  • 20 minutes from start to finish
  • Painless with no downtime
  • Natural results that last 3-4 months

FAST FACTS:

About: Botox is a neurotoxin derived from the bacteria clostridium botulinum and is used for both cosmetic and medical purposes. It works as a muscle relaxer and paralyzes the muscles in which it is injected. Botox injections reduce, prevent, and eliminate fine lines and wrinkles formed by strong facial expressions.

Safety: Botox treatments are FDA approved and have limited risks and side effects. Common side effects include redness, bruising, and swelling, all of which subside within 1 – 5 days post-treatment. Botox is not permanent, meaning that any inadvertent side effects or undesired results will not last. Botox, whether for medical or cosmetic use, should always be discussed with a board-certified physician.

Convenience: Botox is nicknamed “lunch break procedure” due to its quick and easy nature. Most Botox treatments take 10 to 20 minutes.

Cost: The cost of Botox treatment in NYC can range anywhere from $400 to $2000 depending on the area treated, the number of units needed, facial anatomy and the desired results.

Efficacy: Multiple studies over decades demonstrated supreme outcomes after Botox injections, and its use for cosmetic purposes continues to yield consistent and reproducible results. It is effective for treating fine lines or more severe frown lines, wrinkles, and a variety of medical conditions including TMJ, hyperhidrosis, and more.

WHAT IS BOTOX AND HOW DOES IT WORK?

Botox is a purified medication derived from botulinum toxin type A and produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.

Facial wrinkles are formed when repetitive muscular movement along predetermined lines of contraction in the skin leads to collagen loss and development of visible lines manifested as horizontal or vertical wrinkles, also known as rhytids.

The wrinkles are further defined as either dynamic or static:

  • Dynamic type is apparent during facial expressions, e.g. frowning or squinting, and completely disappears at rest;
  • Static type is visualized even when the face is resting, which is a direct sign that collagen was lost along the lines of muscular contractions. This type gets the most attention and concerns from the patients.

Botox causes underlying muscles to relax and allows the dermal layer in the skin to regenerate lost collagen, which is an important building block for our skin to maintain its laxity and turgor. The aging process together with photodamage from sun exposure lead to a reduction of collagen and elastin as our skin is unable to repair itself as well, making it more susceptible to the formation of wrinkles.

Botox acts as a neuromodulator, or buffer to neurotransmitters, inhibiting the signal sent by the nerves to the muscles at the neuromuscular junction by blocking the release of acetylcholine from presynaptic motor neurons. This causes temporary paralysis of the injected muscle, allowing the muscle to relax, leading to reduction, prevention, and elimination of fine lines and wrinkles.

Maintaining a youthful appearance has always been important, especially now, as social media has grown to a near necessity for many of us. Botox was first developed and used to treat muscle spasms around the eyes. Due to its cosmetic benefits, indications, and popularity Botox has now become a household name for both celebrities and the general population alike. Botox is popular due to its transformative effects and minimally invasive nature. It has many aesthetic benefits and is FDA-approved for several medical conditions such as hyperhidrosis, migraines, and TMJ. The results are also not permanent, which is appealing to many, especially first-time patients.

A common question that is asked is whether botox is preventative? Botox prevents wrinkles from forming, as it restricts muscle contractions that are typically responsible for the development of wrinkles. For this reason, the toxin is popular for both mature and younger patients alike.

WHAT AREAS CAN YOU GET BOTOX INJECTIONS FOR COSMETIC PURPOSES?

Botox is useful in many different treatment areas, all of which Dr. Schwarzburg performs at his private medical office on the Upper East Side of Manhattan:

  • Forehead lines, worry lines, or horizontal lines
    The primary muscle in the forehead is the frontalis muscle. When we make worried expressions or raise eyebrows, horizontal forehead lines begin to form. When Botulinum toxin is injected into the frontalis muscle, these lines can be eliminated, reduced, and prevented.
  • Glabella lines or 11s
    The deep line between your eyebrows often called the 11s line or severe frown line can form when the corrugator muscle is contracted. These lines are one of the most common treatment areas for Botox injections as they make patients look less angry and soften the look.
  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
    When we squint or smile, we form lines around our eyes, which can be numbed with Botox.
  • Neck lines or platysmal bands
    Botulinum toxin can be used to reduce the appearance of both horizontal lines and vertical protruding bands around the neck. Botox neck lift, also known as “Nefertiti lift”, is the procedure in which Botox is injected into the cords of platysmal bands to slow down the progression of turkey neck, or loose skin as we age.
  • Perioral lines
    • Smoker’s lines form when there’s excessive lip pouting or due to actual smoking with Botox injections reducing the tension in the orbicularis oris muscle.
    • Botox can also gently lift the corners of the mouth to reduce downward, depressed appearing smiles.
  • Gummy smile
    Gummy smile is an aesthetically unpleasing look when teeth and gums are disproportionately exposed while smiling. This appearance is improved with Botox injections in the zygomaticus major and minor, levator labii superioris, and levator anguli oris muscles.
  • Lip flip
    Botox lip flip involves 4 to 10 units of neuromodulator in the superior orbicularis oris muscle to release the puckering of the upper lip. This results in the top lip “flipping” upward, making it appear fuller. For more dramatic results you should consider lip filler injection.
  • Pau d’orange of the chin
    A dimpled chin appearance is secondary to a tense mentalis muscle, which Botulinum toxin relaxes, leading to improvement in the texture and softening of the chin dimpling.
  • Brow lift
    Targeted Botox placement into the forehead lines produces an eyebrow lift, opening the eyes and creating a more “awake” look.
  • Botox Masseter Reduction for Facial Slimming
    Botox masseter injections slim the face non-surgically and make the jaw appear less square or bulky. This is also done for medical purposes, to relax the masseter muscle and relieve TMJ pressure and teeth grinding.
  • Baby Botox
    Baby Botox involves the injection of over-diluted neurotoxin to preserve the full range of facial expressions and avoid a fully frozen face. Micro-botox treatment allows achieving the most natural-looking result with botulinum toxin therapy

WHAT MEDICAL CONDITIONS DOES BOTOX TREAT?

Botox is FDA approved to treat the following medical conditions:

  • TMJ
    Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ) are common and are often accompanied by tightness in the jaw, clenching, grinding teeth, headaches, and more. Botox injected into the masseter muscle causes relief of these symptoms as the masseter is partially disabled.
  • Migraine headaches
    Botulinum toxin is FDA approved to treat migraines. The primary areas in which toxin is injected to treat chronic migraines include the forehead, scalp, neck, and shoulders.
  • Excessive Sweating
    Botox is used to reduce sweating (hyperhidrosis) in the underarms, hands, and feet as it incapacitates the activity of sweat glands.
  • Depression
    Botox can alleviate the symptoms of depression when injected in the face, because it limits negative facial expressions, making many patients feel happier.
  • Cervical Dystonia
    Cervical Dystonia is a neurological muscle disorder causing neck pain and muscle spasms in the head and neck. This can be treated using Botox injections.
  • Overactive bladder or Urinary Incontinence
    Botox is used in adults with urinary urgency and urinary incontinence.
  • Blepharospasm
    Botox can treat Blepharospasm, which is characterized by involuntary eyelid twitching and small muscle spasms around the eyes.
  • Strabismus
    Strabismus can be treated with Botox injections. It is a condition where both eyes can not get aligned in the same direction.
  • Contractures in patients with cerebral palsy (CP)
    Cerebral palsy patients aged 2 to 17 years often have muscular contractures and spasticity of the arms and legs, which can be diminished using Botox injections.

COSMETIC VS MEDICAL APPLICATIONS OF BOTOX

Botox NYC is known to treat wrinkles for facial rejuvenation but is also frequently used as a medical treatment for chronic migraines, excessive sweating, and muscle spasms reduction.

Other cosmetic injectable neurotoxins on the market include Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeaveau, and function like Botox treatments, with slightly different biochemical compositions and properties. Botox is the best known and most commonly used product to treat anything from wrinkles to hyperhidrosis.

WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR BOTOX?

An ideal candidate for Botox is someone who wants to prevent or eliminate fine lines and facial wrinkles, slim the jawline, reduce the severity of a gummy smile, or improve the dimpling in the chin. 

Botox is also beneficial for people with medical conditions including TMJ, hyperhidrosis, and chronic migraines.

Botox should be avoided in pregnant women, during active skin infection, in patients affected by muscular disorders such as myasthenia gravis, ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease, or those with hypersensitivity to any botulinum toxin ingredient. You should also let your provider know if you are taking any prescription medications which could potentially interact with your treatment.

In rare cases, patients can develop antibodies to Botulinum toxin type A leaving them with limited results regardless of the number of units injected. In this case, Xeomin, a similar neurotoxin, is injected, as it is less likely to develop antibodies.

WHAT ARE BOTOX PRECAUTIONS AND HOW DO I PREPARE FOR THEM?

Blood-thinning medications such as aspirin, NSAIDs (ibuprofen), or Plavix are best to avoid 5 days before your procedure to limit bleeding and bruising. Alcohol consumption should be limited for 24 hours prior to your treatment to diminish the bleeding and additional bruising. Taking two Tylenols before your Botox appointment will alleviate discomfort, and having a small meal prior to the procedure will help avoid fainting or dizziness. Applying the numbing cream a few minutes before your treatment will lessen painful stimuli.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING MY BOTOX APPOINTMENT?

You will first have a consultation with Dr. Schwarzburg to discuss treatment goals, areas to address, and your medical history. Photos of you making various facial expressions will be taken to establish the number of units needed to achieve your desired results.

Once the treatment plan and number of units are confirmed, the treatment area is sterilized and marked with a skin-safe marker.

Botox is injected through an ultra-fine hollow insulin needle. You may experience some discomfort, often described as a pinching or prickling sensation. Once finished, you will receive an ice pack to reduce any swelling.

You will be provided with instructions to follow to ensure that Botox settles correctly without side effects.

Overall, your appointment will last approximately 30 minutes, with a 10 – 20 minute treatment time, depending on the size of the treatment area and the number of units administered.

HOW LONG IS A BOTOX PROCEDURE?

Overall, your appointment will last approximately 30 minutes, with a 10 – 20 minute treatment time, depending on the size of the treatment area and number of units administered.

ARE THERE ANY RISKS OR SIDE EFFECTS ASSOCIATED WITH BOTOX TREATMENT?

Common side effects are minimal when it comes to Botox injections. Risks to be aware of before scheduling your Botox appointment include:

Minimal to Mild:

  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Skin tightness
  • Skin irritation

Moderate to Severe:

  • Non-target diffusion (droopy eyelids, asymmetry, frozen forehead, limited facial movement)
  • Headaches
  • Muscle weakness
  • Allergic reaction
  • Respiratory problems

A small percentage of patients may experience mild headaches on the first day of their botox injections, but they commonly resolve within 24 hours.

Muscle weakness and numbness are expected after treatment since it paralyzes the muscles, which is something you will get accustomed to.

WHAT IS DOWNTIME AFTER BOTOX INJECTIONS?

Social downtime – Immediately visible clues after botox injections may include minor bruising, swelling, and redness, which are transient in nature and resolve in 24 hours. Applying ice packs to the treated areas facilitates the resolution of these minor inconveniences, and their appearance is effectively minimized with strategically applied facial makeup.

Medical downtime – There is no medical downtime associated with Botox treatment. In some instances, you may need to stop intense workouts for 24 hours.

WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER BOTOX INCLUDING POST-CARE INSTRUCTIONS

After your Botox appointment, you may have some mild swelling, redness, itching, or tightness in the treated area. These unpleasant sensations can be minimized using an ice pack. If you bruise, you can apply a warm compress and arnica gel the day after your session.

After your treatment, you should avoid physical activity, touching the treatment area, and direct heat for 24 hours. Makeup after Botox injections can be applied as soon as 30 minutes after the procedure. To minimize bruising apply an ice pack in the first 24 hours and a warm compress after 24 hours.

HOW MUCH DOES BOTOX COST?

When Botox is priced per unit administered, the cost ranges from $10 to $25 per 1 unit of Botox. It takes on average 20 units per area, so it will cost you $200 to $500 for that region. While 20 units are the average, it does not apply to everyone. For example, one person may only need 10 units in their crow’s feet for optimal results, while another may need 30 units for the same result, in which case the same treatment area could be three times the price for the other person.

When Botox is priced by area treated, the cost ranges from $300 – $600 for 1 area and you get as few or as many units needed to reach the desired effect. If you get 3 areas treated you could pay anywhere from $900 to $1800.

The cost of your Botox treatment also depends on where you are getting your treatment. If you see Dr. Schwarzburg, who is the best botox doctor in NYC, the price may be higher than in other places, however, when it comes to getting medical procedures, it’s best to invest in quality work rather than to save on something that could alter your face. A set price for Botox is rare and there are often a variety of factors that go into the pricing during your treatment.

WHO INVENTED BOTOX?

Botox was invented in 1989 by dermatologist Alan Scott who sold the rights to pharmaceutical company Allergan in 1991. Today, Botox is extremely popular, and finding a good botox clinic or med spa has become much easier in larger metropolitan regions, such as New York. This popular neurotoxin has become ubiquitous and is used by not only celebrities but everyone from your mother to your neighbors.

WHERE DOES BOTOX COME FROM?

Botox is manufactured by pharmaceutical company Allergan and new botox is distributed to botox clinics, such as Skinly Aesthetics. It is injected by Dr. Schwarzburg, MD, who is one of the best botox and dermal fillers injectors in New York City. While Botox is the most popular neurotoxin, there are other neurotoxins that can be used interchangeably with it, such as Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau, with slightly different chemical compositions.

IS BOTOX THE SAME SUBSTANCE AS THE DEADLY BOTULINUM TOXIN?

Botulinum toxin is produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum and is deadly in its pure form. For reference, 100 units of Botox (onabotulinum toxin A) contain only 0.73 nanograms of toxin. It is very much diluted compared to pure botulinum toxin.

BOTOX TREATMENT VS. PLASTIC SURGERY

Botox is a minimally invasive injectable treatment that can relax certain facial muscles to accomplish similar results to those accomplished by more invasive plastic surgery. However, in some cases, plastic surgery is the better option, for example when your goal is to eliminate excessive loose skin. Botox will not lift loose and sagging skin and is primarily meant for people who are looking for a natural appearance and are deemed an appropriate candidate by their provider.

WHAT OTHER TREATMENTS CAN COMPLEMENT BOTULINUM TOXIN?

Botox allows superficial wrinkles to recover and fill with your body’s own collagen. Other procedures that can be used to boost collagen production to improve the appearance of fine lines and facial wrinkles include Secret RF Microneedling and Fraxel laser. These modalities create controlled thermal damage to the skin, causing it to produce collagen and elastin to repair itself for more rejuvenated skin. The combination of neurotoxin injections and collagen-stimulating devices provides the best skincare possible.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BOTOX AND FILLERS?

Botox aesthetic is used to freeze the muscles in which it is injected and dermal fillers are used to add and replenish tissue volume. In order to bring fine lines and facial wrinkles under control, botulinum toxin is needed to restrict muscle activity in the area first to halt the process of wrinkle formation.

Dermal fillers like Juvederm or Restylane on the other hand come into play when your body’s natural collagen regeneration has been exhausted. Hyaluronic acid-based bioimplants instantaneously volumize targeted areas for a fresh and rested look.

For instance, many think that botox eliminates under-eye circles. Dark circles under the eyes are caused by fat loss in the infraorbital area and require an under eye filler to fix it. Botox and fillers do complement each other, but are very different and serve different purposes.

CAN YOU DO MICRONEEDLING OR FACIAL AFTER BOTOX?

If you want to get a microneedling treatment, it is best to wait one week after receiving your Botox injections so that it can properly settle. You shouldn’t rub or touch the treatment area because the neuromodulator can shift to a different area, causing asymmetry and in the worst cases eyelid ptosis.

You can also get the Aquagold treatment, which happens to contain the neurotoxin itself, or the hydrafacial, designed for hydration.

HOW MUCH BOTOX WILL I NEED?

The number of units needed depends on where you get injected, how active your muscles are, when your last treatment was, and your desired look. An average patient usually needs 20 units per 1 area, for example, glabella complex or crow’s feet. If you have stronger muscles you may need more units and vice versa. During your cosmetic consultation, these details will be taken into consideration by Dr. Schwarzburg, who will establish the perfect number of Botox units for your unique goals.

DOES BOTOX HURT?

While Botox can only be delivered through a needle injection, most people tolerate the injection process without any anesthesia. Sometimes a topical numbing cream or ice pack is applied to alleviate unpleasant sensations. Botox injections feel like pinching or poking sensations. However, the pain lasts no longer than the injection itself, making the treatment overall tolerable.

WHEN WILL I SEE MY BOTOX RESULTS?

It takes 3 – 5 days to start seeing your botox results and 10 days to see the final results. Botox acts at a neuromuscular junction by inhibiting the release of acetylcholine from presynaptic motor neurons, and it takes several days for the nerve signals to stop propagating.

HOW LONG DO RESULTS LAST?

Botox results generally last 3 to 4 months. Many patients get a touch-up before the effects are gone to remain wrinkle-free.

The longevity of your results can vary depending on a multitude of factors including:

  • The number of units administered: The duration increases with a greater number of units;
  • The strength of your facial muscles: If you naturally have weak facial musculature, then your Botox results will likely last longer;
  • The intervals between Botox treatments: If you get regular touch-ups, your results will be longer maintained.
  • Metabolic response to treatment: Some patients metabolize Botox quicker than others. If you work out a lot, for example, your results will fade sooner than someone who doesn’t exercise.

IS BOTOX PERMANENT?

Botox injections are temporary and last on average 3 – 4 months. While some people respond well to the treatment, leaving them with 4-month results, others may lose the effects after 2 – 3 months. The duration of the effects applies to the treatment itself and to negative side effects, should you have experienced any.

WHAT IS THE BEST AGE TO START BOTOX INJECTIONS?

The age at which you pursue your first botox treatment depends on the strength of your facial muscles and the severity of your wrinkles. While some patients in their twenties may be developing evident signs of aging, fine lines, and wrinkles, others in their thirties may not. Whether you are looking for a preventative measure or a reduction in already existing fine lines and wrinkles, botox can be used on anyone, regardless of their age.

HOW WILL I LOOK BEFORE AND AFTER BOTOX? WILL BOTOX BEFORE AND AFTER RESULTS LOOK NATURAL?

Before, you will have fine lines and wrinkles and dramatic facial expressions that enhance them. After your botox aesthetic treatment, you will have more youthful-looking skin. Many people worry friends and colleagues will know they got the treatment; however, when skillfully applied it brings out your natural beauty, without showing evidence of any cosmetic treatment or plastic surgery. Your fine lines, wrinkles, and rhytids will be reduced or even eliminated, and further development of such signs of aging prevented.

WILL MY BOTOX LOOK NATURAL?

A physician must possess a critical and artistic eye to produce natural outcomes.

Naturally appearing botox injections are always a result of a complete understanding of your individual anatomical structure and functional anatomy.

New patients must be educated about botox to avoid unrealistic expectations and dissatisfaction with service, which is why credentials and best experience of your provider matter.

DOES BOTOX HELP ROSACEA?

In recent studies, it was found that botox can be used to treat redness and tenderness on the surface of their skin caused by rosacea, as botulinum toxin may interfere with the ability of blood vessels to dilate.

CAN YOU DO BOTOX UNDER YOUR EYES?

Because the area around the eyes is so delicate, many patients prefer micro-botox injections around the eyes. Regardless, both conventional-dose and tiny doses are FDA approved and can be injected into the orbicularis oculi muscle around the eyes to treat crow’s feet.

DOES BOTOX MAKE YOU LOOK OLDER ONCE YOU START?

Botox does not make you look older. Once your first botox treatment wears off, your face will go back to the point in which it started. Because it prevents you from developing lines and wrinkles, you will simply be delaying the aging process.

DO YOU HAVE TO KEEP GETTING BOTOX AFTER YOU START?

You do not have to keep getting botox after you start. Once the toxin wears off, you will go back to your original state. Botox delays the aging process, but does not have any effect on you once it has been metabolized.

I STILL SEE WRINKLES AFTER INJECTIONS. WHAT HAPPENED?

If the treatment is settled and the muscles are frozen but you still see lines, your skin has lost its ability to recover and replace lost collagen. Even though botox will prevent further wrinkling, you will need a dermal filler or collagen-stimulating therapies to remain wrinkle free.

In rare cases, immunity to Botox injections is possible, and your body will not respond to the treatment at all. Here, your physician may try a different neuromodulator, such as Dysport, Xeomin, or Jeaveau.

CAN I DRINK ALCOHOL BEFORE OR AFTER BOTOX TREATMENT?

A common question is whether it is okay to drink alcohol before and after your botox treatment.

It is advised to forgo alcohol consumption before you get your treatment, as alcohol acts as a blood thinner, causing additional and unnecessary bleeding and bruising. Alcohol consumption immediately after botox injections may affect the efficacy of the treatment, however, it is not commonly reported. If you want to play it safe, save drinking for the day following your treatment.

IS GETTING DISCOUNTED BOTOX WITH ONLINE COUPONS WORTH IT?

Cosmetic treatments can add up to a total that may not always be within everyone’s budget. However, it is important to look out for Botox discounts that seem “too good to be true”. Unfortunately, many clinics offer very generous deals that come with their own price: diluted or low-strength medication with minimal or no results.

While diluted botulinum toxin won’t actually harm you, it will not be full strength, meaning that you will be getting a very low dose of the medication. While it may be hard to turn down a Botox coupon deal, keep in mind that a low Botox price may lead to inferior outcomes.

WHERE TO FIND CHEAP BOTOX?

Depending on how many units are needed to cover your treatment, cosmetic costs can add up and aren’t always favorable to one’s budget. While there are tempting deals and discounts found online, keep in mind that cheap Botox isn’t always good botox. In many cases, the botulinum toxin is advertised at a discounted rate to lure patients in, only for them to receive a diluted version of the medicine, leading to unsatisfactory results.

However, Botox can still be affordable, since a lot of practices bundle neurotoxin treatments with other procedures and offer subscription models to lower its cost.

Additionally, the cost of your treatment primarily depends on the number of units, and the frequency of your treatments. If you schedule regular appointments, you will likely require fewer units than someone who only comes in once a year, meaning that each session will be lower in cost than one annual treatment that may require many more additional injections.

IS BOTOX COVERED BY INSURANCE?

Botox can be covered by insurance for medical conditions such as TMJ, hyperhidrosis, or chronic migraines, which must be diagnosed by a board-certified physician, and approved by the insurance company in order to be covered.

If your treatment is cosmetic, it may not be covered by insurance.

IS BOTOX SAFE?

Botox New York is FDA approved and has a limited number of possible risks, side effects, and complications. Most of them are only temporary and treatable. If you do have any concerns after your Botox treatment, be sure to contact your physician to confirm that everything is healing properly.

IS BOTOX BAD FOR YOU?

Botox is FDA approved as a safe and effective treatment to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles. Once the product wears off, your muscles will return to their original state, without any consequences.

WHAT ARE THE PROS AND CONS?

Pros:

  • FDA approved for the treatment of fine to moderate wrinkles
  • Minimally invasive with virtually no pain
  • Quick and convenient with no downtime
  • Natural-looking results

Cons:

  • Not permanent
  • Doesn’t treat deep lines and folds or replace volume loss
  • Doesn’t replace plastic surgery
  • Requires regular touch-ups

THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE GETTING BOTOX TREATMENT

Botox is known for its low risk for side effects and complications. However, you should keep in mind that there is a possibility of bruising, swelling, and more serious complications including infection.

Before scheduling an appointment, it’s best to conduct thorough research of your provider and confirm that the person injecting you is a board-certified physician with experience and extensive medical knowledge to avoid unnecessary risks and side effects. If injected poorly, you may end up with undesired and temporarily irreversible results that may take months to wear off to your initial baseline.

TAKEAWAY

Botox is a minimally invasive procedure to treat both cosmetic and medical concerns. It is mostly known to eliminate, reduce, and prevent fine lines and wrinkles, but can also be used to slim or enhance certain areas of the face. Common medical conditions treated with the neurotoxin include TMJ, hyperhidrosis, and chronic migraines.

When scheduling an appointment, be sure to consult with a board-certified cosmetic surgeon to confirm that it is the right option for you and ensure that you get the best results.
