Botox® Cosmetic, or Botulinum toxin, is one of the most popular and most requested cosmetic procedures in New York. This is a safe, effective, quick treatment for reducing or eliminating facial lines. There is no downtime, little to no discomfort, and results last up to six months. Botox® is ideal for treating crow’s feet, frown lines, horizontal forehead lines, worry lines around the mouth, lines on either side of the nose, and lines or bands on the neck for a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance. Botox® may also be used to treat migraine headaches, excessive sweating, and muscle spasms of the eyes and neck.
Unlike injectable fillers which work by restoring volume to wrinkles or depressions, Botox works by relaxing the muscles responsible for certain expressions. Expressions like smiling, laughing, frowning and even looking puzzled cause the muscles of the face to contract. Over time, the repeat skin creases that occur as the muscles contract can turn to permanent wrinkles and furrows in the skin. Botox® works by erasing these marks of aging while also preventing future lines from occurring.
How long does it take to see Botox results?
The results of Botox can be seen anytime between 12 hours after injection to almost 7 days.
Is it possible to get Botox treatment as a preventative measure, or do you have to wait until you actually have wrinkles before receiving treatment?
Botox can absolutely be used as a preventative measure for wrinkles. If there are deep wrinkles upon animation (meaning, whenever you make different facial expressions), then it’s best to treat them prophylactically with Botox before they become visible at rest.
