What exactly is BOTOX Cosmetic?

BOTOX Cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. It is a non-surgical, 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. Our NYC BOTOX Cosmetic is injected directly into the muscle 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 in the treatment of excess sweating of the palms, soles, and armpits.


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.

What will happen to the frown lines if I choose not to continue treatments?

If you do not continue your NYC BOTOX treatments, the moderate to severe frown lines between your brows will gradually look as they did before treatment.

During this time, the two of you will reach an agreement regarding what treatment is necessary to get the best results for you. Our office also accepts CareCredit® and Alphaeon™ Credit to help you get treatment on an immediate basis. Please speak with our concierge for more information.
