When you look in the mirror, are you distressed about wrinkles or fine lines on your forehead and near your eyes? Commonly called dynamic lines, these skin concerns develop from repetitive facial movements, including smiling, frowning, and squinting. As women and men mature, these lines and wrinkles eventually stay put and can make them appear tired. Thanks to BOTOX Cosmetic treatments, it is now possible to temporarily minimize the formation of moderate to severe forehead creases, Crow's feet, and frown lines. BOTOX is a purified type A strain of the botulinum toxin. It works to temporarily "freeze" the muscles that cause those expressions, letting the overlying skin recover on its own. Board-certified plastic surgeon and hand surgeon Dr. Omar Ahmed is proud to offer BOTOX services to help you attain a more youthful, refreshed appearance. Our team welcomes you to get in touch with our office in Pasadena, CA to learn more.
"Dr.Ahmed got skills!! I could not be happier with the results of my tummy tuck and lipo. He gave me back my pre baby body, and then some! I went on 5 consultations prior to him. A few minutes into my consultation with Dr.Ahmed I knew he was the one. He is honest, and didn’t try to sell me up on procedures like other plastic surgeons I saw previously. He listened and answered my questions patiently and explained in great detail what my procedure would be like. No one else took that kind of time. Surgery day was calm and his staff is super friendly and caring. After surgery he was always available to answer my questions and making appointments with his staff was easy and they worked with my crazy schedule every time. Dr.Ahmed has changed my life and I am forever grateful. I recommend him to everyone I know."- P. / Healthgrades / Sep 14, 2020
"Dr. Omar Ahmed is a highly skilled and talented surgeon. He is honest, down to earth, and his bedside manner is excellent. I had a tummy tuck, 360 lipo and a BBL. It was a transformation beyond my expectations. I am extremely happy with the results, and recommended him to anyone and everyone I know who wants cosmetic surgery. I will be returning to him for a breast augmentation in 6 months. Thanks Doc, you changed my life!"- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Aug 05, 2020
"Dr. Ahmed is extremely kind and very informative. He's considerate and always attentive to my mom's needs and concerns. My mom has had several surgeries and had no complications whatsoever. I appreciate his direct approach and his willingness to answer all my questions. My mom says she always feels safe with him. Highly recommend him and his staff. His assistant Angelina is a delight to work with. We wish you all the best, Robin Appleby and Barbara Curry."- R.A. / Google / Sep 08, 2019
"In February 2018, I tumbled down the stairs of my office building. I sustained a four-inch gash in my head that bled profusely. I was sent to Methodist Hospital in Arcadia. They called Dr Ahmed to stitch up my head. My Blue Shield PPO did not want to pay his bill of $7,000, which I thought was very reasonable, given the very skillful job he did, but they paid the ER Doctor’s $5,000 bill. Dr Ahmed was the only doctor that I saw that day, despite a bad concussion."- J.S. / Yelp / Apr 25, 2019
Should I Get BOTOX?
Men and women who prefer a minimally invasive option to minimize forehead wrinkles, frown lines, or Crow's feet may be excellent candidates for BOTOX at Omar Ahmed, M.D. It can be a great cosmetic solution if you are experiencing noticeable "11" lines between the eyes (glabellar lines) that give you a withered or aging facial appearance. Though younger adults between the ages of 20 – 30 may not yet present with the early signs of aging, BOTOX may be administered as a preventive option to stave off the process of aging by temporarily reducing or delaying the advancement of facial lines.
How Does BOTOX Work?
Since BOTOX is a quick, in-office procedure, your injections can commonly be carried out during the same visit as your first consultation. The formula will be injected into the problem areas of your brow or face using a fine-gauge needle. The treatment itself takes approximately 5 – 10 minutes to perform, and many people notice only slight discomfort (like a pinching or pinprick sensation). Following your session, you may leave our Pasadena, CA facility and get back to your day.
Expected BOTOX Results
It is common to have a little minor bruising, swelling, and redness in the treatment sites, but this will likely not persist. Your technician may recommend that you refrain from strenuous exercise and avoid touching the injection sites for the next day or so. Over the course of 48 – 72 hours, you will likely start to notice your smoother, firmer skin. BOTOX Cosmetic typically provides up to four months of youthful, natural-looking improvements for the majority of women and men. Dr. Ahmed will decide how frequently you should receive treatments as part of a customized plan to attain your desired goals.
