What Is Botox
Botox is a neuromodulator therapy designed to reduce facial expression lines and is the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment for wrinkle removal, or wrinkle relaxation. Botox in San Ramon can relax your wrinkles so your skin can look and feel tight and youthful again.
This approach is most appropriate for deeper “dynamic” lines and wrinkles and is less effective for fine textural lines, present at rest. The fine textural lines can be reduced with combinations of HydraFacial, Microneedling, RF Microneedling, and regular application of skin care creams. Of course, adequate hydration and high quality sunscreen are always a must.
Demi Sato and her team really cares about skin health and is really wonderful to work with. After multiple pregnancies and stress at work, I just started to age pretty fast in my 40s with the dark spots, wrinkles and looser skin. Blossom put together a 6 month treatment plan for me that included, microneedling, Botox on my forehead and crows feet, HydraFacial and ZO skin cream for daily maintenance. I’m in month 3 now and my darks spots are fading with micro-needling and the Botox helped tighten my skin. Keeping light on the Botox as it’s my first time with that kind of stuff. I love how my skin feels now and brings me more confidence!

We use only FDA-approved BOTOX® Cosmetic shipped from Allergan to treat our clients. Since this product has 28 years of expertise, is approved in 97 countries, and has been featured almost 3,700 times in scientific and medical journals, it is proven safe, and we are proud to offer this treatment.
There are more than 6 million Botox treatments administered every year. Botox treats not only wrinkles and facial creases but is also used to treat hyperhidrosis, which is excessive sweating in certain body areas.
Excessive sweating can significantly affect quality of life; what you can wear is limited, you have to care for sweat marks all of the time, and it can be embarrassing. Botox utilizes botulinum toxin to block the nerve signals responsible for sweating and to stop the sweat glands from producing too much sweat. Treatment is typically needed every four to six months, as the nerves regenerate.
What does it do?
Botox can be used to treat a number of types of wrinkles on the face, including lipstick lines around the lips, horizontal forehead wrinkles, vertical frown lines, cheek wrinkles, crow’s feet around the eyes, chin wrinkles, and bunny lines. This injectable treatment can also relax vertical platysmal neck bands, soften an overly masculine jaw and jawline, treat hyperhidrosis in areas like the armpits, and resolve migraine headaches. For moderate and deep wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, loss of cheek and undereye volume, and acne scars, dermal fillers are a more effective option than Botox. We offer a number of dermal fillers.
How does it work?
Certain chemical signals from neurons that drive muscles to contract are blocked by botox injections. These injections are most frequently used to relax the facial muscles responsible for wrinkles and frown lines on the face. With right amount of dosage, you can achieve natural result. Able to make facial expressions but with no lines. We do not want to undertreat or over treat you.

Before and After The Treatment
How long does it take?
Treatment length varies by client but the average is approximately 15 to 30 minutes. Area of treatment and how many units are required will determine session length. Discussions between client and treatment provider are essential in determining how best to enhance your natural beauty, or treat any issues you may have. Based on these discussions, client and provider will establish an agreed upon course of treatment and set expectations. Our goal is to support your confidence both on the inside and out.
Is it painful?
Pain tolerance levels vary by client, but most say this treatment feels like a minor pinch to the skin. Topical numbing cream is available when needed, but is seldom required.
How much botox units do I need?
It can vary depending on client.
Excessive Sweating Treatment
Botox is a Neuromodulator therapy, which is the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment for wrinkle removal or wrinkle relaxation designed to reduce facial expression lines. But did you know that Botox is also used to treat hyperhidrosis, which is excessive sweating in body areas like the underarms?
Excessive sweating can significantly affect quality of life. What you can wear is limited, you have to care for sweat marks all of the time and it can be embarrassing. Botox utilizes botulinum toxin to block the nerve signals responsible for sweating and to prevent the sweat glands from producing too much sweat. Treatment is typically needed every 4 to 6 months, as the nerves regenerate.
When can I see the results?
You may see results over the days following treatment, approximately 3-5 days, but full effect take up to 14 days. For the best idea of how your results can look, view Botox before and after photos in our gallery.
How often does Botox need to be treated?
We do not want to undertreat or overtreat you. For initial procedure we will be very conservative, we recommend 2 weeks follow up appointment, if you would like to add more units or have any questions we can answer you.
Results typically last for 3 to 6 months and in some cases may last longer. To maintain results, we recommend getting smaller touch-ups so we can repair or delay the onset of your natural wrinkles. Come back when you feel like you need it.
How long does it last?
Results typically last for 3 to 6 months and in some cases may last longer. To maintain results, we recommend getting smaller touch-ups so we can repair or delay the onset of your natural wrinkles. If you are getting Botox, a 2-3 week follow up is highly recommended so that we can assess treatment results and provide additional support if needed. For clients that get Botox regularly, units required may begin to decrease and the results begin to last longer.
No recovery or downtime is needed after treatment. Do not touch, rub or manipulate treated area for 2 to 4 hours after the injection. During this time, you should remain in an upright position (no laying down). You should actively contract the treated muscles to increase the efficacy for 1 hour following the treatment.
Avoid vigorous activity or exercise. Avoid facial or chemical peel for 7 to 14 days. Apply sunscreen and avoid direct sun.
How Much Does It Cost?
