Newport Beach, CA
As you age, your face naturally starts to lose elasticity and tone, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, and jowls.
Aging facial skin affects your self-confidence and makes you look older than you are. Wrinkles between your brows can make you look angry or concerned – even when you feel rested and cheerful! Thankfully, our Newport Beach BOTOX treatment can smooth your lines and creases, so you can achieve a vibrant, refreshed youthful look.
Believe it or not, the primary cause of wrinkles on your face is your day-to-day facial expressions. Lines on your face initially start to show as you frown, concentrate, or squint. As you age, these lines deepen, eventually etching into your skin so that they show even when your face is at rest. BOTOX (botulinum toxin – a purified, naturally-occurring protein) is an injectable cosmetic product that causes targeted muscles in your face to relax and stop contracting, preventing, and reducing wrinkles.
While BOTOX is best known for its cosmetic value, it is also FDA-approved to treat a range of medical conditions, including lazy eye and neck spasms, migraines, and others. BOTOX injections have the added benefit of being a preventative measure against the development of wrinkles – and many younger patients undergo treatments to maintain their youthful appearance for as long as possible. BOTOX is effective for the following:
Botox is effective for the following:
Hyperhidrosis is the technical term for abnormally excessive sweating that isn’t related to heat or exercise. Patients suffering from it might sweat so much it soaks through clothing and even drips off the hands. In addition to its role as a dynamic wrinkle relaxer, Botox is one of the most effective means of treating hyperhidrosis.
Both armpits can be professionally treated usually in under 10 minutes. Patients will experience only mild discomfort akin to plucking the eyebrows and a topical numbing agent can be applied before the Botox treatment to further reduce discomfort as needed. Botox for hyperhidrosis is usually covered by most insurance plans but please be sure to check with your provider.
As the sweat glands sit in the dermis, a number of tiny injections of Botox (usually roughly 50 units) are placed very near to the surface of the skin, across the axilla and in a pattern that addresses each gland equally. At this depth, the Botox treats glands within a few square centimeters. In 2 - 4 days after your Botox treatment for hyperhidrosis, you should experience an 85 - 90% reduction in sweating from the treated areas, with the full effects of the treatment seen within 2 weeks.
TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint, or temporomandibular joint dysfunction. This joint acts as a hinge, connecting your jawbone to your skull. Its dysfunction causes pain, discomfort, difficulty chewing, and a clicking or locking of the jaw.
As this and other muscles mentioned influence the grinding of teeth and clenching of the jaw, Masseter Botox can also be an effective option for reducing headaches, jaw pain and damage to teeth that typically occurs when a person is asleep and unaware of the grinding taking place.
Botox for TMJ is a fast procedure that can be completed in well under 30 minutes. It requires no downtime; patients can return to their normal activities (including meals) immediately. Though Botox isn’t yet FDA approved for treating TMJ, this procedure has a high success rate and a very low rate of potential risk or complications; any complications are rare and temporary.
Botox is an effective and FDA-approved treatment for migraine headaches. Treatments can eliminate migraine headache pain for as long as 4 months.
Injected around the pain fibers that cause the headaches, Botox enters the nerves and prevents them from releasing chemicals that would otherwise activate pain networks in the brain. Unlike many cosmetic uses for Botox, Botox treatments for chronic migraine headaches are covered by many insurance providers; please be sure to check with your provider.
When the upper gums are overly prominent when smiling, a person is said to have a “gummy smile.” While totally harmless, a gummy smile may lead to reduced self-confidence.
Botox treatments for a gummy smile are an excellent alternative to other gummy smile treatments that are expensive and invasive. Botox treatments for a gummy smile require less than 30 minutes, cause little to no pain or discomfort, require no downtime, and produce natural results that reveal themselves quickly.
The masseter muscle plays a large role in chewing solid foods. Visible above the back end of the jawbone on either side of the face, the muscle adds squareness and masculinity to the facial structure. While this is desirable in men, ladies prefer quite the opposite. Thankfully, without surgery or incisions, micro droplets of Botox can be safely used to reduce the prominence of these muscles and reshape the lower face to a more attractive oval with improved facial harmony.
BOTOX Lip Flip is a widely used minimally invasive option for lip enhancement that involves the very careful injection of a small amount of Botox into a particular muscle located just above the upper lip. Botox works to relax the muscle and cause your lip to roll ever so slightly, yet perceptibly, upward, thus naturally amplifying the natural shape of your lips. This naturally accentuated and restored beauty to the lips will last for up to 4 months.
