Botox & Skin Fillers

New York City Botox – Dr. Brian Brazzo in Manhattan

Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation

Botox

Botox is the most popular cosmetic treatment in this country and a favorite among women and men who are looking to improve their appearance. Botox has a long history in ophthalmology and was first used for spasms around the eyelids in the 1980s. It is still the most effective treatment for certain medical conditions. Many ophthalmologists and other specialists have used Botox to reduce wrinkles on the face, primarily around the eyes. Ophthalmic plastic surgeons are among the most experienced and highly trained doctors in the use of Botox for removing wrinkles, lines, and contour irregularities.

What are the benefits of Botox?

Botox

Botox is a very safe naturally occurring protein that causes muscles to relax. When placed around the wrinkles of the forehead and eyes, they help to smooth out the skin. The effect typically lasts three to four months. Physicians can reduce the frown lines between the brows, crow’s feet at the outer corners of the eyes, and horizontal lines on the forehead and eyebrow. Botox can also be used to shape the eyebrows and treat vertical lip lines.

How is Botox administered?

Botox Cosmetic

Dr. Brazzo, a trusted New York City ophthalmic plastic surgery provider, will review your specific medical history and concerns and discuss with you the best application of Botox. The medicine is injected with a very small needle directly under the skin. Topical anesthetic is first applied so the discomfort is minimal. The injections take only a few seconds. The results are not immediately effective, but become apparent after two or three days. Bruising rarely occurs and tends to fade quickly. Dr. Brazzo’s Botox New York City patients are extremely satisfied with the results.

New York City Facial Fillers – Restylane, Juvederm in Manhattan

Skin Fillers

Facial fillers are a popular option in nonsurgical facial rejuvenation. The two most commonly used fillers are Restylane and Juvederm. They are sometimes used alone but can also be used in conjunction with Botox. They are very safe methods of restoring lost volume under the surface of the skin. When they are placed in the correct position they help to reduce or eliminate wrinkles. They are most commonly used around the creases of the mouth and also to enhance the lips.

Discomfort is minimal, and results typically last nine to twelve months. These materials are most effective for reducing nasolabial folds, and wrinkles around the mouth and chin.
