Juvéderm is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Your health care professional eases Juvéderm® injectable gel under the skin to instantly restore your skin's volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your "smile lines" or "parentheses" (nasolabial folds—the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).
Juvéderm® provides a smooth, natural look and feel—so everyone will notice (but no one will know)!
BOTOX Cosmetic is a simple, non-surgical, physician administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows. It is the only treatment of its type approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Botox is a prescription medicine that can be injected into the affected areas to dramatically improve the look of fine lines and furrows. Made from a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, Botox gives the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. It works by blocking nerve impulses and temporarily paralyzing the muscles that are causing these wrinkles and furrows.
How is Treatment with Botox Provided?
With strategically placed injections of Botox, our doctor can produce a noticeable reduction in the appearance of lines on the bridge of the nose, horizontal lines on the forehead, crow’s feet around the eyes, and bands on the neck. Moreover, since Botox is delivered to targeted areas through a series of small injections with micro-fine needles, the discomfort of this in-office procedure is minimal and involves zero downtime.
Patients typically see noticeable results in 4-10 days following treatment with improvements lasting up to four to six months. And, by coming in for periodic treatment, patients can maintain the aesthetically pleasing effects of Botox over time.
What Else Can be Treated with Botox?
In addition to cosmetic applications, Botox can also be used for medical purposes. Botox provides a safe and effective method of care for relieving migraine headaches, excessive sweating and muscle spasms in the neck and eyes.
