When the signs of aging start to make their presence felt around the face, it is not always easy to accept! Whether the culprit is wrinkles and fine lines, lost volume, or skin laxity, it makes complete sense if you are looking for a way to refresh and revitalize your skin. At Northern California Wellness, our medical aestheticians provide numerous treatments to help with facial signs of aging, including Botox injections! If you think you could benefit from Botox injections, we would be delighted to hear from you and provide this service to you.

What is the best treatment for an aging face?


There are numerous treatments that can help with facial aging signs in highly effective ways! As such, it is difficult to say with any certainty which is the best one, as patients will respond differently to each treatment option. However, one treatment option that is highly effective for treating facial aging signs for a wide range of individuals is Botox injections.

Botox injections are highly effective in treating fine lines and wrinkles, such as crow’s feet lines around the eyes, frown lines, and forehead lines.

How can I stop my face from aging?


As we age, our skin loses elasticity and firmness due to decreased collagen production, which is a protein that is essential to the structural integrity of every connective tissue in your body, including the skin. With that loss of elasticity and firmness, our skin also loses much of its ability to bounce back into shape after the repeated muscle contractions that occur with any facial expression, such as frowning, smiling, squinting, or surprised expressions. As a result, wrinkles and fine lines settle in at the site of such muscle contractions as we get older.

In order to stop or delay such facial aging signs, Botox injections are a great option. Botox injections function as a neuromodulator, in that they block communication signals between your brain and the nerve endings in the treatment area. As a result, muscle activity in the treatment area is suspended for an extended period, allowing your skin the time and space it needs to rest and build back elasticity and firmness in the treatment area, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles in the process.

In addition to Botox injections, it is still important to maintain a healthy skincare routine to maintain results and to keep your skin healthy!

Where can I get Botox on my face?


Botox injections are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in treating fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, eyebrows, and forehead. As such, many patients find Botox injections to be safe and highly effective for treating crow’s feet lines around the eyes, forehead lines, and frown lines.

How long between treatments should I get botox?


While Botox injections provide excellent results, the results are not permanent. Most patients find that the results from Botox injections typically last between three to four months before fine lines and wrinkles start to reappear. With that in mind, the average recommended time to wait between Botox injection treatments is at least three to four months before booking another Botox injection appointment. If you come to Northern California Wellness for Botox injection treatment, our medical aesthetician can provide you with a personal recommendation for when the ideal time to return for subsequent treatment would be.
