Botox has become an incredibly popular solution for smoothing dynamic wrinkles such as crow’s feet, frown lines, worry lines, and lines on the neck. In Santa Rosa, BOTOX® Cosmetic injections provide the best results when performed by a skilled and experienced injector. That’s why so many Sonoma, Napa, and Marin men and women choose board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Victor Lacombe to perform their BOTOX® procedure.
Candidates for BOTOX®
You may be a candidate if you would like to:
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Soften and restore youthfulness to your face
- Rejuvenate and refresh your appearance
- Crow’s feet (lines around outer corners of the eyes)
- Glabella (“11 lines” between the eyebrows)
Depending on the number of areas being treated, the BOTOX® procedure usually takes less than 15 minutes. Dr. Lacombe uses a tiny needle and a unique technique to ensure the procedure is as pain free as possible. After all of the injections have been made, Dr. Lacombe may have you apply an ice pack to the treated area before you leave.
The Recovery and Results*
Recovery after the BOTOX® procedure is very quick. Patients may experience mild side effects, including temporary bruising and headaches that last less than 24 hours. These side effects are typically very manageable and can be expected to clear up in about 3-7 days. If necessary, you can use an ice pack to alleviate any discomfort you may experience. Patients should avoid rubbing the areas near the injection site for 12 hours after the injections. Patients should also refrain from laying down until 4 hours after the injection so that the BOTOX® does not move to unwanted areas. Dr. Lacombe also offers a laser treatment that may significantly reduce bruising of the treated areas.
BOTOX® does not work immediately. Typically results are seen 5-7 days after your treatment. When the BOTOX® begins working you will notice that your wrinkles are significantly improved and your skin looks smoother. The results of BOTOX® typically last 3-4 months. Remember, every patient is unique and has different results and recovery times.
