Botox and Fillers Q & A

What Is Cosmetic Botox?

At  Garden State Medical Spa we offer a Cosmetic Botox injection to help reverse the appearance of facial wrinkles. Over time wrinkles form from repeated muscle contractions or facial expressions. Botox is injected into the muscles of a certain area in the face to provide a youthful glow.

Botox contains botulinum toxin which is a neurotoxic protein that relaxes the muscles. Results are seen within 7-14 days after treatment and last up to four months. Botox is a great choice for those that want to look youthful without surgery.

BOTOX can help you achieve younger-looking skin. Forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet often develop from years of repeated facial expressions creasing skin. BOTOX contains onabotulinumtoxinA, a solution that temporarily relaxes muscles under the skin to lessen the look of wrinkles.

What Areas Can Botox Treat?

Botox can treat many areas of the face and temporarily relax the muscles to smooth out the skin and help get rid of wrinkles on the forehead, bunny lines, the area between the eyes, glabellar lines, and crow’s feet. Botox can also sharpen the jawline or help reduce signs of aging around the mouth. Our doctors will complete a detailed skin consultation to determine where Botox should be injected for optimal results.




Dermal fillers are gel-like substances injected under the skin to temporarily add volume to areas that have become thinner with age. Filler materials include several natural substances.

What are the fillers?

Dermal filler treatments are minimally invasive and safe procedures. Cosmetically, Fillers typically treat lips, the area around the mouth, and the cheeks.

Are Botox and fillers safe?

Like all medical treatments, Botox and dermal fillers have the potential for some minor side effects. In rare cases, both Botox and fillers could result in allergic reactions like difficulty swallowing or breathing.

Botox Cosmetic and dermal fillers are FDA-approved treatments. Botox is meant for moderate to severe frown lines in adults, while dermal fillers are FDA approved for specific uses in adults over age 22, including:

  • Increasing fullness of cheeks, lips, chin, hollows under the eyes, jawline, and hands
  • Improving the appearance of moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and skin folds
  • Fixing acne scars on cheeks
  • Restoring facial fat loss in people with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)

After Botox treatment, avoid massaging or rubbing the treated areas as it could cause Botox to spread to other areas in your body. Also, avoid lying down or bending over for at least four hours after treatment to prevent Botox from causing eyelid droop.
