Botox for a More Youthful Appearance
Today people who want to look and feel their best have a variety of non-invasive cosmetic medical procedures available, from injectable dermal fillers to laser therapies. Yet Botox Cosmetic treatments remain the most popular cosmetic procedure here in the U.S. more than a decade after receiving FDA approval in 2002. That’s because Botox is very effective for reducing, eliminating and preventing facial lines and wrinkles. At the Dermatology Consultants of Short Hills, Dr. Lin and Dr. Farley-Loftus have extensive experience providing Botox treatments to patients from Essex and Morris Counties and throughout northern New Jersey.
Our faces tell the stories of our lives – and sometimes they reveal more history than we care to share. When we show emotion – smile, laugh, frown, or appear surprised – muscles in the face contract. Eventually the repeated contractions create permanent lines and wrinkles that crease the face, and can make us look angry, sad, tired, or just plain old.

Botox, the trade name for botulinum toxin A, is a muscle-relaxing agent derived from the Clostridium Botulinum bacteria. Botox blocks the action of nerve muscles that cause the contractions, thus smoothing the lines and wrinkles these contracted muscles cause. In addition to smoothing crow’s feet, frown lines between the eyebrows and forehead lines, Botox injections can also treat worry lines around the mouth and lines on the neck. Botox is popular with both men and women, and is appropriate for just about anyone who wants to eliminate lines and wrinkles on the face. However, anyone contemplating this procedure in Livingston should be in good health and physical condition, not pregnant or nursing, and should not have a neuromuscular disorder.
