Boost Your Confidence With BOTOX®

May 01, 2021

Since Botox® Cosmetic was approved in 2002, it has become a household name. In fact, it’s the most popular cosmetic injection, according to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery. The injectable is well-known for its ability to smooth away wrinkles. Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles gives you a more youthful look and a major boost in your confidence.

Under the direction of medical director Jamé Heskett, MD, the experienced team at The WellPath offers Botox cosmetic treatments to individuals in New York City and Lower Hudson Valley, New York.

If you’re looking for a simple, effective way to boost your confidence, look no further. Read on to learn how Botox works and what it can do for you.

How does Botox help you reach your aesthetic goals?

Are you bothered by frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines? These are dynamic wrinkles  — caused by the repeated muscle contractions — and Botox reduces their appearance. Lines that form from repeated frowning, squinting, smiling, or even raising your eyebrows can make you feel self-conscious. 

Here’s how Botox works:

  • Botox contains a purified botulinum toxin 
  • The compound gently relaxes specific muscles so they don’t contract so severely 
  • We inject Botox into the muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles
  • Results start to appear within 24-48 hours
  • The effects last for up to four months

That’s it! In just 10-15 minutes, your injections are done. The Botox solution causes your muscles to relax, which reduces the appearance of unwanted wrinkles, restoring a smoother, fresher appearance. 

Customized treatments to reach your goals

Botox is a popular treatment, but it’s not one-size-fits-all. During your one-on-one consultation, you have the opportunity to share what areas you want to focus on and what your aesthetic goals are. 

We can use Botox to treat:

  • Crow’s feet (the wrinkles around your eyes)
  • Eyebrow furrows
  • Forehead wrinkles 

Botox doesn’t have to be the only component in your aesthetic plan. If you have other goals, we can explore other cosmetic services to complement your Botox. For example, you might consider dermal fillers to address the loss of facial volume. 

The confidence of a queen

In addition to using Botox to smooth away crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and eyebrow furrows, Dr. Heskett also offers the Nefertiti lift. Named after the beautiful Egyptian queen, the Nefertiti lift harnesses the power of both Botox and Xeomin to restore a youthful appearance to the lower part of your face, jaw, and neck. 

Preparing for Botox

Botox is a safe and effective treatment, but like all procedures, there are side effects. Redness at the injection site and bruising are two common (and temporary) side effects, but you can reduce your risk of bruising by avoiding anti-inflammatory medications, aspirin, and blood-thinning herbs/supplements at least two weeks before your treatment. 

You’ll receive additional guidance during your consultation.
