Our Personal Approach To Botox Treatment

Our office has been treating patients with Botox since it first became available as a wrinkle reducer nearly 20 years ago. As a result, we have performed thousands of Botox procedures and have extensive experience with Botox treatment. This has allowed us to develop a very personal approach to the use of this medication.



Our most important consideration with Botox treatment is that the result be natural. The goal is to achieve a relaxed and rejuvenated appearance. We want to achieve a more refreshed look by reducing lines and wrinkles.



In our office, Botox treatment is always individualized, and based upon what each person needs. It is not a “one size fits all” treatment. Botox treatment begins with a careful examination of the face, both at rest and with movement. Lines and wrinkles in the face are studied in order to understand how Botox would improve them. We think clearly about what areas should be treated, and equally importantly, about what areas should not be treated. Only after this planning is completed can the treatment be properly given.

The treatment consists of a series of injections of minute quantities of Botox into the skin. It is preferable to put smaller amounts of Botox into a larger number of injection sites because the final result is more natural looking. By relaxing the underlying facial muscles, lines and wrinkles in the face are reduced, giving a more relaxed and rejuvenated appearance.

We regularly treat Botox patients from Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Pacific Palisades, Malibu, Brentwood, and Beverly Hills. We welcome all patients to our office who would like a more personalized and individualized approach to their Botox treatments.



Start Getting Ready for Summer!  Have your CoolSculpting or TruSculpting in March to See Results Before the Summer Swim Season – And Receive a Free Botox Treatment!

By now, most of our patients have become familiar with the CoolSculpting procedure.  The CoolSculpting procedure reduces fat by freezing it for one hour.  However, many of our patients may not yet be familiar with the new TruSculpting procedure.  TruSculpting works by heating the fatty tissues for four minutes to temperatures that are high enough to result in the therapeutic reduction of fat, but not so high as to be uncomfortable or painful.  Heating the fat for four minutes induces the body’s natural systems to break down the fat cells in the treated areas.  The process of natural fat cell reduction takes about two months to complete.



Ideal candidates for the CoolSculpting and TruSculpting procedures have discrete and localized fat bulges on the abdomen, love handles, inner or outer thighs, and back. Both of these treatments result in noticeable and natural looking fat reduction in the treated areas.  This in turn results in an improved and more attractive body contour. There is absolutely no downtime following either a CoolSculpting procedure or a TruSculpting procedure.



It takes two to three months for the final result to become visible after either of these procedures.  For this reason, any of our patients who wish to reduce their fat bulges before the summer (without having surgery or liposuction) should have their CoolSculpting or TruSculpting procedures performed soon.  That way, the results will be visible by the time we head into the summer months.



We invite any of our patients who may be interested in having a non-surgical fat reducing procedure to call our office at 310-829-9396 and make an appointment for a complementary consultation.  At the consultation, we will determine which of the two non-surgical non-invasive fat reducing procedures is most appropriate for a particular patient.



During the months of March and April, we will also give to our CoolSculpting and TruSculpting patients a free treatment with Botox to one area of the face, a $350 value. This special offer will remain in effect until April 30, 2012.
