Facial expressions, such as smiling and frowning, are caused by muscle contractions. Over time, these movements create permanent facial lines and deep wrinkles in the skin. BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injectable neuromodulator (or neurotoxin) primarily made with botulinum toxin A. Botox treatments significantly reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and fine lines.
When administered by a qualified doctor, neuromodulators can provide natural-looking results that will leave you looking more youthful and rejuvenated. BOTOX® Cosmetic—and similar muscle inhibitor products such as Dysport® and XEOMIN®—can effectively treat fine lines and wrinkles that form around the face. This can include dynamic wrinkles (wrinkles formed due to facial movements) like forehead lines, crow’s feet, frown lines, and smile lines.
BOTOX® Cosmetic can be used to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles caused by muscle movements in the mid and upper face, including:

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a neurotoxin that temporarily relaxes the muscles responsible for facial expressions, immobilizing them. Dr. Tchelebi at Park Avenue Medical Spa is certified in medical esthetics and specializes in cosmetic injections, including BOTOX® Cosmetic. During your consultation, Dr. Tchelebi will determine the precise location for your injections. A numbing cream may be used to ensure you feel little or no discomfort. The injections will be made into specific facial muscles for optimal results.
After Botox treatment, patients can return to most of their normal activities immediately after treatment but should avoid strenuous activities for 24 hours. Slight swelling, redness, and bruising may occur but should resolve in about one week, leaving you with smoother skin.
The initial results of BOTOX injections will be apparent immediately and will be refined over the next one to two weeks. The effects of the neuromodulator can last for up to six months. Regular maintenance treatments will be needed to prolong the results, but many patients report that their results last longer with repeated treatments.
