Dr. Vitaly Friedman and our experienced team can help you to look younger and more beautiful when we provide BOTOX®. Our dentist uses these injections to relax your facial muscles, smoothing away the wrinkles that age your appearance. Contact our team at 21st Century Dental Care today if you want to learn more about BOTOX® in Basking Ridge, New Jersey.

BOTOX® (onabotulinumtoxinA) is a medication that is injected into the muscles of the brow to smooth frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet. In fact, BOTOX is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines and crow’s feet lines. BOTOX can help you to look younger, calmer, and more alert. Our dentist may recommend BOTOX as a great choice to help you regain a more youthful appearance and boost your self-confidence.

BOTOX can also be used for a number of other purposes. Based on your specific needs, we may suggest BOTOX to reduce migraine headaches, lessen excessive sweating, or treat a TMJ disorder.

BOTOX involves no incisions, stitches, or surgery, so you can resume your daily routine directly following your appointment. This also means that your treatment will be comfortable and fast. Our team will simply inject the medication into the muscles. We may use ice or a topical numbing cream before the treatment to ensure that you feel completely comfortable. You may begin noticing results as soon as 24 to 48 hours after the treatment, and your BOTOX results can last up to four months.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Botox?


Botox is a cosmetic injectable treatment derived from botulinum toxin type A. It is commonly used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause them.

How does Botox work?


Botox works by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles, preventing them from contracting. This results in a temporary reduction in muscle activity, smoothing out wrinkles and lines on the skin.

What areas can Botox treat?


Botox is commonly used to treat wrinkles and lines on the forehead, between the eyebrows (glabellar lines), and around the eyes (crow's feet). It can also be used to lift the eyebrows, reduce bunny lines on the nose, and soften the appearance of a gummy smile.

Is Botox safe?


When administered by a trained and qualified medical professional, Botox is considered safe for most individuals. However, like any medical treatment, there are potential risks and side effects, which will be discussed during the consultation.

How long does Botox last?


The effects of Botox typically last between 3 to 6 months, depending on the individual's metabolism and the treated area. To maintain the results, follow-up treatments are usually recommended.
