Summer is here once again, which means time to hit the beach and show off some confident skin. If you are insecure with your skin you don’t have to hide inside during the beautiful summer days any longer. Stop lending your trust to expensive creams that only offer minimal change. With Dr. Darrick Antell’s non-invasive treatments, you can look younger, without going under the knife.
If those deep wrinkles are preventing you from enjoying your time at the beach, consider JUVEDERM® in NYC. JUVEDERM® in NYC is an injectable gel made of Hyaluronic Acid used to correct facial lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic Acid, a natural sugar that retains water, is found in all living organisms, making it perfectly safe and biocompatible. JUVEDERM® utilizes crossed linked gel, resulting in a natural, smoother, longer lasting look. Pump up the volume, and your confidence, by adding life to your drooping facial folds and wrinkles!
If the winter blues have left you with deep frown lines, consider BOTOX® Cosmetic in NY. Stop covering up those wrinkles with make-up that will just wash off in the pool and run into fine lines, making you appear older. BOTOX®, a diluted and purified bacterium that works to relax neurotoxins in the skin, works best on the upper third of the face, on frown lines between the eyes, crow’s feet, and horizontal lines in the forehead. Get your treatments in before the sun does any more damage to your skin. Skin shows signs of aging from sun-exposure, laughing, squinting, and even smiling; creating deep-set wrinkles, but there is no reason why that should stop you from looking your best this summer.
Rediscover your youth with these safe, healthy treatments during this Summer of Non-Invasive Treatments! Dr. Darrick Antell M.D, F.A.C.S and his staff welcome any questions or concerns you may have, and would love to go over treatment options that meet your needs, be it JUVEDERM® in NYC or BOTOX® Cosmetic in NY.

The rays of the sun can become intense during the spring and summer months. After years of frowning and squinting when the sun reflects harshly into your eyes, your skin loses its elasticity and ability to relax smoothly. Dr. Darrick Antell provides a cosmetic solution to smooth the wrinkles that form between your eyes, horizontal forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet at the outer corners of your eyes. BOTOX® Cosmetic in New York City can relax your facial muscles, so you can enjoy both the coming warmth this spring and younger-looking skin.
BOTOX® Cosmetic in NY is a cosmetic injectable that directly relaxes your muscles which form wrinkles and facial folds. The treatment itself only takes ten to fifteen minutes and can be performed in Dr. Antell’s New York office. Although BOTOX® Cosmetic in NYC takes approximately 5 to 7 days to produce visible results, the results are very dramatic. Years of frowning and squinting can be smoothed with only one treatment. These results will last about four to six months. Once results begin to fade, patients can receive follow-up, maintenance treatments as necessary.
BOTOX® Cosmetic in New York City can also be used for more than just cosmetic purposes. This treatment may also lesson excessive palm and underarm sweating and eliminate or substantially reduce the frequency, length, and severity of migraines. Injections between the eyebrows, in the temples, and at the base of the head produce results at a 90 to 95% success rate to completely eliminate or substantially reduce migraines. Patients will need to be examined to determine the location of the migraine and whether you are a candidate for either BOTOX® in NYC or another injectable which produces similar results, Dysport®.

I know I’ve said it before, but BOTOX ® really is the new aspirin. In early October Allergan (makers of BOTOX®) announced that the FDA approved BOTOX ® for use in treating chronic migraine patients (defined as 15 or more migraine days a month). Many patients are eager to try a new treatment because in addition to pain they typically experience dizziness, nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light and noise, and sometimes even vomiting. Now that the drug is approved, Allergan is free to market BOTOX as a treatment for migraines (even though it has been used off label for this purpose since 1992), leading some analysts to predict that its therapeutic use will eclipse the cosmetic. Of course, this will also depend on whether insurance companies will cover the treatment.
Just for some background, BOTOX ® is produced by purifying proteins from the bacteria that causes botulism (an illness mainly characterized by paralysis). The cause of some migraines is thought to be pressure on nerves in the neck and head from muscle use. BOTOX ® is used to treat migraines by injecting the frowning muscles found in the forehead, chewing muscles in the temple and others in the neck and shoulders. This leads to relaxation of the muscles, as well as a decreased muscle volume, relieving pressure on the nerve. As an added bonus these patients will have fewer wrinkles. The treatment will wear off and need to be re-administered approximately every 3 to 6 months.
It is yet to be seen whether BOTOX ® treatments will be covered by insurance companies for this approved use, so a recurring out of pocket treatment may be cost prohibitive for some patients. For those seeking an alternative, muscle pressure may also be relieved surgically. Nerves in the forehead run through a tight ring of muscular tissue that can be released via an incision hidden behind the hairline or in an upper eyelid crease to decrease pressure on the nerve (this is actually similar to the procedure performed in the wrist to treat carpal tunnel syndrome). In recent studies the treatment was successful in about 92% of the cases (35% reported elimination of the pain, 57% experienced significant reduction in headache episodes).

Botox® is the new aspirin! Developed from bacteria secretions, Botox® takes affect by relaxing muscle tissue. The most famous application is cosmetic, as relaxed facial muscles do not produce wrinkles and folds. Did you know, however, that physicians have found many more uses?
Perhaps the most interesting use of Botox® is in the treatment of migraines. Migraines are thought to be caused by pressure on a nerve in the forehead. When muscles used to make facial expressions are overworked (such as when you furrow your brow too much) they become enlarged and put pressure on the nerve. Typical treatments are anti-inflammatories such as Ibuprofen to decrease pressure on the nerve. When they do not work, Botox® can be used to relax the muscle, reduce its size and take pressure off the nerve. For more information please visit our website at www.migrainesolutionsnyc.com
In recent studies Botox® has also been shown to be effective in the treatment of excessive sweating. Injections given in the under arm prevented sweating for up to 6-7 months (longer than facial injections last). They are confident that similar procedures can be used on the hands feet and face, so no need to fear unsightly stains during the blazing hot summer months!
