Botox has been used clinically since 1977 for cosmetic reasons. Integrative Behavioral Care in Summit, NJ now uses Botox to treat depression, anxiety and cosmetic rejuvenation. More than half of depressed subjects had major improvement of their mood.
All Botox treatments and injections are performed by a licensed physician.
• Depression is not a mental imbalance: it is a chemical imbalance.
• It is believed that Botox helps regulate an imbalance of chemicals in the brain.
30 patients with high levels of chronic and treatment-resistant depression were enrolled. Patients were randomly assigned a single injection of Botox or a single injection of saline placebo (”fake treatment”).
Six weeks after a single treatment, the Botox group had an average 47.1% reduction in depression symptoms vs. 9.2% in the placebo group.

• Lazy Eye
• Muscle Contractures

Some patients state the treatment is “pain free” while others experience only minimal discomfort. Because your facial muscles are small, we use a very fine needle to inject a tiny amount of material into the area where you want to erase wrinkles and lines. Depending on the depth of your lines, multiple injections may be needed. You may experience a small “pin prick” but anesthetic is unnecessary. Best of all, injections are quick and convenient. You can return to regular activities immediately following treatment.
