Botox® is one of the most exciting and revolutionary anti-aging products available today. The purified form of neuromuscular toxin literally stops wrinkle-forming muscles in their tracks, giving you a tight, smooth facial appearance that looks years younger. Some patients have gone so far as to compare the results to those of brow lift or eyelid rejuvenation. Treatment is quick and convenient, and can often be scheduled during a lunch break.
Facial fillers such as Juvéderm®, Voluma, Restylane®, Perlane®, Radiesse® or Belotero can improve and erase the appearance of wrinkles and lines and make you look younger and beautiful.
Dr. Ali Sajjadian is one of the most requested Botox® providers in the Orange County area. With his artistic eye and technical acumen, he can be trusted to deliver results that always look natural and beautiful.
What Happens During Botox® or Facial Filler Treatment?
Botox® treatment is usually performed in our office using topical numbing agent. Treatment usually lasts about 20 minutes or less, depending on the size of the treatment area and the amount of Botox® needed.
Dr. Sajjadian will evaluate your facial structures to determine where to place the Botox® injections. First, he cleanses the area and prepares it for treatment. He uses a very fine needle to inject small amounts of Botox® into the muscles that contract to form wrinkles and fine lines. The Botox® product blocks the nerve signals that cause the muscles to contract, temporarily smoothing lines and wrinkles. The injections are not typically painful, though you may feel a slight prick.
Depending on the areas of your face that need rejuvenation, Dr. Sajjadian may inject the product between your eyebrows, along your forehead or around the outside of your eyes (into the crow’s feet).
The common areas of correction are lips, nasolabial and facial folds, as well as lines and wrinkles around the eyes.
After administering the injections, Dr. Sajjadian may provide an ice pack to soothe any discomfort or prevent swelling.
“I have worked out all my life, and after 2 children, I couldn’t work off the fat despite consistent exercise. I had never had a surgery like this before. When I came to Dr. Sajjadian, he instantly made me feel comfortable. Almost 4 months later I feel happier and I see the results, with minimal scarring. My stomach looks like it did before I was pregnant.”
“Dr. Sajjadian takes the time to make sure you understand what he’s doing and why. He’s a conservative doctor who doesn’t like to rush thing, because he wants the best results for you as possible. He’s kind, caring, and thorough. I would recommend Dr. Sajjadian to anyone who is interested in considering getting a tummy tuck.”

“I trusted Dr. Sajjadian as I was able to see some of his cases beforehand, and the results were amazing. The Dr. made me very comfortable with what I wanted done. When it came to the surgery, I had very little bruising and swelling, and within 3/4 days I felt great. I have been back to the office since and would use Dr. Sajjadian again if I need any more work done.”
Recovery and Aftercare
After your Botox® treatment, you may experience minor redness or swelling, but these side effects will quickly subside. You will be able to return to your normal activities almost immediately, although it’s best to refrain from strenuous activity or exercise for the rest of the day. You will also need to avoid massaging or rubbing the treated area, as this could cause the Botox® to spread to other areas of your face and cause complications.
