Find out how Botox treatment could give your skin the refreshing look you’ve been wanting.
If you’ve been wondering about the many ways in which you can get younger-looking skin in Encino, CA, our med spa doctor Dr. Alex offers simple non-surgical options like Botox to give you the cosmetic spruce you are looking to start the New Year.
Treat Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Botox is designed to treat dynamic wrinkles, or wrinkles that appear when moving your face. Take a look in the mirror and smile for a moment. What do you see? If you find that wrinkles and lines develop on your forehead, around your mouth or your eyes, these are wrinkles that Botox treatment will be able to smooth away. How? Botox relaxes the muscles of the face, reducing contractions to smooth away these lines and wrinkles that form when you make certain facial expressions.
A Fast, Minimally Invasive Treatment
Botox is one of the fastest cosmetic treatments we offer. In fact, in just a few minutes we can administer the Botox treatment through the use of very thin needles. Some patients choose to get this done during their lunch break because it’s that quick. Plus, pain is very minimal. Even without applying a numbing gel to the treatment area, most people don’t feel anything more than a slight pinch or burning sensation. Botox can target lines and wrinkles without surgery.
You can also go right back to your normal routine right after Botox treatment. While there may be some slight redness or swelling at the injection sites, it’s very minimal and will go away within a couple of days. Not having to take time off work is a big deal for many people, and Botox makes it easy to get the cosmetic treatment you want without having to take days off from your normal routine. Botox fits into your busy life!
Results are Temporary
In many cases, people wouldn’t normally see this as a benefit; however, if this is your first time turning to cosmetic dermatology in Encino, CA, you may want to take it a bit slower and ease into these types of treatments. Many of our patients want to improve their appearance but worry about treatment options that offer long-term results. After all, what if you aren’t happy with the results that a treatment gives you? Botox allows you to treat those early signs of aging without the long-term commitment.
Maintain Your Results
Just because results are temporary doesn’t mean that you can’t keep your appearance looking young and fresh for longer than 3-4 months. If you love the way you look with Botox talk to our Encino, CA, medical spa physician to find out how often you should come in for maintenance treatments to keep your results looking their best.
If you are looking for a quick, easy and non-invasive way to cosmetically enhance your appearance while boosting your self-confidence, then Botox may be the right treatment option for you. If you are interested in Botox call A E Skin in Encino, CA, to schedule your consultation.

What Is Juvederm?
As time goes by, the skin changes in appearance and fullness. The facial muscles move as you make certain expressions, like smiling, laughing, or frowning, causing deep lines to form. You lose volume and the skin begins to sag. Injecting the skin with the Juvederm family of products (Voluma, Vollure, and Volbella), which is composed of hyaluronic acid, will rejuvenate its appearance by giving it a plumper look and filling in some unwanted lines. This proprietary dermal filler is also used to add volume to aging hands and lips.

- The appointment is quick and easy (about 15 minutes for the treatment).
- The formula includes a numbing agent to decrease the chance of discomfort during the procedure.
