Botox Non-Surgical Wrinkle Treatments in San Jose & San Francisco
What is Botox treatment?
Botox is a prescription injection treatment that is used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe wrinkles and frown lines. It is a non-surgical option for patients who would like to enhance and create a more youthful appearance of facial skin– reducing wrinkles in the forehead, around the eyes, or along the mouth.
Why is Botox used?
Botox is most commonly used to correct the following facial creases:
- Crow’s feet (lines on the corners of the eye)
- Forehead furrows (horizontal lines above the eyes and below the hairline)
- Frown lines (wrinkles between the eyebrows)
Are there risks involved with using Botox?
When Botox is performed by an experienced doctor, the procedure is relatively safe. Some of the possible side effects can include:
- Swelling or pain in the injection site
- Eye dryness
It is important to choose your doctor carefully when deciding to use Botox. The procedure has the best results when it is done by an experienced professional. Speak with our experienced physicians at eos sleep to determine whether Botox treatment is right for you.
What does Botox injection treatment involve?
While Botox pain is usually minimal, skin numbing may be possible before the procedure (check with your doctor). During injections, your eos sleep doctor will inject a small needle into the treatment area to inject the Botox solution. The amount of injection used will vary depending on the size of the area being treated.
After the procedure, patients can usually return to everyday activities right away. Patients should take care not to rub or massage the area that was injected, as it may spread the Botox to other areas.
What are the benefits of undergoing Botox treatment?
Benefits of using Botox for facial lines and wrinkles include:
- Minimal pain
- Improvements are normally visible within a couple days
- Results usually last about three months or longer
