Bergen County Plastic Surgeon Dr. Jamie Bastidas Answers Your Questions about Botox®

In the news articles we publish on our website, we have focused primarily on subjects related to one aspect of our practice, the treatment of varicose veins and other vein diseases. But there is another important side of our medical expertise that helps to make us one of the most respected medical centers in New Jersey, so we’re going to start including articles about the Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery procedures we specialize in. This month’s article is about the most commonly-prescribed aesthetic procedure in the world, Botox®.

What exactly is Botox®, and how is it used to improve the appearance?

According to our Bergen County plastic surgeon, Botox® is a drug derived from a common bacterium called Clostridium Botulinum. It is used for a number of therapeutic medical applications, including a chronic migraine, limb spasticity (muscle paralysis or rigidity), and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).

Botox® Cosmetic is also used as an aesthetic treatment to temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The treatment works because the Botox Cosmetic blocks nerve impulses that cause the muscle contractions that create wrinkles, to give the skin a smoother and younger appearance.

What conditions can Botox help with?

Here at Chuback Medical Group, we have effectively used Botox to treat:

  • Crow’s feet – lines that form around your eyes when you smile
  • Bunny lines – horizontal lines on the sides of the nose
  • Glabellar lines – vertical frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Horizontal forehead lines – created when you raise your eyebrows
  • Platysamal bands – muscle banding also known as “turkey neck”

What is involved in getting Botox treatments?

Botox Cosmetic treatments are fast and simple. Botox is injected below the surface of the skin in the areas being treated. Each injection takes only a few seconds and causes little to no discomfort. You will be able to resume your daily activities the same day. Results from Botox injections are usually noticeable in 7 to 10 days and last for 3 to 4 months.

If you want to find out more about Botox or our other cosmetic procedures, give some of the best plastic surgeons in Bergen County a call at 201-693-4847. We’ll be happy to answer any questions you might have.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options

Abnormal veins, such as varicose and spider veins, affect nearly half of the adult population in the United States. Spider veins are little veins near the skin’s surface that resemble reddish tree branches or spider’s legs. Larger, bulging veins that are more bluish in color are called varicose veins. Varicose veins affect both men and women, but they occur more frequently in women.

There are many choices today for effectively treating varicose veins. Advances in medical technology have led to alternative treatments to surgery that are fast, virtually pain-free, and require little to no recovery time. Endovenous laser treatment, sclerotherapy, microphlebectomy, and radio frequency ablation are all options for current treatment.
