Baby Botox: Taking Baby Steps with Botox Treatments

Posted on October 20, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

Fine lines and wrinkles give a tired appearance to the skin. The decision to start Botox treatments can be a difficult one for many people. Many are worried if Botox is too strong, and if the treatment will make their face look like it’s frozen. Botox is a very powerful medication, but with the experienced doctor injecting it you should not have problems expressing your emotions after the treatment.

Baby Botox is the moniker used to describe treatments that use fewer units of Botox than what is considered a norm. The practice of injecting only small doses of Botox is a conservative approach that can yield amazing results. During a treatment, the practitioner injects small amounts of Botox into forehead hyper-dynamic lines, which results in a softened appearance without jeopardizing patient’s ability to show their emotions. Baby Botox will require more frequent treatments, but you should expect each session to be priced substantially lower because Botox is priced per unit.

Botox: The Solution for Excessive Sweating

Posted on October 6, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

Everyone sweats. For the 7 million Americans suffering from hyperhidrosis, sweating can be such an unpleasant experience that it actually reduces their quality of life. Hyperhidrosis is a term used to describe a medical disorder in which the body perspires at an abnormally high rate, even if there are no physiological or mental triggers to elicit such response.

Deodorants and antiperspirants are the most common ways to reduce the odor and wetness associated with sweating, but these two over-the-counter products have very limited success when dealing with excessive underarm sweating. The active ingredient in antiperspirants is aluminum, but the concentration of the chemical in most commercial antiperspirants is simply not strong enough to handle hyperhidrosis.

Luckily, there is an affordable medical grade treatment, such as Botox, that can offer relief to patients suffering from excessive sweating. Although Botox is typically lauded for its wrinkle-fighting abilities, it is also a very effective treatment for hyperhidrosis. In fact, in clinical trials, Botox was shown to reduce sweating up to 80 percent for up to six months. Botox is so effective because it works by blocking the chemical signals that activate sweat glands, which prevents sweating in the first place.

The Most Common Reasons Men Choose Botox

Posted on September 5, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

Botox has become increasingly popular with men in recent years. The majority of men who opt for Botox injections are professionals between the ages of 35 and 65. Just as women, men choose Botox because they want to appear younger, but their biggest reason for choosing it is the desire to stay competitive in the workplace.

  • Areas round the eyes and forehead are the most common Botox injection sites for men.
  • Frown lines, also known as 11s, is another popular treatment area for men. These vertical lines between the eyebrows can create an angry or tired appearance.
  • Men who suffer from hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, have also seen the benefits of Botox. It can be used to treat underarms, face, feet, and palms.
  • Botox is a proven treatment option for migraines.

Would You Like to Have More Symmetrical Eyebrows? Botox Can Help!

Posted on August 16, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

As a prominent facial feature, eyebrows can play an important role in overall facial symmetry and attractiveness. Drooping eyebrows can make you appear tired or sad, while a more elevated brow portrays a youthful appearance.

How Botox Can Improve Eyebrow Symmetry?

Surgery used to be the only solution for asymmetrical eyebrows. These days, Botox can be used to raise the eyebrow higher up or even lower the brow, if so desired. Botox is injected directly into the appropriate muscle depending on whether the eyebrow needs to be lowered or lifted. Injecting Botox into the forehead will drop the eyebrow down, and injecting it into the “squinting muscles” will pull the eyebrow up.

Does it Really Work?

A medical practitioner with in depth knowledge of the muscles surrounding the eye will be able to create a noticeable difference using Botox, especially for those with moderate asymmetry. You will be able to see the results around 3 days after the treatment and they will last about 3-4 months.

Sure, It Makes You Look Younger, But is BOTOX Safe?

Posted on March 31, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

Most of us would love to look younger, but for many patients safety concerns prevent them from doing cosmetic procedures such as BOTOX.

The truth is, BOTOX is very safe and it’s universally recognized as a minimally invasive and effective treatment. Let’s try addressing some of your concerns regarding Botox injections:

Isn’t BOTOX a neurotoxin?

Yes. However, that does not mean that it is dangerous. BOTOX is a toxin produced by the bacteria called Clostridium botulinum. It relaxes facial muscles, which helps smooth wrinkles. The dose is tiny and the injections are very localized.

Will BOTOX make my face numb?

BOTOX doesn’t affect nerves that perceive sensations like touch, heat or cold. You should never lose feeling in the area that has been treated.

Does getting BOTOX hurt?

Most patients describe the sensation as a mild pinching. The procedure takes less than 20 minutes and discomfort is minimal.

Are there any side effects?

Occasional redness or mild swelling at the injection sites are most common side effects. This usually resolves within a few hours.

Is there anything I can do to reduce side effects?

A week before your BOTOX treatment, please avoid using Vitamin E, St. John’s Wort, aspirin and other NSAIDS such as Advil, for example. Taking these supplements and over the counter medications increases the risk of bruising. You should also avoid alcohol one week before and one week after your procedure. Also, please do not lie down for three to four hours or touch the area for about six hours after Botox injections.

Do Men Get BOTOX Too?

Posted on March 17, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

For years, many have assumed that BOTOX is something that only women do. And, it’s correct to an extent: only about seven percent of BOTOX patients are men. However, more and more men are getting interested in BOTOX. A few of the reasons:

Looking younger gives you a competitive edge.

Studies show that men who appear younger are more likely to get hired.

There’s less stigma attached to men getting cosmetic procedures.

In the past, it was considered effeminate for men to do cosmetic procedures. As women’s roles have changed, men have realized that they do not need to restrict themselves in this area.

BOTOX is quick and easy.

BOTOX can be administered in about 15 minutes and results are usually seen within 10-14 days. Very few patients experience side effects, and the ones that do occur are mild.

BOTOX is cost-effective.

While prices vary throughout the country, average price for a unit in Los Angeles is $9-$14. Most patients need approximately 20 units to eliminate frown lines.

Get Your Botox from the Right Provider

Posted on March 16, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

Botox injections are one of the most common cosmetic procedures worldwide. However, just because they are readily available does not mean that every practitioner who performs them is the same. There’s a lot to consider when you are trying to pick a provider who could give you great results with minimal risk:

1. Do not go to a home Botox party.
A party is not likely to be a sterile environment, so it brings a risk of infection. If you are at someone’s home instead of a licensed facility, you will not be able to get help quickly enough in the unlikely (but still possible) event of a complication or an allergic reaction.

2. Aestheticians are not permitted to give Botox in California.
Here in Los Angeles, we have some of the most stringent rules in the nation to assure that Botox and other cosmetic treatments are performed safely. If your provider is not a physician or a nurse working under the supervision of one, he or she is not legally
qualified to give you Botox treatments.

3. Pick the practitioner people trust.
Study reviews before settling on a Botox provider. A good practitioner will have positive reviews from a large number of patients, going back several years.
