The development of fines and wrinkles can negatively affect the overall appearance of the face. Over time, these conditions often worsen and form deep creases and folds. BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injectable solution made of botulinum toxin type A, and it effectively improves signs of aging to restore a more youthful and attractive facial appearance. BOTOX® is one of the most desired cosmetic treatments in the world, and Dr. Steven Pearlman has been treating patients with BOTOX® for over 15 years. He regularly performs this procedure for men and women of all ages at his New York practice. Dr. Pearlman is also a recognized expert in BOTOX® treatments and a national trainer of other physicians in this procedure.
Additionally, Dr. Pearlman offers FDA-approved Dysport®, which is almost identical to BOTOX® and is liked by many patients. Dysport® has been available almost as long as BOTOX®, and some patients have found that the results last even longer.
BOTOX® is an FDA-approved injectable that works to temporarily prevent the movement of facial muscles, resulting in smoother skin and a more youthful appearance.
A. Candidates for BOTOX® injections have no pre-existing medical conditions and are realistic about the results of their treatment. Potential patients should be non-smokers and refrain from taking anti-inflammatory drugs (aspirin, ibuprofen, etc.) for at least a week before and after injections. Do not undergo BOTOX® treatment if you are allergic to any of the ingredients. A consultation with Dr. Pearlman will determine if you are suited for BOTOX® injections.
A. BOTOX® treatments simply involve injecting the face with a very fine needle and don’t require incisions, so there is little to no downtime associated with this procedure. In fact, many patients feel good enough to return to work and resume their daily routine as soon as they leave the office, but slight redness and swelling may be apparent at the injection sites.
A. The results of BOTOX® will become apparent within a few days after treatment.
A. Results vary depending on the treatment area, but BOTOX® results typically last four to six months.
A. The total cost of the procedure depends on the amount of BOTOX® needed as well as the number of areas that require improvement. During a personalized consultation with Dr. Pearlman, the total cost of your treatment will be determined.
