What is BOTOX Cosmetic?

BOTOX, Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau have an active protein ingredient that weakens targeted muscles that create skin wrinkles and creases. These are known as dynamic wrinkles as they develop by repeated muscle movements in the face, as well as aging.

Will BOTOX cause a plastic or fake appearance?

Some people are discouraged from trying BOTOX after seeing photographs of people who have had poorly-skilled injectors administer the BOTOX. In the hands of an experienced and highly-trained aesthetic nurse such as Leslie, the BOTOX injections result in a younger, rejuvenated, and lifted look that is very natural in appearance.

Who is a good candidate for BOTOX Cosmetic?

Candidates for BOTOX in Newport Beach are generally healthy and want to treat one or more of the following visible signs of aging on the face and neck without surgery:

  • Visible forehead lines
  • Wrinkles around the eyes
  • Deep frown lines between the eyebrows causing an angry look
  • Crow’s feet and laugh lines around the outer corners of the eyes

In addition to treating wrinkles, BOTOX, Dysport, Xeomin or Jeuveau can be used to relax the muscle that pulls down the corner of the mouth for a happier expression when the face is at rest. They can also smooth out dimpling of the chin and even lift the brows a more alert appearance.

BOTOX, Dysport®, Xeomin®, and Jeuveau treat a wide range of facial wrinkles

BOTOX Cosmetic, Dysport, Jeuveau, and Xeomin can treat wrinkles on the entire face, depending on what’s necessary. These injectables are FDA-approved for the cosmetic treatment of glabellar lines between the eyebrows, but they are also used “off label” to treat a wide variety of other facial wrinkles.

Nurse Leslie and Dr. Nirav Savalia use these injectables to treat the following areas:

  • Transverse (horizontal) forehead lines
  • “Crow’s feet” around the eyes
  • “Bunny” lines on the sides of the nose
  • Tense vertical muscles in the neck
  • Lines under the eyelids
  • Lines around the mouth
  • A heavy, square jaw

The biggest reason BOTOX is so well known is that it is so effective. I encourage you to learn about Dysport and Xeomin as well to see if these products can offer additional benefits.

BOTOX, Dysport, Xeomin, or Jeuveau?

The biggest reason BOTOX is so well known is that it is effective.  Though BOTOX is by far the most popular botulinum injectable, there is a place for Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau as well. Some people who have successfully taken our Newport Beach BOTOX treatment for years find that they can “jumpstart” and prolong their results by switching to a different filler. Nurse Leslie reviews each option in full detail and answers any questions you may have at your consultation. In addition to these injectables, Newport Beach Center for Plastic Surgery also offers a full range of facial fillers including JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, and Radiesse®.

What to expect from a BOTOX Cosmetic treatment?

Only a single treatment is needed to achieve excellent skin-smoothing results. These results will typically last for three to four months. Injections can be performed in as little as 15 minutes right in the office, and most clients report only mild, temporary discomfort from the injections. Nurse Leslie recommends BOTOX, Dysport, Xeomin, or Jeuveau injections every three months. Maintaining the treatments and results “retrains” the muscles so the expression lines fade away more and more. As time goes on, many people need less frequent treatments.

What is the recovery with BOTOX?

Most BOTOX results will last from two to five months. To maintain a refreshed, younger look, maintenance injections will be needed. BOTOX does not require any downtime, and you can return to your normal activities within a couple of hours. You may experience mild bruising or bleeding which will resolve naturally.
