Neurotoxins can be natural or synthetic substances that produce temporary muscle relaxation. When injected, they reduce your lines and wrinkles in many ways depending on the type of neurotoxin and how it works. All of the neurotoxin types used at Harris Facial Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics are also FDA-approved. Botox has a solid reputation for its efficacy and easy administration and continues to be one of the most popular injectables among individuals seeking minimally invasive wrinkle reduction.
Botox works by temporarily preventing your muscles from moving in the injected area through the use of a toxin called OnabotulinumtoxinA. It’s also used in many medical conditions, such as migraines, excessive sweating, eye twitching, and many other cases. Botox is temporary and typically lasts three to four months, depending on the dose and where it is used.
By removing your wrinkles and lines, you’ll be able to have a natural look with a non-surgical procedure and almost no pain. There also won’t be any scars or post-procedure marks. In a short period of time, you’ll look and feel young, fresh, and confident. Furthermore, people experiencing migraines and even depression have been shown to have improvement after Botox injections.
Our Beverly Hills Botox patients are typically great candidates as long as they're healthy and don’t have any medical conditions that would preclude the use of Botox. You should also avoid treatment if you are pregnant or taking certain medications for muscle spasms.
The consultation is an essential part of your treatment, allowing you to discuss your specific goals and get personalized recommendations on achieving the best results. You will have the opportunity to ask any question you may have and get a clear understanding of the treatment, any aftercare requirements, and the expected results. Botox is a good choice for patients who want visible improvements without the invasiveness of surgery.
Before your procedure, you should review your medical history with Dr. Harris. Your face should be clean and clear of any makeup. Once this is done, you’ll be injected in the appropriate areas using several injections. Depending on the amount used, the whole procedure typically takes no more than 20 minutes, and our Beverly Hills Botox patients will be set to go without any recovery time.
After the procedure, you may feel a slight numbness. You may also feel a little discomfort in the treated areas. Any discomfort will normally go away within an hour or less, and the results can vary depending on the type of toxin used. Your full Botox results take about 5-10 days to show. Typically, the result lasts for 3-4 months and can be repeated as desired. Avoid rubbing your injection site so that the injection doesn’t spread and cause undesired side effects.
Botox injections are super safe and easy, with almost immediate results. You will be able to return to your everyday life and routine with no recovery time needed, and the results are worth it. Schedule your consultation with Harris Facial Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics today!
Most people report little to no pain during Botox treatment. Dr. Harris has many different options to help reduce sensitivity, as well as a very gentle hand when injecting.
Generally, the risks of Botox are mild and tend to resolve on their own. Headache, eyelid swelling, and nausea are the most common side effects.
The wrinkle-relaxing effects of Botox typically last from three to four months. Touch-up treatments can be performed to maintain results. Regular Botox treatments may help slow the formation of new wrinkles while also training the muscles to contract less over time.
It is not recommended that you have Botox while pregnant or breastfeeding due to a lack of research on its safety during these times.
No, you will not need to have anyone drive you home since no general anesthesia is required for Botox injections. By following a few simple precautions, you will be able to return to most of your regular activities right away. Do not lie down for a few hours or rub the treatment area; this prevents the injectable from spreading beyond the targeted areas. You will also need to avoid strenuous activities for the first 24 hours.
After getting Botox, it's a good idea to wait around four to six hours before putting on makeup or skincare products in the treated area. This helps the Botox settle properly into your muscles and reduces the chance of it spreading where you don't want it to. During this time, be careful not to press too hard or massage the treated area too vigorously, as it could affect the results.
There is no right age to get Botox. Many people benefit from starting treatments in their 20s or 30s to prevent wrinkles from forming, while others start in their 40s or later, with treatments helping to address existing lines and creases.
Yes, it's common to combine Botox with other cosmetic treatments like dermal fillers, chemical peels, or laser therapy to achieve a comprehensive rejuvenation effect. Combining treatments can address different aspects of aging. We can help you select a treatment regimen that promotes your most vibrant complexion.
The cost of Botox varies depending on the type and amount of injectable used as well as the particular area you are treating. You can discuss your options with Dr. Harris to obtain the full estimated costs and set up a payment plan if needed.
