Botox® is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the United States and for good reason. Botox requires no downtime, but temporarily reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles to give you a youthful look. Dr. Rachel R. Kushner Dermatology is a member of the Botox® Cosmetic Physicians’ Network, and the team consists of medical aesthetic specialists with detailed knowledge of facial anatomy. They use this knowledge and their vast experience to expertly apply Botox to residents of the Franklin Square and Farmingdale, New York, areas.

Botox is a purified neurotoxin that, when injected into key locations of your facial anatomy, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The toxin temporarily halts the muscle activity that makes creases when you smile, frown, or look inquisitive.
Botox is well-studied, with more than 500 studies supporting its safety and efficacy, and is in use in 98 countries.
Botox is effective in areas that commonly show signs of aging. The injections are FDA-approved for the following.
Your Dr. Rachel R. Kushner Dermatology provider applies injections precisely, so you look refreshed and softer, but completely natural. Botox treatments may be combined with dermal filler injections to get you an overall smooth and youthful look.
Botox is a temporary solution for wrinkles and lines. It smooths your skin for three to four months, depending on how your body reacts and the area treated. You can get on a treatment schedule at Dr. Rachel R. Kushner Dermatology to maintain your look for the long-term, however. Retreatments are always possible.
The initial effects of Botox appear in 24-48 hours, but optimal results may take up to a week to appear.
Botox application does require a needle, so you will feel a pinch with each injection. The needles are very tiny, and the procedure is quick. Most people have the procedure without any anesthetic, but if you’re concerned about sensation, talk to your provider about using ice or a topical cream to numb injection sites.
Botox injections are a quick procedure that requires no downtime. You can go back to work or other daily activities right after your appointment. Many people schedule Botox injections during their lunch hour and go right back to the office afterward. You may experience slight bruising or redness at the injection sites, but these effects fade quickly, and you can cover them with makeup.
I've been a patient of Dr. Kushner for years now, but I just visited the Farmingdale office for the first time. I had an amazing experience: the office is clean, crisp, and brightly lit. The office staff are friendly and helpful. My wait was negligible and as always, Dr. Kushner addressed my issue in a professional and efficient manner. Highly recommend
I love the accommodations and the heart felt care this office provides there patients. I have a very hectic work and mom schedule and they have always been able to work around my schedule. (Especially weekend office hours) On my most stressfull days with my illness they have always attended with kindness and concern for my care. Pharmacies have always been called the minute you are done with your office visit. Which shows me a prompt and responsible treatment they provide to there patients.
Dr Kushner has always been kind, dedicated and a fantastic doctor. I wouldn’t go anywhere else I took my husband who is in a wheelchair and cannot walk for a small procedure. Dr Kushner was patient and total professional with him Highly recommend Dr Kushner
The lady at the front desk, as well at the PA/MA were so great! I was very pleased with the PA, she was so nice, very honest and professional, specially in this time and date we need more medical professionals like her. I love your practice so much that I brought my daughter there, and made an appointment for my mother too who lives in Queens. Keep up the good work!
