New Jersey Botox Providers Dr. Zubowski & Dr. Gandolfi
WHAT ARE BOTOX® INJECTIONS?
Botox® injections are an effective nonsurgical solution for reducing wrinkles and frown lines commonly found on the forehead, mouth and jaw, and around the eyes. Our Botox injections are a simple facial rejuvenation procedure performed by Dr. Robert Zubowski or Dr. Brad Gandolfi. This procedure will leave your skin feeling smoother and appearing more refreshed.
WHAT IS BOTOX?
Botox is the cosmetic form of a type of neurotoxin produced from botulinum toxin. It is an injectable drug that is FDA approved for providing cosmetic improvement such as smoothing frown lines around the eyes, forehead and neck. Botox is often confused with injectable fillers such as Radiesse™ and Restylane®. Comparatively, these dermal fillers work differently, plumping up tissue so that wrinkles diminish, whereas Botox blocks the nerve impulses to temporarily weaken the muscles that cause wrinkles. Botox temporarily works on the facial muscles responsible for creating crow’s feet, neckbands, and lip, forehead or eyebrow lines, erasing years of wrinkles and helping you to look more energetic and refreshed.
HOW IS BOTOX PERFORMED?
At the Robert Zubowski MD Center for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, Dr. Zubowski or Dr. Gandolfi will expertly inject Botox into the desired areas to treat wrinkles and facial creases.
Unlike some practices where treatments are administered by nurses, each of our Botox injections are performed by Dr. Zubowski or Dr. Gandolfi. This treatment takes about 10 minutes and is nearly pain free. It is done with a very fine needle that minimizes the discomfort. For your comfort we now offer Pro-Nox, a patient-controlled inhaler that delivers a combination of 50% oxygen and 50% nitrous oxide to alleviate pain and anxiousness. Simply ask for it.

Your Botox cosmetic procedure begins when Botox is injected into the facial muscles around the forehead, nose and sides of the chin that form lines and wrinkles. You may be asked to squint, frown and raise your eyebrow so that your muscle interactions can be assessed and targeted. Botox injections will then be placed in targeted areas. Upon injection you may feel a slight sting but with very little discomfort afterwards. During your consultation, the doctor will discuss the benefits of the treatment as well as risks and possible side effects.
HOW LONG DOES BOTOX LAST?
The results of your Botox cosmetic treatment appear between three to 10 days. Your treated area should look great and maintain its improved appearance for three to six months, or longer. If you continue your Botox cosmetic treatments, the result from each subsequent treatment will last longer; that’s why it’s important to schedule your next treatment as soon as any muscular function returns.
HOW MUCH DOES BOTOX COST?
The treatment cost of Botox injections is $500 for one facial area treated, $775 for two facial areas treated and $900 for three facial areas treated.
