Botox Skin Treatment


Botox has become a popular alternative for those looking to reverse the signs of facial aging without cosmetic surgery. Since the FDA first approved the injections, use of the procedure has continued to grow with millions of injections safely performed by dermatologist every year. At Park Avenue Dermatology, our doctors routinely prescribe Botox injections to help patients attain his or her cosmetic goals for facial rejuvenation. After all, wouldn’t you like to look years younger if given the chance? Botox provides an affordable aesthetic solution.

As we age, our skin naturally forms and retains fine lines, wrinkles and folds. The same muscles that you have used all of your life to smile, frown, squint or concentrate can contract and linger even after your facial muscles are at rest. This can cause someone to look much older than they really are. Botox injections work by blocking the nerve impulses to the muscles used for facial expressions. This temporary weakening of the facial muscles provides noticeable improvement for wrinkles, frown lines, forehead creases and crow’s feet to restore a very natural, more youthful appearance.

There a numerous causes of facial aging. Some are natural occurrences, such as sun damage or squinting, while others relate to lifestyle choices, such as smoking; but Botox treatments can reduce frown lines and wrinkles for a smoother, healthier-looking face. This is accomplished by selecting injection points where the facial muscles contract and not on the wrinkle itself. Treatments are quick and the aesthetic results are immediate. To reduce your risks of infection or improper dosing, you should always have any cosmetic injection performed at a doctor’s office.

A Botox injection is a minimally-invasive aesthetic procedure that does not require the use of an anesthesia and there is no down time for recovery. The end results are instantly visible but the treatment does not make it look like you just had a cosmetic procedure. Instead, there is a very natural smoothing of the facial skin especially on the forehead and around the eyes. By relaxing the at-rest tone of your facial muscles, our dermatologist can restore the natural appearance of your face.
