BOTOX® continues as the most popular treatment for the reduction of wrinkles and other fine lines. This is because the treatment typically takes only minutes to complete, and the results are long-lasting. There’s also no surgery involved. BOTOX® doesn’t treat the skin directly, but instead affects muscle action by preventing nerve impulses from reaching the muscles in the first place. When administered to the facial muscles, it helps keeps the skin smooth and wrinkle-free. It’s particularly effective for treating smile lines and crow’s feet that appear near the corners of the mouth and eyes, as well as forehead wrinkles. Our services extend to all individuals in Beverly Hills and neighboring communities, and we would be happy to consult with anyone wanting more information on how BOTOX® can help in maintaining a wrinkle-free appearance.
How BOTOX® Works
BOTOX® is a purified protein solution that is used to affect muscle action. It works as a neurotransmitter blocker, preventing brain signals from reaching the upper-level facial muscles. As a result, the muscles relax. When injected into targeted areas of muscle tissue on the face, the solution prevents the upper-level muscles from fully contracting. The individual can still smile, frown, or pout, but the skin remains smooth. This keeps the dynamic wrinkles from becoming visible.
The Injection Procedure
For those in Beverly Hills who are interested in BOTOX®, we would be happy to schedule a consultation prior to treatment. During this meeting at our office in Santa Monica, you can meet with our specialist and see if the treatment is right for you. From there, you can look forward to treatment.
During the actual treatment, the BOTOX® solution is skillfully injected into the preselected facial muscles. After having the client make some facial expressions, we’ll know exactly where to inject the fluid.
It takes a few days for the BOTOX® to settle in and begin the nerve signal blocking. The face won’t feel numb when the muscles remain relaxed. In fact, most of our clients don’t notice any difference in the way their facial skin feels when they touch it following the injections.
Advantages and Benefits
No surgery is performed, and no direct skin treatment is involved when BOTOX® is injected. This means no chance of discoloration or bleaching. Many of our clients in Beverly Hills are thinking about a facelift procedure in the future, but they don’t feel that such an aggressive treatment is necessary. This is the perfect option for those not yet ready for any sort of skin repositioning procedure.
