Botox Injections

Want Younger and Fresher Skin?

Botox is a common treatment choice at Lisa Benest, MD, Medical and Cosmetic Dermatology and for good reason - it helps patients’ smooth unnecessary and stubborn lines or wrinkles while giving them a fresher, younger appearance. Using a very small needle, several injections are placed in the area of the dynamic wrinkles. Botox works by relaxing facial muscles and holding them in this relaxed state for several months to achieve wrinkle reduction. Throughout the years, it has become one of the most popular cosmetic injections that effectively reverse visible signs of aging.

Fast & Easy Treatment with Minimal Discomfort

Treatments using Botox can be performed right here in our Burbank office, and typically take only about 10-15 minutes. With no recovery time following the procedure, you can be in and out quicker than you ever thought possible. While there may be a slight pinch felt while the injections are being administered, most patients find that the process is actually quite comfortable and pain-free. Your skin will stay smooth and youthful for a period of about four months.

The amount of Botox that you require will depend on several factors, including the level of wrinkling and the characteristics of the muscles in the targeted area. If Botox does not appear to be the correct treatment option for your unique situation, we usually recommend that our patients look at other injectable fillers, such as Restylane and Juvederm. Find out your options when you stop by our Burbank Cosmetic Dermatology Office.

Fast Facts on Botox Cosmetic

Here are some of the most important things you need to know if you are considering Botox at our Burbank, Los Angeles area treatment center.

Areas Treated:

BOTOX relaxes the muscles on the face and neck, thereby reducing and smoothing away lines and wrinkles.

Number of Treatments Required:
A single treatment can keep your skin looking smooth and youthful for about 4 months. After this time, the facial muscles which originally caused the wrinkles will begin to contract once again, unless a follow-up treatment is administered.

Treatment Time:
BOTOX takes just 10-15 minutes to perform, making it ideal for "lunchtime" procedures. You will be in and out of our office quickly.

Recovery Time:

Another advantage of BOTOX is that there's no recovery time. Makeup may be applied immediately.

Results:
Smoother skin with softened wrinkles and a more rested appearance. You will still retain the ability to make a full range of facial expressions.

Real Patient Story
Two weeks ago I went in for my first BOTOX injections and I am thrilled with the results. I told the nurse that I wanted a natural look and what she did was just perfect. My deep lines and creases are fading day by day. Meanwhile, my friends have been commenting that I look calmer, happier, and well-rested. And I haven't had a headache since I got the injections. Wow! I was so nervous beforehand, and now I wouldn't hesitate to recommend BOTOX (and Dr. Benest's office) to any of my friends. Thanks!" - K.R.
