Facial Sculpting consists of the precise use of Botox® Cosmetic and like products to relax muscles, as well as Dermal Fillers such as Radiesse®, Belotero®, and Juvederm® to restore lost volume in the face. This is done with the technical skills and knowledge of injecting, along with the artistic ability of an aesthetically trained eye to create a more youthful appearance.
What Is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
Botox® Cosmetic is a safe, fast, and effective way to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by facial expressions on the forehead and around the eyes and lips. Botox Cosmetic®, Dysport®, Xeomin®, and Jeuveaux® are an FDA-approved, highly purified protein that is produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum.
- By blocking the nerve impulses to the tiny facial muscles that cause the facial expression lines and wrinkles, this protein prevents their contraction and relaxes them.
- By reversing the dynamic wrinkles such as crow’s feet, frown lines, worry lines, laugh lines, and neck bands, neurotoxins reverse the visible signs of aging. Depending on the individual, the results can be visualized within 5-10 days after treatment, it peaks in 2-4 weeks and will last for 3-6 months.
- The length of the treatment session is usually 15-30 minutes.
- There is no recovery period and patients should not experience any “down-time.” Neurotoxins are not a replacement for fillers such as Restylane®, Belotero®, Juvederm®, or Radiesse® in the treatment of deep static wrinkles. The two products are complementary and their simultaneous use results in a more smooth, relaxed, and younger appearance.

How Do Botulinum Toxin Injections Work?
The special compound found in BOTOX® Cosmetic works by disrupting the nerve signaling processes that cause muscle movement. Unlike dermal fillers that enhance facial volume, neurotoxins work by paralyzing your muscles and preventing them from causing added strain to your skin. The effects of this paralysis last from 3-6 months but cause no negative side effects when administered by experienced professionals such as those that make up our Refresh Med Spa LA team.
Addressing Hyperhydrosis with Injections
Hyperhydrosis (Excessive sweating) is a condition which in certain individuals can cause a very uncomfortable and possibly embarrassing situation where it may be difficult to control sweating using typical antiperspirants and powders. These are typically seen in the axillae (underarms) as well as the palms. Neurotoxins such as Botox Cosmetic® can be used to reduce the amount of sweat produced by blocking the ability of the sweat gland from squeezing out its contents.
