Botox ® in Princeton, NJ
Board-certified New Jersey otolaryngologist Dr. Scott Kay, FACS, offers Botox® injections to the residents of Princeton, NJ.
What is Botox ®?
Botox® is considered to be one of the most popular anti-aging treatments on the market today. These special injections are designed to treat wrinkles and dynamic lines that are caused by the contraction of various facial muscles. Botox® injections contain a botulism toxin that is designed to paralyze the facial muscles temporarily. The wrinkles and lines simply vanish when the muscles are relaxed. The wrinkles and lines become less noticeable over time. Most patients need ongoing Botox® treatments for maximum results.
Advantages of Botox®
Botox® offers many wonderful benefits for anyone who wants to reduce facial lines and wrinkles.
- Non-surgical procedure to treat unattractive wrinkles and lines.
- The procedure can be administered in less than one hour.
- No downtime or recovery is needed after the procedure.

How is Botox® Administered to Patients?
Botox® is administered carefully with a fine gauge needle. The needle is normally smaller than what is used for immunizations. Most patients feel little to no discomfort during the procedure. We can treat the targeted area with a topical anesthesia if you begin to feel pain. Dr. Kay injects Botox® into facial muscles that are notorious for causing lines and wrinkles. The procedure normally takes 30 to 60 minutes of the patient’s time.
