About Botox in Sacramento
Botox is a neuromodulator that reduces the appearance of wrinkles and lines on the face. FDA-approved, this treatment has been popular for many years. As a minimally-invasive treatment, you can enjoy dramatic improvements in your face in just a few days!
Botox, or botulinum toxin, will temporarily pause muscle contractions in the affected muscles.
Botox works by blocking the release of certain neurotransmitters, such as acetylcholine. Acetylcholine tells the muscles to contract. When acetylcholine is blocked, your muscles remain relaxed and do not contract or tense up. By strategically injecting certain facial muscles, Botox will help release years of tension. Botox also halts the further development of pre-existing wrinkles. This process results in a smooth, relaxed appearance that can take years off how old you look.
- Smoothes fine lines and wrinkles
- Prevents new wrinkles from forming
- Dramatically reduces excessive sweating
- Reduces the severity of migraines and improves quality of life
- Resolves eye twitching and squinting
Candidates are relatively healthy individuals who are not allergic to any component of Botox. Botox injections are great for men and women that want to preserve their youth and get rid of moderate to severe wrinkles. Botox has also been found to help resolve conditions beyond just wrinkles due to its unique neuromodulation properties.
Upper Facial Wrinkles
Botox reduces the visibility of crow’s feet, under-eye wrinkles, and frown lines. Many patients are bothered by deep creases in their forehead that make them constantly appear tired, angry, or worried. Botox will ease that tension and help you appear rested and alert.

Prior to your Botox appointment, you will need to stop smoking and stop taking blood-thinning medications, such as aspirin and ibuprofen. Taking a break from these products will prepare your body for a healthy treatment and recovery. Notify our office if you sustain an injury or sunburn on your face so that we can reschedule your appointment.
When you arrive, we will welcome you to your treatment room. Your clinician will first clean the treatment area then apply a topical numbing agent. After you feel comfortable, we will strategically administer the Botox injections in the best locations suited to each individual. Other clinics might administer Botox in a uniform manner, but we customize each treatment to each patient’s unique anatomy which leads to optimal results.
NorCal Liposculpture’s in-depth understanding of the tapestry of muscles below your skin will help us target the muscles that cause unsightly wrinkles. By expertly targeting these muscles, we preserve your natural facial features and create a balance between your regular features and cosmetic improvements.
Botox sessions usually will take about thirty minutes.
After your procedure, you will need to avoid touching your face and bumping injection sites. Some people might experience itchiness or mild discomfort at the site of injections. This is common and should dissipate within a few days. You may gently apply an ice pack to the treated areas to reduce any swelling or bruising. If you experience prolonged discomfort, please contact our office so we can assist you.
Your regular skin care routine may need some adjustments. Avoid wearing makeup until the treatment site has completely healed. After about forty-eight hours, a light layer of makeup can be applied to reduce any redness.
After your Botox injections, you may begin to notice a reduction in your facial muscles’ ability to contract. This will gradually increase within the first 7 days. Then, you will see those fine lines fade away!
Your results develop during your first week. Your wrinkles will slowly fade away and a young, smooth face will surface. Botox can last between three to six months. You will know it is time for a maintenance appointment when your wrinkles begin to slowly re-appear. This transition will be slow and you will be able to spruce up your appearance without anyone noticing those wrinkles. One study found 9 in 10 patients showed at least moderate improvements.
