If you are looking to rejuvenate the appearance of your skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, Botox® Cosmetic may be the solution for you. One treatment takes as little as 15 minutes, which means it can even be done on your lunchbreak, with no downtime and quick results that can last for several months before it’s time for any additional treatments.
Botox can be used on a variety of areas in the face and neck (view some of the top treatment areas) and is a top choice for non-surgical wrinkle treatments. One of the most popular treatment areas for Botox® Cosmetic is for the frown lines. Frown lines (sometimes called “11″ lines due to their shape) between the eyebrows are caused by the action of a facial muscle called the corrugator and the bunching of skin from repeated facial muscle contractions. Now you can soften and reduce these frown lines around your brows, eyes and forehead without surgery and without scars, by a simple treatment with Botox®.
Botox also can be an excellent option for treating the lines in the forehead, the lines around the eyes (crow’s feet) and the muscle bands visible on the neck. In addition to that, Dr. Green is now one of the first dermatologists in NYC to provide a non-surgical jaw reduction procedure via the use of just 1 injection on each side of the jaw, known as the “Botox square jaw reduction” or “Botox Masseter reduction.”

While a majority of Botox patients are female, in recent years, Botox has gained popularity amongst men too, with a greater percentage of male patients starting to look at options. In fact stats from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons noted a 337% increase in men receiving Botox injections since 2000! Find out more about Botox options for men.
What is Botox?
Botox® is the trade name of Botulinum Toxin Type A, a purified toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. In extremely small doses, Dr. Green injects Botox directly into the specific muscles that cause wrinkles such as frown lines, crow’s feet around the eyes, bands around the neck and more. These isolated muscles are frozen by the Botox and can no longer contract. The action of frowning is stopped, and frown lines diminish.
A similar procedure can be used to provide a “lift” in areas such as around the eyebrows, and can be used with other dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Sculptra to help restore the youthful features of your face, all in a way that looks and feels natural.
How long does it take to see any results:
While it varies per patient, your final results will usually be noticeable within a few days after your session, or may take up to 10 days to become visible. The effects are long-lasting, and many patients find they can go between 3 to 5 months between additional touch-ups.
