Botox Goes With Everything
There are so many things we buy because we think we are treating ourselves, only to have them wind up collecting dust in a closet or attic. Why not treat yourself to fewer fine lines and wrinkles instead? Botox offers an easy, minimally invasive option for preventing and reversing the signs of aging.
A single 15-minute treatment can increase feelings of confidence and youthfulness for months. By investing in yourself with Botox, you are choosing a treatment that can impact virtually every aspect of your daily life. Tri Valley Plastic Surgery’s highly skilled aesthetic specialists are here to help you invest in yourself. Look younger and feel younger with Botox in Oakland at Tri Valley Plastic Surgery.
Botox is a neurotoxin which, when injected, inhibits the contraction of muscles. As targeted muscles are prevented from fully contracting, the wrinkles which can be caused by such contractions can be prevented, reduced, or eliminated.
The procedure is fast and requires no downtime, making Botox injections an increasingly popular anti-aging cosmetic practice. There are so many ways in which we express ourselves. From the words we use, to our signature aesthetic, to our facial expressions, we are always sending a message about who we are, what we think, or how we feel. Botox offers us added control over the messages we’re sending. Signs of aging such as “11” lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines are caused by the repeated contraction of facial muscles when we smile, squint, front, or perform any number of other facial movements. For patients in Oakland Botox injections can eliminate such unwanted signs of aging, and bring the messages you want to send front and center.Request a Consultation
Dublin Botox treatments at Tri Valley Plastic Surgery offer a number of benefits, ranging from treatment efficacy and tolerability, to practical benefits such as affordability and convenience. Botox is often used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, drooping brows, and down-turned mouths. It is also commonly used as a preventative measure against the development of fine lines and wrinkles.
As with other injectable treatments, Botox injections also prompt a natural healing process within the skin which boosts the production of proteins like collagen and elastin to improve skin’s hydration, elasticity, and the appearance of youthfulness. Botox treatment typically takes 15 to 30 minutes and does not require any downtime. It is considered a “lunch break” procedure, as it can easily be performed in a short amount of time without preventing patients from returning to work immediately.
When you arrive at our inviting Oakland plastic surgery facility for your Botox treatment, you will be warmly welcomed by one of our aesthetic specialists. Our specialists will prep the treatment area by cleansing and applying a topical anesthetic to the area to reduce discomfort. Multiple injections will be administered into the skin, and you will likely feel a slight pinch upon each injection.
No downtime is necessary. After Botox Oakland patients should be able to return to their regular daily activities immediately after their treatment. It is recommended to gently move your face around following treatment to encourage the Botox to travel and settle to the areas where it is most needed.
It is also important to avoid irritating the area in which Botox was injected by rubbing or excessive touching, and facials should be avoided for 24 hours. Alcohol, blood thinners, sun exposure, and exposure to heat should also be avoided for 24 hours. Botox patients should not lie down for at least 4 hours following treatment, and should not engage in strenuous exercise for 24 hours. Injection sites may be red or tender following your treatment, but these side effects are normal and should resolve without further treatment.

Botox injection results will take 1 to 2 weeks to appear. As Botox is slowly metabolized by the body, results will begin to fade 3 to 6 months after treatment. Follow-up treatments are recommended every 3 to 4 months in order to maintain results. Patients can expect smoothed lines and a lifted appearance in all areas treated with Botox.
While Botox is often grouped in with dermal fillers, its function is not consistent with that of fillers. Fillers are used to create or replenish volume in targeted areas, and do not affect muscular function. Botox conversely targets muscles to inhibit movements which contribute to the development of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging and does not create an increase in volume.
Botox is FDA approved as a safe treatment option for the prevention or reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.
There is no set age at which a person should start receiving Botox injections. It may be used by patients in their 20’s as a preventative measure, patients in their 30’s when fine lines typically begin to appear, or later when more significant signs of aging have set in. Botox is most effective as a preventative treatment, or as a treatment for mild to moderate signs of aging.
Botox is a great option for healthy adults who would like to improve their quality of life by treating or preventing fine lines or wrinkles, or lifting specific areas of the face. Botox treatment of mild to moderate signs of aging typically yields the most effective results. More advanced signs of aging may be better treated through other procedures. Patients with heavy eyelids may not be ideal candidates for Botox. Patients who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or who have a history of neuromuscular diseases should not receive Botox.
