BOTOX & Dysport

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.

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

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 and Dysport 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.


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.

Recovery from botox and dysport

If desired, ESK Manhattan clients can apply ice to their face after the procedure to reduce any unwanted swelling. Please note that the treatment area should not be touched, massaged or disturbed in any way for at least 24 hours after the injections. Exercise and any rigorous movement should also be avoided for this amount of time, as should lying flat on one’s back. Dr. Kwak will follow up with patients after several months and if necessary, he may recommend additional treatments in order to maintain the client’s outstanding results.
