BOTOX® Cosmetic

An Overview

With a reputation that precedes itself, BOTOX® Cosmetic is a proven, internationally recognized, non-surgical treatment that targets unwanted wrinkles and creases between the eyebrows. BOTOX® Cosmetic is the perfect solution for anyone looking for a safe, quick, and affordable means of removing those pesky laugh lines, forehead creases, and other premature facial wrinkles.

No matter your age, gender, or how much effort you put into caring for your skin, the daily contraction of muscle tissue tied to emotional expression (i.e. smiling, frowning, etc) will inevitably start leaving wrinkles in their wake. To prevent this, you can either refrain from expressing emotion (silly not to mention, impossible) or give injectable BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments a try. BOTOX® Cosmetic effectively relaxes the muscle tissue in the face, thereby limiting its pull on the skin's surface and smoothing out any wrinkles around and between your eyes and up into your forehead.

While BOTOX® Cosmetic utilizes minute amounts of the botulinum toxin to help instigate the wrinkle removal process, the treatment is FDA approved and much safer and less invasive than most surgical face-lift procedures.

The typical BOTOX® Cosmetic procedure rarely takes more than 10 minutes, involves several simple injections, and can provide results that last four months or more. The treatment usually shows the best results with patients between the ages of 27-48. Patients with deeper lines and less skin elasticity may want to consider an alternative, non-surgical procedure such as Thermage, Threadlift, and Titan.

Posted by JANET D. on .
I waited two hours to see the doctor, because he was really busy on this day, but all of the staff was left eye that had the drag line looks nice and filled out, but is still black and blue [bruised from the injection site] so I have been using Arnica and make up to cover up..The right eye with the cool laser treatment looks a lot better now, swelling has gone down considerably since last month- just waiting for bruise to go away on left eye.. Doctor Simon is always very nice ..

Dr Ourian is the MASTER of botox and fillers. Over the years I have had this done at different places, and there is no doubt Dr Ourian is by far the best. And he keeps at it until the results are what is expected. And the results always look natural.

Like How I Look, Even If The Results Took A Little Time

I like how I look now but it took more than 4 days. I was hoping that I would not have any lines after the number of units I was told I would be getting.

Laser Away Truly Cares About Their Patients

Posted by PATTY M. on .
I had my procedures done at Marina del Rey. My technician was Cheri. She is very knowledgeable and generally concerned about my wishes. I have been to several Doctors for several procedures but no one seemed as concerned about the final results as Cheri. She is very caring.

Dr. Ourian Is An Artist

Working with botox is not so easy, not everybody should do it, the face expression has to be natural. This Doctor is just amazing, he is an artist.

Have Been Quite Happy With Results At Epione

Great results, amazing doctor!

Dr. Simon Ourian Is A True Professional

Posted by MICHELLE R. on .
Dr. Simon Ourian is a true professional... totally painless. Currently I have two small lumps above each eyebrow, and hoping this will dissipate soon. When I called the office they were very helpful, and told me to use warm compresses, and massage area to see if this resolves the issue.

Love The Results

Posted by JULIE J. on .
Love the results, although I had severe bruising and swelling.

Dr. Ourian Is Simply The Best

Posted by ELAINE P. on .
Dr Ourian is very good with dermal fillers and the laser. The most amazing thing he's done for me was to use ultrasound to get rid of fat under my eyes, which were puffy and made shadows appearing like circles.

You Can't Go Wrong With Epione!

Posted by ELAINE P. on .
You can't go wrong. For $180-200 (depending on the plan you're on) you can get rid of the frown line between the eyebrows. Dr. Ourian gives you what you need for that price instead of selling Botox by the unit. I generally need about 30 units. For me that comes to about $6/unit. All by a REAL doctor with an artistic eye, in a beautiful office with nice assistants, apples, biscotti, cookies,truffles, infused water, coffee, and tea! Next door the first hour of parking in a safe structure is free. Generally I'm in and out of there within an hour when all I'm getting is Botox. Though I have never needed it, I'm assured of effectiveness because I can go back for a "touch up" within two weeks.

Relaxing, Pleasant Atmosphere & Fantastic Results!

Posted by KAREN H. on .
The results were fantastic but I more appreciated Roxana and Dr. Ourian. They were so nice and the atmosphere was very relaxing and pleasant. That for me made everything worthwhile but the results too were fantastic which was the icing on the cake! Epione is the best! Thank you so much.

Very Happy With Botox

Posted by MARGARITA P. on .
Had Botox done and I am very happy about it. I am thinking about a procedure the doctor talked to me about, a filler, maybe will have it done in 6 months to a year. Thank you very much to the Lady that made the appt. for me.

Didn't Get Overall Results I Was Looking (& Paid) For

Posted by REBECCA J. on .
I had the chem peel with poor results. I ended up experiencing scabbing and no have a subtle scar on one side of my face. The peel was too strong i suppose. Not sure it was my first. I liked the Radiesse but feel it filled one side of my face more than the other and I can notice it. I spent a lot on this service and feel I didn't get the overall filling result that I was hoping for. The botox worked great and am pleased with that. I will have that service again. If I can find these services for less and same quality I'll be looking elsewhere. the staff was great, however the price point I'm sure I can get lesser.

Hopefully The Botox Will Work

Posted by MICHELLE L. on .
Although the price for the procedure is a little higher than I anticipated, I am going forward with the procedure (Botox). And then based on the results that are achieved, I will make a decision as to whether I would continue this regimen of treatment with my current finances.

Botox Done Right

Posted by RUTZU L. on .

Afraid Of Needles Yet The Procedure Was Painless

Posted by PATTI P. on .
My appointment was with Paula. I am completely at ease with any procedure she will give me. I already had one appointment with her. She not only was thorough, she had a great bed-side manner and was really friendly, and MOST importantly, I felt no pain from my procedure. That in itself, is the main reason I will continue to receive procedures from Paula. I'm a baby with needles, and it was completely painless.

Waiting For Results

Posted by AZUCENA (SUZIE) U. on .
I had the procedure done and I was told to wait 7 days for the best results.

Ended Up Being OVER Treated!

Posted by BRENDA D. on .
I had my botox injections done in the facility immediately following "consult"--which wasn't a consult really--I've had the treatment done many times. They were behind schedule to begin with, so I waited for an hour and 15 min. to even get in the chair. I was encouraged to do 40 units of botox to get full affect of what was needed--which is more than I ever have used but I agreed b/c I had never had my crows feet treated. I have used botox for almost 10 years and am now age 32 for esp. my strong horizontal, expressive forehead lines. I've had it once before that my one side "paralyzes" really well, and the other side is still a bit expressive, creating a looks to be "twitch." This was immediately fixed with 2 units by that specific PA with 2 units. This time,again, it did happen, but on the other side of my face/eye which she agreed to try to fix and inject. So at this second visit, she injected an additional 9 units at only 3 injections. I did not know she was putting that many units in AGAIN! I'm 5 days out, and my forehead at those points of injection has almost bulges. Yeah, it certainly solved a problem there, but TOO much. And now, where she thought I could get a little bit of crows feet help, one side is fixed, while the that OTHER side she attempted to fix! still isn't working at all despite a injection bulge in my check! She tried to fix that with another 2 units, but instead I have a bulge at the injection point. I am not satisfied AT ALL--with a $440 expenditure. I don't know if the injector is unqualified or hadn't been to recent seminars/training? I've been doing botox injections for 10 years and because of moving out of state, tried this facility. She seemed apologetic and added those 9 botox units "free of charge"--well, it BETTER be, for that high amount of money paid for a frozen forehead that has bulges and my eye that may have had a initial miniscule natural droop is now quite droopy. I would NOT refer a friend. I should have checked the credentials and gone to a licensed doctor who has very recent credentials and training with botox injections. And I'm not looking forward to the next week and a half as I understand that botox continues to take full affect in 14 days, and now I'm only 5 days out!! I usually am easily satisfied overall. This is my face/eye... frozen. I was so initially PLEASED with my forehead response b/c it was IMMEDIATE--literally, but my eyes and the rest have to compensate for almost-over-treating, and that isn't satisfactory.

Microdermabrasion & Botox Treatments Are Wonderful

Posted by TANYA A. on .
The Microdermabrasion was wonderful. I am very pleased with the Botox service, however, I wish the provider was able to treat the neck cord area with Botox too but she was not able.
