Botox treatments can smooth work to smooth fine lines and reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. But is Botox right for you? Working botoxwith your doctor to understand the Botox procedure and how it can benefit you is easy with help from Dr. Lisa Silbret and Dr. Alan Schechter in Manalapan, NJ.

What is Botox? 
Botox is a dermatological treatment which freezes the muscles underneath fine lines or wrinkles. By eliminating movement in these areas, the skin does not wrinkle, preventing fine lines and wrinkles from becoming more noticeable. Botox also helps smooth the skin since the muscles are relaxed. Botox does not provide long-term results, with most patients scheduling touch-up appointments every three to six months.

Is Botox safe? 
Botox was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2002, gaining its FDA-approved title and being officially deemed safe to use. Though Botox often does not come with any major side effects, you may notice some insignificant annoyances like redness, bruising, or swelling at the injection sites. These side effects often correct themselves within a few days.
