Experienced board-certified ophthalmologist Mihir Y. Parikh proudly provides BOTOX® Cosmetic to patients living in San Diego, Carlsbad, and La Jolla. His eye for artistry and attention to detail have allowed him to produce consistently excellent results using BOTOX® Cosmetic, and he would welcome the opportunity to perform your enhancement procedure.
A Little about the Popular Treatment BOTOX® Cosmetic
Since being approved by the FDA in 2002, BOTOX® Cosmetic has been administered over 12 million times. The procedure is safe, effective, and quick. During a private, one-on-one consultation, Dr. Parikh will discuss your needs and goals and help you to establish realistic expectations for your results. Before administering the injections, he will cleanse the treatment site. BOTOX® Cosmetic will be injected into carefully targeted areas of the face to relax the muscles that are responsible for creating wrinkles.
Often referred to as a "lunchtime" procedure, BOTOX® Cosmetic can be masterfully injected into your skin by our skilled San Diego surgeon in the convenience of his luxurious, comfortable facility in La Jolla within a matter of minutes. The procedure doesn't require anesthesia, and patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately after their treatment. You will see noticeable improvements in the smoothness and youthfulness of your skin that will become even more apparent in the days following the procedure. In order to maintain your results, Dr. Parikh recommends that patients repeat their BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment every four to six months at his La Jolla vision center.
Risks and Side Effects
Dr. Parikh believes that in order for patients to make informative and sound decisions, they need to be properly educated about the procedures in which they are interested. Not only does our dynamic team provide a comprehensive overview of what to expect before, during, and after treatment, but they also inform patients of the risks and side effects associated with the procedure. Although uncommon, possible side effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic injections include swelling, bruising, allergic reactions, and difficulty speaking, breathing, or swallowing. Although BOTOX® Cosmetic can be used on people who are 18 to 65 years old, it is not recommended for patients who have skin infections or are allergic to other botilinum toxin products such as Dysport®, Myobloc®, or Xeomin®.
