Botox Cosmetic Treatments
Most people are familiar with BOTOX® injections as an anti-aging treatment for lines and wrinkles. However, Botox is much more than a one-trick pony. When used by a talented dermatologist or facial plastic surgeon, Botox can offer safe and quick alterations to the face for an improved appearance. Our aesthetic team at LM Medical NYC in Manhattan offers Botox cosmetic treatments for our patients to resolve a wide variety of facial concerns.
Botox has a long history of use for medical and cosmetic procedures. Allergan, the makers of Botox, first received FDA-approval for Botox in 1989 for medical uses. In 2002, Botox was FDA-approved for moderate to severe frown line treatment. Since then, a wide variety of cosmetic uses have been discovered for Botox.
One of the largest benefits of Botox cosmetic treatments is that it is convenient. The injections only require 15-20 minutes, and there is no downtime after the procedure. Plus, Botox injections are safe with very little risk of side effects.
