Botox Injections In Corona, Riverside County

Botox Injections

Botox® Cosmetic is a substance which causes the temporary relaxation of muscles.  It has been used safely for millions of people to decrease the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles without surgery. The treatment is a quick procedure with no downtime and significant improvement in 7 to 10 days. The optimum result varies individually. There are three main areas that may be treated with Botox: the glabellar area (between the eyebrows), the forehead horizontal lines, and the area lateral to the eyes (crow's feet).

Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin

All three are purified protein called BTX-A (botulinum toxin type A) that are injected exactly the same way directly into the muscles beneath the skin on the forehead and around the eyes. The result will be temporarily relaxing of the injected muscles with less or no muscle movement for 3 months. Botox, Dysport and Xeomin all work by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles, thereby reducing the muscle activity that is responsible for the formation of frown lines between the brows, crow’s feet around the eyes and horizontal lines on the forehead.

Benefits of Botox Injections


BOTOX ® Cosmetic is FDA-approved and most widely marketed for temporary improvement of frown lines in men and women aged 18 to 65. It's a natural, purified protein, which is used in very low doses to relax the overactive muscles that cause frown lines to form. Botox treatments last about three months, after which lines gradually revert to their pre-treatment appearance.


The use of BOTOX for facial wrinkles and excessive sweating has been well studied. In 2004, BOTOX was approved for use in curbing excessive sweating. People with a condition called "primary axillary hyperhidrosis" produce four or five times the amount of underarm sweat as is normal.  Botox treatments work by temporarily paralyzing the nerve that stimulates sweat glands. BOTOX can also be used for excessive sweating of the palms.

  • One study resulted in 91% of patients who received Botox underarm injections saw their sweating cut in half in a month. Patients can get follow-up injections for continued relief every few months. The FDA cited one study that found the average duration of response around six months.


The connection between headaches and BOTOX began emerging in 1992 when a physician in California noted his patients who got Botox injections said they were having fewer headaches. The most popular current use is to help fade frown lines, but a number of studies have found that Botox treatments could have medical benefits as well. 



BOTOX®  is the only FDA-approved, preventive treatment that is injected by a practitioner every 12 weeks for adults with Chronic Migraine (15 or more headache days a month, each lasting 4 hours or more). BOTOX®  prevents up to 9 headache days a month (vs up to 7 for placebo).   BOTOX®  therapy is not approved for adults with migraine who have 14 or fewer headache days a month.

When to expect results

In clinical trials, BOTOX®  provided a significant reduction in headache days after the first treatment. After the second treatment (at 24 weeks), BOTOX®  prevented up to 9 headache days a month (vs up to 7 with placebo injection).

 Why commit to 2 treatments?

 Committing to 2 treatment sessions is important in order to see how BOTOX®  is working for you, since BOTOX®  showed significant reduction in headache days at 24 weeks.  Talk to your doctor about your progress, and as you start to see changes in the amount of headache days you’re having each month, keep track with our  Headache Diary.

 What happens next: a 12-week treatment schedule

 Based on your progress, you and your doctor will discuss re-treatment every 12 weeks. Remember: BOTOX®  is a preventive treatment, which means it's taken to prevent headaches and migraines from occurring. So, it is recommended that treatment be given once every 12 weeks.

 The best way for you and your doctor to know if BOTOX®  is meeting your treatment needs is to give it time to work, so talk to your doctor, and stay on track.
