Botox is an injectable filler that can help to eliminate wrinkles like frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s-feet, eleven lines (vertical lines between your eyebrows), and bunny lines around the nose. Botox treatments greatly reduce the appearances of these wrinkles and also prevents the formation of new wrinkles.

Botox injections are performed in an office setting, have virtually no downtime, and its effects are reliable. This proven cosmetic solution will make you look refreshed, revitalized, and younger.

Why Choose Dr. Mesa for Botox?

Dr. Mesa treats hundreds of patients from Livingston, New Jersey (NJ) and New York City (NYC) with Botox every year and is very experienced in its application. 

Many Botox “injector doctors” claim they have extensive experience in Botox treatments; however they hide they haven’t performed the required accredited training or comply with the credentialing to do so (e.g. dentists, internists, obstetricians and gynecologists, etc.).

Dr. Mesa’s double fellowship training in craniofacial surgery (reconstructive surgery of the face) and aesthetic surgery (cosmetic surgery of the face and body), in addition to his plastic surgery residency training, makes him an ideal doctor to administer Botox. The natural and youthful results of his patients treated with Botox support this statement. Additionally, since Dr. John Mesa is a board-certified plastic surgeon, you are guaranteed that he has undergone the required U.S. accredited training to perform Botox injections.

How Does Botox Work? 

Very small amounts of Botox (botulinum toxin), a purified protein, are injected into specific areas to improve lines, wrinkles and furrows. The injection blocks nerve impulses, muscle activity that causes the frown lines is reduced, and a smoother look results.

Botox is administered with very short and small needles making the injection process very comfortable. No anesthesia is required and downtime is definitely not expected afterward. Bruising is uncommon. Just a 3 to 4 days after this completely injection treatment you will develop a younger, more relaxed appearance

What Can Botox do for me?

Quick, safe and effective, Botox reduces or eliminates facial lines and wrinkles for up to four months with no downtime and little to no discomfort. Through a series of tiny injections, BOTOX gives you a rejuvenated look by smoothing crow’s feet beneath the eyes, frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal lines across the forehead, worry lines around the mouth, and lines on the neck.

What areas of my face can be treated with Botox?

Dr. John Mesa uses Botox in Livingston, NJ to treat frown lines, crow’s feet, worry lines, and other areas of the face. Dr. Mesa works with each patient to understand your goals for treatment and to maximize the effect.

When will I see results from a Botoxtreatment?

Within 3 to 4 days, you may see a marked improvement in the moderate-to-severe frown lines between your brows. Lines continue to improve for up to 30 days, and results can last for up to 4 months. Individual results may vary.

Is treatment with Botox painful?

Botox administration is associated with minimal discomfort (“butterfly-like kiss”) which is quite brief. Prior to injection, Dr. John Mesa may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or topical anesthetic cream.

Why not go to a Primary Care Physician (Family Practitioner), Internists, Dentists, Gynecologists, Obstetrician or “cosmetologists” for Botox?

Practitioners like Internists and other doctors who are not formally residency-trained in the administration of Botox injections have been found to suffer a much higher rate of complications, as it’s a side interest to them, and not a treatment they’re certified to do all day long. One of the most common complaints is over treatment, with too much Botox being injected into the skin, resulting in drooping eyelids, sagging brows, or a frozen forehead.

What are the risks of Botox?

Risks or side effects of Botox are rare and are usually mild and temporary. The most common side effects caused by Botox are headaches and temporary redness or bruising of the skin at the site of injection. In rare cases, slight drooping of an eyelid or asymmetry of expression may occur. Any risk of complication can be reduced by choosing a qualified and experienced physician

Are there other treatment options?

In addition to BOTOX, there are two other FDA approved botulinum toxins on the US market: Dysport and Xeomin. Dr. Mesa considers that Botox provides the best results to the vast majority of his patients.
