BOTOX is one of the most popular facial injections on the cosmetic market to soften wrinkles and rejuvenate the face. When the purified botulinum toxin type A is injected into the skin, it serves as a relaxing agent, allowing the facial muscles to temporarily stop contracting and the wrinkles to subside. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Suzman offers this treatment at WESTMED Group's Westchester County, NY office as an effective way to help reduce his patient's wrinkles and restore youthfulness back into their skin. Tighter, fuller, and smoother skin can last for up to 2-4 months following a BOTOX injection, though results will vary in every patient.
"Juvederm Voluma for Lost Facial Volume. Rye, NY - Dr. Suzman performed my surgical lower third lift and I loved it. However, I wasn't quite prepared for the after effects when the swelling fully decreased. Coupled with a lid lift, my face looked incomplete in mid-face sagging due to loss of volume at my cheeks. Dr. Suzman had administered Juverderm to my upper lip line in a way that restored volume without giving me giant bee-stung lips. I trusted him with injectables, so I sought out Juvederm Voluma for my mid-face. I can't rave about the results enough.Dr. Suzman is a magician with injectables. You may find yourself growing a little impatient with his conservative approach at first (as I did). Trust him. He knows what he's doing. When the full effect of the injectables comes in, you will not be disappointed in the least."- F. / RealSelf / Feb 26, 2015

"Dr. Suzman is so caring and so knowledgeable. I have seen him many times over the years for both cosmetic and medical reasons. He is a calming presence. If you want to see him for cosmetic reasons, he’s fantastic. You will NEVER look like you had filler or Botox. You will just look younger. If you are going for medical reasons, he is really the best. Very thoughtful in his approach."- C.A. / Google / Jan 24, 2020

The best candidates for BOTOX injections are in good health who show the following signs:
- Dynamic wrinkles
- Smile and/or frown lines
- Lines around the eyes ("crow’s feet")
What to Expect
The doctor will look at the quantity, depth, and location of your dynamic wrinkles to mark the areas of the muscles of the face that will be treated. With an ultra-fine syringe, BOTOX will be carefully injected into the marked areas. Most patients report mild discomfort when the needle pierces the skin, but numbing creams and cold compresses can be used to make your treatment more comfortable.
Besides some swelling and redness for 3 – 4 hours, you should be able to return to your regular activities after the injection. We encourage all of our BOTOX patients to avoid exercise for 24 hours and to sleep upright the first night after the treatment. Complete results after BOTOX are visible (smoother forehead and diminished wrinkles) in about 5 – 7 days. Many patients feel that BOTOX treatments make their skin look radiant, they feel younger, and look well rested.
