Botox, Juvederm & Radiesse

Botox® will dramatically improve (or often eliminate) stubborn horizontal forehead lines and creases, scowl lines or "11's" between your eyebrows and crow's feet.

Botox® is not the choice for wrinkles around your mouth that are due to sagging skin and the breakdown of elasticity. To address these wrinkles, speak to our Physician regarding Juvederm and fillers. 

How Botox® Works

Dynamic wrinkles, such as crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles, are due the breakdown of elasticity in the skin due to many factors, to include overexposure to UV rasy and repetitive facial expression movement. Weakening and "paralyzing" the muscles responsible for these facial expressions can dramatically improve, and in many cases, eliminate these wrinkles. With Botox®, these muscles can be weakened without affecting your ability to show facial expressiveness.

The Procedure

Botox® is injected by our Licensed Physician in the office at the time of your appointment.  You may experience brief mild discomfort as you are being injected. Following injection, recovery is immediate: you may place make-up and return to work immediately. A few experience mild bruising that improves within a few days. You will begin to see improvement in your wrinkles within 24 hours and continue to see improvement for the next 14 days.

How Long Does Botox® Last?

Botox® results may last anywhere from four (4) to six (6) months depending upon the number of units/cc's that are given.  The range does vary from person to person.

What is JUVÉDERM
TM

JUVÉDERMTM  is the smooth gel filler that your doctor uses to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, you’ll get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year.

Everyone will notice, but no one will know.


What is it
: JuvedermTM is an injectable dermal filler used to fill the lines and wrinkles in the face. It is used by physicians, dermatologists, and plastic surgeons to soften deep folds in the face, especially the laugh lines around the nose and mouth or the nasolabial folds. Unlike collagen fillers, JuvedermTM uses a substance called hyaluronic acid which is already found in human skin tissues. An FDA-approved drug, JuvedermTM is also used for lip augmentation, plumping sagging hands, and lifting cheeks.

How does it work
: JuvedermTM fills the lines and wrinkles under the skin at the dermis layer unlike Botox, which relaxes the muscle under the wrinkle, or a traditional facelift, which removes excess skin with or without tightening the underlying muscles and redrapes it on the patient’s skin and neck. Hyaluronic acid stretches the cells in the skin known as fibroplasts. This creates new collagen, which helps decrease the appearance of creases and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid also attracts and binds moisture/water, which helps maintain fullness in the area of injection. The before and after effects of Juvederm™ may vary from individual to individual.

Side effects
: It is normal to experience bruising, redness, and soreness at the area of injection. There might be slight bleeding as well. But it is not a cause for concern unless it turns into an infection characterized by persistent pain, swelling, and new redness. Those allergic to collagen or certain human proteins may experience flu-like symptoms, rashes, or hives. In some cases, lumps or bumps may form under the skin after a while and this can be difficult to treat. JuvedermTM might be an easy procedure, which is free of any major side-effects.  Hyaluronic acid is absorbed by the body naturally and the procedure needs to be repeated after a few years.
