You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to 4 months for moderate to severe frown lines.
WHAT ARE COMMON USES OF BOTOX® COSMETIC?
BOTOX Cosmetic is most commonly used to treat the vertical frown lines just above the nose, horizontal lines of the forehead, and crow’s feet.
HOW DOES BOTOX® COSMETIC WORK?
A combination of factors can cause facial lines. It’s not just about the cellular changes that may occur, or reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment. Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines in adults – to help them look visibly smoother.
HOW BOTOX IS USED FOR TREATMEANT?
The actual injection process takes a quick 10 minutes. Newport Coast Dermatology will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you. Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch. Newport Coast Dermatology may use ice to numb the treatment area. Or, if you are concerned about discomfort, we may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment. Treatment requires minimal downtime. So you can return to your daily routine immediately after you leave your our office.
HOW MANY INJECTIONS MAY I NEED?
For the crow’s feet area, your specialist will inject 3 areas of the muscle that frames the side of the eye. This will be repeated on the muscle that frames the other eye.
For the frown lines area, your specialist will administer 5 injections into the muscles between your brows and in your forehead.
For the forehead lines area, your specialist will administer 5 injections into a muscle in your forehead.
For facial shaping and slimming, we use Botox into the jaw muscles on both sides to contour and shape overactive muscles. An added bonus to this treatment is that it diminishes teeth grinding and tension that leads to headaches.
We are pleased to add MesoTox which is one of the hottest new uses of dilute Botox or Xeomin all across the face to decrease shine but still give your complexion a glow. This technique pioneered in Korea and is known as the “glass facial”.The MesoTox Facial offers instant Instagram worthy ‘glass skin’.
Traditional botox is injected intramuscular and irons out and prevents deep creases in the skin as you know. MesoTox, on the other hand, targets pores to create an all-over smoothing effect by tightening them to reduce their appearance and make skin look brighter. It is also beautiful for diminishing accordion lines in the cheeks.
It can also banish breakouts because sweat and oil glands are affected by the procedure, too. As pores essentially become smaller from the procedure, sebum stops forming. Excess oil can block pores and hair follicles, leading to breakouts, Skin-Tox helps to decrease oil production.
Secondly, the needling stimulates collagen production which stimulates cell to cell communication targeting keratinocytes, melanocytes & fibroblasts. The 3 main cells within the skin.
SKINTOX is the unrivalled medi-facial that will give you ‘filter fabulous skin’ in real life.
