Many people want to avoid the look of fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet and forehead furrows as they age, but they do not want to go through a full surgical procedure. Los Angeles Botox and Fillers may be just the answer that these people need. These facial contouring solutions provide instantaneous relief from the previously mentioned problems without requiring downtime from work and other activities. Although they need to be repeated every few months, most people who have tried Botox or fillers are quite satisfied with their results.
Los Angeles Botox and Filler Procedure
Botox must be performed by a fully trained doctor because it can be dangerous if performed incorrectly. Dr. Tavoussi at the OC Cosmetic Surgery Clinique in Orange County has years of experience performing this technique and can discuss it with interested patients to determine if it is the best solution for them. Los Angeles Botox uses the Botulinum toxin to paralyze the small muscles within the face, particularly those around the eyes and in the forehead. Once these muscles are paralyzed, they will no longer contract noticeably.
Botox comes with few risks, but it may cause drooping eyelids or dry eye when used around the eyes. It lasts for at least three to four months and may last even longer in patients who have repeatedly had this treatment. Getting Los Angeles Botox injections takes only 10 minutes or less and can be done in the privacy of our Newport Beach office.
Types of Botox and Fillers
The fillers that we use are Juvaderm and Restylane. These fillers are also injected into a variety of areas around the face to fill in fine lines and wrinkles, restoring a youthful appearance. Los Angeles residents love this treatment because it is simple and does not require any prior testing before it can be performed. Fillers typically last at least six months although some patients do not need a repeat treatment for up to a year or more. Patients may want to use some type of local anesthetic for these injections as they can be a bit more painful than Botox injections are.
Dr. Tavoussi performs all of our Los Angeles Botox and Fillers and is well-loved for his attention to his patients’ concerns. During a patient’s initial evaluation, he will thoroughly go over the procedure as well as any possible risks. Complete patient satisfaction is our goal, and we achieve this through our attention to safety and details.
