What is Botox?
Botulinum toxin type A is the “go-to” injectable treatment on the market today. With its quick procedure time and virtually no recovery time, these injections are an excellent choice for those with a busy and hectic lifestyle. This innovative injectable is made out of a neurotoxin that is injected into the affected areas, eliciting a smoothing effect by relaxing the muscles that are creating wrinkles.
The best part about Botox Cosmetic is that it only targets the areas determined by your injector in San Diego. This means that the rest of your face is not affected, making the results of your injection as natural as possible. The procedure can be done in just under an hour, or on your lunch break! It’s a simple procedure that is relatively painless and you can go back to your daily routine right after the injection is performed. The goal of this treatment is to reduce the signs of aging by eliminating wrinkles without having to go through any lengthy and painful surgical procedures.
Botox is commonly used to treat the following:
- Crow’s Feet
- 11 Lines
- Neck Bands
- Bunny Lines (Nose)
- Gummy Smile
- Excessive Sweating
- Chin Dimpling
- Droopy Brows
Frequently Asked Questions about Botox Injections
Our expert injectors have taken the time to compile a list of some of the most frequently asked questions about these injections to help you decide if it is the right treatment for you.
Q: What kind of recovery time can I expect afterwards?
A: The recovery time is virtually nonexistent. The procedure takes about an hour, but afterwards you can return to your daily activities without having to slow down or take time off.
Q: What are the common side effects?
A: As with any procedure, there can be some side effects. Generally, there will be some redness, swelling, and numbness after the injection, but these will diminish within a few days.
Q: What is the recommended number of treatments?
A: Just one session is necessary for optimal results! That is the beauty of injectables; they are quick and simple procedures that have fast results and virtually no recovery time!
Q: When will I be able to see results?
A: Botox Cosmetic injections have an amazing timeframe for visible results. You can usually see results right after the treatment and the full effects will be visible within just a few days.

Q: How long do results last?
A: The general rule is that your treatment results will last up to 6 months. Every patient is different, but once the muscles begin contracting again, it is safe to schedule a new treatment.
