What is Botox?
Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures with more than 6 million treatments administered each year. It smooths out wrinkles and achieves a youthful facial appearance without surgery. A top specialist in minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures, Dr. Michael Omidi recommends Botox to patients who desire a rejuvenated and natural look.

Botox injections reduce facial wrinkles and fine lines by temporarily paralyzing and relaxing facial muscles. This procedure not only contributes to firmness and elasticity of the facial skin, but also prevents new lines and wrinkles from appearing.
