BOTOX® Cosmetic for San Luis Obispo, Fresno and Santa Barbara Patients
When used appropriately, BOTOX® Cosmetic will not radically change a patient's looks or create an unnatural appearance. Instead, Dr. Stallman, a Pismo Beach plastic surgeon, uses the product to smooth dynamic wrinkles for a natural, refreshed look.
Based on an individual's pattern of facial animation and wrinkles, BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered with a very fine needle to selected facial areas. Anesthesia is not required and the procedure takes less than ten minutes. Most patients experience minimal brief discomfort which resolves by the time the injections are completed. The full effect from the treatment is usually attained within ten days and will last approximately four months with variation from individual to individual. Treatment has been particularly effective at reducing frown lines, forehead creases, and "crow's feet". More advanced techniques allow for subtle facial shaping such as brow lifting, elevation of turned down corners of the mouth, and improvement of vertical lip wrinkles. Other noninvasive treatments such as chemical peels, laser resurfacing or filler injections(Restylane®, JUVÉDERM®, Radiesse®) may be combined with BOTOX® Cosmetic for even more impressive results.
Dr. Stallman has been using BOTOX® Cosmetic for many years for medical and cosmetic purposes. As an oculoplastic surgeon, he has had vast experience treating patients with facial movement disorders (blepharospasms) which has enhanced his ability to deliver consistent natural-appearing aesthetic improvements for his cosmetic surgery patients from Santa Maria to Fresno and beyond.
Prior to its cosmetic use, oculoplastic surgeons had been using BOTOX® Cosmetic for approximately fifteen years for treatment of various eyelid and facial movement disorders and had been pioneers in its development. Through the long experience of safely treating these patients, the cosmetic benefits of the product became apparent and usage evolved. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a natural purified protein which is administered in very low doses via a few tiny injections into overactive muscles that cause facial lines to form. It works by relaxing these muscles, thereby reducing the wrinkles they cause.
