BOTOX® Cosmetic Los Angeles
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a highly purified protein injected into the skin to relax the muscles that cause some kinds of wrinkles. While BOTOX® can treat certain medical conditions, such as excessive sweating, it is most commonly used for cosmetic purposes, primarily to reduce wrinkles on the face and neck. BOTOX® injections are relatively painless, as the needle used is significantly smaller than those used for other injectable fillers.
The best candidates for BOTOX® are men and women seeking an enhanced appearance with fewer wrinkles. In addition, it is important that those seeking treatment in Los Angeles are in good physical health, are not pregnant or nursing, and do not have a neuromuscular disorder. People seeking BOTOX® injections should have realistic expectations regarding this procedure’s abilities and should discuss their desired goals with their doctor beforehand.
BOTOX® injections are administered by a qualified physician using a very fine needle. The procedure only takes a few minutes and requires no anesthetic. Day-to-day activities can be resumed immediately afterwards. Wrinkles begin to fade within 24 hours, with continued improvement over the next 5 days.
Side effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic are rare and are usually mild and temporary. The most common side effects are headaches and temporary redness or bruising of the skin at the site of injection. Any risk of complication can be reduced by choosing a qualified and experienced physician.
“I’ve been curious about trying Botox for a while. A friend told me about the positive experience she had at the L.A. Vein Center with her spider veins, and how they also do Botox procedures. After reading about her, I decided to give it a try. The experience from the initial consultation to the actual procedure was very pleasant. Dr. Lee and her staff explained the procedure and answered all of my questions. I am thrilled with the results! I will continue to be a patient of Dr. Lee and would recommend L.A. Vein Center to anyone that is interested in Botox.”
