BOTOX® Cosmetic, or botulinum toxin type A, is a popular non-surgical injection which can reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles, including crow's feet, frown lines, worry lines and lines on the neck. BOTOX®may also be used as a non-surgical brow lift for raising the outside corners of the eyebrows and restoring this area of the face to its proper position.
BOTOX® works by blocking the nerve impulses to the muscles responsible for wrinkles, thus relaxing the wrinkles and providing a more rejuvenated facial appearance. BOTOX® is also an effective treatment for excessive sweating. Dr. Roland performs wrinkle treatment injections in his Manhattan office, and the procedure takes about ten minutes or so to complete. A very fine needle is used to administer several tiny injections directly into the targeted muscles.There is little downtime or recovery associated with BOTOX® treatment and patients are able to immediately return to their normal routine. The effect can be seen within five to seven days and will last for up to four months. Patients may experience some minor, temporary redness or swelling at the injection site which tends to fade quickly.

Unlike injectable fillers which fill in lines and other depressions, BOTOX® works by relaxing the muscles responsible for dynamic wrinkles which occur over time with certain facial expressions that we make.
The best candidates for BOTOX® are in good physical condition and have realistic expectations for the improvement of frown lines, crow's feet, worry lines, neck lines or certain other facial wrinkles.
Treatment with BOTOX® takes approximately ten minutes or so and anesthesia is not necessary. Dr. Roland will make several tiny injections using a very fine needle directly into the targeted muscles.
There is minimal recovery or downtime following BOTOX® treatment. Some temporary redness or swelling may occur at the injection site, however patients can return to their normal routine right away.
