Botox® and Juvéderm® are two noninvasive injectables that are used to treat/eliminate wrinkles. Both are relatively quick treatments, that take just minutes to complete.
Botox injections are designed to temporarily relax facial muscles,
and can be used to temporarily smooth out forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines between the eyebrows. Botox reduces the muscle activity that causes facial wrinkles to form in these areas.
The procedure begins with either ice or a topical cream to numb the areas for treatment. For areas in between the eyebrows, a typical procedure involves five injections into the muscles of the forehead. For crow’s feet, typically three injections are used near the muscle that frames the side of each eye. The result of each is a more relaxed, smooth appearance of the skin.
Treatments require minimal recovery/downtime. In most cases, patients resume normal daily activities following the appointment. Noticeable results begin within 24-48 hours and can last up to four months.
Juvéderm is made of hyaluronic acid, which plumps up the skin, which help make lips achieve a fuller, more youthful appearance. Results are proven to last up to a year. We offer different Juvéderm lip fillers to treat different types of wrinkles, including Juvéderm Ultra XC, which is an injectable gel that works to add fullness to lips, and Juvéderm Volbella XC, which adds subtle volume and softens the appearance of vertical lip lines.
