BOTOX Cosmetic is one of the most common cosmetic treatments in the U.S. for those looking to treat specific facial signs of aging. Over time, lines, wrinkles, and folds develop on our face from years of smiling, laughing, and frowning. Eventually, the lines and wrinkles become more permanent and can make you look older. While our San Diego BOTOX treatments deliver temporary results, the outcome is excellent, and with routine maintenance and care, it has been proven to deliver great aesthetic results. This treatment has been shown to safely smooth facial wrinkles for a more youthful complexion.

BOTOX Cosmetic Treatment Overview
Botox, also known as botulinum toxin type A, is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that involves injecting a purified form of the toxin into specific muscles to temporarily paralyze them. It is primarily used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, particularly in the forehead, between the eyebrows (glabellar lines), and around the eyes (crow’s feet).
