Botox, Long Island NY

Botox® Cosmetic is one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedures for reducing or eliminating facial wrinkles. It is safe, quick, effective, and ideal for treating frown lines, horizontal forehead lines, worry lines around the mouth, lines on the sides of the nose, and crow’s feet.

Botox® is administered through a series of tiny injections, which then relaxes the facial muscles that create certain facial expressions. It is common to combine Botox with facial fillers such as Juvederm, Radiesse, or fat grafting but unlike Botox, facial fillers work by restoring volume to wrinkles or depressions.

Frequently Asked Questions About Botox

Are there different types of facial wrinkles?

Yes, there are two types – static and dynamic wrinkles. Static wrinkles are wrinkles that are visible when facial muscles are relaxed. By contrast, dynamic wrinkles are facial wrinkles that are only visible when facial muscles are animated.

How long will it take to start seeing results from my Botox?

On average, it can take anywhere between five to seven days before you see the final results.

How long will my Botox last?

Botox can last anywhere between three to six months (depending on the person). The location being treated can also be a variable in the duration of the results. However, Botox® Cosmetic results are only temporary, so routine injections are required to maintain results.

Is Botox painful?

There is very minimal discomfort with Botox and no downtime. Patients are able to return to work and normal routine immediately after treatment.
