Botox® is a trademark of a medication that is injected in the face to temporarily decrease wrinkles and creases by interfering with the nerve impulses that cause the underlying muscle to contract and cause the wrinkle. These lines and wrinkles are often the result of repeated facial expressions that eventually cause the muscle to remain contracted even when your face is at rest.
Botox® is the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure. Botox® is a botulinum toxin injectable that is safe and FDA-approved. It has been used for many years to treat muscle spasms.
Botox® can treat:
- The lines in the central forehead area that make you look angry or worried
- The horizontal wrinkles of the forehead
- The crinkle lines around the eyes when you smile
- Excessive sweating of the armpits (hyperhidrosis)

Who Needs Botox® Injections?
Your Botox Consultation
During your time in consultation with Dr. Singer, he will listen to your concerns and examine your skin to determine the best treatment to achieve your goals. If he concludes that Botox is a good choice for you, he will answer all of your questions so that you can make an informed decision.
He may, of course, recommend a different injectable or procedure. If so, he will explain exactly why. His goal is always to help you feel confident in your choice and at ease about your upcoming treatment.
The Botox Procedure
Botox® is a very quick procedure that usually takes only 5-10 minutes. There is a very temporary mild discomfort from the tiny needle that is used to inject the Botox® material. This can be diminished with a topical anesthetic and the use of ice packs.
Most patients will see gradual improvement of the results for up to 7 days, and while the results are individual from patient to patient, they generally last 3-4 months.
Dr. Singer performs all injectable procedures.
Recovery from Botox Injections
While most patients experience no post-injection symptoms during recovery, a few patients experience some mild bruising for 3-5 days. You can resume normal activities immediately after your injections, even returning to work from our center.
We advise you not to exercise for 24 hours after Botox® injections, however.
