How It works
Botox targets problems at the very core. To eliminate wrinkles, Botox is injected into the muscles of the problem areas to prevent them from moving, which eliminates wrinkles and lines from forming. As a result, facial lines soften and lines are eliminated effectively, with long-term results.
What it treats
Botox can treat fine lines and wrinkles on the face including forehead wrinkles, eleven lines, crow’s feet, and smoker lips. Botox can also be used for jawline softening, excessive sweating, lip lifts, migraines, nasal flare, eyebrow lifts, gummy smile and lip flips.
Botox is a quick procedure (10-20 minutes) with zero downtime and huge upside. Our approach to Botox is less is more. We administer just enough product to achieve a younger look, whilst maintaining your ability to show expression. Lastly, results last up to 3-4 months. Roughly 4 Botox treatments a year can keep you looking years younger.
Aging can be a difficult process and can cause us to feel embarrassed or unconfident in our own skin. There are many solutions available today to help reduce the visible signs of aging for a more youthful-looking appearance.
Frown lines can cause wrinkles and deep facial folds, both clear signs of aging. Frown lines are common on the face around the mouth and can create static wrinkles even when the face is relaxed.
A ‘gummy smile’ is the name given to a condition where the gum line appears too high when the person smiles. This can be caused by an upper lip that is longer than normal, or simply an exaggerated display of gums when you smile. A gummy smile can also contribute to the appearance of wrinkles around the lips, a weak chin, or other signs of aging, as well as affecting the proper alignment of teeth.
Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, can be a very uncomfortable and embarrassing experience. Not only can it lead to social awkwardness due to odor and dampness, but it may also lead to skin irritation due to excessive moisture. Additionally, people with this condition may feel embarrassed or ashamed in public due to their visible sweat stains.
Jawline Slimming and Masseter treatments are non-invasive approaches to smooth your profile and define your features. Both help to slim the face for a sleeker appearance. Adjusting the appearance of your jawline can reveal your natural beauty and result in more confidence.
Migraines are severe pain in the head that can sometimes be debilitating. Migraine pain often prevents individuals from enjoying their day to day activities and forces them to remove themselves from direct light or screens to seek comfort.
TMJ Pain or Temporomandibular joint pain is pain in the jaw joint and muscles that control the jaw. TMJ pain can cause extreme discomfort and prevent individuals from enjoying their daily activities.
Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process, but they can have a significant impact on someone’s self-confidence. They also make it difficult to apply makeup since some products may settle into the creases of the skin. We provide the perfect alternatives to smooth out wrinkles without the expense and hassle of surgery.

Botox is a neurotoxin that includes the ingredients of Clostridium botulinum type A neurotoxin complex, Albumin Human, and sodium chloride. It’s essentially produced using a fermentation process, which gives its ingredients the stunning amount of power they have.
Botox injections are noted primarily for the ability to reduce the appearance of some facial wrinkles. They are also used to treat such problems as repetitive neck spasms (cervical dystonia), excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), and may also help prevent chronic migraines in some people.
Botox results last 3-4 months, until it dissipates, and treatment is needed again. Results may last longer after multiple treatments. Patient results will vary depending on area treated and duration between retreatment.
No Botox treatment lasts forever, so it’s important to receive the appropriate recommended dosage and to know how to make your Botox last as long as possible. Extend your Botox with proper skincare, a healthy diet, and the use of other medical spa treatments at Aesthetica Medspa.
About Botox Post-Care
We have a number of tips and helpful reminders to get you through that after-Botox care period in the ideal manner. Here are some things to keep in mind:
Sit Up Afterwards
It can be tempting to fall asleep right after a procedure, especially one that might have caused you stress, but sleeping right after a Botox injection can be risky. While asleep, you might roll over and press certain parts of your face. This might reduce some of the effectiveness of NJ Botox, as you might press the drug out of the right spot. It’s recommended to wait 3-4 hours before lying down.
Ice is the go-to solution for any kind of swelling, and like other injections, Botox can occasionally cause swelling immediately after. By applying ice to the injection site (or the area of swelling), you can relieve yourself of the initial discomfort. A cold compress will also work in these cases.
Don’t Touch the Treated Area
One of the first urges you will have after your treatment is to touch the injection area, but don’t! Messing with that area can cause potential hiccups in your recovery and in the long-term results, and that’s the last thing you want to happen.
