Botox® by Jonathan

Dentist in Hawthorne, NJ

Dermatologists, Plastic Surgeons or Doctors – Experience Matters

Dr. Jonathan Abenaim is proud to offer his patients BOTOX®, Cosmetic Treatments. One of the most important factors to consider when choosing to get Botox is to choose the right person to do the job. Dr. Abenaim was one of the first dentists to offer Botox and has been practicing this service for 10 years. If you think about it, Dentists are head and neck specialists with specific training in the face and nerves for TMJ, mouth and teeth related issues.  How about a Dermatologist (skin doctor)? When comparing a generic Dermatologist against Dr. Jon’s 10 years of experience in Hawthorne, its easy to decide that Dr. Abenaim is the best choice. Botox injections are located in the same areas and dental related injections. In this case, dentists know more about the nerves in this area than most other doctors*.

BOTOX® Cosmetic Treatment is a revolutionary approach to treating crows feet, worry lines and laugh lines. Want to look the best? All these things can be a thing of the past. Botox injections work to:

  • Improves dynamic lines and wrinkles due to facial expressions
  • Diminishes creases around the eye area including crow’s feet
  • Lifts eyebrows
  • Improves frown lines of the forehead
  • Improves worry lines between the eyebrows
  • Reduces lines of the lower face and neck


Before Treatment

Have questions about Botox injections? The best action is to come to our Hawthorne office for a consultation where Dr. Abenaim can look at your face and skin status.

To better understand your overall health, our top team at the Hawthorne, NJ office will evaluate your medical history prior to surgery. In addition, a complete examination of your eyes is made in order to decide the most effective injection sites. Feel free to ask Dr. Jonathan any questions relating to this skin care treatment.

The areas on the skin that will be treated are marked and digital photographs are taken in order to determine the amount of improvement after surgery.

The BOTOX® Cosmetic Procedure

A Botox injection feels like a small sting similiar to a shot of novocaine or a blood test.  The pain is very low and quick to disappear.  The entire procedure can be done in just one appointment. For the best results, we recommend our patients to check with our office how many times they need to wait in between appointments. Each patient’s botox treatment period varies.  As the manufacturer states, patients over 65 years old may not see dramatic results.

Botox is best for expression lines, crows feet. It can not treat skin sagging.

Post-Treatment Information (Looking your best)

Sometimes patients can see some side effects like bruising. These darker areas will quickly fade away. You can continue with your normal day to day activities right after your appointment.

Another side effect that may occur – temporary weakness of muscles (close to the treatment) or in very rare cases- an eyelid droop.  The good news is that the botox injection is temporary, and is reversible should these side effects occur.   Dr. Abenaim will explain all risks associated at the time of your consultation at our Hawthorne, NJ office.

Softening of lines can be seen by patients within 2,3, or 4 days.  The best results peak at 2 weeks. At that time, you can evaluate whether there is a need for additional line reduction.

After treatment, Dr.Abenaim will have a skin care recommended plan for each patient.  Review your typical skincare regimen and be sure to let the doctor know if you have any other medicines or drugs that may cause side effects.
