As one of the most requested dermal fillers, Botox® has been used to diminish lines and creases because of its effectiveness in as little as one treatment. Skin Deep Laser Med Spa treats people living Los Angeles and Pasadena and the surrounding areas with Botox® and who want to look rested and rejuvenated.
What is Botox®?
Botox® is a dermal filler made from a refined bacterium, botulinum toxin A that is injected into a targeted area to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Once injected, the facial muscles are temporarily relaxed so that the skin is smoother, firmer and more youthful.
Benefits of Botox®
Botox® is chosen over and over again by people wanting to look younger because it offers the following benefits:
- Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles especially around the eyes, on the forehead and between the eyebrows
- Quick and painless procedure
- No recovery
- Decreases excess sweating
- Reduces the intensity of migraine headaches
- Controls overactive bladders
Is Botox® Right for Me?
Botox® is a preferred treatment for people who look tired or angry because of the lines and creases around the eyes and on the forehead. Additionally, it has been proven to help decrease migraines, as well as to treat overactive bladder and excessive sweating.
How is Botox® Administered?
Botox® is injected into the targeted area via a very fine-gauged needle. The number of injections depends on the extent of the area to be treated and the severity of the wrinkles, lines or creases. The muscles around the injection are temporarily paralyzed causing the skin to relax and look smoother. For most patients, only one treatment is needed which lasts for four to six months. Physicians have also begun to use Botox® to treat patients with severe migraine headaches, overactive bladders and excessive armpit sweating.
Recovery from Botox®
There is no recovery from getting Botox® treatments; the process is very easy, fast and painless. Many people return to their normal activities immediately following their treatments.
How Much Does Botox® Cost in Pasadena, CA?
The cost of Botox® injections varies with each patient as it depends on whether this treatment is performed in conjunction with others and the extent of the area to be treated. If Botox® is being used to reduce the signs of aging, it is considered cosmetic and not covered by insurance plans; however, if its purpose is medically necessary, insurance plans may offer coverage for the injections. We can help you determine if your insurance plan provides coverage for Botox®.
