Smiling, laughing, frowning, squinting, smoking, drinking through straws, playing in the sun, kissing, aging … the lines of your face reflect the years and the life you’ve lived.
But the facial lines and wrinkles of life aren’t necessarily attractive. Wish you didn’t have so much “character” in your face?
Desert Eyesthetics offers a solution with Botox®, the highly-popular, non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment proven to be very effective at reducing the “frown” lines between the eyebrows, forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet around the eyes and unwanted lines in other areas. Botox safely and effectively blocks hyperactive nerves that cause tiny facial muscles to contract and create expression lines. The untreated muscles allow normal facial expression.
When given by a physician, the risk of complication is reduced. Injecting Botox requires a special technique and extensive knowledge of facial anatomy. Dr. Garcia is a board certified, fellowship trained oculofacial plastics specialist with a skilled, steady hand and the experience needed to do it right.
You can expect no downtime, minimal discomfort and depending on the area treated, only a little swelling that lasts a few hours and possibly some light bruising. Effects last from four to six months, and some clinical studies have shown that regular treatments over time seem to have a longer lasting effect.
For a younger, more relaxed and rejuvenated appearance without surgery, we may recommend the wrinkle-fighting duo – Botox and Juvederm. The two can work hand in hand to prolong the results of your treatment: Juvederm to fill in existing wrinkles, and Botox to prevent new wrinkles.
