Botox® Treatments

Botox® is a simple and safe procedure. No sedation or local anesthetic is required with botox and you can resume normal activities immediately. Some patients experience a slight temporary bruising at the injection site. This can be covered up with make-up.

Botox  is performed by Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Douglas M. Senderoff, MD, FACS, in his Manhattan, New York or Westchester, New York office.

Dynamic wrinkles are caused by contractions of the delicate underlying facial muscles every time you smile, laugh, or frown. The more emotions you show, the deeper these wrinkles and lines are likely to be. Now, thanks to a new use for an approved drug, Botox, dynamic lines can be dramatically softened.

Botox blocks impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that are related to expression lines. After botox treatment, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled while the untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing normal facial expression to be unaffected.

Botox injections have been used safely and effectively for over ten years to treat many ophthalmological and neurological disorders. Each year thousands of patients receive botox treatments for a variety of conditions and it is quickly becoming a popular treatment for reversing the visible signs of aging.
