Surgeon: Vincent D. Lepore, MD

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.
