BOTOX AT BRILLIANCE DERMATOLOGY
BOTOX is one of the most popular and effective non-surgical anti-aging treatments to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. BOTOX is FDA-approved to temporarily improve the appearance of frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet.
Whether you have consistently relied upon BOTOX to keep your facial skin looking fresh, young, and smooth or are considering treatment, we invite you to experience our boutique medspa experience, with all treatments performed under the close supervision of Dr. Hal Weitzbuch, our award-winning, board-certified dermatologist who has some of the best results with Botox in Thousand Oaks.
What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is the first and only neuromodulator that is FDA-approved to temporarily enhance the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines, crow's feet, and forehead lines in adults. It contains a purified protein that targets repeated muscle contractions that cause wrinkles, including:
- Raising eyebrows
When BOTOX® is injected into these muscles, it temporarily reduces muscle activity, allowing the muscles to relax and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

What are the Benefits of BOTOX®?
BOTOX® has earned its popularity as the #1 selling treatment because of its many benefits. Some of these include:
- Backed by extensive clinical research
- Treatment requires minimal downtime, so you can immediately resume your daily routine
- The first noticeable results are almost immediate, appearing within 24 and 48 hours after treatment
- Full results appear in just thirty days
- Natural results so you look like you, only with less noticeable facial lines and wrinkles
- Younger patients find it effective in preventing fine lines and wrinkles from forming
- Results last four to six months
How Long Does BOTOX Last?
The improvements achieved with BOTOX may appear at once for some patients or require a few days before you see the smoother, younger look to appear. The results continue to improve as the days pass and the product does its work. Side effects are minimal, and downtime is typically not needed. Mild discomfort, swelling, or redness can appear at the injection site but fades within the first few hours.
Since BOTOX will slowly stop creating the smoothing effect, repeat treatments are necessary to maintain optimal results, with most of our patients returning for treatment every four to six months.
How Does BOTOX in Westlake Village work?
Our BOTOX in Westlake Village is administered by a certified dermatologist or other licensed professional. It works by blocking nerve signals to the muscles in the targeted area.
In blocking the nerve signals, BOTOX prevents localized muscles from constantly contracting and creating lines and wrinkles. It gives the skin a smoother, more youthful appearance without the need for invasive surgery with a long recovery. Your treatment will take only moments of your time, with no worries about downtime and missing work or other activities.
Are you a candidate for BOTOX?
BOTOX works best on patients with mild to moderate wrinkles, particularly on the neck, forehead, around the mouth, or the eyes. For deeper wrinkles, multiple injections or treatment sessions may be required. Other anti-aging injectables or treatments can be used in conjunction with BOTOX to help create a youthful, fresh look and more thorough facial rejuvenation. Ideal candidates for a facelift should meet the following requirements:
- Desire for smoother skin
- Healthy skin elasticity
- Good health status
- No allergies or sensitivities
- Age requirement met
- Realistic expectations
Botox Patient Reviews
I think this is the second time I gave Dr. Weitzbuch a 5 stars review. Recently, I went to see him again for botox. I was very pleased with the results. I love this doctor. He always enters the room with a great smile and he makes me feel so comfortable. He will always take his time in checking exactly what I need and explain in detail what needs to be done. He is very professional and very honest. I always have great results !!! Thank you Dr. Weitzbuch. You deserve 10 stars :)
I have seen Tina several times for Botox and filler. She has a calming presence that makes me feel very comfortable. Tina explained what she was going to do and how much discomfort I was going to feel (her blocks are amazing, so the procedure ends up being pain free). The results were amazing, I look years younger. I'm forever grateful for her professionalism and skill. I know that I can never trust anyone else and I'll be sending all of my friends to Brilliance Dermatology!
I've been a happy client of Dr. Destefano since I moved to the US from the UK 10 yrs ago. Most people are SHOCKED to learn my age. They always guess 10-15 years younger. Botox, peels and good skin care go a long way! Dr. Destefano has also helped me through difficult times, e.g., painful migraines (Botox), shingles, and alopecia. I wouldn't go anywhere else!
LOVE LOVE LOVE TINA!! I get my botox and other girly needs here and Tina is outstanding! The whole staff is great and friendly!
Tina Malcom at Brilliance Dermatology is just fantastic at what she does. She has done fillers and botox for me . I just had a third grandson and she makes me look like a younger "gramma" ! I just love her. She is professional, incredible attention to detail, caring, her product knowledge is terrific, and she listens to what you would like to accomplish. I would not think of having anyone else work on my face. I feel confident that what she suggests is always just the right thing. My face and skin are getting better and better thanks to her. Thank you Tina!
I love, love, love Brilliance Dermatology! I've seen Dr. Destefano for years. I recently met Dr. Weitzbuch and he is great, too! Everyone in the office is very professional and friendly. Tina is AMAZING! She is so sweet and so good with Botox and fillers. She is very thorough and very tasteful. Just look at her face, it is flawless. She helped me get over my initial fear of the process and I can't wait to go back.

Botox Frequently Asked Questions
How much does Botox cost?
Botox prices vary depending on how much is needed to achieve the desired results and on how many areas are treated.
Is Botox painful?
Botox injections are not usually described as painful because the needle is so fine. A numbing agent can be applied to help reduce discomfort.
Will my face look unnatural?
When used properly and precisely in experienced hands, Botox is applied only to the muscles that are actively causing the wrinkles, ensuring that you never look frozen or stiff.
What age is best to start botox treatments?
Most patients start in their thirties and some begin in their mid-twenties, using Botox as a preventive treatment.
How can you make your botox treatment last longer?
Do gentle exercises to help the Botox spread, but do not massage the area right after treatment. Stay hydrated, stay out of the sun, moisturize your skin, and take a regular zinc supplement.
