Botox is a treatment to smooth fine lines and wrinkles while enhancing and softening facial features. It is the single most popular cosmetic treatment performed in the United States.
Botox can dramatically soften the appearance of facial wrinkles and provide a more rested and youthful appearance.*
Smooth Away Wrinkles
The stresses of daily life take their toll on the appearance of our face. Both women and men frequently complain of smile, worry, and frown lines that appear around the forehead, eyes, and mouth.
Botulinum type A (commonly known as brand names Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin) is a protein that relaxes the facial muscles that cause facial lines.
Botox treatment will not only help you look younger, but more refreshed, relaxed, and pleasant. Botox is also very popular and effective as a preventive treatment to slow down the appearance of wrinkles.
Are you bothered by wrinkles?
You may be a good candidate for Botox if you are bothered by the appearance of facial wrinkles and wish to look younger or more relaxed.
The most commonly treated areas are those areas where muscle activity most influences facial features:
Botox can also help improve the following conditions:
How Botox is Performed
Botox is administered as a small series of quick injections that are performed in the office. Ice will be used to numb the treated areas to make the injections more comfortable. The injections are described by most patient as either painless or a quick pinch. The procedure takes just a few minutes to perform.
No Downtime & No Wrinkles
There is no downtime after Botox treatment. You should expect temporary swelling and redness that usually subsides within 15 minutes. There is a slight chance of bruising. It is recommended not to touch the area for at least 4 hours and not to do any strenuous activity to avoid moving the medicine to different areas.*
Do Your Homework
A highly experienced injector is important for obtaining natural, noticeable results.
Many people think that because Botox is advertised in day spas and other non-medical offices, Botox injections are on the same level as a manicure, facial, or haircut. This could not be further from the truth! Though non-surgical, Botox injections are a medical procedure that requires specific training, knowledge, and skill to administer safely and effectively.
When selecting a provider for injectable treatments, give your decision the same level of care and scrutiny as you would for a surgical procedure. While many doctors begin advertising Botox treatments after attending a weekend course in injectables, only board certified plastic surgeons have extensive knowledge of facial anatomy, a well-developed aesthetic eye, and a surgeon’s skill and precision.
A Plastic Surgeon is The Most Skilled Injector of Botox
Whomever you choose, make sure your provider has a proven background in facial aesthetic medicine and surgery as well as training and substantial experience performing Botox injections. At many medical spas (as well as even some plastic surgery offices), Botox injections are administered by nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, or general medical doctors. While these providers are likely to be competent with these procedures, their skill level, knowledge, experience — and consequently results — simply can’t compare to the expertise of a board certified plastic surgeon. Botox injections are commonly learned at weekend courses with a standardized approach that uses standardized dosages and injection points. However, each patient has unique anatomy and muscles, so a detailed understanding of facial anatomy and individualized treatment plans are needed to obtain consistently excellent and natural results. At 77 Plastic Surgery, Dr. Larry Fan wants to provide the very best results for our patients, so he insists on performing all Botox injection treatments himself. Dr. Fan has performed thousands of Botox injections, and he will help you develop a customized treatment plan designed just for you.

Turn Back The Hands of Time
After years of using our facial muscles constantly, most of us will notice expression lines that stay even when our face is at rest. With one treatment, Botox can smooth out these lines and give subtle changes by lifting the brow and softening fine lines. The effects of treatment will be seen 1-2 weeks after treatment and will last 3-4 months. Follow up treatments are recommended to maintain results.
Botox treatment is also very popular as a preventive treatment to slow down the appearance of smile, frown, and worry lines.
