BOTOX Ideal Candidates
To help turn back the hands of time, as well as prevent lines and wrinkles from forming on the upper section of the face, San Diego Cosmetic Clinic in San Diego, CA is pleased to offer BOTOX treatments to women and men seeking a fresh, youthful enhancement to their complexion. This nonsurgical service provides gorgeous results and is extremely popular among both women and men alike. This injectable product can reduce the presence of dynamic lines and wrinkles throughout the forehead. These dynamic folds form when the muscles of the upper face contract to create expressions. Wrinkles and lines can dissipate when the face is relaxed, but dynamic lines that have emerged over time may still remain. BOTOX is a filtered strain of type A botulinum toxin that temporarily freezes the movements of the muscle. To correct these static lines, BOTOX is carefully injected to soften the skin. BOTOX is most commonly administered by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Steve Laverson between the brows, around the eyes (Crow's feet), and along the forehead.
ALTERNATIVES TO BOTOX
In addition to BOTOX, San Diego Cosmetic Clinic also offers patients wrinkle relaxer injectable treatments with Dysport and Xeomin. Like BOTOX, both of these formulas freeze the muscles that create dynamic lines and folds throughout the face. While BOTOX is best used for forehead lines, Dysport and Xeomin are better suited to treat frown lines between the brows that create the appearance of the number "11." Depending on your unique needs, concerns, and budget, Dr. Laverson will recommend the product that will produce the most effective results for your situation. If you'd like to learn more about Dysport and Xeomin, as well as the differences between all of our wrinkle relaxer injectables, contact our San Diego, CA office.

"I must start by saying that I very rarely write reviews. But I recently recalled my experience with Dr. Laverson, and felt compelled to leave a long-overdue review that he truly earned. My situation was also quite different from most of his typical work, so I hope this also attests to his wide-ranging surgical skill. A couple of years ago I was involved in a bad motorcycle accident and wound up at Palomar Hospital. According to my family, doctors, and nurses, my face was pretty much smashed to bits and looked extremely gruesome. Some parts of my face were even missing. Anyway, Dr. Laverson was the on-call plastic surgeon that night. Once the E.R. doctors had gotten me stable, he had the impossible task of trying to fix my Freddy Krueger face by looking at an old picture of me on my fiance’s cell phone. Or at least it should’ve been impossible based on how bad my condition was...Fast forward a day or two, after my swelling from the surgery had gone down in order to see the results, my family and some coworkers came in to see. NONE of them could tell a difference from before the accident, including the coworkers who hadn’t seen my smashed face. Somehow, some way, Dr. Laverson was able to use plates, grafts, and whatever other tools and tricks in his brilliant surgical mind to make me look IDENTICAL to how I looked before splattering multiple pieces of my face on the side of a road. Shortly after my family, friends, and coworkers visited, Dr. Laverson himself visited as well to observe the post-swelling results, see how I was feeling, and to follow up on all the medical stuff he knew to look out for. He even asked my family and I if there was anything out of place, or changes we’d like to make, since he was happy to do another surgery to get everything exactly right. Because everything was already perfect I didn’t do another surgery, but his offer, his following up with me, and his sincere concern for my well being was absolutely amazing.There is only one last detail I want to mention, but it speaks volumes for Dr. Laverson’s outstanding character and genuine desire to help people feel beautiful and be happy with their looks. Since this was in the emergency room at the hospital, not only was it different than his usual surgeries by its type and difficulty, but the emergency was also paid for by my medical insurance. In the medical profession, this often means a significant pay-cut for the doctor from what they would normally charge. I don’t know if my surgery wound up being one of those times for Dr. Laverson, but I do know that he did a spectacular job given my horrendous condition, all while cancelling his Friday evening plans, and likely earning less than usual as well. I hope this review helps prove to potential customers that Dr. Laverson is a caring and outstandingly skilled surgeon, and to put anyone’s mind at ease that may be nervous or unsure about plastic surgery. And lastly, Dr. Laverson, I want to personally thank you for everything outlined above. I know there is no way I can ever really reciprocate what you did for me, but I hope this review can at least help show people and spread the word that you are an absolutely amazing person and professional."- D.S. / Google / Jun 11, 2019
"Dr. Laverson is incredibly thorough and passionate about his work. He answered all of my questions prior to my breast augmentation and tummy tuck. Following my procedure, Dr. Laverson went above and beyond during my follow up appointment to ensure I get the best results. Office staff is very welcoming, and they even called to check up on me after my procedure. I feel like a new woman, and I’m more confident than I have ever been. I recommend Feel Beautiful to anyone considering having an aesthetic procedure."- J.C. / Google / Mar 17, 2019

Just Express Yourself
BOTOX injections are ideal for patients who want to smooth the visible look of dynamic lines throughout their upper face with nonsurgical and less invasive methods. This product also can be used as a preventive anti-aging treatment for those who are younger to reduce their likelihood of developing lines and folds. BOTOX is a great noninvasive approach if you have forehead wrinkles or noticeable furrows between the brows. It also can be an effective solution for lines that form around the eyes, called Crow's feet. However, if you have deeper and more severe lines, an injectable filler (like Radiesse or Juvéderm) may be suggested instead. For those who are over the age of 50 with severe wrinkles who desire a more dramatic result, you could be considered for facelift surgery. This delivers a more impactful result and it is more long-term. San Diego Cosmetic Clinic offers facelifts, brow lifts, and eyelid surgeries as effective and lasting options for patients seeking a fresh and rejuvenated appearance.
BOTOX injections are performed in a quick session at our office, San Diego Cosmetic Clinic. We may perform the treatment on the same day as your initial consultation with Dr. Laverson, depending on our availability and schedule. You will be asked to make various expressions using your upper face, like frowning, squinting, smiling, etc., to help us to mark where the injections should be placed. The face will be prepared and BOTOX will be injected through a fine needle, followed with a cool compress to help decrease swelling and bruising. You can ask for a numbing cream to help make the procedure more comfortable, but this is usually not necessary. BOTOX treatments typically take around 10 – 15 minutes, and you may return to your usual activities almost right away.
What to Expect with BOTOX®
Following your BOTOX session, you will be able to resume your normal activities, but any strenuous exercise and activity should be ceased for a minimum of 24 hours. You will be advised to sleep upright for at least one night and avoid touching your face, which could accidentally spread the BOTOX to other areas. The injected sections of your face can be slightly bruised, red, or swollen for a few days, but you should not experience any severe or lasting side effects. In most cases, it takes around one week before your final results are visible. Your youthful outcomes will typically last 3 – 4 months, depending on how slowly your body breaks up the formula. You can talk to your BOTOX injector about the right time to schedule touch-up appointments at San Diego Cosmetic Clinic to maintain your results.
