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.
