In addition to being a member of the Botox Cosmetic Physicians Network, Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg has been featured in many forms of media, hosts his own cosmetic-surgery radio show, and won Long Island Press' Best of Long Island 2010 Cosmetic Surgeon award. Dr. Greenberg performs a consultation with each patient before using his highly specific training to administer tiny, muscle-relaxing injections into wrinkle-causing areas while singing a lullaby in a rich baritone. The appointment lasts from 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the injection site. Botox treatments smooth moderate wrinkles and prevent further depth in wrinkling, leaving skin as sleek as a bobsled track doused in canola oil. Improvement may be observed within a few days, and results can last up to four months. Discomfort from the Botox treatment is minimal; the sensation could be likened to a pinprick or a momentary flashback to one's haircut in the '80s.
