Cosmetic Botox Injections in Caldwell, NJ

BOTOX is the oldest and most favored neuromodulator injectable treatment with the most amount of clinical research behind the various applications of this product, including for medical usages like migraines and urinary incontinence. This neuromodulator is formulated with a purified form of botulinum toxin-A and includes added proteins that allow the formula to bind more effectively to injected areas.

What Is Treatment Like?

Usually, a Botox treatment will take about 20 to 30 minutes to complete. Your treatment will consist of several small injections placed in targeted muscle zones on the face. The amount of product you will need for your treatment will depend on the severity of your wrinkles and the location being treated.

Most people will not need more than 50 to 100 units of any injectable to address visible signs of aging for the whole face. Many people who are treating mild to moderate concerns will not need more than 50 units total, particularly if only a few areas are being treated. However, the more severe your aging concerns and the more areas that require treatment, the more total units your treatment will require.

Preparing for Treatment

To prepare for your treatment, you will need to take a few steps about one week before your treatment. It’s usually recommended to discontinue blood-thinning medications, certain supplements, and the usage of certain chemical skincare products to reduce irritation and encourage better healing after your treatment. Some patients like to take Arnica Montana supplements a few days before their appointment to enjoy faster recovery. You should also avoid alcohol and tobacco 24 hours before your treatment.

After Your Treatment

Once your treatments are complete, you will need to follow recommended aftercare instructions so your results develop as desired. Some instructions may include advice to avoid touching or scrubbing the face, avoiding hot water and certain skincare products for 24 hours, and how to use cold compresses to soothe your skin after your treatment.

When Will You See Results?

Most patients will need at least two weeks before significant results are visible, particularly first-time patients. Your results will gradually appear as your facial muscles relax and wrinkled skin appears more smooth. Your results may continue to improve for a short while after two weeks.

How Long Do Results Last?

The results of Botox will usually last between three and four months for most people as this is about as long as it will take your body to break down the botulinum toxin formula. Certain factors may influence how long your results last. For example, people who exercise strenuously or have high-stress lifestyles may have results that last closer to three months. You may be able to support longer-lasting results with additional aesthetic treatments or with skincare products.

Who Are Good Candidates?

Most adults who have moderate to severe facial wrinkles are good candidates for Botox. Botox is most effective when it is used on dynamic wrinkles, particularly on the forehead and around the nose or mouth. To be a good candidate for this treatment, you must be in good general health, you must have reasonable expectations for your treatment, and you must not be currently breastfeeding or pregnant.

Relax Your Wrinkles With Botox

Botox is an excellent aesthetic treatment for people who have particularly deep lines and wrinkles on the face. These treatments can essentially erase the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for three to four months at a time. Because botulinum toxin treatments are thoroughly researched and well-tolerated, most people who meet the eligibility requirements for these treatments are good candidates.
