Botox® Cosmetic in San Diego
Sadrian Plastic Surgery Center – San Diego Botox® Treatments
Many people want to obtain a fresh look on their face without having to undergo the time, expense and stress of surgery. For many years, this was not possible, but in modern times, new treatments and strategies have become available to accomplish this goal for millions of people. One form of non-surgical treatment remains one of the industry leaders.
This treatment is known as BOTOX® Cosmetic. This treatment is the trade name of botulinum toxin type A. Below you’ll find information regarding what this treatment is at its foundation, how it works and the potential results that someone can obtain if they choose the benefits that San Diego BOTOX® can provide.
BOTOX® – An Overview
As stated above, BOTOX® is actually a form of botulinum toxin. Botulinum by itself has traditionally been known as a harmful substance that can lead to botulism, but scientists eventually discovered that if it’s formulated properly and administered carefully by experienced professionals, this form of treatment can provide almost instant benefits and results.
Basically, the active ingredients in BOTOX® serve to help to remove wrinkles and other signs of aging in the areas of the body where it’s used for treatment. This approach to providing patients with a new look has been used by everyone from regular citizens to celebrities to politicians to literally take years off of someone’s appearance.
How BOTOX® Works
BOTOX® is administered via an injection into the area that’s intended to be treated, including the eyes, the mouth and other areas of the face where the patient wants signs of aging that include wrinkles and loose skin reduced and removed. This treatment works by altering the messaging that generally takes place between the brain and the muscles in the treated area such that the usual muscle spasms that can lead to wrinkles, crow’s feet and other unsightly signs of aging are either reduced significantly or are eliminated altogether.
Most patients can expect the results to be almost immediate, and if someone who seeks San Diego BOTOX® treatments understands that the process is instant but not permanent, they can usually plan on returning for additional treatments anywhere from three to six months after the initial appointment.
If you are in need of a new look but do not want to undergo more extensive procedures that include surgery, a San Diego BOTOX® treatment can provide you with exactly what you need. All you need to do is contact the professionals at the Sadrian Plastic Surgery Center to schedule an initial appointment to discuss the specifics further.
