DISCOVER BEST BOTOX TREATMENT AT SKINLY AESTHETICS IN NYC

Since its FDA approval in 2002, Botox Cosmetic has risen to become the top noninvasive aesthetic treatment in the U.S. As a powerful neuromodulator, Botox temporarily ‘freezes’ targeted facial muscles by blocking the nerve signals that initiate expressions, effectively reducing muscle activity and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles caused by repetitive facial movements. Known for its rapid application and quick results with no downtime, Botox continues to be a preferred choice in cosmetic dermatology.

For individuals looking to combat the early signs of aging or prevent wrinkles, Botox is a proven solution. At Skinly Aesthetics in NYC, Dr. Schwarzburg expertly uses Botox Cosmetic for wrinkle reduction to achieve a rejuvenated and youthful appearance. To enhance the effects of Botox and provide comprehensive aesthetic improvements, he also employs other top-tier injectables such as Sculptra, Juvederm, and Restylane.

COSMETIC BOTOX: TREATMENT AREAS EXPLAINED

Dr. Schwarzburg explains that Botox injections treat a variety of facial areas, each addressing specific concerns:

Horizontal Forehead Lines:

Frequent eyebrow-raising creates pesky horizontal lines. Botox smooths these lines and lifts the eyebrows.

Glabellar Lines (11s):

Overactive corrugator and procerus muscles create vertical lines between the eyebrows. Botox treatments soften these lines for a friendlier appearance.

Crow’s Feet:

Caused by smiling or squinting, and exacerbated by sun exposure, these lines around the eyes are lessened with Botox.

Nefertiti Neck Botox Lift:

Botox injections in the vertical platysmal bands prevent the sagging “turkey neck” look.

Perioral Lines (Smoker’s Lines)

Tension in the orbicularis oris muscle, often from smoking, results in lines around the mouth that Botox effectively reduces.

Gummy Smile:

Excessive gum display due to overactive facial muscles can cause self-consciousness. Botox reduces gum exposure, enhancing confidence in social situations.

Average Botox dose varies depending on the area injected

Botox Lip Flip:

This technique flips the upper lip outward for a fuller appearance, sometimes complemented by lip fillers.

Bunny Lines:

Created by scrunching the nose, these lines are smoothed by Botox, which relaxes the nasalis muscle.

Chin Dimples:

Botox can even out the texture of a dimpled chin by calming an overactive mentalis muscle.

Botox Brow Lift:

By relaxing certain facial muscles, Botox achieves a lifted brow line, enhancing the eyes’ appearance.

Jawline Injections:

Targeting the masseter muscle, Botox can slim the jawline, softening a square jaw for a more balanced facial silhouette.

Baby-Botox:

A lighter Botox formulation that allows for natural facial expressions, also used to rejuvenate skin and diminish pores.

Trapezius Botox (TrapTox/BarbieTox):

Botox in the trapezius muscles reduces the bulky look of the neck and shoulders, offering a slender neckline and relief from muscle tension.

Botox Injection Areas for Medical Purposes

BOTOX: THERAPEUTIC APPLICATIONS FOR MEDICAL CONDITIONS

  • Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMJ): TMJ is commonly due to overactivity in the masseter muscles, leading to jaw tension, teeth grinding, and headaches. Botox alleviates these symptoms through simple injections.
  • Migraine Headaches: Chronic migraines affect millions, causing significant discomfort. Botox, applied to the head and neck muscles, helps reduce the intensity and occurrence of migraine headaches.
  • Hyperhidrosis: Characterized by excessive sweating, hyperhidrosis can be managed with Botox injections, which inhibit sweat production in targeted areas.
  • Depression: There’s a link between facial expression and mood. Botox contributes to mood improvement by minimizing expressions that are commonly associated with negative emotions.

    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    HOW DO WRINKLES FORM?

    Dr. Schwarzburg explains that wrinkles form as part of the natural aging process, due to a combination of internal changes and external factors. 

    Initially, repeated muscle contractions and facial expressions lead to dynamic wrinkles – strong lines that only appear with movement. As collagen is lost in these repeatedly creased areas they evolve into static wrinkles that are visible when the face is at rest. 

    Prolonged sun exposure, lifestyle choices, and environmental stressors further exacerbate collagen loss turning temporary expressions into permanent features.

    HOW DOES BOTOX WORK TO REDUCE WRINKLES?

    Botox Cosmetic is derived from botulinum toxin type A, which temporarily interrupts the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that triggers muscle contractions. This action softens the intensity of facial expressions, such as frowning and squinting, which contribute to wrinkle formation. 

    With reduced muscle activity, the skin has a chance to smooth over time, encouraging the natural repair and replenishment of collagen in areas previously marked by creases. This process not only helps soften existing wrinkles but also prevents new ones from forming, making Botox an essential tool in the fight against the visible signs of aging.

    HOW QUICKLY CAN I SCHEDULE MY BOTOX APPOINTMENT AT SKINLY AESTHETICS IN NYC?

    Securing Botox appointment with Dr. Schwarzburg is both swift and straightforward. In most cases, you can schedule your session for the same or next day.

    WHO IS AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR BOTOX TREATMENT?

    The ideal candidate for Botox Cosmetic treatments is anyone over 18 looking for a non-surgical way to smooth out visible lines and wrinkles. If you’re in good health, have mild to moderate facial wrinkles that skincare products can’t fix, or want to soften expressive lines that make you look angry or upset, Botox could be the right choice. 

    It’s also important to have realistic expectations about what Botox can achieve, understanding that it offers significant and natural-looking improvements, but is not a replacement for plastic surgery.

    WHAT ARE THE KNOWN CONTRAINDICATIONS FOR BOTOX INJECTIONS?

    When considering Botox injections, understanding the contraindications is essential for ensuring the treatment’s safety and effectiveness. Here’s the list of common contraindications:

    • Muscle weakness in the treatment area, related to conditions like Bell’s palsy.
    • Neuromuscular disorders, such as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Myasthenia Gravis, and Lambert-Eaton Syndrome.
    • Pregnancy.
    • Allergy to Botox ingredients.
    • Active skin infection at the injection site.
    • History of keloid scarring.

    HOW TO PREPARE FOR BOTOX INJECTIONS AT SKINLY AESTHETICS?

    Preparing for Botox injections at Skinly Aesthetics involves a few key steps recommended by Dr. Schwarzburg to ensure optimal results and a smooth experience. 

    Firstly, it’s advised to avoid blood thinners such as aspirin, NSAIDs like Ibuprofen, Ginkgo Biloba, and Vitamin E for 3-5 days before your session to minimize bleeding and bruising. 

    Secondly, reducing alcohol consumption 2 days prior to your appointment will further decrease chances of bruising. 

    Lastly, taking two Tylenol pills about 30 minutes before your injections will help alleviate any discomfort during the injections. These preparatory measures contribute to a more comfortable treatment and enhance the overall effectiveness of your Botox results.

    WHAT IS BOTOX TREATMENT PROCESS AT SKINLY AESTHETICS?

    At Skinly Aesthetics, the Botox Cosmetic treatment process is meticulously designed to meet your specific aesthetic goals in a systematic manner. Your journey begins with a personalized consultation with Dr. Schwarzburg in his NYC office, where you’ll discuss your desired outcomes with Botox procedure. This is followed by taking medical photographs to document your aesthetic journey. 

    Next, your skin will be cleansed, and Dr. Schwarzburg will carefully mark the injection sites to ensure the Botox is distributed evenly for optimal results. The actual injection process involves using an ultra-fine needle to precisely administer Botox into the targeted muscles, a step described by many as producing a slight crunching sound. 

    After the injections, you’ll receive an ice pack to help minimize any swelling and be given detailed aftercare instructions to ensure the best possible outcome from your treatment.

    HOW LONG IS BOTOX PROCEDURE?

    Botox session at Skinly Aesthetics typically lasts 20-30 minutes from consultation to applying ice packs. However, the duration varies based on the number of treatment areas and units administered. 

    For instance, injecting 20 units of Botox for horizontal forehead lines may only take 20 minutes. However, administering 100 units for hand hyperhidrosis involves 20 minutes for numbing and another 20 minutes for the injections. 

    IS BOTOX SAFE?

    The safety and efficacy of Botox are well-established, with Botox Cosmetic by Allergan being approved for wrinkle treatment since 2002 and extensively documented as safe and effective in numerous clinical studies and FDA approvals. 

    However, the key to ensuring the safety of Botox injections lies in the expertise of the injector. Dr. Schwarzburg, who practices at Skinly Aesthetics in NYC, is a board-certified medical doctor recognized for his high level of skill, knowledge, and commitment to safety. His professional approach ensures that each Botox treatment is performed under the most stringent safety standards, providing clients with confidence and excellent results.

    WHAT IS BOTOX AFTERCARE?

    Botox aftercare is designed to be minimal, ensuring you can swiftly resume your daily routine. Dr. Schwarzburg’s key recommendations include avoiding any pressure on the treated area for the first 24 hours and pausing strenuous activities for a day to prevent the neurotoxin from migrating. It’s also advised to steer clear of excessive heat, like saunas and direct sunlight, to avoid Botox diffusion. 

    Remaining upright for the first few hours post-treatment helps prevent non-targeted spread. 

    Applying ice packs can alleviate swelling immediately after your session, and switching to warm compresses the next day can aid in the healing process. For any slight bruising, arnica cream is beneficial. 

    WHAT IS DOWNTIME AFTER BOTOX INJECTIONS?

    Botox Cosmetic is often dubbed the ‘lunchtime procedure’ as there’s virtually no downtime. Immediately post-procedure, you can jump back into your regular activities, albeit with a few simple precautions. A slight swelling or redness is typical but dissipates within an hour. Any minor bruising can be quickly camouflaged with makeup.

    WHAT ARE THE RISKS AND SIDE EFFECTS ASSOCIATED WITH BOTOX TREATMENT?

    Dr. Schwarzburg highlights several minor side effects that patients might experience post-treatment: 

    • Small, red, and itchy patches at the injection sites are due to minor skin irritation and typically resolve within 30 minutes. 
    • Slight bruising is a temporary cosmetic concern that can be concealed with makeup. 
    • Small raised bumps indicate water retention in the muscle, which the body absorbs within an hour. 
    • A sensation of tight skin might be felt for a few hours after the procedure, a result of the skin stretching due to the injected fluid. 
    • In rare instances, unintended diffusion of Botox can cause droopy eyelids or an asymmetrical facial appearance, often due to incorrect injection techniques or applying pressure to the treated areas too soon after the procedure. 
    • Some individuals might experience mild headaches, which generally subside within a couple of days. 
    • Although rare, allergic reactions to the components of Botox can occur, making it advisable for those with allergy concerns to discuss pre-treatment testing with their provider. 

    DO BOTOX INJECTIONS HURT?

    Most describe Botox injections as brief pinpricks. Dr. Schwarzburg uses ultra-fine nanoneedles to ensure a comfortable experience, making injections nearly imperceptible. 

    For very sensitive patients Dr. Schwarzburg uses a strong lidocaine numbing cream, coupled with an ice pack and nitrous oxide gas.

    WHEN WILL I SEE BOTOX RESULTS?

    Post-Botox, patience is essential. Initial results typically manifest between 1 to 5 days post-treatment, with the full effects becoming evident around 10-14 days after based on the number of units injected.

    HOW LONG DO BOTOX RESULTS LAST?

    The duration of wrinkle-smoothing effects typically ranges from 3 to 4 months, with subsequent maintenance treatments recommended every 4-6 months to sustain a youthful appearance. 

    Dr. Schwarzburg highlights that the longevity of Botox Cosmetic by Allergan varies based on several factors. The amount of Botox administered plays a crucial role; higher doses may extend the effects, whereas smaller doses could result in a shorter duration of visible improvements. 

    Additionally, individuals with expressive facial habits or those leading an active lifestyle may notice the results diminish sooner. Metabolic rate also influences Botox’s effectiveness – people with faster metabolism experience quicker fading of the treatment’s effects.

    HOW MUCH DOES BOTOX COST IN NYC?

    In New York, Botox prices generally range $250 to $900 per area or $10 to $30 per unit. The total cost of Botox depends on the number of units used, the number of treatment areas, whether your injector is a board certified doctor or a nurse, and if Botox is part of a combined therapy with other services. 

    At Skinly Aesthetics, Botox Cosmetic pricing for new clients is clear and straightforward. The following promotional rates apply exclusively to frown lines (11s), horizontal forehead lines, and crow’s feet: $499 for all three areas, $400 for two areas, and $250 for one area. For other areas, including the masseters, chin, and neck, the cost is $15 per unit of Botox, with additional discounts available for combination treatments.

    WHEN SHOULD I START GETTING BOTOX?

    Deciding when to start Botox treatments depends more on individual skin concerns and aesthetic goals rather than a specific age, according to Dr. Schwarzburg. 

    The right time to consider Botox Cosmetic may be when you notice wrinkles that remain visible even when your face is at rest or when makeup no longer conceals but rather highlights your lines.

    HOW MUCH BOTOX DO I NEED?

    Botox requirements vary from person to person due to differences in anatomy and individual cosmetic goals. On average, 20 units of Botox suffice for areas like the forehead, the glabellar region, or the crow’s feet. However, if your muscles are particularly strong, you might need 25-30 units per area, whereas those with weaker muscles might only need 10-15 units per area.

    IS BOTOX A GOOD CHOICE FOR ME?

    Absolutely! Botox Cosmetic by Allergan has been FDA-approved for over two decades and offers an excellent option for non-surgical wrinkle reduction if you look to uphold youthful and radiant skin. With its quick, almost pain-free administration, the results are consistently satisfying and enduring.

    WILL I LOOK NATURAL LOOK AFTER BOTOX INJECTIONS?

    Certainly! When Botox is applied with artistry and precision, the result is a natural appearance that retains genuine facial expressions, without wrinkles. It’s paramount to choose a board-certified doctor like Dr. Schwarzburg who is well-versed in minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. 

    Dr. Schwarzburg reminds us that what looks natural on one person might look overly done on another and a doctor’s experience is paramount to maintaining natural-looking Botox results.

    IS BOTOX THE SAME AS DYSPORT AND XEOMIN?

    Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, Daxxify, Myobloc, and Jeuveau are all types of neurotoxins used in aesthetic medicine to reduce the appearance of wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing facial muscles. Each brand has its unique formulation and specific applications, though they all work on the same basic principle of blocking nerve signals to muscles. Botox, developed by Allergan, was the first of these products to be approved by the FDA in 2002 and has since become synonymous with the procedure itself. It’s often preferred for its long track record of safety and effectiveness. While Botox is the original and most recognized brand, the other neurotoxins offer various benefits and options, allowing Dr. Schwarzburg to tailor treatments to meet individual patient needs.

    WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BOTOX AND DERMAL FILLERS?

    Botox and dermal fillers are both popular cosmetic treatments used to reduce the signs of aging, but they work in very different ways. Botox, specifically a neuromodulator, temporarily paralyzes the muscles that cause wrinkles, primarily in the forehead and around the eyes. It blocks the nerve signals that cause muscles to contract, effectively smoothing out expression lines and wrinkles. 

    On the other hand, dermal fillers do not affect muscle activity but instead add volume to the skin. Fillers are typically made from substances like hyaluronic acid and are used to plump up areas that have lost volume or elasticity, such as the cheeks, lips, and around the mouth. While Botox is excellent for expression lines, fillers are best for restoring volume and fullness, making them complementary treatments in the field of cosmetic enhancements.

    WHAT TREATMENTS PAIR WELL WITH BOTOX?

    Botox effectively targets facial muscles, mitigating the wrinkles stemming from excessive facial movements. To further optimize Botox results, Dr. Schwarzburg recommends the following complementary treatments:

    • When wrinkles are etched into the skin due to reduced collagen, they’re termed static. Botox might not always erase them, but dermal fillers like Restylane or Juvederm can fill them in from the inside.
    • Pairing Botox with treatments that boost collagen can enhance skin quality in the long run. Dr. Schwarzburg frequently integrates the Fraxel Dual laser, carbon peel laser facial, and multiple microneedling techniques such as Morpheus 8 radiofrequency microneedling, and Skin Boosters to further refine and firm the skin, promoting a consistently rejuvenated look.

    IS BOTOX COVERED BY INSURANCE?

    While insurance might cover Botox in certain situations, it’s typically restricted to FDA-approved medical uses in New York, such as TMJ, hyperhidrosis, migraines, and specific neuromuscular disorders.

    Cosmetic Botox applications are generally not insured. However, at Skinly Aesthetics, we accommodate FSA and HSA flexible spending cards and offer payment plan options.
