Many of our patients travel a great distance to have surgery with Dr. Schulman, so we understand that it may not be possible for you to come to our office for your initial consultation.
Dr. Schulman uses highly advanced injection techniques to safely deliver results that last for months. Dr. Schulman uses Botox as well as other popular brands of the toxin including Dysport® and Xeomin®. The benefits include:
- Significantly reduce or eliminate wrinkles and lines on the forehead, between the eyebrows, crow’s feet and corners of the mouth
- Treat fine to severe facial lines that are caused by movement and muscle contraction
- Improve a tired, worried, or angry appearance
- Jawline slimming
- Reduce severe sweating of the underarms, hands, or feet
When used in the younger years, Botox can help prevent the appearance and severity of wrinkles later in life. If you treat these lines early, you may prevent them from becoming deeper and more difficult to eliminate later.
Before and After Images
Reduce those lines that are currently present with quick in-office injections. The results of Botox will last an average of 4 months, and despite the popular misconception, the lines WILL NOT come back deeper after the Botox wears off. In fact, the lines tend to improve even after the Botox wears off.
Meet Dr. Schulman – Botox New York City
“Quite frankly, botox often gets a bad rap. But this is because you only notice the bad botox, not the good ones! It is an amazing tool to rejuvenate the face, look more youthful, and even prevent lines and wrinkles from developing. The key is doing just enough to help, but not too much to make you look unnatural. I get that you want to look better, but not frozen. So, no matter if you are a botox veteran, or a newbie, I got you covered.”
Treatment of Hyperhidrosis
Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, can be very debilitating and limit social interactions. Botox can reduce sweating of the underarms, hands, and feet with results lasting up to one year. It may be a great option for those people whose sweating is resistant to over-the-counter products.
Real Patient Testimonial
Real Patient Testimonial
I started getting botox in my early thirties because I didn’t like the lines on my forehead and between my eyes when I moved. I love how Dr. Schulman makes me look refreshed, but I can still move everything so no one knows I get it done.
Questions and answers about Botox
How does Botox work?
Botox is a powerful neurotoxin that blocks the connection between nerves and muscles. When botox is injected into a muscle, the muscle will not contract. This is a temporary block, and the connection “heals itself” after a few months, allowing the muscle to “work” again.
How long does Botox last?
In most people, Botox lasts about 3-6 months. It will slowly wear off during this time and the muscle will return to full function.
How does Botox get rid of wrinkles?
Wrinkles are just creases in the skin. They form when muscles contract and make creases in the skin. By paralyzing the muscles that are making the skin crease, the crease, or wrinkle, will be reduced.
Who is a candidate for Botox?
Anyone with lines and wrinkles is a candidate. Also, people who have very animated facial expressions may desire botox. Additionally, botox is also used to treat tooth grinders, large jaw muscles, and excessive sweating.
How is Botox different from Fillers?
Botox temporarily paralyzes the muscles that are creating lines and wrinkles. So, even though botox reduces wrinkles, it is not directly treating the wrinkle……it is just treating the muscles that are causing the wrinkle. Fillers, however, are directly filling lines and wrinkles and do nothing to treat the muscle. So, these are different things, but commonly used in combination.
Does it hurt?
Botox is injected with a small needle, but most people feel little more than a tiny pinch.
Is there any “downtime”?
No. You can resume normal activities right away. It is possible that you may get a small bruise at an injection site.
Does it work right away?
No. Botox takes a few days to a week to start working.
How much does it cost?
The cost of Botox will depend on the amount of botox being used. Your doctor may charge a price “per unit” or “per area”. You should expect to spend a few hundred dollars per area, but again, this will vary between people, doctors, and geographic area.
Are there different types of Botox?
When people refer to Botox, most likely they are using it to describe botulinum toxin. Botox is a brand name for a botulinum toxin. There are currently several different Botulinun toxins on the market from different companies, and include Botox, Xeomin, Dysport, and Jeuveau. There are other toxins in development as well. There may be some debate about whether one is any better or different than the others, but they are all based on the same active ingredient.
