Skin Care

By Tallulah Dumonde

It happens to all of us. On a random day, sometime into your mid 30s. Usually you’re brushing your teeth. Sometimes you’re plucking a stray hair under your perfectly arched brows. And then you see them. At first you think it’s an illusion. You change your expression, trying to relax, but relaxation eludes you, as the realization comes: you’ve got 11’s.

“11’s” are those pesky lines between your eyebrows, and they’re one of the first signs of aging for most of us.

Dr. George Lefkovits, whose Upper East Side office services and tends to some of the highest profile clients in the country, has this to say, “You never want people to look at you and (know) you’ve had Botox…or any other work. You want them to look at you and think ‘She looks great. I wonder if…'”

And that’s exactly what happened to me.

Within two days after having my “11’s” injected with Botox, I was feeling a lift in my brow area, and within about four days I noticed a substantial change. One of the best things about this procedure is that it actually helps lift your brows-just a touch. It’s painless and the actual time it takes is no more than 10 minutes, though I would estimate 5 would be more accurate. There’s no recovery time. An ice pack can help reduce or eliminate swelling or discoloration, and the side effects are almost nil.

When you’re tired of fighting the inevitable (and even more tired of seeing those furrows in your brow), make your appointment with Dr Lefkovits. His office is located at 9 East 62nd St. Phone for appointments at (212) 750-9494 or visit http://www.drlefkovits.com/.
