Facial Injectables in Pasadena, CA
Non-Surgical Options for Enhancing Your Youthful Appearance in Los Angeles County
The muscles on your face are often used to frown, concentrate, squint, or smile, which causes wrinkles. Wrinkles are formed by both active and subconscious muscle activation. BOTOX® relaxes your facial muscles and softens wrinkles over time when administered by our team at California Oculoplastics and Retina.
With regular treatments, you’ll notice a reduction in these wrinkles and an improvement in your appearance. Young adults are also prone to facial wrinkles caused by muscle use and facial movement! By using cosmetic injectables consistently, you can potentially prevent wrinkles caused by facial movement!
