Wrinkles can be improved or eliminated in areas such as the forehead, between the eyebrows, and the skin surrounding the eyes, all while looking completely natural.

The Most Popular Treatment Areas With Botox in NYC
No matter where we inject Botox, our priority is always to ensure that patients have completely natural looking results as they improve facial lines. The most popular treatment areas for patients in our Upper East Side office include between the eyebrows (also called the glabella or frown lines or the 11's), the forehead wrinkles, periorbital wrinkles (around the eyes, also called crow's feet), the platysma bands (vertical neck lines), and masseter botox for TMJ and teeth grinding. Other popular areas we treat where its use is not FDA approved include the bunny lines, its use to lift eyebrows, and a variety of other aesthetic treatments. We are also experts at performing Trap Tox or trapezius Botox in NYC. This is popular for symptomatic relief of neck and shoulder tension, improving posture, and giving the illusion of an elongated neck. It is also referred to as Swan Neck Botox.
The Botox NYC Injection Experience
Patients visiting our Upper East Side office in New York find Botox Cosmetic appointment to be simple and enjoyable.
After a consultation, Dr. Akhavan will have you perform a series of movements with your muscles in order to isolate your individual and unique forehead lines, crow's feet, and other facial lines we are treating with Botox Cosmetic. The Botox cost will be determined and discussed before the Botox is injected. The targeted facial muscles are marked with a pencil and the Botox is injected with a special tiny needle that is so small that it is trademarked “The Invisible Needle”. The Botox is injected to reduce lines and wrinkles but always in a manner that produces natural results.
After you leave the office you can resume almost all regular activity immediately. We only ask that you try to refrain from laying face down and exercising on the day of the procedure.
Results are seen in 1-2 weeks. We include a no charge follow-up appointment 2 weeks after when additional Botox can be injected at no cost if needed.
How does Botox work?
Botox Cosmetic is a brand name for a medication derived from botulinum toxin from the bacterium clostridium botulinum. When the botulinum toxin is injected into muscles, the Botox works by blocking nerve signals to the muscle leading to a relaxation in its contractions. It does so by blocking the transmission of a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine that transmits signals between the nerves and muscles.
Botox thereby relaxes lines and wrinkles such as forehead lines and crow's feet lines. Botox can also be used to treat other conditions such as migraine headaches, excessive sweating, and it can also be used to reduce muscle spasms through a similar mechanism of action involving nerve signals.
