We all know that as you age, you develop fine lines and wrinkles on our face that we all wish would just disappear as fast as they originally appeared. Rather than spending your days reminiscing on your youthful appearance, come into visit Jerome R. Potozkin, MD and Samantha Ellis, MD in San Ramon Valley and do something about it! With Botox treatments, we can reverse the signs of aging with no downtime. Botox is a world-renowned, non-invasive, FDA-approved cosmetic treatment that reduces the appearance of crow’s feet between the eyes and fine lines and wrinkles in the forehead.

At Jerome R. Potozkin, MD you can expect nothing but the best and safest treatment. Dr. Potozkin and Dr. Ellis are Board Certified Dermatologists specializing in minimally and non-invasive cosmetic procedures and has extensive experience with neuromodulators. Their knowledge on these procedures enabled them to speak at countless national meetings and has given him the opportunity to instruct other dermatologists and plastic surgeons on advanced injection techniques.

Common areas treated with Botox include:

  • The Glabella (the area between the eyebrows, also known as “11” lines)
  • Forehead
  • Crow’s feet
  • Lipstick lines/Smoker’s lines

By gently softening these unwanted fine lines, Botox can refresh your look in just a few minutes. As highlighted in our blog post, contrary to the misconception that Botox completely freezes facial muscles, it is truly meant to preserve facial expression while diminishing and softening lines.

Jerome R. Potozkin, MD and Samantha Ellis, MD believes everyone deserves the opportunity to be confident in their looks, which is why Botox is one of our most popular cosmetic treatment options for reversing those pesky wrinkles and fine lines. To do this, we use a very fine needle to inject Botox into the facial muscles responsible for wrinkles, allowing them to relax and ultimately reduce their ability to contract (which causes lines). Our needles are tiny to ensure a precise injection and patient comfort with no lasting marks.

The best part is that Botox requires no downtime, so you’ll be in and out the door feeling more confident and better than ever before. The treatment only takes minutes to administer, and afterward, you can carry on with your everyday activities. And while its effectiveness greatly depends on the physiological makeup of each patient, Botox injections typically last three to six months. Botox is truly a miracle drug as it can also be used to prevent migraines, headaches, and reduce excessive sweating. Under some circumstances, Botox injections can even be covered by your insurance provider.

To begin cosmetic treatments with Jerome R. Potozkin, MD, or Samantha Ellis, MD we’ll start by listening to your concerns. We are committed to delivering only the very best care we can in the very best way we can, which means making each and every patient feel welcomed and comfortable during their time in our office.
