What you need to know about Botox

What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable neuromodulator, made from botulinum toxin, used to temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the muscles, which causes them to relax and soften. Botox has been approved by the FDA for use in cosmetic procedures since 2002 and is now one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments available.

Botox can be used to treat a variety of areas on the face including crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines), and even lip lines. It can also be used to lift sagging brows, create a more defined jawline, or even reduce excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis).

At New York Liposuction Center, our Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Arnold Breitbart has extensive experience with administering Botox injections. He will work with you to determine if Botox is right for you and develop a personalized treatment plan that will help you achieve your aesthetic goals safely and effectively.

What Can Botox Be Used For?

Botox is a popular cosmetic treatment used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It is an injectable form of botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. At New York Liposuction Center, our Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Arnold Breitbart has extensive experience performing Botox injections for patients in the Manhasset and Park Avenue areas.

Uses for Botox

Botox can be used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles on the face, neck, and forehead. It can also be used to treat crow’s feet around the eyes, as well as frown lines between the eyebrows. Additionally, Botox can be used to treat sagging skin on the chin or jawline, excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), and migraine headaches.

Benefits of Botox

The benefits of Botox include a smoother complexion with fewer wrinkles and lines. This can help you look younger and more refreshed without resorting to surgery or other invasive procedures. Additionally, Botox can provide relief from excessive sweating and migraine headaches. The effects are usually temporary, but they can last up to six months depending on your body’s metabolism.

What kind of results can you expect from Botox?

Botox is a popular and effective cosmetic treatment that helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles in the face, which causes them to relax and smooth out the skin. The effects of Botox typically last three to four months, although some people may see longer-lasting results.

Immediate Results

The effects of Botox are usually visible within a few days after treatment, although it may take up to two weeks for the full effects to be seen. You will likely notice a reduction in wrinkles and fine lines on your face, as well as a more youthful appearance. The results of Botox can last anywhere from three to four months, depending on your individual body chemistry.

Long-Term Results

With repeated treatments, you may begin to notice longer-lasting results. This is because Botox helps to train your facial muscles over time so they remain relaxed even without injections. Additionally, regular treatments can help to prevent new wrinkles from forming, giving you a more youthful look that lasts longer than with one-time treatments alone.

Side Effects

Although Botox is generally considered safe when administered by an experienced professional, there are some potential side effects that you should be aware of before undergoing treatment. These include temporary bruising or swelling at the injection site, headache, nausea, flu-like symptoms, and drooping eyelids or eyebrows. If you experience any of these symptoms after treatment, contact your doctor immediately for advice.

We understand how important it is for our patients to have realistic expectations about their botox treatment outcomes. Our board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Arnold Breitbart has extensive experience performing this procedure and will provide comprehensive guidance throughout the entire process so that you can achieve optimal results with minimal risk or discomfort.

What to Expect From Botox Injections During the Procedure

At New York Liposuction Center, we specialize in providing our patients with exceptional care and results. Our team of experienced professionals is committed to delivering the highest quality treatments when it comes to Botox injections.

The Consultation

Before receiving Botox injections, you will have a consultation with Dr. Breitbart. He will discuss your goals for treatment and determine the best approach for achieving them. During this time, he will also ask questions about your medical history and perform an examination of the area to be treated. This helps him ensure that Botox is safe and effective for you and that it can help you reach your desired result.

The Procedure

Once you are ready to move forward with treatment, Dr. Breitbart will begin by cleaning the area to be treated with an antiseptic solution. He will then inject small amounts of Botox into the targeted muscles using a very thin needle. The entire process usually takes less than 15 minutes and does not require any anesthesia or numbing agents.

Aftercare Instructions

Following your Botox injection, Dr. Breitbart will provide you with aftercare instructions that should be followed closely in order to ensure optimal results and reduce your risk of side effects or complications. These instructions may include avoiding certain activities such as strenuous exercise or exposure to heat or cold for a period of time following treatment. You may also be asked to refrain from rubbing or massaging the area where the injections were performed for a few days after treatment in order to prevent any spreading of the product into other areas.

At New York Liposuction Center, we strive to provide our patients with comprehensive care and excellent results from their botox treatments. Our experienced team is committed to helping you achieve your desired outcome safely and effectively through personalized treatments tailored specifically for you.

After the Procedure and Long Term Results

Immediately after the Botox procedure, you may experience some slight swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection site. These side effects should subside in a few days and will not affect the results of your treatment. The full effects of Botox can be seen within 2-3 days after treatment and can last up to 4 months.

Long-term Results

The long-term results of Botox depend on how many treatments you have had and how often you get them. Generally, patients who receive regular treatments every 3-4 months will have longer lasting results than those who only get one treatment. Over time, your muscles will become accustomed to the injections and require less frequent treatments to maintain their effects.

Other Med Spa Treatments to Consider

At the New York Liposuction Center, we offer a wide variety of med spa treatments in addition to Botox. Our board-certified plastic surgeon dr. arnold breitbart is highly experienced and knowledgeable in all types of aesthetic procedures, and can help you determine which treatment is best for you.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are injectable treatments that can help reduce wrinkles and restore volume to areas of the face such as the lips, cheeks, and jawline. They are made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that helps keep skin hydrated and plump. Dermal fillers can also be used to enhance facial features such as the nose or chin.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are another popular med spa treatment at our clinic. These treatments involve applying a chemical solution to the skin in order to exfoliate away dead skin cells and reveal brighter, more even-toned skin underneath. Chemical peels can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, sun damage, acne scars, and other signs of aging or discoloration.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing is another type of treatment offered at our clinic that can help improve the appearance of your skin by reducing wrinkles, improving texture, and evening out tone. Laser resurfacing works by using laser energy to remove layers of damaged skin and stimulate collagen production for smoother, firmer skin. This treatment is especially effective for treating sun damage or acne scars.


Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that uses tiny crystals to gently exfoliate away dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. This treatment helps improve texture and tone while also promoting healthy cell turnover for younger looking skin. Microdermabrasion is suitable for all skin types and can be used on any area of the body including the face, neck, chest, hands, arms, back, legs, and feet.

No matter what your aesthetic goals are, our team at New York Liposuction Center can help you find an appropriate med spa treatment plan tailored specifically to your needs. We invite you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Breitbart today so he can discuss your options with you in detail!
