Let's face it: wrinkles are a pain. The worst part is they're created by our own expression and animation, constantly contracting muscles to smile, laugh or look surprised. In order to stay wrinkle free, none of us can be expected to maintain an expressionless appearance.
Instead, cosmetic muscle relaxers are perfect for this purpose. When used expertly, they can target the exact muscles responsible for wrinkles in the forehead or between the brows, all without hindering our ability to be as expressive as ever.
At the Lasky Aesthetics and Laser Center, we are proud to provide our Los Angeles BOTOX patients with a tasteful, effective approach to cosmetic muscle relaxers. By taking the time to use muscle relaxers to highlight your natural beauty, we strive to provide the best BOTOX treatment in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles. Read below to find out more or give us a call with any questions.
BOTOX is the most popular non surgical cosmetic treatment in the world. In 2014 alone, over 5 million Americans received this simple yet remarkable treatment and the trend is definitely up. BOTOX has a stellar safety record when performed by trained professionals.
BOTOX is derived from bacteria that temporarily blocks nerve activity. Besides its use as an effective wrinkle eraser, it is safely used for several medical conditions such as:
Millions of people are enjoying the benefits that BOTOX brings to their lives and Los Angeles residents are no different. Many of Lasky Aesthetics clients return to the Beverly Hills center every 4 to 6 months for a BOTOX touch up, particularly at the onset of the holiday party season or before important social events.
Cosmetic muscle relaxers are injectable medications that block nerve transmission to specific muscles, preventing those muscles from contracting and creating wrinkles in the face.
By using a very tiny needle and precise injection techniques, the practitioners at the Lasky Aesthetics & Laser Center can deliver cosmetic muscle relaxers with minimal discomfort, if any.
Further, with decades of experience under their belt, they can relax target muscles while keeping expressive muscles active. This means that your face will still be completely dynamic, just without the creation of unsightly wrinkles.
At the Lasky Aesthetics & Laser Center in Beverly Hills, we offer two muscle relaxers: BOTOX and Dysport. Our doctors agree that these two products represent the highest standard of cosmetic excellence. When you come see us for BOTOX in Los Angeles, we will review the two products thoroughly so that the correct one is used for your case.
These two wrinkle smoothing products are really very similar. They both are used to relax crow’s feet, horizontal lines on the forehead and vertical frown lines. Both products smooth fine lines and wrinkles without interfering with natural expression.
Dysport is found to work a little faster than BOTOX; 2 to 5 days as opposed to the usual 4 to 7 days experienced by BOTOX clients. Dysport also tends to disperse into a wider area, which makes it an ideal treatment for areas such as the forehead but not an ideal product for others.
There is still much debate on which product lasts longer and whether more Dysport is needed to achieve the same result with BOTOX. Both products enjoy a high safety record and both can be used elsewhere in the body.
Whether Dysport or BOTOX is the injectable used, success depends on precise injection of just the right amount of product to achieve the result. At Lasky Aesthetics, our Los Angeles clients can be confident knowing their procedure will only be done by a licensed and trained professional with years of experience with injectable products.
Cosmetic muscle relaxers are used in a very specific fashion, only treating the top third of the face. That being said, our practitioners use them to correct the following cosmetic issues:
Treatment with Botulinum toxin type A (BOTOX) was the most popular minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure in 2016. There are several excellent reasons why this non-surgical treatment continues to gain in popularity of use, including:
Compared to a variety of surgical procedures, BOTOX is very cost-effective. BOTOX is a non-invasive treatment, which means IV sedation is not required, also keeping costs down.
When it comes to actual pricing, a BOTOX treatment can vary based on the expertise of the treatment provider and what you are trying to achieve. Typically, for forehead lines, your costs can range from $300 to $700.
When aftercare instructions are followed, the recovery from a BOTOX treatment is pretty simple. Immediately following your injection, normal activities can be resumed. If you participate in any strenuous exercises, wait 24 hours. You will also need to avoid lying down for several hours post-treatment.
BOTOX can create beautiful and very natural results. You do not need to fear that your face will look frozen. The skill and expertise of your injector is the most critical factor in the success of your results. At Lasky Aesthetics, we are known for our consistently natural-looking results.
When considering BOTOX, it can be a challenge to pinpoint just how much BOTOX you will need and how many injections it will take to achieve the results you desire. The right amount is not the same for everyone, even in the same area. A first BOTOX treatment should be performed conservatively.
The effects of BOTOX can last from three to six months. When the treatment wears off, the lines and wrinkles will once again appear, although less severe.
Possible side effects of a BOTOX treatment include swelling, redness, and possible bruising around the treated area. Some symptoms may indicate an allergic reaction to the botulinum toxin. We must be informed of any health problems you have. Certain medications could give rise to side effects.
A resistance to BOTOX can build if you have been using the injectable for many years. When the body develops an immune response to BOTOX and stops responding to treatment, it is time to look at other options. There are several safe and effective alternatives.
Patients 18 years of age and older can choose to get BOTOX treatments. BOTOX can be used for a variety of medical conditions and is considered very safe.
Instatox is a style of injecting that instantly smooths out wrinkles underneath the eyes, cheeks, mouth and chin. It can also create a neck and lid lift. Instatox can smooth out stubborn lip and mouth lines that develop from facial animation and sun damage. Other benefits of Instatox are improvement to facial flushing and decreasing in pore size.
It is different than our traditional Beverly Hills BOTOX treatment in that it works instantly— No more waiting two weeks for your botox to kick in.
Some people have concerns about BOTOX and are worried that treatment will leave their face looking unnatural. Microtox is a custom approach for BOTOX treatments, in which the product is injected in very tiny quantities to smooth lines and wrinkles while maintaining your natural expressiveness.
Low dose BOTOX treatments, or “Microtox,” are an artful approach to the use of BOTOX and involve placing a series of tiny injections to lift and smooth lines and wrinkles while keeping your facial structure naturally mobile and expressive.
Also called “baby BOTOX,” this treatment uses less product than the traditional treatments. To produce the maximum results requires skill and technique. The precise points of injection make it possible to use much less BOTOX – at lower cost.
While BOTOX injections should never result in a “frozen” look – and this outcome is simply related to getting treatments from a less qualified injector – a smaller quantity of the product can smooth the face but maintain greater facial flexibility.
At Lasky Aesthetics & Laser Center, we use the most advanced injection techniques and we are known for achieving a natural look in both traditional BOTOX treatments and in Microtox treatments.
While Microtox requires less BOTOX, costing you less, the results diminish more quickly, and you will need to have maintenance injections more often than with traditional BOTOX treatments.
Many younger people are choosing Microtox to help keep the facial skin smooth for years longer and many choose to start these treatments as early as in their 20s. Microtox can help you prevent the development of wrinkles and lines as you enter your 30s.
Why not take advantage of modern aesthetic technology? Our highly-skilled injectors can help you stay looking fresh and youthful with a range of anti-aging treatments, including Microtox.
BOTOX is a versatile treatment, not just for relaxing lines between the eyes, forehead lines, and crow’s feet. It can be used to improve and enhance the following:
Women are not the only ones who can benefit from BOTOX injections. At Lasky Aesthetics & Laser Center, we offer BOTOX treatments in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills for men who want to soften and improve moderate to severe lines between the brows and smooth lines around the eyes.
The minimally-invasive nature of BOTOX injections, with fast treatments and no downtime make it a popular procedure among men with busy schedules who want to look and feel their best. Learn more about Botox for men.
I was kind of scared to try BOTOX, only because the tabloids have such a habit of showing celebrities who’ve overdone it. However, a friend who came to Lasky told me that they only use it in moderation, and I have to say she looked really great after her procedure. So I gave it a shot. Cristina was super reassuring and immediately set me at ease. After the procedure I looked like, well, myself. Just a younger, more refreshed version. I’m really happy I took the plunge, and I’m extremely happy with the results.
