Botox – Wrinkle Treatment

Conveniently located to serve the areas of Lafayette, CA and East Bay

We speak, smile, and frown on a regular basis. The repeated use of our facial muscles often results in the formation of fine lines and wrinkles on our foreheads, around our eyes, and along our lips. A safe, effective way to erase and prevent these wrinkles is with Botox or Dysport, two highly popular anti-aging injectable solutions.

Injectable wrinkle treatments like Botox or Dysport are FDA-approved to relax and smooth the muscles responsible for facial wrinkles. Dr. Elizabeth Lee targets unwanted facial wrinkles with Botox or Dysport to achieve a calmer, more youthful expression for her patients. These injections transform a tired, angry, worried or aged appearance into a more alert and healthy one almost instantly! Botox and Dysport are also available to treat excessive sweating, migraines, and muscle pains.

About Botox & Dysport

There are two types of wrinkles: static and dynamic. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by the repeated use of a particular muscle, like when we frown, or by a muscle that is tense and overfiring. Botox and Dysport are cosmetic injectables designed to relax and release these targeted muscles in order to smooth away unwanted wrinkles.

The main ingredient in Botox & Dysport is Botulinum Toxin A, a neuromodulator FDA-approved for cosmetic and medical injection. Wrinkle Relaxer injections effectively relax the muscles causing or holding a wrinkle in place by blocking the nerve signals telling the muscle to fire. This causes the muscle to release, which results in the treated area returning to a smooth, youthful appearance.

Botox and Dysport not only erase the appearance of existing wrinkles:
they also prevent the formation of new ones!

Because Botox and Dysport relax the muscles responsible for frown lines, crow’s feet, and other dynamic wrinkles, new wrinkles will not form with regularly scheduled applications. Wrinkle Relaxers are a safe, popular way to halt the signs of facial aging.

Botox and Dysport are a highly effective solution for dynamic wrinkles as well as static wrinkles. Patients who may also be experiencing static wrinkles can seek Botox treatments to turn back the clock on facial aging. Static wrinkles are a result of lost volume and skin elasticity, which can be caused by a wide variety of factors such as smoking, sun exposure, stress, and time. In some cases, static wrinkles are best treated by another type of injectable known as a dermal filler. Dermal fillers are designed to restore lost volume to the skin, augment a patient’s facial features, and create a more healthy, youthful contour.

Dr. Elizabeth Lee artfully combines dermal fillers with wrinkle relaxers to achieve full facial rejuvenation. Dr. Lee tailors every skin rejuvenation treatment to complement her patients’ natural features and maintain their youthful appearance for years to come!
