Stay Young With Botox®

Do you hate the fact that your wrinkles tell everyone exactly how old you are? Botox® can help you look younger and keep everyone guessing about your age.

Botox®, introduced in 2002, is the first botulinum toxin approved by FDA, and is the most common cosmetic procedure in the United States, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

How does Botox® work?

The appearance of wrinkles is enhanced by facial muscle contractions. Botox® helps by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses, preventing contractions and making wrinkles relax and soften.

Its cosmetic applications allow it to be used to improve the appearance of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows and many people see it as a less invasive procedure than facelifts.

How is Botox® used?

The cosmetic application of Botox® involves injecting a small dose of botulinum toxin with a fine needle into specific muscles to prevent development of wrinkles. The full effect comes into play within 3 to 7 days.

The injection causes only minor discomfort and the wrinkle-preventing effect lasts from 4 months up to 6 months, after which the lines and wrinkles start to reappear, and you may want to consider additional treatments.

What you need to consider when taking Botox®

It is advisable to avoid alcohol one week before and aspirin and -inflammatory medications two weeks before treatment to reduce the amount of bruising. Headaches are a rare side effect as is eyelid drooping.

Can anyone take Botox® treatments?

Botox® is not advised in pregnancy, lactation or in case of a neurological disease, and cosmetic applications are generally not covered by insurance.

What are the benefits of Botox® treatments?

Botox® can help relax the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and also reduce it over time as the muscles are trained to relax.

Men, Botox is certainly not for women only. ’Bro-tox’ as it’s nicknamed, is becoming more popular to get rid of those frown lines or wrinkles between brows.

Whether you want to look more youthful at your job, for your mate, or just for yourself, your Botox® treatments gives you the benefit of a facelift without involving major or expensive surgery.

Injectable Fillers:

Get Rid Of Smile Lines with JUVEDERM®

Do you want to get rid of those deep and clearly visible “smile lines” that make you look older than you are? Now you can do that with the help of an injectable facial filler called JUVEDERM® that is largely composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the skin, muscles, and tendons of mammals.

Approved in June 2006 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, this safe and minimally invasive cosmetic procedure is used to soften deep folds and remove nasolabial folds or “smile lines”, and even for lip augmentation or for filling in scars and hollow places on the face.

How does JUVEDERM® work?

When your skin is young, it contains a lot of hyaluronic acid (HA), which naturally hydrates and fills out the skin. With aging or exposure to sunlight the amount of HA in your skin can reduce, creating deep folds and wrinkles like “smile lines” around the nose and mouth.

As a dermal filler that is injected below the skin, JUVEDERM® can replace the HA in your skin safely and effectively, giving you back your soft and smooth looks.

How long do treatments last?

As hyaluronic acid facial filler is usually absorbed back into the body, the results last from six to nine months, often up to a year, and treatments must be repeated to maintain your youthful appearance.

Are there any side effects?

The JUVEDERM® gel is infused with lidocaine to decrease discomfort during the treatment process. Side effects can include redness, firmness, pain and swelling and can last up to a week or less.

Treatment is not recommended in those who have severe allergies or a history of anaphylaxis. More serious side effects can occur like immune system reactions that cause granulomas, or facial lumps and bumps. It is also not recommended for injection under the eyes which can result in “bags” or edema caused by water retention.

What are the benefits of JUVEDERM®?

Because hyaluronic acid binds with collagen and elastin to bring more nutrients into your skin, older skin begins to look younger.

Hyaluronic acid also stretches cells in skin and boosts the creation of new collagen, which helps diminish the emergence of facial creases and wrinkles. Another welcome finding is that seems to prevent the breakdown of existing collagen.

In many ways, JUVEDERM® helps smooth away wrinkles and restore the natural contours of your face, giving you a new, refreshed look almost instantly.
