Botox®, or botulinum toxin, is used to smooth active lines, specifically the frown lines that form between your eyes when you scowl that are also referred to as “11’s.” It is also effective in erasing crows feet when you smile or furrows across your forehead when you lift your eyebrows.
Botox® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles as a simple, nonsurgical treatment. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines.
Static lines, the ones you see when you are not making any facial expression, are treated with fillers, not Botox®. Dr. Lowenstein is an experienced injector of Botox® and fillers. He can tell you what product or combination of products will work for you.
Conveniently located in Santa Barbara, Dr. Lowenstein commonly cares for many Botox patients from Santa Maria, Bakersfield, Ventura, and Thousand Oaks.
