We offer BOTOX treatments to patients from Syracuse, NY and surrounding areas who want to look younger and naturally refreshed without surgery by smoothing out wrinkles caused by facial muscle contractions. Common trouble spots (see illustration) include:
Before we recommend BOTOX or any treatment, we will perform an in-depth cosmetic consultation. We will ask you to describe the improvements you want to attain. Then we will thoroughly evaluate your skin and facial anatomy to determine a treatment plan best suited to your aesthetic goals. For a more complete facial rejuvenation, we may recommend combining BOTOX with injectable fillers.
BOTOX is a purified form of the botulinum toxin that temporarily relaxes specific facial muscles that contribute to wrinkles over time. BOTOX does not fill in wrinkles like dermal fillers; it allows the wrinkles to gradually smooth out on their own. Although plastic surgeons typically do not use BOTOX for non-cosmetic purposes, these properties also make it an effective treatment for neck spasms, overactive bladder, and excessive sweating.
If we determine you are a good candidate for BOTOX, you may be able to have your treatment during your first visit. We will prepare a single-use vial of BOTOX to ensure that the product is fresh and results are consistent. This practice also optimizes safety by eliminating the possibility of cross-contamination between patients.
BOTOX treatments are performed with quick injections in precise areas of the targeted muscles, which are not always in the wrinkle itself. Because the needle used is so short and thin, patients typically find the treatments quite tolerable.
BOTOX treatments cost $12 per unit at our practice ($350 minimum). We are pleased to be members of the Brilliant Distinctions® program, which offers discounts for BOTOX treatments.

There is no required downtime after treatments, so most patients return to work or their normal daily activities right afterward. It's normal to have tiny bumps that look similar to a mosquito bite at the injection sites initially; these usually disappear within a few hours.
For optimal results, we offer the following recommendations for our BOTOX patients before and after treatment:

BOTOX treatments result in a smoother and improved appearance that appears gradually within 3 to 5 days. The improvements last up to 4 months.
When administered by skilled, experienced professionals, BOTOX treatments won't affect your natural facial expressions or leave you looking frozen or plastic. You will still look natural when you smile or frown, just more youthful and refreshed.
Results from BOTOX treatments typically last 3 to 4 months. With regular maintenance treatments, you may be able to wait longer between treatments. This is because facial muscles, like other muscles in the body, become weaker when they are not used.
