Botox® continues to be one of the most popular cosmetic treatments because of its effectiveness at smoothing crow’s feet and frown lines. Board-certified South Jersey plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Mohit Sood performs Botox® injections safely at his Linwood, New Jersey practice.
What Is Botox®?
Botox® is a prescription injection placed into forehead muscles to help reduce wrinkles and smooth the skin. It works by temporarily freezing certain muscles in the forehead responsible for wrinkling. A single injection can provide results that last for several months, after which time treatment can be repeated.
Benefits of Botox®
Although it is derived from botulinum toxin, Botox® is considered safe to use. Results of Botox® are noticed immediately and will continue to be visible for up to six months. Even after the initial effects of Botox® wear off, fine lines and wrinkles in the forehead may appear less noticeable than they were before since the muscles will learn to relax over time.
How Is Botox® Administered?
A Botox® treatment only requires Dr. Sood to place the proper amount of this drug into a syringe and then inject the medication into the forehead region. No anesthesia is needed, and the entire procedure from start to finish should take less than 30 minutes.
Preparing for Botox®
Other injectable fillers should not be given in conjunction with Botox®. Avoid having other non-invasive procedures such as microdermabrasion performed for at least two weeks prior to your Botox® appointment.
Recovery from Botox®
The only side effect that should be noticeable after a Botox® injection is mild swelling near the injection site. Other than that, you should feel no discomfort whatsoever and may resume normal activities immediately after you leave our office.
How Much Does Botox® Cost?
The cost of a Botox® injection will depend on the amount of medication needed. Dr. Sood will discuss the cost and our various payment options with you during your consultation. For your convenience, we accept personal checks, major credit cards, cash, and CareCredit® financing.
Is Botox® Right for Me?
South Jersey patients who are plagued by forehead wrinkles or crow’s feet and want to look younger without undergoing a surgical procedure, Botox® could be an excellent option for them.

What to Expect During Your Botox® Consultation
