options for fine facial lines and wrinkles for patients who don’t want to have a face lift. Repetitive muscle movement causes smile lines, forehead lines, as well as fine lines around the eyes and mouth. Botox temporarily relaxes the contractions of the underlying facial muscles, leaving the patient with a smoother canvas. The quick and simple injections can be performed during your lunch break at our accredited Westchester location. Side effects are rare and the youthful result for most patients lasts four months.
Botox injections can also be used to control excessive underarm and hand sweating for up to six months.
BOTOX is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the brows in people 18 to 65 years of age for a short period of time (temporary).
BOTOX is administered by a healthcare professional as a simple, nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles between the brows. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows.
Aging skin and wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes, collagen depletion, hormone loss, or damage caused by free radicals. The 11s – those vertical lines that appear between your brows – result from muscle contractions. When you concentrate, squint, or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. After years of frequent contraction, those wrinkles can linger even after the muscles are at rest.
BOTOX works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes the persistent lines to form between the brows.
Within days, you may see a marked improvement in the moderate-to-severe frown lines between your brows. Lines continue to improve for up to 30 days, and results can last for up to 4 months. Individual results may vary.
