Common questions about Botox cosmetic:

Will I still be able to make facial expressions?

Although you will see marked improvement, a treatment with Botox Cosmetic doesn’t make you look like you’ve “had work done.”  The muscle activity that causes frown lines is reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.

How soon will I see a difference?

You can expect to see results within days after your treatment, and the appearance of the treated area may continue to improve over the next 10-14 days.

How do I know if Botox is right for me?

If you are between the ages of 18-65 with moderate to severe frown lines, you may be a candidate for Botox.  You can schedule a free consultation to find out if Botox is right for you, 212-772-2100.
