The tried and true skin treatment Botox offers plenty of potential uses today, as doctors continue to discover benefits of this popular and effective injectable. Dysport, another filler that is newer to the market than Botox, also offers options for those wishing to achieve a smoother, fresher, and younger complexion without pain or excessive downtime.
Dr. Thomas Loeb, a top Manhattan plastic surgeon, offers both Dysport and Botox in NYC to address a wide range of aesthetic concerns.
Doctors have found that injections of Botox can add a lift to breasts of any size. Injections are strategically placed in locations underneath the breast for a non-surgical breast lift. The injections help counteract the effect of one of the anterior breast muscles that tends to pull breasts down. While the formula has not yet been officially FDA-approved for this purpose, some doctors using it off label have achieved positive results.
The FDA has approved Botox for treating excessive sweating. The formula works by blocking the release of the chemical responsible for stimulating the sweat glands. Dr. Loeb can also use the procedure for sweaty palms or the bottoms of the feet, by injecting Botox directly into the affected sweat gland location.
Botox has also been found effective in minimizing acne breakouts in some patients. The solution works by paralyzing sebaceous glands responsible for oil production. Injections do not need to go as deeply under the skin as they might for anti-wrinkle treatment.
Patients unhappy with their gummy smile can also use Botox. The injections alleviate the tendency of the upper lip to pull too far up, revealing the teeth and gums underneath.
Botox has also been touted as a non-surgical alternative to rhinoplasty, otherwise known as a nose job. Correctly placed injections of Botox or Dysport can lead to an elongated nose with a graceful swoop to the tip. The injections can also be used to pull the tip of the nose down for a longer, leaner facial profile.
Injections of Botox in the scalp have actually been shown to stimulate growth of thinning hair.
With plenty of fabulous uses for these injectable treatments, you may find a non-surgical way to a brand new look. If you are interested in learning more about Dysport or Botox in NYC, call the Fifth Avenue office of Dr. Loeb at 212-327-3700 to schedule a private consultation.
