The first signs of the aging process are usually noticeable in the face. As we age, wrinkles first appear in the areas of the forehead, cheeks, around the eyes and lips. At Zelken Institute in Newport Beach, Orange County our highly trained plastic surgeons and skin care professionals work with safe and effective Botox treatments to rejuvenate your appearance.
Botox is a well-known non-surgical cosmetic treatment to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. Botox is the brand name for injections with botulinum toxin and it is used in the medical field as well to control muscle spasms, reduce excessive sweating and improve migraines. Because Botox injections have a paralyzing effect on muscles it relaxes the skin in a safe way. This is why it is also so popular as a cosmetic treatment.
At Zelken Institute our experienced skin care professionals pride themselves on providing patients with excellent, natural looking results. Your friends and family will notice your refreshed, younger looking appearance, but they will not expect that you had a Botox treatment.
A Botox treatment is a fast, non-invasive treatment that takes only 15 minutes to perform. The Botox will be injected directly into the muscles beneath the wrinkles and fine lines. The wrinkles on the forehead, eyes and lips can be treated well with Botox. The fluid will paralyze the muscles, which has a relaxing and smoothening effect on the wrinkles and lines of the face. Three days after the treatment the Botox will start to work and the maximum revitalizing effect will be visible after two weeks. You will look younger, refreshed and revitalized. Botox is a natural substance that is broken down by the body over time. In most cases, the effect of the treatment disappears after three to five months. Botox treatments can then be repeated.
In general, a Botox treatment has virtually no recovery time. This is why it is also called a “lunchtime treatment”. After the short procedure, you can return to your daily activities. In the first half hour, the face may show some redness, but this will clear quickly. There are some cases where the treated area had some small bruises from the needle. This can be camouflaged with makeup.
As we age, our skin begins to lose its elasticity and the muscles underneath our jaw begin to droop and become more prominent. This same muscle pulls down the cheeks resulting in the loss of jawline definition. A Nefertiti Lift is an effective treatment using non-invasive Botox injections as an alternative to neck surgery.
Nefertiti was an ancient Egyptian queen who was renowned for her elegant beauty. Nefertiti literally means “a beautiful woman has come” and she has become an icon in the aesthetic world. She was admired for her graceful neck curvature and distinct jawline. It is no wonder why this non-surgical neck rejuvenation procedure is named after her. The Nefertiti Lift uses botulinum toxin (Botox) to relax the neck muscles, resulting in a more lifted and defined jawline. The expert skin care professionals at Zelken Institute are pleased to offer this procedure in conjunction with dermal fillers to create an even more sculpted neck contour.
To ensure safety and effective results it is important that a cosmetic professional with the correct training and expertise performs the treatment, like the skin care experts at Zelken Institute in Newport Beach, Orange County.

Some people worry that their face will be stiff and not show emotion after a Botox treatment. If a skilled, licensed cosmetic surgeon administers Botox, the correct dose will be applied properly and in the right areas. The Botox treatment at the Zelken Institute is subtle and will look natural so that no one will suspect you have had cosmetic treatment.
Most patients describe the sensation of a Botox treatment as pinching. The treatment does not hurt but may cause some discomfort. In order to make the Botox treatment as comfortable as possible, we may use ice to numb the area. At the Zelken Institute in Newport Beach, Orange County, we may also apply a numbing cream before the treatment if you are concerned about discomfort.
