Botox in Newport Beach, Orange County CA

Since the very fortunate, yet accidental discovery of botulinum toxin’s cosmetic capabilities, over 11.8 million people have chosen Botox (onabotulinumtoxinA) to reduce and prevent wrinkles. Botox was initially FDA approved in 1989 for treatment of crossed eyes and involuntary eyelid blinking and spasms, and in 2002 was FDA approved for cosmetic uses. The procedure is extremely simple, safe, and effective, prompting patients to routinely have Botox injected as a way to prevent and treat fine lines and wrinkles.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q: How does Botox work?
    A: Botox was quickly discovered to have a very beneficial cosmetic result when injected in the muscles known to contract and form wrinkles on the face. By weakening or immobilizing certain muscles completely (discretion at the hands of the provider administering and situation dependant) it was noted that pre-existing wrinkles were relaxed and softened, if not completely smoothed out. Once immobilizing muscles, Botox helps to prevents muscles from contracting and forming new wrinkles or deepening existing wrinkles.
  • Q: What areas is botox used for?
    A: The most common areas for botox injection are the forehead, glabella, and crow’s feet. The Glabella, also known as the area between the eyebrows, is often referred to as “11’s”, as that is the appearance of the wrinkles formed in this location. Also, Glabella is sometimes referred to as the H-lines or frown lines, located in between the eyebrows. Skilled injectors may also use botox to treat fine lines around the lips, neck, and for armpits to decrease sweating.
  • Q: How long does Botox last?
    A: The length of a patient’s result can vary, but the duration typically averages 3-4 months with some patients experiencing results up to 6 months.
  • Q: What is the recovery like for Botox?
    A: Patients love Botox because there is little to no downtime. Botox is minimally invasive and any bruising is often light in color, short lived and easily camouflaged under tinted moisturizer or a light layer of cover up. Patients may return to normal activities immediately following administration of Botox, and are usually recommended to avoid vigorous exercise following Botox to minimize swelling and bruising.
  • Q: Do men get Botox?
    A: Yes! Men have taken a strong interest in Botox and have loved the natural, more youthful results that they have seen with little maintenance.
