Do you have frown lines, laugh lines, crow’s feet, or other facial lines and wrinkles on your face you would like to get rid of? Let our team help you rid yourself of undesirable facial lines. Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxin A) and Botox® (onabotulinumtoxin A) are two forms of botulinum toxin, which is a neuromodulator that is injected into facial muscles to relax the muscle. Without the muscle’s tension on your skin, wrinkles are reduced and the skin becomes smooth.

Dysport® and Botox® may help improve the following:

  • Crow’s Feet
  • Frown Lines
  • Laugh Lines
  • Bunny Lines
  • Lip Lines

Dysport® and Botox® both are exceptionally safe and efficacious; having been used for many years. The injections are done quickly in our office and you may notice your new, refreshed look after only a few days. The results often last as long as four months. We pride ourselves on offering high-quality results with minimal discomfort and downtime.

Botox® in New York City

Botox® is a traditional cosmetic dermatology treatment that has been used for decades to reverse wrinkles and folds in the skin associated with aging. The effects of Botox® typically last up to four months before you’ll need to determine if retreatment is necessary. Radiant Skin Dermatology and Laser is a cosmetic dermatology practice in New York City offering a variety of non-surgical cosmetic dermatology skin care treatments that include Botox®, dermal fillers, Ultherapy, and CoolSculpting®.

How Botox® Works

When you speak, laugh, or make other expressions, your brain sends signals to the muscles beneath the skin, which move the face. Repeated motion, however, “breaks” the structure of collagen that sits beneath your facial skin, causing creases and wrinkles to appear over time. Botox® works by blocking the nerve impulses that prompt the muscles beneath your skin to move. When the muscles move less and remain in a relaxed position, the skin of your face lies smooth and flat, eliminating the appearance of wrinkles.

I’m young, why should I consider Botox?

Botox® is not only an excellent treatment for existing wrinkles, it can help prevent or lessen the effects of future wrinkles as well. By reducing the amount of movement in the muscles beneath your skin, Botox® treatments will preserve the structure of the collagen beneath your skin and prevent wrinkles from forming or deepening.

Will Botox® Affect My Ability to Feel Sensations or Make Expressions?

While Botox® does affect the nerve impulses in the muscles beneath your skin, it does not affect your ability to feel your face or make expressions. When administered by an experienced dermatologist serving New York City, Botox® will produce results that look completely natural and allow you to speak and make a full range of expressions normally.

How Long Can I Use Botox®?

The use of Botox® is both safe and effective over the long term. Botox® treatment can be continued over the course of years or even decades with no adverse effects. You and your dermatologist can work together to determine the extent and length of your Botox® treatments to achieve the results you want.
