Botox is by far the most popular cosmetic treatment in the U.S. It is quick and easy, requires no downtime, and the results can be stunning. Are you ready to try Botox for yourself? These 3 essentials will help you ensure that your 1st Botox experience is a great one. A younger looking you awaits!

Choose Your Injector Carefully

Surely you’ve heard jokes about frozen botox-santa-monicalooking faces after Botox. This i
sn’t a reality, but if you want to look natural, you do need to choose your injector carefully. Botox treatments aren’t one size fits all. Your facial anatomy, the location of your wrinkles, and other factors will determine how much Botox you need and where the injections should be placed. Working with a highly skilled, experienced injector helps to ensure the best possible results for your Botox treatment.

Both Dr. Amerian and Dr. Anterasian have been working with Botox since it first became available for cosmetic use more than 20 years ago. They have performed thousands of Botox treatments and know how to create the natural, stunning results you want.

Botox Doesn’t Work on All Wrinkles

Botox is very effective, but it doesn’t work on all wrinkles. Botox is made using a specialized form of botulinum toxin and it works by halting nerve impulses to the muscles that cause wrinkling. It is a great option for wrinkles caused by muscle movement like crow’s feet, lines between the eyebrows, forehead wrinkles, and fine lines around the mouth. Other wrinkles may benefit more from a dermal filler. We can help you decide if Botox is right for your problem areas.

Results Take Time to Appear

We have many first patients that are surprised when they don’t see results right after treatment. Botox works quickly, but it will take some time before you see your results. Don’t be discouraged if you don’t see visible change right after treatment. Give it 5-7 days and you’ll be amazed at how great you look. Botox requires no downtime after treatment and most treatments take 30 minutes or less.
