Injectables are a long-lasting, non-permanent treatment alternative to traditional permanent facelift surgery. Use of injectables to aesthetically and safely enhance your appearance for several months at a time is often preferable to the more permanent solution of a face lift that cannot be reversed or modified if you don’t like the results. Injectable cosmetic treatment does not require general anesthesia, downtime, or result in scars (even “hidden ones”). As with any injection, there is a risk of minor temporary bruising of the skin at the injection sites.
Botox® relaxes. In areas around the eyes, brow, and forehead, wrinkles are primarily the result of repeated muscle movement, such as squinting, raising the eyebrows, or making other facial expressions (e.g., “frown lines” can form between the brows). Botox® relaxes the muscles that create the wrinkles, reducing their appearance and preventing the formation of new or deeper wrinkles. Juvederm® fills. In areas around the mouth, nose, and lower cheeks, wrinkles and lines are generally deeper and need to be volumized and smoothed without weakening the underlying musculature. Juvederm® fills in the deep lines, folds, and wrinkles, immediately reducing their appearance by lifting and plumping them. Combine the two and see the amazing benefits of our injectable mini-facelift, with no downtime, and no painful recovery. Rejuvenate your appearance with our wrinkle reduction and lip enhancement injectable treatment.
Botox® is the common name for a toxin found in nature known scientifically as botulinum toxin. It has a natural paralytic effect that relaxes and immobilizes muscles. When administered by a professional in proper doses, Botox® is a safe, effective, therapeutic treatment option for a host of cosmetic and medical problems. It is injected, through a tiny needle, directly into the muscles beneath the wrinkles around your eyes, in your brow, and across your forehead, weakening them, reducing the appearance of existing lines, and preventing the formation of new ones.
Botox® has been used to cosmetically enhance facial appearance in men and women for over twenty years, with amazing results. Treatments normally take about 15 minutes and discomfort is minimal, at worst, being compared to a bug bit. No sedation or anesthesia is needed and you will be able to get right back to your life afterwards. Botox® treatments generally last about three months and may be repeated as needed.
You should avoid using Botox® if you are pregnant or nursing. Other medical conditions may also make you unable to be treated with Botox®. We will thoroughly discuss any contraindications with you at the time of your initial consultation.
Juvederm® is an injectable, hypo-allergenic, hyaluronic acid gel that temporarily and safely adds volume to the skin and combats volume loss. The filler is injected, in a very small amount using a tiny needle, directly into the fine and deep wrinkles, immediately lifting and plumping them and smoothing your overall appearance.
Treatments normally take about 15 minutes and the results can be seen immediately. A topical numbing agent may be applied to minimize discomfort. No sedation is needed and you will be able to get right back to your life afterwards. As with any injection, it is recommended that you avoid strenuous activities immediately after treatment to prevent or minimize any minor bruising that may form around the injection sites. Juvederm® filler treatments can last anywhere between three months and a year and may be repeated as needed.
You should avoid using Juvederm® fillers if you are pregnant or nursing. Other medical conditions may also make you unable to be treated with Juvederm®. We will thoroughly discuss any contraindications with you at the time of your initial consultation.
