Breast Augmentation Temecula Plastic Surgery Botox Temecula


Botox in Temecula provides real, noticeable results, doesn’t require surgery, and there is no recovery time.  That’s probably why 11 million patients have chosen botox.  Botox targets specific areas of the face to eliminate wrinkles, especially between the eyebrows, over the forehead and around the lower eyelids and Crow’s feet area.  Botox Temecula is quite versatile and can be used to treat headaches and for cosmetic purposes and is performed by itself or combined with other procedures.  If you have facial wrinkles, call to schedule an appointment with Dr. David Newman, Plastic Surgeon (Temecula) to discuss all of your options.

 

What is Botox Cosmetic?

BOTOX Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected under the skin and used to improve the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the brows in people 18 to 65 years of age for a short period of time (temporary).   Botox is administered by Dr. Newman (Plastic Surgeon Temecula) as a simple, nonsurgical treatment that is injected near the muscles between the brows. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows. You will notice that wrinkles begin to disappear within two to five days.  Some patients who have had very deep wrinkles between the brows may not have complete removal of these wrinkles and may require a filler to resolve them completely.  The placement of a filler to remove lines and wrinkles can be performed at the same time as botox.  At your botox consultation, Dr. Newman will make recommendations to achieve your be look. 

Botox can also effectively treat and remove wrinkles in other parts of the face including the Crow's foot area (the area outside the corner of the eye).  Another area to help relieve the presence of wrinkles is the forehead.  Some patients can even have a "nonsurgical brow lift" with the help of Botox.

What does Botox Cosmetic treat?

Botox cosmetic is used mainly to stop muscle function in certain specific small muscles of the face to remove and diminish wrinkles.  When used in these areas patients can look refreshed and youthful, and of course, have fewer wrinkles.  Some patients are concerned about having a "frozen" facial appearance.  This tends to happen when Botox is used for other areas of the face not approved by the FDA, like the mouth and smile.  When Botox is used for the area between the brows, over the forehead and in the Crow's foot areas, almost all of the muscles of the face remain strong and patients get maximal effect without the "frozen" look. 

Botox can also help to decrease certain headaches by stopping function of certain muscles which are thought to trigger headaches.  Patients who have Botox treatment to treat wrinkles often report fewer headaches.  Botox is also used to treat hyperhidrosis, or increased sweating of the underarms and hands.  There are many other noncosmetic uses for Botox.

One of the effects of Botox which Dr. Newman is especially interested in relates to it's use to preview what one may look like after cosmetic surgery.  In addition to decreasing wrinkles, Boitox can mimic the effects of eyelid surgery, brow lifts and laser resurfacing.  When patients have Botox to treat wrinkles, they can also see, in part, what they might look like if they had these other facial cosmetic surgeries. 

Safety Issues Regarding Botox Cosmetic

There has not been a confirmed serious case of spread of toxin effect away from the injection site when Botox has been used at the recommended dose to treat severe underarm sweating or when Botox has been used at the recommended dose to treat frown lines.  Please refer to the Botox Cosmetic Site for further educational information:

What happens once I decide to have Botox in Temecula?

Your botox consultation with Dr. Newman will informative and fun!  You will tell Dr. Newman what you see in the mirror and together a care plan will be created to satisfy your particular wishes.  Alternatives to Botox might also be touched upon during the discussion.  Botox injection is relatively painless and Dr. Newman has incorporated special techniques to make your Botox experience pleasurable and effective.  There is generally minimal bruising and swelling and patients may return to work after treatment, if, for example, they wish to have Botox on their lunch break.

It takes about two to five days for Botox to take effect.  You should expect Botox to last about 3 to 4 months, after which the effects are completely lost. 
There are some studies that have shown that after treatment with Botox every three or four months for two years, less frequent injections are required to maintain the same effect.

One of the wonderful aspects of Botox Cosmetic is that it is completely nonsurgical and is performed at Dr. Newman's office which is conveniently located.
