Botox: More Than Just a Wrinkle Treatment
Botox® Cosmetic is the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment on the market. This neurotoxin is known for its ability to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, but it can also be used to treat excessive sweating and migraines.
When Botox® Cosmetic is injected into parts of the face or body, it temporarily prevents some nerve signals from reaching muscles in that area. This signal blocking effectively reduces muscle contraction so your muscles can become less stiff with time. Botox® is not a facial filler to fill in existing wrinkles, but rather a medication that relaxes the muscles creating those wrinkles. During treatment, a licensed medical professional will inject a tiny amount of Botox® Cosmetic into the muscle. It only takes a few minutes, which is why Botox® Cosmetic is often called the “lunchtime procedure.” There are many parts of the face and body where you can get Botox® injected. Some of the most popular areas for injection are:
• On the forehead to treat forehead and frown lines
• Around the eyes to provide a brow lift and treat crow’s feet
• Above the lip to provide a plumper lip or treat a smile with gum show
• On the sides of the nose to treat “bunny lines”
• In the chin to treat chin dimpling from appearing as an orange peel
• In the masseters to slim a wide or square jawline
• In the neck to relax platysmal bands (strips of muscle running from the base of the neck to the jaw)
• In the armpits treat prevent excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)
The injection procedure is safe, fast, and easily tolerated. There is no downtime, so you can return to normal life right away. Some may experience pinpoint bruising
that may last a few days but can be covered with makeup.
It may take a week or two to see the full effect of Botox® Cosmetic. You may also need to get reinjected after three to four months to maintain your results, although the amount of time varies from patient to patient. Botox® Cosmetic is not the only type of Botulinum A toxin on the market. However, we have found through years of practice that many people do not tolerate other brands as well as Botox® Cosmetic. At Beauty Boost Med Spa, we strive for perfection and we want our patients to receive only the best products out there. We chose to use Botox® Cosmetic due to its consistent results and longevity.
Who Performs the injections
BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are a medical procedure that should only be administered by a highly-trained, experienced medical professional in a controlled environment. At Beauty Boost Med Spa, treatments are only carried out by the most qualified and discreet medical providers. You can rest assured that service is safe and professional.
Each treatment begins with an initial consultation at our Newport Beach location. The provider will examine your face, ask detailed questions about your desired outcomes, listen to your needs and wishes, and advise accordingly. During the examination, they will ask you to move any areas of your face you may you wish to change, note any natural asymmetry, and take photographs for your own private records.
After the consultation, we will administer a personalized Botox® Cosmetic treatment. Every patient is different, and not everyone wishes to have the same end result. For most patients, we inject 5-10 small injections, depending on which areas are to be treated. Each combined consultation and treatment lasts around 15-30 minutes.

Other Botox treatments
Botox Masseter Reduction
The masseter (chewing muscle) can change the shape of one’s face if it is enlarged. For some women, enlarged masseters may create a masculine or “chubby cheek” appearance.
When this muscle enlarges, the shape of your face can change – sometimes quite dramatically. For women, this presents the issue of appearing somewhat masculine.
Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, can significantly affect a person’s quality of life. Many people find the condition to be extremely embarrassing and socially isolating.
Botox® is a highly effective treatment for focal hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating in one area of the body. The botulinum toxin blocks the nerve signals associated with sweating, which stops the sweat glands from producing so much perspiration.

What our clients are saying
Anyone considering cosmetic enhancement should pay a visit to Beauty Boost Med Spa. Anisa has a great eye for symmetry and will take you through beautiful transformation step by step. Her work is extremely natural yet extremely effective. She offers great suggestions and really customizes her treatments for the best results. She is also the sweetest person! It's like hanging out with a friend in her office. Really glad I found this Med spa! Would give 6 stars if I could!
Anisa is quite frankly THE BEST! I traveled from the SF Bay Area just to go to her med spa in Newport Beach, it would be my first time with any injectables. I researched and did consultations with multiple injectors in my own area (SF Bay Area) but couldn't find anyone I was comfortable with. There are a lot of scary looking injectors out there, some without credentials and others that just weren't interested in really taking the time to get to know my needs.
I feel blessed that I found Anisa! She is really great at what she does. She has a great aesthetics and always listens to my concerns and is accommodating to help me to get the best results. It really does not get much better than this... She always makes me feel special and pretty!!! Highly recommend her.
