Botox Cosmetic

Give us twenty minutes, we’ll give you ten years. Even people who are conscientious about skincare can’t avoid wrinkles. Nourishing your skin with moisturizers and diligently applying sunscreen helps. But for smoother skin as we age, many of us turn to injectables like BOTOX® Cosmetic. Dana Point and Orange County residents, along with others living in and around the Southern California area, visit Dr. de la Torre to reduce frown lines and crow’s feet without undergoing surgery.

Why use BOTOX Cosmetic?

With targeted injections of small doses, BOTOX relaxes specific muscles that are responsible for forehead creases and wrinkles around the eyes. Injections help treat:

  • Vertical lines between the eyes and slightly above the bridge of the nose
  • Lines at the corners of the eyes caused by squinting, known as crow’s feet
  • Horizontal forehead creases
  • Vertical lines along the neck

We also use BOTOX and to enhance the improvements from dermal fillers.

When Will I See Results?

You will probably begin noticing a difference after 3 days. However, it may be 7-10 days before the full effect is seen. There is virtually no bruising caused by the injections when performed by a physician who’s experienced in performing cosmetic procedures like Dr. de la Torre. Results typically last 3 or 4 months, but with regularly scheduled injections, benefits may become prolonged.

Both Botox and Jeuveau work by relaxing muscles beneath the skin, creating a smoother appearance in the skin.

Botox is usually used to treat frown lines or glabellar lines (the wrinkles between your eyebrows), along with horizontal forehead lines and crow’s feet (wrinkles at the corners of your eyes).

Jeuveau, on the other hand, is only FDA approved for the treatment of glabellar lines. However, your doctor may decide to use Jeuveau to treat other locations on the face and body,as this “off label” use is safe and permitted by the FDA .  

If you’re hoping to treat your glabellar lines, discuss its use with the doctor who will help you to decide which treatment will work best for you. 

Do you look like your tired or made even when you’re not?  Jeauvau may be the answer to your problem. Jeuveau is a relatively new type of “botulinum toxin type A” injection used in the treatment of wrinkles (AKA the New Botox or “Newtox” for short).  It’s made of the same active ingredient used in original Botox Cosmetic injections.

While Jeuveau is similar to Botox, there are a few things that make this injection stand apart from other botulinum toxin injections.

Jeuveau is a better for certain types of facial wrinkles compared to Botox— sometimes at a slightly cheaper price.

There are many considerations to make when choosing the right wrinkle treatment, including injectables.
