What Is BOTOX
and How Does It Work?

BOTOX® Cosmetic, commonly referred to simply as "BOTOX," is an injectable treatment made up of botulinum toxin. Once injected, this protein relaxes the muscles to smooth wrinkles and prevent them from forming. It even prevents muscles from contracting involuntarily, allowing you to enjoy a softer, more youthful appearance in about a week. Botulinum toxin can be used to treat:

  • Crow's feet
  • Forehead lines
  • Frown lines
  • Laugh lines
  • Drooping eyebrows

Qualifying for BOTOX

Your candidacy for treatment will be determined during a consultation with Dr. Baugh. During this consultation, he will inquire about your concerns, discuss your medical history, and examine your face. Before you can receive BOTOX from our Fullerton, CA, office serving Orange County and beyond, you must:

Be In Good Overall Health

Patients must be healthy enough to undergo treatment and not have certain medical conditions (like a neurological disease) that could cause complications. Additionally, patients must not be pregnant, breastfeeding, or allergic to cow's milk protein.

Have Realistic Expectations

Though BOTOX can help you smooth facial lines and wrinkles, the results you can achieve are less dramatic than plastic surgery. We ask that patients have a clear understanding of what BOTOX can accomplish before their appointments.

Understand the Risks

BOTOX can come with some risks, like headache, eye dryness, and drooping eyelids. Though temporary, these symptoms can be uncomfortable. When you choose a board-certified dermatologist like Dr. Baugh, your likelihood of encountering uncomfortable symptoms is lower.

If you're approved for BOTOX injections, you can schedule your appointment.

"Board-certified Dr. Baugh can provide you with safe and effective botulinum toxin injections that take years off your appearance."
"Board-certified Dr. Baugh can provide you with safe and effective botulinum toxin injections that take years off your appearance."

Mapping Injection Sites

William Baugh, MD, will thoroughly examine your face and map out precise points for BOTOX Cosmetic injections. He will place them in a way that will enhance your appearance with the most conservative treatment.

Injecting Botulinum Toxin

Our doctor will gently inject a small amount of BOTOX into the chosen injection sites. This step will result in minimal discomfort that most patients equate to the sensation of a bug bite.

Return to Your Day

BOTOX Cosmetic injections require no recovery time, so you're free to continue with your day as usual.

Side Effects After Treatment

When administered by an experienced doctor like William Baugh, MD, BOTOX is considered a safe treatment; however, patients may experience side effects like:

  • Pain
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Mild bruising
  • Drooping eyelid
  • Drooping eyebrow

Fortunately, these side effects are temporary. Many can be managed with over-the-counter medication or concealed with makeup.

Maintaining Your Appearance After BOTOX Treatment

The results of BOTOX injections typically last for three to four months. Some simple things you can do to prolong your results and maintain a youthful appearance in the long-term include:

Wear Sunscreen

Sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher will protect your skin from the sun and slow the aging process. Regular use can help prevent wrinkles, melasma, and elasticity loss.

Use Retinol

Retinol products exfoliate the skin and improve collagen production. They can be incorporated into anyone's skincare routine to slow the signs of aging.

Attend Touch-Up Sessions

Many patients find it useful to visit Full Spectrum Dermatology two to three times a year for touch-up injections that maintain their results. Consistently receiving BOTOX Cosmetic injections can encourage longer-lasting benefits.

Consider Fillers

Our Fullerton, CA, office also offers dermal fillers for patients who want more well-rounded treatment. Fillers can add youthful plumpness to areas of the face that have lost volume due to the aging process.

Other Uses for BOTOX

BOTOX can also be used to treat certain medical conditions, such as:

  • Hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating)
  • Migraine headaches
  • Muscle spasms
  • Overactive bladder

Though our Fullerton, CA, office doesn't treat overactive bladder, migraine headaches, and other medical conditions, we can use BOTOX to treat hyperhidrosis. If you want to control excessive sweating, request a consultation with Dr. Baugh.

Understanding the Differences Between BOTOX and Dysport

BOTOX and Dysport® are both botulinum toxin injections, but they do have some key differences. Whereas Dysport is typically only used to treat moderate to severe glabellar lines, BOTOX is approved to do much more. Our Fullerton, CA, office likes the versatility of BOTOX, so it's our botulinum toxin of choice.
