Natural-looking and moving Botox results are our specialty.
These days, you can get your Botox treatments all over New Jersey – from the dentist, the gynecologist, or even when you take the kids for a check-up at your family practitioner. But, just as beauty is in the eye of the beholder, the beauty of Botox is in the hands of the syringe holder.
“When my daughter kept asking why I looked mad all the time, I got Botox on my forehead to ease the deep furrows between my eyebrows. Now I no longer look like I am constantly frowning. What I especially like is that I never look “done”. Dr. Chasin has a good eye and a light hand. People have commented lately that I’m looking good, but they can’t put their finger on exactly what it is.”

How Does Botox Work?
As we age, repetitive facial movements such as frowns and squints cause lines and creases that stick around. Patients from across New Jersey complain that people ask them if they are tired, worried, or angry, even when they’re feeling great. It’s a common problem, one that has a terrific solution – Botox.
No other procedure can duplicate the positive effects of Botox — in the experienced hands of the physicians at Reflections, this treatment is transformative.
Beyond New Jersey, Botox injections are the most popular aesthetic procedure in the world today, with millions of treatments done each year. This proven cosmetic solution will make you look refreshed, revitalized, and younger.
Before & After Photos
How Does Botox Work?
Botox is one brand of a protein that helps overactive muscles to relax. By relaxing overactive muscles and preventing repetitive motions, Botox allows the wrinkled skin to repair itself and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.
Just because a physician is offering Botox doesn’t mean they’re an expert injector, and experience and expertise matters when choosing a Botox provider — it can make the difference between looking natural, rested and beautiful, and having your brows arching higher than desired, or feeling as if your facial expressions have been frozen away.
At Reflections, our highly skilled physicians have performed tens of thousands of Botox injections, and we are one of the leading providers of Botox in the United States. We have extensive training in the use of Botox — we even teach other physicians — and use advanced techniques to achieve the best and most long-lasting results.
Our goal is always the same — make our patients look youthful and rested but totally natural. We can do this because we understand the nuances of your facial muscles and how they’ll react to the correct amount of Botox placed in precisely the right spot. Everyone’s anatomy is slightly different, and choosing an experienced provider who can customize the treatment to your exact needs makes a world of difference.
After only one treatment, our patients realize Botox is not merely about treating lines and wrinkles — it is much more than that. Botox therapy can gently reshape and lift the brows, rounding and opening the eyes. These amazing results create a refreshed, more youthful appearance.
Friends and family members will remark that you look terrific, but won’t know exactly what has changed!
Botox For Hyperhidrosis
An exciting development in the treatment of hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is the injection of Botox, or botulinum toxin, a FDA-approved natural, purified protein. Botox can disable the sweat glands for six to nine months, and sometimes longer, and helps you regain a normal life free of the stress and anxiety associated with excessive sweating.
How does it work?
It works by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive chemical signals, the severe sweating stops.
The positive effect from these treatments normally lasts at least six months. Botox has been available for over a decade and has been used to treat more than one million patients with various conditions, including spasticity, movement disorders, and facial wrinkles. With FDA approval, the United States joins more than 20 other countries that have already approved the use of Botox for excessive sweating.
The use of botulinum toxin for the treatment of hyperhidrosis is most effective when performed by a physician who has received special training and has experience with the procedure. Botulinum toxin injections require relatively little time and do not demand any restrictions in work or leisure activities.
During the procedure, a very fine needle is used to inject small amounts of Botox just under the skin near the sweat glands responsible for excessive perspiration. Multiple injections are given based on our assessment of the area that needs to be treated. Shortly after the injections, your sweating problems fade away.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does Botox work?
Just a few days after this completely noninvasive treatment you will develop a younger, more relaxed appearance.
Minute amounts of 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.
Tiny specialized needles are used for Botox injections, making the process very comfortable. No anesthesia is required and downtime is definitely not expected afterward. Bruising is uncommon.
What areas of my face can be treated with Botox?
At Reflections, we use Botox to treat frown lines, crow’s feet, worry lines, vertical lipstick lines, and other areas of the face. We work with each patient to understand your goals for treatment and to maximize the effect.
Are there other treatment options?
In addition to Botox, there are two other botulinum toxins on the market today, Dysport and Xeomin. At Reflections, we have found that Botox provides the best results to the vast majority of our patients. However, every patient is different, and our physicians have the resources and expertise to use these other agents when the situation calls for it.
Why not go to a dentist, gynecologist or family practitioner for Botox?
Inexperienced practitioners like dentists and other doctors who don’t specialize in 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 doing all day long. One of the most common complaints is overtreatment, with too much Botox being injected into the skin, resulting in drooping eyelids, sagging brows, or a frozen forehead.
The physicians at Reflections perform Botox injections all day long and believe in a less-is-more approach. This has led to many happy, natural looking patients, who appear younger and revitalized but are still fully expressive. It has also created a loyal patient following who realize that all Botox providers are NOT created equal!
What are the risks of Botox?
Side effects and complications are very uncommon. The most common would be a temporary decrease in brow height or an asymmetry in the brow. Localized pain, infection, inflammation, tenderness, swelling, redness, and/or bleeding/bruising are reported, but these effects are quite atypical. Side effects are extremely rare.
How long will my BOTOX® COSMETIC treatment last?
The results of Botox have been clinically proven to be fully effective for 3 months¹ in new patients. However, there is an anecdotal consensus among cosmetic surgeons that longevity usually increases with each additional treatment. It is best to have the next treatment before the effects of the last treatment fully wear off. That way, the muscles never get a chance to fully recover and your smoother, more youthful complexion can be maintained.
