Botox Cosmetic Beverly Hills
When we smile, frown, squint, or raise our eyebrows, we use muscles in our face to perform these expressions. Over time, the skin overlying these muscles loses its elasticity and strength so it appears creased (wrinkled) when the muscles contract. These are called dynamic wrinkles. Botulinum A, a medicine present in Botox™ can be used to weakness these muscles to a certain degree so these wrinkles do not appear when facial expressions are made. It is important to note that wrinkles or lines that are present at rest (without facial expression movement) which are called static wrinkles are not treated by Botox. There is evidence that static wrinkles tend to fade over time with Botox treatment if the patient continues to treat area.
Botox™ has been used for cosmetic reasons for years and its safety is well known. It is extremely important that patients seek a qualified practitioner for Botox treatment because like any medical procedure, complications can occur if not done correctly. Dr. Jumaily is trained in Botox administration and as a surgeon is most familiar with anatomy and muscles that Botox treats. Our results are natural, without the ‘surprised’ look or overly ‘frozen’ and obvious appearance.
