Botox injections for wrinkle reduction in NYC area patients

Dynamic wrinkles are wrinkles and folds that develop on the face due to muscle contractions. When you frown, laugh, or smile, various areas of the facial skin are impacted. Over time, wrinkles become more profound and more noticeable. To combat this, Dr. Edmund Kwan of the NYC area may recommend wrinkle reduction using Botox injections.

How does Botox work for wrinkle reduction?

The muscles of the face result in the formation of wrinkles, specifically around the upper third. Some of the best areas for Botox include the:

  • Forehead folds
  • Glabellar lines
  • Crow’s feet

Botox is a medication that is a well-known neuromodulator formulated with an active ingredient called botulinum toxin type A. When Botox is injected into a muscle, it reduces tension and contracting. Over several days, this allows the facial skin to be smoothed out, making dynamic wrinkles less noticeable. The results of Botox will last several months before patients need to return to the office for additional injections. To maintain the results, Botox treatments will be required, and over time, they can help slow the unavoidable signs of aging on the facial skin.

Am I a candidate for Botox?

It is important that patients book a consultation visit and initial evaluation with Dr. Edmund Kwan to ensure they are good candidates for this treatment. Most patients will find Botox to be a viable option for them. In other situations, patients might also want to ask about dermal fillers, which are other cosmetic injectables used to fill wrinkles and folds and smooth the skin. Botox can also be combined with dermal fillers for a more dramatic improvement.

What our patients say


I’m a patient there since 2000.About 5 weeks ago I had breast reduction and breast lift. What a fast recovery!! I was able to go back to work after 4days of my surgery. I had terrible pain on my back and shoulder (because of weight on my breast) now all the pains are gone. The shape just came out beautiful Dr.Kwan did such a amazing job. He called and checked on me how I was doing after 2days the surgery. (I was so impressed) also I’m so pleased about their staffs. Rebecca the manager there, I know her since 2000 she was so nice the whole time She constantly called checking on me. She explained to me what I should do before and after the surgery so kindly. The whole time I felt so comfortable and pleased. I feel like I’m living new life again!

Great doctor and great team!!!
