The first signs aging can often show up on our faces. And although they can be a sign of a life well lived, they can also make you look older than you feel. Repeated facial movements tend to create fine lines in the skin that become more permanent over time, known as dynamic wrinkles.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a product that works as a muscle relaxant, temporarily easing tension in your facial muscles so that these dynamic wrinkles can smooth away.*
Pacifica Medical Spa Camarillo offers BOTOX treatments for men and women interested in preventing dynamic wrinkles from forming or treating existing wrinkles. Our professional injectors work to deliver the best aesthetic results with the safest procedures.

What Is BOTOX?
BOTOX is an injectable product derived from botulinum toxin, a natural protein found in the body. When injected into specific areas of the face, this protein relaxes the underlying musculature by temporarily blocking the neuroreceptors that tell these muscles to contract. As a result, the fine lines that are caused by your facial muscles contracting should slowly fade away.
Your BOTOX Consultation
Before your first BOTOX treatment, you’ll have a consultation with one of our professional and experienced aesthetic nurses.
During this time, you can discuss your cosmetic goals and learn more about what to expect from BOTOX treatments. BOTOX is typically applied to the:
- Fine lines beside the eyes, known as crow’s feet
- Vertical lines between the brows, known as frown lines.
- Along the forehead and the jawline to decrease the appearance of prominent masseter muscles.
Your Aesthetic Nurse will also evaluate your facial structure and stage of aging to help you formulate an individualized treatment plan. Many people combine BOTOX treatments with JUVÉDERM to fill in deeper wrinkles and improve sagging tissue.
Your BOTOX Treatment
BOTOX is known as a “lunchtime treatment” because it can be performed in as short a time as 15 minutes, allowing you to easily fit this touch-up treatment into your busy schedule.
Before the injections, your Aesthetic Nurse will carefully examine and clean the areas on your face to be treated. The injections themselves are relatively painless, though you may feel a slight prick.
After your injections are complete, you can go about your day as usual.
Recovery & Results
Immediately following your BOTOX appointment, you may develop some minor pinkness, bruising or swelling in the injection sites. For the most part, this can be easily covered with makeup.
Your results should develop gradually over the coming days and week. You should notice a decrease in facial wrinkles and a more refreshed look. At our medical spa, we strive to deliver results that appear natural and effortless, never “frozen.”
