Frown lines and crow’s feet around the eyes can make you look older than you feel and undermine your self-confidence in your appearance. None of us can avoid the natural aging process, but there are many effective treatments on the market to help you look younger. BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the most popular anti-aging therapies, and renowned cosmetic surgeon Dr. Craig Foster offers comfortable, convenient BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment at his Manhattan practice. Patients can come in for a quick appointment - often during a lunch hour or between errands – and leave looking more refreshed.

Relaxing Lines and Wrinkles
BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into the facial muscles to minimize the signs of aging between and around the eyes. It works by blocking the release of the neurotransmitter that causes muscle contraction. When the muscle does not contract, the overlying skin remains relaxed for a more even, youthful appearance. Both men and women turn to BOTOX® Cosmetic for its benefits, making it the single most frequently performed minimally invasive cosmetic procedure.
Simple Treatment, Stunning Results
BOTOX® Cosmetic is FDA-approved to treat moderate to severe crow’s feet, the wrinkles radiating from the corners of the eyes, and frown lines between the brows (sometimes called "the 11s"). These creases result from years of repeated muscular contractions that control our facial expressions. Although BOTOX® Cosmetic is incredibly effective at combatting the lines around the eyes, patients who wish to address deep facial wrinkles in other areas of the face, around the nose and mouth for example, may be better candidates for dermal fillers like JUVÉDERM™ or Radiesse®. While some patients receive BOTOX® Cosmetic as a standalone treatment, many choose to complement it with surgical procedures such as a facelift for more comprehensive results. If you are interested in less invasive treatment, we also offer microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and other options to rejuvenate the skin.
Your BOTOX® Cosmetic Treatment
BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are a very comfortable and efficient treatment, and can be applied in as little as 10-15 minutes. We can provide a mild topical anesthetic to minimize any discomfort, although many patients undergo the therapy without it. As you relax in the exam chair, a very small amount of BOTOX® Cosmetic will be injected into the treatment area. Patients can be in and out of the office quickly, and with no recovery or downtime, they can immediately return to their everyday activities. In fact, many of our patients come in during their lunch break or between appointments, and return to work or go to the gym.
Patients can enjoy the youthful effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic for roughly three to six months. After the effects have faded, patients will need to return for another round of treatment to sustain their results.
