BOTOX® Cosmetic helps San Jose and Palo Alto residents reduce wrinkles without the time or expense of surgery. This FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment is made from a purified protein and works by relaxing the muscles that contract to cause certain types of wrinkles on the forehead and around the eye area.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Daryl K. Hoffman has many years of experience working with BOTOX Cosmetic and knows how to make the most of this treatment.

Palo Alto and San Jose BOTOX patients who choose Dr. Hoffman can have their treatment performed right in his office. With a very fine needle, BOTOX is injected into the facial muscles that are causing unwanted wrinkles. Common treatment areas include lines between the eyebrows, vertical lines on the forehead, and "crow's feet" on the outsides of the eyes. During treatment, most patients experience only a slight sting that is similar to an insect bite.
Recovery and Results
One of the benefits of BOTOX Cosmetic is that you may resume your normal activities immediately after treatment, although you should keep your head elevated and avoid touching the treatment site for several hours. You may see some slight bruising, but this will be easily covered with makeup.
Wrinkle reduction will occur gradually over the next 5 to 7 days as the muscles causing the wrinkles begin to relax. Your facial muscles will continue to function normally, allowing a full range of natural facial expressions. Treatment results will usually last for 3 to 6 months. With continued regular treatments, your results can last longer and you may even be able to prevent some new wrinkles from forming.
To enhance the results of their BOTOX Cosmetic treatment, Dr. Hoffman's patients also choose chemical peels or dermal fillers. This treatment is also a preferred way to "touch up" facial cosmetic surgery results.
Some BOTOX patients need more comprehensive wrinkle treatment. If you have excess, sagging skin around your jaw and mouth, you may be a good candidate for a face lift. Dr. Hoffman's patients benefit from his years of experience and skill performing plastic surgery.
