Fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face often lead patients to believe that facial plastic surgery is needed to turn back time and obtain a more youthful look. Fortunately, there are many non-surgical solutions available to patients in the area of Paramus, New Jersey. Dr. Frank Ferraro of Plastic Surgery Specialists of New Jersey is pleased to provide men and women with an alternative option: Botox injections.
What is Botox?
Dr. Frank Ferraro describes Botox as a treatment that is used to reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles and folds caused by muscle contractions. Botox is formulated using an ingredient known as botulinum toxin type A. This neuromodulator works by reducing muscle contractions where injected. In addition to being used for facial enhancement, this medication is also used for conditions such as cervical dystonia, overactive sweat glands, chronic headaches and migraines, and overactive bladder. Botox has been on the market for many years and continues to be a reliable treatment for men and women seeking cosmetic enhancement.
How does Botox work?
Botox is a medication injected into specific muscles of the face to address common problems, including:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead folds
- Glabellar lines (lines between the eyebrows)
For several months, this injectable will work by smoothing the skin and providing a youthful improvement. To maintain the results, patients will have routine injections done at Plastic Surgery Specialists of New Jersey.
Who is a good fit for Botox?
Most patients will find Botox to be suitable for their needs. However, there are times when Dr. Frank Ferraro may suggest alternative injectables or even plastic surgery. Patients with mild to moderate aging skin will find Botox to be a reliable and affordable solution prior to undergoing facial surgeries to treat skin laxity.
