Botox® Cosmetic


Mountain View Botox patients may anticipate beautifully refreshed-looking skin following their treatment. Dr. Pertsch frequently meets with individuals who are interested in rejuvenating their facial appearance with the help of Botox® Cosmetic. This facial injectable is the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure among both men and women in the United States.


Botox is designed to block muscle movement in specific areas of the face, which will prevent lines and wrinkles from forming, as well as temporarily eliminate those that already exist. The areas of the face that can dramatically benefit from Botox injections include the: forehead, frown lines, around the eyes (“crow’s feet”), upper lip (“smoker’s lines”), nasolabial folds (“laugh lines”), and neck muscle bands. Botox can also treat a condition known as “hyperhydrosis” (excessive sweating). Dr. Pertsch offers this facial injectable for both cosmetic reasons, as well as to help alleviate the stress and frustration that goes along with hyperhydrosis.


People who receive this treatment, such as San Mateo Botox patients, enjoy its convenience; although it depends on which areas of the face are to be treated, the approximate amount of time per session is 10 minutes. Patients may receive treatment in multiple regions during one visit. In order to create a safe, comfortable experience for the patient, Dr. Pertsch takes two precautionary methods; he uses a strong topical anesthetic on the patient’s skin prior to treatment (saves time because it allows greater ease for both him and the patient), as well as uses tiny needles that are changed out as necessary during treatment (to help avoid discomfort from using a dull needle).


To learn if Botox will provide you with your desired results, you may want to visit the office of Dr. Pertsch. During an initial consultation, he can assess your skin and determine if you are an ideal candidate for Botox.
