Why patients choose Botox for the anti-aging benefits

Dr. Sanjay Lalla and his team in New Jersey offer surgical and nonsurgical solutions for the face and body. He is a board-certified plastic surgeon in the area that is committed to helping adult men and women look and feel their best. When patients visit his office concerned about the formation of fine lines and wrinkles due to skin laxity in the face, they are often interested in learning about their options. One popular choice is that of Botox.

What is Botox?

Botox is a brand name product that works in reducing the appearance of dynamic wrinkles and folds on the face. When injected into the muscles on the top third of the face, Botox can smooth the skin within a week and maintain the results over the course of several months. Patients use Botox to counteract mild to moderate fine lines, wrinkles, and folds that are contributing to the appearance of aging skin, and regain their youth. This is done all without plastic surgery, eliminating the risk of scarring and significantly reducing the chances of infection.

Where can Botox be used?

Botox is best used on areas where dynamic wrinkles form, including:

  • Along the forehead
  • Between the eyebrows
  • Around the eyes (crow’s feet)

When will plastic surgery be required?

Patients need to be well-aware of the fact that Botox can only work to a certain extent, and we encourage patients to have realistic expectations of what can be achieved using Botox and other cosmetic injectables. Dr. Sanjay Lalla finds that patients with more severe wrinkles and folds that are not responding to Botox may need to be addressed using plastic surgery. However, most men and women can delay the need for plastic surgery with Botox until the signs of aging are no longer effectively reduced with this method.
