We proudly offer Botox Cosmetic neuromodulator injections. Botox was the the first FDA-approved neuromodulator and it is largely responsible for the explosion in popularity. Botox Cosmetic injections reduce underlying muscle activity that causes moderate-to-severe “frown lines”, “crow’s feet” and “forehead lines”.
By limiting the mobility of the muscles in these areas of your face Botox injections can effectively create a visibly smoother appearance. Patients typically begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to four months for moderate to severe frown lines.
Hyaluronic acid is something that is naturally occuring in your body. The chemical compound found in fillers like Juvéderm Voluma® XC is already present throughout your body. It works to keep various parts functioning properly, whether that’s through lubricating joints or moisturizing your skin.
As we age the amount of naturally occurring hyaluronic acid in your bodies can diminish. The reduced production can contribute to the formation of wrinkles and hollows which can make you look older.
Juvéderm Voluma® XC and similar products can introduce hyaluronic acid back into the places on your face where you need it most, filling in wrinkles and rounding out regions that have sunken in.
No. Unlike various lifts and surgical options, dermal fillers like Juvéderm® are temporary solutions. Depending on brand and location, the benefits will usually last anywhere from months to years. Over that time, your body will slowly and safely reabsorb the hyaluronic acid (again, it’s a naturally occurring substance in your body).
Juvéderm® can be injected in many areas where you need more volume. Juvéderm® Ultra is designed to address smile lines (also known as parenthesis), corner lines, marionette lines, and vertical lip lines. Facial fillers may be applied to hollows at the temples or under the eyes, and even to correct droopy eyebrows. Our team of medical aesthetics experts may suggest other options, too, such as a chemical peels or Botox, to bring about the desired results.
BOTOX injections are also a temporary treatment. The visible effects last longer in some people than in others, but most people can expect the results of their treatments to last for three to six months.
BOTOX® Cosmetic Injections have been approved by the FDA for wrinkle treatment in the U.S. since 2002. It was safely and widely used in Europe and Canada for many years before that. If you’re concerned about safety, there is no substitute for experience.
