HOW BOTOX® COSMETIC WORKS
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a great option if you experience mild to moderate facial aging and would prefer to avoid the extensive plastic surgery associated with a facelift. The best way to determine whether BOTOX® Cosmetic is right for you is to speak with Dr. Andre Berger in person.
Your muscles contract whenever you smile, frown or make any other facial expression. Through this constant muscle movement, the skin becomes less elastic and draws together, resulting in the formation of wrinkles and frown lines.
When BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into your facial region, it blocks your nerve impulses from activating the muscle contractions that cause wrinkles to develop. As a result, your skin will appear relaxed and smoother.
BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments in LA and Beverly Hills are fast and virtually painless. The procedure only takes about 10 to 15 minutes, and there is virtually no recovery time.
Most patients usually see an improvement in the appearance of wrinkles within three to five days, although results will vary. The effects of your BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment last approximately three to five months. With repeated treatment, you can see longer-lasting effects.
