Many individuals feel younger than the face they see in the mirror. Skin wrinkles can begin to appear as a result of aging, regular sleeping positions, or a reduction in weight. Wrinkling is also promoted by characteristic facial positions, sun damage, lack of hydration, and smoking. The muscles of facial expression that cause wrinkles are located around the eyes and mouth, forehead, and nose. Facial rejuvenation for skin wrinkles in these areas has been significantly impacted by botulinum toxin.
Botox Or Dysport Injections
A Botulinum toxin cosmetic procedure has been a rewarding solution for many patients who find their appearance has been vastly improved along with their self-confidence. The procedure must be done under a skilled and properly certified doctor’s care that specializes in the condition and has prior experience with injecting the treatments. Toxin injections block specific chemical signals from the facial nerves that cause muscles to contract. Facial muscles are relaxed that trigger wrinkles, including:
Frown lines between the eyebrows
Forehead wrinklesWrinkles are usually reduced by 80-100% depending on the age at which botox therapy was initiated.
The procedure involves injecting tiny amounts of Botox or Dysport into the forehead, the glabella (area between eyebrows and above nose), and crow’s feet at different sites using a very thin needle. Some individuals prefer to have their skin numbed prior to the injections which may be accomplished by three methods:
Numbing medications injected into the skin
Prescription creams applied
Cold sprays directed at the skin for a few secondsDr. Nazarian typically uses a topical numbing medication unless the patient is time restricted. The cream has to be applied for 30 minutes to effectively numb the skin. The number of injections depends on several factors including the size of the area being treated. The Botox or Dysport cosmetic procedure generally takes five to ten minutes to complete.
After The Procedure
Patients are able to return to their regular daily schedule immediately after the procedure with the minimum caution of not rubbing the injected areas. Results are observable within five to seven days and last for approximately three months. Patients report few side effects and those reported are mild and cause no disruption to their daily life. When the procedure is done correctly, under a plastic surgeon’s care, a patient’s best aesthetic results can be achieved.

I totally recommend her to anyone who is looking for an excellent Dr. If I would of known about her before, I would of done this procedure years ago.This is my first time writing a review, but I had to share this experience because I know there are people looking for a good Dr they can trust. I am truly very happy with Dr . Nazarian. Again thank you very much for doing such a great job.
Dr. Nazarian is the a 5 star plastic surgeon! I had a growing scalp mass above my left ear, kinda like a cyst, she told me it was called lipoma. Anyway she removed the cyst in her office even when I was told by other doctors that it had to be done at a hospital which is more cost full and inconvenient for your wallet. She’s a great doctor and definitely recommend anyone to visit her office, her receptionist is on point and is very kind, helpful, and welcoming when visiting the office or calling about your appointment.
Besides being a great surgeon, Dr Nazarian carries a line for PREGNANT women called Spa Momma which is made-in-the-USA with no lead, phthalates, formaldehyde, propylene glycol, and no pregnancy-contraindicated aromatherapy oils!!!!!! I am obsessed with the body oil and the body scrub! I was having some major itching issues and I tried everything but nothing really helped. Then I tried the itchies body oil and it was the first relief I had had in months and I have no stretch marks!!!!!!!! Dr Nazarian is so up to date and science based and is willing to take time and help you out no matter what you issue is!!! I love her professionalism and recommend 110%!
