BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple, non-surgical procedure that smooths the deep, persistent lines and wrinkles that develop over time. BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments are quick and easy and are highly effective at giving a moderate brow lift, as well as smoothing
- Frown lines that appear between your brows
- Forehead wrinkles
- Smile lines or crow’s feet
- Corners of your mouth
- Chin dimples
- Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating
- Bunny lines or pursed mouth
- Marionette lines
- Fine lines around the mouth
- Platysmal banding (neck wrinkles and sagging)
How does BOTOX® Cosmetic work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic utilizes a natural, purified protein that is administered at very low doses to reduce the contractions of the muscles that cause those persistent frown lines that have developed over time. While the results are dramatic, it will not radically change your facial appearance. The muscles are simply relaxed, so you can still frown, smile, or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases.
What is a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment like?
BOTOX® Cosmetic procedures are fast, simple, and minimally invasive, and no anesthesia is required. Injections are administered with an ultra-fine needle directly into the area being treated. Discomfort is minimal and brief, and once complete, there is usually no discomfort. Most people return directly to work or normal activity following treatment.
What areas can be treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments can be performed in a number of locations, including between your brows, eye area, smile lines, and neck. Effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic appear within a few days and generally last from four to six months.
JUVÉDERM® Dermal Filler
JUVÉDERM® is an injectable gel that adds volume and smoothness to lips and skin, decreasing the appearance of folds and wrinkles. Consisting of hyaluronic acid (HA), it resembles the hyaluronic acid that is a natural substance already present in your body. It is long lasting but not permanent. HA fillers enhance your natural looks by restoring volume, creating softness and revitalizing your appearance.
How parentheses appear…
As you age, your skin changes. For example, it reduces production of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). Over time, the loss of HA in your skin results in facial wrinkles and folds, like those parentheses lines around your mouth.
JUVÉDERM® injectable gel replaces the HA your skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds. A breakthrough in HA dermal fillers, JUVÉDERM® is the first smooth-consistency HA gel and the only HA filler that’s FDA approved.
There is no preliminary testing required for JUVÉDERM®. With a simple injection, minor imperfections and signs of aging are evenly softened. Side effects, rare and usually mild to moderate lasted seven days or less and included temporary injection site reactions like redness, pain, firmness, swelling and bruising. Everyone will notice, but no one will know.
You can experience the benefits of JUVÉDERM® injectable gel in a quick, in-office procedure. Your healthcare professional eases JUVÉDERM® under your skin to instantly smooth out the wrinkles and folds on your face. You’ll see the difference immediately!
