Widely acclaimed and overwhelmingly popular, BOTOX® Cosmetic has become a staple of aesthetic medicine. It is often the first treatment people try, prior to considering surgery. BOTOX is, in fact, a great way to enter the facial cosmetic world, as the results can be beautiful and the risks are minimal. Dr. David Mabrie ensures that the men and women who visit his office truly understand what BOTOX in San Francisco can and cannot do, so that they can make educated choices.
Wrinkle Reduction with BOTOX
BOTOX Cosmetic reduces the appearance of wrinkles between the brows, on the forehead, and around the eyes that are caused by repeated movement of facial muscles over time. You're probably most familiar with frown lines and crow's feet, the wrinkles that BOTOX is FDA-approved to treat.
The way BOTOX works is surprisingly simple. It is made with a purified protein that, when injected into a targeted facial muscle, blocks the nerve impulses to that muscle. As a result, the muscle relaxes and the skin lies smooth, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Results appear in several days and will last about 3 to 4 months. Treatment is repeatable, so you can maintain your new look.
BOTOX is a procedure that brings many men and women through the door of a cosmetic surgery office. What they may discover during their consultation is that most people who are candidates for BOTOX could also benefit from dermafillers. Dr. Mabrie specializes exclusively in plastic surgery of the face, and brings a fresh new perspective to non-surgical options. He can recommend an injectable treatment for your specific goals.
Go Beyond BOTOX
An innovative non-surgical option:
Dermafillers plump up and fill in,
reducing wrinkles & improving features.
Many people discover that dermafillers are better suited for their needs. While BOTOX can only improve wrinkles caused by movement of facial muscles, dermafillers can improve a wider variety of wrinkles and creases, such as nasolabial folds (parentheses), smile lines, and lip lines. In addition to wrinkle reduction, dermafillers may also be used for gentle facial sculpting. They can add volume to features such as the nose, cheeks and lips. They can also fill in the area beneath the eyes, reducing dark circles.
Of course, BOTOX and dermafillers are only as effective as the injector performing the procedure. Dr. Mabrie is an artist and a skilled technician when it comes to these treatments. His focus on the face has led to a remarkable understanding of facial skin and structure, an understanding that helps him achieve exceptional results.
