Botox Los Angeles – Wrinkle Relaxers Beverly Hills
For many people in the Los Angeles area, fine lines and wrinkles are an ever-increasing concern. Constant movement by the facial muscles causes the skin to furrow, leading to a number of conditions as we age:
Horizontal Forehead Lines
Frown Lines Between the Eyebrows
Fortunately, any area of the face where muscle contraction causes wrinkles to develop can be treated using Botox injections. Botox is an FDA-approved product for wrinkle therapy. It is derived from botulinum toxin, a natural compound that relaxes the muscles when administered in small doses. By keeping the muscles from contracting it can help ease the appearance of fine lines caused by common facial expressions.
Rather than undergoing a surgical process, such as a facelift, many patients today find the speed and ease of Botox treatments to be a preferable alternative to more invasive procedures. These procedures are well-established, having been in use for more than a decade. Once used only by high-profile celebrities and others in the know, Botox is now a popular procedure among people from all walks of life.
The Botox® Procedure at Epione in Beverly Hills
Before your Botox treatment, you will first have a consultation during which your reasons for seeking Botox will be determined, along with your goals for the outcome from this procedure. Once your case has been assessed, target areas will be determined for your injections.
The Botox procedure itself is fairly straightforward. However, it is important that your procedure be performed by a highly-skilled doctor, such as the ones here at Epione, to achieve the best outcome. Using a small needle, the cosmetic dermatologist will inject small amounts of Botox directly into the muscle. The serum works by relaxing the muscle, preventing it from causing the skin to fold and easing the overall appearance of lines and wrinkles. The results of this treatment are usually apparent in just a few days. We also offer free touch-up procedures within 14 to 21 days of the initial treatment to ensure that you are completely satisfied with your results.
Recovery Following Botox in Los Angeles at Epione
In addition to being minimally invasive, another advantage of Botox treatments is the quick recovery time our patients enjoy. The treatment itself usually only takes around 10 minutes to complete. Many of our patients choose to have this procedure done during their lunch break, returning to work right after their visit. Although there might be a slight stinging when the injections are administered, there is usually no pain after the treatment. It is important to avoid contact with the treated areas for at least four hours following your procedure. In addition, exercise should be put on hold for at least 24 hours.
Is Botox right for me?
Botox has been a popular choice among those who want to soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for many years now. More recently, younger people have also sought this treatment as a preventative measure to reduce future signs of aging. Men and women alike enjoy the rejuvenating qualities that Botox can grant their faces. If you are considering Botox, you should be in relatively good health. In addition, it is important to have tangible, realistic goals in mind for your procedure. Although the benefits of Botox are numerous, there are limits to what can be achieved with this minimally invasive procedure.
