Long Island Plastic Surgeon Dr. Charlotte Rhee Educates Patients on Safe, Effective BOTOX Treatments

Long Island Plastic Surgeon Dr. Charlotte Ann Rhee stresses the importance of receiving BOTOX® treatments from board-certified doctors, to ensure that patients get the results they want safely.

BOTOX® is the most common non-surgical cosmetic procedure performed in the United States, and the treatment's popularity is continuing to grow. With so many practices offering the cosmetic treatment, it's important for patients to make sure that they're getting it from a reputable source, stresses Long Island plastic surgeon Dr. Charlotte Ann Rhee.

For those looking to eliminate facial wrinkles and lines without having to resort to surgery, BOTOX® provides the perfect solution. This safe, simple, nonsurgical treatment diminishes wrinkles by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles, making them unable to contract. This smoothes out the skin's folds and furrows, decreasing the appearance of worry lines, horizontal forehead wrinkles and crow's feet.

BOTOX® also helps improve the look of marionette lines, bunny lines around the sides of the nose and the dreaded "11s", which are creases between the eyebrows. In addition to smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles, BOTOX® injections are used for treating migraine headaches, muscle spasms, excessive sweating, and chronic back or jaw pain.

Dr. Rhee has extensive experience in administering BOTOX® at her state-of-the-art facility in Huntington Station. It's vital that patients receive BOTOX® injections from a board-certified plastic surgeon for their safety as well as to achieve the results they seek without suffering any unwanted adverse side effects.

It's especially important for patients to research and make sure that they're getting BOTOX® injections from an accredited plastic surgeon, as the FDA recently announced that more than 350 doctors and nurse practitioners may be injecting patients with a fake BOTOX® -like product, while claiming that it is the real thing.

Unapproved, counterfeit injectables put patients' health at risk, since they can lead to infections, facial slacking and drooping, serious allergic reactions and other complications. Unlicensed plastic surgeons also pose a risk, as they are not properly trained in BOTOX® treatments and can inject the neurotoxin incorrectly, causing botched results. However, when administered by a licensed, board-certified plastic surgeon, BOTOX® can safely and effectively create beautiful results.
