One of the best ways to address dynamic folds and wrinkles of the face that are contributing to an aged appearance is with the use of cosmetic injectables. While many patients in the New York City area may believe that plastic surgery procedures such as browlifts and facelifts are the only way to go, this is a common misconception. Instead, many adult men and women who want to reverse the signs of aging may want to ask about solutions such as Botox. Doctor Edmund Kwan is a medical professional with the skills and experience to provide surgical—and nonsurgical—solutions for patients in and around the community.
What is Botox?
Botox is a cosmetic injectable used by Dr. Edmund Kwan to address dynamic wrinkles and folds. These are imperfections in the skin caused by muscle contractions on the upper third of the face. When you frown, your muscles are contracting. When done regularly, this can cause folds and wrinkles that contribute to an aged appearance. In order to reduce their appearance, the muscles around the area can be treated to contract less, therefore smoothing out these imperfections. While not permanent, Botox injections can last many months before reinjection is needed to maintain the results and slow the gradual signs of aging with time.
Who is a candidate for Botox injections?
During an initial evaluation with Dr. Edmund Kwan, patients can find out if they are a viable candidate for this or other cosmetic injectables used at the office. Our doctor determines the severity of the imperfections that bother the patient and makes a recommendation based on his findings. Most patients with mild to moderate dynamic wrinkles will be considered a proper candidate for Botox injections.
