Relax Wrinkle-Forming Muscles with an Injectable in NJ
Patients who choose BOTOX® at the NJ practice of Dr. Carlos Burnett are choosing the No. 1 selling product of its kind. FDA approved for the temporary improvement of frown lines, horizontal forehead lines, and crow's feet in adults, the muscle-relaxing injectable is the most popular cosmetic treatment—noninvasive or surgical—in the world.
BOTOX® has become a widely recognized and requested procedure, with millions of people enjoying its results in 78 countries. As a neuromodulator, it addresses the underlying muscles of the face that cause lines and wrinkles by temporarily reducing their contractions. Less muscle activity means less-visible lines.
Dr. Burnett is proud of the results he can achieve with BOTOX®, which can be used for more cosmetic applications than its FDA-approved uses. This cosmetic medication is regularly chosen by men and women who want to reduce the common signs of aging, such as "11s" (vertical lines that develop between the brows), horizontal lines across the forehead or neck, chin dimpling, and crow's feet. It can also inhibit sweat gland activity, making it ideal for patients who suffer from hyperhidrosis.
BOTOX® typically takes a few days to begin working, with muscle activity slowing until wrinkles are reduced. The effects can last up to four months, and patients are welcome to return for more injections at that time.
The Importance of a Skilled Injector
BOTOX® works to smooth the skin by relaxing muscles commonly used to make facial expressions, which means it must be injected with precision and care. Dr. Burnett uses his expertise as a plastic surgeon to customize treatments for each patient. As a trainer for Allergan—the makers of BOTOX®, Juvederm® dermal fillers, and Kybella®—Dr. Burnett is more qualified to give injections than other kinds of physicians, such as dentists, general practitioners, and even dermatologists.
After a BOTOX® injection session, Burnett Plastic Surgery patients retain their ability to make facial expressions, looking naturally rejuvenated and vivacious. Treatments take only a few minutes, and you can return to your normal daily routine when you leave our office, feeling great about your appearance.
Dr. Burnett also offers another neuromodulator: Xeomin®. Both injectables have a purified form of botulinum toxin as their active ingredient, and both work by preventing muscle activity to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, but they also have unique qualities that set them apart. Xeomin® tends to take a little less time than BOTOX® to begin working once injected, though it also spreads a bit farther from the injection site.
No matter the specific injectable chosen—whether a neuromodulator, a filler, or a combination of treatments—maintaining a healthy, youthful glow can have a massive impact on how you feel about yourself on a day-to-day basis. Your self-esteem, in turn, tends to influence your decisions and your outlook on life in ways that may not be evident.
Dr. Burnett can administer your BOTOX® injections and other treatments to achieve a smoother and younger look, keeping you looking and feeling great!*
