Botox® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) causes relaxation of facial muscles. The product works by blocking the communication between nerve endings and their surrounding muscles. Botox is injected into specific regions to treat overactive muscles that cause wrinkles with facial animation. The effect of is temporary and repeat treatments are necessary periodically to maintain the softening of facial furrows and creases.
Combat the signs of aging and significantly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with Botox. Botox is safe, effective, and causes relaxation of the muscle it is injected into, resulting in softening of fine lines and wrinkles for a more youthful appearance. Botox can be injected for forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, lateral eyebrows, bunny lines, gummy smile, vertical lip lines, a downturned mouth, pebbled chin, neck wrinkles and undefined jawline.
Juvedérm® is a gel-based filler composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural constituent of the dermis, the second layer of skin. Naturally occurring hyaluronic acid lends structure, firmness, and volume to the skin. Although abundant in youth, the passage of time and exposure to environmental factors such as ultraviolet light exposure decreases the presence of hyaluronic acid in the skin. Hyaluronic acid attracts water to the area of placement, “plumping” the treated areas and decreasing the presence of facial lines, wrinkles, and folds.
Generally, fillers are used for nasolabial folds (from the nose to the edges of the lips), and may also be used to plump lips.
