Fine lines and wrinkles can occur much sooner than people expect–especially in areas of the face that are the most expressive.

Our eyes, brows, mouth, and forehead generally exhibit the most emotion and, over time, display dynamic wrinkles caused by the constant movement of the skin’s underlying structures. Any time we smile, laugh, or frown, our skin becomes bunched and creased, which results in frown lines, crow’s feet, and more.

But what’s life without emotion? You deserve the best of both worlds: emotive, full expression, and youthful skin. That’s why Capitis Medical & Aesthetics is proud to offer BOTOX® Cosmetic. This tried-and-true neuromodulator reduces muscle contractions in targeted areas to minimize the appearance of dynamic wrinkles while allowing for a full range of movement and expression.

What Is BOTOX® Cosmetic?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most popular cosmetic neuromodulator for wrinkle and fine line reduction. Neuromodulators are a type of cosmetic injection that uses botulinum toxin to inhibit muscle contraction to minimize the appearance of existing wrinkles, and with extended use, can prevent future wrinkles from occurring.

What Are the Benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetic?

For patients who do not need surgical treatment or who are disinterested in surgery for facial aging, BOTOX® Cosmetic is a fantastic alternative. Easily administered by a licensed practitioner in-office, BOTOX® Cosmetic provides noticeable improvement to dynamic wrinkles with little to no downtime. Other benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetic include:

  • Minimized appearance of crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles
  • Easy, in-office treatment with minimal pain and recovery
  • Applicable for adult patients of all ages
  • Provides preventative results with extended use
  • Quick, noticeable results
  • Fantastic alternative to invasive procedures

What Are My BOTOX® Cosmetic Options?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is ideal for dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle contractions. It does not treat static wrinkles. Static wrinkles are typically around the mouth, lips, and nose and are caused by a loss of volume in the face. To treat these areas, injectable fillers are ideal and can easily be added to your non-surgical rejuvenation treatment plan.

Am I a Candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic Treatment?

Candidates for BOTOX® Cosmetic have mild to moderate fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, forehead, and brows. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections can also be a prejuvenation treatment for younger patients with mild wrinkling. Candidates should also:

  • Be generally in good health
  • Have realistic expectations for results
  • Are not allergic to BOTOX® Cosmetic or any of its ingredients
  • Would like a minimally invasive, moderate improvement to dynamic wrinkles

How Is BOTOX® Cosmetic Administered?

Prior to your BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment, you will have a comprehensive consultation with one of our experienced cosmetic injectors. During your consultation, your treatment area(s) will be examined, and you can discuss your goals and concerns for the procedure before your technician creates a custom treatment plan that best suits your needs.

Your expert BOTOX® Cosmetic injector may prepare your skin for treatment by removing makeup or lotions from the treatment area. This minimally invasive treatment is comfortable, but you may be given a topical anesthetic to reduce any pain. Then, your expert injector will administer the BOTOX® Cosmetic to precise muscles within your desired treatment area.

Your BOTOX® Cosmetic session may only take a few minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area and the amount of necessary revision. Following treatment, it is advised that you do not rub or massage the site and that you avoid alcohol and blood thinners.

How Much Do BOTOX® Cosmetic Treatments Cost?

The cost of BOTOX® Cosmetic in San Diego will depend on the size of the treatment area and the number of necessary administered units of the neuromodulator. Once your treatment plan has been developed, your BOTOX® Cosmetic injector can provide an accurate cost estimate.

When Will I See the Results of BOTOX® Cosmetic Treatments?

Each patient is different, so some will see results sooner than others. In most cases, it can take anywhere from 7 to 14 days for full results to be visible.

BOTOX® Cosmetic Frequently Asked Questions

What are the risks of BOTOX® Cosmetic?

Common risks of BOTOX® Cosmetic include swelling, bruising, and excessive redness. These can be avoided by abstaining from alcohol consumption and taking blood thinning or anti-inflammatory medications.

Additionally, choosing a licensed, experienced BOTOX® Cosmetic practitioner for your treatment is imperative. This is an exact procedure, as the neuromodulator must be injected into the precise muscles responsible for causing dynamic wrinkles. Injecting the wrong muscles could result in facial drooping or a loss of facial expressions.

How long will I need to maintain my BOTOX® Cosmetic results?

The results of your BOTOX® Cosmetic injections will typically last for 3-6 months, after which you will need a maintenance touch-up about twice yearly. With extended use, the muscles will become weaker from a lack of movement, which can result in minimal wrinkle visibility.
