BOTOX for San Jose

Also Serving Mountain View & Bay Area



At Pearl-Ereso Plastic Surgery Center we offer a variety of non-surgical cosmetic procedures. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a non-surgical alternative San Jose Bay Area locals may consider when deciding on the appropriate cosmetic enhancement procedure for their needs and desired results. BOTOX® Cosmetic (Botulinum Toxin) is most effective in treating the type of lines and wrinkles caused by muscle contraction during facial expressions such as frowning or squinting. Common areas for BOTOX® Cosmetic injections include horizontal forehead furrows, vertical lines between the eyebrows, and “crow’s feet” around the eyes. BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected directly into the muscles in these areas to reduce their activity. Usually, within a few days after your injections, the expression lines in the treatment areas will appear noticeably softer. Recently, BOTOX® Cosmetic has been additionally used to elevate the corners of the mouth, flatten lines around the mouth and improve early neckbands. The lateral portion of the brows can gently be elevated and the overall shape improved with BOTOX® Cosmetic.

BOTOX® Cosmetic Procedure

Usually, 15-50 units of BOTOX® Cosmetic are injected with a tiny needle into the muscle that creates a wrinkle. When BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into a muscle, it blocks the nerve impulse from reaching that area, and as a result, the muscle weakens. As the muscle weakens, the skin overlying the muscle relaxes and the wrinkles in the skin gradually soften and often disappear. Established furrows will be improved but will not be erased. A cream with local anesthetic will be placed on your skin prior to treatment, and ice will be immediately applied upon completion of your BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment.

Our knowledgeable professionals are happy to answer any questions you may have about the BOTOX® Cosmetic procedure. Potential patients can call to set up an informative consultation today.

Am I a Good Candidate for Botox?

If you have noticed that your face has lost elasticity and shape over time, you may be considering Botox treatment to address these effects. Here are a few things we look for to determine if you are a good candidate:

  • Moderate to severe facial wrinkles
  • Marionette lines around the mouth
  • Wrinkles located in the forehead area, between the eyes or around the neck
  • Realistic expectations of the results

Safety of BOTOX® Cosmetic

BOTOX® Cosmetic has been used safely and successfully in ophthalmology for many years. In the amounts used for wrinkle therapy, the only side effects are temporary and localized to the area of injection. Sometimes the brow and forehead feel heavy and droopy. Occasionally bruising occurs at the sites of injection. You may have a headache immediately after treatment that usually responds well to acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen (Advil®, Motrin®, Nuprin®).

Dr. Ereso and his staff will inform you of the possible complications of BOTOX® Cosmetic. Be sure to raise any questions you may have about the safety of the procedure.

By carefully following his advice and instructions – both before and after treatment – you can minimize some of the risks.

As with any cosmetic procedure, an experienced doctor is key to optimal results. Dr. Ereso and our skilled team have been catering to the plastic surgery needs of the entire San Jose Bay Area for many years. He has the extensive knowledge and expertise to give you the safe, effective BOTOX® Cosmetic experience you deserve.

BOTOX® Cosmetic Results

BOTOX® Cosmetic has proven to be the best non-surgical form of facial rejuvenation producing phenomenal improvements with a minimum of risk. The duration of its effect, which is 2-4 months, is its only drawback. Our comprehensive understanding of facial anatomy and the BOTOX® Cosmetic procedure ensures the best results possible.

Return Visits with DR. ERESO

After your initial BOTOX® treatment, we will ask you to return in 2-4 weeks for re-evaluation. Occasionally small amounts of additional BOTOX® Cosmetic will be recommended to achieve your ideal result. Patients will frequently repeat 2-4 treatments in a year to maintain their new look.
