Botox® Cosmetic in
Botox Newport: 949.645.6200
As we age the skin around our eyes and forehead can develop deep lines and
wrinkles. These can give an appearance of looking tired, stressed out and old.
These wrinkles and lines can be significantly reduced by Botox Cosmetic, a muscle relaxing agent
that is injected with a very fine needle. Dr. Reichner was one of the first
physicians in Orange County and Newport Beach to provide Botox Cosmetic.
The Botox treatments are safe and practically painless when performed by a experienced plastic surgeon.
Dr Reichner’s precise technique allows him to not only to smooth any lines or wrinkles,
but also to manipulate certain muscles, resulting in less wrinkles, a prettier eyebrow arch or
even a “Botox” brow lift!
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple, non-surgical, physician-administered treatment
that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in
people from 18 to 65 years of age. Dr. Reichner uses Botox in Newport Beach and Orange County
as a first step in facial rejuvenation - avoiding more invasive surgery. It is the only treatment of its type approved
by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The lines that appear between your brows (glabellar lines) actually result from
muscle movement and the passage of time. You may have heard the expression "wearing
your emotions on your sleeve," but in reality you wear them on your face. If you're
angry or annoyed, for example, you knit your brows together. Underneath your skin, your
facial muscles contract, cause a pleating of the overlying skin, and then, as anyone can
see, you're frowning.
After years of crinkling and wrinkling, those glabellar lines start to linger longer
and can become more pronounced. For women, whose faces tend to be more animated than men's,
and whose skin is typically more delicate, these lines may appear exaggerated and more permanent.
Fortunately, there is a way to reduce moderate to severe glabellar lines. Treatment
with BOTOX® Cosmetic can visibly smooth and soften moderate to severe frown lines
between your brows. An improvement can be seen within days and may last up to 4 months,
although results may vary. In clinical trials, nearly 90% of men and women surveyed rated
the improvement in the appearance of frown lines between their brows as moderate to better
1 month after treatment.
