What Is BOTOX?

Our BOTOX in Santa Clarita is one of the most popular injectables on the market today. It is also known as botulinum toxin type A, which is made from a refined bacterium. BOTOX is used to smooth out the wrinkles and fine lines in the face that naturally come about as a normal result of aging.

It works by temporarily paralyzing muscles in the face, which allows the skin to become smoother, giving a more youthful appearance as a result. It is sometimes used to treat medical conditions such as headaches, excessive sweating, or crossed eyes (strabismus).

How is BOTOX administered?

BOTOX is an injection used to reduce undesirable fine lines and wrinkles. To administer BOTOX, a very small needle is used to inject the BOTOX directly into the facial muscles.

Our BOTOX in Santa Clarita takes only a few minutes to administer and is performed on an outpatient basis.

Recovery After BOTOX

BOTOX is a non-invasive and non-surgical aesthetic service, so recovery time is virtually nonexistent. You should be able to resume your normal routine from the moment you leave the office.

Occasionally some patients experience initial skin irritation from the needle entering the skin, however, it is very minimal and goes away quickly.

Patients should refrain from exercise, exposure to heat, or anything else that might cause sweating for approximately 12 hours following the injection.

I can't say enough good things about this office! Everyone is so super awesome and every time I go, I'm treated with professionalism and kindness. I've been getting injected by Trista for over 3 years and she is truly the best! I've referred several people to her and everyone I've ever sent says the same thing... She's their girl now! She's honest, she's fair and the sweetest person I know. She is knowledgeable and gifted but at the same time, easy to laugh with. I've seen Dr. Hu as well for procedures and I would never go anywhere else. He's super cool, not pretensions, easy to talk to and he knows his stuff!

Frequently Asked Questions

How Many BOTOX Injections Will I Need?

The number of BOTOX injections you will need will be based upon the area or areas being treated. The forehead, for example, may require three injection sites. If you having several facial areas treated in a single session, the number of units (and injection sites) is related to the location and depth of creases, lines, and wrinkles. Less is best with BOTOX, as you do not want to have a “frozen” facial appearance. When administered at Valencia Plastic Surgery, under the care of Dr. Hu, you can be assured that we are known for achieving very natural, smooth results.

How Often Will I Need to Get Injections?

BOTOX injections start to wear off between three to six months after treatment. To maintain your rejuvenated appearance, injections may be required every three to six months. As the muscles become accustomed to a more relaxed state, you may require BOTOX injections less often, and fewer units.

When Will I See Results?

You will start seeing results within the first five to seven days and achieve full results at about two weeks.

How Long Will BOTOX Results Last?

Depending on your skin type and activity level, your smoother and more youthful facial look could last up to six months. For some patients, the full effects of BOTOX can begin to diminish after two months, but the smoothing effect wears off slowly over time.

How Do I Avoid Looking Fake When Getting BOTOX Injections?

Having your BOTOX injections administered by a certified and experienced practitioner is a must. It is advised that BOTOX treatments are performed under the care of our plastic surgeon who understands facial muscular structure. The art and science behind the administration of BOTOX and the skill with which the product is injected can make a significant difference in achieving natural-looking results.

How Does BOTOX work?

BOTOX is an injectable substance that prevents the muscles below your facial skin from contracting. The substance inhibits the nerve signals that trigger facial muscle contractions. It is the constant muscle contractions that cause the lines and wrinkles to form. In limiting muscle motion, your skin appears smoother and more youthful. It is imperative that BOTOX is administered correctly as over-use or injections into the wrong muscle strands can lead to an unhappy result. Remember – if a deal sounds too good to be true with BOTOX, it probably is. Some medspas have been found to have counterfeit BOTOX. You can trust our results at Valencia Plastic Surgery.

When Should I Start Getting BOTOX?

Many people start getting BOTOX as soon as they see the first signs of lines and wrinkles around the eyes, nose, mouth and on the forehead. The early use of BOTOX can be a preventative measure to slow the development of facial wrinkles. If you have already developed facial lines and creases, BOTOX is the most popular of all cosmetic injectables and relied upon by men and women between the ages of 30 and 70.
