Botox works as a “neurotoxin” and is injected to relax facial wrinkles and treat medical conditions such as excess sweating, eyelid spasms, and more. The cosmetic treatment works by blocking impulse signals from the nerve to the muscle. This causes facial lines to relax, soften, and create a less aged appearance.
An experienced provider of Botox in Beverly Hills can be found at the office of Dr. Malcolm Lesavoy. Botox is different from dermal fillers in that they do not enhance volume underneath the skin, but relax hyperactive facial muscles to prevent the appearance of wrinkles. It is best applied in areas where crows feet or lines can develop.
The Botox treatment lasts for an average of four months. The injection does not produce a major amount of pain or discomfort. It is a minor process that will be completed in a short amount of time. The areas of the face that can best respond to Botox injections are the forehead, between the eyebrows, crows feet, and lines around the mouth.
You can expect to see the final results at least two weeks after treatment. During the time before that, you will be able to make facial expressions but not furrow the eyebrows or frown. There are few allergic reactions that patients experience with Botox. The most prominent effects are temporary bruising, lower positioned eyebrows, and possible flu-like symptoms (very rare).
