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.
"I have had botox two times prior to seeing Dr. Trott. I am young but I do not like the 11 that shows up between my brows. The last few times I had it done it didn't look natural and it felt frozen. However Trott was a completely different experience, I loved the way my forehead looked and it was still natural. HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend her!!!"- S.A. / Yelp / Aug 08, 2013

"botox without the plastic look! - Beverly Hills, CA - I'm a 38 year old woman and I started to notice the small beginning stages of crows feet around my eyes and the lines on my forehead. I started to feel down about myself because just like every other woman out there, I don't want to look old. I started to think about botox and fillers but was extremely scared because I didn't want to look fake and plastic. I started to research different doctors and was came across Dr. Trott. I decided to set up an appointment for a consultation. Walking into Dr. Trott's office I was promptly greeted by her receptionist who was courteous. I was called back to meet with Dr. Trott by her office manager/assistant Ady. She was very nice and reassured me that there was nothing to be nervous about as I am terrified of needles. I met with Dr. Trott and discussed my concerns. She gave me my options and discussed how the procedure would go if I chose to go through with it. I was impressed and scheduled an appointment. On the day of my procedure, I was once again courteously greeted and made to feel like I was at home as I waited to be called. The procedure of botox and fillers were absolutely painless. Dr. Trott was extremely gentle and applied a lotion to numb the parts where the needle was to be injected. Her assistant Ady was by her side the entire time. I was advised that I would have some swelling the next day and to apply ice to the injected areas. Dr. Trott's assistant Ady was kind enough to call the next day to see how I was feeling. Once the swelling went down I started to noticed the difference. The lines around my eyes were no longer visible and the lines on my forehead were also gone but I was still left with the movement in my forehead. I've seen some people that are over injected and have no emotion or movement on their face. I am one happy patient have recommended Dr. Trott to my friends and family. I do plan to return when touch ups are needed. "- R. / RealSelf / Oct 14, 2015

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.
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.
