Botox San Diego

Dr. Kaestner is proud to offer Botox injections to local Encinitas and San Diego patients. Botox is a safe and popular anti-aging procedure which helps to relax the face and smooth fine lines while also preventing new wrinkles from forming. Precise injections of BOTOX® Cosmetic safely and comfortably relax the muscles as a temporary solution for smoothing fine lines around the eyes (crow’s feet) and across the forehead and brows. The effects last up to six months. Botox is a great skin rejuvenation treatment widely used to treat both men and women.

What is Botox used for?

Botox is a popular wrinkle treatment used to temporarily relax facial muscles and fine lines. The muscles behind our facial expression can lead to premature wrinkling of the skin during the process of facial aging. Fine lines including crows feet, across the forehead, and between the eyes deepen with habitual contraction of these facial expression muscles.

In just one 10-minute treatment your wrinkles, crow’s feet, angry-looking frown lines, and stubborn stress lines can dramatically smooth out almost instantly. No surgery. No sedation or local anesthetic. No recovery time. An experienced Botox surgeon such as Dr. Kaestner can place the product precisely to the muscle to smooth and soften wrinkles without resulting an artificial or “frozen” look.

Is BOTOX® safe?

BOTOX® injections are safe, widely used and approved by the FDA to temporarily smooth, reduce or eliminate wrinkles associated with frown lines, although off-label usage includes several areas of the face and neck. Each year, millions of people opt for a fresher look using BOTOX® Cosmetic injections for wrinkles–not just models and movie stars, but ordinary people from all walks of life.

When Dr. Kaestner gently and expertly injects the BOTOX® / Dysport® Cosmetic, it generally remains only in the specifically treated muscle and gradually disappears over several months without breaking down or traveling throughout the body.

What can I expect from BOTOX® injections?

Overall you’ll look more relaxed and refreshed but not like “you’ve had work done.” The entire treatment takes about 10 minutes. Discomfort is minimal and brief — most people compare the sensation to a bug bite. Most patients return to work or normal activity immediately.

Dysport is a neuromodulator, the same as Botox. Neuromodulators work to block nerve signals telling muscles to contract, resulting in a relaxed and smoother look. Safe and FDA approved Dysport injections are quick and non-invasive, smoothing out frown lines, wrinkles between the eyebrows, forehead lines, and crow’s feet.

Difference Between Botox and Dysport

Dysport is formulated slightly differently than Botox. The Unique properties of Dysport allow it to spread over a larger area than Botox. Dr. Kaestner uses the analogy of kilometers versus miles when comparing Botox and Dysport, they are effectively the same, Dysport just goes a little further than Botox.
