The world’s attention seems to be on Botox in Beverly Hills recently. You see celebrities from all over the globe having their picture done with a “Botox” laser treatment. And, now you hear that some cosmetic plastic surgeons are now offering “Botox Brentwood” and “Botox Hollywood.” How can this be?
First, let me explain what Botox is. Basically, it’s an injectable solution that contains botulinum toxin. In the medical world this toxin causes your body to produce the collagen that lines your muscles so that they will be less rigid. This reduces wrinkles, improves your skin’s elasticity, and plumps up your facial muscles. Botox is generally used to treat muscle spasms, such as those that occur when you get a whiplash injury.
It may surprise you to know that not everyone can have botox Los Angeles or Botox San Francisco treatments. First of all, you need to be very healthy to even consider getting this treatment. Also, you need to find a qualified cosmetic surgeon in the Beverly Hills area or the surrounding areas to perform the injections for you. The California Supreme Court has ordered the Botox companies to make their practice law less restrictive. However, if your doctor wants to go against this order and performs the injections anyway, the results are not legally considered to be legitimate. If your doctor does not follow these strict rules, he can be held legally liable.
So, how can you get botox Los Angeles or Botox San Francisco treatments? There are two primary ways to do this, and they are both outpatient procedures: In Los Angeles, you can go to a qualified plastic surgeon’s office and have your jaw, forehead, or other areas injected with botulinum toxin. Alternatively, you can elect to have your forehead, cheeks, or any other area injected with either the botulinum toxin itself, or with a combination of it and a weak solution, which reduces the swelling. You can also have laser hair removal performed at the same time or let your surgeon recommends an alternative such as a punch excision.
There are now also “mini-laser” procedures available. Because the injection of botulinum toxin has a much longer lasting effect, it was first intended to be used on people with recurring migraines. Nowadays, however, the mini-laser technique is being used more frequently for both cosmetic and medical reasons. It works by creating a shadow in the skin where the treated area is located. This technique can be used to eliminate folds, creases, wrinkles, frown lines, crow’s feet around the eyes, nasolabial folds, and other unsightly skin conditions.
Another popular type of cosmetic procedure in the Los Angeles area is called lip filling. A small laser, attached to a hand piece, shoots a burst of light down into the fat below the skin. When this light enters the fat cells below the skin, it vaporizes them, causing them to quickly contract, which fills in the area between your eyebrows and your lip line. In Los Angeles, doctors have been using this technique, sometimes called “lipo liposuction”, on patients with excessive facial or lip fat. This method does not damage the subcutaneous fat, but rather, helps tighten the skin.
You can also get a facelift at your plastic surgeon’s office in Brentwood. Unlike other facelifts, this procedure is not done with the use of lasers but uses lasers that stimulate the fibers of the collagen in your face. After the laser pulses through the epidermis, the collagen fibers break down, and new skin grows in its place.
Botox is still undergoing clinical trials and is not approved for use by all doctors. You should discuss the benefits and risks with your plastic surgeon before you schedule a face lift at your plastic surgeon’s office in Brentwood. In the interim, you can try out a number of safe, non-invasive treatments to improve your appearance without having to see a doctor. The safest way to improve your appearance is to exercise regularly, maintain a healthy diet, avoid potentially harmful toxins, and make sure you get enough rest. With these steps, you can improve your appearance at any time.
