BOTOX ® Cosmetic is a purified protein that is used to treat “dynamic” wrinkles of the face and neck – those wrinkles caused over time by repeated muscle movements like smiling or frowning. We deliver BOTOX treatments in Santa Rosa at Allegro MedSpa by a series of injections via very small needles. Your skin care professional targets very specific parts of the face to weaken the small facial muscles responsible for producing:
- Forehead creases
- Frown lines in between the brows
- “Crow’s feet” by the eyes
- Wrinkles on the sides of nose
- Wrinkles of the upper lip
- Vertical “banding” on the neck
In addition to being an effective wrinkle treatment, when injected in specific locations by our skilled skin care professionals in Santa Rosa, BOTOX gives our Novato and Marin County clients a subtle but desirable “lateral brow lift” without surgery. The result is a relaxed, refreshed, and more youthful appearance. The skin health professionals at Allegro MedSpa are highly trained and experienced with these cosmetic treatments, and with us, you also can enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing that all treatments are supervised by on-site, board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Francisco Canales and Dr. Heather Furnas.

More about BOTOX Treatments
BOTOX is a safe treatment when administered properly by a trained professional, such as one of the staff members here at Allegro MedSpa. Results are usually apparent in 3 to 7 days, and may last up to 3 to 6 months for our Marin County patients, depending on where BOTOX is injected, how much is used, and how each individual’s anatomy responds to treatment.
Many patients notice that after repeated treatments with BOTOX, results last a little longer each time. This is because after repeated exposure to the protein in BOTOX Cosmetic, the facial muscles become less able to metabolize the protein, increasing the duration of skin smoothing results. For this reason, it is recommended that treatments be performed prior to the complete return of muscle function.
No downtime is required after your BOTOX Cosmetic treatment. BOTOX is priced by the treatment unit, and the total cost of your visit will depend on the number of units required to treat your cosmetic concerns. It works very well in conjunction with other wrinkle treatment options, including injectable fillers like Restylane®. BOTOX Cosmetic treatments can also be combined with Fraxel® laser or skin rejuvenation treatments near Napa Valley at our day spa.
