BOTOX® Cosmetic is commonly used to reduce or eliminate the facial wrinkles, particularly in the forehead, between the eyebrows, or around the sides of the eyes. It is injected under the skin into areas surrounding the eyes, forehead and mouth to smooth crow’s feet, frown and worry lines. Over time, wrinkles are allowed to smooth out by BOTOX® reducing the muscular action that normally causes repeated creases in the skin. Made from a purified protein, BOTOX® relaxes wrinkles and gives the face a rejuvenated look. BOTOX® may also be useful for migraine headaches or excessive sweating under the armpits or palms.
JUVÉDERM® is an injectable gel that gently reverses many signs of aging in the face, and is best at filling in deepening grooves in the cheeks and lips and for reducing fine lines and wrinkles. It can fill in sunken cheeks, fill in deep grooves around the cheeks and mouth, or help fill in the hollowness of the lower eyelids. It is made with hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found normally in the skin that works with collagen and elastin to give hydration volume and support to the skin. It is non-animal-based and highly biocompatible, JUVÉDERM® comes different formulas optimized for the depth of the area being treated. Results last from six to twelve months and can be made to last even longer with a simple follow-up treatment a few weeks after the initial injection.
