Botox & Juvederm
Botox Cosmetic is an effective, non-surgical treatment to remove wrinkles and make patient look years younger. It has been used to treat over 11 million patients worldwide with many years of success. Skin ages overtime due to a variety of factors causing the skin to furrow and fold. Botox Cosmetic can reverse these signs of aging in a quick and easy treatment. It works by blocking nerve impulses in the treated muscle, preventing the wrinkles in the treated tissue.
The treatment starts with a discussion of which wrinkles that the patient wishes to remove and the doctor will explain the effectiveness of treatment in these areas. Cold packs or an anesthetic cream a placed on the areas of treatment allow the skin to numb. Small injections are then placed into the treatment areas with little or no sensitivity. Botox treatments can last up to a year.
Juvederm is gel filler used to instantly smooth wrinkles and folds in the skin around the nose and mouth. Juvederm filler can also be used to add volume to a patient’s lips and chin. It rejuvenates these areas, restoring skin to a more youthful, natural contour in a single visit.
Juvederm is made using a Hylacross technology, which creates a smooth-consistency gel that is infused with Lidocaine to improve the comfort during treatment. Juvederm replaces the hyaluronic acid replacing the lost volume in skin, giving skin a smooth consistency and youthful appearance.
