BOTOX: The Perfect Place to Start

Posted on August 20, 2013 by Ella Fedonenko

The good news about the natural aging process is that it’s natural, and a process. It doesn’t sneak up on you overnight. You don’t look into the mirror one morning and, suddenly, see lines and wrinkles.

When you do begin to notice that there’s something slightly different about your appearance – a frown or laugh line, a crinkle around your eyes where only a twinkle used to be – today there is something you can do about it.

With BOTOX Cosmetic, the grand-daddy of all non-invasive cosmetic procedures, it’s simple, fast, affordable and looks as natural as the process you’re reversing.

Since 2002, when the FDA granted approval to BOTOX Cosmetic for use in the treatment of lines and wrinkles, more than 1,000,000 people receive the procedure, each year. And its popularity is only growing with time.

How does BOTOX work and what should you expect during and after treatment? Simply stated, BOTOX Cosmetic interrupts the nerve impulse that signals a muscle to contract and create frown lines. By injecting a tiny needle into the muscle, the contraction cannot take place and the frown line is released, smoothed and becomes nearly invisible.

While every injection causes a sting, the BOTOX needle is very small and thin and the discomfort is minimal, and brief. The practitioner may apply a numbing agent, if you prefer, but it’s rarely required. The process is usually completed within minutes and you are on your way to continue your normal activities. There’s no recovery or down time.

After your procedure, there might be some redness, swelling, tenderness or slight bleeding, at the injection site, but these side effects should disappear quickly.

The effects of BOTOX are visible two to seven days after treatment. While the long-lasting effects of BOTOX vary for each individual, you could expect to maintain your results for up to four months, or longer. Additionally, you may repeat the BOTOX procedure every three to four months and never lose your more youthful appearance.

So if you are considering “doing a little something” to refresh your look, smooth your brow, reduce or even eliminate premature signs of aging – and want to start slowly and easily – BOTOX Cosmetic might be the very best choice for you.

Tips for Choosing a Skin Care Center

Posted on October 1, 2012 by Ella Fedonenko

There are many locations in Southern California that offer skin tightening, fillers or Botox, so it’s important to know what to look for when choosing a skin care center. In Los Angeles and Beverly Hills, laser hair removal and other treatments help you look and feel your best – that’s why you need to select the center that offers you the best care and highly qualified doctors to perform your desired treatment. Here are a few tips in choosing a doctor for any skin care procedure:

• Ask friends or family. Seeing the results firsthand and hearing feedback will help narrow down the options when looking for an office or doctor in the area. Alternatively, ask to see ‘before’ and ‘after’ photos during a consultation to get an idea of the doctor’s work.
• Choose a doctor based on experience, certification, education or training. While it’s tempting to save money on Botox or laser hair removal, it’s not worth the risk if the doctor doesn’t seem as qualified as other options.
• Check the doctor’s reviews on Yelp to see how other people’s experiences have been at their facility.

Using fillers or skin tightening procedures has the potential to take years off your appearance if they are administered correctly – and whether they are invasive or not, you should be aware of the condition of the facilities. Depending on the type of treatment you would like done, procedures may take place in a doctor’s office or surgical center. Make sure any surgical facilities are accredited to ensure they meet all safety standards set out by the state or medical organization.

Always be ready to ask the doctor any questions so you are fully prepared before the procedure takes place. Topics to discuss include treatment options – there are varieties of solutions for aging skin, so your doctor will be able to provide you with the best procedure to meet your needs. You also need to make sure your expectations are realistic – go over exactly what you expect and the doctor will let you know if it’s possible or not. Finally, be aware of those trying to “sell” you on inexpensive fillers or receiving treatment from individuals not qualified to administer such products – the risk is too great to be worth the savings.

These skin care options transform your looks in a short amount of time, and millions of procedures take place each year – especially in major cities such as Los Angeles and Beverly Hills. Incorporate these tips into your search to ensure you get the safest, highest quality treatment.

Three questions to ask before getting Botox

Posted on May 18, 2012 by olga

The decision to get Botox is an important one. Because Botox it is a medical procedure, it is important for you to be well-informed before you make that decision. Additionally, you want to be confident in your choice of provider. This is a delicate procedure and should only be performed by someone you trust. The following three questions will help you decide if Botox is right for you:

1. Who will be performing the injection?

It is absolutely crucial that the person who is actually performing the injection is well-trained and experienced in the procedure. When unqualified people inject Botox, the results can be unpleasant and potentially dangerous. The procedure should be performed by a doctor or a registered nurse who has been trained in the procedure. Be especially careful of people who market themselves as “injection specialists,” as this is not a title that requires any sort of certification or training.

2. Is Botox a good choice for me?

Botox is, first and foremost, a medical procedure. This means that while it may be a good choice for many people, it may not be a good choice for everyone. Some health conditions and medications may interact with Botox. You should discuss your health conditions with your doctor and let your Botox provider know which medications you take so that your doctor can inform you of any potential risks or safety issues.

3. How is your Botox stored and when is it reconstituted?

Botox should be carefully stored to meet the conditions on the package. Once Botox has been reconstituted, it begins to lose potency. Reconstituted Botox must be used within six hours. Ideally, your Botox dose will be prepared shortly before your appointment.

Once these questions have been answered satisfactorily, the decision to get Botox should be much easier.
