BOTOX® Cosmetic is commonly used to safely reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. It is injected under the skin into areas surrounding the eyes, forehead and brow to smooth crow’s feet, frown and worry lines. The active ingredient does not directly affect nerves or muscles. Made from a purified protein, BOTOX® Cosmetic injections temporarily block the signal from nerve to muscle, relaxing muscle activity. Wrinkles caused by muscle agitation will smooth and soften, giving the face a rejuvenated appearance. At Union Square Dermatology, a topical anesthetic is used to insure comfort and reduce the risk of bruising.
Our philosophy is that cosmetic treatments should enhance an attractive appearance, not draw attention to the treatment itself. We take pride in a “light touch” and avoid an over-corrected plastic result.
In our office, all consultations and treatments are performed by Board certified dermatologists and members of the American Academy of Dermatology, and their years of training and experience combine to achieve consistent natural appearing results.
