A Closer Look at BOTOX® Cosmetic
Over the years, our skin inevitably loses elasticity. The production of collagen, a key ingredient for supple skin, diminishes as we age. Skin texture changes, and fine lines and wrinkles deepen, becoming more apparent. The section around the eyes and between the eyebrows typically shows fine lines and wrinkles first and most noticeably,
BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injectable comprised of a highly diluted form of botulinum toxin type A. It is administered into the eye area to temporarily paralyze the underlying muscles. By halting muscle contractions, the overlying skin remains smooth with reduced wrinkles and creasing.
BOTOX® has been safely and effectively used for more than 20 years to address the vertical frown lines between the eyes, and crow’s feet that radiate from the sides of the eyes. This popular cosmetic treatment can serve as a standalone procedure, or applied in combination with other non-invasive therapies or cosmetic facial surgeries for more dramatic results.
Candidacy for BOTOX® Cosmetic
Patients at least 18 years of age who are looking for an affordable and minimally invasive way to achieve a refreshed look are often suitable BOTOX® candidates. Before administering treatment, Dr. Lerman will ensure that you are in good overall health without signs of a neuromuscular disorder that would preclude you from treatment. Women who are pregnant or nursing must wait to undergo BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment until after they have given birth and are done breastfeeding.
Your BOTOX® Procedure
During your BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment session, you may be offered a topical numbing cream for your comfort. BOTOX® Cosmetic will then be injected through a very thin needle into the superficial layers of the muscle around the eyes and forehead at predetermined sites. Treatment sessions take about 15 minutes and have no downtime, allowing patients to easily fit a BOTOX® treatment into their busy schedule. Results generally last about six months. After this time, patients will need to return for another session in order to maintain desired effects.
Choosing the Right Provider
To achieve natural-looking results, it is important to choose a BOTOX® provider with plenty of experience administering precise treatments. As a board certified plastic surgeon with numerous distinctions, Dr. Oren Lerman has earned a reputation in the New York area for delivering excellent results for all treatment types he offers, including injectables, cosmetic, and reconstructive surgeries.
