Botox® Cosmetic in Fontana
West Point Aesthetic Center
Unlock Your Inner Beauty
Botox® Cosmetic is a medication that helps take muscles that over time have become overactive and relax them into a more of a balance with the rest of the muscles of the face. When the muscles become too strong, they injure the skin by not reacting but overreacting and thus creasing the skin. Botox® Cosmetic relax those muscles back to a more natural state, creating a better balance with the surrounding muscles.
We administer small injections of BOTOX ® Cosmetic directly into the area you’d like to improve. If you’re concerned about pain, or have sensitive facial areas, we’ll be happy to apply an ice pack or anesthetic cream to the area we’ll be working on. After that, the purified protein from the injection goes to work immediately on the facial muscles that are causing wrinkles. You will begin to notice visible improvements over the next month.*
BOTOX ® Cosmetic treatments can improve:
- Worry lines in forehead
- Lines between the eyebrows
- Smile lines
- Laugh lines, from nose to mouth
- Crow’s feet
Where does West Point Aesthetic Center get its Botox® Cosmetic?
We get our Original Botox® Cosmetic directly from Allergan, USA and are a proud Platinum member of Allergan partner privileges. Some places get their Botox from Canada or Europe, which is unsafe, and illegal. Ask any provider of Botox Cosmetic what their status is on the Allergan Network. They should have their certificates hanging up on the wall. One other way to check if your provider is using Original Botox Cosmetic is to check on the www.botoxcosmetic.com website.

How does Botox®Cosmetic Work?
When injected into the muscle or tissue, Botox Cosmetic impairs the nerves from telling the muscles to contract or the sweat glands to produce sweat.
How will I look post treatment?
You will notice some initial redness and swelling in the treated area that will subside in the next hour. Within 3-5 days, you will start to notice a more rested appearance, with the best effects noticed in 2 weeks. Contrary to popular belief, you can have a full range of facial expressions with Botox Cosmetic treatments.
How long does Botox® Cosmetic Last?
The effects of Botox Cosmetic typically last 3-4 months. Individual results will vary depending on the strength of the underlying muscles. Your lines will return to the pre-treatment appearance as the Botox® Cosmetic wears off. For your complimentary consultation contact our office at: 909-355-1296
