Treatment with Muscle Relaxers

Certain facial muscles contract to create expressions such as smiles and frowns. Over time, the repeated contractions of these tiny muscles cause wrinkles to form. These are called Dynamic wrinkles. BOTOX Cosmetic and Dysport are purified forms of botulinum protein, which reduce the activity of facial muscles, eliminating dynamic wrinkles such as frown lines and crow's feet.

Patients love that they can stop by our Corona Del Mar office, located conveniently near Irvine and Newport Beach, for a BOTOX Cosmetic appointment. In fact, on most days, a same-day appointment can be accommodated for this procedure that typically takes only 10 to 15 minutes. Or Alternatively, you can choose to visit us on our Toxin Days twice a month when we offer  this service for thirty percent lower price. You simply take a seat in a cushy treatment chair, lie back and relax as Dr. Bonakdar numbs the area with an ice pack and performs a few tiny injections.

Dr. Monica Bonakdar utilizes AccuVein, a hand held infrared light that show the veins under the skin when introducing a needle to the skin for injection.  This approach shows the underskin veins, undetectable to the naked eye.  Avoiding these veins during injections reduces the risk of bruising.




After Treatment

There is no recovery time needed after your BOTOX and Dysport treatment. While some patients report minor swelling, redness, or bruising, these temporary side effects can be avoided using a bruising kit cream and pill available at our office or (worst case scenario) can be covered with makeup and won't keep you from your usual routine. You can expect to see maximum results in 7 to 10 days and your great new look should last between 3 and 4 months.

To keep your results looking fresh, maintenance treatments should be performed about every 3 to 4 months. If you discontinue treatment, the frown lines will gradually return to their pre-treatment appearance.

Explore Your Options

Many of our patients choose to combine their muscle relaxer treatments with chemical peels, facials, or other rejuvenation procedures like IPL to achieve more comprehensive improvement. During your consultation with Dr. Bonakdar, you will receive a thorough analysis of your needs and a suggestion for treatments that can accomplish your goals; she will also discuss your options for combined procedures, such as BOTOX and dermal fillers like JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA.
