Botox & Fillers

Botox

Botulinum Toxin or Botox is the most popular nonsurgical procedure in the U.S. with over 4.5 million of them performed last year!

What is Botox?

Botox received FDA approval in 2002 for cosmetic treatment aimed at enhancing the youthful appearance of the face by eliminating wrinkles and fine lines. It gets its name from a toxin that is produced by a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum. Given in the form of injections by qualified and trained surgeons, such as Dr. Nassif, our Beverly Hills Botox is used to treat many conditions such as:

  • Smoothening out of wrinkles, crow’s feet, frown lines
  • Reduce underarm sweating
  • Uncontrolled blinking known as blepharospasm
  • Muscular contractions caused in a neurological disorder called Cervical dystonia
  • Overactive bladder
  • Chronic migraine

Fillers

While some more extreme facial flaws require surgery to correct, the most effective facial fillers can produce dramatic improvements without the need for surgery. Aging skin loses its firm, taut quality as the body stops producing the quantity of collagen and elastin it produced in our younger years. As the skin and tissue thins, wrinkles, creases, and grooves begin to appear. Dr. Paul Nassif, as a leading authority on cosmetic surgery, revision surgery, and a range of non-surgical treatments, offers his patients the option of using fillers to plump the skin and lips and create a natural looking, more youthful appearance.

Fillers

Will a Filler Work For Me?

If you look in the mirror and see wrinkles, lines, and creases, you may be a good candidate for treatment with fillers. These fillers function in different ways, and each is used to treat a specific condition. Every filler used in our Beverly Hills clinic is specifically chosen as the most appropriate for the patient’s unique condition and the area of the face being treated. When used correctly or in combination with our other non-surgical treatments, fillers can take years off your appearance.

Every area of the face is unique in its type of skin, underlying tissue and muscle structure, and mobility. Fillers work to smooth out the treated area correctly.

What Filler We Use

Juvederm: One of the leading names in dermal fillers, the JUVEDERM FAMILY of products are made from synthetic hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance. Perfect for fine lines and adding facial volume, Juvederm Ultra was developed specifically to treat areas with thinner skin effectively, and Juvederm Ultra XC is often the perfect filler to add lip volume. Hyaluronic acid absorbs water, causing a plumping effect.
