Botox treatment:

BOTOX® (botulinum toxin) is a purified protein which relaxes muscles. It has numerous cosmetic uses and has been used over the past 20 years in millions of happy patients.

BOTOX® is a great active treatment and preventative cosmetic treatment.

BOTOX Cosmetic™ treatments are simple and quick, taking only a few minutes to perform. In many cases, it is a great alternative to surgery - often it is referred to as a non-surgical facelift. A small amount of botulinum toxin is injected with a tiny needle into specific muscles in the face. There is very slight discomfort associated with the procedure. The effects are noticeable within days. The result is a very natural, more relaxed, refreshed and youthful look. The effects of BOTOX® will wear off within 3-6 months and repeat injections are done as the muscles become active again.

BOTOX® is extremely safe and has been used for over two decades by the medical profession. Side effects of BOTOX Cosmetic™ are minimal and uncommon, and there is no down time. Very commonly, Filler treatments such as Juvederm or Restylane may be combined with BOTOX for optimal skin enhancement, resulting in a "Soft Lift."

Dr. Benjamin Barankin performs all BOTOX® injections himself and advises that a specialist (eg. Dermatologist) is best trained to safely and effectively optimize your appearance.
