Want immediate results? Nothing compares with the dramatic improvements from Botox injections, the most popular cosmetic medical procedure. Botox helps smooth out lines from frowning or squinting, and relaxes muscles in order to beautify or accentuate facial features.
More than one million people have been treated with the FDA-approved BOTOX® Cosmetic.
A single 10-minute treatment, consisting of a few tiny injections, creates within days a noticeable improvement in those persistent lines between the brows. The results can last up to four months, though the time can vary.
At Manhattan Dermatology, board-certified physicians administer all Botox® treatments.
We would be delighted to discuss your procedure with you in great detail. You’ll be amazed to see what Botox can do to rejuvenate your appearance!
How is BOTOX® administered?
BOTOX® is injected into the muscles being treated with a very fine needle.
Does the treatment hurt?
Patients have reported slight temporary discomfort from the procedure in the area of injection. The treatment is very quick and involves a minor sting for only a few seconds.
When does BOTOX® start to work?
The results of Botox treatment will start to appear within 24 to 48 hours. The maximal effect occurs within 2 to 7 days. Gradually, over 3 to 5 months, the muscles will regain their ability to contract.
How long does the effect last?
The benefits of Botox® usually last for up to 4 months, but results vary. The treatment can be repeated every 3-6 months according to the results you wish to achieve.
