What is Botox?

Botox is a purified protein which is injected into the skin to temporarily relax the muscles in order to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles for a more youthful appearance. Botox is an incredibly popular treatment, and millions of people undergo the procedure each year.

What Advantages Does Botox Offer?

The biggest advantage Botox offers is a more youthful appearance, free from fine lines and wrinkles. The advantages don't stop there, however. Botox is also quick, easy and effective. It is non-invasive, affordable and nearly painless. Plus, it is reversible. If you don't love the way you look, you can go back to your previous, wrinkled appearance in just a few months if you would like.

What Conditions Can Botox Be Used to Treat?

While Botox is best known as a safe and effective treatment for fine lines and wrinkles, Botox injections from A E Skin in Encino can be used for many additional purposes as well. Botox is also used to treat eye spasms, excessive sweating, migraines and urinary incontinence.

What is the Recovery Period Like?

Botox recovery is generally quick and easy, with next to no downtime. In fact, you should be clear to resume your normal daily activities as soon as the procedure is over.

There are a few activities you will need to avoid, however. Avoid strenuous heat, alcohol consumption, and exercise for 24 hours after the treatment and do not lie down flat for four hours after the treatment, as this can cause the Botox drug to move into unintended areas. You may also want to put an ice pack on the area if you start to develop any bruising or swelling; don’t worry we will provide you one free of charge at your appointment. Otherwise, you can continue with your day as normal.

Does Botox Hurt?

No, Dr. Alex has designed the painless Botox technique that our patients love. It is a combination of things including using preserved saline, using the smallest possible needles, applying cold air to numb the area, distracting the patient by massage, and Dr. Alex’s gentle touch. Try it for yourself.

If you're tired of looking in the mirror, only to see fine lines and wrinkles, make today the day you finally do something about it. Call Dr. Alex at A E Skin in Encino at 818-835-1833 to set up your appointment for Botox injections today.
