Are You Looking for a Non-Surgical Treatment That Can Take Years off Your Appearance?

We know that everyone wants to maintain a young, vibrant appearance for as long as possible, but not everyone wants to go through cosmetic surgery in order to achieve the look. Luckily, our Manalapan, NJ, dermatologists, Dr. Lisa Silbret and Dr. Alan Schechter, offer Botox, a simple, fast, and nonsurgical option for treating those fine lines and wrinkles in your face.

What is Botox?

Botox is a medical-grade injectable that is designed to reduce the appearance of dynamic facial lines (ie the wrinkles that appear across Botoxthe face when smiling or frowning).

These thin injections are filled with a highly purified form of botulinum toxin that temporarily slows muscle contractions, the direct cause of the unwanted wrinkles and lines in the first place.

What Is the Treatment Like?

Getting Botox is extremely swift, simple, and relatively painless. The procedure simply consists of a few needle administrations into the skin, only taking a couple of minutes while containing absolutely no downtime. It's so quick some patients even choose to come in during their lunch break!

There may be a slight burning sensation when first administering the needles, but this is well tolerated and goes away quickly. Of course, if you have a low pain tolerance, we can apply ice or a topical numbing gel to the skin prior to the procedure.

When Will I See Results?

It will take a couple of days to see the full results. You will begin to see facial lines and wrinkle fading over 3-4 days with the full results appearing within one week. Most patients worry that Botox may make them feel frozen, but rest assured that because this treatment does not affect the nerves, you will not feel numb nor will you lose sensation.

How Long Will Results Last?

How long your results last will vary from person to person, but effects usually last anywhere from 3-4 months. Of course, you can choose to get maintenance treatments throughout the year at our Manalapan office to refresh your results.
