Desirable results without the risk: Botox treatment in Walnut Creek
The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute is a safe and healthy place for all your cosmetic and general dermatology needs. Board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Christine Lee, is not only adept at administering all products at the center, but she also works with companies to invent new technologies to treat skin conditions.
Botox treatment in Walnut Creek results in the look you desire, whether it’s subtle improvement or a dramatic yet still natural-looking boost to your appearance. Due to the expertise with each service available at the center, the risks of complications are eliminated.
The difference is in the technique
Dr. Lee or skilled physician assistants inject a
customized amount of Botox into target muscles responsible for the
expression lines you want to treat. In a gel-like form, Botox is applied
through very fine needles. Both the concentration and amount is
adjusted to your specific needs. Generally, a smaller amount and lower
concentration results in less relaxation of the treated muscles. The
effects are refined but no less attractive; however, you may need to
have a touch-up sooner than a patient whose Botox is more concentrated.
Over time, patients who regularly get Botox treatments need less of it
as muscles adjust to the solution and are retrained. When appropriately
injected, you avoid a frozen look, because only a few of the dozens of
muscles that may be required to make a facial expression are treated.
While Botox is commonly used to treat frown lines between the eyebrows and crow’s feet around the eyes, Dr. Lee and her team also improve the effects of chronic clenching of the lips and jaw, including:
- Vertical lip lines
- Vertical platysmal bands on the neck
Botox is also FDA-approved to relieve excessive sweating and migraine headaches. Call Dr. Lee’s team at (925) 528-0117 to schedule your customized treatment.Back to Botox Page
