American society places a high premium on products that are extremely efficient, and are effective in terms of cost and convenience, which is why Botox injections have remained the most popular aesthetic enhancement treatment for the past six years. Botox is a prescription injectable derived from a neurotoxin (botulinum toxin type A), which is injected into the facial muscles, thereby reducing the appearance of moderate to severe fine lines and wrinkles and rejuvenating the overall appearance of the skin.
Botox injections are specifically formulated to treat and correct dynamic facial wrinkles, which are caused by the repetitive contraction of the facial muscles, the aging process, genetics, smoking, and sun exposure. Botox injections work by blocking the nerve impulses around the treatment site and preventing the contraction of the surrounding facial musculature, which effectively smoothes and refreshes the surface of the skin. New benefits of Botox injections are always being discovered; however, the most common aesthetic concerns Botox is utilized to address include: frown lines; eyebrow asymmetry; marionette lines; upper and lower lip creases; furrows or sagging in the forehead/brow region; facial scars; excessive sweating; vertical and horizontal neck creasing; and gummy smiles.
Although Botox is widely available at a number of treatment centers, improper injection techniques can result in a variety of aesthetic problems, such as: âfrozenâ or unnatural facial appearance, shiny foreheads, and visible ripples in the skin. For this reason, it is crucially important to have your Botox injections performed by a Board Certified plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Farbod Esmailian, whose private practice in Los Alamitos, CA serves patients in the greater Los Angeles area, including Newport Beach and Orange County. Dr. Esmailianâs extensive experience performing minimally invasive aesthetic enhancement procedures makes him an ideal choice for patients seeking to turn back the hands of time and minimize the appearance of facial wrinkles with Botox treatments.
BOTOX PROCEDURE DETAILS
Botox injections are quick, non-invasive treatments that can be performed in our office, after which you may return to your normal daily activities. The skin rejuvenating effects of your Botox injections typically peak about 7 days after the initial treatment, and these results last approximately 3-7 months (this varies among patients, and results can be extended with intermittent maintenance injections). Skin-enhancing aesthetic treatments such as dermal fillers, laser skin resurfacing, and chemical peels, can be performed together with your Botox injections in order to maximize and intensify your results.
