Your BOTOX Injection Experience at V Line Cosmetic in Pasadena
The BOTOX experience is quick, easy, and very tolerable, making this procedure a great way to enjoy impressive results without taking a big chunk of time out of your personal schedule. When you visit our luxurious Pasadena or Arcadia clinic space for the treatment, we’ll start by offering you a topical numbing agent that can help you tolerate the injections more effectively.
The product will be injected according to your personalized treatment plan. We’ll use a very fine gauge needle to keep the process tolerable. Depending on the specifics of your treatment area, the session will likely be over in 30 to 45 minutes at most. You’ll experience a bit of tenderness and redness in the treatment area, but these after-effects will quickly fade.
The effects of treatment vary according to the treatment area, with smaller facial muscles showing results after a few days. Larger muscles will show their results after two to three weeks. Various factors will impact the longevity of your results. Most patients visit us for re-treatment after four to six months, and we’ll work with you to set up your appointments.
Do I Need BOTOX or Dermal Fillers? What is the Difference?
Botox (Botulinum Toxin):
- Process: Botox is a neurotoxin that temporarily paralyzes or weakens specific facial muscles by blocking nerve signals. It prevents these muscles from contracting and forming wrinkles or fine lines on the skin's surface.
- Purpose: Botox is primarily used to treat dynamic wrinkles, which are caused by repeated muscle movements, such as frown lines, crow's feet, and forehead lines. It provides a smoother and more youthful appearance by relaxing the targeted muscles.
- Duration: The effects of Botox typically last for several months, and repeat treatments are needed to maintain results.
- Process: Dermal fillers are injectable substances, such as hyaluronic acid, collagen, or synthetic materials, that add volume to specific areas of the face. They fill in wrinkles, lines, and hollow areas by plumping up the skin from beneath.
- Purpose: Dermal fillers are used to address static wrinkles, which are present even when facial muscles are at rest. They can also enhance facial contours, restore lost volume, and provide a more youthful appearance. Common areas for filler treatment include nasolabial folds, lips, cheeks, and under-eye hollows.
- Duration: The longevity of dermal fillers varies depending on the type of filler used, but results generally last from several months to over a year. Maintenance treatments may be required to sustain the effects.
While both Botox and dermal fillers are injectable treatments for facial rejuvenation, they serve different purposes. The choice between these treatments depends on your individual concerns. We always recommend getting a consultation to help determine which option is most suitable for your goals. Sometimes, a combination of both treatments may be recommended to achieve comprehensive facial rejuvenation.
How Do BOTOX Injections Work?
Understanding Dynamic Wrinkles
Understanding how BOTOX works means understanding the difference between static and dynamic wrinkles. While a number of factors cause the formation of static wrinkles, dynamic wrinkles are caused by the usage of your facial muscles. As you eat, speak, and form facial expressions each day, the usage of these facial muscles eventually causes the formation of lines and wrinkles in the skin that sits just above them. This is where BOTOX comes in.
BOTOX works through a process called “neuromodulation.” This works by interacting directly with the facial muscles whose use has been causing your dynamic wrinkles to form. When injected, the product essentially hits the “pause” button on these muscles by interrupting the nerve signals that tell them to move. By temporarily paralyzing these muscles, we can smooth over lines and wrinkles and prevent more of them from forming in the future.
