Botox – Sacramento, Roseville, El Dorado Hills, Modesto, Stockton
Dr. Charles Perry

Botox Cosmetic is administered by Dr. Charles Perry for treatment of forehead wrinkles, crow's feet and other aging signs around the eyes. Botox works by disrupting the release of a chemical within the face that causes muscle contraction, which subsequently leads to formation of wrinkles and lines. By paralyzing facial muscles, Botox temporarily delays the aging process and reduces the appearance of existing wrinkles and lines.

Botox Candidacy

Botox can be administered to healthy men and women seeking to restore facial youthfulness without undergoing invasive surgery. However, because Botox is derived from a toxin called botulinum toxin type A, patients may be asked to undergo an allergy test prior to receiving Botox.

What You Should Know Before Receiving Botox

Botox Results and Touch-Ups

Botox results generally become evident within one week following treatment and can last from three to six months. Just like all facial injectables, Botox results are temporary. After three to six months, as Botox effects begin to fade, touch-up treatments are needed to maintain the appearance-enhancing results.

How Is Botox Administered?

Botox is administered by Dr. Perry at his cosmetic surgery practice. Prior to injecting Botox, Dr. Perry first identifies the treatment areas and determines the correct dosage. He then applies topical anesthesia for maximum patient comfort during the procedure and gently injects Botox under the skin. Treatment time generally lasts less than 30 minutes, after which time patients are free to return to their daily routine.

Risks Associated with Botox

Although extremely effective and popular, Botox is associated with some serious complications. Besides mild to moderate side effects, which are rare and treatable, the toxin found in Botox can be life-threatening should it spread beyond the injection site. However, when Botox is administered by an extremely well-trained medical professional such as Sacramento Botox provider Dr. Charles Perry, the risk of complications is greatly reduced. The most common side effects associated with Botox include:

If you experience any of the above side effects for more than 24 to 48 hours after receiving Botox, please contact Dr. Perry.

Botox is not recommended for individuals who are allergic to eggs and botulinum toxin. Likewise, pregnant women and patients with an active infection and/or a neuromuscular disorder should not receive Botox.

After Receiving Botox

After Botox their treatment, all of Dr. Perry's patients are provided with detailed aftercare instructions and tips on how to maximize their cosmetic results.
