Botox® and Juvéderm® treatments can be great, inexpensive alternatives to cosmetic surgery. They smooth creases, lines, and wrinkles in the face, leaving patients with a younger, more rested and relaxed appearance.
Botox is a prescription medication that is injected into specific small muscles in the face that, when contracted, cause frown and laugh lines. It inhibits movement in those muscles, smoothing and softening the skin to give you a more youthful look.
Botox treatment doesn’t take very long, and the injections themselves only take a few seconds. Sometimes patients experience mild discomfort, redness, or bruising, but these effects will disappear gradually over the course of a week. After treatment, you can return to your normal activities, but you should avoid lying down or engaging in rigorous exercise for at least four hours.
You will start seeing results within a week, and the improvement will continue throughout the first thirty days. Results typically last three to six months, after which you can repeat the treatment.
Juvéderm is a form of hyaluronic acid. In its natural state, this substance helps supply nutrients to the skin from the bloodstream. When injected into the lines and creases around the mouth, it holds water near the surface of the skin, which fills in the lines in a soft and completely natural way. It also acts as a cushion, supporting facial structures that lose elasticity as we age.
Juvéderm is also used to provide fullness to the cheeks and lips. It is a long-lasting treatment that lasts from eight to twelve months.
