BOTOX® Cosmetic in New York, NY
The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face is one of the most common cosmetic frustrations for women and men of all ages. And while many people believe that lines in the skin are simply a result of age, the truth is that wrinkles can develop due to repeated muscle contractions caused by facial expressions (smiling, frowning, and squinting).
BOTOX® Cosmetic in New York is an effective non-surgical option for patients who want to stay ahead of the aging game and address these lines without cosmetic surgery.
What Is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the most trusted names in cosmetic treatments. BOTOX Cosmetic is a neuromodulator derived from botulinum toxin type A. When injected into the facial muscles, this neurotoxin temporarily blocks the chemical signals that instruct the muscles to contract. This causes the muscles to relax and prevents expression-causing lines and wrinkles from forming. As a result, BOTOX® Cosmetic is a highly effective, minimally invasive form of facial enhancement.

Am I a Candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments are as simple as cosmetic treatments get and are safe, refreshing, and rejuvenating. This injectable treatment is best suited for eliminating moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, laugh lines, and other fine wrinkles in the face.
Ideal candidates are women and men who are looking to temporarily reduce the presence of dynamic lines and wrinkles (lines caused by repeated muscle movements). BOTOX® Cosmetic can be used as a preventive or corrective treatment, depending on the extent of your facial concerns.
BOTOX® Cosmetic candidates:
- Are at least 18 years old
- Have realistic expectations for their results
- Are in good general health
It is important to be aware that BOTOX® Cosmetic cannot correct severe facial aging and skin sagging. In more extensive cases, patients will likely benefit from a surgical facelift.
Additionally, it is important to note that BOTOX® Cosmetic will not restore volume to the face. Neuromodulators work with facial muscles, not facial fat. If you are interested in restoring lost facial volume, you can choose to combine dermal fillers or facial fat transfer to your BOTOX®Cosmetic treatment.
How Is BOTOX® Cosmetic Performed?
During your consultation for BOTOX® Cosmetic, you and your provider will discuss your needs and goals for the treatment in detail. Your injectable provider will also review your medical history, explain your treatment options, and determine if BOTOX® Cosmetic is right for you. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the treatment.
One of the main benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetic is that it can be personalized to fit your needs. To personalize your BOTOX® Cosmetic, you and your injector will discuss your goals and decide on the best treatment areas.
For your BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment session, your provider at New Look New Life Cosmetic Surgical Arts will inject a predetermined amount of the neuromodulator into specific muscles that are responsible for the unwanted dynamic lines. Each BOTOX® Cosmetic session takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes to complete.
Once injected, BOTOX® Cosmetic works by relaxing the muscles to soften wrinkles and folds in the face and neck.
