Plastic surgeon Dr. Juris Bunkis offers BOTOX® Cosmetic at Orange County Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, CA to improve the appearance of aged skin. Unlike dermal fillers such as, Belotero Balance® or Juvéderm®, BOTOX® is a wrinkle relaxer. This means that the underlying facial muscles are temporarily paralyzed once BOTOX® is injected.
The constant contraction of facial muscles (such as smiling) is what causes facial wrinkles. Therefore, the specific formula of BOTOX® prevents these facial expressions to limit muscle movement for a youthful appearance. BOTOX® is most commonly injected in the forehead. The results will leave you with a flattering and natural glow.
