Botox and Xeomin may just be some of the most popular non-surgical injections worldwide and are most certainly a top choice for both men and women alike in Orange County. Botox and other types of neurotoxins have literally changed the landscape of facial rejuvenation. In a simple and near painless non-surgical procedure, Dr. John Park injects either of these products into the muscles, causing them to relax, creating a smooth appearance with softer lines or wrinkles.
– A.R., Actual Patient*
In addition to softening the appearance of existing wrinkles, because Botox and Xeomin can block excessive forehead movement, it can also help prevent against the formation of new wrinkles. Thus, many women in their late 20s and 30s get Botox treatments as part of their prevention plan against facial aging.
It is important to understand that although this treatment is not permanent, if done improperly, or by an untrained or experienced person, it can cause undesirable results such as drooping of the brow or lips, or even a frozen or glassy look to the forehead. Dr. John Park uses his skillful and artistic technique to produce the desired effect and to get the most enhancement out of Botox or Xeomin without the undesired “frozen” look.
It may take up to two weeks to see the full results of Botox or Xeomin. Some patients experience some redness, bruising or swelling at the injection site, but this usually resolves itself within a couple of days. Best results are usually on the forehead for “frown lines”, around the eyes for “crow’s feet”, between the eyes for vertical frown lines, sometimes referred to the “11’s”, on the sides of the nasal bridge for radiating lines (“bunny lines”), and also in the neck bands. Because Dr. Park is double Board-Certified in Plastic Surgery and Ophthalmology, many patients choose him for their Botox and dermal filler treatments.
While Botox or Xeomin are very effective in smoothening wrinkles, they are often administered along with dermal fillers, which restore volume to the face. Thus, these non-surgical procedures offer a non-invasive, virtually painless way to combat two of the biggest signs of facial aging.
