Why use Botox Cosmetic?

There are several types of dermal fillers available for cosmetic treatment, all of which are available at our Rutherford office.

With a few tiny injections, Botox Cosmetic blocks nerve impulses to the muscles in your forehead, thus reducing their movement.  This decreased muscle activity helps lessen the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyes (glabellar or “H” lines), Crow’s feet found on the lateral border of the eyes, and the forehead.

Botox Cosmetic treatment is a quick and minimally invasive treatment at our Rutherford office. It is a 30-minute procedure that requires no downtime or recovery.  It is often called a “lunchtime” procedure!  In clinical trials, a majority of patients saw significant improvement in seven days and continued to improve for up to a month.

On the average, Botox lasts between three and four months.  Patients often prefer to be maintained every four months, before the initial Botox regimen is metabolized.

Why Use Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are injected under the skin with a fine needle.  They are used to fill in facial wrinkle and folds, creating an immediate smooth appearance.  Smoothing out folds and wrinkles by adding volume can make an enormous difference to a patient’s appearance.

The most common facial sites where dermal fillers are used are:

Nasolabial folds, Marionette lines (folds at the corners of the mouth)

Mandibular shaping (pre jowl sulcus)

Cheek augmentation to create a more prominent and rounded cheek

Oral commissures.

After uses of dermal fillers, the patient will experience a refreshed look, with wrinkle reduction and improved skin volume and vitality.

Dermal fillers are absorbed by the body over time.  The results typically last eight months.  The amount of time it takes for absorption depends on the type of filler used and the metabolism of the patient.  After the initial treatment, subsequent treatments are necessary periodically for “touchups.”

There are several types of dermal fillers available for cosmetic treatment, including Juvederm Ultra Plus and Restylane, all of which are available at our Rutherford office.

During your free consultation, Dr. Graber, at his Rutherford office, will suggest the right dermal filler for you as he considers the area of application and your individual need. Dr. Graber is a member of the American Academy of Facial Cosmetics; he is certified by the State of New Jersey to inject neurotoxins and dermal fillers.
