BOTOX Cosmetic in San Diego

BOTOX® Cosmetic by Allergan is one of the most popular options for non-surgical facial rejuvenation. BOTOX® can be used to treat lines and wrinkles that give the face an aged appearance. The revolutionary BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment is available at Dr. Mark Mofid’s office, serving San Diego and surrounding areas.

What Is BOTOX®?

BOTOX® is an FDA-approved injectable product that contains a purified form of a protein known as botulinum toxin type A. BOTOX® can prevent nerves from signaling the muscles to contract. this causes temporary paralysis of the muscle. BOTOX® is commonly used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face by temporarily paralyzing facial muscles. It is also used to treat chronic migraines and excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis).

The Benefits of BOTOX® Injections

BOTOX® Cosmetic has achieved fame for its ability to reduce the prominence of frown lines between the brows, crows feet around the eyes, forehead wrinkles, chin wrinkles, as well as other signs of facial aging. An experienced facial plastic surgeon understands facial anatomy and is aware of the importance of achieving a natural result.

What to Expect During Your BOTOX® Treatment

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a 10-minute treatment that involves a few tiny injections in specific areas of the face. The injections will be administered in spots that are chosen based on the location of each patient’s frown lines and his or her ability to move the underlying facial muscles. Discomfort is minimal and there is no recovery time associated with BOTOX® injections. Patients are generally quite happy with their results – nearly 90 percent of patients who receive BOTOX® Cosmetic note improvements in their appearances. These improvements can last up to four months.

There may be some mild swelling and redness around the injection sites, but these issues should subside over the next day or so. Some patients may choose to lie down for an hour following their treatment. it can take several weeks to see the results of your treatment.
