Women throughout Marina Del Rey, Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, Venice, Westchester, El Segundo, Playa Vista, Culver City and the greater South Bay area, seek out BOTOX treatment from Dr. Jamie Lipeles and Dr. Hope Vermaire at Marina OB/GYN, located in Marina Del Rey and Hawthorne, California. Dr. Lipeles and Dr. Vermaires' BOTOX procedures offer attractive, yet natural-looking results.
Botox®, made from a purified derivative of the bacteria clostridium botulinum, is injected under the skin on the face to erase lines around the eyes, on the forehead and between the eyebrows. Unlike fillers that plump up wrinkles, BOTOX works by temporarily paralyzing muscle movement, preventing patients from being able to make crow’s feet and frown lines. In preventing facial lines from being made, BOTOX can also prevent these lines from worsening.
BOTOX results typically appear within 24 to 48 hours following the injections and generally last up to four months. At that point, facial lines gradually return to their pre-treatment appearance, or treatment can be repeated ahead of time.
BOTOX is one of the all-time, most extensively studied esthetic treatments provided by physicians. It has been reviewed in more than 400 medical journal articles and has been used in the United State for over 15 years.
BOTOX injections take only minutes to perform and require no downtime. And because the needles used to administer BOTOX are so thin, patients generally describe the sensation as feeling like a tolerable pinch. However, anyone who is especially sensitive or fears needles can have a topical numbing cream applied 30 minutes before their treatment.
When women and men have visible ripples, shiny foreheads or those frozen faces we’ve all seen, it’s not because of BOTOX. It’s because of the way and amount that of BOTOX that was injected. BOTOX is a technique-sensitive treatment that should only be performed by an experienced physician. Dr. Lipeles has treated hundreds of women, who are satisfied – and can still show that and all expressions on their faces.

I am actually pregnant again (yay!) and I will be going back to this office throughout my pregnancy. They're amazing, and I had a great experience.
He delivered my baby and both baby and I are healthy. I was up and walking right after the delivery and healed perfectly so I couldn't be happier!
He performed the surgery with a robot so recovery was not bad. His staff was extremely helpful and pleasant.
The staff are amazing, very friendly and helpful. I'm definitely going to keep coming here for check ups and birth control because I love it that much. I would recommend
Nervous about the delivery all the anxiety disappeared the second the doc walked into the room. My hubby loved visiting as much as I did!
Dr. Lipeles was gentle and kind (First Male ObGyn experience for me). He was hilarious with bedside manner and actually had me laughing throughout the entire experience.
Dr. Lipeles is so caring and went above and beyond my expectations for a family centered birth. His office is beautifully remodeled and spotlessly clean.
Amazing!! Dr. Lipeles is the best!! He and all the doctors, nurses and office staff are wonderful. Thanks Doc for all your help!
