Treatment with BOTOX

Certain facial muscles contract to create expressions such as smiles and frowns. Over time, the repeated contraction of these muscles causes wrinkles (referred to as "dynamic wrinkles") to form. BOTOX Cosmetic is a purified form of botulinum protein, which reduces the activity of facial muscles, eliminating dynamic wrinkles such as frown lines and crow's feet.

Patients love that they can stop by our Corona Del Mar office, located conveniently near Irvine and Newport Beach, for a BOTOX Cosmetic appointment. In fact, on most days, a same-day appointment can be accommodated for this procedure that typically takes only 10 to 15 minutes. You simply take a seat in a cushy treatment chair, lie back as we briefly numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream, and then relax as Dr. Bonakdar performs a few tiny injections.

After Treatment

There is no recovery time needed after your BOTOX treatment. While some patients report minor swelling, redness, or bruising, these temporary side effects can be avoided using a bruising kit cream and pill available at our office or (worst case scenario) can be covered with makeup and won't keep you from your usual routine. You can expect to see maximum results in 7 to 10 days and your great new look should last between 3 and 6 months.

To keep your results looking fresh, maintenance treatments should be performed about every 6 months. If you discontinue treatment, the frown lines between your brows will gradually return to their pre-treatment appearance.

Explore Your Options

Many of our patients choose to combine their BOTOX treatments with chemical peels, facials, or other rejuvenation procedures like IPL. By combining treatments, they can achieve more comprehensive improvement. During your consultation with Dr. Bonakdar, you will receive a thorough analysis of your needs and a suggestion for treatments that can accomplish your goals; she will also discuss your options for combined procedures, such as BOTOX and dermal fillers like JUVÉDERM®.
