- So glad to have used your services & will continue.
- I have always appreciated the very professional service I have received from Dr. Antell and his staff. I can’t think of anything that would improve upon the experiences I have already had.
Top New York plastic surgeon Dr. Darrick Antell is board certified in plastic surgery, emphasizing aesthetic / cosmetic surgery. Dr. Antell regularly performs BOTOX® Cosmetic injections.
BOTOX® Cosmetic injections provide a temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between your brows.
BOTOX® Cosmetic, or botulinim toxin type A, is a diluted and purified material produced by the bacteria that makes botulism, a paralyzing neurotoxin.
BOTOX® Cosmetic was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 1989.
It is repeated muscle contractions from years of smiles and frowns and surprises that deepen facial lines. Once BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected, it seeks and finds just the right nerve endings that cause the contraction and halts the spark that contracts the muscle by blocking the release of a neurotransmitter. The nerve is then incapacitated by the BOTOX® until it starts to awaken again in about 4-6 months. Then another shot of BOTOX® Cosmetic restarts the process.
BOTOX® Cosmetic works best on the upper third of the face, on frown lines between the eyes, crow's feet and horizontal lines in the forehead. It temporarily freezes the nerves that go to work on the muscle.
BOTOX® Cosmetic can take up to 5-7 days to work, but once it kicks in the results are very dramatic.
BOTOX® Cosmetic can also be used to control severe palm or underarm sweating.
BOTOX® Cosmetic does not cause systemic internal side effects and patients can keep getting de-wrinkled the rest of their lives.
The price varies depending on how many areas are injected. Please call 212-988-4040 for current price information.
