Your face can be a tell-tale sign of the aging process, especially your upper face, where lines develop on the forehead, the brow, and around the eyes. Fortunately, Botox treatments at a nearby Newport Beach dermatology office can help address these issues and keep your face looking young and fresh.

Botox is approved by the American Academy of Dermatology for facial rejuvenation. All of the problems mentioned above (horizontal forehead lines, creases between the brows, and smile lines around the eyes) have proven to be highly responsive to Botox treatments. The treatments not only remove such lines, but can also prevent the development of lines and wrinkles if the treatment is continued regularly. Botox can also be utilized to elevate the lateral eyebrows and reduce hooding of the upper eyelids.

During the Botox treatment, a small amount of medicine is injected into carefully selected facial muscles. Individually tailored treatment will allow for substantial softening of the lines of the upper face, while allowing for normal facial expression involving the eyebrows and eyes.  To maintain results Botox treatments are typically repeated every three to four months.

Patient receiving Botox treatment can generally return to regular activities almost immediately although there may be slight marking or bruises from the needle work. Beyond that, there are typically no side effects to Botox treatments, and they have proven to be a valuable tool in fighting the signs of aging. In fact, it is one of the most popular facial rejuvenation techniques used in every Newport Beach dermatology office.
