What is Botox Cosmetic?
Botox is an injectable medicine formulated from the muscle relaxant, Botulinum toxin. It temporarily
paralyzes the precise facial muscles that cause deep wrinkles and fine lines, offering a quick and virtually
pain-free way to achieve a smooth, youthful and well-rested appearance.
Is Botox Safe?
Botox has been the number one injectable treatment in America for many years with over 6.6 million cosmetic treatments delivered in 2014 alone. Some patients have expressed concern that the botulinum toxin is often cited as the cause of food poisoning outbreaks and wonder how it is safe as a cosmetic injectable. The answer is that a sanitized minute quantity of only one strain, botulinum toxin A, is FDA cleared for use medically and cosmetically. It is not only safe as a cosmetic injectable; it provides relief for many medical conditions including migraine, crossed eyes and facial paralysis.
At Marcus Medical Spa you can be confident that we deliver among the best Botox Manhattan Beach and Redondo Beach residents could hope to find. Our highly trained medical professionals know exactly where to place the product and more importantly know when to stop. Unsatisfactory cosmetic results are frequently traced back to untrained technicians being allowed to provide Botox injections. Marcus Medical Spa is proud of the caliber of our medical staff and aesthetic technicians who are fully trained and focused on providing the safest and most reliable Botox Long Beach can boast.

What can I expect during Botox treatments?
Our highly trained specialists are experts at administering Botox to ensure natural-looking results that
never appear frozen or overdone. During your initial consultation, we will carefully evaluate your facial
anatomy and signs of aging as a whole, before composing a personalized treatment plan designed to use Botox
to treat wrinkles throughout your face in the most natural way possible.
During the actual injections, we will ask you to contract your facial muscles so we can determine where to
inject the medicine based on your unique signs of aging and cosmetic goals. From there, we may apply ice or
a numbing cream to the area to ensure your comfort, before administering Botox directly into the muscles
causing your deep lines and wrinkles. The entire treatment takes approximately ten minutes and is virtually
pain-free, with the vast majority of our clients only reporting mild discomfort at most.
What aftercare is associated with Botox?
After your Botox in Manhattan Beach, there are specific aftercare guidelines you’ll need to follow to ensure an
optimal result. To begin, you’ll want to avoid rubbing your face, exercising and sleeping on your stomach
immediately after treatment, as doing so could cause the Botox to move to another location on your face.
