Face the world with confidence

The relentless autographs of aging, gravity, time, stress and exposure to the elements eventually affect us all. However, some skin types are at greater risk of developing these unsightly wrinkles sooner rather than later. Fine lines, facial folds and furrows can wreak havoc on an otherwise attractive appearance, triggering self-consciousness and frustration. While genetics play a large role in determining the skin’s longevity, lifestyle choices such as smoking, tanning and diet can also determine how well our bodies mature.

Our New York Botox, Dysport, Xeomin are neurotoxins approved by the FDA for combatting the treacherous signs of aging. In use for over a decade in 75+ countries, they work by reducing activity in the muscles responsible for facial contractions such as smiling, laughing, squinting or frowning. Once these muscles relax, the skin is restored to its once smooth and youthful state, promoting a more rested, rejuvenated countenance that inspires self-confidence and joie de vivre.

Why should clients choose Botox NYC

At ESK, no two patients are considered alike. Dr. Kwak takes a highly individualized approach to facial injectables, carefully choosing the receptor sites based on each client’s unique anatomy rather than by a standardized generic chart. As a seasoned veteran of anti-aging techniques, Dr. Kwak performs his work with subtlety, precision and aesthetic sophistication, being ever careful to preserve spontaneity and flexibility in the facial expression. His results appear completely natural every time, and have earned him a following as among the best Botox injectors in NYC.

During your confidential consultation with Dr. Kwak, he will assess the best procedure for your goals and skin type. Together with the doctor, you will be able to review before and after photos of previous clients, discovering exactly what outcomes you find most appealing. Dr. Kwak will then outline a customized treatment plan that factors in your health, age, lifestyle and expectations. If the situation demands, the doctor will suggest additional procedures such as dermal fillers or a brow lift in order to comprehensively address all your anti-aging needs.

Get Started

Details of the Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin treatment

Before getting started, one of Dr. Kwak’s attentive assistants will apply ice to the injection sites in order to minimize discomfort. An alternative to this is for the patient to receive nitrous oxide, which will also lesson any unpleasant sensations. Next, a tiny needle is used to penetrate the carefully selected injection sites. The needle will feel like a quick pinprick that is in and out within milliseconds.


NYC Botox treatment is most effective for dynamic wrinkles such as the glabella folds between the eyebrows. The treatment takes around 10 minutes and may not require any downtime or recovery. Results can be visible within around 3-5 days, and may continue to impress for up to 4 months.


Dysport is highly effective for treating crows’ feet around the eyes, and takes just 10-20 minutes to administer. Results can be visible within 1-3 days. Injections should not be repeated for at least 3 months.


FDA-approved to address frown lines between the eyes, Xeomin is among the premier neurotoxins used for cosmetic purposes. Much like BOTOX and Dysport, Xeomin works by blocking transmissions to the nerves responsible for frown lines, giving patients a calmer and less wrinkled appearance.

Botox versus Dysport

Botox and Dysport are both neuromuscular modulators that are designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Botox is a better option:

  • If you wish to treat crow’s feet and frown lines
  • If you desire long-lasting results
  • If you want a solution that has a slower onset
  • If you wish to treat a focused area of the face

Dysport is a better option:

  • If you wish to treat glabellar lines
  • If you want a more body-friendly alternative
  • If you require a solution that has a faster onset
  • If you want to treat large parts of the face with a single injection

How many injections will I need?

The number of injections of Botox and Dysport depends on the following factors:

  • Extensiveness of the treatment
  • Areas to be treated
  • Size of the muscles to be treated

The Botox is of a thicker consistency compared to the Dysport and you will require more injections of Botox when compared to Dysport. It’s best to speak to the doctor at our NYC clinic for more information.

Recovery from botox and dysport

Post-treatment, patients may experience minor swelling, bleeding, bruising and pain in the treated areas of the skin. The bleeding and swelling will reduce within a few hours and the bruising and pain will take a few days to heal.

Both the Botox and Dysport are extremely skin-friendly and do not lead to infections and allergies. Dysport, in particular, generates lesser anti-bodies than Botox, making it extremely safe to use. However, if you have extremely sensitive skin, you may develop acne-like eruptions But don’t worry. Dr. Kwak will prescribe a strong antibiotic, which will help you recover quickly.

Post-treatment, patients must avoid using their facial muscles extensively for at least 24-48 hours. Recovery takes 2-3 days, after which patients can return to their daily schedule. Both the Botox and Dysport injectable last for a term of 3-4 months, after which you may need to return for another round of treatment. With greater care, the results of these injectable may last up to 6 months.

Botox and Dysport for men

Research shows that around 10% of all Botox and Dysport patients are men. If you are a man requiring help managing wrinkles, frown lines, glabellar lines and crow’s feet, then you are eligible for the Botox and Dysport treatment.

Considering how the structure of men and women’s body is different, the number of injections to be used, the quantity of injectable and frequency of the treatment will vary. At our New York center, we have years of experience providing cosmetic solutions for men.

Cost of Botox and Dysport treatment

Dysport injectable cost 10% less than Botox injectable. But, on the whole, both injectable are priced competitively between $300 and $900 per session. Ultimately, the cost of the treatment depends on many criteria such as:

  • Areas to be treated
  • Extensiveness of the treatment
  • Clinic visited
  • The expertise of the doctor
