Laughing is one of life’s best joys and yet it comes with one drawback: laugh lines. If you want to enjoy the pleasures of life without giving away your age then Botox may be the right option for you. Botox is one of the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic treatments not just in Encino, CA, but also throughout the US.
How does it work?
Botox is made from a purified form of the bacteria Clostridium botulinum. When Botox is injected into the face it smooths away lines and wrinkles by temporarily preventing certain muscle groups from contracting.
When is Botox used?
Dr. Alex Eshaghian and his team often provide Botox to patients looking to get younger-looking skin and to reduce early signs of aging without resorting to surgery or more invasive cosmetic treatments. If you are dealing with moderate to severe wrinkles and lines around the mouth, eyes, forehead and brows then Botox may be right for you.
Botox is designed to target dynamic wrinkles, which are wrinkles that appear when making facial expressions. You could be an ideal candidate for Botox if you are dealing with,
- Crow’s feet
- Laugh lines
- Horizontal lines (furrow lines) between the brows
- Forehead wrinkles
What should I expect from the Botox procedure?
The powdered neurotoxin is diluted in a saline solution and then injected into the muscles of the face. Multiple very small injections are administered in one session and are easily tolerated. Discomfort from the injections is minimal, causing only a quick and mild stinging sensation. Administering Botox only takes about 10 minutes and patients can return to work immediately after. There is no downtime associated with Botox treatment.
It can take up to 72 hours for Botox to take effect; therefore, you will not see immediate results after the treatment. It can take up to 5 days to see the full effects. Botox results last around 4 months; however, if you love your results then talk with Dr. Eshaghian about getting maintenance Botox treatments. These maintenance treatments are even easier and faster to perform and can help you keep your results fresh longer.
