BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA injection)

Injections of botulinum toxin blocks muscular nerve signals, which then weakens the muscle so it can’t contract. The end result is diminished unwanted facial wrinkles.

The Botox injections in NJ that we offer can be used to help smooth: crow’s feet, forehead furrows, frown lines, and skin bands on the neck.

Length Botulinum toxin treatment injections usually take less than 15 minutes. The number of injections you need will depend on your facial features and the extent of your wrinkles. Crow’s feet, for example, usually demand two to three injections. Furrows above your brow could take five or more.

Anesthesia No anesthesia needed.

Recovery There is no down time or recovery time. You may resume normal activities immediately.

Duration of Results You may notice results within a few days, but it can take up to a week to see the full effect. This improvement typically lasts about three to four months. When the effects of botulinum toxin begin to fade, your muscle reactions and the wrinkles will return.
