Are you thinking about Botox®? This powerful anti-aging treatment is an excellent option for smoothing wrinkles caused by muscle activity. It can stop wrinkle development in its tracks for decades of smoother skin. If you’re thinking about Botox®, keep reading for answers to common questions. If you still have questions, call and schedule a consultation with double board certified surgeon Dr. Sajjadian.
What Is Botox®?
Botox® is a purified form of a neuromuscular toxin called botulinum toxin. It works by relaxing muscles that cause certain types of wrinkles. We often use it to treat crow’s feet, smile lines, frown lines, etc. Botox® can be used on its own or paired with dermal fillers and other non-invasive treatments. Botulinum toxin treatments are the most popular minimally invasive cosmetic treatment in the U.S. year after year.
How Long Does Botox® Treatment Take?
Our patients love how quick and easy Botox® treatments are. Many come in for treatment on their lunch break and return to work immediately after treatment is complete. In general, the procedure takes 20 minutes or less with no downtime.
I Want to Ensure Natural Looking Botox® Results. What Should I Do?
Botox® can provide stunning, natural looking results when used correctly. The key to success is choosing your injector carefully. Nurses administer the treatment in some practices, but not here. Dr. Sajjadian performs all Botox® treatments himself. In fact, he is one of the most requested Botox® providers in all of Orange County. Choosing a doctor who is well known for his artistic sensibilities and a strong understanding of facial anatomy is essential. Those who use Botox® often may have more experience achieving natural results with the product.
Do the Injections Hurt?
Many first-time Botox® patients worry about trying an injectable treatment. However, most find the experience to be quick and easy. We can use a topical numbing agent to increase your comfort. As the injections are placed, you may feel a slight prick, but the treatment is not painful. After the injections, Dr. Sajjadian may provide an ice pack to ease discomfort and reduce swelling.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Botox® treatments typically last 3-5 months, but can be maintained with regular retreatment. We’ll create a treatment schedule with you to ensure that you always look rejuvenated and relaxed.
