Botox and Other Filler Treatments in NY
Smiling, laughing, frowning and a number of other facial expressions have the unfortunate natural consequence of creating permanent wrinkles and creases in the face. Over time, these wrinkles can deepen, making you look angry, upset or tired - even when you are happy and fully refreshed. Botox treatment, one of the most popular forms of cosmetic treatment in the U.S., can help to erase the wrinkles and lines you’ve developed over time and give you a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance.
If you are interested in recovering a younger look for yourself, and are considering Botox treatment in New York, call Dr. Paul Dreschnack at Optimal Beauty today to learn more.
Treatment through Botox is a safe, quick and effective way to take years off your appearance. The effects of a single Botox treatment can last for up to six months, erasing fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, forehead, mouth and neck. Physicians are now finding that in addition to its cosmetic effects, Botox may also be a useful treatment for migraine headaches, excessive perspiration, chronic pain in the back and jaw, and muscle spasms.
Botox works by relaxing the muscles in the face that cause wrinkles. It was initially approved by the FDA for use in treating eye muscle spasms before its cosmetic value was realized. Through small injections of the medication in specific areas, Botox is able to block nerve signals that cause muscles to contract and form lines and wrinkles. It causes very little discomfort at the time of treatment and requires no recovery or downtime before you are able to get on with your normal activities.
While Botox is the best know dermal filler, there are several other fillers that Dr. Dreschnack might consider using. These include such brand names as Restylane and Juvederm. These are laboratory produced products whose chief component is hyaluronic acid (HA). The product replicates a natural sugar found in the skin. Since it has no animal or human by-products, it is very well-tolerated and is unlikely to cause any allergic or autoimmune reactions.
The products are also used to minimize lines around the mouth, treat marionette lines, and fill out and enhance the lips. Through simple injections the appearance of your face can improve immediately. It can also be used around the eyes to erase under-eye circles or hollows. These procedures can help give your skin a fresher more youthful vibrancy.
