How BOTOX Cosmetic Works
Repeated muscle contractions in the face (squinting, frowning, etc.) can cause lines to form on your face. Injections of BOTOX Cosmetic works under the skin targeting the muscles that cause crow’s feet and frown lines to develop resulting in a smoother, more relaxed and rejuvenated appearance.

What to Expect with BOTOX Cosmetic
Dr. Pernelli performs BOTOX Cosmetic injections in our South Jersey office. Depending on your aesthetic goals, he may need to administer several injections of the medication. Most patients do not describe this process as painful and treatment areas are numbed prior to treatment.
The entire treatment process typically takes less than 30 minutes – just 10 minutes for some patients! You can return to work or your regular activities immediately after the treatment. Results will become noticeable within 24-48 hours and your rejuvenated look should last 3-4 months. As the medication wears off, you may need to return for future treatments to maintain your look.
Dr. Pernelli will assess your appearance, your medical history and lifestyle habits to ensure that this will be a safe treatment for you. During your consultation you will be fully informed about any potential risks of having BOTOX Cosmetic injections.
