What age is the right age to start Botox?
Botox injections are a very popular cosmetic procedure – and it is one that is becoming more and more popular with the younger generation. You may be wondering what age is a good age to start Botox, and what are the advantages to getting it when you are younger?
What is Botox used for?
Botox is an injectable, and it is used to reduce wrinkles and fine lines. It works by blocking the signals that pass between the muscles and the nerves, which relaxes the muscles, which, in turn, relaxes the skin and smooths out lines. It is also used for medical problems such as lazy eye, migraines, and bladder issues.
Why is Botox so popular?
Botox has many advantages over a surgical procedure such as a facelift – it is less expensive, and of course it is much less hassle than having surgery. There is also much less downtime with Botox compared to a facelift. It only takes a few minutes, after which the patient can get right back to most normal activities. It may take a few days to see the effects of Botox. Botox also has very few possible side effects, although there may be some slight bruising.
When can patients start getting Botox?
Botox isn’t just for the older generation. Nowadays Botox users are younger – patients want to start it right when wrinkles are beginning to form. It is approved for patients who are at least 18, but most experts say that the mid-20s to early 30s is when Botox injections should begin. Starting Botox at an early age can actually mean you’ll need less Botox as you get older and the Botox you do get will last longer, as it weakens the muscles. However, you don’t want to go overboard on Botox, because getting too much can make you look older than you really are.
Are you wondering if you should start getting Botox injections? The staff at the Weinstein Plastic Surgery Center can help you decide or can give you other options to help you get the results you are looking for. Call the Weinstein Plastic Surgery Center in Chester, New Jersey, today for an appointment, at (908) 879-2222!

8+ Things You Should Know About Botox
You probably know at least one friend or coworker who has had Botox, and they probably love what it has done for them. Have you been considering Botox? If you’ve been thinking about Botox, you may have some questions. Here are some Botox facts!
What you need to know about Botox
1. Botox works by blocking signals between the nerves and the muscles, which keeps muscles from contracting and relaxes and smooths out wrinkles.
2. It is a neurotoxin, which sounds like a bad thing to inject into your body. However, it is very safe when it is used correctly, has been used in cosmetic procedures for decades, and has been used successfully with millions of patients.
3. It is used to reduce the appearance of lines around the mouth, frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. However, it has medical uses, too. It is used to treat neck spasms, lazy eye, chronic migraines, and overactive bladder.
4. The procedure to get Botox is noninvasive, nonsurgical, and quick. It is done in the doctor’s office and there is no downtime afterwards, although you should avoid strenuous activity such as a trip to the gym.
5. Most patients say that there is very little pain – just a bit of a pinch. You may be bruised a bit afterward, but this will fade within a few days.
6. The effects of Botox can last as long as 6 months, although it may take a couple of weeks to really see these effects. After your Botox has worn off, it is safe to get more injections.
7. Botox can be combined with other procedures, depending on the results you would like to see. Your doctor can help you decide which other procedures are right for you.
8. Botox is a great way to reduce wrinkles and get younger, smoother-looking skin if you have tried at-home creams with no results, but you aren’t quite ready yet for a surgical procedure such as a face lift.
If you have been considering Botox, why wait anymore? Call the Weinstein Plastic Surgery Center in Chester, New Jersey, at (908) 879-2222 for an appointment today!

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.

How Botox and dermal fillers can help you achieve a more youthful appearance
Cosmetic injectables are increasingly popular non-surgical treatments that can restore lost volume to the face, smooth lines, and wrinkles, soften creases and enhance facial contours. Here is some more information about injectables that help rejuvenate and enhance your natural beauty.
Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin
There are two different types of wrinkles – dynamic and static. Static is continuously visible wrinkles that are treated with dermal fillers. Dynamic wrinkles form due to muscle contractions under the skin caused by facial movements such as smiling, furrowing the brow and squinting and are best treated with injectables including Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin. All three are biological toxins that have been transformed into therapeutic agents used to treat crow’s feet, anger lines, lip lines and more. It takes about three days to fully work, with results lasting three to six months.
FDA-approved to treat moderate-to-severe static wrinkles, folds, and creases around the nose and mouth, Radiesse is a go-to treatment Dr. Weinstein has been using for more than 25 years. Composed of microspheres made of calcium hydroxylapatite in a water-based gel, Radiesse stimulates the production of collagen when it’s injected into lines and wrinkles to add volume. The treatment only takes about 15 minutes to perform, with immediate results lasting up to a year.
Using a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin, Restylane is an FDA-approved treatment used to add volume and fullness to the face to correct facial wrinkles and nasolabial folds. It’s also effective in improving lipstick lines, which is the area below the nose and above the upper lip, the outer corners of the mouth and marionette lines, which is the area that extends from the corners of the mouth to the jawline.
Juvederm, Bolotero, and Voluma
Also using hyaluronic acid, fillers such as Juvederm are injected around the mouth to reduce wrinkles and soften deep folds, restoring facial contours for a more youthful appearance. Juvederm Voluma is great for adding volume to the cheek area. Juvederm and Bolotero can also be used to restore fuller lips.
Dermal fillers can be used in combination with Botox to help you achieve the youthful appearance you desire. If you’d like to learn about all the non-surgical ways to improve your appearance, call (908) 879-2222 today for a consultation.

When to Consider Getting Botox
Botox has been and still is one of the most popular procedures that patients come into Dr. Larry Weinstein to get. By temporarily relaxing the muscles around the eyes and forehead, Botox works to give patients a wrinkle-free complexion. However, as one of those things that just about everyone is flocking to get, it can be hard to know when you should start getting Botox done. Read on to learn more.
When You Start Noticing Wrinkles
Because everyone has different genetics and skin types, it’s hard to give a definitive answer to what age you should start getting Botox done. However, it’s safe to say that you should start coming in to get Botox as soon as you start noticing wrinkles around your eyes and forehead. To test out whether or not you have wrinkles, try scrunching up your forehead and the skin around your eyes while standing in front of the mirror. Once you relax, are the wrinkles still there or have they gone away? If they are present, then you need Botox. If they vanish right away, you still have time to spare.
Look At Your Family History
To help you decide when you should start getting Botox, look at your family’s skin. For instance, do your mother and grandmother have wrinkly skin or is it as smooth as butter? If your family is known for having prematurely aged skin, then you may want to consider getting Botox done sooner than later.
Notice Your Habits
Are you a fairly animated person? Do you make a lot of facial expressions when you are talking to people? If so, you are more likely to get premature wrinkles, which means that you should start getting Botox injections sooner than later.
To learn whether or not you are in need of getting Botox injections, schedule a consultation with Dr. Larry Weinstein today!

4 Things You Didn’t Know Botox Was Used For
The rich and famous use it and it’s likely that your friends and coworkers have had their own dose of this filler as well. As the most popular filler on the market, Botox is considered to be a miracle worker for many women. Used to help fill in fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and forehead, Botox gives patients a younger and more even looking skin tone. However, although it’s predominant use is as the top facial filler on the market, Botox is also used to treat a variety of other areas, including the following.
If you’re like the millions of individuals who suffer from debilitating chronic migraines, and you just can’t seem to find a cure, then Botox might actually be able to help. During this process, 31 injections will be inserted into the neck and head every 12 weeks in order to help prevent the onset of headaches.
- Underarm Sweat
Nothing is quite as embarrassing as lifting up your arm only to reveal a giant sweat stain underneath. If you suffer from chronic underarm sweating and it is causing embarrassment and discomfort, Botox can help with that too! By having injections of Botox made in your underarms, it helps to stop the production of chronic sweat, leaving you with less sweat stains and less of an embarrassment.
- Overactive Bladder
One of the most surprising things that Botox can help with is an overactive bladder. If you struggle with the constant urgency to urinate and just can’t seem to find some sort of relief, then Botox can help you. During the procedure, Botox is injected into the bladder muscle in order to help stop any spasms that help induce the desire to urinate.
- Neck Pain
Cervical Dystonia is a condition that causes neck pain in individuals who are 16 years and older, and that effects even the slightest neck movements. However, you may have guess by now, that Botox can in fact also help to alleviate the pain and discomfort caused by this disorder.
Botox is used for a slew of other things not associated with plastic surgery. In fact, it can be used as a tool to help treat serious conditions like chronic migraines and neck pain. If you or a loved one suffers from any of these conditions, ask your doctor today about the possibility of using Botox treatment.

Going Out for Lunch? Try Botox with Dr. Weinstein!
One of the downsides of cosmetic procedures is the extended time it may take to recover from the procedure. While some can go on a vacation and have a New Jersey liposuction, not everyone has the luxury to take a few days off from work or school to have plastic surgery. This is where lunchtime procedures such as Botox in New Jersey come in!
What is Lunchtime Botox?
Lunchtime Botox is now popular amongst men and women who want to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the forehead and around the eyes and mouth. Getting Botox injections can take less than an hour and you are good to go. There is no downtime and you can immediately resume your daily activities and tasks.
Is It Worth It?
Botox wouldn’t actually be on top of the non-invasive cosmetic procedures for 2012 if it wasn’t worth it. While critics would be quick to point out that its results are not long-lasting, it is important to note that the procedure does last 3 to 6 months and is very convenient.
However, if you are looking for long-term solutions against facial aging, a New Jersey facelift would be more appropriate. Lunchtime Botox is ideal for those who want quick and affordable anti-aging procedures to get positive results.

Botox Amongst Males Rising in Popularity
In 2012, there were approximately 14.6 million surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures done in United States. This numbers, provided by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, further revealed that Botox tops the list amongst the non-surgical cosmetic procedures. This should not come as a surprise as more men and women are now deeply conscious of how they look and how it affects their overall personality. Dr. Larry Weinstein usually recommends a session of New Jersey Botox for individuals who would like to delay the process of aging a little more.
Botox for Men
The idea of Botox as a wrinkle treatment for women is now a thing of the past. Recent statistics has revealed that this lunchtime procedure is now sought after by men — from Wall Street bankers to TV personalities to the regular Joe sitting next to you at the bus station.
A 2012 report posted at The Huffington Post revealed that Wall Street men seeking Botox are now increasing in number. “They are looking for ways to smooth out the stress lines caused by the European crisis abroad and weak economy at home. But while bankers are willing to go under the knife, they do want to make sure they aren’t found out,” the report stated.
Botox as a preventive measure against wrinkles are now also widely used amongst women in their twenties. Originally utilized to reduce the appearance of fine lines and crow’s feet, Botox is now in demand for its ability to actually delay the appearance of the first signs of wrinkles.
While the appearance of wrinkles is influenced by diet, genetics and stress, early injections of Botox could actually help delay its development. A recent news item over Arizona’s CBS5 featured a 29-year old woman who has been getting Botox since she was 26 years old. She wanted to maintain the youthful glow of her 20s thus her early use of Botox.
If you’re thinking about getting Botox, expect to notice results within 5 to 10 days after treatment. Results could last for 3 to 4 months and repeat sessions may be need to keep wrinkles at bay.

Botox and its Many Benefits
The cosmetic use of Botox was accidentally discovered in 1987 and its popularity today has soared to greater heights in treating wrinkles and fine lines. Apart from its wrinkle-smoothing properties, Botox is also used in the treatment of these 3 areas: excessive sweating, neck muscle disorders and eye muscle disorders. Dr. Larry Weinstein caters to clients who would like to have a New York Botox session for more youthful looking skin.
1. An injection of Botox primarily works by paralyzing the muscles injected with the botulinum toxin. The lesser a muscle moves, the less likely a wrinkle will develop. It is often injected into the face to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
2. The wrinkle-fighting toxin is also shown to be effective in treating migraine headaches. A study by the National Institutes of Health found out that when Botox is administered into the forehead, shoulder and neck, tension is relieved from the muscles resulting to reduced pain impulses into the nervous system. The results of the study prompted the FDA to approve the use of Botox in treating migraine headaches.
3. Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating is treated with several injections of Botox. Other applications of Botox which is currently under investigation include treatment of spasmodic dystonia, a neurological disorder which affects the larynx muscles. A recent study is observing its use in treating chronic pain in both the neck and the back.
4. In a study of 16 children with cerebral palsy, it has been revealed that Botox helped reduce spasticity amongst the patients. Their walking patterns has also improved as well as their ankle’s range of motion.
5. The National Institutes of Health has also revealed that Botox can be employed in the treatment of individuals who suffer from a highly active urinary bladder. When Botox is injected, the bladder tends to relax while increasing its capacity. The relaxing effect to the overactive bladder is said to last for months. This recent discovery has greatly benefited patients suffering from spinal injuries and disorders where bladder function has been compromised.
6. As eye muscles are temporarily relaxed with an injection of Botox, patients with eye disorders such as blepharospasm and strabismus can profoundly benefit from small yet consistent doses of a Botox injection.
Botox has certainly become so popular with numerous uses in the field of medicine – whether in cosmetic surgery or rehabilitative treatments. For more information on how Botox can work for your unwanted facial lines and creases, we invite you to visit Dr. Weinstein the soonest! Contact us for a personal consultation today.
