“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.”

BEFORE & AFTER PHOTOS
Botox is a minimally invasive facial rejuvenation treatment that can help to reduce the look of dynamic lines and wrinkles. These lines and wrinkles can be a result of sun exposure, age, or genetics1. When considering Botox injections, it is essential to choose a highly trained physician to ensure optimal results.

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. Our physicians have extensive training in the use of Botox and even teach other physicians how to use advanced techniques to achieve the best and most long-lasting results.
How Does Botox Work?
As we age, repetitive facial movements such as frowning and squinting cause lines and creases that become exaggerated when we use our facial muscles to make certain expressions.
By relaxing overactive muscles and preventing repetitive motions, Botox reduces the signs of aging2 and smooths out wrinkles and fine lines.3
No other non-surgical procedure can duplicate the positive effects of Botox aside from plastic surgery. Botox injections are the most popular aesthetic procedure in the world today4, with millions of treatments done each year. This proven cosmetic solution will make you look refreshed, revitalized, and younger in no time at all.
At Reflections, we use Botox to treat various areas, such as:
- Frown lines
- Creating a NonSurgical Brow Lift or Correcting Brow Asymmetry
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead wrinkles
- Worry lines
- Under-eye lines
- Vertical lipstick lines
- Lip Flip
- Downturned mouth (or frowning mouth)
- Gummy smile
- Overly developed obicularis muscle (muscle band around eye)
- Peach-pit chin (dimpling and wrinkling on the chin)
- Jaw slimming (reduction of an overly square jaw and TMJ treatment)
- Bunny lines (on your nose)
- Overly active sweat glands (hyperhydrosis sweating)
- Neck Bands
We work with each patient to understand your goals for treatment and to maximize the effect. We find young patients interested in preventing the signs of aging, appearing younger, and contouring the face. On the other hand, for patients who are in their mid-40s and beyond, treatment often focuses not so much around looking 20 forever, but rather looking great for their age, taking years off their appearance. These distinctly different goals often lead to very different treatment plans, but the result is always kept natural by our experienced injectors.
Botox For Hyperhidrosis
An exciting development is the FDA-approved use of Botox to treat hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating. 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 sweat. Botox temporarily blocks the nerve signals that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive these signals, the severe sweating stops.
The positive benefits of Botox treatments lasts typically at least six months. 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 Botox for treating hyperhidrosis is most effective when performed by a cosmetic physician who has received specialized training and has extensive experience with this particular Botox procedure.
Botox New Jersey Consultation
To achieve a younger, smoother, wrinkle-free appearance, New Jersey area patients should schedule a consultation at Reflections Center today. When you come in for your appointment, our experience level gives us the ability to treat you on the same day of your consultation.
Consultations are always free with Botox in New Jersey. During your appointment, you’ll meet with one of our board-certified physicians and discuss your goals and the areas that bother you most. We’ll create a customized treatment plan for your unique concerns, and you can be in and out of our office within an hour. To schedule your complimentary consultation today, please contact our office.
Botox injections require a delicate touch and accuracy, so we at the Reflections Center make use of every tool we have available to ensure the best results. For example, by using Accuvein vein visualizing technology, we’re able to accurately map sensitive areas to avoid bruising and deliver the injection with precision. In the infrequent situation where a bruise does appear, we offer complimentary laser treatments to expedite bruise healing.
Botox injections are quick, taking about 5-15 minutes to complete the actual treatment, and don’t require you to take any time off from work, social outings, or working out.
Our practice uses a specialized, fine needle for Botox injections, making the non-invasive process very comfortable. No anesthesia (numbing) is required, and downtime is not expected afterward.
In the hands of skilled injectors, you should expect to still have natural facial movement and expressions after Botox, just with slightly less intensity. This effect helps protect the skin from the damage of frequent creasing and crinkling from muscles that cause wrinkles to form.
After only one treatment, our patients realize Botox is not merely about treating wrinkles. Botox services can gently reshape and lift the brows and open the eyes, giving you a refreshed and naturally youthful appearance. These amazing results create a refreshed, more youthful appearance.
The results of Botox have been clinically proven to be fully effective for 3 months5 in new patients. However, there is anecdotal consensus among cosmetic surgeons that using Botox regularly can increase each treatment’s longevity. It is best to have the next treatment before the effects of the last one fully wear off. That way, the muscles never get a chance to fully recover and your smoother, more youthful complexion can be maintained.
Friends and family members will remark that you look terrific, but won’t know exactly what has changed!
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 for the vast majority of our patients. However, every patient is different, and our physicians have the resources and expertise to use these other products when the situation calls for it.
Our AquaGold Fine Touch system is a technique we offer to those looking for a better, more complete facial rejuvenation. With our microneedling infusion method, we offer MicroBotox and MicroRejuve.
MicroBotox is an option for patients who are concerned about oily skin, fine lines, and large pores. Oily skin is a result of overactive sebaceous glands, which are glands in the skin that secrete oils to keep skin and hair lubricated. In some people, these glands can be set to overdrive which leaves your skin looking shiny and your pores prone to buildup.
MicroBotox is a new injectable that can be combined with your Botox treatment to reduce the appearance of oily skin and shrink large pores. This high-precision injectable was developed on the foundation of Botox but specialized to target overactive pores. The injection only affects sebaceous glands, causing them to shrink and significantly reducing oil production.
MicroRejuve is a dual treatment of Botox and hyaluronic acid fillers delivered through the Aquagold System. The combination of Botox and dermal fillers is a one-two punch against the development of future wrinkles6 and the elimination of current fine lines and wrinkles.
What Botox treatments does Reflections Center offer?
Botox has many different uses. It is primarily used to prevent movement-based wrinkles in the face, which most commonly include frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines, lipstick lines, and other wrinkles or folds caused by a lifetime of muscle movement. By relaxing these muscles, Botox works to smooth the face and prevent wrinkles and lines from deepening. It can also create drastic results if your face naturally appears angry or tired due to a furrowed brow or frown lines.
Sometimes, however, we can reduce the effect of one muscle, and in doing so, allow another muscle pulling in the opposite direction to overpower it, creating a desired change within the face7. Some good examples of this are a Botox browlift or a pouty lip flip.
We also use small amounts of Botox to relax overactive muscles, even when they aren’t causing wrinkles, to create a sense of harmony and balance within the face. For example, jawline Botox is used to relax and balance overly gummy smiles and jaw-clenching that often leads to a square, masculine jaw in female patients (sometimes the result of TMJ, this has been popularly called “facial slimming” in the media). Patients with bells palsy and other muscle asymmetries may also benefit from these types of injections.
Botox is classified as a neuromodulator, meaning it can also effectively treat medical conditions caused by unwanted muscle movements, cramps, or spasms by blocking the receptors that receive movement signals from the brain. These conditions can include migraines, hyperhidrosis, overactive pores, redness, unfavorable skin texture, and TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorder).
We offer many different options for Botox treatment, and during your consultation, our expert providers at Reflections Center can determine whether Botox might be an option for both your cosmetic and medical needs.
What qualifications do the doctors at Reflections hold for injecting Botox?
The experience and knowledge of an injector are the number one predictors of the outcome of any injectable procedure. The problem is, it can be very difficult for a patient to accurately discern these things when selecting their provider.
First of all, it’s helpful to know that board certification in no way qualifies these things about any provider. Dermatologists and plastic surgeons typically do not receive training in cosmetic injectable procedures as part of their school or professional training. That leaves all providers seeking out their own training for how to inject patients. For some doctors, this means a weekend course. The best injectors know their learning is never complete and actively seek to be a part of the community of injectors by exchanging ideas and techniques with other top physicians.
There are some objective ways to gauge a provider’s skill level. One way is to carefully study their before and after gallery. Skilled doctors not only provide ample examples of their work, but a wide variety of injection techniques on a wide variety of ages, genders, and types of patients.
When it comes to experience, you can seek out reviews and awards to accurately gauge how long a provider has been injecting and how many patients they’ve seen. For example, long-standing providers should have older reviews, and will often have reviews where patients say things like, “I’ve been coming here for 15 years and wouldn’t trust anyone else.” Awards are also issued by Allergan and Galderma to the top practices. These awards tell you who is buying the most products from these companies, and presumably injecting the most (as it would be prohibitively expensive not to be injecting everything you purchase). For Allergan, makers of Botox, Juvederm, and Voluma, the top distinction used to be Diamond but has changed names to Top 250. Our practice has been Diamond or Top 250 for nearly 10 years now.
Why Choose Reflections Center?
Inexperienced practitioners like dentists and other doctors who don’t specialize in Botox injections have been found to suffer a much higher rate of complications8, due to their lack of knowledge and skill. One of the most common complaints we hear from patients who have seen other doctors is overtreatment – when too much Botox is 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 patients, who appear younger and revitalized but are still fully expressive9. It has also created a loyal patient following who realize that all Botox providers are NOT created equal!
In general, Botox is priced at $16 per unit at our practice. The number of units used is highly individual, but injections for wrinkles typically range from $250 to 650. Hyperhidrosis and migraine treatments require more Botox, and are thus more expensive. Botox for lip lines, lip flip, and gummy smiles are the most affordable, typically ranging between $50 to $250.
Because we value our loyal patients, Reflections Center offers a Reflections Rewards Plus Program, which includes Allē (formerly Brilliant Distinctions) enrollment in addition to our own exclusive rewards program, so you receive not only the amazing rebates and coupons from the manufacturer of Botox, but also earn points which can be redeemed for nearly any service at our practices.
Experience the best of Botox at Reflections. With Reflections approach to Botox you will look and feel years younger. We promise natural-looking results that you’ll love!
