BOTOX® Cosmetic

Livermore, CA

When life’s challenges cause us stress, our face naturally reflects our concerns. Stop worrying with neurotoxin treatments, including Dysport®, Jeuveau®, XEOMIN®, and BOTOX. At our office in Livermore, CA, a 10-to-20-minute series of injections is all it takes to relax those wrinkles and smooth your skin. These injections allow you to minimize worry lines, frown lines, and those furrows on your forehead, all without surgery.   

BOTOX treatments are popular with Pleasanton, San Ramon, and Dublin residents of various ages. With the help of our experienced injectors, you will still be able to create natural facial expressions, but with the added bonus of appearing like a younger, more refreshed version of yourself.

What Does BOTOX Treat? 

BOTOX and other neurotoxins are highly effective for treating dynamic wrinkles, including: 

  • Frown lines between the brows 
  • Forehead creases 
  • Laugh lines by the eyes (“crow’s feet”) 
  • Creases under the eyes 
  • “Bunny lines” created by wrinkling your nose 
  • Lines around the neck 

These safe, nonsurgical injections also help with hyperhidrosis (or as most of us call it, excessive sweating) in the underarms.  

How Much Does BOTOX Cost in Livermore?

The price for a BOTOX treatment at our med spa depends on the patient’s needs and areas being treated. You will be provided with a specific price for your treatment when you come in for an initial consultation.  

How Does BOTOX Work? 

BOTOX relaxes the muscles responsible for dynamic wrinkles, such as the ones listed above. When injected by a skilled professional, it prevents the muscles from contracting and wrinkling the skin. 

For lines that form due to volume loss under the skin (think nasolabial folds and lip lines),  dermal fillers may be a more helpful solution.  Laser skin resurfacing,  microneedling, and other treatments can also help minimize fine lines.  

What’s the Difference Between BOTOX and Other Neuromodulators? 

Dysport, Jeuveau, and XEOMIN work in essentially the same way BOTOX does, relaxing muscles to smooth dynamic wrinkles. The products all feature botulinum toxin A, but their formulations vary a bit. These differences cause slight variations in the way they spread, the time they take to start working, how long their results last, and how much they cost. When you consult with one of our experienced doctors, he or she will recommend the best product for you. 

What’s the Difference Between BOTOX and Dermal Filler injections? 

While BOTOX and dermal filler injections are both used for facial rejuvenation, there are distinct differences between these treatments.

Can BOTOX Injections Be Combined With Other Treatments?

Combination treatments are popular here at Silhouette. Because BOTOX and dermal fillers address different concerns, we often perform these treatments together. Lip injections, laser hair removal, and nonsurgical body contouring with treatments like UltraShape® Power are other popular options.

How Are BOTOX Treatments Performed? 

BOTOX treatments are very quick and require little to no recovery time, meaning you can easily have them done over your lunch break. During an appointment, your provider will ask you to create different facial expressions and assess where your lines are forming. He or she will then administer a short series of injections into the muscles. After that, you’ll be free to return to your usual routine. 

What should I avoid after BOTOX injections?

While no downtime is needed after BOTOX injections, we recommend the following precautions for optimal results:
  • Don’t lie down for at least 4 hours after treatment.
  • Postpone strenuous exercise for 24 hours.
  • Avoid consuming alcohol for 24 hours.
  • Prevent exposing the treated area to excess heat (such as hot tubs, saunas, sunbathing) for the first few hours.
  • Refrain from rubbing the injected area immediately following treatment.

When Will I See My BOTOX Results? 

BOTOX takes about 7 to 10 days to take effect, though this may vary slightly for the other formulations. Dysport is known to take effect within just a day or 2, which may make it a better option for last-minute treatments. 

How Long Do BOTOX Results Last? 

BOTOX results last around 3 to 4 months, at which time you can extend your results with a touch-up treatment. When used for hyperhidrosis, the results can last up to a year. This timeline may vary slightly depending on the product and how quickly your body processes it.  

BOTOX FAQ

Is BOTOX Cosmetic safe?

Yes, in the right candidate, BOTOX and other neuromodulators are very safe—as long as an appropriately trained and experienced provider performs the injections.

At what age should I start to get BOTOX treatments?

Age is not important when it comes to getting your first BOTOX treatment. Many people in their 30s to 50s come in for their first BOTOX treatment when they begin to notice lines and creases on their face. It is becoming more common for women and men in their 20s to have BOTOX treatments performed proactively to prevent dynamic wrinkles from forming.

Are there alternative uses for BOTOX Cosmetic?

In addition to treating wrinkles, BOTOX can address a variety of other concerns, including:

  • Square jawline (jawline reduction)
  • Thin lips (BOTOX lip flip)
  • Excessive sweating
  • Gummy smile
  • Neck banding
  • Migraine headaches
