Look refreshed and natural with Botox and Dysport treatment in San Mateo, CA

Do people ask, “What’s wrong?” when you are not out of sorts? Do you look tired when you are well-rested? Botox and Dysport injections could be a simple, natural looking solution for you. At Allura Skin & Laser Center, this minimally-invasive treatment is popular with both men and women in the San Mateo, CA area and is administered only by a physician with years of experience.

About Botox

Botox and Dysport are neuromodulators – purified proteins that, when injected into skin, interrupt nerve signals that tell muscles to contract. As facial muscles relax, wrinkles on the skin’s surface created by repeated expressions, smooth out.

Treatment involves shallow injections with a fine needle, into precise points on the face. Most patients report only a minor pinch, so topical anesthetic is not typically needed.

An injection session takes less than half an hour and there is no downtime. You can schedule neuromodulator treatment on your lunch break and return to work or other activities. Some individuals experience redness, bruising, itching, or swelling at injection sites, but this is generally mild and resolves naturally within a few days.

Within a week, noticeable change occurs. Results last three to four months and can be maintained with periodic re-treatment.

Experienced Botox treatment in San Mateo, CA

The Board-certified dermatologists at Allura Skin & Laser Center have decades of combined experience, from providing hundreds of Botox and Dysport treatments. They apply strong technical training, appreciation for the subtle differences in male and female facial anatomy, and natural artistry to neuromodulator treatment for:

  • Frown lines – Vertical folds between the eyebrows.
  • Worry lines – Horizontal forehead furrows, often the result of raising the eyebrows.
  • Crow’s feet – Crinkles at the corners of eyes from squinting.
  • Lip lines – Fine lines radiating outward from lips; a product of puckering the mouth to smoke or drink from a straw.

Neuromodulators can also be used to improve a “gummy smile,” bunny lines on the nose, neck banding, and more. This technique works well alone or as part of a comprehensive nonsurgical rejuvenation strategy.
