Botox in Northern California

About Botox

Learn how BOTOX in Northern California can help you look and feel your best.

To diminish the effects of aging and to prevent lines, wrinkles, and lax skin from forming on the forehead and upper face, Allegro MedSpa of Santa Rosa is proud to offer BOTOX to our patients.

This facial rejuvenation procedure provides amazing results and is popular among both men and women. BOTOX in Northern California can make a dramatic enhancement to dynamic facial wrinkles, which are the result of expressions and movement with the muscles contracting on the forehead.

The lines disappear as the face relaxes, but dynamic creases can still exist. BOTOX is a purified strain of botulinum toxin (type A) that temporarily blocks the movements of the underlying tissue and muscle. To diminish the appearance of these dynamic lines and wrinkles, BOTOX is injected to relax and soften the skin. This specific injection is most commonly placed between the brows where the number “11” appears, on the Crow’s feet, and throughout the forehead. We also use Dysport and soon will add DAXI (Daxibotulinumtoxin A), which are variants of Botox.

Who Should Get Botox

Ideal Candidates

BOTOX injections in Northern California are ideal for anyone seeking wrinkle- and crease-free skin. 

BOTOX, DAXI, and Dysport are used for individuals who hope to diminish and soften the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, lines, and moderate folds on their face, including vertical “banding” on the neck, in a nonsurgical way. BOTOX, DAXI, and Dysport are often thought of as a preventive treatment even if static wrinkles have not yet formed — keep in mind how often you tend to make facial expressions.

It’s an effective, non-surgical solution if you have obvious forehead lines or frown lines between the brows. It is also a solution for crow’s feet around the eyes. BOTOX  and Dysport can also offer a subtle but desirable “lateral brow lift” without the need for a surgical procedure. If you have deeper lines, a combination of BOTOX, or Dysport, and a filler may be a better option.

How it works

Procedure Technique

Learn how BOTOX in Northern California works. 

We perform our BOTOX and DAXI injectable treatments in Santa Rosa as an outpatient procedure at Allegro MedSpa of Santa Rosa. If it is your first time visiting us in Santa Rosa, California for BOTOX, we may perform the injection within the same appointment as your consultation.

We will ask you to make various facial expressions using the upper face, such as squinting or frowning, which will allow us to mark where the injections are to be placed. The skin will be cleansed and we will inject BOTOX or DAXI under the skin using a fine needle, followed by a cold compress to help decrease discomfort, swelling, and bruising. You can request a numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable, but it is generally not needed. BOTOX injections typically take about 10 – 15 minutes, after which you can get back to your normal day almost right away.

What to Expect

Here’s what to expect when undergoing BOTOX in Northern California.

After your treatment

After the BOTOX or DAXI injection, we allow you to return to your typical schedule; strenuous activities, like exercise, should be postponed for at least a day. We will ask you to sleep with your head propped up for the first night and to not touch your face, which may accidentally spread the treatment to other areas.

Side Effects

The treated areas of the face may become slightly bruised, red, or swollen for a couple of days, but you will not have any severe or lasting side effects.

Results

In most cases, it takes about 3 to 7 days before the full effects of BOTOX become visible. The results generally last 3 to 6 months.

Follow Up

You should speak to your injector about how often to schedule a follow-up appointment at Allegro MedSpa in Santa Rosa to refresh your results.

Before & After

From Our Clients

First let me say, absolutely amazing staff! I have been here twice, the first time for a skin consultation and skincare routine. Came away with a skincare program that suited my needs as well as a friendly consultation that made me feel so comfortable. (I don’t often go anywhere without my make up on, but everyone made me feel “normal” and beautiful and accepted for me) My second time I visited the MedSpa, (along with my Aunt) I met with Kelsey! And let me say…loud and absolutely clear!…..She is truly awesome!

My experience at Allegro MedSpa was wonderful! Kelsey performed my procedures that day and I could not have felt more reassured that I was making the right choices to meet my specific needs and desires.

Her experience quelled any anxiety that crept up. I had complete peace trusting her suggestions and advice for not only treatment now but beneficial procedures in the future.😀

Kelsey was patient, engaged, generous and made me feel like I was the most important person in her life for the time I was with her!

I will absolutely be asking for Kelsey again in the future!

How much does BOTOX in Northern California cost?

The total cost for BOTOX injections will depend on how much product we use. This will vary based on your needs and goals. During your consultation, we will form your personal treatment plan before we can estimate your costs. BOTOX can produce significant results when performed by a skilled injector, but it can be unsafe if performed by someone without training, which is why it is better to avoid places offering cheap or knock-off injections. To save money, ask about the Brilliant Distinctions Rewards Program so you can start earning points for BOTOX and other Allergan products, like Juvéderm.

How long will my results last?

Improvements from BOTOX can last up to four months. Most patients schedule a visit every season to sustain their results, but you may come back sooner. If you are getting BOTOX while you are younger as a preventive treatment, you may be able to schedule visits further apart. After listening to your goals and forming your treatment plan, we will be able to estimate when you should schedule your next appointment.

What is the difference between wrinkle relaxers and fillers?

Wrinkle relaxers (like BOTOX) and wrinkle fillers (like Juvéderm and Restylane) are both treatments that improve the appearance of wrinkles and smooth fine lines. BOTOX relaxes overused facial muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles, like frown lines (between the eyebrows), Crow’s feet (in the outer corner’s of the eyes), forehead wrinkles, and smile lines. Dermal fillers add volume under the skin to correct hollow areas and decrease fine lines throughout your face. Based on your goals, we may recommend BOTOX, fillers, or a combination of both for a “liquid facelift.”

What's the difference between BOTOX, Dysport®, and Xeomin®?

BOTOX, Dysport, and Xeomin are brands of injectable wrinkle relaxers that use botulinum toxin (type A). They all relax facial muscles to reduce dynamic wrinkles, but each formula is designed to suit specific areas and needs. There are subtle differences between them, including the amount in each dose, treatment spread, and length of results. We will choose the best one to achieve your goals.

Is BOTOX safe?

When applied properly, BOTOX rarely causes any complications. With that said, it is important to choose someone who has experience and training in handling this medication. Overinjecting BOTOX can give you an undesirable outcome. A skilled injector will use just enough of the medication to effectively freeze the muscles that cause wrinkles while leaving nearby muscles unaffected. One of the most popular cosmetic treatments on the market today, BOTOX is safe and approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In addition to cosmetic uses, BOTOX is also used to treat medical issues, including facial spasms, excessive sweating, uncontrollable blinking, and migraines.
