Botox and fillers are minimally invasive treatments to address age-related skin issues like wrinkles and lost facial volume.
Botox is an injectable medication made from the purified form of botulinum toxin. In small doses, the toxin temporarily paralyzes contracted facial muscles that contribute to deep-set frown lines across your brow and crow’s feet around your eyes.
As your muscles relax, your skin smooths out, making lines and creases less visible.
Dermal fillers contain substances like hyaluronic acid, a natural substance already in your body that keeps skin plump and youthful.
California Dermatology Physicians offers Botox and a variety of popular dermal fillers. The providers also complete skin evaluations and discuss your aesthetic goals to find out which treatment is best for you.
You might be a candidate for Botox therapy if you’re unhappy with the creases and lines across your brow or around your eyes. These issues develop after years of smiling, squinting, and frowning.

These aesthetic issues are common with aging when your body slows down its production of collagen and elastin — two essential proteins needed for healthy skin.
During your Botox treatment at California Dermatology Physicians, your provider injects precise amounts of Botox into the muscles across your brow. They use a fine needle to minimize discomfort and can also apply a numbing cream to your skin in advance to prevent pain.
Some people see immediate results of Botox injections, but it can take up to a week to see the full benefit of treatment. Botox results can last for 2-3 months before you may need maintenance injections.
If you receive dermal fillers, your provider injects them into the areas of face that you want to address. Fillers provide instant results that enhance the natural contours of your face, which can last for a few months to a year before you need additional injections.
