What do you do when your Botox treatment migrates to the incorrect area and causes drooping eyelids? You consult one of New York Magazine’s1 top dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons, Dr. Cameron Rokhsar. He is a sought-after dermatologist serving patients throughout Manhattan, Long Island, and NYC and has helped many reverse the effects of a botched Botox treatment.
While, in the hands of an experienced, board-certified dermatologist, Botox injections can eliminate the effects of aging, such as wrinkles and fine lines. It can also cause some unsightly complications, especially when injected by an inexperienced injector2.
An example of such is when your treatment is meant to soften frown lines and wrinkles on your forehead, but instead, your injector gets the injection location wrong. Resulting in the botulinum toxin type A migrating to your eyelid muscles, causing Botox-induced eyelid ptosis3.
Dr. Rokhsar has trained many physicians on Botox injection techniques. He is one of the best dermatologists to consult with if you are unhappy with the results from your previous treatment provider.
He sees 10 or more patients daily for Botox treatment, with some of his patients presenting with:
These are all signs of botched neurotoxin treatment. Fortunately, in some cases, Dr. Rokhsar can reverse the effects of botched treatment for patients throughout Manhattan, Long Island, and the New York area.
Dr. Cameron Rokhsar believes that cosmetic dermatology should boost self-confidence and not take away from it. Patients are treated like family, with patient safety and high quality of care at the top of his priority list.
He confidently approaches botched treatment with the intent to support his patient as best as possible. While in most cases it is advisable to wait it out, there are certain instances where treatment can reverse the unsightly outcome, such as droopy eyelids due to incorrect treatment that can be treated with certain eye drops.
FDA-approved Upneeq4 eye drops stimulate eyelid muscle contractions thanks to oxymetazoline, an alpha-adrenergic agonist that triggers the levator palpebrae muscle. The effects of the eye drops last about 6 hours and can be used as an interim solution for 3-4 months until Botox wears off. There are other eye drops that Dr. Rokhsar may prescribe to reverse the droopy effects of Botox for eyelid drooping. Dr Rokhsar may also be able to fix the bad outcomes you have by placing the injection in precise anatomic areas to alleviate your bad outcome.
You cannot go wrong with scheduling an appointment with Dr. Cameron Rokhsar to help you find the best way forward after receiving botched Botox treatment elsewhere. He is known for his patient-centered care that focuses on helping patients realize their desired results. Give his office a call today.
