One of the most popular non-invasive procedures, Botox helps eliminate or reduce lines and wrinkles that have developed on the face over the years. A Botox injection consists of a synthetically derived protein produced from the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. When small amounts of Botox are injected into the face, it relaxes the muscles underneath. Botox is used to smooth lines and creases across the forehead, around the eyes and around the mouth. It is also used to treat excessive sweating in other parts of the body.
Botox usually lasts from three to four months before a touch-up is needed. No anesthesia is used and there is minimal discomfort. Patients are advised to remain vertical for three to four hours after the treatment and usually see results within two to three days.
Juvederm is a dermal filler that contains hyaluronic acid to effectively smooth wrinkles, lines and creases on the face. Juvederm adds volume to areas that have lost collagen and elasticity due to aging, genetics and environmental factors. The filler can be used to give fullness to lips, eliminate bags under the eyes, and restore volume to hollow areas of the face.
Juvederm injections can be performed in just a few minutes in the doctor’s office. The results last from four to six months. Injectables are usually delivered with a topical anesthetic, and most patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately afterward.
Restylane is another safe filler made of hyaluronic acid used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines by adding volume to the face. Restylane injections are often used on the lips and underneath the eyes. The treatment replenishes lost volume, offering patients a younger, fresher look.
The treatment takes less than 30 minutes and is often performed with a mild topical anesthesia. Patients can enjoy normal activities immediately after the procedure, but should avoid sun exposure. The results tend to last at least six months before a touch-up session is needed. Patients will see the full effects of Restylane injections within one week of treatment.
