What is Botox?
When you want to move a muscle, your brain sends a signal down a nerve, which then releases a chemical called a neurotransmitter from the end of the nerve; its job is to cross a gap and hitch a ride on the muscle which then starts the contraction process and you’re able to move your muscle. Simply put, Botox stops the release of the chemical from the nerve ending; your muscle relaxes as it doesn’t receive the signal to start moving until the effects of botox wears off in a few months.
What are the Benefits of Botox?
BOTOX COSMETIC is a purified protein that is commonly used to reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles. Its ability to relax isolated muscles enables Dr. Mattone to help patients look like a less tired, less stressed version of themselves. In addition to its most popular use to smooth away frown lines and worry lines between the eyebrows, Botox is used to successfully lift the eyebrows, correct uneven eyebrow heights, smooth horizontal forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, dimpled or lined chins, and lines around the mouth. Botox is also used on the neck to eliminate vertical banding and horizontal “necklace” lines.
Dr. Mattone provides relief from migraine and tension headaches through specific targeted Botox injections to literally clear patients’ heads. Botox can put an end to excessive under arm sweating for six months to a year with just one treatment session.
About Your Botox Procedure:
Results are extremely localized and will not affect other areas on your face. Your smile, laugh and facial expressions will remain the same. It takes just a few minutes for Dr. Mattone to administer tiny Botox injections directly into the facial muscles causing furrows and lines to relax in a matter of days; results may require 2 weeks to take full effect. Expect results to last between three to four months.
Dr. Mattone counsels patients to start Botox treatments early, so that expression lines, which occur only while making facial expressions, will not become permanently etched in their faces even at rest. After repeated use of botox, most patients require less and have longer intervals between treatments.
Dr. Mattone highly recommends the use of a patented award-winning liquid collagen/HA matrix nutracosmetic supplement which is clinically shown to erase your facial wrinkles from the inside out and provide hydration to your skin deep from within. This supplement supports longer lasting results and you may require less Botox over time.

Thin lips can be enhanced to create a natural, fuller look, and for those who wish, full lips can be made even poutier. Depressed scars due to acne or chicken pox can easily be eliminated. Dr. Mattone also uses dermal fillers to enhance and contour your cheeks, brows, jaw line and even ear lobes. The results are almost instantaneous, with little or no downtime.
