Are you an ideal candidate for Botox treatment?
With all the different cosmetic options out there that can smooth, brighten, and improve your skin you may be wondering which one is the best option. Many adults are turning to our Torrance, CA, cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Hala Koudsi for Botox treatment. Botox is a great option for targeting those early signs of aging.
How does Botox work?
Botox is a series of thin cosmetic injectables that contain a purified, medical-grade form of botulinum toxin A, a neurotoxin that temporarily interrupts signals from the muscles to the brain to prevent muscle contractions. As a result, dynamic lines and wrinkles are smoothed away.
Botox is great for treating:
- Smile lines around the mouth and nose
- Frown lines of the forehead and between the eyebrows
- Crow’s feet, or lines at the corners of the eyes
- Creasing of the skin
Any lines or wrinkles that form on your face when smiling or frowning can be reduced or eliminated through Botox treatment.
What goes into getting Botox?
Getting Botox is simple and easy. Since the needles used to administer Botox are very thin most people feel nothing more than a slight pinch that goes away in a couple of seconds. The number of injections will depend on the area or areas you wish to treat. It only takes a couple of minutes to get Botox treatment and there is no recovery time so you can go back to work immediately after.
Are results from Botox permanent?
Botox results usually last about 3-4 months but you may still see results for as long as six months; however, if you love your results and want them to last longer you can talk with our Torrance, CA, dermatologist about getting regular Botox treatments once a year to keep your appearance fresh and youthful.
From medical dermatology to cosmetic treatments, Dr. Koudsi and her cosmetic team offer a full range of dermatological services in and around Torrance, CA, to help you feel more confident in your own skin.
