BOTOX® Cosmetic in Pasadena, CA

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.

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.
