Botox Injection in Huntington and Staten Island

Tired of getting more and more wrinkles every year? Certain facial expressions such as smiling, frowning and squinting can cause unwanted wrinkles and premature age lines. If you are looking for a noninvasive surgery to rejuvenate your skin and give your face a fresh look, Botox is the perfect solution. With Botox, you can get rid of these creases, and start feeling comfortable in your own skin.

Botox is used for more than just treating superficial creases. In fact, if applied early enough, it can prevent lines from appearing at all. Botox can also be used to treat a multitude of medical conditions, some of the most common being chronic migraines, muscle spasms, eye twitching, severe underarm sweating, and even overactive bladders.

The results of Botox generally last about four months, but vary with each patient.

Procedure:
Small, diluted amounts of Botox (boltulinum toxin) are injected into targeted muscles with a fine needle. Once injected, Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles, preventing the injected muscle from contracting, and therefore causing the wrinkles on your face to soften and iron out. It is important to note that the toxin requires about 5-7 days to take full effect, so results may not be visible until then.

Precautions:
It is best to avoid consuming alcohol for at least a week prior to treatment. You should also refrain from taking any anti-inflammatory medications two weeks prior to your appointment in order to reduce bruising.

You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope, as old as your despair.
