Why Botox?

Why get Botox injections? Many reasons! The injectable toxin has remained a favorite anti-aging treatment since the 21st century began thanks its ability to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, including vertical lines between brows, Crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles. If considering Botox injections through your West Hollywood dermatologists at The Kopelson Clinic, review the following reasons why it might be the perfect anti-aging treatment for you.

Quick And Effective

Botox is commonly referred to as a “lunchtime procedure,” as sessions rarely take more than 30 minutes and are easily done on clients’ lunch breaks. Results are almost immediately noticeable and improve over the next few days.

No Recovery Time

While injection site bruising, swelling, and redness can occur following Botox injections, there’s virtually no real downtime involved. It’s possible to resume normal activities immediately after the procedure, though working out is prohibited for 24 hours lest the toxin migrate due to increased blood flow to the face. Compare that to a traditional facelift, which puts you out of commission for a month or more.


Botox is merely a series of injections. There’s no surgery involved, which means no anesthesia and long recovery process. This again makes Botox the arguably better choice than a facelift. Results might not be as long-lasting, however surgery is a major ordeal with the possibility of severe complications.

Natural Results

Another reason Botox remains a favorite anti-aging procedure is due to natural results. Clients look youthful and relaxed, not “stretched” the way so many who have undergone facelifts do. That’s yet another complaint about facelifts–the unnatural results, particularly among those on their third or fourth surgery.


At this time Botox is the only FDA-approved treatment for Crow’s feet and severe frown lines. It is approved for cosmetic use in a whopping 78 countries and is celebrated as a trusted treatment by dermatologists. The experts at The Kopelson Clinic, for example, have provided patients with outstanding Botox treatments for over 10 years.
