What Is BOTOX?
To diminish the telltale signs of aging and prevent lines, wrinkles, and folds of skin from forming on the forehead and upper face, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Timothy Katzen is proud to offer BOTOX to his Beverly Hills, CA patients. This nonsurgical facial rejuvenation treatment produces amazing results and is equally popular among both men and women. BOTOX can make a dramatic improvement to the look of wrinkles, which form as the result of facial expressions and muscle movement. Although BOTOX does prevent the forehead muscles from contracting and creating wrinkles, static wrinkles will remain. The formula is a purified strain of botulinum toxin (type A) that temporarily blocks the movements of the underlying tissue and muscle. To ease the appearance of these lines and wrinkles, BOTOX is injected to relax and soften the skin. This specific injection is most commonly placed by Dr. Katzen between the brows where the number "11" appears, on the Crow's feet, and throughout the forehead.
"My go to doctor for Botox. - I’ve been going to Dr. Katzen for botox. His prices are competitive. I love that every so often, he offers Saturday appointments which is perfect for my schedule. It’s nice to see Dr. Katzen every few months. He makes me look younger and vibrant! One day, when the time comes where I need some plastic surgery work done, he is my go to surgeon."- V.5. / RealSelf / Apr 18, 2019
"Full Trust in Dr. Katzen to Reconstruct my Body. - After Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, I lost 114 lbs. I had saggy skin pretty much all over. I had stages of surgeries with Dr. Katzen. So far, I’ve had the circumferential body lift, liposuction of thighs, medial thigh lift, brachioplasty, mastopexy, breast aug, torsoplasty and botox (yes, I noticed more wrinkles on my face after weight loss). Between all the surgeries, Dr. Katzen removed a total of 16 lbs of extra skin. I had full trust in Dr. Katzen to reconstruct my body. He is amazing both surgically and emotionally. I couldn’t have asked for a better surgeon."- P.C. / RealSelf / Apr 18, 2019
"Loving my Enhanced Look. - Many of my friends have had some kind of cosmetic work done and they keep looking better and better. I’m new to this and felt extremely nervous about having anything done. I took baby steps and had botox, I loved it. Then I got more brave and scheduled a breast augmentation. I didn’t go too crazy with the size and wanted to look more natural. I told Dr. Katzen while I was under anesthesia if he could do a chemical peel as well. I am loving my new look. I don’t look “plastic”, just enough enhancements to notice a big improvement in my look. I dress differently now and noticed I have a little extra confidence with myself. Overall, I am pleased with Dr. Katzen’s work, who knows, he may see me again soon."- T. / RealSelf / Apr 18, 2019
"Found a New Doctor for Botox - My doctor that I normally go to for minor cosmetic procedures moved, so I found Dr. Katzen. I simply had Botox with Dr. Katzen but I wanted to write this review to let you know how I love this office so much. The front office had beautiful smiles to greet me when I arrived. I only waited for about 10 minutes to see Dr. Katzen. He has this warm personality that makes you feel important and welcomed. I am definitely coming back to Dr. Katzen for my routine Botox and other things."- S.4. / RealSelf / Jun 18, 2019
"Great experience with Botox - I just came in for some botox with Dr. Katzen. As usual, I am very pleased with it. He's always kind and service at the office has always been great. I highly recommend him. I'll be seeing him again in a few months. Oh, his pricing is one of the best around town. Look out for his specials."- G. / RealSelf / Apr 18, 2018
Am I an Ideal Candidate for BOTOX?
BOTOX is used for individuals who hope to diminish and soften the appearance of wrinkles, lines, and moderate folds on their face with nonsurgical methods. This injectable also serves as a preventive treatment for younger patients who have yet to develop static wrinkles. BOTOX is an effective, minimally invasive solution for those who have obvious forehead lines, frown lines between the brows, and for Crow's feet around the eyes. If you have deeper lines, a combination of BOTOX and a filler may be a better option. For those who are older with more severe wrinkles and skin laxity, you may qualify for a facelift. A facelift will produce a more dramatic result, and the results are meant to last years. J. Timothy Katzen, M.D. Beverly Hills offers various facelifts, blepharoplasties, and brow lifts as great options for patients seeking facial rejuvenation.
How Does BOTOX Work?
BOTOX injectable treatments are done as an outpatient procedure here in our Beverly Hills, CA office. If it's your first time to visit us for BOTOX, we typically administer the injection right after your consultation. You will be asked to make various facial expressions that engage the forehead muscles, such as squinting, frowning, etc., which will allow us to mark where the injections should be placed. The skin will be cleansed and BOTOX will be injected under the skin using a fine needle, followed by a cold compress to help decrease discomfort, swelling, and bruising. You can request a numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable, but this is generally not needed. BOTOX injections take about 10 – 15 minutes to complete, after which you can return to your normal activities.
What Results Can I Expect From BOTOX?
After your BOTOX session, you will be allowed to return to your normal routines. However, strenuous activities, like exercise, should be ceased for at least a day. You will be asked to sleep with your head propped up for the first night after your treatment. You also should not touch your face as this could spread the product to other areas. The treated areas of the face may appear bruised, red, or swollen for a couple of days, but you will not have any severe or lasting side effects. In the majority of cases, it takes about 5 – 7 days before the full effects of BOTOX become visible. The results generally last 3 – 4 months. You should speak to your injector about how often to schedule touch-up appointments at J. Timothy Katzen, M.D. Beverly Hills to refresh your results.
Just Express Yourself
With BOTOX, you can laugh, smile, frown, and make any expression you want without having to worry about developing fine lines and wrinkles. To smooth out lines throughout your face and refresh your overall look, we invite you to schedule a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Timothy Katzen in Beverly Hills, CA to learn more about this revolutionary nonsurgical injectable.
