Botox® Injections for Facial Rejuvenation

How to Tell If Botox® Is Right for You

Do unsightly wrinkles around your eyes or on your forehead frustrate you? Have years of squinting in the sun left you with “crow’s feet” near the outside corners of your eyes?

If so, do not stop expressing yourself! Instead, it may be time for you to pursue BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment with Morris County / Essex County plastic surgeon Dr. Erwin Bulan.

What Is BOTOX®?

BOTOX® is an injectable muscle relaxant designed to improve signs of aging in the upper face and neck region. With nonsurgical BOTOX® treatment, you can say goodbye to crow’s feet, horizontal “worry lines” that extend across the forehead or the vertical wrinkles between the eyebrows. BOTOX® may also be used to refine the shape or even raise the level of the eyebrows.  Dr. Bulan can even use BOTOX® on the lower face to supplement other surgical or nonsurgical cosmetic treatments.  Additionally, BOTOX® is now used to alleviate the discomfort of migraine headaches.

When injected, BOTOX® temporarily suspends muscle movement in the targeted area, creating a smoother, more youthful look. BOTOX® is an FDA-approved, safe and effective way to treat pesky facial wrinkles, so you can properly express yourself without adding years to your appearance.

Who Can Undergo BOTOX® Treatment?

You may be a suitable candidate for BOTOX® treatment if:

  • You are between the ages of 18 and 65
  • You are bothered by wrinkles, folds or creases on the forehead or near the eyes
  • You are in good overall health and not pregnant

Botox® is ideal for patients who are experienced mild to moderate signs of aging, and do not need more comprehensive procedures such as facelift, brow lift or eyelid surgery. To find out if you might benefit from BOTOX® treatment, schedule a personal consultation with a well-qualified professional such as Dr. Bulan.

What Is the BOTOX® Procedure Like?

Dr. Bulan performs BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment in about 10 minutes, with no downtime. You can visit Bulan Plastic Surgery on your lunch break and return to work or your normal routine with time to spare.

Before starting BOTOX® treatment, Dr. Bulan will cleanse the targeted area. Then, a small quantity of BOTOX® is injected into multiple sites to relax the muscles that are causing the targeted wrinkle or facial fold.

Although you may see some aesthetic results soon after treatment, the full benefits usually take a few days to become fully visible as the muscles in the treated area relax further. Results from BOTOX® typically last about four months. At that time, you can undergo another BOTOX® treatment if desired.

What Is Recovery After BOTOX® Like?

Recovery after BOTOX® treatment is relatively easy. A Bulan Plastic Surgery team member will place ice on the injection site(s) to minimize any minor discomfort. Again, you can return to work or your usual routine immediately after treatment. However, during the first four hours after the procedure, you should avoid strenuous activities (including exercise), lying down and applying makeup. Also, it is especially important not to rub the treated area(s) in the first 24 hours after treatment; this may cause BOTOX® to spread to undesired areas of the body.
