About BOTOX® Cosmetic at CNY Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery
Have you started noticing wrinkles appearing on your face that didn’t seem to be there yesterday? You might not be ready for a face lift or a forehead lift, but you’re also not ready to look old. It’s safe and easy to maintain or even renew your facial appearance with a quick treatment of BOTOX Cosmetic in Syracuse, NY, at the office of board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Gregory Baum and Dr. Anthony Deboni.
Benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetic
Millions of women and men across the nation have made BOTOX Cosmetic the most popular non-invasive cosmetic treatment. Typical candidates are between the ages of 35 and 65 and seeking treatment for a variety of cosmetic benefits, including:
- Horizontal forehead furrows
- Vertical frown lines between the eyebrows
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
Wrinkles that do not respond to BOTOX Cosmetic can be corrected with injectable fillers like Radiesse® and JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel. Often a combination of the two types of wrinkle treatments provides impressive results. Our BOTOX patients from Syracuse, Utica and Watertown, NY also combine their treatments with other Medical Spa services, like laser skin resurfacing, spider vein treatment, and microdermabrasion.
We also treat excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) with BOTOX. Our Syracuse patients appreciate relief when deodorants don’t work. BOTOX temporarily blocks the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive chemical signals, the excessive sweating stops.
How It Works
Certain wrinkles, called dynamic wrinkles, are caused by repeated contractions of facial muscles. BOTOX Cosmetic diminishes these wrinkles by temporarily suspending the muscles that are causing them. Once the muscle movement has stopped, the wrinkles gradually fade to give you a smoother, more refreshed look. The untreated facial muscles are not affected and you will retain the ability to make the full range of natural facial expressions.
All of our Medical Spa treatments are performed either by or under the direction of our board-certified plastic surgeons. A significant advantage of BOTOX treatments is that they are so convenient. Because there is minimal pain involved, most patients don’t require anesthesia. The entire treatment takes only minutes to complete. Afterwards, you are free to return to your normal routine, including work, as there is no required downtime.
Your Refreshed Look
Within a few days of your treatments, your targeted wrinkles will begin smoothing out and continue to do so for about 2 weeks. Maintaining these final improvements, which can last between 3 to 6 months, is as simple as a quick touch up visit every now and then.
The majority of the women and men who choose BOTOX Cosmetic treatments at our practice are extremely happy with the wrinkle relief they gain.
