BotoxAt Geria Dermatology, we use neuromodulators such as Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin to diminish the appearance of facial wrinkles. As we get older, our outside appearance may not match how we feel inside.

Lines and wrinkles can form between the eyebrows, around the eyes, and on the forehead. These wrinkles may give the impression that you’re tired, angry, or sad — even if that couldn’t be further from the truth. With the help of Botox, New Jersey patients can address these frustrating age lines.

Redefine Your Beauty With Botox

As skin loses elasticity, repeated facial expressions cause lines and wrinkles to be “etched” into the skin. Botox is a cosmetic treatment that is used to relax certain facial muscles that contribute to wrinkling. Once the muscles are relaxed, the skin becomes smoother, resulting in a more youthful, less worried appearance.

We don’t favor a “frozen” appearance, but rather a subtle natural-appearing refreshed appearance while still having some ability to make facial expressions. A keen eye, artistic vision, and precise hands are essential to achieving the natural beauty you desire from Botox.

Ideal Candidates for Botox Treatment

Botox is recommended for patients who are looking for non-surgical treatment for dynamic fine lines and wrinkles. Candidates must be 18 years of age or older and must have realistic expectations from Botox treatment. Good candidates are able to tolerate injections.

Patients who are not allergic to cosmetic injectable products are excellent candidates for Botox injections. Candidates should not have any skin disorder or infection in the treatment areas. Additionally, candidates should not be pregnant or breastfeeding. Candidates who are committed to a healthy lifestyle and proper skincare can enjoy results longer.


Preparing for a Botox Treatment

Patients may experience minor side effects such as bruising, swelling, and redness at the injection sites after Botox treatment. How rapidly these side effects disappear depends on what you do during the preparation phase.

We may recommend avoiding NSAID medications such as ibuprofen and aspirin a few days before your treatment if they are being taken for non-cardiac reasons. You may also be advised to discontinue smoking and drinking. This is due to the fact that these activities trigger inflammation and make it difficult for the body to recover from even the most minor of side effects.

During your initial consultation with us, you should be honest and transparent regarding your past and current medical health conditions. We will assess your condition and determine whether or not you’re a suitable candidate for Botox injections.

If you are suitable for Botox injections, we will create a personalized treatment plan. We will discuss the details of the treatment plan with you. Each detail, including the treatment session, aftercare, results, and cost, will be properly explained. We will also answer all questions you may have during the consultation.

If you are not determined to be a good candidate for Botox, making a few lifestyle changes may be necessary. If you follow our advice, you can become eligible for a Botox treatment.

Botox Is Safe and Highly Effective

Botox has a proven track record for safe use. It is FDA-approved for cosmetic treatment. According to the data, more than 11 million patients (both men and women) have received this procedure with significant results.

Botox has been used for over 20 years and is considered an extremely safe procedure with little to no downtime. You can receive the treatment in as little as 15 minutes and be ready to tackle the rest of your day with a rejuvenated look.

After Your Botox Treatment

Patients can return to normal activity immediately! It’s no wonder Botox is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the world and has a 96% “Worth It” rating on Full results of Botox take about 2 weeks and should last 3-4 months. We always recommend a complimentary 2-week follow-up to make sure patients are thrilled with their results.

Follow these steps after a Botox treatment session:

  • Don’t touch, rub, or massage the injection sites. Any kind of pressure applied to the area may lead to the Botox migrating to other areas.
  • Toxin migration and facial swelling can be controlled by avoiding bending over or lying down for the first few hours following the treatment.
  • Swelling may be exacerbated through rigorous exercise following the treatment. Because of this, you should avoid strenuous activities and exercise for at least an entire day after the injection.
  • Avoid taking NSAIDs and other blood thinners for a few days after the treatment, since they may prolong side effects such as bruising and redness.

Full results of Botox take about 2 weeks and should last 3 months. We always recommend a complimentary 2-week follow-up to make sure patients are thrilled with their results. Aside from proper skin care, we recommend maintenance treatments to our patients to make results last.

Dr. Geria is very patient explains everything step by step. Answers all your questions he is caring, precise and professional! My husband and I go for botox and xeomin and we get amazing results. Highly recommend his services!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Botox?

Botox Cosmetic is a product manufactured by Allergan. It is composed of botulinum toxin type A, a purified protein. As a neuromodulator, Botox can block nerve signals responsible for muscle contraction. This allows stiff muscles to relax, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles. It is a quick 10-minute procedure with minimal downtime that delivers predictable subtle results.

Which areas does Botox treat?

Botox is used to help adults temporarily improve the appearance of frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet, chin wrinkles, and vertical neck bands. It can also be used for jaw and jawline contouring, and resolution of hyperhidrosis (excess sweating in areas like the armpits). Treatment of undereye hollows, wrinkles bordering the mouth, and cheek or lip volume loss is best achieved with fillers instead of Botox.

How does Botox work?

Botox targets one of the underlying causes of lines and wrinkles — the repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, smiling and raising the eyebrows over the years. At first, these lines are temporary, but eventually, they can become “etched” into the skin. These muscles are injected with Botox to temporarily reduce muscle activity, resulting in a visible smoothing of your facial lines and a more youthful-looking face.

Will it hurt?

Some patients report feeling a pinch like sensation. We apply a numbing cream to minimize discomfort during the treatment.

When will I see results?

You should begin to see results in 2 days, with max results occurring at 2 weeks. The effects should last for 3 months.

Will I look overdone or unnatural?

When performed by an expert, your results should look natural and subtle. You’ll look like yourself - only with fewer lines. No one should be able to tell you’ve had anything done.

How long is the recovery time?

You can return to your normal routine immediately after you leave the office. However, patients still need to follow aftercare instructions to prevent complications and achieve optimal results.

Is Botox safe?

When performed by a cosmetic dermatologist, Botox is extremely safe. Side effects, if any, are mild and temporary.

How much does Botox cost?

The cost of Botox in New Jersey varies depending on the practice you choose for your treatment. Price is also determined based on the number of units used for your Botox injections.

✨ @drgeria was recently featured in the article by @livestrong_com where he shared his opinion on the use of dry shampoo.

👎Dry shampoo can be a convenient hair care product, its frequent and improper use may have some potential drawbacks.

🫧It should not replace regular hair washing entirely, as it doesn`t cleanse the scalp as effectively as traditional shampoo and water.

👉Overuse of dry shampoo can lead to product buildup, clogged hair follicles, and a dry scalp.

❗️Dr. Geria recommends using dry shampoo sparingly and recommends washing your hair regularly to maintain scalp health and prevent potential issues.

❓Did you know?

👉Consuming a diet that is rich in sugar and heavily processed foods can potentially have a significant impact on skin health and lead to the development of skin inflammation.

👎Processed foods often contain high levels of refined sugars, which can cause rapid spikes in blood sugar levels. This triggers the release of insulin, a hormone that regulates blood sugar, but can also have pro-inflammatory effects.

🙅‍♀️Chronic consumption of excessive sugars and processed carbohydrates may contribute to a state of chronic inflammation, which is believed to be a contributing factor to the exacerbation of skin conditions like acne, eczema, and psoriasis.

🥦In contrast, opting for a diet rich in whole, nutrient-dense foods, such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats, provides the body with the necessary building blocks for healthy skin.

👍These foods supply essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that can support the skin`s natural defense mechanisms and minimize the risk of inflammation-related skin issues.

✨Therefore, making mindful dietary choices can contribute to maintaining clear, vibrant, and healthy skin.
