Botulinum Toxins (Botox)
Botulinum toxin is an injectable treatment that reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles associated with expressions, such as frown lines in the forehead, furrows between the eyebrows, crow's feet around the eyes, and neck creasing. Botulinum toxin injections can also treat excessive sweating in the underarms and teeth clenching.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does it work?
The clinical effect first appears within 3-7 days after treatment, but it may take as long as 7-14 days to attain the full effect from the injections. Results usually last an average of 3-6 months.
When will I see results?
Many facial wrinkles result from nerves telling muscles to remain contracted. When injected directly into the muscle, Botox blocks these signals from the nerves, allowing the muscles to relax and smoothing the wrinkles that they cause.
Is there a recovery period?
After treatment, temporary swelling, bruising, redness, or soreness in the treatment area can be experienced.
Who performs the treatment?
Dr. Tina Alster and Dr. Neelam Khan (Board-Certified Dermatologists).
