One of the earliest signs of aging is the formation of small lines around the eyes and deep creases on the forehead. These wrinkles can add unwanted years onto the appearance. Caused by repetitive, expressive muscle movement, other factors such as weight fluctuations, illness, stress, smoking, sun damage, and genetics can also contribute to these fine lines. Unfortunately, no amount of expensive lotion or fancy beauty treatments will reverse these wrinkles.
Botox Cosmetic is the only safe and effective method to eliminate fine lines without surgery. Both men and women can find dramatic facial rejuvenation through the use of Botox Cosmetic. Plastic Surgery Associates can offer patients in Santa Rosa a younger, more rested appearance through a single, quick, and convenient treatment with Botox at their luxurious Allegro MedSpa.
Botox Cosmetic can improve:
- Forehead Creases
- Crow’s Feet (at the edges of the eyes)
- Frown Lines (between the eyebrows)
- Bunny Lines (along the bridge of the nose)
- Sagging corners of the mouth
- ‘Orange Peel’ creases on the chin
A Botox Cosmetic Consultation in Santa Rosa:
Dr. Francisco Canales and Dr. Heather Furnas recommend patients come in for a Botox consultation prior to their first treatment. At this time, a brief examination of the facial tissues can be performed. The surgeons and their experienced estheticians will go over your aesthetic desires, explaining in detail what can be expected from a Botox Cosmetic treatment. If Botox is determined to be right for you, then a personalized treatment plan will be created to achieve both short-term and long-term aesthetic goals.
The Ideal Botox Cosmetic Patient:
Men and women of any age can find significant benefits from Botox Cosmetic. The ideal patient will be in overall good health and understand the Botox treatment regime. As with any cosmetic procedure, patients should hold realistic expectations for their potential results. All skin types and ethnicities can see an improvement in the early signs of aging with Botox Cosmetic. At the Napa Botox Cosmetic consultation, it will be decided if Botox is the best choice to achieve your personal goals.
The Botox Cosmetic Procedure in Marin and Sonoma County:
Each Botox Cosmetic session will be performed in one of the comfortable Allegro MedSpa treatment rooms. A Botox appointment takes between 15 and 30 minutes to complete, although the injections themselves take only minutes. Once the targeted treatment area has been determined, the surgeon or esthetician will apply a small amount of Botox Cosmetic using a tiny needle. No anesthesia is necessary. The Botox treatment is considered painless, although some patients report a quick, pinching sensation.
The Recovery from Botox Cosmetic Injections:
No downtime is required, after a Botox Cosmetic treatment; patients are back to their normal routine immediately after their appointment. Some people notice mild redness or bruising at the treatment site, but these will quickly resolve. Botox has a long history of safe and effective results, so there is little chance for complications to occur.
The results from Botox Cosmetic are not immediate. As the muscles begin to relax, over the first one to two weeks, areas will begin to smooth. Patients can expect to see their full benefits in about 14 days. After three to four months, patients will require a follow-up Botox treatment, to maintain their wrinkle reducing results.
Botox Cosmetic can be used to treat additional issues, including the reduction of excessive sweating (Hyperhidrosis) and abnormal muscle spasms. The wrinkle fighting treatment can be combined with dermal fillers for a liquid facelift, completely rejuvenating the appearance without surgery. At your consultation appointment, the best combination of treatments needed to meet your unique concerns can be determined.
