A variety of factors can contribute to facial lines as we age. This can include cellular changes, free radicals that damage the skin, repeated muscle contractions and an overall loss of collagen. Our San Jose BOTOX® treatment is popular for a good reason – it’s fast, effective, and requires no recovery time. This anti-aging treatment smooths wrinkles that are caused by muscle activity such as frown lines, forehead creases, and crow’s feet.

What is BOTOX®?

BOTOX® is made of Botulinum toxin, which is a purified protein/neurotoxin produced by the bacterium clostridium botulinum. Although the word “toxin” is in the name, there is no reason to be alarmed. BOTOX® is a purified protein that has been used medically for more than 20 years to smooth facial lines and creases, along with treating medical conditions, even in children.

Am I a Candidate For BOTOX® in San Jose?

You may be a good candidate for BOTOX® in San Jose if you are physically healthy and desire an improvement in the following facial concerns:

Forehead lines: Horizontal lines across the forehead which are the result of raising the eyebrows.

Drooping brows: Our brows can droop with age this can give us an angry or tired look, or eyes that appear hooded.

Frown lines: The lines that develop between the eyebrows or the “11” lines which develop from furrowing the brow.

Crow’s feet: The fine lines that develop in the corners of our eyes due to the loss of collagen in our skin.

Drooping mouth: The corners of our mouths begin to turn down as we age causing a sad, upset appearance.

Neck bands: Vertical necks bands on the neck can leave you looking less attractive and youthful.

BOTOX® does not work on every type of wrinkle. For signs of aging caused by loss of volume in the face and neck, we recommend dermal fillers such as Juvéderm® XC, Juvéderm® Voluma XC, Restylane®, and Sculptra®. For very fine lines on the surface of the skin, you will achieve the best results from skin resurfacing procedures. If you have pronounced wrinkles on the face, a surgical procedure might provide you with the results you desire.

During your consultation, we will discuss all of your treatment options and any pertinent medical history to discover which treatment is right for you. The good news is that if you do decide on more than one procedure, we are a one-stop shop for taking care of virtually every cosmetic issue.

What Should I Expect From My BOTOX® Treatment?

We administer BOTOX® using a very fine needle, so for most, there is little to no discomfort. If desired, a topical anesthetic can be applied to numb the site of your injections to make the procedure even more comfortable.

The injections themselves usually take no more than 15 minutes. Afterward, we may apply an ice pack to the area for a few minutes to help with any minimal pain swelling or redness.

Be sure to ask us about the Brilliant Distinctions Patient Loyalty Program. You will earn points toward rebates on future treatments every time you have a BOTOX®, Juvéderm®, Voluma, Vollure, Volbella or Kybella® treatment or purchase Latisse® in our office.

Recovering from BOTOX® Injections

One of the reasons people love BOTOX® is that they can go right back to work or elsewhere immediately after their treatment. You won’t see instantaneous results, but the effects will begin to arrive in three days to a week. You will see your full results two weeks after your treatment. We always schedule a follow-up visit with Dr. Cheng at that time to assess your results.

A few patients have a mild reaction to our Palo Alto BOTOX® injections that involves a slight bruise where the needle was inserted and a bit of tenderness. Makeup can cover any discoloration, and the soreness usually only lasts 24 to 48 hours.
