BOTOX® is a muscle relaxant used to soften expressions that convey stress or fatigue, while enhancing those that give a more positive and refreshed appearance. It’s the leading aesthetic treatment in Los Angeles and across the globe, offering subtle yet effective results that develop and fade gradually.
The effects of BOTOX® vary per individual, typically lasting about 3-4 months. Some people may experience its benefits for a shorter span of 2-3 months, while others enjoy them for up to 6 months. Regular BOTOX® treatments can lead to longer-lasting effects over time.
The full effect of BOTOX® is usually visible within 14 days after the injection.
Downtime is minimal. Expect some swelling and slight redness for a few hours. To minimize swelling, it’s advisable to avoid intense exercise, salty foods, and alcohol shortly after the treatment.
Many clients love their appearance after BOTOX® and choose ongoing treatments, but it’s not a lifelong commitment. You can decide to stop at any time.
BOTOX® is frequently used to treat areas like the forehead for reducing frown lines, around the eyes (crow’s feet), and between the eyebrows. It can also be used for brow lifts and to address lines around the mouth and on the neck.
Yes, BOTOX® is often used as a preventive treatment to inhibit the development of wrinkles. By relaxing facial muscles, it can prevent the deepening of lines that occur with natural expressions over time.
BOTOX® is FDA-approved and considered safe when administered by a qualified professional. It’s important to discuss your medical history and any concerns with your healthcare provider before treatment.
BOTOX® relaxes muscles to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, while fillers are used to plump up areas that have lost volume, filling in wrinkles and creases. They often target different types of wrinkles and can be used in combination for a comprehensive treatment.
Before receiving BOTOX®, avoid alcohol, blood thinners, and certain supplements that can increase bruising. It’s also recommended to discuss your skincare routine and medications with your provider to ensure a safe and effective treatment.
