Chances are that you’ve likely heard of Botox, as it’s one of the most popular cosmetic and medical injections on the marketplace right now. Healthcare providers can inject small amounts of Botox into targeted muscles and muscle groups to help smooth wrinkles, prevent migraines and headaches, and treat a whole host of other health conditions. Wrinkle reduction is definitely the most common use, however, as Botox can help eliminate deep-inset lines that form along the face as we continue to age.
At Bergen Premier Aesthetics, our team of specialists provides safe and exceptional care from the moment you step through the doors. If you’ve been thinking about Botox injections and would like more information to help you feel more confident in your decision, contact us at your earliest convenience.

Botox injections work by preventing chemical signals from being sent to the nerves. This stops targeted muscle groups from contracting and reduces tension in the area, which allows wrinkles to relax and soften. The result is less noticeable and eliminates fine lines and winkles, reduced frown/smile lines, and smoother, tauter skin.
Botox can also be used to treat a myriad of medical conditions such as bladder dysfunction, muscle contractions, cervical dystonia, chronic migraines, eye twitching, excessive sweating, and lazy eye.
The results of a Botox treatment last 3-6 months on average. Once the Botox begins to wear off, the targeted muscles will start to regain movement which will lead to the aesthetic and/or medical conditions returning. You’ll need to book periodic follow-up appointments to maintain your results over the long term, the frequency of which should be determined by the healthcare provider performing your injections.
There is no ‘one size fits all’ rule when it comes to starting Botox treatments.
To qualify for this service for cosmetic intentions you’ll have to be at least 18, and medically healthy, but other than that you can start going in for services whenever you like. In fact, it’s common for many to start utilizing Botox in their 20s and 30s to help maintain their skin health and to help combat any early signs of aging.
Botox is most commonly performed on those 40+ years of age as a way of easing and/or eliminating fine lines and wrinkles. However, those considering Botox should always have a clear understanding of their unique aesthetic goals and what they’re hoping to accomplish via treatment.
A licensed cosmetic specialist can help you determine if Botox is a suitable option for your aesthetic wants or if you might be better suited for an alternative form of treatment.
Botox injections effectively block chemical signals that cause muscles to contract, which can be beneficial for both aesthetic and medical purposes. While it’s most commonly used to reduce and/or eliminate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, it can also be used to treat certain medical conditions, including:
• Adult spasticity.
• Bladder dysfunction
• Cervical dystonia (neck spasms)
• Chronic migraines
• Eye twitching
• Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
• Lazy eye
• Muscle contractions
• Pediatric upper limb spasticity.
If you’re looking to get treated for a medical condition, it’s important to speak to your primary care provider as well as a licensed Botox specialist that can advise you on the ins and outs of the procedure, as well as what to expect from it. Botox should always be injected by a licensed professional that is experienced in the technique and is familiar with your medical history and treatment goals.
While Botox and dermal fillers can both be used to achieve similar cosmetic results, reducing the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles, it’s important to note that they are not the same.
Botox is derived from the botulinum toxin, which causes temporary muscle paralysis in targeted areas when injected. Botox can also provide medical benefits, such as migraine relief, fewer muscle spasms, improved eye twitches and lazy eyes, and helped bladder function.
In contrast, dermal fillers are made from either natural or synthetic materials, such as collagen, hyaluronic acid, or calcium hydroxylapatite, and are injected into the skin to add volume to certain areas.
Depending on your unique aesthetic goals and your medical health, your healthcare provider may suggest one over the other. However, both are safe and effective forms of wrinkle and fine-line treatment for many, making them two of the most popular cosmetic treatments on the market.
