La Jolla Face Specialist for BOTOX®
Highly trained practitioners should be able to use Botox to preserve facial expression while softening wrinkles. Dr. Kolstad carefully maps his patient’s facial muscles and removes movement in specific areas to soften lines and create a natural appearance.
PHILOSOPHY: How Is Dr. Kolstad Different?
There are many medical spas and offices offering cheap Botox treatments performed by nurses or doctors without extensive experience. These providers can frequently achieve the anticipated results and many patients are satisfied. However, Botox administered by inadequately trained professionals can lead to disastrous consequences.
Dr. Kolstad is frequently sought by patients who have had improper Botox injections leading to dropping of the eyelids. This is a treatable, but also avoidable complication of putting Botox into the wrong muscles.
Dr. Kolstad’s expertise in Botox comes from spending a year training with one of Allergan’s Black Diamond Providers. The prestigious Black Diamond is awarded to the top 1% of practices and medical spas using Allergan’s Botox and Juvederm products. It is through working and learning from the best that Dr. Kolstad is able to deliver such high quality care to his patients.
What Areas Can Be Treated With Botox© Cosmetic?
1. Lines between the eyebrows, also known as the “11’s”. Even the deepest creases can be significantly improved with only one treatment.
2. Lines across the forehead, many of our patients also experience a miniBrow Lift, opening the eyes and making them look less tired.
3. Lines around the eyes, frequently referred to as "crow's feet". These respond favorably to BOTOX® Cosmetic but require a highly trained and experienced provider to administer.
4. Fine creases around the mouth, also known as “smoker’s lines” lines. These respond favorably to BOTOX® Cosmetic but require a highly trained and experienced provider to administer.
Why Do We Need BOTOX® Cosmetic?
Dynamic wrinkles are caused by the contractions of underlying facial muscles every time you smile, laugh, or frown. The more emotion you show, the deeper these wrinkles and lines are likely to be. While you may have earned your worry lines, you don't have to show them anymore.
How Does BOTOX® Cosmetic work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic partially blocks the nerve impulses to the facial muscles that are related to expression lines. This causes the muscles that are related to expression to relax. After the solution takes effect, the overlying skin will be smooth and unwrinkled while your untreated facial muscles will still function and contract continuing to cause dynamic expressions.
When Will I See the Results and How Long Will They Last?
You can generally expect to see results in 3-5 days, although it may take as long as two weeks. Most people can expect to enjoy the benefits for 4-6 months.
