Your Botox Injections

NYC Botox injections take just about 5 minutes at Dr. Rokhsar’s office. With the use of the finest needle ordered especially to minimize pain, our office does not need to use numbing cream, although available if need be. Dr. Rokhsar administers precise amounts of BOTOX Cosmetic into the treatment area, temporarily paralyzing the muscles responsible for wrinkles. Once relaxed, wrinkles are softened and your skin becomes smoother. Botox can be combined with other fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm for a liquid facelift.

How Much Does Botox Cost?



How Does Botox Compare To A Facelift?

There are a number of key differences between Botox when used to combat wrinkles, and other cosmetic options available on the market today—both surgical and non-surgical. First and foremost, Botox injections2 are considerably less expensive than surgical facelift procedures. The results are also visible far more quickly3 than in surgical procedures. There may be some redness or bruising after a Botox injection, but those effects fade quickly. In comparison, surgical facelift procedures require weeks of recovery time.

Botox For Facial Reshaping in NYC

Botox is safely used to change the silhouette of the face and creates a more balanced face shape. Some people are unhappy with the shape of their faces if it’s very round and lacks proportion. Facial roundness can be genetic or due to habits such as clenching the jaw or teeth grinding during sleep. Over time, this sustained muscle contraction of the Masseter muscle causes a thickened jawline and a more masculine, rough-looking facial appearance.

Genetically, a round face is predominately found in Asian cultures, making the treat sought after by many Asian women. Leading NYC dermatologist Dr. Rokhsar injects the Masseter muscle with Botox®, causing relaxation of the muscle. The muscle atrophies and becomes less prominent, creating a thinner appearance while sharpening the cheekbones, narrowing the jawbone, and creating a more feminine facial profile.

Areas Treatable By Botox

Dr. Rokhsar’s Botox injections4 don’t prevent your facial muscles from moving, but rather create natural, desirable results. His technique inhibits unnecessary muscle contractions caused by everyday activities such as squinting, smiling, frowning, and focusing. The repetitive expressions result in fine lines and wrinkles which over time begin to sag and turn into deeper, more difficult to treat wrinkles. With Botox in NYC, he treats the following concerns at his Manhattan office.


Crow’s Feet: A moderate dose of Botox is used to relax crow’s feet around the eyes, offering a more rested and youthful appearance.

Reshape The Jaw: Botox can be used to reshape the jawline by injecting it into the Masseters (chewing muscles), which relaxes and weakens them. Once the muscles relax, they shrink in size along with the mandible (jaw bone). For many patients, this change can be visibly dramatic.

Excessive Sweating: Botox for Hyperhidrosis gives New York patients of Dr. Rokhsar less to sweat about. Once injected into the armpit, Botox blocks sweat glands responsible for producing excess sweat. Those suffering from hyperhidrosis may experience excess sweating of the arms, groin, palms, face, or feet.


Botox For Feet: People request Botox injections in the feet for either excessive sweating or muscle spasms related to high heels.

Botox For Hands: Many people suffer from excessive sweating in the hands, also known as hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis affects one in five people, a condition that causes a person to perspire far beyond their body’s normal requirements to maintain a healthy temperature. This disorder causes excessive, noticeable sweating from the hands, feet, groin, and under the arms. Dr. Rokhsar’s NYC Botox injections reduce excessive sweating of the hands.

Botox FAQ

How does Botox work?

Botox injections work by interrupting the communication between nerves that trigger micro-muscular facial movements. These unnecessary facial movements are responsible for causing fine lines and wrinkles.

What happens during treatment?

Botox is injected with a tiny needle directly and precisely into the muscle that causes moderate to severe fine lines and wrinkles. It is an in-office treatment that lasts 15 to 20 minutes, making it a procedure that can be done during your lunch break. Dr. Rokhsar is a fellowship-trained dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon, which makes him an expert on wrinkle treatments and skin smoothing procedures.

How does Botox Cosmetic compare to other options?

Compared to other aesthetic treatment options, Botox Cosmetic is relatively inexpensive. According to a survey by The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, it’s one of the least costly facial aesthetic procedures. And when you consider the difference it can make in the appearance of the moderate to severe frown lines between your brows, you may find Botox Cosmetic to be a great way to invest in yourself.

What does Botox treat?

Botox Cosmetic treats the cause of these frown lines between the brows by reducing the muscle contractions that cause the lines to form over time. Botox Cosmetic is the only FDA-approved treatment for the temporary improvement of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows. If you’re looking for something for that area be sure to talk to Dr. Rokhsar.

How soon will I see a difference?

You can expect to see results within days after your treatment. The appearance of the area between your brows may continue to improve for up to a week. By day 30 in a patient clinical study, 89 percent of patients judged the severity of their frown lines between their brows as moderate or better.

What kind of results can I expect?

Visible results can last up to four months. After that, you may be ready to return for follow-up treatment. Other side effects include pain and redness where the medicine is injected, pain in the face, and muscle weakness. These effects generally occur within the first week and usually go away on their own.

What are the possible side effects of getting Botox® for sweaty palms and hands?

Due to the skin’s sensitivity to the hands, the procedure can be somewhat uncomfortable. Dr. Rokhsar will administer a topical anesthetic to ensure a more comfortable procedure. It has been very successful; however, there may be a slight weakness of the hand afterward.

What are the benefits of the microdroplet precision technique?

The microdroplet technique uses very small amounts of botox to achieve very natural results. The microdroplet technique can be used in the glabella (frown lines) forehead lines, crow’s feet, upper lip lines, necklines, and jawlines.

It is generally viewed as underdosing. So even though results may look subtle, longevity may be compromised.

What type of numbing is done prior to the injections and what is done right after the injection?

Our practice has refined the idea of pain control for Botox injections. First, we use the smallest needles available. Our very expensive needles which we purchase from Japan, are literally the size of a hair. The smaller the needle translates into less pain. Second, we use a colder roller to numb and relax the muscle. This way, you will barely feel the needle prick. Lastly, we can use numbing cream. But most of our patients tell us that our cold roller technique is better than any numbing cream.

Why is it better to visit a cosmetic dermatologist than a plastic surgeon, PA, nurse, internist, etc for Botox injections?

In cosmetic dermatology, we perform Botox injections every day on five to ten patients. It is not something we do casually. This is our specialty! Studies establishing the protocols for Botox injections were conducted by dermatologists. You wouldn’t go to a dermatologist for toothache, so why would you go to your dentist for Botox injections? If you wouldn’t go to your dermatologist for flu-like symptoms, you should think twice before seeing an internist for Botox injections.

Additionally, beware of med spas that offer Botox injections by PAs and nurses. Physician Assistant (PA) programs are two years long and do not include residency training. Physician Assistants are supposed to be directly supervised by doctors. There is unfortunately a lack of enforcement of the rules by state boards. I have personally had to correct all sorts of issues in patients who had Botox administered by a non-dermatologist.

How many units of Botox for the forehead?

The recommended number of Botox units for the forehead varies among practitioners and clinics, but the average range is between 10 to 30 units. The manufacturer of Botox Cosmetic, Allergan, recommends a total of 20 units of Botox for forehead lines. Some practitioners may inject up to 30 units for optimal results. The number of units needed can vary depending on individual factors such as muscle strength and the severity of wrinkles. Dr. Cameron Rokhsar is a double board-certified Dermatologist and Dermatologic Surgeon and trains other doctors how to properly inject Botox and many other injectables. Dr. Rokhsar teaches the Cosmetic Dermatology Clinic at Mt Sinai Hospital. During a visit with him, he will assess your goals and recommend the appropriate amount of Botox needed to achieve your desired results.

How many units of Botox for lip flip?

The number of units of Botox required for a lip flip can vary depending on individual anatomy, desired results, and the brand of botulinum toxin type A being administered. However, in general, it appears that most people require between 4 and 8 units of Botox for a lip flip procedure. In some situations the procedure can be done with as little as 2 units of Botox while others recommend up to 12 units for a complete lip flip. Dr. Rokhsar is an expert injector and will determine the appropriate brand and amount of Botox needed to achieve your desired results.

How long does Botox take to work?

The effects of Botox injections can be seen as early as 1 to 3 days after treatment, with full results becoming visible within 10 to 14 days. However, in some situations it can take up to 2 weeks for the full effects to be seen, depending on the area being treated and the amount of Botox used. The duration of the effects of Botox can vary depending on the area being treated, but the average duration for glabella lines (the lines between the brows), forehead lines, and lateral crow’s feet is approximately 3 to 4 months.

Not everyone will have visible results or relief from symptoms after receiving Botox treatment, and the effect may also depend on factors such as dosage of the injection and physical activity after treatment. Botox is typically administered using a small needle with only minor discomfort and the procedure usually takes only a few minutes. Some immediate side effects that patients may experience include redness and swelling at the injection site, which typically dissipates within 10-15 minutes after treatment.

How long does Botox last?

Botox injections typically last between 3 to 4 months, but this can vary depending on factors such as age, sex, and the individual’s unique anatomy and muscle strength. It is not uncommon for first-timers to notice that the effects may not last as long initially but may last longer after the second treatment. Regular Botox treatments can also affect how long the effects last, as it may require fewer treatments over time to achieve the same results. In some cases, the effects of Botox may last up to 6 months or as short as 2 months. It typically takes 2 weeks for the Botox to fully set in, after which the effects can last anywhere between 3 to 6 months. Patients can usually see the effects of Botox within 3 to 4 days after injection, but this may also vary depending on the individual.
