Botox® Injections NYC

What is Botox®?

Botox® is a simple and safe procedure performed by Sobel Dermatology that takes only a few minutes and requires no recovery time. Used safely in medicine around NYC for decades, Botox® injections have revolutionized cosmetic dermatology by effectively reversing the visible signs of aging by injecting minute amounts of botulinum toxin into selective groups of muscles. It is made from a highly purified protein that is very safe when administered by a trained physician.

Botox® gives you a rejuvenated look by smoothing crow’s feet beneath the eyes, frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal lines across the forehead, worry lines around the mouth, and lines on the neck.

Areas treated

  • The forehead
  • Frown
  • Crows feet
  • Lip lines
  • Bunny lines on the nose
  • Corners of the mouth
  • Neck
  • It is also possible to lift the eyebrows with Botox

What to expect during Botox® treatment

Using a micro-sized needle, Botox® is injected into certain muscles of the face and neck to relax them and lessen the appearance of wrinkles that result from our daily expression, such as crow’s feet, lines between the eyes, the horizontal lines across the forehead, to raise the corners of the mouth, decrease lines around upper and lower lips and decrease the bands on the neck.Tiny needles are used so there is virtually no bruising so no one will know a procedure has been performed. The medication relaxes the muscles in the face that cause wrinkles. In this way, botox smoothes the lines in the skin that make you look tired or angry.

How to prepare for Botox®

It is important to stop taking any alcohol, ibuprofen, aspirin, fish oil or vitamin E one week before the procedure. If you are preparing for a big event it is best to get Botox® 1-2 weeks before the event to ensure proper healing of the area treated.

How long does the Botox® last?

The results can be seen within four to five days and last three to six months with no downtime or surgery and little to no discomfort.

Recovery after treatment

It is important to not lie down for a one hour after the Botox® injections, You do not want the Botox to migrate into another muscle group. Do not rub or massage the area where the Botox® was injected. You can exercise after one hour and resume your normal activities immediately.

Dr. Sobel is excellent with Botox® and fillers. I would not go anywhere else. I have referred my sister to him and she had a similarly good experience. He is extremely capable, very courteous and a pleasure to see. There are occasions when you will have to wait for him but he is well worth it. – N.D.
