Wave Plastic Surgery: a Leading Botox Provider in the U.S.

When you smile, frown, or anything in between, your facial muscles are pulling and folding your skin in order to show your expressions. As these facial contractions occur more and more as you age, lines and wrinkles begin developing on the surface of your skin where it has been constantly folded and pushed. The way Botox works is by relaxing these underlying muscles to soften your expressions and improve the appearance of the signs of aging.

Botox can be used to treat common problems such as:

  • Crow's Feet
  • Frown Lines
  • Nasolabial Folds

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.

How Long Will it Take to Recover from Botox?

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.
