BOTOX® Cosmetic

When you smile, laugh, frown, or look puzzled, you contract the muscles of your face. Over time, these contractions produce permanent furrows and deep wrinkles in the skin, especially around the eyes and mouth, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead. These lines can make you look older, sad, angry or tired. BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments can not only prevent you from deepening these lines during natural facial movements, they can also erase these marks of aging, leaving you looking younger and refreshed.

What can BOTOX® treatments do for me?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the country and one of our most requested services. Quick, safe and effective, BOTOX® reduces or eliminates facial lines and wrinkles for up to six months with no downtime or surgery and little to no discomfort. Through a series of tiny injections, BOTOX® gives you a rejuvenated look by smoothing crow's feet beneath the eyes, frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal lines across the forehead, worry lines around the mouth, and lines on the neck.

The Importance of Choosing a Qualified Physician

Even though BOTOX® is not a surgical procedure, it is very important to choose a highly experienced and qualified physician when deciding to undergo BOTOX® treatments. Doctors who are less familiar with the technique could leave you looking "frozen" or perpetually surprised.

Our doctors are intimately familiar with BOTOX® Cosmetic, having successfully treated hundreds of patients at our office. Not only that, we also take the time to talk with each candidate before beginning the injections to find out what he or she wants to achieve and to determine how best to correct the problem area(s) so patients can be happy again with their smoother, younger-looking faces.

How does BOTOX work?

BOTOX® is made from a highly purified protein that is very safe when administered by a trained physician. The medication relaxes the muscles in the face that cause wrinkles. In this way, BOTOX® smoothes the lines in the skin that make you look tired or angry.

Can BOTOX be used for conditions besides wrinkles?

Yes. BOTOX® may also be useful for migraine headaches, excessive sweating, and eye and neck muscle spasms. Talk to us about whether BOTOX can help you.

JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel

JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel is a smooth consistency gel capable of restoring volume to skin and smoothing away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin that helps add volume and hydration.

What are the Benefits of JUVÉDERM?

JUVÉDERM® is a safe, effective, and a non-surgical option for those who want to diminish the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles. It is a non-animal dermal filler of smooth consistency that, unlike most hyaluronic acid fillers which have granular consistencies, allows for easy injection and instantly natural results.

JUVÉDERM® Ultra allows for versatility in contouring and volumizing wrinkles and folds. JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus is for correcting deeper and more severe wrinkles and folds. This allows for a completely personalized treatment tailored by your healthcare professionals to meet your needs. The results make you look naturally younger, refreshed and can last up to one year. JUVÉDERM® is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler proven safe and effective for persons of color.

Procedure & Recovery Time

The injection itself usually takes approximately 15 minutes.

Although anesthesia is not required, your doctor may use a topical or injectable anesthesia to numb the treatment area. JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel will be injected under your skin to add volume or fill wrinkles and folds. After the injection, your doctor may gently massage the treated areas.

There is minimal recovery time with JUVÉDERM®. For the first 24 hours following treatment, you should avoid strenuous exercise, excessive sun or heat exposure, and consumption of alcoholic beverages in order to help minimize risk of temporary redness, swelling, and/or itching at the treatment sites.

Some temporary symptoms, such as redness, pain, firmness, swelling, and bumps may occur but usually clear up on their own within a week. Any swelling at the injection site can be minimized with an ice pack for a brief period. Your healthcare provider will tell you when makeup may be applied after your treatment.

What are the results?

Most patients see an immediate improvement in the treatment areas and only need one treatment to achieve optimal results. Results may vary and touch up treatments may be required to maintain results, but JUVÉDERM® can smooth lines and wrinkles for up to a year.
