What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?

Most people have heard about BOTOX® in the Philadelphia and New Jersey areas, but might not know all of the benefits of the treatment.

BOTOX® is an injectable made up of a purified protein that works by temporarily relaxing the muscles that contribute to major facial lines and wrinkles. It does this by preventing the signal that would otherwise cause the muscles to contract from being received. If the message does not arrive, the muscles remain unmoving. No movement means no wrinkles.

Interaction of nerve and muscle under normal circumstances Nerve signals are blocked reducing the muscles ability to contract and cause wrinkles
How Botox® Works - Botox® comes from bacteria that create a simple protein, similar to how mold produces penicillin. To create Botox®, manufacturers sterilize and freezedry this protein - two peptides joined by a disulphide bond - which is later reconstituted when ready for use by a dermatologist or other medical professional. Once injected, the protein impacts specifically targeted nerves that control muscle contraction and relaxation. The nerves absorb the Botox®, after which the muscle is relaxed for a period of months. This effect fades gradually as the protein is broken down by the body into its basic peptides.

The treatment is mainly used to address the upper portion of the face, and the injections are precision targeted to impact only the key muscles that cause lines and wrinkles to form and appear between and above the eyebrows.

While BOTOX® is ideal for temporarily treating wrinkles, facial fillers are better suited to fill out hollowed areas farther down on the face. In regards to our clients who look for a more comprehensive anti-aging treatment, we can combine your BOTOX® treatment at our South Jersey practice with other injectable fillers that are custom-picked to address your specific concerns. The overall effect will be one of youthful, healthy skin that appears free of the sorts of lines and sunken areas that develop as skin loses its natural levels of collagen and hyaluronic acid.

Your BOTOX® Treatment at South Jersey Skin Care & Laser Center

Before beginning your treatment, you will be assessed during a consultation to determine exactly where the BOTOX® treatment should be placed. This is an excellent time to share with the doctor what it is you are hoping to accomplish with your visit, as well as to ask any questions you may have about BOTOX® or other cosmetic dermatology options available.

After the specifics of a BOTOX® treatment have been settled and decided upon, Dr. Levin will begin the injections, which take only a few minutes to complete. In fact, not only does a BOTOX® appointment not run for very long, most of our BOTOX® patients from Philadelphia and South Jersey can resume normal activities immediately after. The minimal time commitment, lack of a recovery period, and satisfying results all combine to make BOTOX® a top choice for residents of New Jersey and beyond.
