The Benefits of Botox
Most everyone has heard of Botox and countless people have actually had a Botox treatment. In fact, Botox injections are the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure in the United States. But do you know all that Botox can do? Babak Azizzadeh, MD, FACS, Director of the CENTER for Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery, specializes in Botox in Beverly Hills and uses it to treat a variety of medical and cosmetic conditions.
How Does Botox Work?
Botox is a neuromodulator that prohibits muscles from contracting. The doctor injects it into the muscle underneath the area of treatment in a short, generally painless treatment session. Results of Botox injections are temporary, usually lasting between three and four months, however, Botox can be injected again as needed. Used to treat a variety of conditions, both cosmetic and medical, Botox in Beverly Hills may be able to help you.
What is Botox Used For?
We most commonly associate Botox with wrinkle reduction and, while that is the most common indication, it is also used to treat various medical conditions as well as facial paralysis. Dr. Azizzadeh, Beverly Hills Botox expert, performs Botox injections at the CENTER for Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery regularly to treat the following:
- Dynamic Wrinkles
- Forehead Creases
- Fine Lines & Wrinkles
- Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating)
- Masseter Hypertrophy
- Scar Limitation
- Facial Paralysis
Patients with an overly strong or full jaw, known as masseter hypertrophy, can experience slimming of the jaw and improved appearance with a non-surgical Botox procedure. Also, chronic migraine sufferers often report significant improvement in quality of life after carefully placed Botox injections to reduce muscle hyperactivity and calm the muscles in the neck and head causing the migraines. Dr. Azizzadeh is also a world-renowned facial paralysis expert who frequently recommends Botox in Beverly Hills to improve facial symmetry in patients living with facial paralysis.
Botox has proven effective in treating the above conditions and Dr. Babak Azizzadeh experiences great success due to his extensive knowledge of the intricate nature of the face as a board-certified facialplastic and reconstructive surgeon.
