Botox is a protein derived from a bacterium that relaxes the muscle in which it is applied. Muscle relaxation offers many benefits, especially with functions that can alleviate migraine or other conditions caused by muscle tension like TMJ and TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder).
Botox is FDA-approved and offers excellent results in cosmetic application because it allows for the minimization or elimination of wrinkles or expression marks on the face, mainly on the forehead, around the eyes, nose, and mouth.
Whereas a neurotoxin is injected as a muscle relaxer to smooth wrinkles, fillers are injected under the skin to smooth lines, add volume to the face and hands, or plump lips.
Valencia Medical Center uses the following:
Botox and wrinkle relaxers
In addition to Botox, Valencia Medical Center offers other wrinkle relaxers such as Dysport®, Xeomin®, and Jeaveau®.
Valencia Medical Center can thin the jaw for patients who feel their jaw is too wide due to a large masseter muscle using a neuromodulator injection, such as Botox, Dysport, Xeomin or Jeaveau®.
This is an excellent choice for patients who wish to reduce the flare and width of a wide jawline without surgery or achieve a more oval face shape.
Bio-filler with EZ GEL Plasma
EZ Gel technology utilizes the patient's own blood to stimulate the regeneration of collagen and volume in the skin while stimulating the production of growth factors and naturally promoting collagen and tissue rejuvenation.
In addition to botox and fillers, the team at Valencia Medical Center also treats blemishes such as acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles that you’ve accumulated over the years by stimulating your own body’s natural collagen production with little recovery time using microneedling with advanced PRP.
With Botox and fillers, you can enhance your face’s natural collagen so you can feel results almost immediately and see permanent changes.

Botox is a protein derived from a bacterium that has the effect of relaxing the muscle in which it is applied. Muscle relaxation offers many benefits, especially with incredible functions that can alleviate migraine or other conditions caused by muscle tension. But in addition to this use, Botox has excellent results in its cosmetic application, because it allows for the reduction or elimination of wrinkles or expression marks on the face, mainly on the forehead, around the eyes, nose, and mouth.
As we all know, Botox is used to eliminate wrinkles secondary to fine lines on the face. The relaxation is caused by a blockage of unwanted nerve signals on the tissues, with the effect of eliminating those furrows on the skin caused by repeated muscle contraction. We currently have patients who have been treated with Botox for several years with the almost total disappearance of those wrinkles that nobody would like to have and that are so damaging in the photos!
The actual durability of a Botox application is between 3 and 5 months. This can vary by genetic conditions or by the more or less healthy lifestyle that is carried, among other factors. In people who have undergone several treatments can generate resistance, while the effect is more lasting in patients who are just beginning to be treated. It is advisable not to exceed the three annual applications to avoid losing effectiveness.
The treatment is performed by direct application with a syringe and hypodermic needle on specific points of the face. These are super small needles that can sometimes generate minimal pain and are applied directly to the muscle. The intervention of a qualified health professional is always necessary to prevent a bad application from affecting blood vessels or other unwanted areas.
A correct application should not produce any immediate undesired effects. Normally the patient does not present inflammation or pain after the application, in the same way, it is necessary for the professional to keep the application within the safety zones. In cases of poor application, the effects can be a hematoma, swelling at the injection site, or pain in the affected area.
It is important for the patient to discuss his medical history with the doctor and to provide the information required to ensure the best result. It is not recommended to take anti-inflammatories or aspirin, nor any anti-coagulant. If you have taken these medications in the previous days or months it is necessary to tell the doctor so they can evaluate if they can interfere with the treatment.
It is advisable not to exercise or lie down in the following four hours after the application. It is described that sometimes the medication can be displaced from its place if the patient performs these activities in the immediate hours. In that case, the treatment could exert its function in another unwanted place of the face or outside the area of application. After the application, our professionals will give you all the indications so that the effect takes place in the safest and most effective way. After that period, the patient can continue with his normal life without any special precautions.
No, the treatment is really completely harmless. This means that no side effect is directly related to the medication and there are no cases of negative effects due to its prolonged application over time. When a treatment is applied for as many years as Botox, which is available to doctors since the 70s of the last century, we can have full confidence in their safety, due to the high number of studies related to the product and the experience accumulated by millions of applications around the world.
Yes! Botox is FDA Approved.
