BOTOX Cosmetic: Dramatic Results in One Appointment
If you are unhappy with signs of aging, including fine lines on the forehead and crow’s feet around the eyes, BOTOX® Cosmetic offers a non-surgical option that can help you achieve a fresher, younger appearance. At Astoria Dental Group in Queens, Dr. Clifford Degel and Dr. Carmen-Every Degel are able to provide patients with this minimally invasive treatment that safely refines your skin by reducing lines and creases. The simple treatment is a safe and effective solution that can achieve dramatic results in just one appointment.
How Does BOTOX Cosmetic Work?
Natural aging, stress, exposure to the sun, and other environmental factors can lead to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and forehead. Facial contractions that occur when squinting, smiling, and laughing can also be a major factor that leads to imperfections. BOTOX Cosmetic prevents targeted facial muscles from contracting, which means wrinkles become less noticeable and pronounced. The treatment can even guard against the formation of new wrinkles.
BOTOX Cosmetic is a popular treatment for many of our patients because it is an affordable solution that delivers subtle, yet noticeable results. Softening wrinkles and lines helps give patients a fresh, revitalized appearance without being so dramatic that it looks unnatural.

A Safe and Effective Treatment
BOTOX Cosmetic has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) since 2002. The injectable treatment owes its effectiveness to a diluted version of botulinum toxin, which has been proven to be safe for medical use. During the initial consultation, patients should notify the doctor of any allergies since in rare cases, patients might be allergic to the ingredients. However, this is uncommon, and the benefits of the treatment generally outweigh any potential side effects or risks associated with the injections. Our doctors have extensive training and experience in administering injectable treatments so patients can expect to achieve completely natural-looking results.
What to Expect During Your Visit
Prior to receiving BOTOX Cosmetic injections, you will be asked to contract your facial muscles so that the doctor can precisely pinpoint the treatment areas. Next, a fine needle will be used to inject a small amount of the solution directly into the muscles. Although most patients describe little to no discomfort, you may choose to have the area numbed with a cold pack or anesthetic cream.

The entire process can be completed in under an hour and patients can return to work or other activities immediately following treatment. Within a few days, patients will see noticeable improvements in the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, frown lines, and other signs of aging.
