Dr. Rady Rahban, a Beverly Hills Board Certified Plastic Surgeon tells HL, “There is a three prong approaches to noninvasive procedures that enhance one’s red carpet appearance whether for celebrities or civilians.

“First Neuro Toxins (Botox and Dysport) that modulate wrinkles by relaxing the muscles underneath the skin. The best results are seen when a patient receives Botox every 4-6 months. Most popular areas to treat are the forehead, in between the brows, and the crow’s feet (around the eyes).
