Botox Injections Near Me

botox injections, dermal filler injections

BOTOX® Injections are unique among anti-aging treatments. While lotions and potions, creams and concoctions make all kinds of unsubstantiated claims to arrest or reverse the aging process, BOTOX is the first and only FDA-approved treatment to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines look better in adults. Injections have another advantage over other anti-aging methods: they don’t require time-consuming daily or weekly re-applications, or any of the expense and complications associated with cosmetic surgery. The process is simply a ten minute cosmetic procedure with minimal downtime, and you can begin to notice results within two days. For signs of aging such as moderate to heavy frown lines, results can last as long as 4 months.

What is Botox?

BOTOX® is the brand name of a protein which is synthesized from a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum in laboratory environments. BOTOX® is derived from a poisonous source, but is not itself poisonous, much like the poisonous yew tree is the source of the anti-cancer drug Taxol. Botox is heavily modified and diluted, making it extremely safe. In the hands of a trained expert like Dr. Cynthia, the chances of side effects are essentially zero. Dr. Cynthia is proud to deliver some of the finest BOTOX® injections in Los Angeles or the San Fernando Valley.

What Can I Expect from Botox Injections?

BOTOX® comes as a powder, which then has saline added by the physician or nurse injector to make it suitable for injection. It is injected precisely into specific facial muscles to achieve the desired weakening effects. The protein remains in the muscle for between three and four months, before it is broken down by the body and excreted. It is never absorbed by the body and, if correctly injected, only affects the local muscle, with no effects on the rest of the body.

Other Aesthetic Services

We don’t just have Botox. Dr. Cynthia offers a wide variety of services for empowering people to embody the aesthetic they strive for. Adults seeking a natural, expressive look love the alternative to botox treatments known as DYSPORT, a prescription injection which smooths the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. DYSPORT’s unique property is that it doesn’t alter the movement or look of the rest of your face. Laugh, smile, and cry with all the freedom you currently enjoy as your untreated muscles operate with 100% efficiency. DYSPORT is about minimizing fine lines, not your range of expression. It’s the best of both worlds!

Dermal Filler Injections – A Liquid Facelift

Do you want the benefits of a facelift without the dangers of invasive treatments such as plastic surgery? Thanks to advances in the application of dermal filler injections such as JUVEDERM®, Radiesse® and Restylane®, Dr. Cynthia can lift and contour facial features in ways that would have required substantial surgical bills and lengthy hospital stays a decade ago. These non-invasive methods have multiple other advantages over traditional facelifts besides the cost and inconvenience: as well as being far less prone to medical complications and hazards, they offer a more subtle, natural result. There’s no expensive recovery period after surgery, no pain as your skin adjusts to being stretched into positions that it has lost the ability to maintain by itself. Only a subtle and precise resculpting of your face by a functional medicine doctor will work to help you achieve your aesthetic goals with far more fine control than surgery.

Dermal filler injections are prized for their ability to restore facial volume, reduce fine lines, and provide a degree of facial rejuvenation. Typically, the procedure involves injection of a liquid dermal filler such as Restylane or Juvederm (although alternatives are available). This treatment is used in concert with botulinum toxin (Botox), which has the combined effect of relaxing facial lines. Enjoy all the benefits of a youthful appearance without the artificial look surgical solutions can result in.

How to Enhance and Contour Cheeks and Lips

Dermal filler injections are highly versatile. Juvederm, Radiesse, or Restylane can all be used to soften deep facial creases and wrinkles, augment contours you would like to fill out, and give shallow cheeks, thin lips, and sunken under-eyes a more exuberant, youthful appearance. What is not commonly understood about the aging process is that full lips and a beautiful mouth are both reliant on moisture and nutrient levels in our skin cells. As time goes on, those levels can diminish. Dermal lip filler injections arrest that trend in order to give your lips the fullness and definition you seek to hold onto. Turn the clock back on those features and recapture all the charm of your youth!

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling also goes by the name of collagen induction therapy. Collagen is a highly effective source of laxity and firmness in youthful skin. As we age, collagen production tapers off, leaving skin sagging and less supple, allowing wrinkles, crow’s feet, and other creases to form and set in. Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation procedure that stimulates collagen production. It is minimally invasive, using a device that creates minute and precise punctures at various depths, creating a tightly controlled and very minor skin injury. The initial process alone adds color and volume to the face, giving the skin a radiant and full appearance. However, over a short series of treatments, microneedling can massively increase the amount of collagen and elastin that your skin produces, making it more youthful and whole in appearance and restoring vital elasticity. Even better, microneedling can reverse the damage of acne scarring and hyperpigmentation. With all of those benefits, why would you not want to try out microneedling and see what it can do for your appearance?

We also provide a procedure called a Vampire Facial®. This peculiar name comes from how your own blood platelets are used to encourage new collagen growth, promoting the rejuvenation and strengthening of your skin. And really, who wouldn’t love to have healthier skin? Dr. Cynthia can’t offer eternal life, but if you want to sample the youthful appearance vampires enjoy, that can certainly be arranged. Perfect complexions don’t have to only be for the vampires…

Pellevé Wrinkle Reduction

Pellevé is a high-tech solution to the problem of dwindling collagen production without invasive knifes or needles. The Pellevé system targets areas of the body with a specific radio frequency. These radio waves gently warm the lowest layers of skin, stimulating greater collagen production. Dr. Cynthia recommends a series of treatments to produce the best possible effects. Depending on the area which needs to be treated, treatments can be done in as little as 30 minutes. There is no pain and no lasting side-effects, and you can go right back to your everyday activities once your treatment is completed. The treatment feels similar to a hot stone massage, and any redness caused by the elevated temperature of your skin will subside shortly after the procedure is completed. Imagine what it would feel like to have that youthful spring to your skin restored, to feel the wrinkles and creases on your face fade away as your skin fills out once more and the decades fall away.
