BOTOX® Injections in Long Island, NY
Safe & Effective Way to Restore a Softer, More Youthful Appearance
LAUGH. SMILE. FROWN.
Every time we laugh, smile, frown, or show other facial expressions, we are contracting certain muscles in our face. In time, these muscles tend to become stuck in a state of contraction. It is at this time that we begin to notice signs of aging such as crow’s feet or frown lines.
BOTOX® injections provide results like a facelift without the need for surgery, but it’s essential to choose a doctor you can trust for safe, effective treatment. Israel S. Eckman, M.D. at Long Island Dermatology has over 20 years of experience in providing effective, expert medical skin care and cosmetic services to his patients. Our skin care treatment plans are customized to your specific needs to ensure you get effective treatment and results you will love, giving you the peace of mind knowing your BOTOX® injections will be administered by a board-certified dermatologist.
Where Can You Use Botox?
- Between the eyebrows (glabella, worry lines, or the 11s)
- Around the eyes (crow’s feet)
- Forehead lines
- Brow lift
- Nose (nasalis, bunny lines, or wolf lines)
- Around the mouth (lip lines or smoker’s lines)
- Down-turned mouth (DAOs)
- Dimpling of the chin (mentalis)
- Neck bands (platysmal bands)
How does it work?
BOTOX® is derived from a purified form of botulinum toxin, which our board-certified specialists inject under the skin to smooth fine lines and wrinkles and improve the signs of aging overall. By blocking nerve impulses to the muscles where it was injected, BOTOX® works to reduce muscle activity leading to persistent lines between the brows, providing you with muscle relaxation and a more youthful look.
Why should I consider BOTOX®?
If you are tired of trying to hide frown lines, fine lines, or wrinkles, our BOTOX® injections can help you regain a youthful appearance. You will receive noticeable results with no surgery and zero recovery time.
Will I still be able to make facial expressions?
While our BOTOX® injections provide visible smoothing of wrinkles and other troublesome lines, you will still look and feel natural, with all your facial expressions intact. The wrinkle treatment simply reduces muscle activity that causes frown lines.
How quickly will I see a difference?
After your quick, 10-minute treatment, you may start seeing noticeable results within 48 hours of leaving our office. Most patients report a softening in the appearance of frown lines and the area between their brows up to 14 days of the injection.
How long can I expect my results to last?
The amount of time between BOTOX® injections varies based on several factors, including your metabolism, lifestyle habits, and more. Generally speaking, our patients continue to see visible results for four to six months before scheduling another treatment.
What are the injection-related side effects?
Side effects from BOTOX® injections are typically minor in nature, with the most common side effect being minor bruising at the injection site, along with a slight headache that resolves within a few days. By choosing a trusted, board-certified practice such as Long Island Dermatology, the risk of infection, inflammation, and swelling will be reduced.
Is treatment with BOTOX® painful?
Discomfort during your BOTOX® injection is minimal and short-lived and should be no more painful than a mosquito bite. If you have sensitive skin, we may recommend an ice pack or topical lidocaine cream to make you more comfortable.
