Details for Case #12922
This 72-year-old woman was concerned about the frown lines on her forehead, especially the ones between her eyebrows. She wanted a non-surgical way to improve her wrinkles. She had heard about BOTOX® Cosmetic, but she was unsure whether it would give her the results she needed. She consulted with a board-certified Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon at Marina Plastic Surgery Associates to help her decide.
During her consultation, she learned that she was a good candidate for BOTOX in Los Angeles. Her surgeon explained that BOTOX is frequently used to treat wrinkles caused by repeated facial movements, such as smiling and squinting. She was glad to know there was a non-surgical way to rejuvenate her appearance, and she scheduled an appointment.
During her procedure, the doctor used a very fine needle to administer the BOTOX injections. No anesthesia was needed, and the patient was very comfortable during treatment. The process took about half an hour, and her recovery required no downtime. After about 7 days, the patient could see the full results. She is very happy with the smoothness of her skin and enjoys having a refreshed appearance.
