Is Botox Right For You?

Botox Hamlton NJAt Derma Cosmedica, Dr. Joseph Guarino offers Botox Cosmetic treatment in his aesthetic medical spa in Hamilton, New Jersey. Botox Cosmetic helps patients revitalize their facial skin, reducing the look of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, nose, mouth, and chin. Patients love Botox Treatment because it is an effective, minimally-invasive treatment option that can help them look younger, more relaxed and attractive. If you are trying to figure out if Botox is right for you, consider the following:

What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable treatment that targets certain facial muscles, relaxing them to diminish lines and creases. It is an affordable and minimally-invasive alternative to surgical cosmetic procedures that requires no preparation and no downtime. Patients with fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead, around the eyes, on the nose, and between the eyebrows benefit the most from Botox. Approved for patients 18 and older, patients in their early 20’s and 30’s can also benefit from preventative Botox treatment to reduce the risk of wrinkle development in the first place. The injection is able to block certain nerves that cause wrinkles to help relax certain facial muscles that are causing expression lines to develop. Additionally, if you suffer from sagging skin, Botox can be used to lift that area, giving it an elevated appearance. Most patients feel more confident in their overall appearance after a single treatment, with full results showing one week after the initial injection.

What should I expect from the Botox procedure?

The Botox procedure does not take very long at all. Dr. Guarino will map out the injection sites based on your cosmetic needs and goals. Then, he will administer the injections as intended. It is a simple procedure that requires no anesthesia or sedation. Patients can drive, speak, chew, and experience all of their daily activities immediately following the procedure. You should avoid touching or applying make-up on or around the injection sites. We recommend exercising the facial muscles to allow the Botox® to absorb. On average, a typical Botox Cosmetic treatment session at our Hamilton Medical Spa takes approximately 15-30 minutes.
