Botox in San Mateo

If you're interested in taking care of your frown lines with Botox, the San Mateo area office of Susan Lin, MD should be your first stop to see if that is the right choice. We answer all your questions and offer honest opinions on whether this treatment is right for you. While not a perfect choice for everyone, the procedure is quick, with minimal discomfort, and is excellent for the treatment of frown lines, crow's feet (wrinkles around the eyes), and forehead lines. With over fifteen years of experience practicing in the area, our office has built a solid reputation around the excellent care and satisfaction our patients get.

Aging skin and wrinkles can come from many different factors. While some of these unwanted lines can come from cellular changes, collagen depletion, hormone loss, or damage that is cause by free radicals, other lines can appear just from muscle contractions. Any time you concentrate, frown, squint, or make a funny face, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to fold and furrow. After years of this, wrinkles can linger even after the muscles stop contacting. Our treatment works by blocking nerve impulses to these muscles, which reduces muscle activity, resulting in fewer wrinkles forming above the eyes.

This temporary cosmetic procedure is done by prescription, and is a small injection into muscles that is used to improve the appearance of moderate to severe lines for people between 18 and 65 years of age. This process should always be done by a healthcare procedure, but is nonsurgical and requires no anesthesia to perform. The entire procedure takes approximately five minutes, and any discomfort is minimal and brief. Treatment results persist for three to four months on average. For younger people, this treatment can be preventative, rather than corrective.

So if you think you need a treatment of Botox, San Mateo located specialist Dr. Susan Lin, MD is ready to help. We make sure that our process has minimal discomfort and gives you natural- looking results that leave your skin looking its best. We have fifteen years' experience practicing in the Bay Area, and hundreds of satisfied patients can testify to the excellent work we do providing cosmetic medical procedures that are both safe and effective. We put your health above all else and are excited to see how we can help you. Contact us today and let us have your skin smooth and looking better than ever.

Botox FAQ

What is it?

BOTOX® Cosmetic, a therapeutic muscle-relaxing agent works at the nerve endings that lead to muscles. Normally your brain sends electrical messages to your muscles so that they can contract and move. The electrical message is transmitted by a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine. BOTOX® Cosmetic works at the nerve endings that cause the underlying muscle contraction and blocks the release of acetylcholine and, as a result, the contraction weakens or stops, creating a relaxation and tightening of the facial skin, which yields an improved cosmetic appearance.

Who is this for?

Unlike fillers and over-the-counter skin care creams, Botox treatment actually prevents the formation of wrinkles. That’s why women as early as their late 20’s are undergoing this treatment, so that they don’t develop lines. Botox® works by relaxing the muscles that contract to make wrinkles and lines. Once injected, the lines can no longer etch on that area of the face. Facial lines and wrinkles are often cosmetically displeasing and distressing to some individuals. Sometimes people are misinterpreted as being angry, sad, tired or anxious. BOTOX® Cosmetic can successfully reduce the signs of aging and help restore a more energetic and youthful appearance.

How does it work?

Treatment involves a few tiny injections - no anesthesia is required. The entire procedure takes approximately five minutes, and any discomfort is minimal and brief.
Treatment results persist for three to four months on average. BOTOX treatment can also be used to alleviate excessive sweating. More than 3.5 million procedures done with BOTOX Cosmetic in 2006.
