BOTOX or botulinum toxin A has been in practical use for decades. It is one of the world’s most popular injectables for unsightly lines between the brows, on forehead, crow’s feet and other facial areas. BOTOX is injected into the facial muscle and attaches itself to nerve endings to block the nerve transmitters in that muscle. This may take from two to ten days and when it happens, the muscle cannot contract, which eliminates “dynamic wrinkles” – these are caused by constant muscle motion. The skin above this muscle then smooths, leading to a more rested, rejuvenated facial appearance. Here at Dr. Sadrian's medical spa, we offer incredible results from Botox injections at our San Diego practice.
BOTOX results are temporary, but with an active effect that can last up to 4 months, many patients find it highly satisfactory. Major benefits include:
Our team offers decades of experience upholding patients’ well-placed trust in our ability to improve their appearance. During your consultation with one of our skilled and experienced injectors, you will be educated as to your options, what the procedure is and does, and what your options are based upon what you hope to achieve. We will carefully study your medical history to help assess your best options and take the time to answer all of your questions about Botox, as well as any other procedures you may be interested in incorporating into your beauty regimen. Dr. Sadrian, a board-certified plastic surgeon in San Diego, knows how to help reduce any nervousness, keep you comfortable, and he and his staff provide world-class service to each patient.
Most patients find BOTOX injection tolerable, but you can have your skin numbed beforehand if you are extremely sensitive or if your treatment area is sensitive such as the soles of your feet or palms (for treatment of excessive sweating). You will need to tell us if you have had BOTOX injections more recently than 4 months ago.
The injection needle is very fine. The number of injections your treatment will require depends upon how broad an area is being treated and the depth of the wrinkles and creases you want to smooth. You will be able to go home immediately after your Botox injections in our San Diego office are done, and you will be able to resume your normal activities. We will advise you about any restrictions to avoid during the first week or so.
It can take up to 2 weeks to see the results of a BOTOX treatment and those results may last up to four months. The longevity of the treatment depends upon a few factors:
BOTOX has been clinically shown to be safe. BOTOX is a temporary treatment and when its effects are gone, they are gone completely with nothing residual remaining in your body. BOTOX has a well-earned reputation for being an effective, trusted, and reliable anti-wrinkle treatment.
After Botox treatment, expect mild redness and swelling at injection sites. Normal activities can be resumed immediately, but strenuous exercise should be avoided for 24 hours. Full effects appear within about 7-14 days and last 3-6 months.
BOTOX is primarily used to reduce the cosmetic appearance of facial wrinkles particularly around the eyes and forehead. It is also used to treat muscle stiffness, movement disorders and other muscle disorders.
Generally, a BOTOX treatment is safe and relatively comfortable. Rarely, some patients may experience some post injection pain or swelling or bruising.
A standard BOTOX treatment can take up to two weeks to take full effect. The maximum effect can occur at about the two-week mark. The effect often lasts for three months and sometimes longer.
Generally, between the ages of 35 and 40. Specific needs may make earlier treatment appropriate.
It really depends on what wrinkles are being addressed, the age and skin condition of the patient, and the outcome anticipated. The deep vertical lines between the brow get between 13 to 30 units of BOTOX and the horizontal forehead lines get a bit less, at about 10-20 units. More delicate lines require only 5 to 10 units.
The decision to undergo a cosmetic procedure is extremely personal. If you are considering an enhancement, you want to be confident that your results will appear fresh and natural – and like you. Dr. Sadrian is among the finest plastic surgeons practicing in the San Diego area and has achieved acclaim for consistently achieving natural-looking results.
