Facial lines and wrinkles are one of the most obvious visible signs of aging, and reducing lines and wrinkles can make you look much younger than your calendar age. BotoxⓇ treatments have been the most popular choice for both men and women who want to reduce facial lines and wrinkles for years, delivering consistent and reliable results.

At Cosmopolitan Medical Practice in East Harlem, New York, Robin McKinney, DO has the experience you can trust to expertly administer your Botox treatments. Here's what you need to know about how Botox can give you subtle results that make your crow's feet and frown lines a thing of the past.

Targeted injections for subtle results

When you get a Botox treatment, we deliver a targeted injection to your facial muscles. The injection contains Botox, a purified form of botulinum toxin. While this toxin can be fatal in large amounts, we use small doses that don't carry serious health risks. 

The Botox prevents the targeted muscles from contracting and forming creases, which smoothes out the skin so your facial lines and wrinkles are minimized. With Botox injections administered by Dr. McKinney, you'll still be as expressive as ever with a range of facial motion. The injection should only target specific areas of concern.

Botox can be used to treat lines on your face in locations including:

Botox won't help with static wrinkles that remain even when your face is relaxed, but for dynamic wrinkles that show up with motion, Botox can basically banish them. Your results should last from three to six months.

Minimally invasive treatment

A Botox treatment appointment takes only a matter of minutes. Most people don't experience significant discomfort during the procedure, but we can numb your skin if you want to minimize any risk of mild pain. 

The number of injections you need depends on the extent of the area you want treated. You could be out in under 30 minutes, and there's no post-treatment down time. You can return to work or daily life right away. Your results begin to appear a day or two after treatment, and may take a few days to maximize their anti-aging effect.

While you don't need to take any time off for treatment, it's a good idea to take it easy for the first 24 hours after your appointment. Avoid strenuous exercise for the first day to prevent elevated blood flow from circulating the Botox too widely in your body, and don't rub or massage the treated area until at least 24 hours following treatment.
