BOTOX®

 

 
“Wow. The whole procedure was easy and painless and the results made me feel great. The best part is that I look natural. Dr. Grodberg has a true artist’s touch with Botox®. She uses just the right amount. People comment that I look well rested but they don’t know what I’ve done.”
—D.D. Tenafly

“A Botox® treatment is a non-surgical procedure that can smooth the “frown” lines between the brows, “crow’s feet” on the sides of the eyes and wrinkles on the forehead. It does this by relaxing the muscles that cause these lines to form, and keeps them relaxed for up to four months.”
—Dr. Michele Grodberg

Botox: Before and After 7 days

Botox® After 3 months and 4 months

 

If you’re considering treatment with Botox®, here are Dr. Grodberg’s answers to a few frequently asked questions:

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM A BOTOX® TREATMENT?

“Botox® is administered in several tiny injections. Discomfort is minimal and brief and the area can be pretreated with an ice pack or a numbing cream. It is possible to experience some bruising at the injection site, but that can be covered with makeup. You should keep your head elevated for three hours after the procedure and should not manipulate the areas.
The effect of Botox® usually begins to be noticeable in a few days, with improvement continuing up to two weeks. Botox® typically lasts up to four months.”

WHAT EXACTLY IS BOTOX®?

“Botox® is a natural, purified protein produced by the Clostridium Botulinum Bacterium. Very low doses of Botox® are administered with a few tiny injections directly into the overactive muscles that cause the lines to form. Botox® blocks the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscles.”

WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS?

“As with any medical treatment, Botox® may cause side effects, which can include headache, respiratory infection, flu syndrome, temporary eyelid droop and nausea.”

WHAT DOES IT MEAN THAT YOU ARE PART OF THE BRILLIANT DISTINCTIONS PROGRAM?

The program operates on a point system redeemable for discounts on future procedures. You earn points by purchasing a Botox® or Juvederm® treatment —and the more you participate, the more you save.
