Botox Treatments

In Buffalo Botox® has been performed by Dr. Samuel Shatkin Jr. for many years.  Botox® is a procedure using Botulinum Toxin which was developed to treat the visual signs of aging by reducing or removing wrinkles.  The procedure is considered a safe, effective way of treating aging skin.  Common areas for Botox® injections include horizontal forehead furrows, vertical lines between the eyebrows and "crow's feet" around the eyes.  Botox® has proven to be the best non-surgical form of facial rejuvenation and is capable of producing phenomenal improvements in your appearance.  Dr. Shatkin uses Botox in other areas of the face when needed to improve wrinkles and lines.  

Reasons for Considering a Botox Treatment:

  • Excessive facial wrinkles.
  • Large wrinkles or furrows in your forehead.
  • Small wrinkles or “crow’s feet” around your eyes.
  • A vertical “frown line” between your eyebrows.
  • Jowls and pulling muscles in the neck.
  • lines around the mouth
  • Gummy Smile
  • TMJ- Facial grinding of teeth and Bruxism

General Procedure

The procedure works by altering the facial muscles beneath the skin that are related to wrinkles.  A cream with local anesthetic will be placed on your skin prior to treatment, and ice will be immediately applied upon completion of the Botox® treatment.  Typically a small amount of Botox® is injected into the area of the wrinkle.  Botox® works by blocking the impulses from the nerve to the facial muscles, thereby relaxing them.  The result is the underlying facial muscles relax and the skin begins to smooth out.  The effects of a Botox® treatment will last approximately three to six months after which the patient may choose to repeat the procedure.

Recovery Process

Patients generally return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure.  Patients should avoid engaging in heavy physical exercise, applying cosmetics, or laying down flat for a minimum of 24 hours after the injections.  It is also advisable to avoid rubbing or massaging the injected area for at least 24 hours.
