Premier Treatment with Botox in Tribeca
What is Botox?
Botox diminishes and eliminates facial wrinkles and lines, providing you with smooth skin and removing years from your facial appearance. These wrinkles are often caused by decades of laughing, smiling, and frowning.
Botox treats forehead creases, frown lines between eyebrows (glabellar lines), creases surrounding the mouth, crow’s feet (lines specifically located around the eyes), dimples, and neck lines.
Botox New York Patients
Botox or Dysport and other neuromodulators are great tools to rejuvenate the upper face. They are especially helpful for the reduction of forehead lines, “1 1” lines (between the eyebrows) and the “crow’s feet” (Iines next to the eyes). The neuromodulators work to decrease movement of the region to prevent the lines from forming. Results take 1-2 weeks to take effect.

How Does Botox Work?
Botox specifically treats dynamic wrinkles, which are the wrinkles on your face that are caused by years of facial expressions. The treatment contains Botulinum Toxin, which is produced by the bacterium clostridium botulinum. When injected into facial wrinkles, Botox blocks the nerve signals that are causing the muscles to contract – the result is a rejuvenated appearance.
