Botox

Cosmetic filler is a popular choice for wrinkle treatment.  Muscles under the skin that cause facial wrinkles, especially frown lines between the eyebrows and on the forehead.  Botox injections are used to temporarily relax these muscles.  Botox wrinkle treatment can help you look younger and more relaxed without surgery.

The wrinkle-reducing effects of Botox injections are not permanent. Although results vary, they usually last for four to six months, and can be repeated as necessary. Botox is injected into the muscles under the skin with thin needles, causing the wrinkle-producing muscles to become temporarily relaxed. The injection process only takes about ten minutes, and most patients do not need anesthesia, although a topical anesthetic can be applied, if desired.

Your UC Davis plastic surgeon will discuss your concerns with you and explain the details about wrinkle treatment with Botox® Cosmetic. There are a number of facial injectable products available at UC Davis and your cosmetic surgeon will help you determine the non-surgical wrinkle treatment that is best for you.
