How Does BOTOX Work?

BOTOX is a safe and reliable injectable neurotoxin that blocks the actions of specific nerves. For wrinkles, this means relaxing the muscles that crease or pull the skin down. BOTOX is very effective at smoothing wrinkles and folds, such as:

  • Forehead worry lines
  • Frown lines between the brows
  • Crow’s feet on the sides of the eyes
  • Vertical lines around the lips
  • Dimpling of the chin
  • Lifting the eyebrows and corners of the mouth
  • Relaxing vertical neckbands

Expert injector Dr. Klausner can use BOTOX in combination with injectable fillers for nonsurgical procedures, such as nonsurgical brow lifts and nonsurgical facelifts.

The BOTOX Procedure

BOTOX initially comes as a powder—Dr. Klausner adds saline to turn the powder into a liquid suitable for injection. We never dilute product more than necessary to cut costs. With each patient, Dr. Klausner opens a fresh bottle and dilutes the BOTOX right before the procedure. The medication is then injected directly into particular muscles of the face to achieve the desired effect. The BOTOX proteins remain in the muscle for about 3-4 months, at which point they are broken down by the body and excreted naturally and undetectable.

If injected correctly, BOTOX does not have systemic effects throughout the body and only affects the muscles into which they are injected. Properly done BOTOX injections should result in a relaxed and smooth face, achieving your desired look without appearing unnatural. Subtle, natural facial relaxation is what you should expect from your BOTOX treatment. Side effects or problems with BOTOX injections are almost exclusively due to inexperienced or unskilled injectors.

This is why you should be discerning about where you get your BOTOX injections. Due to Dr. Klausner’s education and experience, including her double board-certification by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and by the American Board of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, you can be confident that she has earned the title of an experienced injector and is one of the best in Manhattan.

Recovering From Your BOTOX Injection Procedure

Following your procedure for BOTOX in New York City or Manhattan, you might have minor swelling, redness, and bruising in the injection sites, but this will likely not persist. We might suggest that you refrain from strenuous physical activity and avoid touching the injection sites until after a day or so. Over the next 2-3 days, you should begin to experience smoother, firmer skin. BOTOX injections could deliver up to four months of natural-looking, youthful enhancements for most men and women. Dr. Klausner will determine how often you should receive treatments as part of a personalized plan to attain your desired goals. Our team can provide you with the approximate price of BOTOX procedures; however, the cost generally varies, depending on the number of units utilized.
