Give Yourself the Gift of Botox

Imagine if you could give yourself the gift of a younger, more vibrant looking face. Well, you can. If you’ve ever considered Botox injections, there’s no better time than the present. Learn about how Botox can help you feel more confident at all those holiday parties and in your family pictures this year.

What is Botox?

Botulinum toxin, or Botox, is made from Clostridium botulinum bacteria. That may sound a little worrying but the injection of this neurotoxin is an extremely safe and effective method to reduce lines and wrinkles and rejuvenate the aging face. When a small amount of Botox is injected into the treatment area, it blocks nerve signals that tell your muscles to contract. This interaction provides the desired result of smoothing or eliminating wrinkles on the skin because the facial muscles are temporarily being weakened. Getting a Botox injection takes just a few minutes and can conveniently be done in our Woodbury office.

Why is Botox so great?

Botox is temporary and only lasts 3-6 months. Injections can be done quickly, require no recovery time, and give you excellent results in a noninvasive procedure.

How long will it take to see results?

It takes about 3 to 4 days to notice the effects of Botox and can take up to a week for its full effects. Your results will lay between 3 to 4 months but could last as long as 6 months. Over time you’ll notice your wrinkles returning and then you can schedule another appointment with us.

Uses For Botox Cosmetic

Botox or botulinum toxin is an FDA-approved injectable for treating frown lines in adults younger than 65. Botox injections are also commonly used to minimize other fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck, such as crow’s feet, brow furrow, and forehead lines. Botox has also been approved by the FDA to treat problems such as chronic migraine headaches, eye muscle disorders, excessive sweating, and muscle stiffness.
