Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is a nonsurgical cosmetic treatment that is proven effective in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Botox is made from botulinum, a neurotoxin known to cause paralysis in large doses. The treatment is perfectly safe, however, because it’s used in very small amounts.

Why Should I Get Botox?

You don’t need widespread or extremely deep wrinkles before getting Botox. Experts agree: Botox works on very fine lines etched on your skin, and you can continue using Botox for prevention of deep wrinkles. If you’re tired of seeing wrinkles every day and want Botox, speak with the team at Dermatology Associates of Central NJ.

How Does Botox Work?

A small and precise injection of Botox prevents signals from your nerve cells from reaching your muscles, keeping them from contracting and eventually causing those fine lines and wrinkles. You still have full control of your muscles, however.

Botox is a successful and therapeutic solution to muscles that contract when you make facial expressions. After a time, lines and wrinkles develop when the skin doesn’t fully recover from years of these contractions.

What Happens During My Botox Appointment?

During your appointment, the doctor marks where the injections go on your face. Ice at the spot of injection helps numb the skin like a local anesthetic. The doctor inserts a very thin, small needle into the area being treated. You might feel some very mild discomfort from the injection or no pain at all.

After your treatment is over, you may notice small bumps where the injections were, but those go away very quickly. Your provider at Dermatology Associates of Central NJ explains in detail what you can expect during and after your treatment.

How Long Do the Results of Botox Last?

Botox results aren’t instant, and sometimes you might need more than one treatment. Two weeks might pass before you see the effects of a session. Botox treatments continue working for up to six months, however. The skilled group at Dermatology Associates of Central NJ provides specific details for your treatment plan, including how many visits you should expect.

If you’re ready for a rejuvenated and youthful expression, don’t delay in contacting Dermatology Associates of Central NJ to book your appointment online or by phone at any of their three locations.
