Botox® is the single most popular cosmetic office procedure performed today, whether it be in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills or the rest of the world.
Why get your Botox™ treatment at Profiles Beverly Hills?
There are innumerable physicians, dentists, nurses and even spa technicians that provide Botox™ use. The entrance of so many physicians, nurses and other “allied health professionals” into this area of “cosmetic surgery” has left many people confused as to what it is, how it works, and how much treatments and injections should cost.
Drs. Litner and Solieman, after years in the field of Facial Plastic surgery have learned that patients’ expectations can be externally varied and must be addressed fully in order to properly meet each patients specific needs and wants.
While some individuals come to Profiles Beverly Hills seeking a totally frozen forehead, others simply want some softening of some active lines; still others may want a slight elevation in the brow. A little bit of BOTOX® or other facial filler can often go a long way toward achieving one’s desired goals. As a result, our patients leave us feeling satisfied with their results, while at the same time saving money.
Surprisingly, there are some individuals who believe that BOTOX® is not very user dependent, and that as long as it is injected in roughly the right spot, it works.
Drs. Litner and Solieman believe strongly that the very opposite is indeed true! Precision as well as anatomical expertise and specifically addressing a patient’s needs and desires are the essential keys to a successful BOTOX® treatment. At Profiles Beverly Hills, each of our patients is viewed individually both in terms of their concerns and their anatomy. Some patients are very adamant that they don’t want to look completely frozen and so they require less. It is only through the process of listening to their concerns and understanding their anatomy that these unique issues can be addressed properly. Just as importantly, some patients arrive at Profiles Beveryly Hills assuming that they require BOTOX® for their concerns when, in fact, really they would do much better if they had a filler, a combination of BOTOX® and a filler, or something totally different, like a peel. If those patients choose to receive treatment at the office of someone who only provides BOTOX®, then this would be the only procedure offered to them.
BOTOX® treatment is a purified protein that is injected as a clear solution into the muscles responsible for the formation of wrinkles. Once administered it relaxes these muscles in a non-permanent way to give you a healthier, more youthful and energetic appearance. At Profiles Beverly Hills the most common areas treated are the forehead, the frown lines between the eyes, and the crow’s feet around the eyes.BOTOX® can also be used to reduce “necklace” lines in the neck, decrease the appearance of a “gummy” smile, or minimize bunching of the chin muscles.
You will probably find that the treatment effect of BOTOX® lasts 3 to 4 months. However, many of our patients happily report that, by returning for repeated treatments, this time interval can be extended to 6 months or more. We have found that many of our patients include it in their beauty regimen along with makeup, regular facials, good fitness and nutrition. While it will almost definitely make you feel better about your appearance, we hear from many patients who notice that it helps them to stay competitive in the workplace.
Once in a while, patients are curious about BOTOX® but are concerned about the potential risks of the medication. As with any other procedure, the risks of BOTOX®, at the doses our doctors, are many times lower than the risks contained in a bottle of Aspirin or Tylenol.
BOTOX® can be administered safely, effectively, and with minimal investment in the comfort of our Profiles Beveryly Hills office in as little as fifteen minutes, even over your lunch hour. Every injections performed by our Facial Plastic Surgeons, so you can be assured of the absolute highest possible level of care. You can even return to work or other activities immediately after your appointment looking and feeling like a better, more refreshed you.

The Botox Injections
At your initial Botox Cosmetic™ Consultation, we will take the time you need to determine if it is right for you and to explain, in detail if you wish, what you can expect. Los Angeles and Beverly Hills Botox specialist Dr. Litner or Dr. Solieman will then examine your facial movement and areas of wrinkling in order to precisely determine the optimal locations to be treated. It is then administered directly into the muscle with several tiny injections. The process itself takes about ten minutes to complete.
There is little downtime associated with the Botox injections. While some very minor swelling or bruising may occur at the injection site, patients are able to immediately return to work and other normal activities. The injection will usually begin to take effect in about three to five days with the maximum effect occurring in about two to three weeks. It works on two levels, providing immediate improvement of wrinkles associated with expressions while also helping over time to prevent deeper wrinkles when regular appointments are kept. The results last up to four months on average. After that time, you will begin to notice a gradual return to your pre-treatment appearance. At this time, you may wish to schedule a repeat Botox treatment visit to maintain your satisfying results.
