Botox® & Dysport®

Injectable Wrinkle Treatment in Westchester, New York

Lines and wrinkles are an inevitable sign of natural aging, but there are some lifestyle and genetic factors that can speed up that process, such as sun exposure and smoking. Other contributors to lines and wrinkles are unavoidable, including repeated facial expressions that create deep folds and lines. BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, and other injectables that contain botulinum toxin are safe, effective ways to reduce or eliminate those pesky wrinkles between the brows, on the forehead, and around the corners of your eyes. 

If you have unsightly lines, creases, and wrinkles on your face, Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini can help you restore a youthful appearance through a “liquid facelift” with injectables or cosmetic surgery. Contact Westchester Surgical Arts today at (646) 559-2854 to learn more and schedule your consultation with our triple-board-certified cosmetic surgeon. 

How Does BOTOX® Cosmetic & Dysport Treat Lines and Wrinkles? 

BOTOX® is one of the most commonly used injectables for cosmetic and medical reasons. Initially used to treat crossed eyes in the late 1970s, researchers and patients quickly realized that injectables created with botulinum toxin offer anti-aging benefits as well as effectively treating excessive sweating, incontinence, and other health concerns. 

BOTOX® Cosmetic is FDA-approved to treat moderate to severe “crow’s feet,” frown lines, and forehead lines. This injectable product works by temporarily relaxing the muscles responsible for creating these lines and limiting movement in the targeted wrinkled areas. Dysport® works in the same way as BOTOX® and is a valuable liquid facelift option that noticeably refreshes your face to remove years of damage and reveal a youthful, smooth complexion. Dysport® reduces the appearance of signs of aging due to repetitive facial movements without giving you a “frozen” look.

These non-surgical treatments take just 15-30 minutes and often require zero downtime. Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini gives her cell phone number to patients so you can reach out immediately with any questions or concerns after your injectable session. BOTOX® Cosmetic results can last three to five months, after which, the wrinkles may begin to appear again but milder than before. Repeat treatments of BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® can improve results and lead to longer-lasting wrinkle reduction. 

Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini often uses BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® to successfully fade the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to renew the smooth, youthful appearance you once had. 

What Causes Premature Lines and Wrinkles? 

Sun exposure or UV light is one of the biggest culprits for premature lines and wrinkles. The skin that sees the most exposure is often the first to show signs of aging, which includes the face, neck, chest, arms, and hands. Your skin already produces less elastin and collagen as you age—the proteins responsible for younger, flexible skin tissue—so when you add in UV exposure, the aging process quickens. The UV light diminishes your skin’s connective tissues that contain collagen and elastin, causing your deep skin layer to lose strength and flexibility. 

Smoking and an unhealthy diet can also lead to premature aging. Crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines typically form due to repetitive muscle movements that occur when you frown, laugh, squint, or make any facial expression. The muscles used to convey those emotions form a groove beneath the skin, which becomes more pronounced as you age and your skin loses the ability to bounce back. BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are excellent ways to decrease these frustrating creases and wrinkles.
