Man Having Botox Treatment Botox is a neuromodulator that relaxes the muscles that create wrinkles. In capable, experienced hands, it allows you to age more gracefully, maintaining the best version of you. Board-Certified Dermatologist, Dr. Amanda Lloyd, suggests that women and men in the Encinitas area and across San Diego county embrace Botox as a preemptive stance against signs of aging.

Strategic advantage

The old adage, “the best defense is a good offense” is based in military strategy. A proactive approach (rather than a passive attitude) hinders the enemy’s ability to attack. When the enemy is dynamic wrinkles, an early program of Botox is an ideal preventive strategy for:

  • Frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Lines around the eyes
  • Lines on the upper lip
  • “Bunny lines” on the nose
  • Chin crease
  • “Gummy” smile
  • Neck bands

Botox in your skin care routine

Dr. Amanda Lloyd explains how Botox can be used in your skin care routine to get young and flawless skin. Dynamic wrinkles form from repetitive frowning, squinting, and other facial animations. They cause skin to crease, leaving wrinkles over time. Small, periodic amounts of Botox provide great benefit. Just a few tiny injections decrease the release of the chemical that causes muscles to contract, resulting in less movement of the treated area.

Dynamic wrinkles form from repetitive frowning, squinting, and other facial animations. They cause skin to crease, leaving wrinkles over time. Small, periodic amounts of Botox provide great benefit. Just a few tiny injections decrease the release of the chemical that causes muscles to contract, resulting in less movement of the treated area. This gives the skin the time it needs to recover and the wrinkle to fade. It takes time for Botox to bind with receptors, so expect to see results in about two weeks and with a consistent treatment strategy the surface of skin will gradually smooth out and lines will fade.
