Years of squinting and frowning can leave behind wrinkles and lines that age you. At The Center for Dermatology Cosmetic & Laser Surgery, David Bank, MD, and the skilled dermatologists customize Botox® therapy plans to minimize facial lines and creases. This quick, in-office treatment can restore your youthful appearance and provide long-lasting results. To find out if Botox is right for you, call the office in Mount Kisco, New York.
Botox is an FDA-approved injectable treatment for crow’s feet around your eyes and creases across your brow and in between your eyebrows. These common skin flaws develop from repeated contractions of your facial muscles when you smile, frown, and squint.
Made from a purified form of the botulinum toxin, Botox temporarily relaxes these facial muscles. As muscles relax, wrinkles and lines smooth out, giving you a younger, fresher-looking appearance.
Botox is a minimally invasive treatment option for anyone who is unhappy with moderate to severe facial wrinkles but isn’t ready for surgery.
Dr. Bank and the providers at The Center for Dermatology Cosmetic & Laser Surgery can evaluate your skin and the severity of your wrinkles to determine if Botox therapy is right for you. They can recommend Botox to treat:
The providers customize a treatment plan to your specific needs during your initial consultation. They charge by the area of your body, not by the unit of Botox they use. This ensures you get the right amount of the injectable to achieve your desired results.
You may also be a candidate for other neurotoxin therapies like Jeuveau® and Dysport®. They work like Botox in the treatment of wrinkles and facial creases.
During your Botox appointment, your provider thoroughly cleanses your skin before injecting targeted areas of your face ensuring the accuracy of your injection. They administer precise amounts of Botox into the muscle, which may feel like a quick pinch.
After your injections are complete, you may need to hold a cold compress to your face to prevent swelling. You won’t need any downtime to recover if you’re just receiving Botox during your treatment.
The physicians at The Center for Dermatology Cosmetic & Laser Surgery may also use Botox in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures, such as laser resurfacing or dermal filler injections.
You can expect to notice the results of Botox injections within 24-72 hours. However, it can take up to 14 days before you can see the maximum benefit of your treatment. The providers can help you schedule maintenance injections of Botox, so you can retain your results in the long term.
