Botox in Oakland, California

Oakland Botox Services at Refine Anti-Aging

A Shot of Relief from Wrinkles

Botox is the most popular minimally invasive cosmetic procedure available today, and has been on the market the longest — FDA approved since 2002. Botox relaxes facial muscles and will smooth your stubborn lines and wrinkles to give you a refreshed, rejuvenated appearance that can take years off your face. Refine Anti-Aging and Aesthetics in Oakland, CA, is dedicated to providing you with safe, effective, and expert Botox services.

What is Botox?

A Dynamic Treatment

Botox Cosmetic is an injectable treatment that uses a serum to relax the specific muscles in your face that cause dynamic wrinkles. As we age, our facial muscles tend to get in a bit of a rut.

They make the same motions over and over again using the same muscles, which crease the skin above them like repeatedly folding a piece of paper. Doctors call these dynamic wrinkles because the dynamic motions of the muscles below the skin cause them. By forcing those muscles to just chill for a few months, Botox Cosmetic gives your skin time to recover, reducing and eliminating fine lines and wrinkles.

What are the benefits of Botox injections?

You’ll see some amazing benefits from Botox

The results take effect in seven to ten days and last for about three or four months. The procedure is minimally invasive and relatively painless, takes less than ten minutes, and there is no downtime after the procedure — you can immediately go about your regular activities. While the benefits are great, you should keep in mind that you will need to repeat treatments every three to four months to maintain the results.

Am I a good candidate for Botox?

Beauty for all

Unlike cosmetic surgery, which can be hard on the body, injections like Botox Cosmetic are considered safe for almost all adults who want to reduce dynamic wrinkles. If you are allergic to Botox, its ingredients, or other botulinum toxin treatments, you should avoid Botox. You should also not use Botox if pregnant or breastfeeding. During your consultation, Dr. Vasanwala will go over your medical history to make sure that you are a good candidate for Botox.

Your Botox Procedure

The Treatment Process

Botox treatments are quick, easy, and relatively painless, and the FDA approves them to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Botox injections are placed directly into the muscle with a very fine needle. This injection will block out muscle contractions in a small area, which can get rid of wrinkles and give you smoother skin.

We also use the best Botox syringe called UNITOX, which is FDA-approved for Botox. It precisely delivers Botox without waste, and you can rest assured that the Botox you pay for will all go into your face and not the dead space of the needle. This needle may be more expensive than others, but Dr. Vasanwala cares about using the best products so that you get the best results.

Botox Recovery

Go Tox

Botox is a safe, fast, FDA-approved procedure with little to no downtime for most patients. You may experience some mild discomfort or swelling at the injection site, but it tends to resolve itself soon after treatment. Other than that, you can return to most normal activities immediately after Botox. The only restriction is to avoid rubbing the treatment area for 24 hours after your injection, as it could cause the Botox to move with the pressure. Other than that, you’re good to Bo and go!

Botox Results

Smooth and Beautiful

You’ll start to notice your results coming in around seven to ten days after your injection. Your wrinkles will look a little softer and less creased than they were before. As the muscles relax and the skin rests, your wrinkles will fade away for the next three to four months. Touch-up treatments on a regular schedule can preserve these results over time.

What are the risks?

All treatments have some risks, but going to an experienced provider like Dr. Vasanwala at Refine Anti-Aging is the best way to protect yourself from those risks. For Botox, the most common risks are pain, swelling, or bruising at the injection site, headache, or flu-like symptoms.

Are there similar procedures to Botox?

Yes! Dr. Vasanwala is an artist at heart, and an artist knows it takes the right supplies to make a masterpiece!
