Bringing Reliable and Novel Botox Procedures to Los Angeles
Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures of all time. What’s more impressive is that it simply continues to grow in popularity year after year in spite of ever growing competition from a wide range of other products. It’s true that these other products usually work in a different way from Botox, but the desired results are often similar: a smoother, more youthful looking face—and far fewer wrinkles. Botox is particularly good at targeting deep wrinkles that are caused by muscle contractions.
These wrinkles are, basically, created when you tense your face too often. At Westside Aesthetics, we generally see patients who have deep smile or frown lines, crow’s feet, and stress lines in the forehead. These wrinkles, especially when they’re deep, are often created by muscle tension. The Botox injection actually interferes with the neurotransmitters that create this muscle tension, effectively paralyzing that muscle—but in a very controlled and deliberate way, so as to eliminate the wrinkle.
Professional and Friendly Botox Treatments
Indeed, the “Botox face”—in which the features become numb—usually happens because of over-injections of Botox. That won’t happen at Westside Aesthetics. Our staff is highly trained, and Dr. Rivkin or Dr. Cohen is personally involved in every patient’s care.
It’s worth noting that while Botox is renowned—rightfully—for its rejuvenation prowess, it’s also come to be used for some other novel reasons. For example, Botox is great at relieving muscle tension due to TMJ and TMD (creating a much more feminine jawline while it’s at it) and can be used to mitigate pain created by Migraine headaches. This makes Botox an incredibly versatile—and incredibly useful—tool in the Westside Aesthetics toolbox.
Botox Procedures at Westside Aesthetics
Here are some of the Botox procedures we perform regularly at Westside Aesthetics:
Botox Injections: Traditional Botox injections target deep wrinkles in the face caused by flexed muscles and works to mitigate those wrinkles. Botox Injections leave you with a smoother, younger-looking face.
Microbotox: Sometimes, treating deep wrinkles isn’t your aim. For a more subtle approach, try a Microbotox treatment. These are designed to make you look more vibrant, but no one will know you’ve had any work done.
Botox Brow Lift: Specially formulated to make your brows look more youthful, this procedure offers you great results with out the painful recovery of a traditional, surgical brow lift procedure.
Botox for TMJ, TMD, and Bruxism: As we mentioned above, Botox basically works by paralyzing certain targeted muscles. This makes it a wonderful treatment for conditions where the muscles are constantly flexed, such as TMD, TMJ, and Bruxism.
Botox for Migraines: Surprisingly, Botox injections can help some patients cope with migraine pain—sometimes reducing even the frequency of migraines. This is great, especially because there aren’t many alternative treatments for migraines out there.
