Why Botox?: Top 5 Reasons

By: Dr. J. Timothy Katzen


  • Do you want a safe and minimally invasive option for facial rejuvenation?
  • Do you wish to improve facial wrinkles, such as the lines at the corners of your eyes (crow’s feet) or the lines in your forehead?
  • Are you seeking a preventive measure to facial aging?
  • Are you looking for a non-invasive alternative to a facelift for fine lines and wrinkles?

Botox is a revolutionary facial rejuvenation method to treat minor signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and “crow’s feet.” Botox is in high demand and utilizes a particular non-harmful chemical to temporarily paralyze the small facial muscles that contribute to wrinkles and fine lines.

What is Botox?

Botox is a non-invasive facial rejuvenation method that uses a non-harmful chemical to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is approved for ages 18 and up. Botox is a safe and effective way to treat and prevent the signs of aging.

Common Areas for Botox Injections Include:

  • Forehead
  • Between the eyebrows aka the glabellar, “bunny ears,” or “elevens”
  • Sides of the eyes aka the “crow’s feet”

Dr. J. Timothy Katzen, M.D., in Beverly Hills, CA, and Las Vegas, NV, provide his patients with quality Botox treatments, while adhering to safety and guidelines to ensure you great results.

Note: “Botox injection blocks certain chemical signals from nerves and temporarily relax the facial muscles that cause signs of aging like wrinkles in the forehead and fine lines around the eyes.”

Top 5 Reasons to Consider Botox:

  1. You have noticed facial signs of aging.

Do you have wrinkles and fine lines that you’d like gone? Botox is a great option for horizontal forehead wrinkles, wrinkles in between the eyebrows (also known as the “elevens”), and wrinkles on the sides of the eyes (also known as “crow’s feet”).

  1. Botox is a safe and FDA-approved cosmetic treatment to treat signs of aging.

The most significant aspect of Botox treatment is that it is FDA approved. This ensures the safety of this procedure and offers proper guidelines.

  1. Botox makes you look younger over time.

In general, Botox lasts about 3-4 months. However, everyone responds differently to the treatment, so duration can vary. In some patients, the result lasts for 3-4 months, and up to 8 months in others. The full result of Botox treatment will be visible in 7-10 days. Redoing your Botox before it wears off will allow you to maintain that young, fresh look without wrinkles.

  1. There is no hard and fast rule on when to begin Botox.

Some seek Botox earlier than others as a preventative measure, while others seek Botox after resting wrinkles have already developed. Botox can be used whether you have winkles/lines at rest or not. If you only have lines with expression/movement of your face, Botox can help you prevent permanent wrinkles and deep lines. If you have wrinkles at rest, Botox can help smoothen their appearance and prevent them from getting deeper.

  1. Your facial status indicates the need for Botox.

Your plastic surgeon or injector will examine your face to evaluate your areas of interest. You will be asked to make certain expressions with your face so your injector can properly assess injection sites.


Botox is a great option for wrinkles, whether at rest or with expression. The minimum age for Botox is 18 years old and this treatment is FDA approved. Consult with a plastic surgeon or your injector to learn if you are a good candidate for this treatment. During this time, your injector can evaluate your face, discuss your goals, and determine injection sites. Botox provides an overall rejuvenated and youthful face.
