Botox can be used to treat facial wrinkles such as crow’s feet and forehead creases. It works by weakening the muscles that cause large wrinkles. Botox® takes effect several days after treatment and lasts approximately four months. We can administer Botox to patients in Atherton, Los Gatos, Morgan Hill, Palo Alto, Los Altos, Cupertino, Saratoga, San Jose, and the larger Bay area. We have three offices to serve you.
Botox® treats areas of the face that often do not respond well to other therapy. It can be combined with different treatments for maximal rejuvenation, such as using laser therapy to minimize finer wrinkles. An advantage of botox therapy is that you can have your treatment and return immediately to your regular schedule.
