Contrary to popular belief, Botox® is a simple procedure that has a variety of unique benefits to the individual. At Novus Anti-Aging Center, Inc, we can use Botox® for a variety of reasons beyond enhancing one’s appearance. Botox® injections can help with enhancing aesthetic appearances such as the frown lines between the eyebrows, crow’s-feet or treat wrinkles on the forehead.
Botox® can also help treat:
- Repetitive neck spasms
- Excessive sweating
- Overactive bladder
- Lazy Eye or eye twitching
- Chronic migraines (in some cases)
- TMJ symptoms
- Low lip line
- Difficulty adjusting to a new pair of dentures
Botox contains the botulinum toxin that interferes with specific chemical signals to the nerves that helps to prevent muscle contraction. The botulinum toxin attaches to the nerve endings of the muscles and affects the nerve transmission. By preventing contraction, the skin will no longer wrinkle or drastically slow down the process.
While the procedure will involve an injection, we take every necessary precaution to ensure that the patient does not feel any pain during this procedure. We can also pair this procedure to follow or precede other ones to avoid making too many extra trips in a short period of time.
We understand that many people may be skeptical or unsure of the Botox® procedure and the benefits. Below are a few common questions that people may have about Botox®. If you have another question that is not on this page, give us a call at (310) 907-8465. We will be happy to go over any and all questions that you have before helping you draw out your best self.
How does Botox® treatment work?
Botox® treatment involves an injection of botulinum toxin that helps to prevent muscle contraction by attaching to the nerve endings of muscles. Before completing the procedure, we will need to have our team examine your health and determine if Botox® is the best choice of procedure.
Once we gather important health information, we will determine if Botox® will be an effective treatment option for you. If it is, we will then go over the process itself and schedule an appointment for the procedure. After the procedure, the patient will begin to see improvement in 3 to 10 days.

How long does a procedure take?
The amount of time the procedure will take depends entirely on the type of Botox® and amount of Botox® necessary. At Novus Anti-Aging Center, Inc, our team can go over the variety of uses that Botox® can offer you. We recommend that you ask all questions about the procedure with The Team at a consultation meeting.
We will address all concerns and questions prior to completing the procedure. In many cases, the procedure may only take around an hour altogether. We will go over the exact length of the procedure with you during the consultation.
What is the cost?
The cost of a Botox® procedure and treatment will depend on several factors, which include:
- Your health insurance coverage
- Your current state of health
- Any allergies
- If you received a Botox® treatment in the last four to six months prior to this appointment
- The type of Botox® you want and the area of the body you want it in
We will help determine the cost of the procedure after we go over the type of procedure and all of the necessary steps.
Is the treatment painful?
Contrary to popular belief, a Botox® procedure is not painful and you will be able to remain calm during the procedure. While the idea of needles near one’s face is not the best mental image, we can ensure that it is not as bad as some might believe. We will use a thin needle and inject small amounts of botulinum toxin into the system.
We can complete this procedure fairly quickly and with little to no pain. The patient will also be able to return to work or other tasks of daily life right after the procedure.
What can I expect for recovery time after the treatment?
You will be able to return to your daily activities directly following the procedure. It is important to avoid rubbing or massaging the areas we treat with Botox® since it will cause the toxin to move toward another area of the body. You can also call us if there are any other odd health issues you begin to notice following the procedure.
When will I begin to notice the results?
The results can take around 3 to 10 days to fully take effect. However, people will not be able to notice that you went through a Botox® treatment, but will notice your new appearance.
The technological advancements of modern medicine allow for dental professionals to provide more options than ever before. Dentistry can now offer patients more customizable options for cosmetic work on the size, shape and color of teeth. Additionally, dentists can now offer patients the chance to continue enhancing specific features on the face such as removing wrinkles and highlighting cheekbones.
Anyone who is interested in cosmetic dentistry or a smile makeover will be excited to hear that there are more options and customizations to choose when enhancing one’s appearance. As we age, the teeth will begin to yellow and fade along with the appearance of the smile beginning to sag. When this happens, people feel powerless in changing or stopping this natural occurrence altogether. Fortunately, we have the solution with Juvéderm®.
We can use Juvéderm® in conjunction with Botox® treatments, if necessary. Patients will be able to have the dream smile they want without intensive procedures or surgery. Below are a few questions that we hear on a regular basis about Juvéderm® and the treatment process. If your question is not on this page, give us a call at (310) 907-8465 and we will be happy to answer any other questions.
What is Juvéderm®?
Juvéderm® consists of hyaluronic acid fillers that can add volume to different areas of the face without the need for surgery. With the appearance of a clear gel, Juvéderm® requires a medical professional to administer it into specific areas of the face. With Juvéderm®, we can help highlight and enhance specific areas of one’s face as part of a cosmetic dental treatment.
Patients are able to go over possible options and describe what they want for the procedure. We will have all the necessary resources available and be free to go over any other factors the patient needs to know.

How does Juvéderm® work?
Juvéderm® is a component that we will inject into certain areas of the face with a thin needle. The procedure will not take long and is not painful. We will place specific amounts of Juvéderm® into certain areas of the face to enhance the patient’s appearance.
Juvéderm® helps to create a more uplifted appearance in the face. From there, the patient will take several days to see the positive change in appearance. Patients do not need to worry about an adverse reaction to Juvéderm® since we will take in the patient’s medical history and any forms of allergy before going through with the procedure.
How much does Juvéderm® cost?
The price of the Juvéderm® treatment will vary on the individual’s insurance coverage and the type of Juvéderm® procedure the patient chooses. We will be happy to go over the possible price range and insurance coverage with you during a consultation. At this time, we will also determine if there are any other key factors that may alter the Juvéderm® process.
Can I use Juvéderm® at home without professional medical assistance?
No. It is not safe for someone to use Juvéderm® without a medical professional who has the proper training to administer Juvéderm® without adverse side effects. A medical professional can also ensure that the process goes smoothly and does not harm the patient. Without the necessary medical training and knowledge, an individual can cause more issues for his or her health.
Will the Juvéderm® process be painful?
The procedure itself will not hurt in most cases. While it does require the use of a thin needle, there is a pain-reducing component known as lidocaine that can help relieve any pain one might feel during the procedure. We can also go over other pain relief options following the procedure.
In some cases, patients may experience some soreness in the areas of the face following the procedure. However, the soreness will dissipate fairly quickly and we can recommend certain medications to help relieve any discomfort.
How long will the process take?
The amount of time a Juvéderm® treatment session takes will depend on the individual, the amount of Juvéderm® we are using and the areas of the face we are treating. In many cases, the entire appointment will only take an hour and the patient can return to their daily routine immediately after.
When will I start to see results?
Patients will begin to see a difference after the procedure and continue to see improvement over the next several days.
