Do you want to refresh your appearance and take years off your face? Our Glendale, NY, dermatologist, Dr. Ted Brezel, understands that many people want to look younger but don’t want to go through expensive and time-consuming procedures to do it. If this sounds like you then Botox may just be the perfect option for you.
What is Botox?
Chances are good that you’ve heard about Botox on TV or in magazines but how much do you actually know about this cosmetic procedure? Botox, when injected into the muscles of the face, interferes with the nerve signals being sent from the brain that tells the muscles to contract. Since the muscles aren’t able to contract, this smooths away certain wrinkles and lines.
What wrinkles and lines can Botox improve?
Take a moment to smile or squint in the mirror and you’ll quickly notice a host of lines and wrinkles appear across your face. Perhaps even once you stop making these facial expressions, these lines will still be visible. If these are the wrinkles you want to treat then Botox may be all you need to get the results you want.
Botox smooths away forehead wrinkles, those dreaded 11’s, and crow’s feet (lines around the eyes).
How is Botox administered?
Getting Botox is an extremely quick and easy procedure to undergo and has no recovery time. You’ll come in, our Glendale skin doctor will use a tiny needle to inject a small amount of the liquid into specific muscles of the face, and then you are good to go. It can take a few days to a week for the results to appear, and in most cases, you can expect to maintain your new appearance for approximately three to four months.
