Botox Cosmetic in Millburn, NJ

Crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, fine lines under the eyes –these are the common signs of aging. While we may not be able to stop the clock, we can certainly slow it down –thanks to modern medicine, particularly, neuromodulators such as Botox, Xeomin, Dysport and Jeuveau.

Botox is in the frontline of anti-wrinkle treatments and, along with the other neuromodulators offered at Millburn Laser Center in New Jersey, can effectively reduce the onset of fine lines, producing an appearance that is not only fresh and youthful, but also natural-looking.

What Does Botox Treat?

As a cosmetic application, neuromodulators like Botox are used to improve the appearance of superficial wrinkles and fine lines that can be caused by repeated facial expressions. For example, wrinkles caused by smiling, squinting and frowning can be effectively treated using Botox.

Specifically, these are the areas where neuromodulators can be injected:

· Frown lines (Glabella)
· Crow’s feet (Lateral Orbital Lines)
· Bunny lines (Transverse nasal)
· Smoker’s lines (Perioral Lines)
· Forehead lines/horizontal forehead creases (Frontalis Muscle)
· Marionette lines (Depressor Anguli Oris / Trangularis Muscles)
· Chin “dents” (Mentalis Dysfunction)
· Brow lift – Botox create a lifting effect
· Neck wrinkles

Additionally, they can be used to slim the jawline (masseter reduction) and for Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) in the following areas: armpits, palms and the soles of the feet.

What are Neuromodulators?

Botox is the most recognizable neuromodulator. Botox is the brand name of a drug safely derived from the bacterium Clostridium. When used for cosmetic purposes, Botox injections can reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles.

Unlike dermal fillers, Botox and other neuromodulators work by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles. Since the injected muscle can no longer contract, this causes wrinkles to soften and relax.

Botox Alternatives

Botulinum type A injections are the most popular cosmetic procedures performed around the country, benefitting millions in battling wrinkles and rejuvenating their faces. While Botox is the most common toxin used in anti-wrinkle injections, other effective neuromodulators include:

Dysport

(abobotulinumtoxinA)

Jeuveau

(prabotulinumtoxinA)

Xeomin

(incobotulinumtoxinA)

All containing the same active ingredient (botulinum toxin type A), these injectables are designed for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabella lines. The main difference lies in their formulation, which would affect the dosage administered, how the product spreads in the injected site and how immediate a patient will see results.

Which of these anti-wrinkle treatments is best for you will depend on your goals, facial anatomy and your doctor’s recommendation.

What To Expect From
an Injectable Procedure?

1

Before the procedure, the areas to be injected are cleansed with a non-alcohol cleanser.

2

The neuromodulator is injected using an ultra-fine needle into specific muscles.

3

Only minor discomfort will be experienced – some patient’s report a slight pressure or stinging sensation, while others don’t feel anything at all.

4

3-5 injections are usually given per muscle, depending on the toxin used and the extent of the lines in the area being treated.

Each treatment is customized according to your goals and needs. Your doctor will determine the appropriate treatment for the areas you wish to address.

Learn more about the Injectables treatment with Dr. Mautner.

The procedure takes about 10 minutes to perform and it takes about 7 days to take full effect. Patients are advised to not rub or massage the treated areas for 24 hours to prevent the toxin from spreading to different areas. And since the treatment requires minimal downtime, patients can also return to their normal activities after the procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Is Botox Safe?

A: Yes! In 2002, the FDA approved Botox as a temporary aesthetic treatment for moderate to severe frown lines. It also rapidly became one of the world’s most recognized brands, approved for use in 98 countries. It has proven to be a successful treatment when dosage and frequency are considered, and of course, performed by an experienced injector, like our aesthetic experts at Millburn Laser Center. It’s important to always receive Botox treatments from a medical practitioner. For the safest treatment and best results, you should never get injections at non-medical spas, parties, salons or someone’s home. Other neuromodulators such as Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau are all FDA-approved as well.

Q: How Long Do Results Last?

A: You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, but it can take up to 2 weeks for final results. The effects from neuromodulators will approximately last between 3-5 months. A retreatment as the effects begin to wear off will help maintain your results. Also, with repeated treatments, Botox helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles from worsening and can prevent some from appearing altogether.

Q: Do Neuromodulators Treat All Wrinkles?

A: No, neuromodulators work best on wrinkles caused by repeated facial expressions. For example, Botox, Dysport, Xeomin or Jeuveau will work on wrinkles that deepen when facial muscles contract, such as crow’s feet and frown lines. Wrinkles produced by loose, sagging skin, like nasolabial folds, will not respond to Botox-type injections.

Q: Are There Any Side Effects?

A: While side effects are uncommon, some patients may experience minor complications for 2-3 days, such as:
·    Slight pain, swelling or bruising at the injection site
·    Headaches

Q: Will My Face Look And Feel Unnatural?

A: When treated by a licensed and trained injector like the board-certified cosmetic dermatologists at Millburn Laser Center who have expertise in facial anatomy, you can expect subtle, yet impressive results (no one would be able to tell you’ve had anything done). The goal is always to use enough toxin to improve fine lines and wrinkles, while still allowing patients to maintain their natural facial expressions. You’ll still look like you, just younger and refreshed.

Q: When Should I Start Getting Anti-Wrinkle Injections?

A: There is no right or wrong age to start receiving Botox, Dysport, Xeomin or Jeuveau treatments. What is important is that the patient should be evaluated by a licensed and trained doctor prior to treatment.
