Botox® has become the #1 cosmetic enhancement treatment in the US, with more than 7 million procedures performed in the last year alone. It’s a safe, effective, and fast-acting alternative to more invasive facelift procedures. Rodeo Surgical Art stands above the rest in the Beverly Hills area as one of the premier clinics in which to have Botox® treatments.
How Does Botox® Work?
Botox’s® primary function is as a neuromodulator, controlling the impulses to the nerves that control muscles responsible for repetitive facial expressions like smiles, frowns, and brow furrows. By blocking these nerves, Botox® relaxes the muscles responsible for horizontal forehead wrinkles, brow furrows, and crow’s feet, so they don’t contract and perpetuate the wrinkles, giving them time to repair themselves.
Dr. Mashhadian will provide a full exam and skin evaluation to best determine how to achieve fantastic results with Botox® for the most comprehensive treatment you can find. With Dr. Mashhadian, you can treat beyond standard horizontal and vertical frown lines, starting with:
- Lip lines (smoker’s lines)
- Wrinkles across the nose bridge (bunny lines)
- Crease under the nose for a slight nose tip lift
- Gummy smile
- Chin wrinkles (that present like orange peel skin)
- Brow lift
- Fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet)
- Softened jawline
- Platysmal bands (neckbands)
- Axillary Hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm sweat)
- Jaw slimming
- TMJ Pain, teeth grinding (bruxing)
- Shoulder slimming, neck lengthening
Am I a Good Candidate?
Botox® is not indicated for lines and wrinkles caused by aging or sun damage, only those that are the product of facial expressions. Let Dr. Mashhadian guide you through the best treatment possible for your skin’s unique condition, starting with a consultation.
What is Treatment Like?
Your Botox® procedure is only as painful as a typical injection, and with the use of a tiny micro-needle and Dr. Mashhadian’s perfected technique, your treatment is performed as painlessly as possible. You may immediately resume your normal schedule, and any mild tenderness at the injection site will resolve within hours. Dr. Mashhadian’s expertise with Botox® will have you loving your new look while the expressions and emotions that display the real you remain intact.
How Long Does Botox® Last?
Botox® takes anywhere from 7-10 days to fully take effect, after which your skin will smooth out and any dynamic wrinkles will diminish and disappear. For most new Botox® patients, the effects of the medication last between 3-5 months. It has a cumulative effect as time goes on, however, so patients who become Botox® veterans enjoy the effects for longer. Your muscles become accustomed to the medication relaxing them, giving you longer between appointments because your muscles take longer to resume normal levels of motion and expression.
Dr. David Mashhadian sees and treats each and every patient at Rodeo Surgical Art, so from your first consultation to your rejuvenation appointment, you can discuss your concerns, aesthetic goals, and potential uses for Botox® with a fellowship-trained cosmetic surgeon, not a nurse or physician’s assistant. You can also trust that any treatment you receive, from Botox® to more extensive procedures, will be overseen from start to finish by Dr. Mashhadian, so if your treatment needs to adapt, it will be done smoothly and with as little disruption to your treatment plan as possible. While you may have earned every one of your worry lines, you don’t have to show them anymore. Smile with no concern about forming new wrinkles thanks to Rodeo Surgical Art.
