Botox® Treatments Westchester
What is Botox®?
Botox® is a very diluted form of the botulinum protein. It has been used successfully and without any long-term negative effects since the 1990s, and very few short term complications have been seen. Botox® has been proven to be safe and effective in removing the dynamic wrinkles that result from repeated facial expressions, but is not a permanent solution. Follow-up visits about three to six months apart are needed to keep the wrinkles from reappearing.
Which conditions can be treated by Botox®?
Botox® is very safe and successful at removing the wrinkles that appear on the face due to repetitive facial expressions. It is an excellent way to remove the unsightly horizontal lines that show up on foreheads, crows feet wrinkles from around the eyes, vertical wrinkles that can appear on an upper lip, and the scowl lines that often appear between the eyebrows at the top of the nose.
We provide complete Botox® injection treatments in our Westchester and Scarsdale dermatology offices.
Frequently Asked Questions about our Botox® treatments
How is Botox® Administered in your New York dermatology offices?
Botox® is delivered by injectionand does not require a hospital setting. It is virtually painless, and there is no recovery time.
How Does Botox® Work to Remove My Wrinkles?
A Botox® injection weakens, through inhibition, the muscles that cause the wrinkles, but does not normally interfere with facial expressions. Weakening the muscle that causes wrinkles creates a dramatic improvement in appearance that can be seen within two to seven days.
What Should I Expect During and After the Botox® Treatment?
There may be, at most, mild discomfort when our Westchester dermatologist administers the injections, and some slight bruising may appear in the few days after the treatment. This can be easily covered with makeup. It is possible to return to work immediately after your Botox® treatment in Scarsdale.
How Long Does Botox® Treatment Last?
The muscles that were weakened by a Botox® injection eventually regain their strength and the wrinkles may reappear. On average, Botox® treatment lasts for three months, but it may stretch for up to six months.
