How Does Botox Work?
Botox injections are the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure used to reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles through minimally invasive injections. These injections are made from botulinum toxin A, a therapeutic muscle-relaxing agent approved by the FDA for several different uses. Botulinum toxin, which is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, inhibits muscle contraction by inhibiting specific chemical signals from neurons. When injected into the skin, it can block the nerve muscles that are responsible for the repetitive actions that cause fine lines and wrinkles, smoothing them away for a younger and more refreshed appearance. Botox is commonly used to treat:
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
- Forehead wrinkles
- Brow wrinkles
- Frown lines
- Smile lines
Almost everyone is an excellent candidate for Botox treatments. Botox is advised for healthy adults who want to reduce fine lines or harsh vertical neck bands. Ideal candidates have realistic expectations in terms of outcomes.
Pregnant or nursing mothers should not use Botox. Botox injections are also not recommended for those with active skin problems and nerve abnormalities.
Your Botox Consultation
At your Botox consultation, be prepared to discuss your aesthetic goals, medical history, allergies, and any medical concerns with Dr. Glassman. The doctor will examine the regions of your face that you would like to target.
Dr. Glassman will go through the advantages and disadvantages of Botox therapy, as well as the preparation and aftercare protocols. Make a point to ask any questions you may have about the procedure.
The Botox Procedure
Botox injections are simple to administer and only take around 15 to 20 minutes. Anesthesia is not typically required. Dr. Glassman will use a tiny needle to inject Botox into specific muscles through the skin, causing only minimal discomfort. The number of injections necessary is determined by the size of the treated region and the desired results.
Botox is a non-surgical injectable treatment that does not require a lengthy recovery period. Some patients may choose to lay down for an hour following the treatment, but many are able to resume their normal activities right away. There may be some redness and mild swelling around the injection sites, but these issues should subside quickly.
After treatment, the appearance of your wrinkles begins to improve within 24 hours, with full results developing gradually over the next five days. Most patients achieve their desired results after just one injection, although additional treatment sessions may be required in the future. The results of Botox injections typically last up to four months, with some patients reporting results lasting up to a full year.
The Cost of Botox Injections
The cost of your Botox treatment in NYC will vary based on the areas of the face being treated and the amount of product needed to provide you with the results you are looking for. Dr. Glassman can answer any question you have about the cost of Botox and your payment options during your consultation.
