Reduce Wrinkles and Fine Lines with Botox in Sacramento, CA
Do you have unsightly wrinkles and frown lines that you wish you could smooth out and erase? Now you can turn back the hands of time with Botox, a highly refined toxin that reduces muscle activity and prevents the contraction of muscles that cause horizontal forehead lines, vertical frown lines, and crow’s-feet. And if the corners of your mouth sag, Botox can take care of that, too.
Will I have that frozen Botox Look?
The infamous Botox face is the result of too much product being injected into the horizontal forehead lines. That’s why it’s important to work with an experienced doctor who will be able to accurately determine how much Botox is required to achieve your desired results.
Is Botox Painful?
Like any injection on the face, Botox injections can be mildly uncomfortable – especially between the eyebrows. You may request that a topical anesthesia be applied to the injection site a few minutes prior to the procedure.
Are there any side effects?
Like any cosmetic procedure, there can be some side effects, but rarely do people have adverse reactions to Botox injections. In about one to five percent of people, droopy eyelids or eyebrows can occur, but this reaction typically goes away within a week.
Is there an ideal age to get Botox?
No! There is no particular age that is best for Botox injections. If you have wrinkles, Botox is always a great option, regardless of age.
How long does Botox last?
You can expect Botox to last 3 to 4 months.
What kind of results can I expect?
Results typically begin to appear in a few days and improve of the course of two weeks. If you’re getting Botox for a big event, you may want to do so about two weeks in advance.
Will it be obvious that I got Botox?
When done correctly, Botox injections will leave you looking fresher and more youthful than ever. Your friends may notice that you look more youthful, but when injections are done by a skilled doctor, it will not be obvious. When not done by a skilled physician, the telltale signs of a bad Botox job are a shiny forehead and crows feet that don’t move when you laugh or smile.
