What is BOTOX®?
Botox Beverly Hills Cosmetic is a quick, safe treatment designed to temporarily reduce frown lines between the brows, forehead and crows feet. This FDA-approved procedure involves a series of small injections of a purified protein directly into the muscle. The effects usually last three to six months, whereupon treatment can be repeated for continual, long-lasting results.
How is BOTOX® Performed?
The Botox Beverly Hills procedure is performed right here in our office, and should only take a few minutes. Our trained Botox Beverly Hills technician will use a very fine needle to inject the diluted botulinum toxin type A solution into the targeted facial muscles. Once the Botox Beverly Hills begins to take effect, your facial muscles will appear relaxed and wrinkle-free, leaving you with a much more youthful, rejuvenated appearance.
Am I a Good Candidate for Botox Beverly Hills?
If you want to rid your face of fine lines and wrinkles but you’re not yet ready for a more serious, surgical procedure, Botox Beverly Hills may be the perfect solution for you. Botox Beverly Hills is extremely effective in reducing the appearance of forehead creases, crow’s feet and laugh lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth. In addition, Botox has been approved to treat the following disorders:
- Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
- Dystonia (muscle spasms)
- Chronic pain
- Jaw tension
- Uncontrolled blinking
- Lazy eye
If you have any specific questions, please call our offices today to set up a personal, one-on-one consultation.
What Kind of Post-Operative BOTOX® Care Can I Expect?
BOTOX® has been appropriately dubbed a “lunchtime procedure,” as patients experience little to no down time. After the injection, you’re free to resume normal daily activities immediately. There are no incisions, bandages or anything of the like, and side effects are typically limited to some minor bruising and headaches.
Your doctor may advise you, however, to avoid laying down for at least four hours, or rubbing the treated area for at least 12 hours after the procedure, as this could cause the solution to travel to other areas of the body.
What are the Typical Results of BOTOX®?
Most of our Botox Beverly Hills patients are thrilled with their results, which includes younger, more supple-looking skin following treatment. It’s important to remember, however, that BOTOX® is not a permanent solution. While results last between three and six months, the treated muscles will eventually regain their ability to contract and the wrinkles will reappear. Follow-up injections are recommended at this point.
We recommend taking a look at some BOTOX® before and after photos before making any decisions, so you can visualize the results you should likely expect.
What are BOTOX® Costs?
Each patient is different and has different goals in mind, so Botox Beverly Hills prices tend to vary. We recommend setting up an initial consultation, where Dr. Mehr can assess your specific needs and discuss average Botox prices. A member of our friendly staff will be happy to accommodate you.
We are happy to answer any questions you may have about the procedure, and we are proud to serve Botox Beverly Hills patients throughout Los Angeles.
