Turn Back the Clock on Your Facial Skin With BOTOX Cosmetic in Thousand Oaks

As we get older, it becomes nearly impossible to naturally keep our facial skin looking smooth, youthful, and radiant. As the effects of aging, gravity, and sun exposure take their toll, most people eventually start to develop unsightly facial lines and wrinkles. These creases often create a worn-down appearance and make us look quite a bit older than we really are. At Elevate Plastic Surgery, we offer BOTOX Cosmetic, a popular injectable treatment that can eliminate fine lines and wrinkles to leave your facial skin looking smooth and refreshed.

What Is BOTOX Cosmetic?

BOTOX Cosmetic is an injectable, minimally invasive cosmetic treatment used to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe dynamic wrinkles. It is made with a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin type A, which works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles, reducing the muscle activity that forms dynamic wrinkles. This causes existing lines and creases to be smoothed out and temporarily prevents new ones from developing.

Benefits of BOTOX Cosmetic

For individuals seeking minimally invasive skin rejuvenation, BOTOX Cosmetic is an effective treatment that can offer all of the following benefits:

  • Firmer, more youthful-looking facial skin
  • Reduced fine lines and wrinkles
  • Temporary prevention of new dynamic wrinkles
  • Enhanced facial contours
  • Little to no recovery time
  • Natural-looking results
  • Improved self-confidence
  • A more alert and refreshed facial appearance

What to Expect During Your BOTOX Cosmetic Treatment

At Elevate Plastic Surgery, your BOTOX Cosmetic treatment will be a quick, painless, and stress-free experience taking place right at our clinic. Before your procedure, a topical numbing cream will be applied to your skin in the targeted area to prevent any discomfort. Dr. Rahgozar will then use a fine needle to inject the BOTOX into the targeted facial muscles. You may feel a slight pinch during the injections, but they should not cause significant pain. Once the treatment is finished, you’ll be able to leave the clinic and return home immediately.

BOTOX Cosmetic Recovery and Aftercare

After your BOTOX injections, you may experience some mild swelling, redness, and/or bruising at the injection site. This is normal and should subside within a few hours to a few days. To help reduce swelling and discomfort, you can apply a cold pack to the area for 10-15 minutes at a time, several times a day.

You should avoid scratching or rubbing the injection site(s) for at least 24 hours after treatment to prevent the spread of the BOTOX to other areas of your face. Most patients have no problem returning to work and resuming their normal routines within a day, but it’s best to wait at least 24 to 48 hours to engage in strenuous physical activity.
