Foster City residents are often concerned about their aging skin. They may have heard about “Botox,” but be unclear about how it works. Who wants to drive all the way into San Francisco to learn more? Well, not us. But right here in Foster City, you can explore whether Botox in Foster City (or some equivalent) is right for you. Close by.
From the cosmetic point of view, Botox in Foster City is often used to clear or reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles – mainly frown lines, crow’s feet, and other forehead wrinkles. It is the first product that is FDA approved for such use. Botox injections block certain chemical signals from nerves, mostly signals that cause muscles to contract. This has the effect of relaxing those muscles, thus removing the frown lines.
Botox was the first product to use botulinum toxin, although some other drugs do so as well now, including Dysport, Myobloc, and Xeomin. Each of these is a little different, in particular when it comes to the amount of dosage, so they cannot be used interchangeably.
Botox can also be used to treat certain conditions such as an overactive bladder, neck spasms, excessive sweating, eye twitching, chronic migraine, and lazy eye.

However, it may be that there is a superior way to solve your facial issues, and this could be done using a form of laser treatment instead. There are a number of different ways which are approved by the FDA for skin tightening. Generally, these are procedures which work by delivering heat to specific points in the deeper layers of the skin. This has the effect of stimulating the production of collagen and elastin and will gradually improve the tone and texture of the skin. Some procedures can also help to smooth out cellulite.
