flushed from the body, but the affected muscles remain in a rather relaxed state for multiple months, after which time we can repeat the procedure at our office in Thousand Oaks. There’s little to no downtime after the treatment.
