Botox Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe dynamic wrinkles such as frown lines, worry lines, crow’s feet, neck bands and laugh lines.

Here is when Botox and other muscle relaxing injections come to rescue

We need muscles to move, eat and laugh, but too much muscle contraction can lead to problems ranging from painful jaws and teeth grinding to all kinds of lines and wrinkles. Here is when Botox and other muscle relaxing injections come to rescue! When injected carefully into the muscles, Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are capable of blocking the transmission of signals from the nerve terminals into the muscles, reducing and preventing muscle contraction in a controlled and reversible way. These medications can be used for a number of different conditions including migraines, muscle spasms, excessive sweating (also called Hyperhidrosis), TMJ […]

We commonly use Botox to relax the facial muscles, easing out the lines and wrinkles that are caused by excessive use of those muscles, but new evidence shows that Botox does more than this. According to a new study published in the Journal of American Medical Association (Bonaparte J […]

4 Reasons Why Botox or Dysport Do Not Work

Botox is a wonderful medication and an integral part of any effective anti-aging and whole-face rejuvenation strategy. For years, injection of Botulinum toxin type A (including Botox and Dysport) have remained the number one non-surgical cosmetic medical procedure in the US and around the world – even more popular than dermal fillers, laser hair removal, microdermabrasion or IPL!

Here, we look at some of the reasons why Botox or Dysport fail to do the magic to smooth out the fine lines and wrinkles! But first, […]

How Often Should I Get Botox Treatments?

In general, you should plan to receive BOTOX® treatments every three to four months. Each of our Newport Beach patients is different, so your specific results may vary. During your consultation, we will discuss your specific needs and beauty goals to determine an injection schedule that is right for you. BOTOX works by blocking nerve impulses to the affected muscles. This helps the muscles in the injected area to relax, leaving you with a reduced appearance of wrinkles in the treatment area. You may see improvement for up to 30 days and the treatment gradually wears off over the course […]
