Botox is a purified protein administered to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows. It can also stop creases from developing and increase the longevity of fillers like Juvéderm by minimizing the muscle movement that can cause them to dissipate. Our Registered nurses are highly skilled to deliver these products so that the look is natural.
BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of both moderate to severe crow’s feet lines and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the first and only FDA-approved prescription product that temporarily improves the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and moderate to severe crow’s feet in adults.
BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the surface
Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes, collagen depletion, or damage caused by free radicals. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. And when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow’s feet.
BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet to form over time.
Your doctor will inject BOTOX® Cosmetic into the muscles that cause frown lines and crow’s feet lines, temporarily reducing the activity of those muscles. The result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines.
Juvederm is an injectable gel that replaces the Hyaluronic Acid your skin has lost, bring back volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds. Many of the lines around the mouth, like the ones from your nose to the corners of your mouth and the ones on your upper lip can be minimized with the use of Juvéderm. Juvéderm will typically last about 6 months.
Approved in June 2006 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Juvéderm’s prime use is removing nasolabial folds, or “smile lines,” creases of skin which run from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth. It is also used as a lip augmentation agent, and to fill in hollow places and scars on the face. However, all hyaluronic acid facial filler products are eventually absorbed by the body, usually within six to nine months, causing the patient to undergo repeat injections to maintain the younger look.
Juvéderm is also used by physicians to plump lips, which also lose fat and internal shape with normal aging.
