Botox in New York and New Jersey
Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of New York and New Jersey offer Botox® treatments to the residents of New York and New Jersey.
What exactly is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. It is a nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily reduce moderate to severe frown lines in the forehead, wrinkle lines around the eyes, and furrow lines around the mouth and the chin area. During treatment, very low doses of BOTOX® Cosmetic are administered via a few tiny injections directly into the muscles that cause those stubborn lines. The treatment is usually done within minutes, and no recovery time is needed. Within days, you may see an improvement that can last up to 4 months.
Moderate to severe frown and wrinkle lines form over time as the result of muscle activity. BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected directly into the muscles groups producing these lines. It works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscles; this reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those persistent lines to form.
What areas can be treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic?
Most commonly BOTOX® Cosmetic is used around the eyes (crow’s feet) and on the forehead (frown lines) to reduce dynamic lines and furrows. It can also be used to treat prominent neck bands or cords. We have also seen success after the treatment of upper lips, marionette lines at the corners of the mouth and chin rippling. BOTOX® Medical injections are also highly successful for the treatment of excess sweating of the palms, soles, and armpits.
When will I see results from a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment?
Within days, you may see a marked improvement. Lines continue to improve for up to a month and results can last for up to 4 months.
How long does BOTOX® Cosmetic last?
Results from treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic can last for up to 4 months. If you discontinue treatment, your frown lines and wrinkles gradually will look as they did before treatment.
Who should administer BOTOX® Cosmetic?
Any authorized healthcare professional can administer BOTOX® Cosmetic, but dermatologists or other physicians specializing in cosmetic procedures are generally more experienced. Dr. Goldberg and his staff have more than 10 years’ experience in administering BOTOX® Cosmetic, and he and his staff would be happy to discuss with you whether BOTOX® Cosmetic is right for you.
Is treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic painful?
Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. Most describe the injection sensation as feeling like a bug bite. The treatment is performed literally in a matter of minutes. No specific care is needed after the treatment.
Will my facial expressions continue to look natural?
Although the results are visible, a treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you “had work done.” The muscle activity that causes frown lines between the brows is simply reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.
What will happen to the frown lines if I choose not to continue treatments?
If you do not continue treatments, the moderate to severe frown lines between your brows will gradually look as they did before treatment.
