Botox® is the top minimally invasive cosmetic procedure performed in the United States. Nearly 7.5 million people receive Botox injections every year to minimize fine lines and wrinkles and achieve a more youthful look.
At Baheri Wellness Centre in Beverly Hills, California, Dr. Mehran Baheri and his impeccably trained team of professionals are experienced in providing Botox injections that are carefully placed and spaced to provide optimal results and a more youthful visage.
Botox is short for botulinum toxin A, the active ingredient in the serum most commonly used to treat lines and wrinkles. Botox is one of the longest-used cosmetic injectables, and it was approved by the FDA in 2002 for treating facial lines.
Botox works by relaxing the muscles that cause frown lines, specifically by blocking the nerve impulses to those muscles and preventing them from contracting. You’ll still be able to smile, speak, and create normal facial expressions, but the lines across your forehead and around your eyes will be much less visible.
The Botox process
First, Dr. Baheri consults with you about the specific look you hope to achieve. This information helps our team plan where the Botox will be administered. A fine needle is used to inject the Botox.
The injections may cause a small pricking sensation, but your provider can make you more comfortable by administering a numbing cream or ice pack to the treatment area. You get several injections, and the entire process only takes about ten minutes.
Within a day or two, the results of your Botox injections become noticeable. Fine lines and wrinkles will be minimized, and your skin will look smoother and more youthful. The effects of Botox last about 4 months, and you can repeat the process to keep your younger, vibrant look.
How has Botox stayed so popular?
Botox has stood the test of time, and remains the most popular choice for people seeking minimally invasive cosmetic enhancement.
Botox is safe
Botox has been a safe and effective solution for millions of people. Side effects of Botox are rare and typically consist only of slight swelling at the injection site.
Botox is fast
The effects of Botox can be seen after one application. There’s no need for sedation or extended healing time, and you can get back to regular activities immediately after the appointment.
Botox is affordable
The costs of Botox are much less than cosmetic surgery, even with repeated injections over the years. There are also cost savings when it comes to recovery time, since you don’t have to take off work.
