Botox in San Francisco is the most popular form of cosmetic treatment and is used by an ever-increasing number of participants who want to see their wrinkles disappear. It is the purified protein produced by Clostridium Botulinum which causes contracted muscles to relax.
As we age, our skin becomes thinner, we produce less collagen, and our cell regeneration becomes slower. External factors can also contribute to wrinkles, and these include alcohol, an unhealthy diet, smoking, lack of exercise, and ultra violet rays from the sun. All of these things can be a cause of wrinkles on the face and upper neck. We can help you with Botox via our sister facility, Visage of San Francisco.
A Leading Maxillofacial Surgeon
Dr Alex Rabinovich is a leading maxillofacial surgeon in the Bay Area and offers Botox injections to men and women who want to retain, or regain, their youthful looks. Botox is injected directly into the wrinkles and relaxes the muscles. This results in the disappearance or softening of existing wrinkles and delays the onset of new ones. Over time, as you have further treatments your muscles “learn” a new behavior which results in less formation of further wrinkles. Initially you should have treatments every 3 – 4 months, but as your muscles “learn” the new behavior this can be extended to between 6 and 12 months.77
Results May Take Up To Ten Days
The results of Botox in San Francisco are not instant and may take up to ten days or so to gain full effect. However, the treatment is very quick, usually taking only ten minutes or so. There is no down time, so you can go straight back to work, but you should not exercise or have a hot bath immediately after treatment because it is possible to sweat out the protein. You should also avoid rubbing the area for 24 hours.
Over the course of the last 20 years or so, Botox has been used by over a million patients worldwide with no ill effects. Indeed, it is one of the safest cosmetic procedures available.
