Am I a Good Candidate for Botox® Cosmetic?
Botox® Cosmetic is a facial rejuvenation procedure that has been proven effective in reducing the appearance of the following:
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines
- Laugh lines
- Forehead and brow wrinkles
Using a small needle to make a series of injections, Dr. Patino is able to treat all of these problems in less than an hour.
What Can I Expect After Botox®?
Results from Botox® Cosmetic treatments generally last for up to four months. Because this procedure is minimally invasive and requires no recovery time, many people choose to come to the Cosmetic Surgical Center of El Cerrito three to four times a year for additional treatments to keep their skin looking as youthful and healthy as possible.
If you decide to stop receiving Botox® Cosmetic injections, you skin will return to its natural state.
For a more permanent solution to aging, consider a facelift.
Additional Skin Rejuvenation Treatments
Yes! When performed by an experienced and qualified medical aesthetician or plastic surgeon, like the team at The Cosmetic Surgical Center of El Cerrito, Botox® is a perfectly safe treatment for the face. During your consultation, we’ll review your health status and treatment goals to ensure your complete safety during and after the Botox® treatment.
Botox® is a unique treatment as it offers both preventative and restorative benefits. It can be used to prevent wrinkles from forming or worsening in younger patients, and it can be used to alleviate the appearance of wrinkles in patients who have begun developing them. Therefore, there is no perfect age for Botox® - nearly all patients who are interested in achieving and maintaining a youthful appearance are an appropriate age for Botox® treatments. The minimum age for Botox® is 18 years old.
Yes, you can stop the use of Botox® at any point after you begin treatment. However, keep in mind that you may see wrinkles return and continue to worsen after discontinuing the Botox® treatment. Treatment can be resumed at any time to continue addressing facial lines and wrinkles.
Botox® is primarily a facial rejuvenation treatment, where it is often used in the forehead, around the eyes, around the mouth and even in the chin. However, Botox® can also be used on other areas of the body. For example, Botox® can be effective in treating hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) when injected under the arms.
After Botox®, you should take a brief 24-hour break from exercise and alcohol. Additionally, we recommend that patients avoid touching or rubbing the treatment area, and avoid the use of other skincare treatments for the first day. Otherwise, patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately following their Botox® treatment.
