Q: Where does Botox come from? Like many medications, botox is created by nature, not invented by man. Specifically, it is derived by a microorganism called clostridium botulinum, much like penicillin was discovered through a mold microorganism called penicillium notatum.
Q: What is Los Angeles Botox? Botox in LA is a prescription injection that reduces severe frown and expression lines. This is a temporary anti-aging treatment recommended for men and women from 18 to 65 years of age. Los Angeles Botox is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that should be administered by a trained and experienced healthcare professional. Results vary on an individual basis.
Q: What Can I Expect from a Treatment of Botox in LA? Clients normally experience minimal discomfort from Botox in LA, and Sunset provides free numbing cream to patients prior to the injections. The overall treatment can run from 10 to 30 minutes.
Q: Is the Botox Los Angeles Treatment Painful? You may experience minimal discomfort from a Los Angeles Botox treatment, which can be likened to a pin prick or an insect bite. The pain experienced is marginal, and many patients don’t experience any pain at all from the treatment, especially when a numbing cream is used to prepare the injection site.
Q: What Results Will I See With Los Angeles Botox? After using Los Angeles Botox, the patient can expect to see an immediate improvement in deep and repetitive expression lines in the complexion. For some, full results can take up to a week to appear. The overall results will last from 4 to 6 months. Results vary on an individual basis.
Q: How Long Will Los Angeles Botox Last? Los Angeles Botox lasts anywhere from 3 to 6 months, although the results will vary on a case-by-case basis depending on the number of expression lines that need to be treated. Results can also be maintained through periodic follow-up treatments.
Q: Can I Still Make Facial Expressions After Treatment? One of the common misconceptions with Botox in Los Angeles is that the face will have a frozen appearance after treatment. The patient can expect to see visible results, but the injection of Los Angeles Botox will not dramatically change the appearance of the complexion or make the face look frozen. Deep muscle tension and activity responsible for certain undesireable facial lines will be reduced so that the client will look fresh and relaxed without looking as if a cosmetic treatment has been done.
Q: Who Should Not Use Los Angeles Botox? Botox Los Angeles is not recommended for any patients that have an allergy to Botox, a skin infection at the site of the injection, a muscle or nerve disease, breathing issues, swallowing issues, bleeding issues, an upcoming surgery, previous facial surgery, weak forehead muscles, drooping eyelids, or are pregnant or breast-feeding.
Q: What Will Happen If I Stop Botox in LA Treatments? If a patient does not continue Los Angeles Botox treatments, their expression lines will return to their previous state over time. The best results from the use of Botox in LA are sustained through ongoing maintenance treatments to achieve a youthful and relaxed appearance and actually help prevent the deepening of undesired wrinkles.
