This is How You Can Look Younger With Botox in Scarsdale

Published on January 24, 2015

For patients wanting to look younger, Botox is the dream treatment. For most people, the question is not if but when they will get their first injections. When they do make an appointment the dermatologist will inject onabotulinumtoxinA in various sites, depending on what part of the face and neck are being treated.

How do Scarsdale Botox treatments work?

Botox works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that contract and cause facial wrinkles. Dermatologists in such places as Manhattan and Scarsdale will inject Botox directly into the facial muscles under the affected areas. One primary injection site is the forehead, where many people develop wrinkles early. Another prime spot is around the mouth where laugh lines make their appearance.

Some patients suffer from the crease between the eyes, which makes them look continually angry or anxious. Botox can drastically improve that area as well. Some doctors will also use the drug to help soften smoker’s lines around the mouth.

How sweat is treated with Botox

Dermatologists use Botox under the arms of patients who sweat profusely and on the necks of patients with cervical dystonia, a condition that causes painful muscle spasms that twist the neck and head. Migraines are another condition that doctors treat with multiple injections of Botox on both the right and left sides of the head.

Does Botox have any side effects I should know about?

These Botox treatments have minimal side effects, although on rare occasions, the physician may “miss” the targeted muscle by a bit. On these occasions, the drug might migrate beyond the intended area and cause a droopy eye lid or numbness around the mouth.

Botox is safe, effective, and available to residents in Westchester County and New York City. The injections are quite affordable, relatively painless, and extremely effective.
