Have you ever wondered if Botox was right for you? Dr. Lisa Silbret and Dr. Alan Schechter in Manalapan, NJ have been using Botox in their practice and serving the Tri-State area for over ten years and can answer all of your questions about Botox.
In recent years, celebrities and their use of Botox have given the treatment a somewhat meteoric rise to prominence in the world of dermatology. Botox has become one of the most popular cosmetic treatments for lessening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. While it is true that Botox comes from a bacterial toxin, Clostridium botulinum, it is actually a very safe and effective treatment option for a lot more than just cosmetic purposes.Botox can also be used to treat chronic migraines, overactive bladders, severe underarm sweating, blinking that can't be controlled, eyes that point in different directions, and a neurological condition that causes neck and shoulder spasms.
Botox works by blocking signals that go from a person's nerves to their muscles. When those nerves are blocked, it prevents the small muscles from contracting, which in turn relaxes and softens fine lines and wrinkles. Getting a Botox injection only takes a few minutes, and patients will see the full effect of the treatment within two weeks. a Botox treatment will last anywhere from three to six months, which makes it easy and fairly long lasting.
In general, Botox is a safe and effective treatment option for most people. However, pregnant or breastfeeding mothers and people who have a neurological disease should not take Botox. Drs. Silbret and Schecter can help you determine if Botox is the right treatment option for you.

How Botox from your dermatologists in Manalapan, NJ, can help you look younger
Did you know you can look younger and better, even if you have fine lines and wrinkles? Your dermatologist has a very powerful tool to help you fight the early signs of aging. It’s called Botox, and it can do a lot to help you look younger.
Dr. Lisa Silbret and Dr. Alan Schechter in Manalapan, NJ, provide comprehensive skincare services, including Botox treatment to help you look younger.
Botox is a popular anti-aging treatment, and it’s popular for very good reasons. Consider that Botox treatment can minimize the appearance of:
- Crow’s feet, which are the fine lines radiating out from the corners of your eyes
- Glabella, which are the deep creases between your eyebrows
- Furrows, which are the lines running across your forehead
- Marionette lines, which radiate downward from your mouth to your chin
Botox treatment offers many important advantages, including:
- Ease of use, because Botox is tolerated well by most people, and a numbing spray can be used beforehand too
- Quick results, because a Botox session takes only a few minutes, so you can resume your day
- Cost savings, because Botox is much less expensive than many other cosmetic services
- Safety, because Botox is rigorously tested and approved by the FDA
When you visit your dermatologist for Botox treatment, small amounts of Botox are injected in facial areas using a tiny needle. Your muscles and nerves are temporarily “frozen” in the area of the injection site, giving your skin a smooth, wrinkle-free appearance.
You will experience maximum benefits within 2 to 4 days of treatment. You may require maintenance treatments every 4 to 6 months, to retain the best results.
You don’t have to age gracefully. You can fight lines and wrinkles with Botox. To find out more about the benefits of Botox and how Botox treatment can help you look younger, call Dr. Lisa Silbret and Dr. Alan Schechter in Manalapan, NJ, at (732) 303-1500. Call today.
Which cosmetic treatment will give you the more youthful results you’re looking for?
There are so many options today to smooth wrinkles and fine lines without resorting to surgery. Both Botox and dermal fillers in Manalapan, NJ, have become popular cosmetic treatment options that our dermatologists, Dr. Lisa Silbret and Dr. Alan Schechter, offer. However, these injectables work differently on the face, and it’s important that our patients understand these treatments better so they can choose the right one to meet their needs.
How Botox Works
Our Manalapan, NJ, dermatologists use Botox to target dynamic wrinkles or the wrinkles that are accentuated when making facial expressions. Botox is injected into certain muscle groups of the face to temporarily pause nerve signals that tell the muscles to contract. This relaxes the muscles of the face to lessen the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
How Dermal Fillers Work
Dermal fillers work a bit differently from Botox. As we age we lose elastin and collagen, which causes us to lose volume in certain areas of the face such as the cheeks. One way in which we can restore volume and maintain the youthful contours of your face is with dermal fillers, which often use hyaluronic acid to plump up soft tissue.
Target Different Wrinkles
Depending on the type of wrinkles you’re looking to treat, our Manalapan, NJ, cosmetic dermatologists may recommend Botox or dermal fillers. You may want to consider Botox if you are looking to smooth away:
- Forehead lines including the vertical lines between the brows
- Crow’s feet (lines around the eyes)
- Bunny lines (those laugh lines that develop on and around your nose)
Dermal fillers may be a better option for you if you are looking to treat:
- Baggy eyes due to a loss of volume
- Laugh lines around the nose and mouth
- Flattened cheeks due to volume loss
- Thinning lips
Results with Botox and Dermal Fillers
Both Botox and dermal fillers only provide temporary results. Once you’ve received Botox, you’ll see results in about 3-4 days with maximum effects occurring about seven days after treatment. Botox results usually last 3-4 months but can last up to 6 months. Dermal fillers last a bit longer. Some fillers last six months to a year, while others can last several years.

Dr. Lisa Silbret and Dr. Alan Schechter in Manalapan, NJ, offer a wide range of dermatology services, including Botox treatment, to help you look your best.
Aging causes many changes in your body, including changing the appearance of your skin. Your skin loses elasticity and moisture. When you smile, frown, squint, or show other expressions, fine lines and wrinkles begin to form instead of your skin snapping back the way it did when you were younger.
These fine lines and wrinkles get deeper and deeper over time. Fortunately, Botox can help by smoothing out your skin, minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Consider that Botox can help minimize:
- Lines at the corners of your eyes, known as crow’s feet
- Lines from your nose to your mouth, from laughing and smiling
- Lines across your forehead, known as furrows
- Lines between your eyebrows, known as labella
Botox works by weakening or “freezing” the nerves and muscles around the injection site. After treatment, your skin will look smooth and more radiant, giving you younger-looking skin.
Botox is a safe procedure, approved by the FDA to treat the early signs of aging. It’s also a quick treatment, and you can request a numbing spray beforehand if you wish. You will notice results within 2 to 5 days after treatment. Additional maintenance treatments are recommended every few months to keep looking your best.
Looking younger can help boost your self-confidence. To discover more about the benefits of Botox in Manalapan, NJ, and how it can help you look your best, call Dr. Silbret and Dr. Schechter at (732) 303-1500 now!

Changes happen to your body as you age, including changes to your skin.

Fortunately, there is an effective weapon in the fight against wrinkles—it’s called Botox, and it can help you look your best by diminishing signs of aging, such as:
- Crow’s feet, which are the fine lines appearing at the corners of your eyes
- Furrows, which are the deeper lines appearing across your forehead
- Glabella, which are the lines appearing between your eyebrows
- Marionette lines, which are the lines appearing at the corners of your mouth
- Nasolabial lines, which are the deep lines running from your nose to your mouth
Botox is an injectable medication which works by temporarily “freezing” the nerves and muscles at the injection site. Botox has been rigorously tested and approved for use by the FDA. In clinical trials, it has shown tremendous benefits in making skin appear more youthful and smooth.
