Experienced providers of BOTOX in Sherman Oaks
BOTOX is among the most widely known, and safest, non-surgical cosmetic treatments, with over 6 million individuals going for it each year. Our BOTOX Sherman Oaks medical spa treatments help prevent the appearance of lines. If you have any lines on your face or neck, BOTOX will prevent them from getting deeper. That is true for areas around the neck and face. The most frequent areas treated with BOTOX are the lines around and in the frown, eyes, and forehead. The best thing about these treatments is that they require little BOTOX and are, therefore, an affordable way of rejuvenating the face.
What is BOTOX?
BOTOX is a neurotoxin derived from Clostridium Botulinum – an organism existing in natural environments in a non-toxic and inactive form. Originally developed to treat muscle disorders, BOTOX helps with the reduction of wrinkles and fine lines by decreasing activity in the underlying muscles. Individuals also rely on BOTOX® injections to treat migraines, excessive sweating, and muscular disorders. It’s also used to treat bowel and bladder disorders.
What areas of the face and neck can be treated with a BOTOX injection?
Due to its ability to target wrinkles and fine lines across the forehead, around the eyes, and in between eyebrows, BOTOX can weaken the overactive facial muscles temporarily for a relaxed and more rested youthful appearance.
In the consultation process, you will have to discuss your cosmetic goals and determine the source of the wrinkles on your face. The practitioner will help you decide whether BOTOX Cosmetic can help you attain your individual goals.
Who are the candidates for BOTOX?
Most people wanting to get rid of their frown lines or crow’s feet are good candidates for BOTOX Cosmetic, including women and men. adult individuals under the age of 65 and in good overall health can benefit from these procedures.
Pregnant women or breastfeeding moms, as well as anyone who’s allergic to any ingredient found in BOTOX, or similar products, should avoid the injections.
How long does it take for BOTOX to take effect?
BOTOX works by stopping or slowing the activities existing between the muscles and nerves that cause contraction. The chemical onset varies from one application to the other and from one individual to another. Results might appear immediately, but in most cases, they take time.
Also, the results depend on the treated part, the depth of wrinkles, and several other factors. The affected nerves have binding sites that allow chemicals to adhere to the surfaces and inhibit activities. If your nerves have many binding sites, the results will start appearing within a short time. Generally, you should start seeing results within 24 to 72 hours. Some patients do not see any results within the first five days.
Are there any risks associated with BOTOX?
When getting a BOTOX treatment, there could be some minor side effects. The most significant risks include pain, headache, and flu-like symptoms. In some rare cases, you might develop a drooping eyebrow area or lid. The cosmetic provider has to start by assessing your eyelids before giving any injections because you might not be a good candidate if you have a very droopy eyelid or one held up by constant arching. Ptosis refers to severe drooping of eyelids and affects around 5 percent of patients. Complications rarely occur and resolve with time.
Even though it is very uncommon, some patients experience allergic reactions to the injected sites. If you believe that you have sensitive skin, you should begin with an allergy test before you undergo our BOTOX Sherman Oaks treatment. Overall, you should expect great results within five days.
