Try as we might, we can’t avoid fine lines and wrinkles forever. Factors such as the environment and life take a toll on our appearance, drying out the skin and creating an aged appearance. At some point, the routine of over-the-counter creams will begin to lose its effectiveness. When that time comes, people look to the professionals in the field for the answers to keeping our skin smooth and youthful. We are proud to offer BOTOX as a treatment option for your anti-aging needs. Contact us today at the Kagan Institute to schedule your appointment with us in the Los Angeles area today!
What Is BOTOX?
BOTOX® is an FDA-approved treatment designed to target the main cause of fine lines and wrinkles in the skin. As we make facial expressions, such as smiling or laughing, specific muscles contract. These contractions create grooves in the skin, that become more prevalent over time. BOTOX targets these muscles and restricts their movement to prevent the creation of deep creases in the skin. The results of this treatment can last from 2-6 months, but the average results last for approximately 3-4 months. Results will vary based on each person and their individual treatment plan.
What Can I Expect?
When you come in for your consultation, our professionals will examine your skin and listen to your goals for the treatment. From there, they will develop a personalized treatment plan to meet your skin care needs. Your BOTOX session will be performed in the comfort of one of our California offices.
The treatment itself is a series of injections to the targeted area. The BOTOX injections use a special formula designed to help relax the muscles in the treatment area and help reduce the signs of aging on the surface of your skin. You will notice the results improving in the weeks following your treatment as the muscles remain relaxed.
