Best Botox in Los Angeles
You may already know about the outstanding results that can happen from getting Botox® injections, but, did you know Botox® is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows and crow’s feet lines in adults?
Botox® is one of the most extensively studied medical aesthetic treatments available, and it is approved for cosmetic use in nearly 80 countries. Botox® administered in a med spa setting has a record of experience that LA Beauty Skin Center aesthetic specialists know and trust.
Naturally Derived Botox® at LA Beauty Skin Center
Botox® contains minimal amounts of a highly purified botulinum toxin protein refined from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum. The formulations, potency, and approved doses are different in other botulinum toxin products so that no other product can replace Botox®. These are a few of the reasons why there is no such thing as a “generic” form of Botox® or an alternative to the best Botox® in Los Angeles. There have been no studies to support that there are other products that can produce the same results as Botox® from a med spa such as LA Beauty Skin Center.
How it Works
Botox® blocks the signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle can no longer contract, causing wrinkles to relax and soften.
Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors, such as cellular changes, the reduction of collagen, along with damage caused by free radicals in the sun and the environment that can occur over time. However, wrinkles also form over time due to common facial movements. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to crease and fold. When you squint, muscles contract and fold the skin around your eyes, causing crow’s feet.
Botox® works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet.
For the frown lines area, one of the best Botox® specialists in Los Angeles will administer five injections into muscles in your forehead – one in the procerus muscle and four in the corrugator muscles.
Injecting Botox® into the muscles that cause frown lines temporarily reduces the activity of those muscles. The result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines.
For the crow’s feet area, one of the best Botox® specialists in Los Angeles will inject three regions in the orbicularis oculi, the muscle that frames the side of the eye. This process will be repeated on the orbicularis oculi muscle on the other eye. Injecting Botox® into the muscles that cause crow’s feet lines temporarily reduces the activity of those muscles. The result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines.
Although Botox® is primarily used to reduce skin wrinkles by relaxing the underlying muscles, it can also be used to create a lifting effect. There are two groups of muscles on the face that have opposite effects – the ones that pull the skin down (depressors) and those that pull it up (levators). Our experienced Botox® specialists at LA Beauty Skin Center can create a lifting effect by preferentially blocking the depressor muscles.
Botox® is also used for the safe treatment of various medical conditions, such as hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), migraine headaches, facial acne, back pain, stroke-related muscle contractures, blepharospasms, and depression. There are, of course, some instances where the use of Botox® is contraindicated – please consult with your primary care physician before coming in.
