Botox Injections In San Diego

Reduce or Eliminate Wrinkles with Botox

What Is Botox? 

Botox is a prescription injection used to temporarily improve the look of wrinkles in adults. Botox can also be used to help prevent severe underarm sweating. This treatment is generally performed only when topical medicines have not worked well. If you’re unhappy with the crow’s feet next to your eyes or wish you didn’t have the frown lines between your eyebrows, there is no need to feel stuck with these features any longer. Botox may be the answer you’re looking for to feel better about yourself and the way that you look.

Discover the Benefits:

How does Botox work? Botox is injected into the muscle that creates the wrinkle and blocks the nerve impulse in that area. This relaxes the muscle and the result is that the wrinkle is smoothed away, giving you more youthful skin.

Reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles

Eye twitching. Botox injections may help relieve contracture or twitching of muscles around the eye.

Chronic migraine. If you experience migraines more than 15 days a month, Botox injections may help reduce headache frequency.

Bladder dysfunction. Botox injections can also help reduce urinary incontinence caused by an overactive bladder.

Muscle contractures. Some neurological conditions, such as cerebral palsy, can cause your limbs to pull in toward your center. In some cases, these contracted muscles can be relaxed with Botox injections.


Most people do not find the injection to be painful. In fact, most people compare the feeling to being pinched. In addition, it is not uncommon for a provider to numb the area being treated with ice before the injection or to apply a topical numbing cream to this area.
The whole treatment is very short and only takes approximately 10 minutes.
Results are seen very quickly. It is common for results to be noticeable within 24 to 48 hours after treatment.
There is no downtime associated with Botox treatment. You can even get a treatment during your lunch hour and return to work.
Side effects from a Botox injection can include pain or discomfort where the injection is given, dry mouth, head pain, neck pain and a feeling of tiredness. There is also a potential for temporary eye issues such as decreased eyesight, dry eyes, blurred vision, swelling of your eyelids, double vision and dropping eyelids.

How Can I Make My Botox Results Last Longer?

Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures, and for good reason. It is an easy way to get rid of unwanted wrinkles on the face, shaving years from your appearance during a quick and painless procedure. If you want to get rid of frown lines, forehead wrinkles or crow’s feet, you should go with botox.

However, one downside of Botox is that it is by no means a permanent procedure. Many patients have asked us the best way to make Botox results last longer, so with that in mind, we have compiled a list of our best insider tips.

A week prior to filler injections stop all:

  • multivitamins
  • aspirin
  • Co Q10
  • fish oil
  • ibuprofen
  • green tea
  • Advil
  • any herbs
  • vitamin c and blood thinners.
  • You also want to start taking Arnicare tablets or pellets to help minimize the bruising that may occur after treatment.

Keep Your Face Free of Other Substances One Week After Injections

Most of us have some kind of face routine to keep it clean, fresh and beautiful, however for at least a week after the Botox injection procedure keep your face clear of any and all products. Skincare products applied can hurt the effects of Botox on the face. This includes but is not limited to masks, cleansers, toners, and scrubs.

Stay out of the Sun on the Day of Your Botox Procedure

The sun has a number of good and bad effects of the body, and one of those effects is increasing the circulation of blood throughout the body. This increased circulation can cause dilation of the blood vessels, which can lead to Botox traveling through your body quicker than intended. Therefore, in order to maximize the effectiveness of Botox, try to avoid being in the sun on the day of your Botox treatment and make sure to wear a sunscreen that is at least SPF 30.

Get Botox Regularly to Make the Results Last Longer

Getting Botox on a regular schedule will weaken the muscles over time, meaning that the wonderful results will last longer. This is a cumulative effect, so over time if you are administered Botox on a regular basis the results will last longer and longer, However, you do not want to inject Botox too frequently. Space your procedures at least 12 weeks apart to avoid any potential problems. If you get Botox more frequently, you risk becoming resistant and building a tolerance to the procedure.

Make Funny Faces to Keep Wrinkles Away Longer

Some research studies have found that activating the muscles that were just injected may cause the results to last longer. With that in mind, make funny faces, twitch your face and do anything else to get those face muscles working overtime! However, make sure to run this by your doctor before doing so.
