Wrinkles – it’s the one thing every person will experience as he/she ages, and it’s typically not something we want to celebrate. Well, one of the joys of youth is having bright, smooth skin, especially on the face. Some people accept and embrace the signs of aging such as wrinkles, but most others want to turn back the clock to a time when they thought they looked their best, without the wrinkles. With Botox treatment in Los Angeles with Dr. Robert Abergel, this is possible!
It can be difficult to accept the fact that as you get older, things change, especially with your body and skin. And time seems to fly by so quickly as we get older, and wrinkles appear before you know it or are ready for them. For that reason, research and technology has helped your Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon offer treatments to rejuvenate the skin.
With Botox treatment, patients’ wrinkles can be visibly reduced, making the skin appear fuller and younger. Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon Dr. Robert Abergel offers Botox treatments to give his patients younger, fuller looking skin.
So, what is Botox?
Botox is a prescription medicine that only a cosmetic surgeon or health professional can administer. With an injection of Botox, the facial muscles that are creating the wrinkles relax because the nerve impulses are blocked and without the muscles contracting, the wrinkles are much less noticeable.
Patients don’t need to visit their Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon’s office a number of times because a Botox injection takes less than 20 minutes, and there is minimal – to no – discomfort. Some patients may experience side effects such as swelling and bruising, but they typically disappear pretty quickly.
Contrary to popular belief, an injection of Botox doesn’t freeze the face. The point of Botox is to diminish muscle contractions, not freeze the face. Some patients of Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon Dr. Robert Abergel request multiple injections and end up with stiff facial expressions. The “less is more” Botox approach typically garners better results. A trained cosmetic surgeon has the ability to produce natural looking results, so patients can still make facial expressions and flaunt their younger looking skin.
If you are considering Botox for younger looking skin – or have any questions about the procedure – contact Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon Dr. Robert Abergel to schedule a consultation.
