Botox is no longer a mystical word. In fact, in the public psyche it is probably the most common procedure that comes to people’s mind whenever the subject of cosmetic surgery pops up. We all know famous faces that are used as the poster figures for what happens when people go overboard with dermal fillers, but the thing about Botox is that when it is done right by the most trained and experienced professionals, you can’t even notice it. All that is left is a beautiful face that looks naturally youthful and invigorated, and there is much more Botox in Los Angeles than you probably even imagined!
Have you ever considered Botox for yourself? If so, then it is always best to be as educated as you can be before making contact with a cosmetic surgery clinic. To help you out with this, here are some answers to many of the most frequently asked questions about Botox in Los Angeles.
- What is Botox?
Put simply, Botox is a liquid filler procedure that provides temporary erasure of moderate to severe frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet. From start to finish, the treatment takes an average of ten minutes and there is very minimal recovery or downtime. Results can start to be noticed within 24 hours.
- How much Botox research was done?
Botox is backed up by more than fifteen years’ worth of extensive published studies. It is one of the most researched procedures of its kind in the world, and it has been approved for use in almost 100 countries across the globe. Positive reports on the efficacy of Botox have been vouched for in more than 500 peer reviewed medical journal articles.
- How does it work?
Botox works by targeting the repetitive muscle contractions that occur to make natural wrinkles, like frowning, squinting, eyebrow raising etc. Solution is injected into these areas and the Botox temporarily reduces muscle activity, resulting in a smoother, less wrinkled looking around the eyes and forehead.
- Will it look unnatural?
Sensible, experienced Botox treatments will not look unnatural. The horror story photos that you see are never on the recommendation of the surgeon, but rather people who have made the personal decision to take the procedure too far against advice.
- Is Botox only for women?
Though beauty procedures like this have historically been more associated with women, a large number of men are also opting for Botox injections in the 21st century and with no stigma attached. There is no specific gender preference for Botox; it is widely available and a good option for both men and women.
