What is BOTOX?

BOTOX is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines and wrinkles. BOTOX has been used by celebrities as a cosmetic treatment to help them look younger and more vibrant. Scientifically speaking, BOTOX is a neurotoxin from Clostridium botulinum, which is an organism found in our natural earth environment. BOTOX, as a result, blocks the chemical signals from the nerves that cause your muscles to contract. Furthermore, BOTOX reduces your fine lines and wrinkles by paralyzing the underlying muscles and smoothing out the skin.

BOTOX has been used by celebrities as a cosmetic treatment to help them look younger and more vibrant. Throughout our lives, the constant use of our facial muscles creates facial expressions, as a result, these expressions result in lines and wrinkles all around our skin. Patients who seek BOTOX are looking to smooth lines and wrinkles we all commonly recognize. How BOTOX works is that it achieves results by temporarily immobilizing the muscles beneath our skin folds and reduces wrinkles.

What can I expect from the BOTOX procedure in Livermore?

Before your BOTOX treatment, the area that will be treated will be cleaned. Your physician will determine the placement of each injection based on the size and depth of the crease or wrinkle being treated. Several injections to a specific area may be required to effectively treat the area.

This procedure requires no anesthesia or sedation. It can take between 10-15 minutes to perform with minimal discomfort, varying based on the number of areas being treated and the size. You will be able to discuss with your doctor if you want to treat a single area or more than one when you go in for treatment.

BOTOX: The Gold Standard

BOTOX is by far the most popular of all neuromodulators on the market, and for good reason. BOTOX is a one-of-a-kind formula, with no other anti-aging injectable exactly like it. BOTOX provides very consistent results, no surprises, and has been relied upon by millions of people around the world for almost a decade. It is FDA-approved to smooth away lines and wrinkles on the forehead, crow’s feet, and between the brows – three of the biggest areas of concern for both men and women.

If you have deep frown lines between your brows, horizontal lines etched into your forehead, or crow’s feet, BOTOX injections make it possible for you to look years younger without undergoing invasive surgery. At SculptMD, we see more and more young people undergoing BOTOX injections to help ward off the development of wrinkles, lines, and creases for years longer than nature intended.

Stay looking younger, longer.

Are you in your mid-thirties, (or even younger) and beginning to see the signs of age appear? Why not maintain youthful, fresh, unlined skin for longer? We offer BOTOX injections to clients of all ages, along with advanced skincare treatments and products. Our goal is to help you look your best for the long term.

Our approach to BOTOX injections: The SculptMD Difference

At SculptMD, our approach is different. If you are undergoing BOTOX injections for the first time, we want to act conservatively, as every individual patient is different. Once we see exactly how your muscles and nerves react to the injections, we can increase the number or quantity of the product injected. We are known for our ability to create an exceptionally natural result with BOTOX injections, and you can trust us to be meticulous in performing every treatment – whether it’s the first time, or if you are one of our loyal clients.

Your individualized treatment plan will be tailored to your face, your goals, and your budget.

Visible neck bands

Crow’s feet (outer eye wrinkles)

Other Uses for BOTOX

BOTOX is far more than a wrinkle treatment. Those looking to create a slimmer, sleeker facial structure will find BOTOX injections to be an effective way to reshape a heavy jawline. Strategic injections of BOTOX around the chin, jaw, and cheek bones can create a slimmer, more aesthetic facial look, with minimal discomfort or recovery time. This treatment can be a long-term solution and highlight your best features by slimming and sculpting the jawline to reshape a heavy, large or squarish jaw and create a more aesthetic overall balance.


Those suffering with TMJ have found relief in BOTOX. Injections into the muscles of the jaw and face have produced consistently positive results for many patients. These injections relax the muscles that create many of the issues associated with TMJ, alleviating tension and pain. This helps protect your teeth, minimize ringing in the ears, and reduce the inflammation that consistent tension causes over time.

Before & After

Am I a good candidate?

If you’re wondering if you’re too young or too old, there is no age limit for BOTOX. If you have the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your forehead, around the eyes, around the lips, on the sides of the nose, on your chin, or any other facial location, you are most likely a candidate for BOTOX.

You should consult Sculpt MD to see if BOTOX is right for you. We have a free consultation to allow you to talk with our doctor about your concerns and how we can help you!

What does recovery entail?

Initially, you may experience a slight redness or temporary swelling after your procedure. This tends to fade within 24 hours, but you will not be inhibited from resuming your normal daily activities. It is important to not rub or massage the areas that were treated as it may cause the substance to migrate elsewhere.

Some may experience a mild bruising in the treated area, mostly those who bruise easily. You can also prevent bruising by avoiding Aspirin, Ibuprofen, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications prior to your treatment.

What will my results be like?

It can take between 7 to 10 days to see the results, while about 3 days post-treatment you can see improvements in the appearance of any fine lines or wrinkles. By targeting specific areas, lines and wrinkles can be eradicated for 3-4 months without interfering with normal facial function. To maintain your results, it is important to keep up with regularly scheduled appointments. Most patients return for touch ups as they start to see fine lines forming again.

Is BOTOX safe?

BOTOX injections should only be done by a medical professional. Here at Sculpt MD, we offer you a highly-skilled, board certified internal medicine staff to perform your BOTOX procedure. We take all the necessary steps and precautions in order to yield the best and rewarding results.

How many times can you have BOTOX?

As soon as your wrinkles return, you can have BOTOX again. There is no limit to the number of injections you can have; however, the body’s immune system is capable of developing antibodies to the BOTOX molecule, which can make it ineffective. We all are familiar with celebrities that have gotten “too much” BOTOX, but rest assured at Sculpt MD we will not let you overdo it. We keep a healthy amount of treatments tailored to your lifestyle.

What are the side effects of BOTOX?

Some of the minor side effects that fade within a day or so are slight redness in the treated area or temporary swelling. You can experience bruising if you easily bruise, but this can be helped by avoiding any anti-inflammatory medications, such as Advil.

A very small percentage of patients may develop a droopy upper eyelid with the treatment of the forehead/brow area, but it will resolve within a few weeks. This is usually a result of the BOTOX migrating down towards the eye. To prevent this, it is important to see a highly experienced doctor and not rub the area of treatment for at least 12 hours after your procedure. At Sculpt MD, we can guarantee a trained physician, but only you can prevent it further by avoiding rubbing.

Is BOTOX painful?

The actual BOTOX as a medication is not painful, but rather the only pain you may experience is the needle. This is just a mild pricking as it is not a large needle. Applying an icepack to numb the area can help numb the discomfort. The entire procedure only lasts 10-15 minutes.

Will BOTOX results last?

When injected properly by a physician at Sculpt MD, the results can be seen in 2 to 4 days. The maximum results will be seen 7 to 10 days after your treatment and your results typically last 3 to 4 months.
