BOTOX is a type of cosmetic injectable medication. Known as muscle relaxers, it is used to reduce wrinkles in the face that are caused by active muscles. It decreases muscle activity, thereby creating a smoother appearance in the skin. When Dr. Azizzadeh delivers BOTOX, he does so conservatively, using just enough in precise, targeted areas to produce younger looking skin without compromising oneâ€™s expression.
In the cosmetic world, facial fillers are injectable medications that can be used to fill in fine lines and creases throughout the face. As we age, many factors affect the appearance of our face, such as the sun, gravity and the excessive muscle movement that occurs throughout the face. Because of these forces, collagen beneath the skin is broken down, resulting in gaps that the skin falls into, forming wrinkles. With precise injection techniques, these wrinkles can be smoothed out by replacing the collagen that has been lost.

Laser Skin Resurfacing
In the cosmetic world, laser skin resurfacing is one of the most popular forms of facial rejuvenation. With the use of a Palomar StarLux-1540 non-ablative laser, patients reap the benefits of fractionated laser resurfacing. This means the laser pinpoints hundreds of spots per square inch of skin, leaving healthy skin in between for rapid healing and decreased risk. The laser penetrates the dermis, pushing out damaged skin and allowing the underlying skin to regrow with a healthy, radiant appearance.
The cosmetic industry is riddled with many different types of non-surgical skin tightening. As an internationally renowned expert in the field of facial rejuvenation, Dr. Azizzadeh personally investigated all such procedures before deciding Ultherapy was the most effective choice for his patients.
