Men and women alike experience the break down of collagen and elastin fibers in the skin causing facial lines and wrinkles. After many years of laughing, squinting, frowning and smoking the skin around the eyes, mouth and forehead will begin to develop expression lines. These lines can make you look older, tired and stressed. Up until recently these lines have been very hard to treat effectively. Now there is BOTOX Cosmetic, which minimizes the facial motion that is creating these wrinkles.
BOTOX is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium, which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause the frown lines between the brows to form over time.
Are There Any Side Effects?
After your BOTOX® injection, you may experience side effects including:
- Inflammation and/or swelling.
- Localized pain, infection, tenderness, redness, and/or bleeding and bruising.
Additional side effects can occur if you:
- Are allergic to BOTOX® or any of its ingredients.
- Are allergic to cow’s milk protein.
- Had an allergic reaction to any other botulin toxin product, such as myobloc®.
- Are pregnant or breastfeeding.
- Have a skin infection at the planned injection site.
- Have surgical changes to your face.
- Very weak muscles in the treatment area.
- Have droopy eyelids or sagging eyelid folds.
- Have deep facial scars, thick oily skin.
- The injection site is inflamed.
- Your wrinkles can not be smoothed by spreading them apart.
To ensure your safety, you should receive your Botox® injections from a trained medical professional.
Juvederm® is the only hylauronic acid (HA) filler FDA approved to last up to one year. It is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Your healthcare professional eases Juvederm® injectable gel under the skin to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your smile lines or parentheses (nasolabial folds ”the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).
What is Juvederm Treatment
The Juvederm formula is safe gel composed mainly of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring chemical found in the skin and muscle tissue. As wear and tear breaks down the hyaluronic acid we were born with the skin becomes less elastic and supple and lines begin to form. Juvederm replenishes our skin’s hyaluronic acid and fills in lines and sagging skin, and can even be used to plump up thin lips. Juvederm is unlike any other product on the market as it relies on a ‘cross-linking’ technology, which increases the solution’s potency and makes it more naturally soluble by our bodies. This allows the patient’s body to more quickly consume the solution, making results visible as soon as one day after the procedure.
How does it work?
Juvederm is known for its ease and comfort of administration. The Juvederm formula is injected into an individual’s face using a thin syringe. The formula already contains lidocaine eliminating the need for a local anesthetic and making the procedure painless. Juvederm is most effective on lines that appear around the mouth and eyes, but can improve wrinkles on any part of the face. Juvederm can have a noticeable effect in as few a one treatment and the results create smooth, youthful looking skin for many months after the treatment. The hyaluronic acid in the Juvederm formula is highly absorbent, and is able to retain up to 1,000 times its weight in water. This allows the product to combine with existing collagen in the skin and allow water and other essential nutrients to fill out both the acid and the collagen it is attached to.
Kybella™ is the first and only FDA-approved treatment for your “double chin” (submental fullness). Double chins are a common condition that can occur due to aging, weight fluctuations, and possibly even genetics. For some individuals, no matter how much they diet or exercise, the double chin does not go away. Double chins often make people look “heavier” and older than their actual age.
Kybella™ is a NON-surgical treatment to improve the contour of a double chin. It is a 15-20 minute, in-office injection treatment that is customized to help you get to your aesthetic goals. Kybella™ is ideal for moderate to severe submental fullness. It is made up of deoxycholic acid (a naturally-occurring chemical in your body) that destroys the fat cells of your double chin. Kybella™ is a non-human, non-animal formulation of deoxycholic acid.
Kybella™ can be a single treatment, but in most individuals requires a series of two to four treatments. Some patients may require up to six treatments to reach their ideal aesthetic. Each treatment is administered one month or more apart.
