what is BOTOX?
Are you bothered by wrinkles on your forehead and areas around your eyes? Known as dynamic wrinkles, these skin concerns appear as a result of repetitive facial expressions, such as frowning, squinting, and smiling. As we age, these lines become more pronounced and can make us appear fatigued. With BOTOX, we have the ability to briefly limit the development of moderate to severe creases and frown lines. BOTOX is a filtered type A strain of botulinum toxin. It functions to temporarily disengage the muscles that create wrinkles, providing smoother contours. At Boston Direct Health, Steven Zivich, M.D. is thrilled to offer BOTOX injections as a nonsurgical aesthetic solution to help patients attain a youthful profile.

"Dr. Zivich has been my family’s primary care physician for many years and I can’t speak highly enough about how fantastic and essential his services have been for us, especially during these crazy COVID times. From his concierge medicine business model, to available and hassle free COVID testing, laser hair removal, skin tightening, Botox and fillers, he is my one stop shop for all things medical. I greatly appreciate everything that Dr. Zivich and his team has done for me and my family throughout the years and I look forward to continuing our relationship with them. Thank you so much, Boston Direct Health!"- L.L. / Google / Jan 19, 2021
"I have been a patient of Dr. Steve Zivich prior to him starting Boston Direct Health. Once I learned that he was taking health and wellness to the next level I knew that this was perfect for me. Being a Essential Medical Worker this last year has highlighted the importance of having access to my doctor and one that knows me, my interests, and my desire to keep improving as I find myself in my mid to late 50's. I appreciate his new offices on Boylston St which enhances the great care that he already offers. His staff are friendly and welcoming as well. I currently am using the services of BDH for weekly COVID19 testing, Rapid testing when I return from traveling, and even had some minor cosmetic procedures on my face to remove life long moles and the results were great! If you're looking for BOTOX, Dr. Zivich has you covered there as well. BDH is the place for me to not just to take care of the medical needs that come up in life, but a solid practice with a good referral base and offers the care that allows me to thrive as I get older. If you're looking for solid care that is personalized, offers flexibility in having access to your Care Team and want to treated as a person and not just a diagnosis or an appointment to be checked off...then give them a try! Thanks again Dr. Zivich and Boston Direct Health."- C.R. / Google / Jan 19, 2021
"Attentive and Skilled with Competitive Pricing. - Dr. Zivich is an extremely attentive and skilled physician offering competitive pricing. Having received Botox injections from him, I can attest that he is meticulous with procedures. Unlike most practices, he carefully maps out and marks locations prior to injecting. This achieves symmetrical and natural results. He also offered a complementary reusable ice pack for me to use in the office and to take with me in order to reduced any redness and swelling. These thoughtful touches set him apart from other practices."- M. / RealSelf / Apr 24, 2020
"BEST MD in Boston!! - Steve is an amazing doctor! His knowledge of health, wellness, nutrition and physical fitness is like no other MD I have ever experienced. Past experiences with other doctors, as a personal trainer, I find myself often educating them. With Steve, he knows all. Additionally, his work with Botox and fillers is amazing! He makes the process easy and pain free. I carry my stress in my forehead, and for years had deep forehead creases and strong brow muscles. His expertise not only greatly helped relax my forehead it also relieved me of my occasional migraine headaches. I am also fortunate that he offers fillers as treatments well. With his work, I've added back 10 years aesthetically to my face.Finally his pricing is affordable. My last aesthetician was way over-charging me compared to what Steve charges, and my results have lasted far longer. Being a very active person, I often metabolize treatments within 3 to 4 months. I've passed 5 months and have yet to "break through" my Botox and my fillers have also remained, again, wiping at least 10 years off my face. I highly recommend Steve to my clients and friends for their aesthetic and medical needs."- J. / RealSelf / Apr 23, 2020

I highly recommend him for all services including fillers and laser hair removal!"- L. / RealSelf / Apr 23, 2020
How Does BOTOX Work?
During your initial consult at Boston Direct Health, Dr. Zivich will perform an evaluation to decide which areas should receive treatment. Given that BOTOX is a quick, in-office service, your injections will likely be carried out at the same time as your consultation. The solution will be injected into the problem areas using a small syringe. Most patients report only minor discomfort, like a pinching or pinprick sensation. After your session, you can leave our facility and go about your usual day.
You may experience temporary bruising, redness, and swelling in the treatment areas. Within 48 – 72 hours, you'll likely begin to notice smoother contours. BOTOX injections can provide up to four months of youthful, natural-looking results. Dr. Zivich will let you know how frequently you should receive treatments as part of a personalized plan to help you reach your desired results.
