BOTOX® Cosmetic, Xeomin and Dysport are injectable substances made from naturally occurring neormuscular relaxants. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a highly diluted form of a toxin that has been proven to be safe and that was approved for use in cosmetic treatments by the FDA in 2002. BOTOX® injections are used to relax facial muscles to prevent the formation of fine line wrinkles. Because facial muscles cannot contract after treatment with BOTOX®, the injections temporarily smooth out and ease the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face. BOTOX® injections are often used in conjunction with, or in replacement of, many facial cosmetic surgery treatments such as facelift, brow lift, and eyelid surgery. All the wrinkle relaxers are also used as part of a total plan developed by Beautologie to help prevent the signs of aging.

Wrinkle Relaxer Procedure
During the BOTOX® Cosmetic or other wrinkle relaxer procedure, a Beautologie professional will determine where to administer the injections by asking the patient to contract his or her facial muscles. He/She then uses an extremely thin, tiny needle to inject BOTOX® Cosmetic into the muscles that are causing the wrinkles and lines on the face. Anesthesia is not required since the procedure is quick and relatively pain free.
Beautologie makes comfort and healing a priority with injectable treatments. Our Aesthetic Medicine Professionals offer a topical cream that numbs while promoting healing and reducing bruising. The entire BOTOX® Cosmetic procedure takes just a few minutes, and patients can resume their normal activities immediately after treatment. Because of this, the treatment is usually considered a "lunchtime" procedure.
Benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetic, Xeomin and Dysport
BOTOX® Cosmetic has become one of the most popular non-surgical aesthetic treatments on the market because of its many benefits. Many people choose to undergo BOTOX® injections because of their quick ability to subtract years off the appearance of an aging face. Individuals with dynamic wrinkles caused by facial expressions can eliminate creases around their eyes and mouth for up to four months with BOTOX® injections. In addition, BOTOX® Cosmetic can reduce the appearance of permanent wrinkles on the forehead and in between the eyebrows. BOTOX® injections can also be used by individuals who desire more contour in their face. Patients with square shaped faces who desire a more oval-shaped facial appearance can receive BOTOX® injections to reduce the size of their chewing muscles. This results in a more curved cheek. Botox® and the other wrinkle relaxers can also be used to soften neck lines. We also use BOTOX® to reduce sweating in the hands and the armpits.
We also offer alternatives to BOTOX® injections known as fillers: Restylane®, ArteFill®, and JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel treatments are some examples. If you're looking to receive BOTOX® in Bakersfield, please contact Beautologie Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center for more information on these dermal fillers.
How does it work?
Wrinkle relaxers are as group of products that help to soften "active wrinkles,” which are the wrinkles that occur in your forehead or around your eyes when you clench those facial muscles. They work chemically by blocking specific nerve impulses to the muscles that cause these wrinkles. By blocking the nerve impulses, the muscles are unable to make a strong contraction, thus preventing the lines from deepening and becoming permanent wrinkles. It is important to note that we are not eliminating normal facial expression, just the deep lines that go along with the expressions that develop over time. The long-term benefit of this is that the lines will not imprint permanently into the skin.
How long does it last?
BOTOX® Cosmetic typically lasts 3-4 months after the initial treatment, if properly performed using non-diluted new product, and using the correct dosage in the administered areas. The good news is after repeated treatments at our Bakersfield practice, the muscles tend to stay relaxed for a longer period of time, resulting in a longer duration of effect. It is important to see a properly trained professional to make sure you are not getting a "cut-rate" treatment, where the product is diluted or "spread out" over a large area. At Beautologie in Bakersfield, our professional injectors create the longest possible duration by utilizing a methodology that involves creating the optimal treatment in the area you are looking to improve.
The cost of Botox® and other wrinkle relaxers usually varies from person to person, and the number of areas to be treated and how strong the muscles are that need to be relaxed. Many practices price Botox® by the unit. We have found that this often results in compromising the treatment, and unhappy patients if the Botox® wears out to soon or doesn’t have the desired effect. At Beautologie here in Bakersfield, our per area pricing, Botox® club, and package pricing allows us to do the maximal treatment while saving you money.Contact us today to learn more about and take advantage of the very best Botox Bakersfield has available.
