Your Los Angeles plastic surgeon at Wave Plastic Surgery will listen to what your goal look is in order to determine where the Botox will need to be injected. Having an older picture of yourself will help us to better preserve your own unique look for results that appear completely natural – as if you had just gone a few years back in time.
You should be able to go back to your normal routine immediately after your Botox treatment. Just make sure to protect yourself from the California sun with sunscreen to prevent any unwanted side effects. Over the course of a few days, you will begin noticing improvements in the look of your skin as any existing lines or wrinkles begin to fade away.
Most patients see continued results for up to 3-6 months, and once you feel the lines or wrinkles coming back, you can return for some touch-up treatments to maintain a long-lasting youthful look.
