What is BOTOX?
Years of making the same facial expressions, like smiling, laughing, and frowning, can create unwanted lines and wrinkles. Diminishing these signs of aging on the upper face is simple and safe with BOTOX injections at The Plastics Doc. If you don't have these signs of aging yet but want to stay ahead of the aging process, BOTOX injectable treatments can also help to head off the development of minor dynamic expression creases. BOTOX injections are a filtered strain of type A botulinum toxin that temporarily weakens the movements of the muscles that allow us to make particular facial expressions. The crevices created from these repetitive facial expressions are called “dynamic” because they are due to facial activity. Plastic surgeon Dr. Samuel Salcedo can perform BOTOX to help soften the look of these lines by restricting these facial expressions and allowing your skin above the muscles the ability to smooth itself without interference.

"Dr. Salcedo did my surgery a little over a year ago and I had an amazing experience. I knew when his new clinic opened that I had to come in and get some injectables! The office is so gorge and all the staff and welcoming and nice. I highly recommend getting your Botox, filler or any other procedure done with the plastics doc! He’s very informative and makes sure to tailor your service to your wants and needs. It was way less painful than I have previously experienced at other places and my lips looks amazing! Just stop reading this review and go make an appointment! ❤️"- C.D. / Google / May 17, 2022
"I’ve had different consultations with different Doctors and Dr.Salcedo by far has been my favorite. His calm friendly energy to start , but the best is how he explain the process and listened to what I wanted . He made me feel comfortable to tell him my thoughts on what I wanted and he explain how it would look if we did it my way, He gave me some other ideas and I realize that the results I wanted weren’t going to happen with what I initially thought I wanted to get done . Today is day one, I’m excited for the swelling to go down but can tell he did a beautiful job with my fillers and Botox. The girls Charline, Nurse Celi, Nurse Cecilia were absolutely so sweet, great energy and super helpful. Their attitudes were great which is something I always feel is very important. I look forward to going to DR.Salcedo for all my future touch ups and any other treatment/ surgery’s I ever consider."- B. / Google / Jun 21, 2022

Can I Get BOTOX?
BOTOX injections are a great option if you want to smooth the appearance of dynamic lines and wrinkles on your face nonsurgically. Often thought of as a preventive treatment, BOTOX can even help prevent signs of aging if wrinkles have not yet formed. It's a terrific nonsurgical approach if you have forehead lines or frown lines between the brows. It is also a terrific solution for lines that form around your eyes. If you experience deeper wrinkles, a filler product may be a better option. Furthermore, if you are older with a lot of elasticity loss, you could consider a facelift for an optimal outcome. Depending on your degree of skin elasticity and desired outcome, Dr. Salcedo will go over if BOTOX treatments are the best for you during your consultation.
How is BOTOX Administered?
BOTOX treatments are available as an outpatient procedure at either of our The Plastics Doc locations in Corona or Beverly Hills, CA. During your consultation with plastic surgeon Dr. Salcedo, you will be asked to make a few expressions using your upper face, like squinting, frowning, etc., which will help him determine injection placement. This specific injection is most commonly placed between the eyebrows, on the Crow's feet, and along the forehead. Once ready for the injection, your face will be prepared and BOTOX will be injected under the skin through a fine needle, followed by a cool compress to help alleviate discomfort, swelling, and bruising. You can request a numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable, but it usually is not necessary. BOTOX injections typically take about 10 – 15 minutes, and the great part is you can return to your usual day almost immediately.
What Can I Expect After My BOTOX Injections?
Following your BOTOX treatment, you can get right back to your daily routine. Keep in mind, however, strenuous activities, like exercise, should be avoided for 24 hours following your treatment. For best results, sleep with your head elevated for at least one night and do not touch your face so you don't accidentally spread the BOTOX to other areas. The treated sections of your face may be slightly red, bruised, or swollen for 2 – 3 days, but you will not have any serious or long-lasting side effects. In most cases, it usually takes just about a week before you will see your final results of BOTOX. The results generally last 3 – 4 months. Dr. Salcedo or a member of his team can help you decide how often to get follow-up treatments at The Plastics Doc to extend your results.
Will I look fake after BOTOX?
Our popular BOTOX formula allows your features to look soft and wrinkle-free. However, BOTOX should be administered by a skilled professional for the most natural-looking results possible. Dr. Salcedo has experience helping men and women achieve refreshed and rejuvenated outcomes.
How does BOTOX compare to other wrinkle relaxers?
There are small but noticeable differences between BOTOX and other wrinkle relaxers in Corona and Beverly Hills, CA. We can explain the differences in the formula, which may impact the time it takes to see results and how long the results will last. Our goal is to match patients with the perfect treatment option, whether it's BOTOX or another product.
Are BOTOX injections painful?
Most patients won't need a numbing cream before BOTOX treatment. Most discomfort is felt after the injections, and any side effects are temporary. You may feel a small pinch as the needle is administered into the skin. Our team at The Plastics Doc can ease your fears and provide options if you are concerned about pain.
Are BOTOX injections safe?
BOTOX is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments for a reason: it has been extensively studied and shown to be safe for cosmetic results. That said, as with any medical procedure, there are potential risks involved. Our team can review all possible complications before treatment so you can make an informed decision about your care.
Can I combine BOTOX with other treatments?
Absolutely! BOTOX can be combined with other cosmetic treatments like dermal fillers for optimal results. Dermal fillers can help address volume loss and plump up areas that seem hollow or gaunt. We have helped countless patients achieve their desired look with custom treatment plans.
