Botox services offered in Hackensack, NJ

Botox is helpful in many ways. Normal aging and the use of facial muscles over time begin to wear down the underlying tissue, making the effects of gravity and sun exposure more noticeable. The use of Botox can help skin look more youthful and help fight back the aging process. Call us today to meet our aesthetic injector, we look forward to meeting you!

What is Botox?

Botulinum toxin, or botulinum neurotoxin, is a neurotoxic protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum and related species. It’s a noninvasive procedure that requires no surgery and can quickly rejuvenate your appearance.

Botox injections block specific chemical signals from nerves that cause muscles to contract. The most common use of these injections is to relax the facial muscles that cause facial wrinkles and frown lines.

Botox injections also are sometimes used to ease symptoms of some health conditions, like migraines and TMJ (temporomandibular disorder).

How do I know if I'm a good candidate for Botox?

You’re likely a good candidate for Botox if you:

  • Have moderate to wrinkles
  • Have moderate to severe lines
  • Have crows feet

You are also a good candidate if you are generally in good health and know the limits of Botox, and have realistic expectations about what it can achieve.

Dermal fillers may be the best solution if you want to treat deeper facial lines. Make sure you talk to your provider about all your options before deciding to get Botox injections.

Is Botox safe?

Botox is very safe when administered by a trained professional. This treatment is an excellent low-risk way to look rejuvenated and regain your self-confidence without the need for downtime or surgery.

How often should I schedule Botox?

Typically, the effects of Botox last for up to three to four months. Your All Health Medical Group Botox specialist lets you know how often to book follow-up appointments. 

In general, most people should have Botox injections once every four months is usually an ideal frequency. However, everybody has a different body with individual needs and goals. So you may need your injections more or less frequently. 

If your facial muscles begin to train themselves to contract less, the period of time for each treatment might be extended longer than three or four months.
