Best Botox NYC

To Botox, or not to Botox, that is the question:

While the dilemma may be as old as Shakespeare himself, we really make it simple for you with our easygoing Botox packages and consistently outstanding results! 

Botox initially gained approval for treatment of strabismus (poor eye muscle control) and blepharospasm (sustained, involuntary closure of eyelids) associated with dystonia in 1989. Its medical and cosmetic use has since demonstrated a remarkable extension of its original and very specific application. It is now used effectively to treat multiple neuromuscular conditions and other diseases and its cosmetic outreach is nothing short of astounding!

Botox did not only reshape treatment of multiple conditions, but has also made A-star appearances in multiple movies and had significant impact on popular culture, at least Samantha Jones would not have survived a day without it!

While we use Botox to primarily treat facial wrinkles other uses of Botox have emerged over time:

• Botox has been linked to increased happiness among people who use it, and while you can’t buy happiness, but can buy Botox they may actually be kind of the same thing!

• Botox is a great icebreaker during your next date especially when everyone who uses it talks about it!

• It was scientifically proven that Botox parties originated from Pre-birthday blues before a Birthday party, which were cured with a bucket load of Botox injections!

So don’t delay and get your Botox done today!

BOTOX COSMETIC FOR WRINKLES

Botox has become the number one non-surgical aesthetic procedure performed in the United States to treat facial wrinkles! Wrinkles, also known as rhytids, include frown lines (11’s), crow’s feet (wrinkles around your eyes), horizontal forehead lines, and bunny lines to name a few. Additionally, Botox has also been used to treat medical conditions such as excessive underarm sweating, TMJ disorder and major depression. Botox injections have an excellent safety profile and are quick to administer. Please explore our question and answer section for most common questions about Botox. It will provide you with better understanding of the process and will help manage your expectations!

WHAT AREAS DOES BOTOX COSMETIC TREAT?

Botox is derived from Clostridium botulinum bacteria and is isolated from the bacteria in the form of purified protein, which must be kept in cool temperatures to preserve its potency. It has been FDA approved since 1989 for the treatment of cervical dystonia and for the treatment of facial wrinkles since 2002.

The most commonly treated areas include the following:

  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Forehead or worry lines
  • Bunny lines on the nose
  • Dimpling of the chin (“peach pit” chin or peu D’Orange chin)
  • Vertical neck bands
  • Smoker’s lines (vertical lines around the lips)
  • Eyebrow lift (arched eyebrows)

CAN BOTOX TREAT ALL WRINKLES?

The facial wrinkles, also known as rhytids, are the result of two forces and involve two similar processes. Dynamic wrinkles are natural skin folds that follow contraction of any muscle group in the face and are essential part of any human emotion. The wrinkles do not persist in the relaxed state, and are usually not a cause of concern to patients. 

Static or permanent wrinkles are secondary to gradual collagen loss in the skin as the forces of muscle contraction exert its toll over time. Static wrinkles persist in the relaxed state, and are usually evident in pictures causing frustration to many patients.

Most patients in New York City try Botox for the first time when they start to notice static wrinkles. In the very early stage of collagen loss, temporary relaxation of muscles with Botox leads to complete reversal of wrinkles and immense satisfaction with the results.

Continued use of Botox significantly delays development and/or progression of permanent wrinkles and is the recommended course of action for many patients.

Botox is usually the first treatment that most of the clients in New York opt to receive as a minimally invasive anti-ageing solution. However, it is also important to realize that it is only one of the many tools available at MiracleFace MedSpa in New York City. When the wrinkles and folds are too deep to treat with muscle relaxation alone,  facial fillers can be utilized to achieve a more youthful appearance. For instance, Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Voluma are popular and well established dermal, hyaluronic acid derived fillers. They are used to replenish lost volume and definition in cheeks, nasolabial folds, lips, marionette lines, jowls and other areas. Additionally, laser and high intensity focused ultrasound treatments can be deployed to target deeper skin layers and to naturally stimulate more collagen production. Microneedling is another popular procedure that dramatically improves appearance of skin and fine wrinkles via mechanical stimulation of collagen production.

WHAT IS THE COST OF BOTOX IN NEW YORK?

The cost of Botox NYC ranges from $5 to $20 per unit of Botox in NYC. The most important factor when considering Botox injections in New York is the expertise of the clinician and consistency and the number of reviews left by prior patients. Recommendation from a family member or a friend is priceless and most trustworthy. Most people do not have that luxury and rely on other people sharing their experiences in determining which provider to choose for their beauty needs. We at MiracleFace offer the best Botox NYC and other minimally invasive packages in New York City! A lot of New Yorkers found our services to be a valuable contribution to their anti-ageing and aesthetic needs. This is evidenced by their reflections of our practice in numerous social media platforms including Yelp and Google, which you are welcome to explore!

HOW DOES BOTOX COSMETIC WORK?

A tiny needle is used to inject Botox into the muscle that creates the wrinkle. Botox then acts to prevent the nerve impulse sent by the brain from reaching the muscle. This overtime leads to muscle weakening, and the skin overlying the muscle gradually softens leading to resolution of the wrinkles.

IS BOTOX COSMETIC SAFE?

Botox has been FDA approved since 1989 and has demonstrated excellent safety profile without significant long-term complications. The protein obtained during purification process is completely safe for injections. Botox is injected directly into the muscle and doesn’t get absorbed anywhere else in the body. In New York and the rest of the world Botox has been used for decades, and there have been no known hazardous long-term side-effects associated with its use.

HOW LONG IS BOTOX COSMETIC TREATMENT?

This is truly a lunch break procedure. After the clinician has a short assessment of your problem and determines which area to inject, it takes approximately 10 minutes to administer. Anesthesia is usually not required.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS OF BOTOX COSMETIC?

The onset of muscle relaxation is gradual, and usually takes anywhere from 2-6 days to see the results. Full effect is achieved approximately within 2 weeks.

WILL ANYONE NOTICE BOTOX COSMETIC INJECTIONS?

The goal of Botox is to reduce the appearance of fine and moderate wrinkles on your face. A common denominator used in determining the effect of Botox is the degree that your face is “frozen”. Depending on the amount of Botox that is used and the desired outcome the results can vary from minimally “frozen” to completely “frozen”. If you are minimally frozen your muscles will retain the ability to contract and you should expect a minimal to mild decrease in wrinkle appearance. If you are completely “frozen” you muscles will not contract at all and your wrinkles will completely vanish. At MiracleFace MedSpa we thoroughly discuss the goals and potential outcomes of Botox injections to give you best results!

While the pharmaceutical mechanism of action of Botox is well known and established, its acceptance as an age-defying and rejuvenating tool has generated a lot of controversies. Some of the articles, such as in New York Times written by Debora L Spar clearly demonstrate this. It is also true that Botox injections in NYC are no longer unobtainable and reserved exclusively for the stars and celebrities. Botox is no longer prohibitively costly in terms of both money and time as recently described by Jennifer Weiner in New York Times.

BOTOX COSMETIC INJECTIONS NOTICE

HOW LONG DOES BOTOX COSMETIC LAST?

When Botox is properly injected and not excessively diluted to lower its potency it lasts anywhere from 3-4 months. The blocking action of Botox is temporary, and over time Botox is broken down and the ability of the muscles to contract returns to pre-injection state.

If Botox is done on a regular basis then the injection intervals get longer, and you can expect Botox to last up to 6 months. People who actively exercise may see the duration of Botox decrease to 2 months on a case-by-case basis.

IS THERE ANY BRUISING WITH BOTOX COSMETIC?

While the risk of bruising is minimal, most of the time there is no bruising at all.

IS BOTOX COSMETIC INJECTION PAINFUL?

The sensation of the injection is usually described as a mosquito bite or a mild prick. Most of the times no anesthesia is required, and our clients tolerate the procedure very well. If your skin is very sensitive an ice pack or topical lidocaine cream can be applied to numb the skin and make you more comfortable.

IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME AFTER BOTOX COSMETIC?

There are certain limitations to your activities after receiving Botox injections. It is not recommended to have alcohol, exercise, touch or massage areas of injections and to expose skin to hot water for 48 hours.

ARE THERE CONTRAINDICATIONS TO BOTOX COSMETIC?

If you have an active infection in the area where Botox will be injected you should wait until the infection resolves. Some clients may develop individual hypersensitivity to any ingredient in Botox formulation, such as the toxin itself or albumin (the protein to which it is linked). Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should avoid using Botox for the duration of their pregnancy or breastfeeding. If you have certain neuromuscular disorders such as ALS, Myasthenia Gravis and Lamber-Eaton syndrome you should not be receiving Botox injections.

WHAT ARE BOTOX COSMETIC SIDE EFFECTS?

Minimal bruising is the most common side effect associated with Botox injections. Very few people may experience mild headaches lasting for a few hours. If Botox is incorrectly injected it may lead to unintended relaxation of a different muscle groups. This may potentially result in eyelid drooping, flattening of the eyebrows and asymmetry. These unwanted side effects are temporary and can be avoided with proper placement of Botox.
Expert knowledge of facial anatomy is crucial to Botox injections, but more important, however, is knowledge of variant or unusual anatomy. When you receive your Botox injections in NYC at MiracleFace MedSpa you can rest assured that all clinicians have been trained in all aspects of Botox. Our Botox injections in NYC will produce consistently smooth and natural results and achieve desired rejuvenating effects without unwanted complications.

OTHER USES OF BOTOX COSMETIC

Medical uses of Botox are also extensive and here at MiracleFace MedSpa NYC we can treat other conditions as well. They include Hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm sweating), facial and ear pain or headaches associated with TMJ disease (temporomandibular joint disorder). Other medical conditions are currently being evaluated to treatment with Botox cosmetic.

CAN BOTOX SLIM DOWN MY FACE AND TREAT TMJ?

The TMJ joint functions to open and close your mouth. When you are under a lot of stress you clench and grind your teeth. As a results, the masseter and temporalis muscles can hypertrophy and go into spasm resulting in pain and headaches. It can also lead to a boxed or squared look of your lower face, which for some people is aesthetically displeasing. Botox injections into the masseter and temporalis muscles result in slimmer, more defined look of your lower face and also alleviate the pain associated with TMJ.

CAN BOTOX DECREASE UNDERARM SWEATING?

When Botox is injected into the axillary area it effectively paralyzes the nerve endings that stimulate sweat glands, and can decrease unwanted sweating by as much as 90%.

BOTOX FOR DEPRESSION?

The idea behind having Botox for depression is that that facial expressions may feed information back to our brain and influence our feelings. If you are frowning a lot that may create a negative feedback loop to your brain and have a negative effect on your emotions.

Botox has actually recently been scientifically recognized as an effective treatment for major depression, and our Botox NYC injections are only a short call away!

BOTOX FOR ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION?

Botox is also currently being investigated as an adjunct treatment of erectile dysfunction  and preliminary results are very promising, and very soon it may become yet another indication for Botox use. We may start offering Botox NYC services for erectile dysfunction at MiracleFace  MedSpa  NYC in the near future.

Made my appointment with ease after a little phone tag and texts. They were able to see me within a few days and there are late evening and weekend times available. The location is in a large office building and the treatment room is very clean. Dr. D was extremely nice ( easy on the eye) and listen to what I wanted ( Fillers/ lips and Botox / forehead) we discuss what to except.
I love my results. I feel refreshed and my lips are very natural looking. I have had many compliments and it’s fun watching people trying to figure out what looks different. I received a follow up text asking how I was feeling and if I had any concerns. Which I didn’t and I honestly don’t mind communicating via texts. I will definitely be back for my tune up!
