At Beau Visage Aesthetics, Dr. Moazemi and his team work closely with patients to offer them a wide selection of services under one roof. Patients of the Walnut Creek, CA community interested in combating the signs of aging may be worried that plastic surgery is their only option. However, with the use of cosmetic injectables, many patients can find that results are just an appointment away—without the need for surgical interventions.
A popular injectable that has been used for years in facial cosmetic enhancement is that of Botox. Botox has become a household name, and is continually touted as one of the most effective ways to address wrinkles and folds on the face. Botox is formulated using botulinum toxin type A, which can inhibit muscle contractions. When a doctor injects Botox into the muscles of the face, these muscles relax and therefore result in the smoothing of the skin. This injectable is best used for dynamic wrinkles, such as crow’s feet, glabellar lines, and forehead folds. Results last several months before patients return for reinjection. In most cases, results last approximately six months or less, depending on the area being treated and the body’s response to the medication.
Who is a candidate for Botox?
Most adult patients with dynamic wrinkles and folds can benefit from Botox injections. Botox has been cleared for not only cosmetic use, but also for the treatment of hyperhidrosis, overactive bladder, and chronic migraines, just to name a few. Patients find that Botox injections with a trained and experienced professional such as Dr. Moazemi provide long-lasting and natural results. During a consultation appointment, Dr. Moazemi will evaluate a patient to determine if they are a good fit for Botox, or if they should consider alternative cosmetic injectables such as dermal fillers. Botox can be used alongside dermal fillers for more dramatic results.
