Botox® is a muscle relaxing agent that is injected in precise locations to alter the effect of facial muscles in order to reduce furrows, wrinkles and lines. In the last few decades, Botox has become a household name and its use in cosmetic treatments has expanded beyond wrinkle treatment. At Timeless MedSpa NYC, we utilize Botox injections with many different cosmetic treatments to improve the appearance of the neck and face.
Botox is a neuromodulator that impacts the nerve signals that affect muscle contractions. The active ingredient is a type of botulinum toxin that is safe and effective at relaxing muscles. Botox has been used for medical treatment for many decades – it is used to manage muscle spasms and other treatments. Botox was FDA-approved for medical treatment in 1989, but it was not until 2002 that it was FDA-approved for cosmetic treatment of frown lines. Since then, Botox injections have been used for a wide variety of aesthetic enhancements with a high success rate.
Botox Cosmetic Treatments
There is a good reason Botox is so popular for cosmetic treatments. The procedure only takes 15-20 minutes, and the results can begin appearing in a few days for most applications. Botox results can last up to four months. There are few side effects, and the most common are from the injection, including slight swelling or bruising at the injection site. Some of the types of Botox treatments we offer at our UES clinic include:
Botox injections can relax the targeted muscles to change the appearance of the face and brows. From the infamous frown line treatment to smoothing neck cords and slimming the face, Botox can be used safely for a wide variety of facial cosmetic treatments.
