BOTOX® Cosmetic is a non-surgical, aesthetic treatment for moderate to severe frown lines. BOTOX® Cosmetic works by reducing the contractions of the muscles that cause those persistent frown lines that have developed over time.
One 10-minute treatment—a few tiny injections—and within days there’s a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, which can last up to 4 months. In clinical trials, nearly 90% of men and women surveyed rated the improvement in the appearance of frown lines between their brows as moderate to better 1 month after treatment.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a chemical made from Botulism toxin that temporarily paralyzes the muscles of expression. This blocks the transmission of a nerve impulse into the muscle. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows. Individual results may vary.
Juvederm Dermal Fillers
Juvéderm is the “next generation” of dermal fillers. It is created by Allergan – the same manufacturer of Botox®. Juvéderm provides a smooth, long-lasting correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.
Juvéderm is manufactured using HYLACROSS™ technology, creating a smooth-consistency gel. It is also infused with lidocaine to improve comfort during treatment. Juvéderm is administered in a smooth-slow injection, allowing your provider a high level of control for individualized, tailored facial contouring to achieve a smooth and natural look. The procedure only takes a few minutes, and the results are practically instantaneous. With Juvéderm, you only need one treatment for results that will last for up to a year!
Numbing cream may be applied before the treatment to optimize your comfort during treatment, and Juvéderm now contains lidocaine, a common local anesthetic, that assists to alleviate any discomfort.
Juvéderm is most commonly used to correct smile lines, nasolabial folds (the skin folds that run from the nostril of your nose to the corners of your mouth), and marionette lines (lines formed near the chin). It can also help define the lip border and give the appearance of a fuller lip.
Brow Lift is a cosmetic procedure utilized when a patient’s eyebrow has begun to droop. A brow lift will raise the position of the brow.
