Botox: The Benefits

As the skin becomes less elastic, repeated contraction of the facial muscles creates visible lines and wrinkles, even at rest!

Over time, the repeated movement of certain muscles, such as those in the forehead, can cause the overlying skin to crease. Botox treatments relax the underlying muscles that cause these lines. Once the muscles are at rest, the skin becomes smoother, creating a more youthful, natural, and wrinkle-free appearance.

Injectable Treatment

Botox injections are an effective and minimally invasive option for reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

Botox treatments are safe and simple. A numbing cream can be applied first to improve the comfort of the injections. On average, Botox treatments can be performed in about ten minutes. Many patients do not need a topical anesthetic. The needles used are very thin and any pain is minimal.

Nurse Injector Peterpaul will administer the pre-determined dose along the area(s) that need improvement. Once the treatment is over you can return to your regular day! These injections do not require any downtime.

Recovery

After treatment, your injection sites may be red and slightly swollen. These symptoms should diminish throughout the first day. Makeup can be used to conceal any redness after twenty-four hours. Be careful not to bump or scratch these injection sites.

Botox Cosmetic Treatment for Excessive Sweating

We have helped many people with hyperhidrosis and the Botox treatment takes only a few minutes.

If you have excessive underarm sweating, Botox Cosmetic injections can help. Excessive underarm sweating, also known as axillary hyperhidrosis, is caused by the overstimulation of sweat glands by certain nerves in your body. This condition can lead to substantial emotional stress, social stigma and high costs associated with clothing cleaning and replacement.

Botox is now FDA-approved for the treatment of excessive underarm sweating that does not respond to topical applications such as deodorants and powders.

This simple treatment is fast, safe and effective. Most patients notice a significant reduction in underarm sweating within 48 hours of their first treatment and results typically last 9-12 months!

Your co-workers will wonder how you look so great!

Botox  is a very popular procedure and is often combined with other treatments like injectable fillers to help patients maximize their results.

We offer Juvederm XC, Juvederm Voluma XC, Restylane, Belotero and Radiesse. These fillers have been designed to improve specific areas of the face like the cheeks, area around the eyes, and the lips. Fillers do exactly what the name suggests, they fill in wrinkles and depressed areas to add youthful volume. This treatment has become highly popular as a lip plumping treatment. If you are looking for luscious, sensual lips, we can help you achieve a natural and alluring look.

With one or more injectable treatments, an individual can achieve a more youthful and refreshed facial appearance with a liquid facelift – a non-invasive procedure that will provide more volume and youthful contours. For those seeking more permanent results, Dr. Glatt offers a variety of plastic surgery procedures in New Jersey, such as facelift (“rhytidectomy”), eyelid lifts (“blepharoplasty”), necklifts, and browlifts.

Cost

The cost of your procedure will depend on the amount of Botox used and whether you combine your neurotoxin treatment with dermal fillers. Nurse Injector Peterpaul will provide you with a quote prior to treatment. Maintenance appointments will be needed every four to six months to ensure your results stay consistent. Give our office a call today at (973) 889-9300 or schedule a consultation with us to get started down the road to smooth, younger skin!
