VOTED LI’S BEST BOTOX PRACTICE 2016!
Even if you’re just starting to look into anti-aging treatments, chances are you’ve heard about BOTOX®. In the hands of the best Long island plastic surgeons, it can produce incredible yet natural anti-aging results for men and women alike.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a protein serum used by plastic surgeons in Long Island to treat wrinkles on the face caused by underlying muscle contraction. It is one of the best non-surgical forms of facial rejuvenation available today and is capable of producing phenomenal, immediate improvement in your appearance. Dual-board-certified Long Island plastic surgeon Dr. James Marotta is proud to offer BOTOX® and other neurotoxins to patients at our state-of-the-art clinic.
How does BOTOX® work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic works by blocking the impulses from the nerve to the facial muscles. The result is that the underlying facial muscles relax and the skin begins to smooth out. This is only temporary, and scientific studies have proven that the treated muscles regain full function within three to six months.
BOTOX® has been approved by the Federal Drug Administration as a safe and effective therapy drug since 1989 and has been used effectively as such for over 20 years.
What are the benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments at Marotta Plastic Surgery Specialists?
Patients who visit our Long Island clinic often ask about BOTOX® to address the following:
- Prominent wrinkles or furrows in the forehead
- Small wrinkles or “crow’s feet” around the eyes
- A vertical “frown line” between eyebrows
- Fine lines around the mouth (“lipstick lines”)
- Horizontal wrinkling around the top of the nose
- Flaring of the nostrils
- Excessive chin puckering
What to expect during your BOTOX® treatment at Marotta Plastic Surgery Specialists
Our injectable experts deliver BOTOX® Cosmetic by an injection into the facial muscle being treated. We use a very fine gauge needle to minimize the discomfort you may feel. Additionally, expert injectors may apply a local anesthetic (numbing cream) prior to treatment to further ensure your comfort. A small amount of BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into the area of each wrinkle until your concerns have been fully addressed.
Immediately following injection, an ice pack will be placed on your face to soothe and minimize the potential for bruising or swelling. About 1 percent of patients experience mild bruising after this treatment. Dr. Marotta recommends you refrain from exercise for a few hours immediately following your anti-aging session and avoid massaging the treated area for 48 hours.
