Botox® Sacramento Injections Can Improve Your Frown Lines and Crow’s Feet.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines in adults. It targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Your specialist will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows.
Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes that can occur over time, reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals in the sun and the environment. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. And when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow’s feet. BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet. For the frown lines area, your specialist will administer 5 injections into muscles in your forehead—1 in the procerus muscle and 4 in the corrugator muscles. Injecting BOTOX® into the muscles that cause frown lines temporarily reduces the activity of those muscles. The result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines.
Real, noticeable results.
Choose a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for your Botox® Injections
You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting up to 4 months. Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch. Dr. Jeffrey Sweat may use ice to numb the treatment area. If you are concerned about discomfort, Dr. Sweat may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.
You’ll look like yourself—only with less noticeable frown lines and crow’s feet. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. You should not lose the ability to show expression. You can almost immediately return to your daily routine. Treatment requires minimal downtime or recovery; it’s often called a lunchtime procedure. You’ll be able to go about your normal routine immediately after you leave the offices of Dr. Jeffrey Sweat in Sacramento.
Cost Considerations of Botox®
Your cost not only includes the price of the product, but more importantly, the skill and expertise of your plastic surgeon. BOTOX® is a technique-sensitive treatment. That is why we encourage all patients to look for someone who is licensed and trained and has experience treating patients with BOTOX® Cosmetic. Dr. Jeffrey Sweat fits all of the above criteria.
Be wary of discount products or “cheap” BOTOX® — if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
It is more important to find an experienced plastic surgeon who will take the time to understand your treatment goals and develop a treatment plan that is right for you.
