Recovery and Healing

  • Do NOT massage the area after being treated.
  • Avoid laying down for 2 hours after being treated.
  • Avoid flying for 2 hours after being treated.
  • You may drive yourself to and from the treatments and resume normal activities immediately.
  • Avoid sweating and heavy exercise for the first 24 hours.

Pain and Risk

  • There can be a slight chance of minimal and temporary bruising at the injection site. Other negative side effects can be eyelid drooping if the Botox® seeps below the eyebrow and hits the muscle that controls the lid, BUT that is very rare.
  • The only people that should not have Botox® treatments are those known to be allergic, persons with neurological diseases and pregnant women.
  • First time La Jolla Botox® users might encounter a slight headache which is felt for the first few days until the muscles completely relax.

What can you expect

  • After treatment, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled while the untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, reversing the visible signs of aging.
  • Botox® can take anywhere from 2 to 7 days to have this effect after injection.
  • The results last, on average, three to four months. However, after 1 to 2 years of repeated treatment every 3 or 4 months, some patients have experienced a more long-lasting effect.
  • Botox® will not improve sagging skin or replace the need for a face lift or laser procedure.
  • Botox® cannot improve wrinkles not caused by muscle contractions.

You should follow these simple Botox pre post care instructions to have the maximum benefits from the botox cosmetic treatment.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19 View Update Virtual Consultation


Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update

Updated March 17th, 2020

After serious consideration and in line with the recommendations of our State and Centers for Disease Control (CDC), we are closing the practice until April 13th, 2020.

Your health and well-being is our primary concern and we want to do our part to make sure that you are protected.

Effective immediately the following will occur:

  • All procedures and in-person consultations will be suspended until March 30th.
  • The office will be closed but we will see our urgent follow-ups.
  • We are instituting Virtual Consultations for all potential patients.
  • No patient will ever have any financial recourse for rescheduling their procedures.

We are constantly updating our services and staffing according to the local and national recommendations and will always place your health and well-being as our top priority.

We continue to exercise all the latest recommendations that are handed down by the CDC. These include:

  • Staff have been fully informed and trained to understand the disease process and its modes of transmission.
  • All staff, vendors and ancillary personnel are being asked to refrain from coming to this office if they have any signs or symptoms of a cold or an upper respiratory tract infection.
  • Every patient is also being asked to refrain from coming to the office if they have any symptoms.
  • We are asking our patients about any pertinent travel history.
  • Hand-washing continues to be the most important mode of prevention. Although it is a part of what we constantly do, now we are doing so with heightened vigilance and attention.
  • We have instituted a “no handshakes no hug” policy for now.
  • We have asked all vendors that any unnecessary meetings are canceled until further notice.
  • Any exit and entrance from our office are followed by a protocol of changing shoes, scrubs and sanitization.
  • As we are an accredited medical facility, we are constantly sanitizing all surfaces. We have now vamped that up and our routine, multiple times a day, wiping down all surfaces, desks, door handles, keyboards and restroom facilities. We have assigned a person that does so on a constant basis.

Although Covid-19 is a serious issue, we strongly believe that it will pass and hopefully make our infrastructure and our ability to deal with pandemics in this Country even better than it currently is. We are monitoring this situation on a real-time basis and will not sit back until we know that we have done everything possible to avoid unnecessary exposure.
