Botox is a neurotoxin which improves the appearance of frown lines between the eyebrows, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet. It works by targeting the exact muscles responsible for causing the wrinkles and lines but still keeping expressive muscles active.
Remember when we were kids and adults would tell us, “If you keep making that face, it’s going to get stuck like that”? Well, they may have been onto something. The repeated contraction of facial muscles eventually causes wrinkles and fine lines to appear in the places where our skin naturally creases when we smile, squint, frown, or raise our eyebrows.
Notoriously stubborn problem areas such as frown lines, horizontal wrinkles on the forehead, and crow’s feet are all caused by the repetition of the various facial expressions we make on a daily basis. Botox is a protein derived from Botulinum toxin. When small doses of this toxin are injected, targeted muscles are paralyzed or weakened, and their ability to contract and cause or deepen wrinkles is reduced. A quick treatment at either of our Plastic Surgery Institute locations can decrease the signs of aging and leave patients feeling refreshed and with a more youthful appearance. It is also effectively used to prevent the development of further fine lines. Botox also offers relief for a variety of health conditions including migraines, excessive sweating, and involuntary muscle spasms.
Ideal candidates for Botox Beverly Hills are healthy adults who have noticed fine lines and wrinkles, and would like to lift or smooth the forehead, eyebrows, eyes, or mouth. Patients with mild to moderate wrinkles and fine lines typically achieve the most dramatic results with Botox.
Depending on the depth of wrinkles and extent of skin laxity, patients displaying more advanced signs of aging may experience more dramatic results with one of our other skin-rejuvenating procedures. Botox is not an appropriate treatment for patients with heavy eyelids. Patients with careers requiring the use of a wide range of facial expressions should especially consider the restrictions placed on facial muscles before receiving Botox. Please schedule a consultation to discuss your Botox treatment or to learn which of our skin-rejuvenating treatments may best serve your needs.

The first step when starting Botox is our aesthetic specialist will examine the areas of concern and discuss a plan of action. After cleaning the area to be treated, the specialist will begin injections. Patients may feel a slight pinch upon injection and may experience minor redness at injection sites.
The total treatment time for Botox is typically 30 minutes and there is no downtime, so patients can return to their regular daily activities immediately.Results from Botox appear within one to two weeks and can last up to three to six months. Patients can expect smoother, lifted, and rejuvenated skin in treated areas.

Botox is most effective as a treatment for dynamic wrinkles (wrinkles caused by the movement of the face). Static wrinkles may also be smoothed with the use of Botox, though the results are likely to be less dramatic.
It is advised to wait at least 24 hours following treatment to work out. When we exercise, our heart rate and circulation increase. The increase in circulation in the face may cause the Botox to be absorbed in places other than the targeted areas, hindering results.
