Introduction to BOTOX

Creating Facial Balance & Harmony

Being a one-minute walk from the Museum of Arts and Design, we can’t help but be inspired. With every aesthetic treatment, art is being blended with science, and with BOTOX, this remains true. At William Samson, MD in NYC, BOTOX and other specialty wrinkle relaxers are some of our most popular non-surgical treatments. When you smile, laugh, frown or look puzzled, you contract the muscles of your face. Over time, these contractions produce deep permanent furrows and highly noticeable wrinkles in the skin, especially around the eyes and mouth, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead. These lines can make you look older, sad, angry, or tired. With modern aesthetics, these lines don’t have to exist! Welcome to the popular and widely embraced world of BOTOX. This treatment not only prevents you from deepening lines during natural facial movements, but it can also erase these marks of aging, leaving you looking younger and refreshed.

Before & After


New York

Let’s start with the basics

What is BOTOX?

Chances are you have heard of BOTOX, and if you’ve found this page, you’re curious enough about how it can work for you. If you’re feeling right now like you’ve stumbled upon a key to more youthful and glowing skin — you have! One of the best parts about BOTOX is how non-invasive it is.

We strive to provide the finest results with over a decade of experience. BOTOX is made from a highly purified protein that is very safe when administered by a trained physician. The medication relaxes the muscles in the face that cause wrinkles. In this way, BOTOX smoothes the lines in the skin that make you look tired or angry. BOTOX may also be helpful for migraine headaches, excessive sweating, and eye and neck muscle spasms.

Main Advantages

What are the Benefits of BOTOX?

The benefits of BOTOX can be significant for each patient. It can solve signs of aging in a quick amount of time, offering a fresh perspective on one’s self. The injections are known for their ability to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles, while it also treats a wide variety of medical conditions such as neck spasms (cervical dystonia), excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), an overactive bladder, and a lazy eye. Most of our patients can expect to enjoy the following benefits from BOTOX treatment:

  • Smoothing out of vertical furrows between the eyebrows (often referred to as scowl lines)
  • Softening of forehead lines, creating a more relaxed and youthful appearance
  • Reduction in the appearance of crow’s feet and fine lines around the eyes
  • Lifting of drooping, tired eyebrows for a more rested and refreshed look

What to expect on the day of surgery

Together, our team of technicians, guided by Dr. Samson, will put together a targeted plan for where the injections will occur on the day of your appointment. BOTOX is commonly not just one injection but ranges to several based on the focused areas. Treatments vary depending on your needs but typically last around 10 – 15 minutes. When receiving your BOTOX injections, anesthesia is not required; sometimes, we may numb the area before injection using a topical anesthetic.

You will decide in which areas of the face you want to see changes and to what extent. This will ultimately determine the number of injections you receive during each visit. There is no limit to the number of injections you can receive during treatment. We aim to accomplish our goal with a minimal level of invasiveness.

What’s the First Step?

You’ve heard your friends talking about it, you’ve done your research, and now it’s time to take your first step toward the BOTOX you deserve. At William Samson, MD, we are here to help you take that step, and we can assure you with BOTOX, the process is so minimally invasive it’s worth the action forward. If you’re interested in getting a BOTOX in New York City, the best first step is to schedule a consultation with one of our expert technicians. They will listen to your desires for the treatment and discuss your medical history, during which you should be honest and clear to get the most out of your injections and prevent any potential risks or side effects.

After Dr. Samson or one of our injectors has examined your face, we will determine if you are a good candidate for BOTOX, and create a treatment plan designed specifically for you. Once this plan is in place, we can start the injection that day.

Who are the Best Candidates for BOTOX?

Anyone truly bothered by forehead wrinkles, vertical furrows between the eyebrows, or “crow’s feet” around the eyes is a candidate for BOTOX in New York City. We see an assortment of patients and a diverse amount of people for BOTOX monthly. This treatment is ideal for patients looking to enhance facial features while creating a youthful appearance without undergoing more invasive surgery.

*BOTOX at William Samson, MD is most suitable for those wanting to improve the appearance of dynamic wrinkles.

BOTOX Recovery

With our team’s minimally invasive approach, there is no surgical wound to care for after a Botox procedure. However, we highly recommend avoiding the following activities in the first four hours after your treatment as they may spread the toxin out to other areas:

  • Lying on your back
  • Scratching the site
  • Applying pressure or heat on the treatment area
  • Exercising, going to the sauna, sun exposure and other activities that cause flushing

You may go back to your normal activities after this period. You can even wear makeup and resume your skincare regimen as soon as it is over.

Are BOTOX painful?

A BOTOX procedure can be virtually painless with topical anesthetic, and you can leave right after the procedure. Many New York City patients report that even without a numbing agent, pain is extremely minimal. The only thing you may feel is a little pinch, as injections are very quick, and with our trained medical professionals, you may not even notice when they even happen.

How many appointments will I need?

Typically, the effects of BOTOX from Dr. Samson in New York City last up to three to four months. Therefore, the recommended treatment is once every three to four months. Appointments can be booked ahead of time, and a reoccurring treatment schedule can be planned for the optimal BOTOX results. 

How long until I see results?

Most patients in New York City report that their BOTOX results are visible within three to ten days of treatment, depending on the individual patient. You can see the maximum results of your treatment anywhere from ten to fourteen days after treatment. If you plan on having repeated BOTOX sessions, we recommend returning to Dr. Samson every four to six months to maintain optimal results.

Can I combine BOTOX with other procedures?

Once our patients realize how easy it is to receive BOTOX, the question often arises about combinations of treatments. Usually, other non-surgical treatments can be combined the day of or a week after to achieve outstanding results. Restylane or Juvéderm are popular combination techniques. If you are interested in what can work best for you with the combination of treatments, be sure to inquire in the consultation with Dr. Samson or his technician team. 

What are the risks associated with BOTOX?
