What is Botox?

Botox, also known as Botulinum Toxin Type A, is a cosmetic treatment that involves injecting a purified form of the botulinum toxin into specific muscles to temporarily paralyze or relax them. It is commonly used to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and lines, particularly in the forehead, between the eyebrows (glabellar lines), and around the eyes (crow’s feet)
Botox works by blocking the signals from the nerves to the muscles, preventing them from contracting. This relaxation of the muscles smooths out the overlying skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and lines. The effects of Botox typically last for three to six months, after which the treatment can be repeated if desired.
Botox is a minimally invasive procedure that is performed in a healthcare professional’s office. It is a quick procedure that usually takes only a few minutes to complete, and there is minimal downtime associated with it. Most people can resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment.

What is the process?

The Botox process involves a consultation with Dr. Chahin or our highly experienced nurse injector with 90210 Aesthetics to discuss cosmetic concerns. After assessing the facial muscles, Botox is injected using a fine needle without the need for anesthesia. The Botox solution is targeted to specific areas to temporarily relax the muscles, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines. Post-treatment, there may be slight redness or swelling at the injection sites, but these effects usually resolve quickly. Results become noticeable within a few days to a week, and follow-up sessions are recommended every 90 days for maintenance. It is crucial to seek treatment from skilled professionals, like those at our practice, to ensure safe and effective outcomes.

Benefits of Botox

Wrinkle reduction

Botox is primarily used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face. It can smooth out forehead lines, frown lines between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet around the eyes, giving the face a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

Non-surgical approach

Botox offers a non-surgical alternative to more invasive procedures like facelifts or brow lifts. It is a minimally invasive treatment that involves no incisions or anesthesia, making it a convenient option for those who prefer non-surgical interventions.

Quick and convenient

Botox treatments are typically quick, often taking just a few minutes to complete. The injections are performed in our office, and most people can resume their daily activities immediately afterward. This makes it a convenient option for individuals with busy lifestyles.

Temporary results

Botox provides temporary results, typically lasting three to six months. This can be advantageous for those who want to try out the treatment without committing to permanent changes. If desired, the treatment can be repeated to maintain the desired results.


Apart from its cosmetic uses, Botox has various medical applications. It can be used to treat conditions such as muscle spasms, excessive sweating, chronic migraines, and certain bladder and bowel disorders. Its versatility makes it a valuable treatment option in both cosmetic and medical fields.
Procedure Timeline

During the consultation, you will meet with Dr. Chahin or a nurse injector with 90210 Aesthetics to discuss your goals, concerns, and medical history. They will assess your suitability for the procedure and explain the process in detail.


Once you decide to proceed with the Botox procedure, you will be given guidelines to follow before the treatment. These may include avoiding blood-thinning medications, alcohol, and certain supplements that could increase the risk of bruising.


Botox injections are typically quick and straightforward, taking only a few minutes to complete. Dr. Chahin or the nurse injector will cleanse the treatment area and may apply a numbing cream if needed. Then a fine needle will be used to inject Botox into specific muscles of the targeted area.


After the injections, you'll be advised to avoid rubbing or massaging the treated area to prevent the Botox from spreading to unintended muscles. Dr. Chahin or your nurse injector may also provide some aftercare instructions.


It usually takes a few days to a week for the effects of Botox to become noticeable. Over the next two weeks, you'll see the full results as the treated muscles relax and the wrinkles diminish. A follow-up appointment may be scheduled to assess the results and address any concerns you may have.
