Along with Botox and fillers, we also offer several innovative laser skin treatments that are very effective in minimizing fine lines and wrinkles on the face.

On September 11, 2013, the FDA announced a new approval for Botox Cosmetic to improve the appearance of crow’s feet. The FDA originally approved Botox in 2002 to minimize the appearance of frown lines, also known as glabellar lines. CENTER for Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery skin care expert Jodi Slavica, RN, responds to the new approval.

"Botox Cosmetic, when injected by a highly trained professional, is a safe and effective way to minimize the appearance of wrinkles. Patients can now be assured of its safety and efficacy in improving the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes," explained Nurse Jodi Slavica.

Botox Cosmetic is a neuromodulator medication that is injected into specific muscles underneath facial wrinkles. The Botox relaxes the muscles and results in smoother, wrinkle-free skin. Botox is a temporary treatment that generally lasts up to 6 months.

"When a patient comes in for Botox, they can get the Botox injected into several treatment areas in one session. So, a patient who comes in for the minimization of crow’s feet, can also have Botox injected into the frown lines for a more youthful appearance," said Nurse Jodi.

At the CENTER for Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery, Jodi Slavica works alongside world-renowned facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Babak Azizzadeh, MD, FACS. Together, they provide cutting-edge skin rejuvenation treatments, including Botox and facial fillers for the minimization of wrinkles on the face.

"Along with Botox and fillers, we also offer several innovative laser skin treatments that are very effective in minimizing fine lines and wrinkles on the face. We create a customized treatment plan for each patient using the most appropriate combination of treatments to meet the individual’s needs," said Nurse Jodi Slavica.

Dr. Babak Azizzadeh is the author of five bestselling books, including the popular consumer guidebook "Beverly Hills Beauty Secrets." He was recognized as a Beauty Expert in 2012, and has been featured in popular media outlets such as Entertainment Tonight, The Doctors, LA Times and the NY Times. Dr. Azizzadeh serves on the Physician Advisory Board of Sanofi-Aventis, Mysoscience, Mentor, and SkinMedica, and was awarded the RealSelf Top Botox Experts Award in 2011.
