How Does Botox Work?

Botox, Dysport®, and other neuromodulators are great tools to rejuvenate the upper face. They are especially helpful for the reduction of forehead lines, “11” lines between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet (lines next to the eyes). The neuromodulators work to decrease movement of the region to prevent the lines from forming. 

Botox specifically treats dynamic wrinkles, which are wrinkles on the face that are caused by years of facial expressions. The treatment contains botulinum toxin, which is produced by the bacterium clostridium botulinum. When injected into facial wrinkles, Botox blocks the nerve signals that are causing the muscles to contract. This means that they temporarily cannot move. The result is a rejuvenated appearance because wrinkles are not as visible. 

Preparing for Your Botox Treatment

Botox is a non-surgical outpatient procedure. Before your treatment, Dr. Reitzen will discuss any allergies you have, your medical history, and if any current medications need to be adjusted. You should remove all makeup before your appointment. During your initial consultation, Dr. Reitzen will listen to your concerns and identify any specific areas where you would like to see creases eliminated.

During Your Botox Treatment

Dr. Reitzen will inject the Botox into the specific wrinkles and lines that need to be diminished. The procedure feels similar to a slight prick, and typically takes less than 20 minutes. Most of the time, individuals who receive this treatment can return to work following their appointment.

Who is a Candidate for Botox?

If you’re interested in Botox in Upper East Side, you may be wondering if you’re a good candidate. To receive Botox treatment in NYC, you must be at least 18 years old and be in generally good health. Individuals who would like to receive this treatment will also need to discontinue blood thinners, muscle relaxers, and any additional medications that might interact with the injection. Dr. Reitzen will determine if you are an ideal candidate.

Does Insurance Cover Botox?

The cost of Botox depends on the specific changes that need to be made; therefore, the cost will be unique to each patient.

Botox treatment is usually not covered by insurance, but we recommend contacting your provider to check and see if injections for medical reasons are covered under your policy.
