Botox® and Dermal Fillers
Over time, as we naturally age, overactive muscle movement gradually wears away the collagen in our skin, causing the skin to crease and wrinkles to appear. Botox injections work by relaxing these muscles and reducing the lines around the eyes and forehead.
Maybe you've heard a friend talk about her experience with Botox®—and you think your friend looks great—but before you get treated, you’d like to know more about it.
Botox® is a non-surgical, aesthetic treatment for moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, on the forehead and around the eyes. Botox® works by reducing the contractions of the muscles that cause those persistent frown lines that have developed over time.
What to expect:
The day of your appointment. Allow time before your appointment for filling out forms and for consulting with the doctor or other member of the staff. You will also be asked about your expectations for treatment and if you have any allergies or any condition that would not make you a good candidate for Botox® treatments.
Before the procedure. You will be seated in a comfortable reclining chair, much like you find in a dentist's office. No anesthesia is required, although your provider may choose to numb the area with a cold pack.
The procedure. Your provider will determine where to administer the injections by examining your ability to move certain muscles in your brow area, forehead and around your eyes. The entire Botox® injection procedure takes approximately ten minutes.
After the procedure. There is no recovery time needed. You are ready to get on with your day!
Seeing results. Within days, you will notice an improvement in the expression lines where you were treated that will last up to six months.
What Is JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel?
As we age, our skin changes. Over time, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles and folds form. But, with Juvéderm® injectable gel, you don't have to just sit back and let it happen!
Juvéderm® is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps add volume and hydration to the area treated. Your treatment provider eases Juvéderm® injectable gel under the skin to instantly restore your skin's volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds known as your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds—the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).
Juvéderm® provides a smooth, natural look and feel—so everyone will notice (but no one will know)! In fact, studies show superior results of Juvéderm® compared to a collagen-based dermal filler.
- Almost 90% of all study volunteers who were treated with both Juvéderm® injectable gel and another dermal filler preferred Juvéderm®!
- Juvéderm® injectable gel is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is proven to be safe and effective for persons of color.
