BOTOX® Plastic Surgeon NYC


BOTOX® is an extremely popular and safe procedure offered at the New York based board certified plastic surgeon’s top rated plastic surgery practice.. Your BOTOX® injection will be performed by the NYC Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Douglas M, Senderoff, MD, FACS and the treatment is a quick out-patient procedure in either his Manhattan or Westchester, New York office. The BOTOX® procedure takes less than 15 minutes and you can immediately get back to your daily routine without any discomfort. If you have sensitive skin, the BOTOX® injection may leave a small red dot which may persist for the remainder of the day – this can easily be covered with make-up.

How is BOTOX® injected?
BOTOX® is injected into the affected muscles by the NYC Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Douglas Senderoff, MD, FACS, who will determine which muscles need to be treated.

Does the BOTOX® injection hurt?
Some people report minor, temporary discomfort from the injection. BOTOX® is reconstituted with sterile, preservative-free, normal saline for injection. The neutral pH of the injected solution, in combination with the fine-gauge needle the NYC plastic surgeon will use, can help to minimize any injection-related pain. Most patients report that BOTOX® injections do not hurt.

When will BOTOX® start to work?
The effects of BOTOX® will become apparent within three days and will continue to become more apparent over the next two weeks.

How long with the effects of BOTOX® last?
BOTOX® offers sustained relief. The effects of BOTOX® will normally last for 3 – 4 months. Treatments can be continued as long as your condition responds to BOTOX®. After this period the effects BOTOX® of will start to wear off, the injected muscles will become more active and creases may return.

Usually, BOTOX® treatment is required approximately four times per year. Because symptoms can change over time, the amount and duration of relief you’ll experience can vary. The Manhattan Plastic Surgeon can determine how to achieve the best possible results with BOTOX®.
