Botox® is a simple, non-surgical cosmetic procedure to smooth the deep, persistent facial lines that are caused by muscle activity. Botox® is a relatively short cosmetic treatment, involving a series of tiny injections that provide you with a rejuvenated look by smoothing crow’s feet, frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal lines across the forehead, worry lines around the mouth, and lines on the neck.
It relaxes the muscles that cause the age lines to form and keeps them relaxed up to four months. Individual results may vary. The Botox® treatment is FDA-approved and has been extensively tested. The benefits of Botox® have been widely covered by the media. It is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the United States and one of Aristocrat Plastic Surgery‘s most requested services.

Even though Botox® is not a surgical procedure, it is extremely important to choose a highly experienced and qualified physician. Doctors who are less familiar with the technique could leave you looking “frozen” or perpetually surprised. Dr. Tehrani and his trained injectors are intimately familiar with Botox®, as well as the intricate anatomy of the proposed injection areas on the face.
He has been given the distinction of ExpertInjector™, which fewer than 3% of doctors have qualified for. This qualifying organization is the only one to have the endorsement of the prestigious American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery.
Who is a Candidate for Botox®?
Botox® candidates include men and women who want to look more youthful and vital. Unlike plastic surgery, Botox® is very fast, very simple, and minimally invasive. Apart from wrinkle removal, Botox® may also be useful for migraine headaches, excessive sweating, and eye and neck muscle spasms.
The Botox® Treatment
Botox® is made from a highly purified protein that is very safe when administered by a trained physician, such as Dr. Tehrani. It relaxes the muscles in the face that cause wrinkles, thus smoothing the lines in the skin that make you look tired or angry.
To perform the Botox® treatment, Dr. Tehrani determines exactly where to administer several tiny injections to achieve the best aesthetic results. No anesthesia is required, although a cold pack or a topical anesthetic cream may be applied prior to injection.
The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes.

Recovery from Botox®
No downtime is required after Botox® treatment. You can return to work or other activities immediately after your appointment.
Discomfort is minimal and brief, and it is very unlikely that you will develop visible side effects, although some patients develop pale bruises at the injection site, which can easily be covered by makeup.
Within several days, you’ll see a marked improvement that may continue to improve for as long as a week and will last 4-6 months. Individual results may vary.
