Aging skin and wrinkles result from a combination of many factors including cellular changes, collagen depletion, hormone loss, or damage caused by free radicals. When you concentrate, squint, or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. Because frown lines are created by facial movements, they may develop even in younger adults. After years of frequent contraction, those wrinkles can linger even after the muscles are at rest. At Orange Coast Eye Center we are not only ocular experts but professional Fountain Valley Botox specialists. Botox cosmetic injections are the most popular non-surgical plastic surgery procedure performed in Fountain Valley. These tiny injections can help erase years of wrinkles formed by our facial expressions of smiling and frowning.
Fountain Valley Botox Injections
The advent of Botox injections has revolutionized the approach to wrinkle treatment. Fountain Valley Botox injections are quick, relatively straightforward outpatient procedures, with minimal risk. In fact, many patients have now decided to replace more traditional surgical approaches to facial aging with our Fountain Valley Botox treatment. Our Fountain Valley patients can achieve a more youthful appearance in a single session with one of our skilled physicians. By injecting tiny amounts of Botox into specific facial muscles, the wrinkles and lines made by these muscle contractions can be relaxed or blocked. The full effect of the treatment takes approximately 3-7 days to occur. Most patients describe the sensation of the injections as “little mosquito bites” because the needle used is very tiny.
