We all wish to maintain a smooth, youthful face. Unfortunately, wrinkles start to appear on the face as we age, and the skin starts to sag. If you don’t like the appearance of your skin because of wrinkles, crow’s feet, or fine lines, or you feel that the wrinkles have come much earlier, you should consider getting Botox treatment. The team at Empire Dental Group of New Jersey, under the leadership of Alla Pavlushkin, DDS, provides Old Bridge Botox services and additional on-site cosmetic treatments, including dermal fillers and PDO threads.

What Exactly Is Botox?
Botox refers to an injectable cosmetic that minimizes the appearance of facial wrinkles. These wrinkles become visible with time because of common facial movements such as smiling, squinting, and frowning. Botox injections function by preventing chemical signals from the nervous system from reaching your facial muscles, inhibiting them from contracting. Botox keeps your muscles relaxed, making the skin look firmer and smoother. In addition, Botox effectively addresses other common issues such as; excessive sweating, TMJ symptoms, chronic migraines, repetitive neck spasms, low lip line, or individuals struggling to adjust to dental dentures.
Who Is The Right Candidate For Botox?
You are probably wondering whether Botox treatment is right for you. To determine if you are the right candidate for Botox, the doctor starts by reviewing your health history and inquiring about your treatment goals. Botox injections are FDA-approved and safe. However, they are not recommendable for everybody. This is true if you have a neurological disease, are pregnant, or breastfeeding. Your provider will determine if you are the right candidate to undertake the cosmetic procedure.
What Should You Expect During Botox Treatment?
The Botox treatment is performed on-site in the office. The number of Botox injections you get will depend on the severity of your wrinkles and other symptoms and your treatment goals. The procedure uses minimally invasive microneedles, and the treatment typically takes only about thirty minutes. After the procedure, you can go back to work and do other routine activities immediately.
What Are Other Cosmetic Services Available?
Other than Botox, the Empire Dental Group of New Jersey team provides several non-surgical treatments to smoothen your neck and face. These include;
This treatment procedure offers a non-surgical way of lifting wrinkled and sagging skin around your neck and face. The doctor injects several hypodermic needles into the skin containing an absorbable PDO thread. This functions by encouraging collagen production, which triggers biostimulation making your skin more youthful. These results last for one to two years.
Dermal fillers are a type of cosmetic injectable that restores your lost facial volume, including plumping your thin lips and addressing folds and wrinkles around your neck and face. Dr. Pavlushkin and the team use Juvederm, dermal fillers that contain hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that encourages the production of elastin and collagen, proteins that help your skin look healthy, young, and tighter.
To sum up, if your self-confidence is being affected by wrinkles and fine lines, you should consider Botox and other cosmetic treatments. Call or schedule a consultation online at Empire Dental Group of New Jersey today.
