Signs of facial aging, such as frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles, can be frustrating. You may notice that you look older than you feel on the inside. While facelift plastic surgery is the cosmetic surgery of choice for treating these aesthetic issues, it is an expensive procedure with a recovery downtime. New York plastic surgeon Dr. Tomer Avraham offers BOTOX® injections as a non-surgical facial rejuvenation alternative for patients with mild aesthetic issues.

BOTOX® is a safe and effective, FDA-approved treatment that relaxes specific facial muscles to smooth wrinkles and temporarily reduces their appearance. Dr. Avraham’s patients who receive this minimally invasive cosmetic treatment enjoy a refreshed and youthful look without a recovery downtime.

Botox and other neuromodulation injections (e.g., Dysport®, Xeomin®, and Jeuveau®) have become immensely popular due to their manageable cost, safety, and effectiveness. In 2022, more than 8.7 million of these treatments were administered in the U.S., according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Based on ratings at Real Patient Ratings, 95.6% of patients who had BOTOX were happy with the outcome of their treatment.

What You Need to Know

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a minimally invasive treatment that temporarily smooths moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines in adults. This quick procedure takes 15 – 30 minutes, and the results last 3 – 4 months. When performed by a qualified New York plastic surgeon or injection specialist, this is an excellent option with minimal downtime and quickly visible results.

What is BOTOX Made of

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein derived from a natural substance. While this may sound surprising, it’s important to remember that many medications come from natural sources. BOTOX® Cosmetic has undergone rigorous testing and is FDA-approved for cosmetic use. In the hands of a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Avraham, it offers a safe and effective way to achieve a refreshed appearance.

Clinical Trials for BOTOX Injections

Throughout its development, BOTOX® has undergone extensive testing to confirm it delivers the desired results with a high safety profile. This commitment to research continues, with ongoing studies exploring new potential applications for the product.

How Does BOTOX Work

BOTOX® Cosmetic works by targeting the underlying muscles that contribute to wrinkles. When injected in tiny amounts, it temporarily relaxes these muscles to smooth out the appearance of lines and wrinkles. This allows you to achieve a more relaxed and youthful look. The effects are temporary, typically lasting 3-4 months. Repeat treatments are required to maintain the results.

Who is a Candidate for BOTOX Injections

You may be a candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic if you:

  • Are at least 18 years old.
  • Are in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the treatment’s capabilities.
  • Have moderate to severe wrinkles caused by muscle movement, such as frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines.
  • Are not pregnant or nursing.
  • Do not have a history of neuromuscular diseases such as myasthenia gravis or multiple sclerosis.
