About Botox

Wrinkles and fine lines are often our biggest adversaries in facial rejuvenation. These telltale signs of aging can leave us feeling self-conscious and less confident in our appearance. There are powerful tools in the fight against facial aging such as the faceliftbrow lift, or blepharoplasty. But what if a patient is looking for a more cost-effective, less invasive procedure? As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Steven Wallach has successfully helped countless patients achieve their aesthetic goals through the use of Botox, a trusted and proven non-surgical option for wrinkle reduction and facial rejuvenation.


Botox is scientifically known as Botulinum Toxin Type A. It is a medical injection that temporarily blocks nerve signals to the targeted muscles, making it an effective treatment for medical conditions such as migraines and involuntary neck movement (cervical dystonia). (1) It blocks the neurotransmitter acetylcholine at the neuromuscular junction, causing the target muscle to relax. (2)

It is also effective in a cosmetic capacity, smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines in the targeted area. This innovative treatment is not only effective for treating existing wrinkles but also serves as a preventative measure against future ones, making it an ideal choice for individuals seeking both cosmetic enhancement and wrinkle prevention.

The versatility of Botox allows it to address a wide range of aesthetic concerns. It can effectively reduce the appearance of crow’s feet around the eyes, forehead lines, frown lines between the eyebrows, and even neck bands. By selectively targeting these problem areas, Botox provides a customized approach to facial rejuvenation, resulting in a more refreshed and youthful appearance.

Benefits of Botox


Botox treatments are quick and convenient, completed within a short office visit. This makes it an ideal option for individuals with busy lifestyles who desire noticeable results without sacrificing valuable time. Dr. Wallach ensures that each treatment is tailored to the patient’s specific needs, providing a personalized experience that maximizes convenience and efficiency.


Botox is renowned for its ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, providing patients with a smoother and more rejuvenated facial appearance. Dr. Wallach’s expertise ensures that each injection is strategically placed to achieve optimal results, delivering a natural-looking outcome tailored to the unique needs of each patient.


Botox injections can help improve facial symmetry, addressing facial asymmetry and enhancing overall harmony and balance. Dr. Wallach’s precise technique ensures that the appropriate muscles are targeted, resulting in a harmonious facial appearance that exudes natural beauty.


For those seeking a non-surgical alternative to a facelift, Botox offers an excellent option. By relaxing the facial muscles and reducing the appearance of wrinkles, Botox can provide a more youthful and refreshed look without the need for invasive procedures.


Unlike surgical procedures, Botox injections require little to no recovery time, allowing patients to resume their daily activities immediately after treatment. This means that individuals can undergo Botox injections during their lunch break or incorporate them seamlessly into their busy schedules without disruption.


While the effects of Botox are not permanent, they offer long-lasting results that typically last between three to six months. This extended duration allows patients to enjoy the benefits of the treatment for an extended period before considering additional sessions.


Candidates for Botox treatment are individuals seeking facial rejuvenation, wrinkle reduction, and an overall anti-aging solution. This non-surgical cosmetic procedure is highly effective in addressing fine lines, frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and eliminating crow’s feet.

You should avoid Botox if you have severe allergies, if you have a neurological disorder, or if you are pregnant. Ideal candidates are men and women who desire a more youthful appearance and are bothered by the signs of aging on their face. Whether it’s the result of sun exposure, genetics, or natural aging, Botox offers a safe and proven solution.

“As an expert in the field of plastic surgery, one of the most rewarding aspects of my career has been listening to my patients’ stories about how having plastic surgery has changed their lives.”

During this consultation, Dr. Wallach will take the time to fully understand your individual goals and concerns, as well as evaluate your unique facial anatomy.

As an experienced plastic surgeon specializing in facial aesthetics, Dr. Wallach will carefully assess your skin condition, including the presence of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. He will determine if Botox treatment is the most appropriate solution for your specific needs. With his extensive knowledge and expertise, he can also discuss alternative options that may complement or enhance the outcome of your desired treatment.

To schedule your personal consultation with Dr. Wallach, please call (212) 861-6400.


Prior to your Botox treatment, it is crucial to disclose your complete medical history to Dr. Wallach. This includes any previous surgeries, current medications, allergies, and any underlying health conditions. Providing accurate and detailed information will enable Dr. Wallach to tailor the treatment specifically to your needs, minimizing any potential risks or complications.

Botox Procedure

Dr. Wallach’s technique involves a careful assessment of your unique facial structure and concerns. He strategically administers Botox injections to the areas where wrinkles and lines are most prominent, such as forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines between the eyebrows. With his expertise and precision, he ensures that the treatment is tailored to your individual needs, enhancing your natural features and achieving a rejuvenated look.

As a highly skilled plastic surgeon, Dr. Wallach understands the importance of maintaining a natural-looking result. His goal is to provide subtle enhancements that restore your youthful appearance without compromising your unique facial expressions. The effects of Botox typically last around three to four months, after which you may choose to undergo additional treatments to maintain your desired outcome.

Recovery and Results

Following your Botox procedure, there may be some minor redness or swelling at the injection site, but this usually subsides within a few hours. You can resume your daily activities immediately after the treatment, as there is no downtime required. However, it is advised to avoid strenuous exercise or excessive heat exposure for at least 24 hours.

Over the next few days, you will begin to notice the effects of Botox as your wrinkles gradually diminish. The muscles in the treated area will relax, resulting in a smoother skin texture and improved facial symmetry. Crow’s feet around the eyes will be minimized, frown lines between the eyebrows will be softened, and forehead wrinkles will be reduced.

Corresponding and Complementary Procedures 


Like Botox, Dysport is administered through cosmetic injections. It utilizes a slightly different formulation of botulinum toxin to relax specific facial muscles responsible for the formation of frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and glabellar lines (the vertical lines between the eyebrows). By targeting these dynamic wrinkles, Dysport effectively smooths the skin and restores a more youthful appearance.

Juvéderm Voluma

Juvéderm Voluma is a dermal filler that harnesses the power of hyaluronic acid to provide exceptional facial rejuvenation. As we age, our skin loses volume and begins to sag, resulting in a tired and aged appearance. Juvederm Voluma offers a non-surgical solution to restore lost volume and enhance the contours of the face, particularly in the cheeks.


Restylane is a dermal filler that effectively targets fine lines, deep creases, and volume loss in various areas of the face. Whether you desire a subtle enhancement or more dramatic rejuvenation, Restylane can help restore your youthful appearance without the need for invasive surgical procedures.
