Botox for Transgender Patients: How to make your face look more feminine

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.

What is Botox?

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.

How Can Botox for Transgender Patients Help with Facial Feminization?

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.

A Word of Caution and Possible Side Effects

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.

New protocols for office visits View Update

New protocols for office visits

May 12th, 2020

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic we have instituted many changes to your normal office visit. These changes have been introduced to protect everyone’s health and safety during your visit. All of our staff have been tested for COVID-19 and are negative. They are being monitored daily as well and will be practicing safety guidelines.

  1. If you are sick, do not come to the office. Call our front desk and we will reschedule your appointment promptly once you’re healthy again.
  2. Please wear a mask to your appointment.
  3. Do not bring someone else with you to your appointment. They will not be able to enter the office and wait for you. The only exceptions are for those who require medical assistance or translation assistance. Additionally, please do not bring any pets to the office with you.
  4. The day before your appointment, as in the past, you will be called to confirm your appointment. During that call you will be asked if you have any symptoms like fever, chills, muscle aches, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, loss of smell or taste. You will also be asked if you have been recently exposed to COVID-19 or have been traveling on a commercial airplane within the last 2 weeks.
  5. When you arrive for your appointment, please call the office from your car. A staff member will either tell you to come up to the office at that time or will ask you to wait in your car until they text you to come up. Before entering the front door of the office, you will be met by a staff member who will take your temperature with a no-touch forehead thermometer to be sure you don’t have a fever. They will again ask you if you have any symptoms of COVID-19. You will be given a mask if you don’t have one, as well as hand sanitizer since you touched the doorknob to enter the office. We will stagger appointments so that on the day of your treatment, you will not interact with any other patients.
  6. You will be taken directly to an exam room which has been cleaned and disinfected just prior to your arrival. There are also air filtration machines installed in each exam room which sterilize the air.
  7. Our medical assistants, who will be wearing N95 masks and protective eye shields, will take your history and prepare you for your visit. You will be asked to sign a new COVID-19 consent form in addition to any of the usual consent forms you may be used to.
  8. After your treatment, you will check out while in the exam room and any products you purchase will be brought to you. If you give us your credit card information the day before your appointment, we can handle the checkout without physically touching your card.
  9. Please try to make your follow up appointments during your office visit. With new scheduling changes and staggered appointments, last minute appointments may be difficult to schedule.
