Here’s what you should know about BOTOX® Cosmetic

COSMETIC DERMATOLOGY AND SKIN CARE for NEWPORT BEACH, CORONA DEL MAR & ORANGE COUNTY, CA

Featuring BOTOX® Cosmetic for her guests, Dr. Monica Bonakdar is wholly committed to bringing her patients the most effective, least invasive facial rejuvenation treatments. According to an infographic published by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, here are some of the top things to know about the innovative BOTOX® Cosmetic:

  • The active ingredient, Botulinum Toxin, blocks the release of a neurotransmitter called “acetylcholine.” Acetylcholine is responsible for the muscle movement that causes certain types of wrinkles, such as the vertical lines between your eyebrows.
  • BOTOX® is not permanent, and eventually your body will eliminate it and the wrinkle will return.
  • BOTOX® works by being injected directly into the targeted facial muscle.
  • It takes between 3 and 7 days for the BOTOX® to begin working optimally against acetylcholine.
  • Results last between 3 and 4 months.

Of course, the great thing about BOTOX® is that it softens certain facial wrinkles without incisions or surgery of any kind. You remain fully awake for the injections, which are completed quickly, and downtime is minimal to non-existent – just the possibility of some swelling, bruising and discomfort at the injection site.
