One of the most used and sought-after cosmetic treatments on the planet is Botox® cosmetic. It has been decades since Botox was FDA-approved for the treatment of frown lines on the brow, and it has received approval for many other treatments since then. In about 15 minutes, Botox injections can be performed to smooth away lines or correct other cosmetic issues. Uptown Body Contouring offers Botox treatments for our patients at our clinic in Manhattan.
Botox injections are used for cosmetic changes involving muscle contraction. Botox is a neuromodulator that impacts the nerves that cause muscle movements. The toxin in Botox blocks nerve signals to muscles, resulting in relaxed muscles. This can help smooth dynamic lines like frown, worry or smile lines by relaxing the muscles that cause these skin creases. It can also be used to impact muscles that cause bunny lines, gummy smiles and many other cosmetic concerns.
Botox treatments use multiple injections in the same area to target the specific muscles. The forehead is a common treatment area when the “11s” between the eyebrows or furrows on the brow occur. Botox injections can also treat crow’s feet around the eyes or slim the face with masseter reduction. There are multiple uses for Botox as a cosmetic treatment for the face.
Quick Botox Treatments
Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio and our team at Uptown Body Contouring offer quick Botox treatments at our NYC clinic. Most appointments take about 15 minutes, and you can return to your normal daily activities after your treatment. Botox requires up to a week for the results and lasts for about 3-4 months after treatment. The most common side effects are caused by the injections, which involves slight swelling and bruising at the injection sites.
Botox is used both as a treatment and deterrent for dynamic wrinkles, as well as many other cosmetic benefits. Patients from their 20s on up enjoy the effects of Botox, and it can be combined with many other cosmetic procedures. To learn more about this popular treatment, contact us at Uptown Body Contouring.
