As we age, the skin on the face begins to show the effects of gravity, sun exposure, and years of facial muscle movement, often resulting in laugh lines, crow’s feet, or facial creases. While these issues may not necessitate medical concern, they can leave the individual feeling self-conscious, uncomfortable, and generally dissatisfied with his or her appearance. Fortunately, there is a way to address many of these issues with BOTOX in Irvine at Southcoast Plastic Surgery.

What is BOTOX?

Everyone is susceptible to wrinkles. Maybe you have started to notice vertical “frown lines” between your eyebrows, horizontal creases across your forehead, “crow’s feet” around your eyes, or laugh lines around the corners of your mouth. These types of wrinkles are known as dynamic lines, and they are caused by the contraction of muscles that are attached to the overlying skin. 

BOTOX is an FDA-approved, injectable treatment that helps smooth the “11 lines” between the brows, banish crow’s feet around the eyes, and correct creases around the nose, mouth, and chin. BOTOX in Ladera Ranch provides enhanced youthfulness and rejuvenation for approximately 3-4 months.

*New BOTOX patients will get their first free touch-up after the first service, if needed, and must be completed between 10 and 21 days after their treatment. Touch-ups will only treat areas treated in the first service.

*Existing BOTOX patients can receive up to 8 free units maximum for their touch-up. Additional units will be at normal cost.

How does BOTOX work?

BOTOX is made from a low, safe amount of purified botulinum toxin. This substance temporarily relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles. When injected into the targeted area, wrinkles and lines are smoothed immediately. There is no downtime or recovery after this short, simple injectable treatment. You can simply enjoy a smooth, youthful appearance.

What to Expect on Treatment Day

We will start with a consultation with Aesthetic RN Megan or Natalia, who will examine your skin and discuss your aesthetic goals. Once you are ready to begin,  BOTOX will be carefully injected into the targeted areas of your face that you would like to smooth. Focusing only on the wrinkle-producing muscles, preserving facial spontaneity, and avoiding any sign of a frozen appearance.

BOTOX treatments typically take fewer than 20 minutes to perform. There may be some mild discomfort during the injections, but because the needle is so thin, most patients report little to no pain.

Am I a Candidate for BOTOX?

Because BOTOX is such a non-invasive, safe treatment, most people are candidates. BOTOX in Orange County is best for patients who would like to achieve a more youthful appearance and reduce the signs of aging in the face. Candidates should meet the following requirements:


What Happens After my Treatment?

There is no recovery or downtime after your treatment of BOTOX in Irvine, which is why this neuromodulator is often called a “lunchtime lift.” You can stop in for a treatment and be on your way again within thirty minutes, returning to work or your usual activities with a smooth, rejuvenated, and more youthful look. This is one of the reasons why BOTOX is so popular. 

Some patients will notice small red bumps just after their treatment. These bumps will disappear in about half an hour. Do not massage or manipulate the treated areas, as this could cause the BOTOX to migrate. We advise waiting 24 hours after your treatment to exercise or drink alcohol.

How Much Do BOTOX Injections Cost? 

BOTOX prices vary depending on how much of the substance is needed. Because each patient’s individual requirements and facial structure are different, the cost of BOTOX in Irvine is different from person to person. The number of units needed to achieve the desired results and the number of treated areas will factor into the price. 

Is BOTOX Safe?

One of the reasons why injectable facial treatments like BOTOX are so popular is because they are generally considered very safe. While there are common side effects such as swelling or redness at the injection sites, neuromodulators are low risk — particularly when performed by an experienced, reputable doctor or esthetician. 
BOTOX and facial fillers are FDA-approved, simple, short treatments that have provided safe, relatively painless, and near-immediate results for millions of people.

When will I see my Botox Results and How Long do they Last?

Botox results generally begin to appear within four days after the injection, but the full effects of this anti-aging treatment may not be visible for up to two weeks. This is why it is essential to wait an adequate amount of time before pursuing a touch-up treatment. 

In terms of how long Botox results will last, you can expect this temporary option to last up to six months. Average results will begin to wear off after about four months. Similar to any injectable treatment, the longevity of the results will vary from patient to patient. An example of this would be how men commonly require Botox injections more often than women. 

During your initial consultation at South Coast Plastic Surgery, your provider will recommend a Botox treatment plan to help you reach your aesthetic goals and maintain your beautiful results for as long as possible. 

Patients may wonder whether they can continue Botox treatments over an extended period or if they should take a break between treatments. There are several advantages to continuing regular, consistent Botox injections, such as needing injections less often or requiring smaller quantities of Botox at each treatment. Additionally, consistent injections can slow the progression of dynamic lines and wrinkles because the muscles stay in a relaxed position over an extended amount of time. This has the effect of prolonging how long your Botox results will last.
