Q & A with Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeons, Dr. Payman Danielpour and Dr. John Layke about the pros and cons of botox.

Q: When do I know I’m ready for botox?
A: You should do botox before the formation of frown lines, crows feet or forehead wrinkles.

Q: I don’t want people to know I have botox. How can you make it look natural?
A: At Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group, we believe helping our patients bring out their natural beauty by enhancing and refining not changing their appearance. We are known for putting less botox than most surgeons. You can always add more, but you can’t take it away.

Q: Typically, how often will I need to come in for botox once I start?
A: Everyone is different. We normally recommend three times a year, but some people can come in twice a year depending on the strength of their muscles.

Q: If I’m going to a party and I want to get rid of my lines how far in advance should I come in?
A: Generally, at least a week is recommended for the botox to take effect. We have seen it take effect in 48 hours and sometimes as long as two weeks.

Q: Is botox safe during pregnancy and while I am breastfeeding?
A: Absolutely not.

Q: Can botox help relieve my migraine pain?
A: Yes. We have great success in alleviating migraine pain in the majority of our patients.

Q: Are there any long term detrimental effects from using botox?
A: No
