Botox Injections in San Francisco, CA
What is Cosmetic BOTOX?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles in adults. BOTOX is the first and only treatment that is FDA approved to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines look better in adults.
Dr. Leslie Kardos provides cosmetic BOTOX for patients looking to improve the look of forehead lines, crow’s feet lines, and frown lines between the eyebrows. Learn more about cosmetic BOTOX procedures and call (415) 426-7859 or schedule your appointment online today!
How does BOTOX Work?
BOTOX works to help combat facial lines. As you age, your cells can change, your collagen may reduce, or you may have damage from the sun or environment.
BOTOX helps to work beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity. This can help curb the repeated muscle contractions that occur from frowning, squinting, or raising your eyebrows. As these muscles learn to relax, the lines can become less noticeable over time.
BOTOX does not last forever, and follow-up visits may be required to help the muscles continue to relax and keep lines discreet.
How is BOTOX Performed?
- You schedule an appointment with Dr. Kardos
- You may receive some topical numbing applied to the face
- Dr. Kardos will use a small needle to inject the BOTOX into the treatment areas
- Treatment requires minimal downtime. You can return to your daily routine immediately after you leave
- You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines
- It delivers predictable, subtle results, so you look like you, only with less noticeable facial lines
Is BOTOX Safe?
According to FDA standards, BOTOX is considered safe. You should always go to a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon for injections. You’re more likely to experience adverse side effects if your injections aren’t prepared properly or injected by an inexperienced healthcare professional.
