What is Botox?

Botox is a purified and sterilized form of botulinum toxin type A that is injected into the tissue under the skin, primarily in the facial area.

This neurotoxin inhibits the contraction of the muscles, relaxing them, which causes the appearance of lines and wrinkles to disappear. Botox is a procedure that will need to be repeated in order to have your desired results maintained.

However, it is the perfect treatment for anyone looking for a renewed and fresh look that is simple and quick, with little to no downtime.

Botox vs Other Neuromodulators

There are several different neuromodulators used today, but Botox remains the gold standard for our patients at Tri Valley Plastic Surgery serving Walnut Creek and around the world. Not only is it FDA approved to reduce lines and wrinkles, this unique formula can be used to treat lazy eye, excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), an overactive bladder, neck spasms (cervical dystonia), and more. Ask for the best!

The Benefits of Botox

Injections require little preparation, procedure time, or recovery! Maintaining your desired results is as easy as a 15-30 minute appointment every 3 to 4 months, and Botox will minimize those fine lines around your eyes and mouth, instantly making you look younger. Also, because it is precisely placed to only target key areas, you will be left with a natural and beautiful look.

Am I a Candidate for Botox?

Botox is a safe and noninvasive treatment, an ideal option for most adults looking to refine the effects of aging. However, it is not recommended for patients who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or who have a history of neuromuscular diseases. The aesthetic specialists at Tri Valley Plastic Surgery will consult with you and help you decide if Botox is right for you.

What are some concerns you can treat with Botox injections?

  • Crow's Feet
  • Frown lines (the lines between your eyes)
  • Laugh lines
  • Glabellar Lines (the lines above your eyebrows)
  • Other fine lines and wrinkles that may affect how you see yourself

Consultation and Preparation

Dr. Williams and his team of aesthetic specialists believe consultations are an imperative step to ensure your satisfaction. When you arrive for your consultation in our Walnut Creek office, we will take the time to listen to your concerns and work with you to find the best way to meet your needs.

Because it is a simple, noninvasive procedure, there is little for you to do to prepare. Your specialist will provide you with detailed instructions and explain what you should expect on the day of your treatment.

Some things you can do to prepare:

  • Make sure to ask the questions. We want you to feel confident in your knowledge of the treatment and your expectations of the results.
  • Choose an appointment time that won't leave you feeling stressed or rushed. This should be a relaxing time as you treat yourself to a new look.
  • Try to cut back on alcohol and smoking for a few days before. Not doing so can slow down your healing time.
  • Get that workout in. It is recommended to avoid strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours after, plus it will release some endorphins to soothe your nerves and minimize any discomfort.
  • Please be transparent with your specialist about any medications you are taking


Botox treatments are an easy and efficient way to rejuvenate your skin. At your appointment, our aesthetic specialist will cleanse the treatment area and apply a topical anesthetic to assist with any immediate discomfort you might feel. A series of injections will then be made, the whole process generally taking from 15-30 minutes. After Botox Walnut Creek patients usually report feeling little to no discomfort and a slight pinch at the injection site.

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

Since Botox is a nonsurgical treatment, you should expect to be on your way with no downtime after your appointment. You will start to see the lines and wrinkles disappear in the first few days, but know that it can take up to 2 weeks to get the full results of your Botox treatment.

To ensure the best results:

  • Do not engage in strenuous exercise for 24 hours after their procedure, and avoid lying down for the first four hours.
  • Avoid alcohol for a few days following treatment, and limit your sun exposure to discourage bruising.
  • Limit how much you touch the injection sites and try to avoid facial massages or vigorous rubbing for 1-2 days.

Some Walnut Creek Botox patients report slight tenderness, which is perfectly normal and will subside quickly on its own.
