Long Island Medical & Cosmetic Dermatology can help you get the youthful look you want—all it takes is a simple Botox treatment! Read below to learn the details of this aesthetically restorative treatment.

The Basics on Botox

Botox contains a neurotoxin produced by Clostridium botulinum, a bacterium. Although some people may be intimidated by these terms, rest assured that the treatment is extremely safe, as the materials are FDA-approved to be used to eliminate and/or reduce wrinkles and creases on your face.

Contrary to some rumors, Botox doesn't cause patients to lose the capability to show facial expression and, although it is a simple process, solely a licensed professional should administer the treatment. A doctor who understands the sensitivity of Botox and is an expert at working with facial anatomy should be the only one to conduct this treatment.

Your doctor injects the problem areas with Botox, paralyzing the muscles that contract to create wrinkles and creases. In simple terms, muscles secrete a chemical called acetylcholine that causes contraction—botox blocks acetylcholine production, stopping these wrinkle-creating movements.

The most common problem areas people suffer from are crow's feet, frown, worry, and smile lines, and laugh lines. After Botox treatment, you will start to notice smoother skin. Results are actually visible in two to four days and should last about three to four months. Additionally, Botox is a unique cosmetic procedure and has almost no downtime and doesn't take long to be completed. Most people can even go right back to work right after the treatment!

One last great thing about Botox is that it is almost entirely painless!

Facial frown lines can make you look angry all the time. Would you like to rejuvenate your facial appearance and project a more youthful, botoxhappier outlook? Why not investigate the benefits of Botox Cosmetic treatments from Long Island Medical & Cosmetic Dermatology? Applied by your Syosset-area dermatologists, Dr. Daniel Sherer and Dr. Todd Coven, Botox injections smooth lines and wrinkles without complex surgeries which interfere with your busy life. Learn more about Botox here.

 

Botox and you

You could be perfectly matched for each other if:

  • You are in good overall health
  • Are between the ages of 18 and 65
  • Have realistic aesthetic goals for your facial appearance
  • Wish to smooth facial lines across your forehead, at the corners of your eyes, between your eyebrows, and between your nose and the corners of your mouth

Consisting of a very purified form of the botulism toxin, Botox Cosmetic is injected just under the skin in key areas of the face. Your Syosset-area dermatologist uses a super fine needle to place the medication, resulting in an almost immediate smoothing effect. You'll notice maximum results in a few days.

The injections feel something like an insect sting and produce some redness, tenderness, and swelling under the skin. These side effects go away quickly, and you can return to your normal routine right away.
How does Botox work? The American Academy of Ophthalmology says that the purified protein prevents the contraction of certain muscles in the face. These muscles are responsible for what dermatologists call dynamic wrinkling. With muscular movement reduced, skin appears smoother and younger.

Other uses for Botox
Other physicians use Botox for very important medical treatments such as:

  • Reduction of migraine headaches in frequency and intensity
  • Control of overactive urinary bladder
  • Treatment of temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ)
  • Correction of strabismus (cross-eyed)

In short, Botox is an effective and versatile medication.

Find out more about Botox
Just call one of the two Syosset-area locations of Long Island Medical & Cosmetic Dermatology, and ask for a Botox consultation with Dr. Sherer or Dr. Coven. He'll be happy to answer all your questions, and if you're qualified, he will set up a Botox treatment plan to keep your face young-looking and line-free.
