What is Botox?
Botox is a safe, effective treatment which is administered by a licensed medical professional. The procedure involves a series of injections in and around the targeted treatment area. Botox helps relax the muscles which softens up the lines and wrinkles on the surface of the skin. Because it is a targeted treatment, it is more effective than needing to treat the entire body. To receive the maximum benefits of Botox, it is necessary to continue treatments every three to four months.

Botox is able to target specific areas of need, offering patients the results they are seeking. In addition to being cosmetically beneficial, Botox also offers different medical benefits for patients suffering from certain ailments. Here are the many benefits patients experience when having Botox treatments in Los Angeles:
