BOTOX New York City
BOTOX ® Cosmetic is the first and only FDA-approved prescription product that temporarily improves the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines located on both men and women between the brows and moderate to severe crow’s feet in adults. Dr. Douglas Steinbrech provides natural looking results for those interested in BOTOX injections in New York City and surrounding areas.
BOTOX ® injections are an effective way to temporarily remove frown lines and crow’s feet lines in adults creating a younger, refreshed and more natural look. Dr. Steinbrech employs a conservative approach which creates a natural appearance. His experienced administration of BOTOX® injections avoids the ‘frozen face’ look.
Within 24 to 48 hours after treatment, you should begin to observe improvement and positive results from your treatments for moderate to severe frown lines. While results vary from person to person BOTOX ® results usually last three to five months, and may last longer with repeated injections.
About BOTOX ® Cosmetic
BOTOX ® is a purified toxin naturally produced by the bacteria clostridium botulinum. The neurotoxin used in BOTOX ® interrupts the signals sent to the small muscles responsible for facial expressions. These dynamic muscles no longer receive the message to furrow your brow or squint your eyes.

Medical Conditions that BOTOX Helps with
- Migraines – Botox has been shown to help reduce the number of migraine attacks and the severity
- Hyperhidrosis – more commonly known as excessive sweating in the forehead, hands, or underarms
- Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ): some people report relief from their symptoms after treatment, though this isn’t an FDA-approved technique

- Blepharospasm – a condition that causes involuntary eyelid closure
- Bruxism – also known as teeth grinding, these injections can help to reduce or eliminate the symptoms effectively
Dr. Steinbrech will see the patient for a BOTOX consultation in his New York City office. He will take several photos of your face during your visit. During your consultation, Dr. Steinbrech will review your medical history to determine if you are a good candidate.
You’ll be asked to make various facial expressions to assess which regions require treatment and the quantity of Botox that needs to be used.
How BOTOX ® Injections Work
BOTOX ® works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscles. The doctor injects BOTOX ® into the muscles that cause frown lines and crow’s feet lines, resulting in a temporary reduction of the activity of those muscles.
Patients who are sensitive to injections will receive a topical numbing cream for 30 minutes before the Botox injections
Dr. Steinbrech injects BOTOX in small doses directly into the muscles that create frown lines, crow’s feet around the eyes, and furrows. The injections freeze these isolated muscles so they can no longer contract.
The frowning process is halted, reducing the creation of future frown lines. By blocking the release of acetylcholine, the substance blocks facial muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form. The result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines.
Treatments last approximately fifteen minutes. Afterward, you will be able to go about your normal routine.
A similar technique may be used in the brow region to create a “lift” in the forehead, known as a BOTOX brow lift.
Recovery: What To Expect
There is relatively no downtime associated with neuromodulators. You may experience some minor swelling/ bruising around the injection site for the first few days, which is normal.
You may also experience some slight discomfort or tightness in the treated area, but this should also dissipate within a few days.
Most people feel comfortable returning to work and their normal activities shortly after their BOTOX session. However, it is important to avoid strenuous exercise and activities that could cause excessive sweating for the first few days after these types of cosmetic procedures.
Be careful not to rub or massage the treated area, as this can cause the Botox to spread unevenly.
BOTOX® Frequently Asked Questions
Unlike Dermal Fillers like Juvederm Voluma or similar, BOTOX Cosmetic is a neurotoxin, a formulation of botulinum toxin type-A. The injections temporarily paralyze muscles to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Administered by injection, BOTOX Cosmetic works by blocking the release of a chemical that causes muscles to contract. When this chemical is blocked, the muscles relax and the skin becomes smoother.
Discomfort is brief and minimal for most patients, and treatment usually lasts only about 10 minutes. The doctor numbs the treatment area with a cold pack or topical anesthetic. After the Botox session, you may experience localized tenderness or pain as a side effect, but this should be temporary.
BOTOX ® treatments are not permanent. While results vary from person to person, BOTOX ® results usually last three to five months and may last longer with repeated injections. Rarely, a person’s body can build up immunity to the formula used in BOTOX ®, in which case the injectable treatment will lose its effectiveness.
After 24 to 48 hours of treatment, you should start to notice an improvement in your moderate to severe frown line treatments. Each person’s results and time will be different and varied. A visible reduction in frown lines should be observed within three to five days. The final results may sometimes take up to two weeks for full impact.
Facial wrinkles are caused by a combination of many factors, though can be attributed to cellular changes that can occur over time. Reduced collagen or damage caused by free radicals in the sun and the environment are also a culprit. BOTOX ® addresses brow lines and crow’s feet.
These are not ‘wrinkles.’ Frowning concentrates the muscles between your brows which in turn causes your skin to furrow and fold. Squinting your eyes causes the muscles around your eyes to contract to cause crow’s feet.
Botox injections can range in price depending on your location and the clinic you visit. Generally, Botox injections cost between $19 to $25 per unit. Some clinics may charge more or less depending on their pricing model and amount of botox units needed.
Discomfort is brief and minimal for most patients, and treatment usually lasts only about 10 minutes. The doctor numbs the treatment area with a cold pack or topical anesthetic. After the Botox session, you may experience localized tenderness or pain, but this should be temporary.
While they last for 4+ months, Botox results are not permanent. Discontinued treatments result in frown lines and crow’s feet reappearing as they did before receiving injections.
