BOTOX® Cosmetics in Rocklin,
Roseville and Greater Sacramento Area
Most common areas for Botox injections are crows feet, frown lines, and forehead. During the consultation, Dr. Ray discusses options and long term plans for your medical aesthetics treatments. It is recommended to have Botox injections every 3-4 months. Longer interval, in fact, may adversely affect the progress and worsen the lines.
This non-surgical, minimally invasive skin Botox treatment can be administered to relax targeted muscles underneath the skin that are responsible for wrinkling, effectively releasing tension and smoothing the surface of the skin. At Elite Medical Aesthetics of Rocklin, as a Medical Spa and Botox clinic, Dr. Ray injects skin Botox to remove wrinkles and lines.
How long is the BOTOX® Recovery?
Following the BOTOX Cosmetic procedure, mild redness and swelling will go away within 20-20 minutes. Very occasionally some minor bruising may occur which would go away within days. The majority of individuals are able to resume work and/or normal daily routines immediately, though certain strenuous activities may need to be avoided for 4-6 hours.
How long does Botox® last?
The effects of BOTOX Cosmetic generally start between the 3rdday and maximal results within 14th-day post-treatment. The results last approximately three to four months and occasional touch-up treatments can be received to help maintain an optimal outcome around 14th day. Some may see the results lasting longer than average of 3-4 months and in some, the results may wear off faster due to the metabolism rate of that individual for Botox.
How does BOTOX® Work?
Botox® Cosmetics is injected into the muscle tissue and stops the nerve signals that cause them to contract.
During the procedure, Dr. Ray uses a thin needle (insulin needle gauge #31) to deliver a small dose of Botox Cosmetic into the muscle. Depending on the area, may need 3-5 injections.
Does the Botox® injection hurt?
A very tiny needle is all that is needed for the procedure. Some patients report minor discomfort from the injection and that is for a moment. At Elite Medical Aesthetics of Rocklin, Dr. Ray evaluates the patient’s pain threshold and offers a couple of options to make the experience with no or very little discomfort.
