Botox®Cosmetic is the fastest growing and most popular cosmetic treatment performed in the world. Millions of procedures are perfomed annually. Botox is is used to reduce or eliminate wrinkles caused by hyper activity of the facial muscles.
When you receive Botox, you can expect smoothing of your facial wrinkles and a more youthful and relaxed appearance for a period of 3 to 5 months. The areas most commonly treated are the glabellar area (between the eye brows), the forehead, "crows feet" aroung the eyes, wrinkles around the mouth, and "chemical brow lift". The appointment is about 15 minutes long and it is virtually painless to administer. Botox®Cosmetic is extremely safe so there are no worries of negative outcomes.
Juvederm® is a dermal filler. It is a hyaluronic acid filler that is also used in similar products like Restalyne® and Prevelle®. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that occupies most of the space between your individual skin cells. As such, there is no irritation, rejection or allergy to the material.These fillers are effictive at smoothing facial characteristics where heavy folds or lines exist. Commonly, the folds between your nose and mouth (Parentheses lines), and the folds between the corners of your mouth and chin (Marionette lines) deepen with age, and can be easily treated with dermal fillers. Additionally, dermal fillers can be used to enhance your lip volume or shape.
These products last anywhere from 3 months to 1 year, with Juvederm® being one of the longest lasting, as well as one of the smoothest formulations on the market. We also use Prevelle® Silk, a dermal filler that is less expensive and only lasts 3 months. It is great for getting a preview of what fillers can do for you without the worry of a long term result.
