Perhaps this year you’ve decided it’s time to say goodbye to those pesky lines and wrinkles on your face and look as good as you feel. It's the perfect time to give your appearance a little makeover and our Morristown, Mt. Arlington, Liberty Corner and Bridgewater, NJ, dermatologists have just the thing.
What is Botox?
Botox is a simple cosmetic procedure that uses a series of thin needles that contain a special substance that prevents facial muscles from contracting, which softens the appearance of lines and wrinkles. These injections contain a purified form of botulinum toxin and it’s a great way to temporarily smooth away lines and wrinkles caused by smiling, frowning or squinting.
Is Botox right for me?
If you are someone who hates their forehead wrinkles, lines around the mouth and chin, or crow’s feet (lines around the eyes), then you are in luck. Botox is a fast and easy way to reduce these wrinkles in just a matter of minutes. If you are someone who wants to refresh their skin and get a more youthful appearance without dealing with post-treatment downtime then this could be a great option for you.
How do I get Botox in Morristown, Mt. Arlington, Liberty Corner or Bridgewater?
When you come into our office we will examine your skin and talk with you about your specific treatment goals to make sure that Botox will be able to give you the results that you want. From there, we can easily administer the injections, as it only takes a couple of minutes. Of course, we know the idea of having needles injected into your face can seem a bit scary but the needles are so thin that most people don’t notice more than slight pinch before its all over.
Of course, if you still feel a bit squeamish or you have a low pain tolerance then we can apply a numbing ointment to the areas beforehand to ease any discomfort. You won’t immediately see results when you leave our office but you will notice the lines and wrinkles softening over the next few days.
How long do results last?
Unfortunately, Botox results don’t last forever; however, you will enjoy your results for about three to four months. If you love your appearance and wish to keep your results longer you can choose to come back in for follow up treatments.
If you are interested in getting Botox in Morristown, Mt. Arlington, Liberty Corner or Bridgewater, NJ. then pick up the phone and call Affiliated Dermatologists. We would be happy to schedule a consultation. Isn’t it time you felt better about your appearance?
Looking younger doesn't have to involve complicated procedures with long recovery periods. Injectable Juvederm offers a simple way to smooth the lines and wrinkles that make you look older or tired. The dermatologists at Affiliated Dermatologists in Mt. Arlington, Liberty Corner, Bridgewater, and Morristown, NJ, share a few things you should know about Juvederm.
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm treatment increases facial volume and plumps sagging skin, decreasing lines and wrinkles. The filler is composed of hyaluronic acid, a fluid that's naturally found in your body.
Who can benefit from Juvederm in Mt. Arlington, Liberty Corner, Bridgewater, and Morristown?
Juvederm can improve your appearance if you have moderate to severe lines, wrinkles, and folds. It's an excellent choice if you're concerned about:
- Loss of Volume in Your Cheeks: Loss of volume is an unfortunate consequence of aging that can cause your cheeks to sag. Adding a little Juvederm lifts your cheeks, enhancing your appearance.
- Nasolabial Fold and Marionette Lines: Nasolabial fold lines reach from your nose to the corners of your mouth, while marionette lines extend downward from the corners of your lines. Both types of lines can be softened with Juvederm.
- Thin Lips: Collagen improves the elasticity of your skin and keeps your lips full. As you age, collagen production begins to decline, which can thin your lips. Juvederm plumps the lips, restoring the lost volume.
- Vertical Lip Lines: Vertical lip lines due to smoking or aging disappear after Juvederm treatment.
- Creases: Juvederm is also a good solution if you have creases around your nose or between your eyes.
- Under Eye Issues: Loss of volume due to aging is particularly noticeable under your eyes. Juvederm restores volume and offers natural-looking results.
- Scars: Do you have a few noticeable scars after a teenage battle with acne? Juvederm injections can fill those depressions that have plagued you for years.
How long will Juvederm results last?
Juvederm is gradually absorbed by your body and generally lasts nine to 12 months. Fortunately, it's easy to maintain your improved appearance by scheduling regular follow up appointments. Call the dermatologists at Affiliated Dermatologists in Mt. Arlington, Liberty Corner, Bridgewater, and Morristown, NJ, at (973) 267-0300.
If your double chin has you feeling down about your appearance, your dermatologist may have just the treatment to help you get rid of your double chin for good.

Find out more about Kybella with Affiliated Dermatologists and Dermatologic Surgeons with locations in Mt. Arlington, Morristown, Liberty Corner, and Bridgewater, NJ.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is an FDA-approved treatment which destroys the fat cells underneath the chin to provide a slimmer, improved look.

Kybella is safe to use and generally does not have any downtime after the procedure.
Am I a candidate for Kybella?

You should alert your doctor to any medications you take regularly or medical conditions you have.
If you think you could benefit from Kybella, you should consult with your dermatologist to ensure that this is the best treatment for you.

Contrary to a popular myth, warts do not come from frogs. In fact, a wart is a common and treatable condition which can cause you to feel embarrassed by your appearance or even may become painful in some situations. Find out more about treating your warts with your dermatologists at Affiliated Dermatologists and Dermatologic Surgeons with locations in Mt. Arlington, Morristown, Liberty Corner, and Bridgewater, NJ.
What causes a wart?
A wart comes from an infection of the topmost layer of skin. The infection, caused by a virus, usually enters the skin through a tiny cut or scratch, often not even visible to the naked eye. The virus causes the cells to multiply too quickly, forming a growth, or wart. The virus is usually transferred by direct skin-to-skin contact or situations like using a towel someone with a wart used before you. Avoiding coming into contact with the virus via good hand washing techniques and simple changes like wearing shower shoes in public, damp places can help you avoid getting a wart.
Kinds of Warts
There are several types of warts, including:
- Common warts: A common wart grows most often on the toes or fingers and is round and grainy in appearance. The wart may be grey in color.
- Plantar warts: These warts occur on the bottom of the feet and, thanks to the pressure of the body’s weight, grow inward. Many people who suffer from plantar warts describe them as feeling as though they have a rock in their shoe. The wart may look like a small hole with thick, callused skin around it.
- Flat warts: Flat warts occur most commonly on the face, arms, and thighs. They are flat and small, with colors ranging from pink to brown.

Broken blood vessels around the nose can affect your looks and make you look older than you really are. Thanks to an innovative treatment called the Cutera Excel V Laser, broken blood vessels can go away after just a few appointments with a dermatologist at Affiliated Dermatologists in Morristown, Mt. Arlington, Liberty Corner, and Bridgewater, NJ.
What Causes Broken Blood Vessels?
When the blood vessels on the face become more pronounced, red, and swollen they’re called “broken vessels.” It is an issue that commonly shows up around the nose or eyes. It can be caused by any of the following:
- Overexposure to the sun over a period of time.
- Allergic reactions.
- Having a cold and blowing the nose too much.
- A systemic medical condition like lupus.
- Skin conditions like rosacea.
- Heredity (this may be more common in people with a certain genetic background).
- The basic process of aging.
The Cutera Excel V Laser
As natural as broken blood vessels may be, many patients don’t want to live with them for cosmetic reasons. The Cutera Excel V Laser is a small handheld device that is waved over the affected area. A laser beam emits waves of energy to reduce the appearance of red veins around the nose. Cutera addresses both vascular problems of the skin and problems with pigmentation.
Small Investment; Significant Results
Cutera treatments require a small investment in money and time compared to the great results you’ll achieve. Many patients see improvement after just a few sessions, which takes a matter of minutes for each appointment. You can relax knowing that you’ll have a comfortable experience—the Cutera wand includes a special mechanism that protects and cools your skin during the session.
Talk to a Dermatologist
One or two treatments with the Cutera Excel V Laser may be all you need to fix the broken blood vessels around your nose and face. Call 973-267-0300 today to schedule an appointment with a skin care doctor at Affiliated Dermatologists & Dermatologic Surgeons, PA in Morristown. We also have office locations in Bridgewater, Liberty Corner, and Mt. Arlington, NJ to address your other dermatologic needs.
