Since wrinkles negatively impact your appearance, Dr. Robert Morin specializes in Botox injections in New York. Botox injection is the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure in the United States. It is used to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles in a minimally invasive way. These injections are made from botulinum toxin A, an FDA approved agent that blocks the nerve to muscle communication that is responsible for creating wrinkles. When used correctly, a Botox injection can result in a younger and more refreshed appearance. Dr. Morin's expert injection technique lifts the brows and addresses crow's feet and wrinkles without creating an expressionless appearance. As a highly experienced board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Morin can customize treatments and procedures to suit each patient’s personal and aesthetic needs.

Botox Cosmetic Candidates

With an exclusive goal of creating the best aesthetic results possible, Dr. Morin offers Botox injections for individuals looking for facial rejuvenation. Ideal candidates are people looking to address moderate to severe facial wrinkles while maintaining realistic expectations. Botox will enhance your appearance and is a great solution for men and women who experience the following concerns:

  • Frown lines between the brows
  • Crow's feet lines
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Forehead lines
  • Lipstick lines

This treatment is suitable for a wide variety of patients who seek to correct wrinkles for a short period of time. Once the Botulinum toxin is injected into problematic areas it softens facial lines and youthfully revitalizes your features. Dr. Morin's wrinkle injections diminish signs of aging and help boost confidence.

Advantages of Botox Injections

Approved by the FDA in 2002, Botox injections are the premiere treatment designed to relax muscles and smooth dynamic wrinkles. Botox is a natural, purified protein that decreases the severity of wrinkles for up to 6 months. It is the only procedure that quickly eliminates fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, forehead and mouth. Your treatment is fast, comfortable and shows results with no downtime needed after the injection. Dr. Morin is one of the top providers of Botox Cosmetic facial rejuvenation treatments in the New York area.

FAQs

1. How are wrinkles formed?

When you smile, laugh, frown, or look puzzled, you contract the muscles in your face. Over time, these actions produce permanent furrows and deep wrinkles in the skin, especially around the eyes and mouth, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead. These lines, created by facial gestures often make you look older, sad, angry or tired.

2. Can Botox be combined with dermal fillers?

Yes. The combination of Botox and dermal fillers can not only prevent you from deepening these lines during natural facial movements, but they can also erase the lines you have at rest. You will therefore look younger and more refreshed. At Dr. Morin’s office, we use a combination of Botox and several different dermal fillers in order to provide the best possible results based on an individual’s needs.

3. When will I notice results from Botox?

After a treatment your wrinkles will begin to fade within 24 to 48 hours. The full result, however, will only be seen after approximately five days. Most patients achieve their desired results after just one injection, although additional treatment sessions may be required in the future. The results from a Botox injection can last up to approximately four to six months.

4. What side effects are associated with Botox?

Slight swelling and bruising at the injection site is common following your Botox procedure. Patients may also experience muscle weakness, feel tired and have a headache after injections. These side effects should subside within a few days of treatment. Call Dr. Morin’s office if you experience severe side effects or would like additional information.
