About BOTOX

BOTOX Cosmetic is an injectable wrinkle relaxer that is commonly used to reduce or eliminate the appearance of dynamic facial wrinkles. It is injected under the skin into areas surrounding the eyes, forehead, and mouth to smooth crow’s feet, frown and worry lines, and lines on the neck. These lines are called dynamic wrinkles because they are caused when the facial muscle does not relax after a facial expression, causing the line in the skin to remain even when the face is at rest. Made from a purified protein, BOTOX relaxes the muscles in the face so the overlying wrinkles can be smoother. Double board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Suzanne Trott can also use BOTOX for migraine headaches, excessive sweating, as well as eye and neck muscle spasms. Schedule a consultation or appointment for BOTOX Cosmetic at Suzanne A. Trott, MD, FACS plastic surgery office in Beverly Hills, CA.

Best Candidates

The best candidates for BOTOX injections are in good health who show the following signs:

  • Dynamic wrinkles
  • Smile and/or frown lines
  • Lines around the eyes ("crow’s feet")

What to Expect

The doctor will look at the quantity, depth, and location of your dynamic wrinkles to mark the areas of the muscles of the face that will be treated. With an ultra-fine syringe, BOTOX will be carefully injected into the marked areas. Most patients report mild discomfort when the needle pierces the skin, but numbing creams and cold compresses can be used to make your treatment more comfortable.

Other Considerations

Besides some swelling and redness for 3 – 4 hours, you should be able to return to your regular activities after the injection. We encourage all of our BOTOX patients to avoid exercise for 24 hours and to sleep upright the first night after the treatment. Complete results after BOTOX are visible (smoother forehead and diminished wrinkles) in about 5 – 7 days. Many patients feel that BOTOX treatments make their skin look radiant, they feel younger, and look well rested.
