When you opt for Botox surgery, you might have some questions and reservations in your mind. Let’s clear them, so you can get a clear picture of Botox in New York NYC by Dr. Gartner.
Firstly, Botox is an FDA approved treatment and is one of the few procedures that can temporality hide the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, crows feet etc in adults. Dr. Michael Gartner is a trained and certified plastic surgeon thus is more than capable of handling Botox procedures with expertise.
Another reason why patients gravitate towards Botox NYC is because it is a relatively quick and non-invasive practice, it can be done in a little over 10 min. This makes it more accessible to you, as you won’t have to undergo stressful surgery for hours. You can come by during your lunch break and get Botox done from Dr. Gartner in New York.
Perhaps one main reason why people prefer Botox, especially around the eyes is due to the quick results. In most surgical procedures, there is a healing time. Thus, the results are only noticeable after a couple of weeks of healing. Even with that it can take up to a year for the full effects of the surgery to be seen. That is not the case with Botox. The results of Botox from Gartner clinic New York can be seen in about 24- 48hrs after the procedure. This is great for people who are impatient or are looking for immediate results. The results are also not as drastic or dramatic as surgery. With Botox, you get a subtle, more natural-looking face. It hides the fine lines and fills in any wrinkles but does not completely change the face. With Botox from Dr. Gartner, you look like the best version of yourself.
In addition to cosmetic reasons, many patients come in to get Botox rather than implants for other reasons as well. A common condition is called hyperhidrosis which causes excessive sweating. This can be treated with Botox. Although Botox isn’t a cure for the problem itself, it can help treat one of the symptoms. One more issue that Botox can help with is migraines. People who suffer from a lot of migraines may also prefer Botox. Botox relaxes those muscles and stops the onset of migraines. Dr. Gartner is a professional who can handle these procedures with utmost care and precision and makes sure that each patient gets their Botox injections in an effective and precise manner.

You should always mention any medication, vitamin or herbal supplements you take with Dr. Gartner. He will then advise you if you should stop taking any medication before the procedure to ensure maximum results.
One common question that Dr. Gartner gets asked is will the Botox procedure be painful? The simple answer is no. The needles used in Botox are small and thus do not cause any pain. Another Factor that determines the pain or discomfort you feel is your doctor.

Most of the time a Botox treatment does not even require any Anesthetic, however some patients may have more sensitive skin or perhaps are just nervous, and you can consult with Dr. Gartner about numbing the area or using an anesthetic cream.
Even though Botox helps improve fine lines and wrinkles, it is only a temporary fix. Most people will need to return in 6 months for refill injections. Although this is a general time frame. For some patients, the time frame may be less or more according to the individual.
However, the best part associated with Botox is that it isn’t a permanent commitment. You can try it out for 6 months and if you don’t feel like getting a refill you don’t have to. Your face will then revert to how it normally was. Botox does not cause any permanent changes to the face which is why it is preferred by many.
