What Is Botox?
Botox® in Manhattan Beach is a safe and an effective facial rejuvenation treatment. It has become one of the most common cosmetic skin treatments in the United States today.
Botox Cosmetic can eliminate and soften wrinkles that occur naturally with aging such as:
- Eye wrinkles
- Crow’s feet
- Scrunch lines on the bridge of the nose
- Vertical creases between the eyebrows
- Frown lines in the middle of the forehead between the eyebrows
In addition Dr. Lawrence Moy can use Botox to smooth your forehead, while also raising your eyebrows to open up your eyes for a fresher, younger look.
Used alone or when combined with dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse, and Evolence, Botox treatment can yield outstanding results and take years off your face!
How Is Botox Given?
Botox is a protein that is given in very small amounts through an injection. A skilled dermatologist with cosmetic expertise, Dr. Moy delivers Botox through a fine-gauge needle to ensure the injections are extremely precise and almost painless. Because the injections are given to very small areas, it can take several injections to treat all lines.
After your Botox procedure, you can return to your normal activities. You can even wear makeup to conceal any minor bruising.
How Does Botox Work?
Botox disables targeted facial muscles that create facial lines. Over time and because the muscles can no longer contract facial tissues, skin in the treated area begins to smooth out. Many people are amazed at the outstanding results they get from their Botox injections!
Results from Botox treatment become visible within 2 weeks from the time of treatment. Because the results are gradual, no one is likely to know you have had a cosmetic procedure.
Because results are not permanent, Botox injections must be repeated every few months. If you have repeated Botox injections in the same area, you might be able to wait longer between treatments.
Is Botox Safe?
Yes, Botox is safe! It has been used for many years to successfully treat medical conditions such as muscle spasms. If you are interested in having Botox to reduce or eliminate lines and wrinkles on your face, it is important to seek the expertise of a skilled doctor such as Dr. Moy who has indepth knowledge about facial muscles and how they work. Botox side effects are very rare and typically occur when Botox has been given by someone who is inexperienced and unskilled.
Who Can Have Botox?
If you are a man or woman who would like to refresh your appearance, you can have Botox! Many people treated with Botox are age 40 years or older; however, some people as young as age 30 have the procedure to prevent new lines and wrinkles from deepening. You are never too old for Botox treatment!
