Unfortunately, aging is unavoidable in life. No one yet has figured out a way to fully stop the aging process or turn back the clock to your ideal youthful appearance. Regardless of enhanced health and skincare routines, living your life, with all that it involves, can result in lines and wrinkles. Stress, problems, and worry can add to natural aging, worsening the effects.
Enter Botox. It is known and used worldwide as a cosmetic treatment that is fast, safe, minimally invasive, and able to deliver stunning results. It has been around for the past 16 years and is likely the most common aesthetic treatment for both women and men everywhere. Treatment sessions can be as short as 15 minutes leaving you looking years younger when the full effects are realized within one to two weeks.
At Natomas Laser & Aesthetics, our Sacramento Botox providers are trained and experienced to enhance your face to accomplish a subtle, natural result that remains you looking like you, only better. You can look younger and revitalized while eliminating lines and wrinkles. Botox can also lift, shape, and contour your features for a refreshed look.

What Is Botox?
Botox is the brand name for a purified form of botulinum toxin type A. When injected in small doses into specific muscles, Botox blocks the chemical signals that cause muscles to contract. When the muscles can’t tighten, the skin flattens and appears smoother and less wrinkled.
This FDA-approved treatment offers temporary help with:
- Moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows
- Lines and wrinkles in the forehead
- Other facial lines and wrinkles
- The lines that fan out from the corners of the eyes, known as “crow’s feet”
A thin needle is used to inject tiny amounts of Botox into specific muscles. By carefully choosing the muscles to treat, these injections only weaken the wrinkle-producing muscles to preserve your natural facial expressions.
The number of injections needed depends on many factors, including your facial features, the extent of the wrinkling, and the specific area being treated. For example, crow’s feet usually require two to five injections. Furrows in your forehead could take eight or more injections. Your healthcare provider will help you determine how much Botox is needed to achieve your desired results. You’ll notice results within a few days, but the full effect takes about two weeks. Results aren’t permanent, however. To maintain your look, you will need follow-up injections every two to four months.
