Botox Injections in Beverly Hills by Dr. Malcolm Lesavoy

What is Botox?

Botox, also known as Botulinum toxin, has become increasingly popular in recent years as a method to prevent and reduce wrinkles. This cosmetic treatment works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles, resulting in smoother and more youthful-looking skin.

One of the main causes of wrinkles is the repetitive movement of facial muscles. Over time, these movements create creases in the skin, leading to the formation of wrinkles. Botox works by blocking the signals from the nerves to the muscles, preventing them from contracting and causing wrinkles.

How does Botox work?

When Botox is injected into specific areas of the face targeting fine lines and wrinkles, such as the forehead, crow’s feet, and frown lines, it relaxes the muscles in those areas. This relaxation leads to a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and prevents new ones from forming.

What are common uses for Botox?

Botox cosmetic injections are used to treat signs of facial aging and the prevention of developing certain common facial wrinkles. Areas of the face commonly treated with Botox include:

  • Forehead
  • Eyebrows
  • Crow’s Feet
  • Chin
  • Jawline
  • Neck
  • Nose
  • Areas around the mouth

In addition to its anti-aging and wrinkle-reducing effects, Botox has been found to have other benefits as well. It can help alleviate migraines, reduce excessive sweating, and treat muscle spasms and certain medical conditions.

How long does Botox last?

The effects of Botox usually last for three to six months, after which additional injections may be needed to maintain the results.

How often should I get Botox injections?

While Botox is an effective method for preventing wrinkles, it is not a permanent solution. It can help to temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles, but it does not stop the natural aging process.

Most patients schedule Botox treatments every 3-6 months depending on individual preferences and facial wrinkle prevention goals. Some patients notice their results last longer than 6 months.

Are Botox injections painful?

Botox is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that requires minimal downtime. The injections are quick and relatively painless, and most people can resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment.

What is Botox aftercare?

Depending on your specific Botox treatment, Dr. Lesavoy and his staff will direct you to your aftercare. General aftercare instructions are as follows:

  • Stay upright for up to 4 hours after treatment.
  • Avoid heavy lifting and strenuous exercise for 24 hours after treatment.
  • Do not rub or massage the treated area for 24 hours after treatment.
  • Avoid saunas, tanning beds, and hot tubs or 12 hours after treatment.
  • Do not drink alcohol for 48 hours before and after your Botox treatment.

It is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle, including proper skincare and sun protection, to complement the effects of Botox and promote overall skin health.

Does Botox have side effects?

Botox is a pharmaceutical product that must be administered by a license health professional. As with any cosmetic procedure, there are possible side effects to be aware of:

  • Pain, swelling, bruising at the treatment site.
  • Headache
  • Infection at the treatment site
  • Dry eye (Watering, excessive tearing of eyes)
  • Droopy eyelids, crooked eyebrows
  • Asymmetric results

If you experience any of these symptoms, please contact Dr. Lesavoy’s office.
