Dr. Joshua Hyman is proud to provide treatments with BOTOX® in New York, New York. BOTOX is a purified form of botulinum toxin, which temporarily blocks nerve impulses to muscles. It is safe for use as a treatment for:
- Facial lines and wrinkles. Over time, the movement of your facial muscles will create wrinkles, lines and furrows in the skin. Weakening the contraction of these muscles can reduce or eliminate the lines and wrinkles in the overlying skin. BOTOX injections to your face can therefore make the skin appear smooth and refreshed.
- Migraine headaches. BOTOX has been found to be an effective treatment for people who suffer frequent migraines.
- Excessive sweating. BOTOX can be used to prevent excessive sweating under the arms and palms.
These in-office procedures take 10-20 minutes to perform and patients can return to their normal activity immediately. Seven to ten days prior to your BOTOX treatment, you must stop taking aspirin and blood thinners.
Patients will see the results of the BOTOX procedure within 3-7 days of their treatment. BOTOX treatments last approximately three to four months, although some patients have noticed longer durations with repeated treatments.
