Botox in San Jose, for facial rejuvenation.
For many years now, patients have successfully used Botox to enhance their appearance. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in people 18 and older. The results are temporary, with the average length of effectiveness being 3 to 4 months. Patients often schedule their injection appointments regularly and in advance, planning ahead for this timeframe.
Patients note improvement in the "frown line" area, as well as in the "crow's feet" and forehead areas. There is usually no 'downtime' following injections. Patients may experience some discomfort, swelling, occasional discoloration or bruising, or headache. Most often, these side effects are brief, and easily managed.
Dr. Lepore uses injectable treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic to give his San Jose patients a wide range of enhancements, and not just wrinkle and crease relaxation.
This young woman wanted to reduce the size of the masseter muscles (jaw muscles), which she felt were overly prominent, as well as uneven.
Dr. Lepore injected BOTOX into the areas to relax the muscle and reduce its prominence. After treatment, our patient noted a significant softening of the angle of her jaw.
In addition, she had injections of JUVÉDERM®, a dermal filler, to further re-shape and define her jawline. She is very pleased with the results of her injections.
On average, BOTOX injections need to be repeated after 3 to 4 months. Resutls from JUVÉDERM injections typically last from 6 months to a year.
Palo Alto - Botox, and other injectables, such as Juvederm and Restylane, are among the most popular procedures for our patients seeking Palo Alto Plastic Surgery. BOTOX © 2009 Allergan, Inc. The results seen by this patient show another example of the use of this prescribed, injectable treatment for frown lines, forehead creases, and crow's feet. More and more men are making these injections part of their regular "maintenance" routines. Dr. Lepore is a Board-Certified, Stanford-trained plastic surgeon, who began his Palo Alto Plastic Surgery practice there more than 20 years ago.
This woman came to Dr. Lepore in San Jose seeking a facelift for subtle improvements with a natural touch. She was interested in facial and neck rejuvenation, with concentration on several areas, while preserving her own natural and unique beauty.
She had a face and neck lift, as well as BOTOX Cosmetic injections. Dr. Lepore performed facelift, neck lift, and BOTOX injections together in our fully accredited San Jose surgical suite. Our patient has been very pleased with the changes to her appearance.
This 55-year old woman was interested in eyelid rejuvenation in San Jose. She was disturbed by what she felt were the aging effects of loosening skin on her eyelids.
After discussions with Dr. Lepore, this patient decided to undergo blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, on both her upper and lower lids. In addition, she chose to have BOTOX® Cosmetic injections in the "frown line" and "crow's feet" areas, feeling the combination of procedures has given her entire face a lift. She is very pleased with her refreshed appearance.
