BOTOX® Cosmetic

Read Frequently Asked Questions

modelOver the years, wrinkling and crinkling can take its toll on your face, leaving permanent marks that make you look older than you are. Fortunately, modern technology has enabled doctors to be able to erase years from your face with little to no downtime. One of the most common treatments for deep brow and forehead lines is BOTOX®.

What Causes Forehead Wrinkles?

The vertical lines between your brows — the 11s — are caused by contractions of your glabella muscles. While cellular changes, depletion of collagen, hormone loss, and free radical damage cause your skin to age and wrinkle, the lingering contractions of your glabella muscles (caused by decades of squinting, concentrating, and frowning) are the major contributor to those stubborn lines on your forehead.

How Does BOTOX® Work?

BOTOX® Cosmetic works by targeting the glabella muscles with a medication that blocks the nerve impulses. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a natural purified protein injected into the facial muscles of forehead lines, frown lines and crows feet. The wrinkles are softened giving you a more youthful appearance. Dr. Lam or Dr. Mancha may apply a topical anesthetic cream, making this a painless procedure. BOTOX® Cosmetic improvements can be seen in as little as a few days and the effects may last up to four months.

To determine if you are a good candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dr. Lam or Dr. Mancha will provide you with a free consultation. During this consultation, your doctor will learn about your medical history and personal appearance goals; this enables him to recommend the best treatments and procedures to safely meet your goals.

The Truth About BOTOX® Treatments — Frequently Asked Questions

If you've been considering BOTOX® injections, you've probably heard many facts and myths about this popular wrinkle treatment. We've compiled a list of the most frequently-asked-questions about BOTOX® treatments, answering questions like whether it is safe and how it compares to other wrinkle treatments.

Q: "Is BOTOX® safe? My aunt says it's botulism." — S.J.
A: "BOTOX® is an amazingly safe wrinkle treatment. It's precise, predictable, and people love it — and you can tell your aunt it's definitely NOT botulism. In fact, BOTOX® isn't even a drug. It's a natural biologic, a highly purified protein that, when administered, stops the signal that normally tells muscles to contract — so they can stay relaxed. Your body quickly metabolizes the protein, but the results of that can last 3–4 months." Contact us for a consultation.

Q: "Is BOTOX® proven? I've already wasted hundreds of dollars on the false promises of wrinkle creams." — A.H.
A: "Unlike those wrinkle creams you tried, BOTOX® keeps its promises and really does work like a Magic Eraser on lines and wrinkles. BOTOX® injections have been used worldwide for more than 20 years. And in our many years of medical practice, we have yet to experience anything as effective and consistent in erasing frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and crow's feet." Contact us for a consultation.

Q: "Are BOTOX® injections affordable? I hate my crow's feet, but I read an online ad for skin cream that said I'd have to mortgage my house to afford it." — T.U.
A: "BOTOX® is a surprisingly affordable wrinkle treatment. You can easily erase those crow's feet you hate for up to 4 months for about 65 cents a day! Our typical clients treat three areas (i.e. crow's feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles) about ever 3–4 months for as little as $3.80 a day." Contact us for a consultation.
