Your transformation is nearly complete, but you want your face to tell the story of your newly attained gender identity. If your forehead is too rounded, or if you have a square or lantern jaw, cosmetic surgery may be an option for you. However, if you have misgivings about going under the knife, there is a non-invasive procedure available: Botox for transgender patients.
Botox is a drug refined from the naturally occurring toxins produced by Clostridium botulinum, a bacterium. It works by relaxing muscles adjacent to its injection location.
The best way for a transgender woman to control the shape and look of her face without surgery is to combine Botox with other techniques for a more feminine look. Our Beverly Hills aesthetic injection specialists are familiar with all these techniques and can advise you on the best combination for your particular case.
Botox injections can raise the eyebrows and, when coupled with dermal fillers, they can also hide the bony ridge of the brow that is prevalent in most men. These injections last for three to six months on average, and are easily replicated and maintained with repeated treatments. A transgender woman can grow long, wispy bangs and wear contoured makeup that includes fuller eyelashes to further her feminine appearance. Botox and dermal fillers can also soften and contour a lantern jaw and the lines of the face. These treatments similarly last three to six months and are easily repeated. These techniques can allow you to maintain a feminine appearance as a transgender woman while abstaining from surgery.
Shame and secrecy can lead LGBT individuals to unsanctioned "Botox Parties," especially in the transgender community. Many providers at these parties aren't trained as aesthetic injection specialists. Instead, they may dole out injections of mystery substances with no regulation or supervision. It's crucial to put your trust in a reputable institution for your own health and continued well being. The Lasky Aesthetics and Laser Center is one of those institutions. You can rest assured that, as a transgender woman, you will receive our non-judgmental care and understanding. Reputable institutions will also be able to explain any side effects and risks beforehand and determine if Botox and other aesthetic treatments are right for you.
Lasky Aesthetics and Laser Center is willing, able and happy to offer the transgender community this level of care.
