Do you have crow’s feet, a lined forehead, or frown furrows?  Sidney Adler DDS, MAGD and Beth Berson DDS can provide you with facial and smile enhancement treatments to help smooth out your skin and give you a healthier, more youthful appearance to compliment your beautiful smile.  We invite you to call Riverdale Oral Health and Implant Center at 718-548-3353 to learn more about facial and smile enhancement in Riverdale, New York, and schedule your appointment with our skilled doctors.

Our practice offers a number of facial injectables to help improve your appearance, from BOTOX® and related products to dermal fillers.  These treatments work to smooth out the skin by paralyzing the underlying muscles.  These procedures only take a few minutes and do not require any anesthetic.  Results from BOTOX and similar products typically take 3-7 days to take full effect, lasting up to 6 months, while results from dermal fillers have been known to last for as long as a year!

Prior to receiving a facial or smile enhancement treatment, we recommend that you:

  • Avoid alcohol for 1 week before your treatment
  • Do not take aspirin or anti-inflammatory medicines for two weeks before your treatment.

You may experience bruising and mild discomfort at the injection site, headaches, and drooping eyelids as a side effect of these treatments.  Do not worry – these side effects will pass within 3 weeks.

Do not rub the treated area for 12 hours following your injection, and do not lie down for 3-4 hours following your treatment, as drooping often occurs when BOTOX moves around.
