Injectable Medication NYC
Botox® in NYC is one of our specialties. Botox® and Dysport® Cosmetics are a safe, reliable injectable medication, which blocks the actions of certain nerves. For wrinkles this means relaxing the muscles that crease the skin or pull the skin down.
Botox® and Dysport® are the brand names of a purified protein produced in a laboratory. Although both sources are derived from bacteria, neither Botox® nor Dysport® are harmful. They are modified extensively in the lab and their concentrations are diluted, making it one of the safest medications known. When injected at the right dose and using the correct injection technique, side effects are extraordinarily rare.
Botox® and Dysport® are very effective at:
- Smoothing wrinkles and folds such as:
- Forehead worry lines
- Between the brows frown lines
- 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 neck bands
Dr. Klausner can use Botox® or Dysport®, in combination with injectable fillers, for non-surgical alternatives to:
- Non-Surgical Brow lifts
- Non-Surgical Face lifts
Botox® and Dysport® both come as a powder. Dr. Klausner adds saline to make it a liquid suitable for injection. Dr. Klausner never dilutes either product more than necessary to cut cost. With each patient, Dr. Klausner, will open a fresh bottle to assure freshness and Botox® or Dysport® are then injected directly into very specific muscles of the face in order to achieve the desired weakening effects. The Botox® and Dysport® proteins remain in the muscle for about three to four months, at which point they are broken down by the body and excreted. At no point does Botox® or Dysport® get absorbed by the body. If injected correctly, Botox® or Dysport® do not have systemic effects throughout the body. It only affects the muscle into which it is injected.
Side effects or problems with Botox® or Dysport® injections are almost exclusively due to inexperienced or unskilled injectors. This is why you should be very selective to where you get your Botox® or Dysport® injections. You should know the qualifications and experience of the physician performing the treatment. Due to Dr. Klausner’s education and experience, including the fact that she is board certified 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 in your choice.
Properly done Botox® and Dysport® injections should result in a relaxed and smoothed facial appearance where you can still make facial expressions. Your desired look can be achieved without making you look unnatural. Subtle, natural facial relaxation is what you should expect from your Botox® or Dysport® treatment.
