What specific concerns can be treated?

BOTOX® Cosmetic can be used to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Some of the most commonly targeted areas of concerns include frown lines, corners of the mouth, brow, forehead, and crow’s feet.

Who performs the injections?

At the Cosmetic Facial Center of New Jersey, BOTOX® injections are administered by one of our experienced dentists. Beginning from day one, dental education centers around the oral and maxillofacial areas of the facial, enabling dentists to obtain a unique understanding of aesthetics between the forehead and chin.

How long is the treatment?

Administered right here in the comfort and convenience of our office, BOTOX® injections can generally be performed in half an hour or less, depending on the number of targeted areas being addressed. In fact, we’ve had several patients receive treatment over their lunch break.

Is it painful?

Our dentists take great care to minimize any potential pain or discomfort during treatment. When asked, the majority of individuals say they experienced little to no discomfort at all.

Is there any recovery or downtime?

Recovery or downtime following treatment is rare, though some degree of bruising and/or swelling in the targeted areas is common. That said, these side effects should fade relatively quickly, and most patients are able to return to work and/or normal daily routines as soon as they leave our office.

How quickly will results appear, and how long will they last?

The rejuvenative effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic may take up to two weeks to become fully apparent, and they can often last for several months. To maintain ideal results, touch-up treatments can be received on a periodic basis.
