Why A Board Certified Dermatologist and Expert Injector?
A technology Dr. Rebecca Baxt uses to avoid and/or minimize bruising before injecting BOTOX Cosmetic is AccuVein Laser Finder. This vein illumination device allows for the visualization of patient’s veins to locate and avoid any “invisible” veins, AccuVein improves patient outcomes and prevent bruising.
Trust your BOTOX® Cosmetic injections only with a Board Certified Dermatologist!
BOTOX® Cosmetic is best performed by board certified dermatologists who are experienced, appropriately certified injectors. Dr. Rebecca Baxt and Dr. Saida Baxt are Board Certified Dermatologists who have performed thousands of BOTOX® Cosmetic injections and can help determine the best treatment for your skin and facial rejuvenation goals.
A clinical study in JAMA Dermatology found that BOTOX® Cosmetic and filler procedures are very safe when performed by experienced board-certified dermatologists. Side effects occurred in less than one percent of recipients, and most of these were minor; such as, minor headache or bruising. Beware of low cost “Botox” providers as there is no “generic” form of BOTOX® Cosmetic. The formulations, potency, and approved doses vary among botulinum toxin products. This means that one product cannot take the place of another. Make sure you are getting authentic BOTOX® Cosmetic. We receive our BOTOX® directly from the manufacturer, Allergan.
There is a lot of artistic vision to injecting BOTOX® Cosmetic. You want a very experienced and properly trained injector, not someone who takes a weekend course, or injects in a salon, gym, or in homes. BOTOX® Cosmetic is an FDA-approved drug and is a medical procedure best performed by a licensed board certified dermatologist with expertise in the art of cosmetic medicine and NOT a nurse, physician’s assistant (PA), dentist or other type of non-cosmetic doctor.

What is BOTOX® Cosmetic Made of?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is comprised of tiny amounts of a highly purified botulinum toxin protein refined from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum. BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet and prevent muscle activity and reduce the appearance of frown lines.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is FDA-approved for use in the US since 2002.
What Areas of the Face does BOTOX® Cosmetic Treat?
The most common area of injection is between the eyebrows where adults frequently develop a furrow as wells as crow’s feet and forehead lines. These troublesome areas respond very well to BOTOX® Cosmetic injections. Areas of the face that BOTOX® Cosmetic rejuvenates include:
- Forehead (creases, wrinkles and furrows)
- Glabellar lines (frown lines that appears as two lines between the eyebrows)
- Smile lines (around the eyes)
- Crow’s feet (around the eyes)
At BAXT CosMedical® we also use BOTOX® Cosmetic in select patients for “crinkling” of the lower eyelid, and for areas around the mouth. Additionally, BOTOX® Cosmetic works well in patients with troublesome neck bands and is used medically to treat hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating. (FDA-approval received in 2004 of primary axillary hyperhidrosis.)

However, since the late 2000s, the FDA has approved several competitors (Dysport®, Jeuveau™ and Xeomin®) for use in treating specific cosmetic renewal concerns. While the competitors use the same active ingredient, there are subtly different characteristics and effects that appeal to dermatologists and their patients.
One of newest neurotoxin to be FDA-approved is DAXXIFY®! This long-lasting, peptide-powered frown line treatment received FDA approval in September 2022. Dr. Rebecca Baxt is one of the first exclusive providers to offer this innovative injectable as an alternative to Botox® Cosmetic / Dysport®/ Xeomin®.

All these products are effective in the upper face.

BOTOX® Cosmetic and the many dermal fillers available have different ingredient formulations and indications for use. Products containing the botulinum toxin A, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, are injected into specific muscles to temporarily smooth out lines, wrinkles and folds that occur from facial movement, such as frowning, smiling, and squinting.
Dermal facial fillers are injected under the skin and are primarily used to restore lost facial volume, plump and contour lips, improve the contours of the face, soften wrinkles and creases, and improve the appearance of scars.
Dr. Baxt interview for Parade Magazine, March 2023
“If it’s injected properly, it weakens the muscles and you don’t have as many lines,” explains dermatologist Rebecca Baxt, MD, MBA, medical director of Baxt CosMedical® in New Jersey.
If you’re looking to smooth out those crow’s feet or the “11s” between your eyebrows, Botox isn’t your only option, either. While Botox was the first brand of neurotoxin to hit the market, other FDA-approved products include Dysport®, Jeuveau®, and Xeomin®. You can expect to need a new set of injections about every three to four months if you want to maintain the results, Dr. Baxt notes.” (Read full article)
