Few treatments have revolutionized cosmetic and anti-aging medicine as much as Botox. At Skin Works Medical Spa in Torrance, we specialize in premium Botox injections that provide natural-looking, youthful results. Our injectors have mastered the art of Botox and can achieve your desired results.
Botox is a prescription injection made from a neurotoxin from the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. While Botox is best known for its ability to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles, it can also help with an eyebrow lift, masseter reduction, and excessive sweating.
Botox can also reduce headaches or create a fuller lip appearance with a flip! The applications are countless!
We ensure our clients receive the highest quality product by sourcing our Botox exclusively from Allergan. We store it by the highest standards in the medical community to maintain its effectiveness. This allows us to provide safe and effective Botox injections for a forehead or an eyebrow lift.
Our team, with over 20 years of experience, offers artistic injection techniques for patients of different ages, genders, and skin tones. Our injections are quick, easy, and always with minimal discomfort.
The cost of Botox can vary depending on factors such as the quantity of Botox units and the practitioner’s experience. The price also depends on the treatment area and your beauty goals. Therefore, avoiding low-priced or shady clinics and products is crucial, as they may use counterfeit, expired, or unqualified injectors, which can damage your skin and overall health.
Skin Works provides you with the highest care and satisfaction. This is why in 2023, we put a price freeze on all of our injectable treatments, including Botox, ensuring our prices remain affordable and accessible. Please scroll down to see our prices and the latest promotions.
Botox® works by inhibiting the signals from nerves to muscles. When we inject Botox into muscle tissue, it prevents the muscle from contracting, resulting in softened wrinkles. Applying Botox around the eyes or eyebrows reduces muscle movement and creates a smoother, more youthful appearance. Furthermore, using Botox on the forehead can decrease oil production and improve skin clarity.
Wrinkles can form for various reasons, such as sun exposure, loss of collagen as you age, and cellular changes. Wrinkles can also result from frequent facial movements like frowning or squinting. Over time, these movements cause the skin to crease and fold. Botox® is an effective solution that works beneath the skin’s surface to target the underlying muscle activity that causes wrinkles and frown lines. However, Botox does not prevent aging!
Due to excessive facial movements, the skin cannot repair itself over time. However, Botox® can provide a window of opportunity for the skin to improve without muscle movement stress during the 3-6 months it remains in the system. In addition, the procedure has minimal downtime, allowing patients to apply makeup soon after the injection. To ensure optimal results, avoid getting a massage, lying down in the treatment area, consuming alcohol, or exercising on the same day as the treatment.
Preventive Botox is using Botox injections before wrinkles, fine lines, and signs of aging are visible to prevent them from forming. In recent years, particularly among individuals under 30, it has become a trend to maintain a youthful appearance and slow aging. We recommend a consultation before opting for treatment if you have such concerns.
Look no further; you’ve discovered the ideal place for Botox treatments! We take pride in our expertise and are confident in delivering exceptional results. Discover our seamless 3-step process:
The first step is to schedule a consultation with us. During this time, we will take the time to fully understand your concerns and provide you with all of your options. We will also give you a transparent cost breakdown, applicable promotions, recovery time, and necessary follow-up appointments.
Our initial treatment approach is conservative, starting with a low dosage for the target areas. Our pain-free technique typically lasts between 15-20 minutes. Results can be seen within 3-10 days following the treatment. However, you must wait 10-14 days for the best results.
For first-time Botox® patients, we schedule a follow-up appointment two weeks after the treatment for a check-in. However, this step is unnecessary for regular patients, and we schedule follow-up appointments every three to four months. As always, all follow-up appointments at Skin Works are complimentary.
Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are all injectable neuromodulators that temporarily relax the muscles that cause wrinkles. They all work by blocking the signals from the nerves to the muscles, which relaxes the muscles and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. If you want to learn about the differences, head over to our blog section.
Botox is the most well-known of the three and has been used for cosmetic purposes since 2002. Allergan makes it, and people swear by it!
Dysport is made by Galderma and was approved for cosmetic use in the US in 2009. It is considered a more “spreadable” formula, meaning it can be injected into a larger area with fewer injections.
Xeomin is a newer product that was approved for cosmetic use in 2011. Merz Aesthetics makes it. Xeomin has no additives, which means there is less of a chance of having an allergic reaction than the other two products.
All three of these products are very similar, and it is hard to say which one is “better” as it depends on the individual patient and their specific needs. When you visit us for a consultation, we will examine your skin, listen to your goals, and inform you about your best options.
