Dr. Rigor offers Botox® treatments to the residents of Pasadena, CA. We also service Los Angeles, CA. Botox®, or botulinum toxin, works by weakening the muscles of your face that cause fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes and on your forehead. When you frown or experience stress, you contract the certain facial muscles. This contraction of the muscles forms the fine lines and wrinkles. Weakening the muscles with Botox® treatments keeps you from contracting these muscles.
How can Botox® treatments by Dr. Rigor improve my appearance?
Many people in Pasadena and Los Angeles, CA rely on Dr. Rigor for their Botox® treatments. After your Botox® treatment with Dr. Rigor, you see a noticeable decrease in the fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes and on your forehead. You may see immediate results, or the improvement may take one week. Over time, you learn to not contract the muscles, and, as a result, you do not develop deeper creases.
What happens during the Botox® treatment at Rigor Dermatology & Laser Center?
Typically, Botox® treatments do not require anesthesia. Using a tiny needle, Dr. Rigor injects Botox® into specific muscles around your eyes and on your forehead. The location and number of injections depends on your individual treatment plan. In general, your Botox® treatment will take 15 minutes, and you may need to repeat the Botox® treatments every three to four months.
