BOTOX® in Bedford NY
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine. Botox or Botulinum toxin is a natural highly refined purified protein derived from neurotoxins produced by Clostridium botulinum bacterium. There is absolutely no live bacteria in Botulinum toxin. Treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic, a skin tightening treatment, is a simple minimally invasive, nonsurgical procedure used to elevate facial areas and to temporarily relax hyper-dynamic muscles, reduce hyperactive lines, smooth frown lines, horizontal forehead lines and crow’s feet. Only BOTOX® is FDA approved to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet lines, and forehead lines look better in adults.

Duration of Effects and BOTOX® Treatment Intervals
In many instances, clients tell us they feel the effects of BOTOX® right away, it is especially true of first-time clients. During the next 1-2 days, effects start to appear, peaking at around 1-4 weeks. During this time, we ask clients to return or call our cosmetic medical spa around days 10-12 for a touch-up if needed. This peak is steady then starts to decline at 3-4 months.
Most commonly, re-treatment is between 4-6 months. However, after receiving repeated treatments, the effects usually last longer, in some cases, 6 months and longer between repeated treatments.
What are the potential side effects?
Therapeutic doses of BOTOX® are extremely small, therefore, making systemic side effects unlikely. However, if they do occur, in most cases, they are minor and clear up on their own without treatment within a few weeks or less.
Most common side effects include bruising, temporary headache and nausea. We recommend to stop the use of blood thinning agents and alcohol 7-10 days before treatment if possible.
