Botox ® in East Windsor, NJ
Board-certified New Jersey otolaryngologist Dr. Scott Kay, FACS, offers Botox® injections to the residents of East Windsor, NJ.
Understanding Botox® Injections
Botox® is an anti-aging treatment that is popular for treating lines and wrinkles caused by muscle contractions. Typically used on facial muscles, these injections are made with botulism toxin that temporarily paralyzes the injected area. This causes the muscles in the area to relax, making the wrinkles and deep lines disappear. Some patients start using their facial muscles less after treatment, which helps them to continue reducing wrinkles over time. Other patients require ongoing injections in order to maintain their results.
Benefits of Botox® Treatments
Botox® has a lot to offer as a minimally invasive treatment. Consider these benefits when thinking about your next anti-aging treatment:
- Non-surgical treatment available
- Targets deep and fine wrinkles
- Takes less than an hour
- No downtime
- Usable for most areas of the face
Injecting Botox® in Patients
Botox® requires administration using a very fine needle. Typically, this needle is smaller than those used for regular shots at the doctor’s office. Patients usually feel very little or no pain during injection. Topical anesthesia is available should you feel any pain during your treatment. Botox® is injected directly into the muscles causing the wrinkles. The process typically takes between 30 and 60 minutes.
