Botox® for Wrinkles

As a doctor, I enjoy helping people feel their best and look their best.  Are you curious about BOTOX® injections in San Diego?  I use BOTOX mostly for frown lines and lines on and around the forehead. It is beautiful for wrinkles. BOTOX is one of the top nonsurgical procedures performed each year in San Diego. BOTOX is a FDA-approved solution to diminish the appearance of wrinkles.

Botox is an easy way to look better.

You can look younger with injections. Unlike  surgery, Botox treatments will not change your facial appearance and you can immediately return to your normal routine. Others may not realize you have had  BOTOX, they often comment on someone looking great or rested.  BOTOX is easy to use and will continue to be used for wrinkles because it works and is fast and done in the office without sedation.

Botox is Botulinum type A, is an injectable anti-aging treatment that uses is Botulinum type A to block the nerve impulses of our facial muscles. Habitual movements of these muscles – like frowning, pursing lips, squinting and so on – are responsible for creating the expression lines on the face. For example, frown lines across the forehead and clefts are often due to squinting or raising of the brows in an habitual pattern. Botox can put these overworked muscles at rest and give a smooth look to the skin.

For your safety, a physician trained in the specific anatomy of the muscles and skin area around the eyes to avoid wrong dose or damaging muscle groups, should do the procedure.  I have  significant training in Botox and enjoys seeing the results of happy patients with smooth skin.

I have used it for years! It gives real, noticeable results, no surgery and no recovery time. This is the reason why it is chosen by millions of women, men and their doctors.  You may feel that the lines between your brows make you look tired, or older looking.


Your discomfort will be minimal and brief. I usually numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream. The treatment involves tiny injection of small amounts into the muscles to weaken them. I have found the site will need reinjection every 3 months for the first year or two. After that time the results may last as long as 5-6 months. The muscles thin from disuse.

The needle for injection is so small that patients are amazed that the treatments are so easy. You will spend time with me discussing the procedure to feel comfortable with BOTOX . The procedure will take approximately 10-20 minutes in the office. Most patients are ready to go and there is no downtime following BOTOX. The side effects I have found are mild pain around the site. The site usually looks better in a couple of days. You may have sensitive skin and  be red and puffy for several hours.  I have not had a problem with infection, bleeding, bruising, but it could occur. . The results of cosmetic procedures vary, but can last up to eight months. Many news, TV, celebrities get it done one day before a show. If you bruise easily, you may want to do it when you have 2 or 3 days down time. I feel comfortable using BOTOX on my skin and get many compliments. I want to share it. You will get beautiful safe results. I have gratifying results that bring my patients back to me. Some of my patients come twice a year.

I can also offer evaluation of your skin and how you to provide effective and gratifying results in the treatment using creams and other procedures I am currently using. I offer many skin treatments that I am popular for and can give you patients testimonies of what they have experienced and what works for them. I may recommend other treatments that may be a better match. BOTOX cannot treat wrinkles form sun damage.

I suggest that you avoid frequent use of anti-inflammatory medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen, Motrin, etc. at least two weeks before your treatment. You should also avoid alcohol for at least one week prior to treatment in order to prevent bruising.
