Botox® is the leading injectable, non-surgical anti-aging solution for millions of people around the world. If you are considering the treatment, you may be wondering if it is your best option. At their dermatology practice in Manalapan, NJ, Dr. Lisa Silbert and Dr. Alan Schechter help men and women decide which minimally-invasive procedures best serve their cosmetic goals.
Botox® works on dynamic wrinkles in the upper third of your face. These types of wrinkles develop as a result of your facial expressions. Botox® helps with crow’s feet, vertical lines between your eyes, and horizontal lines across your forehead.
Botox® injections temporarily relax the muscles in your face, and the effects of the active ingredient last approximately six months. You will need maintenance injections about every four months. If this timeline works for you, Botox® may be an ideal anti-aging solution.
Lines and wrinkles are the most common signs of aging, but there are many other ways that your skin shows your age. Botox will not help with age spots, redness, and other superficial flaws. If you have these signs of aging, Dr. Silbert and Dr. Schechter may recommend Botox® in conjunction with other skin treatments.
Side effects and complications of Botox® injections are rare, but we want to ensure your comfort before recommending Botox®. If you have a history of issues after Botox® injections, dermal fillers, and other cosmetic treatments, please let us know. You may still be a candidate for Botox®, or we may have an alternative treatment to help you look younger.
Botox® provides immediate results as the active ingredient starts to relax the muscles. You may still see some wrinkles and lines, though. Full results take up to seven days. If this timeline fits your plans, Botox® may be a good option for your anti-aging treatments.
Dr. Silbert and Dr. Schechter are happy to discuss Botox with residents who want to look younger without surgery. Call us today at (732) 303-1500 to schedule an appointment at our Manalapan, NJ, dermatology practice.
