We smile, we frown, we express ourselves in our facial movements. As we age, our skin loses its elastic quality and, over time, traces of those dynamic facial movements become permanently etched in. Fortunately, there are a range of minimally-invasive treatments available on today’s market that can help revitalize and refresh the face. Every year, millions of Americans seek BOTOX® treatments to gently erase those now-static facial wrinkles and improve the appearance of the skin.
BOTOX® is an FDA-approved injectable cosmetic treatment that temporarily relaxes muscle movement to smooth out age-related lines and creases. Its effectiveness rests in its active ingredient, a powerful bacteria-derived agent that, when injected into the skin with a fine needle, inhibits facial muscle movement. When the facial muscles do not contract, the skin stays relaxed: wrinkles become less prominent and the formation of expression lines is temporarily halted.
At the NYC office of Dr. Richard Westreich, BOTOX® is one of the most highly requested treatments. He uses BOTOX® to address a variety of concerns on the face.
|Area of Concern||How BOTOX® Can Help|
|Eye Area||Softens wrinkles (crow’s feet) around the eyes|
|Forehead and Eyebrow Area||Diminishes a furrowed brow (glabellar lines) and smoothes out horizontal forehead lines|
|Mid-Face Region||Eliminates nose wrinkles|
|Lower Face Region||Reduces fine lines around the mouth and Lifts down-turned corners of the mouth|
Not only is BOTOX® an impressive treatment that can reduce existing lines, it is also an excellent way to help delay the appearance of new wrinkles. Dr. Westreich often sees younger patients who are eager to stay one step ahead of the natural aging process. When part of an overall healthy lifestyle and skin care routine, BOTOX® treatments can be a great anti-aging ally.
BOTOX® has its limitations, however. It cannot be used to treat severely lax skin and it will not improve advanced signs of aging. If BOTOX® is not appropriate for your skin, Dr. Westreich can suggest alternative treatments that can rejuvenate your appearance.
To achieve natural-looking results with BOTOX® injections, an experienced injector with an eye for detail is necessary. Dr. Westreich, a top-rated New York board-certified plastic surgeon, has mastered non-surgical techniques. His patients never appear artificial or “worked on.” If you would like to know if BOTOX® treatments can help you reverse the signs of aging on your face, contact Dr. Westreich’s Manhattan office to schedule a personalized consultation.Click Here for A Consultation
