Botox Injections in NYC

Dr. Leslie Gerstman performs Botox injections in New York – a cosmetic injectable treatment that can bring back your youthful glow and enhance your beauty by softening, reducing, and eliminating fine line and wrinkles.

What is Botox?

Counted among the three main types of non-surgical facial rejuvenation techniques in NYC, Botox is a diluted botulinum protein. It relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles, from the worry lines on your forehead, crow’s feet around your eyes, smile lines at the side of your lips, and angry lines between your brows. This injectable treatment is tested safe and effective in removing fine lines and wrinkles due to repeated facial expressions.

Fillers vs. Botox – What’s the Difference?

Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm, use injectable HA based gel to restore volume in the skin. Botox, on the other hand, works by blocking the nerve impulses that cause the muscle activity creating wrinkles. When it comes to upper face and forehead wrinkles, Botox is the preferred procedure because wrinkles in the brow and forehead are primarily caused by muscle movement. 

How Long Does Botox Last?

For most patients, a Botox injection will last for 3 to 6 months. The results vary depending on how strong the muscle is and how many units were used. To keep the wrinkles from reappearing, we recommend follow-up visits every 3 months. With regular use, the problem muscle areas may shrink, allowing the wrinkles they cause to fade away.

Note: After receiving dermal filler injections, you will be able to resume daily activities. Some patients experience swelling, bruising and other temporary side effects that typically last for the first 2-3 days. Dermal fillers produce desired effects for anywhere between 6 months to longer than 12 months, depending on the treatment method, so that skin can look and feel refreshed.
