BOTOX® Cosmetic

Botox | BronxWhen you smile, laugh, frown, or look puzzled, you contract the muscles of your face. Over time, these contractions produce permanent furrows and deep wrinkles in the skin, especially around the eyes and mouth, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead. These lines can make you look older, sad, angry or tired. BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments can not only prevent you from deepening these lines during natural facial movements, they can also erase these marks of aging, leaving you looking younger and refreshed.

What can BOTOX® treatments do for me?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the country and one of our most requested services. Quick, safe and effective, BOTOX® reduces or eliminates facial lines and wrinkles for up to six months with no downtime or surgery and little to no discomfort. Through a series of tiny injections, BOTOX® gives you a rejuvenated look by smoothing crow's feet beneath the eyes, frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal lines across the forehead, worry lines around the mouth, and lines on the neck.

The Importance of Choosing a Qualified Physician

Even though BOTOX® is not a surgical procedure, it is very important to choose a highly experienced and qualified physician when deciding to undergo BOTOX® treatments. Doctors who are less familiar with the technique could leave you looking "frozen" or perpetually surprised. Our doctors are intimately familiar with BOTOX® Cosmetic, having successfully treated hundreds of patients at our office. Not only that, we also take the time to talk with each candidate before beginning the injections to find out what he or she wants to achieve and to determine how best to correct the problem area(s) so patients can be happy again with their smoother, younger-looking faces.

How does BOTOX® work?

BOTOX® is made from a highly purified protein that is very safe when administered by a trained physician. The medication relaxes the muscles in the face that cause wrinkles. In this way, BOTOX® smoothes the lines in the skin that make you look tired or angry.

Can BOTOX® be used for conditions besides wrinkles?

Yes. BOTOX® may also be useful for migraine headaches, excessive sweating, and eye and neck muscle spasms. Talk to us about whether BOTOX® can help you.

Restylane® and Perlane®

Restylane | BronxThe world's most popular and most studied cosmetic dermal fillers, Restylane® and its new companion Perlane® offer exceptional treatments for moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, especially the nasolabial folds that stretch from the nose to the corners of the mouth. Restylane and Perlane replenish lost volume in the skin and restore youthful contours to the face by lifting and supporting tissues non-surgically. The outcome is a younger, smoother look with fewer lines and wrinkles. Results are immediate and long-lasting.

What are Restylane and Perlane made of?

Restylane and Perlane are clear, synthetic gels made with purified hyaluronic acid, a natural sugar that is found throughout your body. Hyaluronic acid works with collagen to support the skin and keep it smooth and supple. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane and Perlane has been modified so it lasts longer. It forms strong bonds with water molecules in the skin, prolonging its rejuvenating effects for up to six months or more.

What areas can be treated with Restylane and Perlane?

Restylane and Perlane are FDA-approved for the treatment of moderate to severe folds and wrinkles on the face. They are extremely effective in treating the nasolabial folds, the lines that stretch from the the nose to the sides of the mouth.

What is the difference between Restylane and Perlane?

The gel particles in Perlane are larger than those in Restylane, making Perlane ideal for treating deeper folds in the skin.

Do I need a skin test?

Restylane and Perlane contain no animal products, unlike many of the substances that are found in other injectable cosmetic fillers. There is no need for pre-treatment skin tests.

How soon will I see results?

You will see results almost instantly.

Are there any side effects?

Restylane and Perlane are very safe products. The most common side effects of treatment are swelling, redness, pain, bruising and tenderness in and around the injection areas. These typically fade within a week.

How long do the effects of a Restylane or Perlane treatment last?

In general, the effects of Restylane treatments last six months, and the effects of Perlane treatments last at least six months. Results very by individual and depend on many factors, such as the patient's lifestyle, age, structure of the skin, the degree of perfection demanded and the practitioner's injection technique.

Touch-up and follow-up treatments will make the improvements of Restylane and Perlane last longer. Most patients choose to have a touch-up treatment within six months to a year of the original injection(s).

What should I do after my Restylane or Perlane treatment?

During the first 48 hours after your treatment, do not massage or rub the treated area. Do not expose the treated area to intense heat or cold for the first few days after the treatment to avoid swelling. Once Restylane and Perlane have integrated into the body, they will adjust to your normal body temperature.

Juvéderm™

Juvederm | BronxJuvéderm™ is an injectable gel that gently reverses many signs of aging in the face, including fine lines and wrinkles, crow's feet, thinning lips and loosening skin. It can also "plump up" the lips, sculpt the cheeks, and restore a youthful oval shape to the face. It is made with hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body that works with collagen and elastin to give volume and support to the skin. Because it is non-animal-based and highly biocompatible, no pre-treatment testing is needed. Juvéderm™ comes in three formulas optimized for the depth of the area being treated. Results last about 6-9 months and can be made to last even longer with a simple follow-up treatment a few weeks after the initial injection.
