Wouldn’t it be great if we could all discover the one thing that would prevent our skin from prematurely aging? While everyone is still looking for that Fountain of Youth, there are other ways to reduce those early signs of aging and to take years off your skin without having to undergo serious surgeries or invasive treatments. Our Forest Hills, NY, dermatologist, Dr. Tamara Moss, can tell you about Botox.

What is Botox?

Okay, so you’ve probably heard of Botox before. Perhaps you’ve seen ads on TV or in magazines talking about this simple injectable treatment that can smooth fine lines and wrinkles of the face; however, how much do you really know about Botox and what it can do for you?

First and foremost, Botox is made up of a purified medical-grade form of botulinum toxin, which temporarily paralyzes certain muscles groups to prevent them from contracting. Since the muscles are unable to contract this instantly smooths away dynamic wrinkles (wrinkles that appear when making facial expressions like smiling or frowning).

What are the benefits of Botox?

As you might imagine, the major benefit to getting Botox from our Forest Hills skin doctor is that you will get a safe and effective cosmetic treatment. There are a lot of spas and “Botox parties” out there; however, it takes a qualified medical professional to be able to safely administer this cosmetic treatment. When you come into our office you can trust that we know how to safely perform this non-surgical procedure to minimize side effects and complications.

Another major benefit is that we can take years off your skin without ever needing to turn to invasive procedures or surgery. While Botox won’t be able to give you the results of a face-lift, it can be a great way to tackle those early signs of aging as well as mild-to-severe wrinkles without the post-treatment downtime or needing to undergo more aggressive and expensive treatments.

Plus, Botox can treat a variety of different wrinkles. You might be right for Botox if you are looking to reduce or even eliminate these common issues:

  • Crow’s feet (wrinkles around the eyes)
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Drooping brow
  • Laugh lines (also referred to as nasolabial folds)
  • Wrinkles on or around the chin
