Injectables: Botox® Filler Treatments
BOTOX® is a nonsurgical treatment that helps to temporarily improve moderate to severe frown lines between brows, forehead lines and crow’s feet. Botox® blocks nerve impulses to the muscles, decreasing muscle activity lessening the appearance of moderate to severe lines for real noticeable results. You will see an improvement that can last up to 4 months.

To Botox or not to Botox that is the question - who does it, why, how it works, what to expect, and what to forget about?
Muscle contractions play a major role in the formation of lines and wrinkles. Every time you squint, frown or smile, your facial muscles contract and cause your skin to wrinkle. Since these are repetitive facial expressions that are frequently made, the wrinkles and furrows in your skin are noticeable even when the muscles are not contracting. Thankfully, there are procedures available that can help you reduce the signs of aging. At Sensitive Touch, our Botox NYC experts can help you look years younger and eradicate lines and wrinkles.
Botox Cosmetic is a non-surgical procedure that is administered directly into specific facial muscles. The injections contain a diluted form of botulinum toxin A, which works by blocking the nerve signals that cause the muscles in your face to contract. Specifically, the injections block the release of acetylcholine, a chemical that triggers muscle contractions. Since muscle activity is reduced and they can no longer contract, wrinkles are diminished as they begin to relax and soften.
Botox treatments are the most effective on moderate-to-severe frown lines that form between the eyebrows. The procedure can be used to eliminate wrinkles on other areas of the face as well, including the eyes, forehead and mouth. The injections have also proven to be effective at reducing excessive sweating, migraine headaches and ocular muscle spasms.
Although anesthesia is not required prior to receiving Botox injections, your skin care professional may choose to apply an anesthetic cream or cold pack to the area. The injections are then made into specific points on your skin. The treatment process is not painful and any feelings of discomfort are minimal and brief. Total treatment time is typically less than 10 minutes and you can resume your normal activities immediately.
Botox Cosmetic will not drastically change your facial appearance and you will still be able to frown, look surprised and make other facial expressions. Although your results may vary, you can expect your results to last between four and six months.
Anyone who is in good health and has noticeable lines and wrinkles can be a candidate for Botox treatments, although you should not receive the injections if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, taking certain medications or have a neurological disease. The injections are an excellent option for anyone who would like to smooth their skin and revitalize their appearance.
