Botox Injections: Purpose, Side Effects & Warnings

Along with the advent of normally aging skin, many of us begin to notice small wrinkles, laugh lines, crow’s feet, and perhaps a general fatigue in our facial expressions.  Botox (Botulinum Toxin) is the remedy that can help control and even reverse all the above conditions and return to each of us a more youthful and less stressed appearance.  Botox is safe and you can expect to see results in as little as 2-3 days (that can last up to 4 months).  Botox Santa Monica

Botox injections can be easily applied to treat the following:

1) forehead lines
2) facial wrinkles
3) crow’s feet
4) under eye sagging

1) minor swelling
