How does Botox work?
A special injectable medicine, Botox works by temporarily weakening the underlying facial muscles that
contribute to deep wrinkles and fine lines. It offers a quick and comfortable way to improve telltale
signs of aging, ultimately achieving a more youthful, relaxed and wrinkle-free complexion.
Benefits of Botox
There’s a reason why Botox is one of the most popular non-surgical treatment options Dr. Schwartz offers.
The procedure comes with a number of appealing benefits, including:
Quick treatment and results
Most Botox injections last ten minutes, and the full results emerge quickly – within just seven
Thanks to the careful application of ice and numbing cream, as well as our gentle approach, most of our
patients find Botox injections to be quite comfortable.
Dramatic and natural results
Not only can Botox be used to smooth lines and restore a more youthful appearance, but we are known for
ensuring that each and every one of our patients looks extremely natural – never frozen.
An overview of Botox injections
Your appointment for among the best Botox Calabasas has to offer will begin during your initial consultation with Dr. Schwartz and/or Cheryl, his nurse injector. Cheryl is a registered nurse with many years of cosmetic injecting experience, and is an Allergan injectable trainer. She teaches advanced injection techniques to physicians around the country. At your initial consultation, you will be carefully evaluated for the signs of aging that concern you most, as well as your facial anatomy. Using this information, a customized treatment plan will be designed to smooth your wrinkles in the most natural and effective way possible.
To begin your actual injections, Dr. Schwartz or Cheryl will apply ice or a numbing cream to the treatment area to ensure your comfort. You will then be asked to contract your facial muscles so the exact location for the medication can be determined to effectively treat your wrinkles and ensure you’re still able to move your face with ease. The Botox will then be administered directly into the underlying muscles, with the almost painless treatment lasting approximately ten minutes.
Immediately after your injections, you will be given special instructions to ensure an optimal result. You will be advised to avoid rubbing your face, exercising and laying flat for 4 hours after the procedure. This is to avoid the rare chance of the Botox injection shifting to an unwanted location. Other than that, because Botox is a non-invasive treatment with virtually no side effects, you will be encouraged to resume your normal daily routine immediately.
Is Botox right for you?
As Dr. Schwartz believes in truly personalized care, candidacy for all treatments are done on an individual basis, following a thorough evaluation of the imperfections you’d like to address, as well as your medical history and cosmetic objectives.
With that said, as long as you are between 18 and 65 years of age and would like a non-surgical and extremely effective way to treat crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead wrinkles, neck bands and laugh lines, you may be considered a candidate. During your initial consultation with Dr. Schwartz or Cheryl, they will work closely with you to determine whether or not this treatment is in your best interest and can accomplish your precise cosmetic goals.
