Most people have heard of Botox® and know it is a popular cosmetic treatment. Millions of Botox® treatments are given each year to help with various cosmetic and medical issues. At City Facial Plastics, we offer a variety of cosmetic procedures, including Botox® injections. If you are looking for expert use of this popular injectable cosmetic, come see us for your Botox® treatments at our Upper East Side clinic.
The most common reason Botox® treatment is requested is for lines and wrinkles. The skin loses elasticity with age, etching in lines and wrinkles from years of facial muscle movement. Botox® works to diminish these lines, smoothing away the signs of aging on the face.
How Does Botox® Work?
Botulinum toxin (Botox®) injection therapy is a nonsurgical procedure commonly used to restore a youthful appearance to skin. Botox® can smooth out frown lines and crow’s feet at the corner of the eyes, eliminate forehead creases and raise the corners of the mouth. Botox® works by relaxing overactive muscles that cause lines to form.
Botox® is generally safe for all skin types, even sensitive skin, and requires very little recovery time. This treatment is administered with tiny injections and no anesthesia is required. It can be performed during an office visit with minimal discomfort. Your normal activities can be continued with ease. Line and crease smoothing will be visible within days and may continue to improve for as long as a week or two. Results vary, but typically last between three to four months.
Botox® treatments are very effective for improving your appearance, but the best results are obtained when administered by a facial cosmetic expert.
