Botox and Gel Fillers San Diego
Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the country and at West Coast Lipo. BOTOX is the first and only FDA-approved fine line and wrinkle treatment temporarily improving or eliminating muscular lines including moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, moderate to severe crows feet, and forehead creases. With a well-established safety record, Botox has been approved by the FDA for use in cosmetic treatments.
BOTOX injections is a safe, simple, non-invasive treatment that can be done during a lunch hour with virtually no downtime with dramatic results! Made out of botulinum toxin Type A, a naturally occurring protein, relaxes the targeted muscles, and because these muscles do not contract, the skin stays smooth, creating a younger-looking, more relaxed face. Treatment consists of a series of gentle, tiny injections into the targeted facial muscles. The non-invasive treatment usually takes less than 30 minutes, with no need for anesthesia or medication. Results will last four to six months.
Temporary bruising, swelling and minor pain are the most common side effects. A very small percentage of patients may develop eyelid drooping, which usually resolves in about 2-3 weeks.*
What should I expect?
Botox is a very popular treatment because it is relatively inexpensive and requires no recovery time. Injections are performed with a tiny needle and no anesthesia is required. Each treatment can take as little as 10 minutes and our San Diego Botox patients can usually return to work within the same day. Patients typically notice a reduction in wrinkles within a few days, and full effects are seen within 1-2 weeks.

What will happen to my frown lines or other wrinkles if I choose not to continue treatments?
If you do not continue treatments, your frown lines and wrinkles will gradually begin to look like they did before treatment.*
Aging is natural — at West Coast Lipo & Medspa, anti-aging is too
In addition to the surgical treatments and Botox available at our office, non-invasive options are extremely popular.
Dermal fillers are substances that are injected just below the surface of the skin to fill in lines, wrinkles, and scars. The purpose of fillers is to add volume to areas of the face for a more natural, youthful appearance. The most common areas treated are the smile lines around the nose and mouth, fine lines above the mouth, the cheeks, frown lines between the eyes, and acne scars. Fillers can also increase the fullness of the lips and lessen the downward slant of the corner of lips. There are several different types of fillers.*
We offer the following options for facial fillers:
Restylane® is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid, helping to instantly, visibly reduce moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds or add fullness to your lips and results can last 8-10 months.

Radiesse® is a non-surgical facial contouring filler that delivers an immediate and long-lasting result. Used to restore and reshape obvious signs of facial aging, Radiesse® remains soft and pliable and takes on characteristics of surrounding tissue.
Radiesse® is made of very tiny, smooth, calcium-based microspheres that are suspended in a natural gel that is injected into the skin through a simple, safe and minimally invasive procedure. The microspheres (particles) form a scaffold through which your body’s own collagen grows. This unique composition provides immediate visual improvement common with other fillers, along with the benefit of long-lasting results. For the first three months after injection, Radiesse® initially performs as a filler substance by plumping up the skin. Then due to its collagen-generating properties, Radiesse® actually stimulates new tissue development for extended correction for up to 12 to 24 months. *

BELOTERO BALANCE® is a prescription injection that is approved to temporarily smooth out and fill in moderate-to-severe nasolabial folds (the folds or wrinkles that go from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth). Treatments can last 8-10 months. For more information on Bolotero please go to http://www.belotero.com
