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
"Truly positive experience at BDH. Easy to find. Space is so welcoming. Staff extremely kind and professional. At 57 years old - I have the common aging deep "11" forehead lines. I felt they made me appear angry when I wasn't at all. I had tried multiple topical products and treatments for years. I went to BDH for a consult for treating those deep forehead/frown lines with Botox. Amanda Digitale RN, BSN was knowledgeable, informative and completely reassuring. We made a plan and I was treated right then and there with the first of the recommended sessions. It was mildly uncomfortable (but- hey it is an injection right?). Total injection time was only a few minutes. I tolerated the treatment with only a mild, dull headache for a few days- which I had been made aware was a potential to occur. After 5 days I really have begun to see RESULTS! I have my follow-up planned and am sooooooooo looking forward to continuing to brighten my face by softening / losing my "11". I feel I have a talented clinician who is truly tuned in to my goal and dedicated to helping me reach it. GO See Amanda at BDH - I promise you will be glad you did!!!"- J.M. / Google / Mar 20, 2021
"I don’t have a single negative thing to say about Dr. Zivich and his staff at BDH! Every visit has exceeded expectations in regards to friendliness, efficiency, and addressing the reason for my visit. Finding a PCP who genuinely cares about your health and makes you feel like you are more than just a number/appointment is HARD, and I couldn’t recommend BDH enough for their incredible staff and services. I have gone in for: rapid Covid testing, bloodwork, medication changes, physical ailments, and supplementation help. My boyfriend won some free Botox and spoke very highly of the appointment, which was scheduled promptly. That’s another thing- scheduling is so easy. You don’t have to wait weeks for your appointment which happens a lot with PCPs through MassGen/Brigham and other surrounding public healthcare providers. He is also now offering DEXA scans at a separate location, which is a valuable tool for weight loss patients and fitness enthusiasts, and DEXAs available in the New England area are few and far between. Thank you for everything you’ve done, Dr. Steve!"- C.F. / Google / Apr 05, 2021
"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 / Jun 19, 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.
