At Synergy Aesthetics, one of our main specialties of skin care treatments is BOTOX. BOTOX Cosmetic is an easy and simple procedure that can temporarily smooth out moderate to severe appearance of lines and wrinkles on your brows, forehead, and eyes as a result from years of frowning, smiling, squinting, and repeated facial expressions. These injections are non-surgical and are not intended to be permanent. They also have minimal side effects and usually do not require any downtime. BOTOX treatments paralyze facial muscles that can cause wrinkle lines but also gives you more natural expressions. The effects last for a short period of time ranging from three to up to eight months.

What is BOTOX?

BOTOX is a trade name that that is derived from the botulinum toxin which is a protein produced by Clostridium botulinum. The first documented use was by Dr. Richard Clark, a plastic surgeon from Sacramento, California. After tests and trials, BOTOX Cosmetic was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for cosmetic use in April 2002 and has spread worldwide as a result. BOTOX treatments are the most popular cosmetic procedure in the United States including San Diego.

How does BOTOX work?

A BOTOX Cosmetic treatment involves regular intramuscularly injection of BOTOX Cosmetic. It temporarily slows or blocks the actual transmission of nerve impulses in your muscles and as a result paralyzes and in addition prevents wrinkles to be created. After a few short days after treatment, you will start to notice that the spasms and contractions of the affected muscles will be reduced or eliminated for a short time. You can expect many features such as frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead furrows to slowly disappear as the BOTOX injections take effect. The result will not only soften your expression lines but also the delay the development and further deepening of other lines helping you to look younger.

What can you expect during the procedure?

A fine needle with a small amount of the toxin will be injected into the targeted muscles areas and the procedure usually only takes a couple of minutes. You may feel a minor but tolerable discomfort but usually does not require any form of anesthesia.

What happens after the procedure?

You can expect to see results take effect a few days after the BOTOX Cosmetic treatment. There is almost no downtime and you can get back to your normal activities immediately.

What are the side effects of BOTOX?

There might be some temporary bruising where the procedure was done. You may also experience minor headaches that can last only a few days, but this does not happen that often. Another side effect that patients might experience is eyelid drooping. This type of drooping usually happens when the toxins moves around. We recommend do not rub the treated area for several hours after injection.
