Botox and Restylane Injections in New Jersey
Serving Patients in Totowa and Surrounding Communities
BOTOX® Cosmetic can be a great option for patients interested in a non-invasive facial rejuvenation technique. Designed to temporarily reduce minor wrinkles and facial lines, the popular treatment is FDA-approved and can be very effective for people wishing to restore a natural-looking, more youthful facial appearance. Dr. Jerry Strauss is well-trained and qualified to administer BOTOX® injections for any patient at Aesthetic Dental Care who may qualify as a candidate for this treatment.
During the procedure, BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into pre-determined areas in order to temporarily prevent tiny muscle contractions that cause wrinkles and furrows. Once muscles are calmed, the facial skin is able to relax and smooth out, which can almost immediately result in a fresh and more youthful look to the skin. The overall procedure generally takes about 15 minutes, and most patients are able to resume their daily activities directly following treatment. The effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic typically last anywhere from three to six months, and patients can return to Dr. Strauss’ office for further treatments to maintain their desired look.
BOTOX® injections can also be used to treat TMJ pain and tension headaches. Dr. Strauss will be happy to provide you more information regarding the procedure, and how it can be used to treat your specific needs, during a private consultation.
Dermal fillers like Restylane®, also called injectable fillers, are facial rejuvenation options designed to smooth wrinkled skin and add volume to facial features. The treatments can often be a great option for patients to smooth out wrinkles and facial folds, improve the appearance of creases and lines between the nose and mouth, and even add volume to the lips for a fuller, more defined look. Dr. Strauss believes dermal fillers can be an excellent cosmetic enhancement alternative for those wishing to avoid invasive surgery. With Restylane®, patients do not typically need to be tested for an allergic reaction prior to the procedure because the hyaluronic acid component used in the Restylane® solution is a naturally-occurring substance found in the body. Depending upon each patient’s individual goals, the product can be injected under the skin to add volume to the face, fill deep facial lines in a variety of areas, or a combination of both.
As a minimally invasive procedure, results from injectable fillers will often appear immediately following treatment. The effects of Restylane® can last from six months to a year in some cases; however, the results can generally be prolonged by receiving occasional follow-up treatments.
