Botox is a type of botulinum toxin (neurotoxin) injection that is designed to help address fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet on the upper face. While the average Botox patient was once concerned with the fine lines they saw in the mirror, Botox injections are becoming more and more popular with younger patients as well who are looking to take preventive measures before these fine lines appear. At Blaine Plastic Surgery, we offer Botox injections along with many other cosmetic injections at our clinics in Long Island, Staten Island and Midtown Manhattan.
Botox Cosmetic Procedures
Botox injections work with the goal of reducing muscle contraction by temporarily blocking nerve impulses to the muscles targeted. In preventing this strong muscular pull, you are ultimately reducing the severity of existing wrinkles and/or preventing their appearance altogether. This can also help with other aesthetic changes like a non-surgical brow lift or masseter reduction for face slimming. You can learn more about Botox for other cosmetic treatments below:
The results of Botox injections, which take only minutes to perform, are typically seen within 3-5 days of your injection and last an average of 3-4 months. Botox for line and wrinkle treatment is used for frown lines on the brow, including the “11” lines between the eyebrows and horizontal lines on the forehead. Botox can also treat other lines or wrinkles that are caused by muscle contraction, including crow’s feet at the corner of the eyes.
