Why it’s important to select a surgeon who knows precisely where to target Botox injections
In the wrong or inexperienced hands, Botox can be dangerous. So in addition to seeking a doctor who is trained and qualified in plastic surgery, you should always make sure that your physician is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and has significant experience administering/injecting Botox and other facial fillers.

Why Dr. DeLuca personally administers all Botox injections
- Because even though each 15 minute treatment often appears relatively simple compared to say, nose surgery, injecting BOTOX safely, correctly and effectively actually requires a great deal of medical training and experience on the part of the doctor.
- Because Dr. DeLuca believes that patients who see him for ‘minimally invasive’ procedures like Botox require just as much personalized attention and care as those seeing him for cosmetic surgery.
There are 43 individual muscles in your face, and pinpointing the exact spot where the treatment should be administered is vitally important to achieve optimum results.
Why Dr. DeLuca only uses fresh Botox
The fresher the Botox, the more consistent and long-lasting its effects will be. Not all Botox is stored or used equally. So in order to ensure the most consistent and long-lasting results possible for his patients,
- Each patient receives single-use vials only.
- The botox solution is mixed fresh during your appointment (not all surgeons do this since it’s cheaper to reuse un-used product).
In most patients (especially those new to the treatment), Botox lasts between 3-4 months. That said, it’s is possibile for some patients to achieve results that last up to 6, 9 or even 12 months after several years of consistent and properly-administered use of the product (which was the topic of a blog post by Dr. DeLuca titled: How long does Botox last and can it last longer?)

How Dr. DeLuca Uses Botox to Treat Fine Lines & Wrinkles
Using a very thin needle, Dr. DeLuca will gently inject small amounts of BOTOX into very specific muscles. He carefully targets only wrinkle-inducing muscles so that your natural facial expression are preserved.
The total length of the treatment is very short, usually around 15 minutes. Many factors influence the actual number of injections you will need, including genetics, your individual facial features and the extent of your wrinkling. Minor creases such as crow’s feet, for example, usually require about three injections, while deep furrows above your brow can require five or more.
The usual length of time it takes to see the full results is usually around one week, but you may start seeing differences within a few days. The effects of BOTOX usually last about three to four months, with your muscle reactions and wrinkles returning as the paralyzing effect of the treatment wears off.
Is Botox the right anti-wrinkle treatment for you?
Botox won’t fix all types of wrinkle issues. For example, while Botox can help minimize under-eye wrinkles, it can’t repair the deep wrinkles caused by over-exposure to the sun. Also important to keep in mind is the fact that Botox works differently on different skin thicknesses and types. Some skin types takes very well to Botox while others tend to respond less dramatically to it’s wrinkle-reducing properties.
That said, there’s a reason why Botox is the most popular non-surgical alternative to full or mini facelift surgery. Simply put, it’s the safest and most effective treatment options for smoothing out the following wrinkle-prone areas:
- Crows feet (corners of the eyes)
- Frown lines (between the eyebrows)
- Forehead wrinkles & furrows
A qualified Albany plastic surgeon like Dr. DeLuca is the best person to evaluate the appropriateness of Botox for you especially since another facial filler (like Juvederm or Sculptra) may, in fact, be better at treating the wrinkles you wish to minimize (which happens quite regularly after a closer inspection and discussion of cosmetic goals). Having personally administered 1,000′s of injections of Juvederm, Restylane, Sculptra, Radiesse and Botox, Dr. DeLuca is an expert at determining which facial filler is best for you.

Historically, when someone finds an amazing Plastic Surgeon they tend to keep him/her to themselves. That is not the case with me. I searched for a very long time, both in and out of the Capital District to find a physician who was compassionate, honest, progressive, not aggressive and someone who had amazing surgical techniques and an artful eye for creating the appearance of natural beauty.
I have been a patient of Dr. DeLuca’s for many years and I have continued to be pleased with everything he has helped me with. Over the years I have made many referrals to Dr. DeLuca. Each and everyone one of those referrals felt that Dr. DeLuca far exceeded their expectations. I don’t think it gets much better than that!!
