Millions of treatments of Botox are performed every year in the U.S and with good reason. It is one of the top facial injection procedures, offering excellent results for reducing lines, wrinkles and treating other aesthetic facial issues. Dr. Rousso and his team at his Manhattan office offer carefully placed Botox injections for phenomenal results for his patients.
Botox is a neurotoxin that acts as an interceptor in the nerves. When signals are sent for the muscle to contract, Botox blocks the message, keeping the muscle relaxed. This can be used to stop line or wrinkle formation, most commonly between the brows and on the forehead. However, it can also be used for crow’s feet and smile lines, as well as for many other cosmetic uses. The treatment lasts about four to six months before the neurotoxin wears off and needs to be repeated to maintain the desired results.
Professional Placement of Botox Injections
Botox can have incredible results in changing the appearance of your face when placed with the precision of a skilled facial plastic surgeon. The key to getting the best results is understanding the exact position to place the injection to affect only the targeted muscles. This can be to treat lines or wrinkles or for changes to the facial appearance, like reducing the squareness of the jaw. Also, using the correct needles and techniques can reduce bruising and swelling, hiding the evidence of treatment.
Botox can be used alone or with other cosmetic treatments like dermal fillers or plastic surgery. Dr. Rousso can discuss how Botox can help, from creating a liquid facelift to softening brow lines.
