Botox is an increasingly popular cosmetic procedure, largely because it is highly effective while also being minimally-invasive. This non-surgical procedure involves the use of dermal filler injections and is known for minimizing the appearance of lines and wrinkles on a person’s face. Dr. Kevin Sadati has been working to improve the appearance of Orange County patients for the last decade and has found that many people appreciate this alternative to traditional cosmetic surgery procedures. He has found that his Newport Beach patients benefit from understanding the facts about Botox before they have the procedure performed.
What is Botox?
While it’s commonly known as Botox, this dermal filler is actually botulinum toxin A. This dermal filler is used to treat areas that are showing lines and wrinkles. It works by paralyzing the muscles in that area temporarily, greatly minimizing the symptoms of aging on a person’s face and around their eyes. Dr. Kevin Sadati injects Botox into very specific muscles on the face, ensuring that botulinum toxin A cannot spread to other portions of the body. The effects of Botox are only temporary, and many patients find that they require additional treatments within 6 to 9 months after the initial application.
Effects of Botox
Botox paralyzes the muscles in the face so that lines, wrinkles and other signs of aging are no longer present. The use of Botox for cosmetic purposes was approved by the FDA in 2002. Botox is considered highly effective, and many patients enjoy the immediate results that they receive from this non-surgical procedure. Patients often report that they look younger and feel better about themselves after they have had a non-surgical facelift performed using Botox. Dr. Kevin Sadati is an expert in all forms of the facelift procedure and works to ensure that all of his patients get the natural-looking results they desire.
The procedure itself is very short and can often be performed in half an hour. Given the fact that it is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure, there is very little recovery time associated with Botox. Some patients might feel minor pain or discomfort at the site of the injection. However, most patients report that they are able to continue on with their daily lives. The only change is the fact that they look younger, they no longer have lines and wrinkles, and they are proud of the reflection that they see in the mirror once again.
In previous years, the majority of Botox patients were female, but now men are starting to realize that this is a beneficial treatment for them, as well. Regardless of gender, everyone is impacted by the symptoms of aging, and Botox can be used to treat those symptoms. Dr. Kevin Sadati takes the time to provide personalized treatment. He ensures that every patient is satisfied with the result of the procedure.
