Botox® Cosmetic by Dr. Michael Wolfeld New York
Whenever we frown, we gather tissue between our eyebrows into a fold. For many of us, this causes a chronic furrow producing a frustrated and angry look on our face. This can be alienating to others, and upsetting to ourselves. Now, you can make these frown lines disappear without surgery and without scars, by a simple treatment of Botox® . Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Wolfeld uses Botox® Cosmetic to eliminate the frown lines between the brows, flatten deep forehead wrinkles, and soften the ‘crow’s feet’ wrinkles next to the eyes. It blocks nerve transmission to the muscles that cause wrinkles of the face. After treatment, the muscles relax, and the overlying skin becomes smooth and unwrinkled.
Dr. Wolfeld uses a few tiny microinjections to deliver the Botox® treatments, so discomfort is minimal. The treatment is usually done in about 10 minutes, and there is no downtime. Within a few days, patients see a marked improvement that can last up to 4 months. With so many advantages, it is easy to see why patient satisfaction is so high with these treatments in our office. Contrary to what you may have heard, Botox® does not produce an unnatural appearance with a ‘frozen’ look. An experienced injector knows exactly how to produce natural results that enhance the appearance.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why Does Skin Age?
Aging skin and wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It is not just about cellular changes, collagen depletion, hormone loss, or damage caused by free radicals. The 11s – those vertical lines that appear between your brows – result from muscle contractions. When you concentrate, squint, or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. After years of frequent contraction, those wrinkles can linger even after the muscles are at rest.
How does BOTOX® Cosmetic work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of the “11s,” the moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines). It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows.
When will I see results from a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment?
Within days, you may see a marked improvement in the moderate-to-severe frown lines between your brows. Lines continue to improve for up to 30 days, and results can last for up to 4 months.
Is treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic painful?
Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes. Most patients are in and out of the office without downtime following BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment.
Will I still be able to make facial expressions?
Although the results are visible, a treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you’ve “had work done.” The muscle activity that causes frown lines between the brows is temporarily reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.
