Botox - Treating Fine Lines San Francisco

Botox is an injectable that is primarily used to resolve facial wrinkles and fine lines, but it is not like most other anti-wrinkle injectables.

There are numerous dermal filler injectables on the market, and you may have heard of these. Rather than being a dermal filler, Botox is instead a muscle relaxant.

Dermal filler injectables focus on volumizing the skin to fill wrinkles. Botox, on the other hand, eases away fine wrinkles by relaxing the muscles that cause them. Contracted muscles crease the overlying skin. When they’re relaxed, the skin is flat and smooth.

​​​​​​​Doctors Douglas Chin and Glen Lau, two board-certified San Francisco plastic surgeons with years of experience, are your ideal choice for Botox and any other injectables you’re interested in. For a consultation, contact our office today.
