If you are interested in rejuvenating your appearance to enjoy a more youthful look, we may recommend facial fillers. Facial fillers are cosmetic injectables designed to smooth out lines and wrinkles in your face. The two most common types of facial fillers are BOTOX® and JUVÉDERM®.
BOTOX (onabotulinumtoxinA) is a medication that is injected into the muscles of the brow, where it works to smooth frown crow’s feet and lines between the brows, giving you a younger, calmer and more alert appearance. BOTOX works by temporarily freezing the muscles that cause the lines on your face, simultaneously smoothing out the lines and preventing them from becoming deeper in the future. BOTOX is a type of cosmetic injectable, which means that your treatment will be comfortable and will only take a few minutes to complete. You will be able to return to your daily activities as soon as you leave our office and can expect to see results within 24 to 48 hours after treatment. The results from your BOTOX treatment can last for up to four months.
JUVÉDERM is a type of dermal filler. Dermal fillers are cosmetic injectables which work to smooth wrinkles, lines and folds around the nose and mouth. JUVÉDERM contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring, hydrating substance. JUVÉDERM helps to restore the structure and contours of your skin, restoring the natural volume and fullness of the face, as well as diminishing facial lines, softening wrinkles and creases, plumping thin lips, and improving the appearance of recessed scars. Your dermal filler treatment can be completed in just a few minutes, and the results can last for up to a year following treatment.
