The onset of wrinkles can lead to considerable self-consciousness and emotional discomfort. But while wrinkles are natural, they’re not irreversible. We use the latest and safest medical techniques to address the root cause of wrinkles and help you achieve smooth, youthful skin.

Eliminate Your Wrinkles

Dynamic wrinkles, also known as expression lines, appear because of the overuse of facial muscles to produce expressions, such as laughing and frowning. The more you use your facial muscles, the stronger they become, which, in turn, leads to deeper and more permanent wrinkles. We administer Botox in Marin County , safe and painless injections that temporarily freeze your facial muscles and soften the associated wrinkles, helping you reclaim your youthful, wrinkle-free skin.

What is Botox?

Botox is a cosmetic injection that softens and reduces the appearance of dynamic wrinkles on the face. Botox is FDA-approved for correcting frown lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet around the eyes, and horizontal forehead lines. But we can also use Botox for numerous other dynamic wrinkles and expression lines, such as the bunny lines around the nose and the perioral lines around the mouth. With a few injections, we can suppress the signs of aging.

Botox Can Treat:

  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • Vertical frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Bunny lines around the bridge of the nose
  • Perioral lines around the lips
  • Cobblestone chin, aka chin creases
  • Other dynamic wrinkles on the face

Advantages of Botox:

  • Minimally invasive treatment
  • No pain or discomfort during treatment
  • No harsh side effects or complications
  • Addresses the root cause of dynamic wrinkles
  • Prevents the onset of new wrinkles
  • Improves overall skin texture
  • Concludes within 30 minutes
  • No post-treatment downtime

How Does Botox Work?

Botox in Marin County belongs to a category of injections known as neuromodulators. Botox is made of botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin protein that can temporarily block the transmission of signals from nerve endings to targeted muscles. When injected into targeted facial muscles, Botox can temporarily freeze or paralyze the muscles responsible for your expression lines. Over time, the unwanted dynamic wrinkles smoothen and diminish, helping you achieve wrinkle-free skin. Early intervention with Botox can also help you avoid or delay the onset of wrinkles.

Botox FAQs

What happens during the Botox treatment?

The Botox treatment is fairly simple. The medical provider carefully examines your facial skin, discusses your goals and concerns, and marks the treatment spots. The appropriate units of Botox are carefully injected into the targeted facial tissues using ultrafine needles, usually after administering topical anesthesia. You might feel a little pinch, but no pain or discomfort.

How long does Botox treatment take?

The entire Botox treatment concludes within 30 minutes.

What are the side effects of Botox?

Botox in Novato involves minimal post-treatment side effects, such as redness, swelling, lumping, tenderness, and bruising around the injection sites. The side effects dissipate within a few days.

Is there any downtime after Botox?

Botox doesn’t involve any downtime. You may resume your activities and work immediately, but you should avoid strenuous workouts for a day.

When will I see the results?

You will start seeing improvements after 3 to 4 days, but the final results appear after 2 weeks.

How long do the results last?

The Botox results may last for 3 to 4 months, following which you’ll need additional treatments. Most patients undergo 3 to 4 Botox sessions per year.
