Can you believe 2018 is on the horizon already? With each new year, we make promises and plans for ourselves. If you haven’t yet, let BOTOX be a part of your beauty resolutions this year. Patients visit us for BOTOX from Walnut Creek, San Ramon, and other nearby communities because they trust our skill as much as they trust the product. BOTOX has earned its popularity for a reason. It’s been used for many medical indications since the 1980s, and it’s been FDA approved for cosmetic applications since 2002. That means it’s helped nearly a generation of women and men safely smooth away some of their most persistent wrinkles, including crow’s feet.
At Essential Aesthetics, BOTOX is more than just a wrinkle smoother. My patients count on its versatility to help reduce the look of a “gummy smile,” minimize downturned corners of the mouth, slim and reduce the size of muscles in the jaw, erase visible neck bands, and more.
BOTOX and a similar product, Dysport®, are administered through injections. I use a very fine needle as well as gentle techniques to keep the procedure comfortable regardless of the condition you want to treat. The results of BOTOX take several days to develop, and they can last up to 6 months, depending on where the product was administered (areas of more muscle activity tend to have shorter-lived results).
This year, I invite you to take a second look at a product that’s safely helped millions of people achieve their cosmetic goals. I look forward to treating you in 2018 — have a healthy and beautiful holiday season.
