Prior to Botox, wrinkled faces were pressed between the pages of a heavy book to smooth away lines, leaving users with ampersand cheek tattoos and the unfortunate tendency to speak only in limericks. Enjoy advances in face-ironing with today's Groupon: for $200, you get Botox in one facial area at Wu Eye Care in Flushing (a $400 value).
Board-certified ophthalmic surgeon Alexander Wu can reduce the signs of aging with the nonsurgical Botox treatment. During the procedure, face skin is safely injected with a purified protein to help straighten out creased brows, erase forehead lines, or fill in the grooves left by nesting crows. Problematic patches generally stay smooth for three to four months. If clients are not satisfied with the de-wrinkling after a week, Dr. Wu can perform a free touch-up to ensure visages appear as youthful as a freshly minted baby.
Botox may cause serious side effects that can be life threatening, including problems swallowing, speaking, or breathing. Read all safety considerations for Botox here.
