There is a lot of misinformation about BOTOX®, as the treatment is often misrepresented negatively. However, in many cases, the harmful “side effects” result from inexperienced practitioners rather than the medication. The truth is that BOTOX® has been around for decades and is a perfectly safe wrinkle-reducing treatment used worldwide. Fortunately, Dr. Roger Koreen of Dermatology & Cosmetic Laser Center in Huntington, New York, is an expert in administering safe and effective wrinkle removal injection treatments.
BOTOX®: Separating Fact from Fiction
BOTOX® is an excellent treatment to help reduce the appearance of lines that develop on the top part of your face. Such lines are known as dynamic wrinkles, forming whenever we make specific facial expressions. The lines are caused by muscular contraction, which is vital for our faces to show expression.
As we age, our skin loses support from elastin fibers and collagen, resulting in the skin over the contracting muscles remaining wrinkled instead of smoothing back into position. BOTOX® promotes relaxation, allowing the skin on the forehead and around the eyes to naturally smooth out the way it used to.
Whether you have crow’s feet, furrowed brows, frown lines, or lift your eyebrows to open up your eyes without undergoing brow lift surgery, BOTOX® may be the ideal treatment for you.
Four Amazing Benefits Patients Experience Using BOTOX®
Here are four ways BOTOX® can improve your appearance and even your health.
BOTOX® Can Enhance Natural Beauty
Your skin can look more youthful and natural, from frown lines to forehead wrinkles. Despite what you might hear about the medication causing a “frozen face,” when applied correctly by talented and experienced practitioners like Dr. Koreen, you see only relaxed, smooth, youthful skin.
May Improve Certain Health Conditions
BOTOX® can also treat certain health conditions, such as TMJ and other conditions that cause muscle pain, by relaxing the impacted muscles.
BOTOX® injections can even treat people suffering from chronic migraines, among other chronic health problems.
Since BOTOX® blocks nerve activity in muscles, the treatment may prevent excessive muscle use. These injections benefit people who suffer from conditions such as urinary incontinence, excessive underarm sweating, and overactive bladder.

Fast and Non-Invasive
BOTOX® injections only take a few minutes. Dr. Koreen will use a tiny needle to inject the medication into targeted areas of your face. Since these injections are non-surgical, you will not have as much downtown after your appointment, allowing you to enjoy the rest of your day with few limitations.
Virtually Immediate Noticeable Results
With BOTOX®, you will likely see results within four days after your treatment. And the medication continues working for up to three months following treatment. As your face gets used to being more relaxed, the visual results become more pronounced.
There are very few side effects. After your injection, you might notice a bit of light bleeding and tenderness around the injection site, which subsides within 24-48 hours.
