Movement of the delicate muscles in the face—caused by smiling, laughing, frowning, for example—create what are known as dynamic wrinkles. Everyone gets dynamic wrinkles in varying degrees; they are normal and natural. Over time deeper lines and wrinkles form. Botox® Cosmetic can help gracefully minimize the effects of aging. Botox® Cosmetic injections are safe and effective and have no recovery or downtime.
Botox® Cosmetic gently works with your facial muscles to decrease the number and severity of facial wrinkles. The result is a softened, natural, refined appearance and the removal or drastic reduction of wrinkles and lines. Newport Beach Botox specialist and female board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Lawton will selectively inject Botox® Cosmetic into the muscles that are causing your dynamic facial wrinkles. The procedure is performed in our Newport Beach plastic surgery office and takes less than a half hour.
The maximum effect of Botox® Cosmetic is attained within 4 to 7 days and results typically* last between three to four months at which time a maintenance treatment is performed. Botox® Cosmetic is the most popular non-surgical procedure today. *results may vary
