Benefits of BOTOX
Botox can treat various skin conditions and help reverse the signs of aging. From crow’s feet to wrinkles, Botox can remedy these skin issues by relaxing the muscles in your face.
Below are the most common skin issues we treat with Botox.
Crow’s feet are the wrinkles that appear at the edges of your eyes. These wrinkles are a common sign of aging and develop from excessive and repetitive facial expressions. This is due to the loss of collagen and tissue elasticity, which causes your skin to wrinkle.
As we age, our skin becomes thinner, which causes more wrinkles. Wrinkles are inevitable with age and result from repeating the same facial expressions. Frown lines form between the eyebrows and on the forehead. Sun exposure, stress, and smoking also cause frown lines.
Thin lips can make your face look unbalanced. If you’re dissatisfied with your thin lips, Botox injections can relax the muscles above the upper lip and cause the lip to move upward. This causes the lip to look more voluminous.
The wrinkle lines formed when you scrunch your nose are referred to as bunny lines. Bunny lines appear on and around the nose and fan out toward the eyes. These lines are one of the more prominent signs of aging, but Botox can remedy them.
How Much Does BOTOX Cost in NJ?
Botox injections in Morristown, NJ, cost anywhere from $10 to $25 per unit. Botox treatment is also offered by treatment area, which can range from $125 to $400 depending on the size of the area.
Botox injections take roughly 20 to 30 minutes to perform and have no required downtime afterward. Dr. Nusbaum will insert a thin needle into the desired area and inject the botox. This procedure does not require numbing or anesthesia; the sensation should be a slight pinch similar to a shot. Depending on your specific procedure, you may need multiple injections.
Results from your Botox injections should begin to show after one to two weeks. On average, the results of your procedure should last between three and six months, after which you may need follow-up injections to maintain your ideal appearance.
Since Botox is non-invasive, patients receiving Botox can return to their day without hindrance. This means that you can schedule Botox injections at any time and return to work and normal activities immediately. There is mild redness, swelling, and bruising that is common with Botox injection, but it should resolve in under an hour.
We highly recommend those getting Botox injections to avoid rubbing the injection site; this can spread Botox to other parts of the face. In addition, you should wait to perform strenuous exercise, spend prolonged periods in the sun, and drink alcohol for a few days.
BOTOX vs. Dermal Fillers
Botox and dermal fillers are both used to treat wrinkles. While they both accomplish the same goal, their procedures are very different. In addition, you can expect a difference in cost and results depending on your choice of treatment.
Dermal fillers use calcium hydroxylapatite or hyaluronic acid to add volume and give you a smoother appearance. Dermal fillers treat static wrinkles and not wrinkles that result from muscle movement. Botox, however, doesn’t treat static wrinkles but muscle-related wrinkles, which can become more pronounced as you age.
Fillers are more expensive than Botox injections, but their results tend to last longer. Ultimately, the decision between which is best for you depends on the wrinkles you want to treat. For the most common signs of aging, including crow’s feet, frown lines, and bunny lines, Botox is your best bet.
What is the ideal candidate for BOTOX?
If you are older than 18, are physically well, and are not currently pregnant, you are eligible for Botox injections. Those who meet these criteria and want to remove the muscle-related wrinkles on their face are good candidates for Botox.
How long does it take to see the final results?
Results should start to appear a few days after the procedure, but in some cases, it may take up to two weeks for the final results to show.
How long does BOTOX treatment last?
In most cases, Botox treatments last around three to six months. To maintain the appearance Botox gives, you will need additional injections.
Can you combine BOTOX with other treatments?
Yes, you can combine Botox with various cosmetic procedures, including dermal fillers, CoolSculpting, and chemical peels.
Can BOTOX be used for medical purposes?
Yes, while botox commonly treats wrinkles, you can also receive the injections for medical purposes like treating hyperhidrosis, joint disorders, and even migraines.
