Botox Treatments in Los Angeles
Are you looking for a skin treatment that will get rid of pesky vertical lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet at the eyes and horizontal forehead lines that seem to show with every expression without an invasive procedure? Patients in Los Angeles have found the answer with Botox treatments at Epione. Botox injections also help patients that are struggling with neck lines, laugh lines and even migraine headaches. This effective wrinkle treatment can significantly boost the confidence of patients to help them feel comfortable in their own skin.
There are several benefits that come with choosing Epione for your Botox Cosmetic injections aside from being able to eliminate wrinkles without surgery. Not only is there no sedation or anesthetic required, but it is also FDA approved. At Epione, all patients receive 100% pure Botox using only authentic allergen products. This is to ensure that each patient gets ultimate strength and results out of each injection. There are also free touch ups available within 14–21 days of the initial treatment to make sure that patients are completely happy with their Botox results.
Typically, Botox is injected using a small needle directly into the muscle that causes the wrinkle. When Botox is injected into the muscle, the nerve impulse is blocked from reaching that targeted area. As a result, the muscle is weakened and the skin that overlays that muscles relaxes to the point where the wrinkles gradually soften up and often times disappear all together. For this reason, many patients consider Botox to be the best wrinkle treatment available.
Am I a Good Candidate for Botox?
Botox injections are for both men and women that are looking to achieve or retain their youthful appearance.

The best candidates for Botox Treatments include:
- People that are in good overall general health
- People that have realistic expectations for the procedure
After patients have had Botox treatment, the results are often seen within the first few days. Results for Botox are most often times temporary and may need to be repeated after 3 to 6 months to achieve the best results.
