Botox Treatment in Venice, CA

Botox is an FDA-approved injectable used for cosmetic and medical purposes.
Many people use Botox to minimize the appearance of facial fine lines and wrinkles caused by aging. Others use Botox to treat excessive sweating, chronic migraines, and other health conditions. 

Approved by the FDA in 1989, Botox was originally used to treat two specific eye muscle disorders. Nowadays, licensed medical professionals deliver Botox injections for numerous purposes, and True Jewel Medical Center is proud to offer this popular neurotoxin to our wide range of clients who live near Venice, CA.

How Does Botox Work?

Botox contains the botulinum toxin known as onabotulinumtoxinA. A neuromuscular

blocker, this toxin is derived from a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum type A. Believe it or not, this is the same toxin responsible for botulism, which causes food poisoning. Mayo Clinic reports that there’s no need to be alarmed by this toxin’s presence in the injectable; their article regarding Botox injections states, “The forms of purified botulinum toxin used by licensed health care providers meet medical control standards. These standards were approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. As a rule, the bacteria toxins used for medical purposes are not harmful if used correctly.”

When you hear Botox described as a “neurotoxin,” it’s because when injected into the targeted area, it blocks nerve signals and reduces muscle activity. This safe, targeted approach is called neuromodulation. Temporarily blocking the neurotransmitter called acetylcholine, which causes your muscles to contract, makes your wrinkles soften and your fine lines appear much smoother. Or, if you’re using Botox for medical reasons, the temporary paralysis of the problematic muscle forces it to stop contracting and provides much-needed relief.

American Society of Plastic Surgeons has uploaded a brief animation explaining the process of this neurotoxin injection, which you may find helpful. 

What Areas Can Botox Treat Cosmetically?

At True Jewel Medical Center, we are proud to help our clients from Venice, CA, and the

surrounding areas achieve a more youthful appearance, which can go a long way in reversing the visible effects of aging and boosting your confidence.

Botox is a fantastic way to quickly and effectively treat fine lines and wrinkles, including those that appear on your forehead, between your eyebrows (we call these “elevens”), on the outer corners of your eyes (crow’s feet), and around the outer corners of your mouth (laugh lines). Marionette lines, which are the vertical lines that extend from the corners of your mouth to your jawline, can also be addressed using Botox.

Botox remains a popular cosmetic injection because of its unique ability to provide visible and long-lasting results. Injections are easy and quick; little to no recovery time is required; side effects, if any, are temporary and usually mild.

What Medical Conditions Can Botox Treat?

Individuals diagnosed with certain medical conditions may be prescribed Botox

injections to help treat the condition or manage the symptoms. Since Botox reduces muscle activity, it can be used for chronic migraines, overactive bladder, hyperhidrosis, and cervical dystonia, just to name a few.

Individuals who suffer from chronic migraines can receive Botox injections in areas on their head and in their neck to reduce the frequency and severity of the migraines.

Botox injections are so versatile that they can even be injected into the bladder muscle. This injection can relax the bladder and improve bladder control.

In the case of hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), Botox injections can block the nerve signals that activate the sweat glands. According to UCLA Health, Botox injections for hyperhidrosis can last for up to six months.

Cervical dystonia is a condition characterized by involuntary neck muscle contractions. This makes the neck twist or move to one side. Symptoms of this painful condition can be reduced by routine Botox injections.

Interestingly, an article published in December 2021 by UC San Diego Health notes that Botox may even go so far as to reduce anxiety.

Botox has proven to be incredibly effective in the medical and cosmetic fields. This impressive and popular neurotoxin not only offers transformative cosmetic results but, from a medical standpoint, improves the overall quality of life for people who have been diagnosed with certain health conditions.

Who Can Get Botox?

Botox is typically recommended for individuals between the ages of 35 and 65 years old and who have had little to no success with other skincare treatments designed to target wrinkles and other signs of aging.

Botox should not be administered if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, allergic to cow’s milk protein, or have been diagnosed with skin allergies or skin conditions. Please be prepared to discuss your current health and medical history so our team at True Jewel Cosmetic Center can be made aware of any medications or supplements you are taking as well as previous procedures you have undergone.

Our exemplary medical aesthetics staff can determine if you’re a good candidate for the neurotoxin known as Botox. If you are, we can give you more helpful insights and information about the injections offered in our office near Venice, CA. It will be our pleasure to help you achieve the aesthetic outcome you desire in a warm and welcoming environment.
