But despite the popularity over the better part of the last two decades, when it comes to Botox Mill Basin patients of New York Aesthetics and most other medical spas know little to nothing about it. When offering Botox Mill Basin physician, Dr. Michael Riskevich does his best to educate his patients as much as possible, yet many still don’t have a clue as to its effectiveness. To better educate you on the procedure, here are a few of the most important little-known facts about the procedure from the experts at New York Aesthetics.
· Botox Can Be Done Fast, Really Fast!
In years past, when it came to Botox Mill Basin physician, Dr. Michael Riskevich would refer to it as the ultimate lunch break procedure, as patients could have procedures completed within the hour provided for most lunch breaks. And in some cases, even half an hour! Plus, because of its minimally-invasive nature, there were never any deep injections that required a drastic recovery period so patients could continue with their daily activities immediately after work.
· The Statistics for How Many Patients are Getting Botox are Staggering
As we previously stated, Botox is by far the most popular and highly in-demand cosmetic enhancement procedure available today. One of the biggest changes to the Botox landscape has been the addition of a number of different men to the patient list for the procedure – more and more men are having Botox done than ever before in its history. According to some stats, the number of men getting Botox injections performed has risen by upwards of 330% in the past two decades or so.
· Botox for Hyperhidrosis
One of the most interestingly new discoveries of Botox has been the vast number of off-label uses that there are for the compound. One of the most common sides uses for Botox has got to be for the treatment of excessive underarm and body sweating. Many patients suffer from this condition known as hyperhidrosis, and when Botox is injected into their sweat glands, it temporarily paralyzes the nerves responsible for making you sweat.
· Botox Isn’t Permanent
This is thought to be the most important benefit of many who have undergone Botox treatment, but it is far from a permanent procedure. In fact, each session of Botox generally only lasts a few months, and at the longest 6 months. This is a huge benefit, as if a patient is unhappy with their results, they can simply wait a few months and try again.
