What is BOTOX®?


One of the most familiarized solutions to bring out youthful skin, BOTOX® is a name many medical experts can trust. This effective injectable can temporarily correct the appearance of crow’s feet and fine lines. Using a tiny amount of highly purified botulinum toxin protein, BOTOX® can smooth out lines from aging. Our medical experts can help determine if BOTOX® may be the right treatment option for you. Contact us today to schedule your consultation!

How does BOTOX® work?


The older we get, the more our skin will gradually lose volume that keeps us looking youthful. With this loss of volume, our facial muscles will operate closer to the surface of the skin. The more we contract our muscles, the more visible wear and tear will become in our facial profile. Using purified botulinum toxin protein, BOTOX® is able to slow down facial muscle activity to help smoothen age lines for a younger glow!

How many injections of BOTOX® will I need?


During the initial consultation, each patient will discuss their aesthetic goals and medical history with our medical experts. Based on this information, our medical staff will determine how many administrations of BOTOX® each individual patient may need. Consult with our staff to create a treatment plan that can help keep you looking youthful!

What results can I expect?


Many people will experience distinctive results; some patients may experience results faster than others based on their body chemistry. Patients who choose BOTOX® usually start to see results of silkier-looking skin within the first 2 days after treatment. Younger-looking results from BOTOX® can last up to 4 months!

Smooth skin is hard to hold on to as we age. Northern California Wellness wants to help tighten your grip. With BOTOX®, younger-looking skin can be here to stay!

How often should I get botox injections?


Botox injections are usually recommended once every four months for most people. Since everyone’s body is different, you may need your injections more or less frequently. You can enjoy continuous results all year long with a treatment plan that fits your schedule, budget, and aesthetic goals.
 
The duration of your results may be determined by a few factors. You can calculate how long your results will last by looking at the areas of your face being treated, the depth of the dynamic wrinkles, and how expressive you are with your facial muscles. Your treatment dosage will even determine how long your results will last. In order to determine your ideal treatment frequency, we’ll take all of these factors into account when creating your treatment plan.

How long does it take for botox injections to really work?


After Botox injections, the effects usually begin one to three days later. The effect may last three months or longer depending on the problem being treated, and follow-up injections are required to maintain the real effect.

Is botox used for other treatments as well?


By blocking certain chemical signals from nerves, Botox injections prevent muscles from contracting. These injections are most commonly used to temporarily relax the facial muscles that cause wrinkles around the eyes and forehead. Injections of Botox can also be used to treat conditions that affect the body’s function.

Is botox cosmetic safe?


When performed by an experienced medical professional, like a doctor, Botox injections are relatively safe. The use of Botox must be under the supervision of a doctor. To avoid side effects, injections must be placed precisely. When Botox therapy is administered incorrectly, it can be dangerous. Consult your med spa doctor or seek out a doctor with experience administering Botox treatments who specializes in your condition.

It is important to speak with a skilled and properly certified doctor before undergoing the procedure so they can advise you and help you determine if it is right for you.
 
Dr. Dunbar, M.D., M.P.H. and her experienced team at Northern California Wellness, medical spa specialize in Botox injections and various other procedures that they administer safely in a controlled environment.

What are the side effects of botox?


Most of the side effects occur close to where the Botox is injected. Redness, infection, bruising, and pain can occur in the affected area.
 
Using this medication to relax muscles may cause dizziness, respiratory infections such as colds and flu, pain, mild difficulty swallowing, headaches, nausea, and muscle weakness. In addition to double vision, drooping or swollen eyelids, dry eyes, tearing, eye irritation, reduced blinking, and increased sensitivity to light, you may also experience double vision.
 
You need to let your doctor or pharmacist know if in fact any of these effects persist or worsen. There may be a need for eye drops/ointments, an eye patch, or other treatments.

Are there alternatives to botox injections?


According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Botox remains the number one minimally invasive cosmetic procedure in the country. There are about 4.4 million procedures performed annually for the past few years, including when the country was closed for nearly half of 2020. It is possible to enjoy the myriad benefits of Botox even if you are unable, or unwilling, to try it. For those who do not wish to undergo Botox, there are a number of alternatives to consider.
