Botox® is an effective wrinkle treatment that can help reduce the signs of aging by treating the underlying cause. As you age, your skin begins to lose collagen and elasticity, which causes the skin to sag and become less firm. This loss of collagen and elasticity causes fine lines and wrinkles to form around the mouth, eyes, and forehead. Environmental factors such as excess sun exposure and wind also can lead to the formation of facial wrinkles. Crow’s feet and facial folds may also be the result repeated facial muscle contractions, such as frowning, smiling, squinting, and more. Dr. Asaadi can help you reduce the appearance of wrinkles, crow’s feet, and frown lines with Botox® therapy.
Botox® Cosmetic is a cosmetic injectable that is designed to target the underlying causes of facial wrinkles, folds, crow’s feet, and other signs of aging. Botox® injections target areas of your face that have shown aging due to repeated muscle contractions from smiling or squinting over the years, genetics, or environmental factors. Botox® Cosmetic is designed to temporarily reduce the activity of these frequently used muscles, while filling and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.
Botox® has also been proven to reduce the frequency and severity of headaches for patients with chronic migraines. Botox® is an FDA-approved migraine treatment that can prevent headaches in patients suffering from chronic migraines. Botox® for migraines requires continuing treatments to reduce the frequency of migraines.
A Botox® procedure takes approximately 10-20 minutes to complete but may vary depending on the amount of Botox® injections needed and what you are having treated. A Botox® treatment can be tailored to best meet your individual goals. The amount of Botox® injections or sessions will be decided between you and Dr. Asaadi.

A Botox® consultation with our plastic surgeon will begin with an assessment of the area you wish to have treated. After evaluating frown lines or crow’s feet, Dr. Asaadi can create a customized Botox® treatment that can address the areas that you wish to target. Some patients choose to target multiple treatment areas at once, simultaneously smoothing wrinkles and lines around the mouth, eyes, and brow.
While Botox® is a long-lasting wrinkle treatment, continuing Botox® treatments are required to maintain Botox® results. The ideal Botox® candidate is a healthy man or woman who would like to treat moderate-to-severe wrinkles, crow’s feet, and frown lines. Botox® candidates must have realistic expectations with what Botox® can help them achieve. You are not eligible to receive Botox® if you have an allergy to botulinum toxin. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, have an infection in the treatment area, or other medical conditions, you are also not eligible for a Botox® procedure.
There is little to no downtime associated with Botox® injections, and the majority of patients are able to resume normal activity shortly after a Botox® procedure. Most patients will see Botox® results in 1-2 days following their Botox® treatment. You may also see continuing results in the days and weeks following your Botox® procedure. Dr. Asaadi is a highly skilled plastic surgeon offering Botox® in NYC and NJ to patients seeking a non-invasive wrinkle treatment. When Botox® is administered by a skilled plastic surgeon, you will experience natural-looking results that reduce the prominence of wrinkling without given you a frozen look.
It is important that you choose a skilled Botox® doctor who understands your individual anatomy, as every patient’s facial structure is different. Dr. Asaadi stresses the importance of choosing a qualified, experienced, and board-certified plastic surgeon when considering Botox®.
MicroBotox® is a non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatment that can restore smooth-looking skin around the brows, mid-face, chin, and neck. During MicroBotox® treatment, a small amount of Botox® is injected close to the surface of your skin to temporarily relax superficial facial muscles that contribute to wrinkling, furrows, and fine lines. MicroBotox® can achieve natural-looking results with virtually no downtime or recovery. Unlike traditional Botox® treatments, MicroBotox® can target the entire face. While MicroBotox® is non-surgical, it will not replace the results of facial surgery. However, patients can see natural-looking improvements to facial wrinkles and folds after undergoing MicroBotox® treatment.
Additional cosmetic injectables can be used in conjunction with MicroBotox® to further enhance skin texture and tone. Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers can be injected into areas of the face to enhance facial definition. Additionally, essential vitamins may be delivered with fillers using a microneedle to help improve the appearance of your skin.
MicroBotox® may also be utilized with platelet rich plasma therapy to enhance skin texture. During your PRP procedure, a blood sample is taken and your platelet rich plasma is isolated from your other blood cells. This PRP is then injected into the face along with MicroBotox®, cosmetic fillers, or vitamins for substantial results. Different laser and light based treatments, such as intense pulsed light therapy (IPL), may be used to further enhance skin texture and tone for a younger-looking complexion. Your plastic surgeon can combine these treatments with MicroBotox® to raise the brows, smooth facial creases, improve jawline definition, and reduce the appearance of neck bands.

Dear Dr. Asaadi,
I have always had bags under my eyes, but as I became older, they seemed to get worse. Every time I looked in the mirror, all I saw were those bags. At least once a day at work, someone would ask me if I was tired. So, when my daughter announced her engagement, I thought it was time to do something. I made an appointment with Dr. Asaadi to see what my options were. My surgery was scheduled for August of 2012.
I was scared and apprehensive, but it was the right decision. I feel like a new person. No one asks me anymore if I am tired and I don’t shy away from having my picture taken. Dr. Asaadi and his staff have been terrific, so caring and professional. I only took one week off from work, and the bruising was minimal.
I probably would still have the bags if my daughter didn’t get married.
But, I am so thankful I had the surgery. And I was the proud mother of the bride. - M.W.
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
I have known Dr. Asaadi for fifteen years. I first met him in my fifties. I look tired and worn out and looking for a more youthful appearance. In meeting Dr. Asaadi he presented a picture of a very sincere and up standing person.
He took the time to go over my goals and together we outlined what was needed. I had rhinoplasty and eye corrective surgery. Down time was minimal and the results perfect.
Several years later I had a face lift and again was completely satisfied.
Presently I am 69 years old looking way better than when I first met with him. Let me add that since my surgery Dr. Asaadi has maintained my youthful appearance by using injectable fillers. He is a true genius and a very honest person whom I highly recommend.
Also his staff is the best - A.E.
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
Just a short note to tell you how happy I am and to thank you for your wonderful work. As soon as I walked out the door from our first consultation, I had this “feeling” and I knew you were the one I could put 100% trust in. Thank you for your attention to detail, the care you’ve shown me, and your warm personality. I count myself luck to know you.
Thanks and all the best to you!
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
“I am so very grateful for the tummy tuck that Dr. Asaadi performed on me. Dr. Asaadi has proven to me to be a meticulous artist of the body. I felt that the office and staff compares to no other. It has been 5 years since my surgery, I am 42 years old and I am feeling and looking just as good if not better since surgery. I am more confident putting on my clothing, especially bathing suits. Dr. Asaadi gave me my belly back from 20 years ago (pre-babies)."
I not only feel better in the way in which my body looks, but most important it changed the way I view myself inside and out.
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
My name is Paula and about a month ago you gave me some botox injections. I had recently finished nine months of very tough treatment for a stage III breast cancer and I was neither feeling nor looking my best. My hair had just begun to grow but I still was showing way too much forehead for my comfort zone so I thought perhaps a little botox would give me a "lift".
Well, I cannot say enough about my results. I feel fantastic about the way my skin looks. In fact, the other evening I bumped into some friends at a restaurant. The first thing they said to me was "your skin looks fabulous! Even better than before your diagnosis." Now that's amazing. Since seeing you, I have received numerous compliments about how alive I look. Well, I do have a great attitude but I have to say that your skillful work has really made me feel confident.
Thank you so much for your hard work and dedication. I wish all women who have been through treatment could feel as good as I feel. Thank you Dr. Asaadi.
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
“After 10 years of hearing comments about how tired I appeared, I decided that the time had come for me to take action which required more than just getting extra sleep!!!
I did my research and decided that Dr. Asaadi was the best choice upon seeing the results of past patients and the unique technique that he uses.
Now, close to two years later, I couldn't be happier! Not only do I look 10 years younger, but I now feel refreshed and vibrant. No more comments about how tired I appear.
This surgery not only restored my youth, but it greatly improved my confidence level. As a salesperson and a single girl, this is incredibly Important!!! Whereas prior to the surgery, I couldn't even think about walking out the door without makeup, now I am completely comfortable with it. No more trying to conceal or detract attention from the severe bags under my eyes!!! Friends and relatives, and even sometimes I, cannot believe the difference this surgery has made! One of the best parts is that it looks incredibly natural. No one would ever know I had anything done unless I had told them. A yearlong spa getaway would not have produced such results!"
It was hands down the best money I ever spent!!!!! I feel like I'm a walking billboard for Blepharoplasty.
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
“Once I decided to undergo a tummy tuck procedure, I knew my appearance would change for the better. What I did not anticipate is what a profound effect the results would have on my overall way of life. Along with giving me the body I wanted, the transformation gave me a great sense of confidence, reassurance, and security with myself. I now walk upright and confident, as opposed to slouched and submissive. I enjoy shopping for clothes and wearing two piece bathing suits on the beach.
If anyone is contemplating having this procedure done, I strongly encourage them to do so."
Thanks to Dr. Asaadi I have the perfect body and a better life. - CT
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
Thank you - the phrase is simple and the words are few, but behind them lies a world of appreciation. Special people like you make the world a brighter place.
Thank you for helping me get better. Also to improve day by day my special future. I pray God bless your hands to help the life of others.
On May 12, 2010 Dr. Asaadi performed a bilateral reduction mammoplasty, CORE AbdominoplastySM, repair of diastasis recti, VASER® LipoSelection of the back, flanks, upper inner thighs, pubic area, lateral chest walls, and a small area of the upper arms. I was very sore for the first week, but after that I could see improvement every couple of days. The more I walked the better and stronger I felt.
In exactly six weeks after the surgery I went with my daughter, son-in-law, and their 13 month old son to a destination wedding feeling great. My daughter was nervous that I wouldn’t be able to take care of the baby like I needed to ( her and her husband were in the wedding), but I had so much more energy and strength than I did in years. I felt so wonderful in my new clothes, and I can’t begin to express how many compliments I received.....especially in my “Tankini”!!!
I now look forward to getting up in the morning and picking out a nice fitting outfit for the day, and not some loose fitting shirt and baggy pants. Thank you, Dr. Asaadi....you gave me my self-confidence back!!!!”
Thank you, Dr. Asaadi....you gave me my self-confidence back!!!!”
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
Thank you for all your professionalism and time spent going over the procedure. I am pleased thus far; I can only imagine my gratitude in the months ahead, as I see my nose transforming. I put my face in the hands of a true sculptor and have nothing but praise and recommendation. Your staff are a wonderful representation of your reputation on being a true caring practice. Many Thanks.
