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
"Natural Breats Post Giving Birth - I first met Dr. Trott 4 years ago for a breast augmentation consultation. At that point, I had given birth 18 months prior. I was her last appointment of the day, and she stayed with me for an extra hour to answer all of my meticulously thought out (and written out) questions. She was thorough with every answer, often drawing on a pad to help me visualize what she was explaining. I just fell in love with her. On the day before my surgery, she met with me again to reassure that everything was going to be okay. I was torn between two implant sizes. (I wanted to look natural, between a B-C bra size) On the day of the surgery, Dr. Trott came in early to talk with me and to calm my nerves. I later found out that she is one of the most thorough surgeons in the OR from different Los Angeles OR staff and other plastic surgeons. During the operation, she tried out the different size implants (the two I was torn between), each time sitting me up on the table to see which one suited what I had desired as well as seeing which one suited my body type better. When I woke up in the recovery room I didn't even feel pain in my left beast. The right one was slightly sore, but I could hardly feel the pain. I took one of the prescription pain meds that night, but went off the prescription meds and started taking IBUPROFEN the following day. I remember walking back to my hotel (5 city blocks) after my followup appointment the next day. That's how good and strong I felt! 4 yeas later, my breasts look so natural that no one has ever noticed that I have had a breast aug surgery. ("Looking natural" was one of my strong desires) She absolutely chose the right implant size! I'm so glad I trusted her with that decision. I have had a nipple reduction and Botox with her since, and have been so happy with all of the procedures that I could not recommend this doctor enough. If you are like me, and are looking for a caring, thorough, precise and brilliant artist as your surgeon, look no further. Dr. Trott is your doctor. "- T. / RealSelf / Jan 22, 2017

"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
"My visits with Dr. Trott are great. She makes room for me in her busy schedule for Botox. She is always warm, welcoming and makes me feel very comfortable. The entire staff is friendly and extremely accommodating. I look forward to all of my visits, and would recommend Dr. Trott to anyone."- N.G. / Yelp / Apr 02, 2017
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.
