Pasadena Botox Injections & Treatment

Most wrinkles are caused by the repeated contraction of facial muscles when we animate. Over time these wrinkles become etched into our skin forming permanent lines and eventually deep furrows. A Botox treatment relaxes these muscles softening the lines and in some cases erasing them altogether. Ideally Botox treatment should be started before wrinkles become established thereby preventing their formation. Proper placement of a small amount of Botox injection gives a fresh, youthful look, without appearing frozen. Dr. Ruhge’s in Pasadena extensive knowledge of facial anatomy ensures that your Botox injections will be placed properly and safely giving you the look you desire.

Botox injections using tiny needles and takes only minutes to perform. There is no down time so you may return to work or other activities immediately. If facial lines have become deeply etched into the skin, an injectable filler such as Juvederm or Restylane is recommended in addition to Botox treatment. This approach fills the deep furrows as well as removes the wrinkles giving the face a completely rejuvenated appearance. Botox injections takes approximately three days to begin working and lasts three to four months.
