How Does the Treatment Work?

Both treatments, BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®, depend on a highly meticulous formulation of botulinum toxin that functions as a nerve block. This blocking occurrence will lessen the activity in the tiny muscles. The muscles mentioned are responsible for allowing us to make facial expressions. *

These small muscles enable us to make faces, such as frowning, laughing and other facial expressions. The BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® treatments will be injected into the targeted area. Once the treatment is done, or the injection is performed, these minuscule muscles remain relaxed or at rest. Hence, the treatment will reduce wrinkles, and in a way, soften the overall complexion. *

The results described or shown will vary based on a variety of factors.

Your family and friends will be surprised when they see you as they will see a well-rested look like you are way younger than your years. *

What Should I Expect During BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® Treatment?

Botulinum toxin injections such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® entail an essential process of injecting the formula into the targeted area, and they can be performed in as fast as a few minutes. Many patients have done this treatment during their lunch break. That is how fast and quick this procedure is. *

Our specialist who will administer the BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® is a highly trained and well-experienced practitioner who specializes in the skin care field. Hence, we can assure that you will only get a natural-looking result. The result will never look overdone or frozen. *

On your first consultation meeting, we will assess your facial anatomy with most final considerations on the details including any sign of aging. We make sure that we can design a treatment procedure in the most natural manner with the use of either BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® to treat your wrinkles. We also ensure that the result of the treatment will look natural as possible. *

We will ask you to contract or tighten your facial muscles in the actual injection process. Through this step, we will be able to determine where we need to inject the treatment formula based on the distinct signs of aging on your facial feature as well as your cosmetic goals. *

From that point, we will apply ice, or we may use a numbing cream to the treated area to make sure that you are comfortable and at ease, before performing BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® directly into the muscles that caused your deep lines, creases, and wrinkles. *

The whole treatment procedure will take around ten minutes and is almost not painful. We have received feedback from our clients that they only had, at most,a little discomfort. Most of our patients would describe the discomfort as the same feeling of a pinch for every injection in each procedure. Nevertheless, we have a topical anesthesia that we can use to numb the targeted area for patients who are nervous about discomfort.

We will use a fine needle in administering the chosen formula, BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® to the targeted area. After the treatment is completed, the patients can go back to what they were doing or continue their activities. The results of the treatment mentioned above should begin to appear within three to seven days or one week from the procedure. *

What Is The Expected Recovery Time?

One of the advantages of a BOTOX treatment is that you will not experience downtime. The patients can immediately go back to their normal activities including exercise right after the completion of the treatment which typically takes less than an hour to an hour, depending on the areas to be treated. *

There might be some mild effects such as swelling at the injection site and pain as well as fatigue, headache, and redness. Though, these effects are expected to subside soon. Crucial side effects can happen, but these things will be talked over with you before the procedure. *

Even though the treatment may tend to almost not painful, some patients will like to have an ice pack after their injection treatment to soothe or ease out the skin and lessen any inflammation or swelling or redness reaction. It is important however that you do not pick or touch your treated skin in the days and hours after your procedure to allow the skin to have sufficient time to heal or recover. *

When To Expect The Treatment Results?

After your BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® injectable treatment at our Medical Spa near Millbrae, you will find full results within a week. The result will depend on the signs of aging that have been treated. With this, you will see a dramatic decrease in crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, frown lines, and laugh lines. *

How do I move forward with the treatment?

We also make use of injectable facial fillers to maximize the results such as Sculptra, Restylane, Radiesse, Kybella, and Juvederm. In some special cases, the combination of dermal fillers may be even more efficient and effective than getting a surgical facelift. *

You need to take advantage of the consultation meeting because it will be a great opportunity for you to ask questions and verify some things before you even go through the procedure. We also have an extensive collection of before and after photographs of our previous patients who successfully went through our treatments.
