BOTOX® Cosmetic in New York, NY
Men and women of all ages develop fine lines and wrinkles due to repeated facial expressions and muscle movements. BOTOX® Cosmetic in New York is an effective option for patients who want to stay ahead of the aging game and address these lines but cannot take time away from work for more invasive treatments.
What Is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a neuromodulator derived from botulinum toxin type A. When injected into the facial muscles, it blocks the chemical signals that instruct the muscles to contract, thereby relaxing and preventing expression-causing lines and wrinkles from forming. As a result, BOTOX®Cosmetic is a highly effective, surgery-free form of facial enhancement.
