Botox injections temporarily relax facial muscles, making skin appear smoother and less wrinkled. When injected into carefully chosen muscles, Botox blocks the chemical signals that cause muscles to contract. When the muscles are unable to contract, the skin flattens and wrinkles soften, leading to a more youthful appearance.

Botox is ideal for treating any of the following:

  • frown lines between the eyebrows and on the bridge of the nose
  • forehead creases
  • crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes
  • skin bands on the neck

Botox injections take only a few minutes, and no anesthesia is required. It generally takes three to seven days for the injection to fully take effect, and the effects will last approximately three months.

Patients enjoy optimal results when Botox is used in conjunction with carefully selected skin care products and procedures administered by top plastic surgeonsNYC Drs. Keegan and Vickery can help customize an ideal regimen based on your preferences and skin type.
