Laser & Light Treatments
Botox Cosmetic Beverly HillsBotox® is a purified biological protein that is approved by the FDA for the treatment of frown lines between the brows. Botox is administered via tiny injections directly into overactive muscles that cause lines to form. Botox works by blocking transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscles, leading to muscle relaxation. The benefit lasts an average of four months. The effects of Botox are localized to the injected area; it does not travel throughout the body. Side effects are rare and generally limited to mild bruising, transient drooping of the eyelid or brow, and transient headache or numbness.
