When injected with precision in small quantities, BOTOX® works to inhibit the contractions of overactive facial muscles. At Moradi MD, we are trusted to inject BOTOX® with precision and skill, creating natural-looking outcomes. With BOTOX®, we take a conservative approach, as in many cases, “less is more.” The ideal result of BOTOX® injections is that the face will appear refreshed, healthy, and smooth, but in the most natural way – which takes skill.

How does BOTOX® work?

BOTOX® treatments take only minutes to complete and provide a rejuvenating effect that lasts for months. Tiny doses of BOTOX® are injected into the forehead, between the brows, or around the eyes. After entering the targeted muscle strands, BOTOX® blocks chemical signals from the nerves to the muscles that trigger contractions, such as squinting, smiling, frowning, or laughing. These facial motions, over time, will etch in lines and creases on the overlying skin. Within a few days after the injections, typically three to seven, the smoothing, age-defying look of the injections becomes visible, leaving behind a more radiant, refreshed appearance.

What is the BOTOX® treatment experience?

BOTOX® injections take only about 15 to 30 minutes to complete and are performed at our private, state-of-the-art clinic. During your sessions, you will rest comfortably under the care of a trained, certified professional focused on ensuring beautiful, natural-looking results. The number of injections needed will reflect the location and extent of your facial wrinkles, lines, and creases. BOTOX® injections are reasonably comfortable to experience, with the only sensation being the needle’s prick. If you are sensitive to pain, a numbing cream can be applied before your injections. You are free to return to your regular schedule immediately following your appointment.

Does BOTOX® have any downtime?

BOTOX® injections do not involve any downtime. You will need to follow specific instructions, which include avoiding rubbing or massaging your face, avoiding exercise for 24 hours, and not lying down for at least four hours. To help prevent any bruising, avoid alcohol for 24 hours and take blood-thinning supplements or medications the day before your treatment. Should any bruising appear, it generally fades within a day or two and can be camouflaged with makeup. 

Is BOTOX® the best choice for me?

In recent years, BOTOX® has seen some competition as other drugs have been approved by the FDA and introduced to the aesthetic market. Dysport and Xeomin are muscle relaxers similar to BOTOX®. These products have the same active ingredient as BOTOX® but work slightly differently. At Moradi MD, every treatment we perform is customized specifically for the individual, and we may use one or more neuromodulators to achieve a very natural, rejuvenated look.

Are you a candidate for BOTOX®?

BOTOX® injections are frequently performed on people in their 40s and 50s. Many younger people are now choosing BOTOX® injections to keep their facial skin smooth and clear, preventing the development of lines and wrinkles in their late 20s or early 30s. Why not keep your skin free from wrinkles for as long as possible?
