Botox (Botulinum Toxin Type A) Newport Beach
Have you noticed the development of unwanted wrinkles? Have you found yourself wanting to erase or smooth out facial wrinkles and restore a youthful appearance? Well, today you can!
Throughout our lives, the muscles in our faces contract in order to formulate numerous expressions, such as squinting and frowning. However, these muscles may also contract involuntarily, making the formation of wrinkles inevitable. Over time, these contractions cause the formation of unsightly facial wrinkles.
At Panacea Aesthetics and Wellness Center located in Newport Beach, CA we offer Botox as a safe, effective and non-invasive method to treating facial wrinkles, revealing a smoother and rejuvenated complexion.
What is Botox?
Botox, also known as Botulinum toxin, is a naturally occurring protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. This bacterium makes several different types of protein which are called type A to type F. These varying proteins cause muscles to relax at different levels. Only Type A is used for cosmetic purposes.
When a facial expression occurs, the nerves within our body send a signal to the muscles in the face, with instructions to contract and tighten. As an FDA approved, injectable neurotoxin, Botox works by blocking this signal, therefore preventing the facial muscles from contracting and the wrinkles from forming. This, however, is not a permanent condition, with its effect typically lasting up to 4 months. The results reveal a smoother complexion and prevent future wrinkles from forming.
Botox is effective in diminishing the appearance of:
- Frown lines, or the lines formed between the eyebrows
- Crow’s feet, or the lines which form on the corners of the eyes
- Forehead furrows
- Moderate to severe facial wrinkles formed on the forehead, upper lip, corners of the mouth, chin, neck bands, nose and TMJ
- Reduce the jawline
What is the procedure like in Newport Beach?
You can expect a Botox procedure to last no more than 30 minutes and require no downtime or recovery. This allows many individuals to receive treatment, even on a busy schedule, and resume their daily actives immediately after.
Although, patients have reported minimum discomfort, a topical anesthetic may be applied to the treated area before beginning treatment, in order to provide for a more comfortable procedure. At the start of the treatment, small amounts of Botox will be injected into the underlying targeted muscles, causing the wrinkles to relax and soften. The number of injections a patient receives is dependent on several factors.
A visibly smoother complexion may become visible within 7-10 days post-treatment and typically last up to four months. However, patients may opt in receiving follow up injections in order to maintain optimal results.
Are there any side effects?
Post-treatment, Botox may cause common side effects including pain, redness and swelling at the injection site. Some patients may also experience a mild headache or mild bruising near the treated area. However, these effects are normal and should subside naturally within several hours.
It is advised for patients to not rub or massage the treated area post-treatment, as this could cause the Botox to migrate.
Patients should refrain from utilizing blood thinners, such as Aspirin, Ibuprofen and alcohol, several days prior to treatment, as these could increase the chance of bleeding and bruising. It is recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding to post-pone treatment.
