What makes Botox the most popular cosmetic treatment?

You may not be ready yet to go under the knife to get a more youthful appearance. Your solution may be Botox, the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure in the world. In one short office visit, you can relax muscles and smooth out wrinkles caused by facial expressions. Here are some fast facts about Botox:

Safe and effective

Botox is FDA-approved for the treatment of moderate to severe “11” frown lines, crow’s feet around the eye area and forehead lines. It’s also effective on bunny lines of the nose and smoker’s lines on the upper lip. Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are biological toxins that have been transformed into a therapeutic agent. Botox is injected directly into a muscle with a tiny needle, temporarily freezing and preventing the muscle from contracting and forming a wrinkle or fold in the skin over it.

Botox smooths out dynamic wrinkles

Dynamic wrinkles form in the skin when the muscle beneath it contracts. Facial expressions such as frowning, squinting, smiling and laughing form dynamic wrinkles in the skin. No other non-surgical treatment compares to the power of Botox with dynamic wrinkles. Static wrinkles are wrinkles that are constantly present, namely smile lines, lip lines and marionette lines. These lines don’t respond to Botox and are best treated with dermal fillers.

Fast treatment and no downtime

One of the reasons why Botox is so popular is the fact that it’s a quick procedure, with minimal pain and no downtime required. Treatment usually takes 15-20 minutes. Tiny needles are used to inject Botox into the muscles, and ice and topical anesthesia minimize any pain. Patients can resume normal activities immediately.

Results appear in days and last for months

You will start seeing results in just 2-3 days, but full results appear a little more than a month after treatment. Results vary by person but typically last 3-6 months. You return to the office to get repeat treatment to maintain results.

Botox can help you achieve a more youthful appearance without having to have surgery. To learn more, call (908) 879-2222 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Weinstein.

What procedures are combined in a Mommy Makeover?

When a woman has finished childbearing, she often has many areas of concern on her body. Sagging breasts, loose skin and excess fat that doesn’t respond to diet and exercise entails a variety of procedures that can be done separately. A “Mommy Makeover” is a surgery that has become increasingly popular because it combines all of these procedures into one surgery and one recovery period. While a Mommy Makeover is customized to each patient, there are several common procedures:

Breast Augmentation

A breast augmentation can enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breasts, often correcting the loss of breast volume after pregnancy and breastfeeding. There are multiple techniques and different sizes and shapes of implants that can help women achieve the contour they desire.

Breast Lift

Pregnancy and nursing and aging in general cause the breasts to lose their elasticity, firmness and shape, causing them to sag. A breast lift reshapes and “lifts” sagging breasts.

Breast Reduction

Women with abnormally large breasts often suffer from chronic pain in the shoulders, neck and back, as well as posture problems, headaches and skin irritations. A breast reduction reduces the weight and size of a woman’s breasts and can improve the look and appearance of the areola.

Tummy Tuck

Excess skin, unsightly fat deposits and stretch marks are common concerns after childbirth. A tummy tuck is a procedure that involves removal of excess fat and skin from the abdomen and tightens the fascia surrounding the muscles of the abdominal wall.

Liposuction

Diet and exercise alone can’t remove some of the most stubborn fat pockets. Liposuction targets these fat pockets in multiple areas of the body to help contour a more proportioned and slimmer figure.

Facial Rejuvenation

A neck lift, jowl lift or removal of puffy eyelids are facial rejuvenation procedures that can be added to the Mommy Makeover surgery. These procedures smooth and tighten the sagging skin and helps women look more refreshed and youthful.
