At Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Center in Huntington, NY, patients in and around the community can seek quality care for their skin and body. Our team works closely with patients to help them achieve a more youthful appearance with procedures that provide the reduction or removal of fine lines and wrinkles. Many of our patients seek solutions with our cosmetic injectables, including Botox injections. The purpose of this treatment is reducing the signs of aging without the need for invasive plastic surgeries.
Dr. Roger Koreen describes Botox as an injection treatment that can target the fine lines and wrinkles by inhibiting the muscle contractions in the face. Botox has been used for many years by doctors for the treatment of:
- Chronic headaches and migraines
- Cervical dystonia
- Temporomandibular joint disorder
- Overactive bladder
It was later found that one of the benefits of this treatment was the reduction of fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the facial area when injected into the muscles, which brought the medication into the hands of dermatologists who were interested in providing cosmetic enhancement for patients not quite ready for the risks, costs, and recovery time of plastic surgeries. Botox became a common name in the industry and is now one of the most frequently requested treatments in our practice.

How does Botox work?
Botox is formulated with botulinum toxin type A. This medication can reduce the contractions caused by muscles. When a dermatologist such as Dr. Roger Koreen injects Botox directly into specific areas of the face, it can help smooth away fine lines and folds. It is most often used on the upper third of the face to treat:
- Forehead folds
- Crow’s feet
- Glabellar lines
It is important for patients to understand that this treatment does not result in immediate improvement. Instead, the results are developed over several days and then last approximately six months before patients need to seek reinjection. Dr. Roger Koreen and his staff can assess the patient and help them determine if Botox is appropriate for their needs.
Is Botox safe?
Botox is a safe solution for patients who are not ready to undergo plastic surgery. Plastic surgery is best utilized for patients who have severe signs of aging that cannot be improved with basic injections. Also, when patients undergo plastic surgery, they have to learn about the risks associated with such an invasive procedure. Dr. Roger Koreen finds that patients are not allergic to Botox in most cases and can enjoy treatment with this injectable without concern.
What other options are available?
Outside of traditional plastic surgeries, patients also have the option to ask about dermal fillers and collagen stimulators. These are also injectables available in our office for cosmetic enhancement of the facial area. In fact, many of these can be combined with Botox for a “liquid facelift” to achieve the results patients desire. Dr. Roger Koreen encourages patients to book a consultation appointment at his practice to first assess the needs of the patient and then make appropriate recommendations in regard to what needs to be done to reach these goals. Many of our patients will find that the combination of Botox with dermal fillers and collagen stimulators will provide the most dramatic improvements. This is where a full assessment can provide advantages to our patients.
