BOTOX® is a safe and effective medication used to eliminate facial wrinkles and frown lines in the brow, forehead and crow’s feet by decreasing the movement of the muscles in these areas. BOTOX® can brighten up your attitude and outlook, remove the wrinkles of time or make small improvements in an otherwise perfect face. BOTOX® has also been used successfully for patients with excessive sweating in the armpits, hands or feet.
BOTOX® is specially formulated with a purified protein, which relaxes the muscles when injected in the targeted area, ultimately reducing the appearance of frown lines and facial wrinkles. It is a minimally invasive procedure, allowing patients to return to normal daily activities immediately following the procedure. A topical anesthesia can be used, if necessary. FDA approved, BOTOX® is a safe and effective procedure that provides patients with results that can last anywhere from 3-5 months on average.
Following the BOTOX® procedure it is not uncommon to experience some minor swelling, redness or bruising around the targeted site. Patients can take Tylenol and/or use ice packs to help reduce swelling and relieve any discomfort. Other side effects include drooping of the eyelid, nausea, headache and respiratory infection, but only occur in about 1% of patients. They are considered temporary and usually resolve themselves within a few weeks.
Juvéderm™ is a smooth gel that is made up of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance found in your body. By carefully injecting Juvéderm underneath the skin, your skin can be completely rejuvenated, ultimately adding volume and reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds. It offers patients a safe and effective treatment with little to no down-time. Juvéderm is less invasive than other fillers and provides patients with dramatic improvement almost immediately following treatment. Results can last up to six months.
Restylane® is a crystal-clear, non-animal, biodegradable gel based on a natural substance that is used for the treatment of wrinkles and lip augmentation. When injected, Restylane® gel gives natural volume under the wrinkle, which is lifted up and smoothed out. Treating wrinkles with Restylane® is fast and safe – and leaves no scars or other traces on the face. Usually, only one treatment is necessary for instantaneous results. Restylane® produces a long-lasting, natural enhancement that is gentle to your skin. The effects of Restylane® can last up to one year.
Perlane® is an injectable dermal filler used to reduce facial lines and wrinkles. It is a non-animal filler made of hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in the body’s connective tissue. Because it is resilient, it can readily adapt and mold to the contours of the face. Perlane® poses no risk of allergic reaction. It is also one of the longest lasting dermal fillers because it contains more hyaluronic molecules.
