Botox Treatment Procedure


BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein from Clostridium botulinum bacterium. Briefly, it reduces muscle activity that causes those dreaded frown lines that form with age between the brows.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a treatment administered by a highly skilled physician. It’s simple and isn’t surgical. Depending on the problem area(s), the results of Botox treatment can include:

  • Smoothing of severe to moderate forehead lines, crow’s feet, and brow frown lines.
  • Correction of nose bunny lines.
  • Correction of face asymmetries.
  • Relief from excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis.)

What’s Involved?
BOTOX Brooklyn only takes 10 minutes, and it only involves a couple of tiny injections around the problem area.

How Long Does The Treatment Last?
Noticeable improvement can be seen in just a few days. The longevity of the results vary, but can last up to four months

Is The Treatment Safe?
The FDA approved BOTOX Cosmetic in 2002 for temporary treatment of severe to moderate brow frown lines in individuals 18-years-old to 65-years-old. In 2014, 6.7 million BOTOX procedures were done.

In the U.S., BOTOX Cosmetic was ranked by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery as the most popular doctor-administered aesthetic procedure for four years in a row.

Are There Any Side Effects?
The most common side effects are nausea and a temporary eyelid droop. Some patients may experience localized pain, inflammation, swelling, bleeding and/or bruising, tenderness, and redness.

ALS, myasthenia gravis, Lambert-Eaton syndrome, and certain other neuromuscular disorders may cause an increased risk of serious side effects. You should alert your Botox physician before the procedure if you have any neuromuscular disorder.

Some key points to keep in mind before and after BOTOX include:

  • Anesthesia isn’t used during BOTOX procedure.
  • A small amount of discomfort is to be expected, but your physician may numb the area with an anesthetic cream or cold compress prior to the injection to help keep pain as minimal and brief as possible.
  • There’s no downtime following BOTOX Brooklyn. You can immediately go back to school, work, or play.
  • It may take a few days to see visible improvement of moderate to severe brow frown lines.
  • Visible improvement does not translate to a radical or permanent change in your appearance; it’s not a new you that looks like you’ve had “work” done.
  • Improvement results vary and can continue to progress over the subsequent month, and longevity of the temporary treatment can last up to four months.
  • Lines are not alleviated but rather reduced. Therefore, there is no fear that you won’t be able to frown; smile; and have the startled, surprised look after the treatment.
