Botox® Cosmetic in New York
Botox® Cosmetic injections provide a non-surgical way of reversing some of the visible signs of aging. Crow's feet, laugh lines, and frown lines are caused by the repetitive contraction of underlying facial muscles. Dynamic lines occur with every smile, laugh, or frown. These can lead to wrinkles that are present when you are not expressing emotion. Botox® Cosmetic works by blocking the nerve impulses to the wrinkle producing muscles so they do not contract. The overlying skin will be smooth and unwrinkled. The untreated muscles will allow for normal facial expression to remain unaffected.
The treatment is simple with minimal discomfort, requires only a few minutes, and you can immediately resume normal activities. Very precise injections are made into the areas selected for treatment. The results will be apparent in a few days with continued smoothing of the skin occurring for a few weeks after the first treatment. Side effects are extremely rare.
BOTOX® is extremely safe and has over 15 years of success in treating a variety of medical conditions such as chronic migraines. Researchers are looking into the possibility of Botox as a treatment for TMJ. You will still be able to laugh, smile, or frown, but without the wrinkles. The duration of effect is between four and six months, and long-term maintenance of smooth skin can be achieved by repeated treatments.
