Botox® Cosmetic is a simple physician administered treatment which involves the injection of purified protein into specific areas to temporarily smooth lines, wrinkles and furrows caused by excessive facial movements. Botox Cosmetic is the most popular aesthetic treatment in the world today with over 4 million procedures done last year alone. This is the only treatment of its kind that is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
When administering Botox New York City, Dr. Vafa evaluates patterns of facial muscle movement and looks for moderate to severe facial lines caused by the action of these muscles. The location, size and action of the muscles that create these "dynamic lines" vary among different individuals. Dr. Vafa will mark these locations and administer several tiny injections of Botox Manhattan directly into the muscles that cause these dynamic lines. The objective is to create a youthful and more relaxed appearance and NOT a "frozen" or "expressionless" look.*
Each area requires a different number of units of Botox as determined by Dr. Vafa.
Note that in experienced hands, Botox Cosmetic can be used for more than treating lines and wrinkles. With injections into specific areas of the face, Dr. Vafa is able to reshape the brows and alter their position as well as slightly round and open the eyes.
Areas that can be treated include but not limited to:
Botox Glabella/frown lines (area between the brows)
Botox Horizontal forehead lines
Botox Bunny lines (wrinkles on top of your nose)
Botox Crow's feet
Botox Peri-oral lines (around the mouth)
Botox Neck bands
Botox Brow lift (Botox can be injected above the outer area of the brow to create a lifting effect)
The procedure is usually comfortable and requires no anesthesia, although some patients choose to numb the area with a cold pack prior to injecting. Downtime is not expected after the procedure and bruising is uncommon. You will notice a marked improvement in days and the results should last 3 to 6 months.*

Note: Dr. Vafa uses Preserved Normal Saline for reconstitution of Botox which decreases the discomfort of the injections.
