BOTOX®, is the cosmetic form of Botulinum Toxin Type A, and has become one of the most popular anti-wrinkle treatments available. As a non-surgical method of improving wrinkles, BOTOX® injections pose very few risks to most patients while producing a smoothing effect in just a few days that usually lasts for 3-4 months.
BOTOX® therapy is particularly effective on forehead creases, furrows between the eyebrows and for “crows feet”. Botulinum Toxin Type A blocks the nerve impulses, causing a temporary paralysis. By paralyzing the muscles that are used for scowling, brow raising and squinting, your skin does not form the permanent creases associated with aging. Creases that already exist will soften or disappear with time. In some cases, wrinkles are caused by excess skin and, surgery may be indicated.
Juvederm® is made of a substance that is a natural component found in skin. Juvederm® is used to plump isolated areas of your face; lips, scars and lower face wrinkles.
Juvederm® injections are usually done with a topical anesthetic cream or “dental blocks”. Side effects are slight, usually just stinging and temporary swelling.
The duration of results varies from patient to patient, but results typically last 6-9 months.
