What Does Botox Do?
It is made from a purified protein called botulinum toxin that affects the neurotransmitters that cause muscle movements. It essentially causes those muscles to “freeze,” which makes the skin look smooth.
Getting Botox—The Appointment
You’ll be relieved to know that your Botox session can be done in as little time as your lunch hour, and you can even go right back to your day afterward! A dermatologist at one of our offices in Temecula, Menifee, Murrieta, Solana Beach, Fallbrook, San Marcos, or Oceanside, CA, will apply a local anesthetic before doing a series of injections around the wrinkled areas. That may include the forehead, crow’s feet around the eyes, and frown lines around the mouth.
More than a decade after it was first used in dermatology, it is considered one of the best treatments for frown lines. The appointment for Botox usually only takes a few minutes and is easy to tolerate—this means that you won't have to wait weeks for your skin to heal, and there’s no need for anesthesia. Botox shows significant results in as little as a few days and lasts for months. When you want to renew your appearance again, just schedule another short appointment at your convenience.
