Botox in Brooklyn at Juno MediSpa

Does it seem like you’ve been frowning more lately — or is it simply that the frown lines are now permanently stuck on your face? And what about those smile lines around your eyes? Are those crow’s feet still there even if you’re not smiling? And are you covering your forehead with bangs? If so, it may be time to consider Botox® treatments. And fortunately, Juno Medi-Spa offers the best Botox in Brooklyn!

What is Botox?

Botox is a cosmetic injectable that has been FDA-approved since 2002. Since then, it has become the most popular and in-demand injectable in the world. This is because it’s quick, convenient, and achieves excellent results. The injections are an extremely safe and reliable way to fight and prevent bothersome wrinkles.  

Why get Botox?

With age, repeated movements of the face, loss of skin elasticity, and thinning of the skin in certain areas eventually leads to bothersome wrinkles. All the smiling, frowning, laughing, chewing, and squinting we do over the years leaves a permanent imprint on our faces. Dr. Giyaur treats wrinkles in such a way that only the most natural-looking results are achieved. We don’t like frozen, emotionless faces. 

We like our patients smiling with a twinkle in their eyes. As a board-certified surgeon, Dr. Giyaur has studied facial anatomy extensively and is now able to give pinpoint injections into just the right muscle fibers that are causing the wrinkles without having to “freeze” the entire area. This is exciting news for our patients who love a natural look, and one of the reasons that we’re known for providing the best Botox in Brooklyn

How Botox works

Botox is a form of botulinum toxin type A — a substance that binds to the muscle receptor and prevents contraction. When the muscle doesn’t contract, the wrinkle doesn’t form. In addition, the ones that already exist gradually disappear. 

Although Botox prevents muscle contraction, don’t worry; you will still be able to make facial expressions. You just need to choose an experienced specialist. This will keep you from being over-injected.

  • Vertical wrinkles between eyebrows

Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, or Jeuveau?

Since the release of Botox, other wrinkle relaxer treatments have been released, including Xeomin®, Dysport®, and, most recently, Jeuveau®. Dr. Giyaur likes and uses each of these. They each have their own personality, and some of our patients have preferences for what they want. However, in our opinion it’s the competency of the injector that matters, not the type of neuromodulator being injected.

What to expect during treatment

No anesthesia is required for Botox injections. In addition, no downtime or recovery is necessary after this treatment, either. You may resume normal activities immediately. Needles are involved, but they are tiny.

They are typically barely felt, but for those who are especially concerned, we offer numbing cream, ice packs, and plenty of hand-holding. Patients who come back for their return treatments always decline the anesthesia, since they don’t find it necessary and prefer not to spend extra time on it. Dr. Giyaur specifically targets only the muscles that cause the problem — not the ones you need to make facial expressions. The treatment is completed in 10 minutes. 

Recovery and results

Downtime and recovery will be different for everyone, but in general, patients are able to return to their normal day immediately after a Botox treatment. There is always a risk of bruising and swelling with injections, but these side effects should be minimal. We recommend avoiding high-intensity exercise or strenuous activities for the rest of the day. We also recommend not lying down for four hours. Botox results appear 3 to 7 days after treatment, and these results will last for 3 to 6 months. Because Botox is temporary, we recommend treatments to be repeated every 3 to 4 months to maintain results. 

Is Botox safe?

The idea of injecting a toxin into the body sounds scary to many people, but the fact is that these injections are perfectly safe when administered by an experienced doctor with proper training. Botulinum toxin injections have been FDA-approved as a treatment for strabismus (eye muscle disorder) since 1989. 

Ophthalmologists were the first specialists to use Botox for eye muscle injections. Subsequently, the cosmetic benefits of Botox were discovered by an ophthalmologist. The FDA first approved Botox for aesthetic use in 2002. Since then, millions of people have been treated with botulinum toxin injections worldwide. It is indeed very safe in the right hands.
