Botox® in Beverly Hills & Los Angeles

Over time, the repeated contraction of facial expression muscles can cause lines and wrinkles to develop, particularly on the forehead and around the eyes and mouth. Botox® is a facial rejuvenation treatment that smooths and softens these facial expression lines, minimizing the appearance of crow’s feet, frown lines, and lip lines to restore a refreshed and youthful appearance.

Botox® has other cosmetic and medical uses, as well, including treating neck bands, smoothing skin dimpling on the chin, correcting a gummy smile, and improving the appearance of the jawline. Botox for medical conditions can reduce excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) under the arms or on the face, hands, or feet; prevent chronic migraines; and stop muscle spasms, including neck spasms and uncontrolled blinking.

How Does Botox® Work?

Botox® is a neuromodulator, a medication that modulates nerve impulses to the muscles. Unlike dermal fillers, which smooth lines and wrinkles by adding volume, Botox® relaxes the muscles that are causing expression lines on the skin. As the treated muscles relax, the skin can lie flat and regain its resilience.

The medical benefits of Botox® derive from the same nerve-modulating property. By controlling nerve impulses, Botox® stops muscle spasms and reduces the nerve signals that lead to migraines and excessive sweating.

What Is Botox®?

Botox® is a purified form of a protein: botulinum toxin type A. It was approved by the FDA for the treatment of muscle spasms in 1989 and cosmetic use in 2022. Since then, millions of patients have experienced the benefits of its remarkable anti-aging properties.

What to Expect During Your Botox® Treatment

Each Botox procedure is performed in the Feldmar Aesthetics Medspa. Your skin may be numbed before treatment with a topical anesthetic or ice, especially if the areas to be treated are sensitive, such as the palms of the hands or the soles of the feet. A fine needle is then used to inject small and precisely calibrated amounts of Botox® into the specific muscles responsible for your facial lines and wrinkles. Most patients experience little discomfort from the injections, describing the sensation as like a pinprick or a bug bite.

Both the placement of the injections and the dosage of Botox® at each injection site are critical to obtaining attractive and natural-looking results, which is why you should always choose an expert injector and Botox clinic. The number of injections you need depends on the treatment areas. Forehead lines, for example, typically require five or more injections.

Most Botox for wrinkles treatment takes less than 30 minutes, often less than 15, after which you can directly resume most normal activities.

What to Expect After Your Botox® Treatment

You may experience some minor bruising at the injection sites, which can be concealed with makeup. You will be instructed not to rub or massage the treated areas, not to lie down for four hours after your treatment, and to refrain from strenuous physical activity for 24 hours. Beyond that, there are no special care instructions. No downtime is needed for recovery, which is one of the great appeals of Botox® treatment.

You will begin to see Botox results in three to five days after your treatment, with final results visible in two weeks. The improvements last for three to five months. When the results begin to fade, you can schedule touch-up treatments to maintain them.

Frequently Asked Questions About Botox®

Yes. Botox® is often combined with other treatments, including dermal fillers for lines and wrinkles not associated with expression muscles or laser skin resurfacing.

Certainly not. Many men have Botox® cosmetic treatments to retain a younger and more refreshed look as their faces begin to show signs of aging.

Botox® injections are relatively safe when performed by a skilled and experienced injector. Unwanted side effects are rare but can include headaches or flu-like symptoms. Mispositioned or incorrectly dosed injections can cause disappointing cosmetic results, which is an important reason to choose a practice like Feldmar Aesthetics, which is highly experienced in administering  Botox® injections safely and effectively.

Botox costs will vary with the areas treated and the number of injections needed. In your consultation, we will review all costs with you, so you are fully informed when planning your treatment. While some medical Botox® treatments may be covered by health insurance, cosmetic treatments typically are not.
