Prevent Fine Line and Wrinkles with Botox

Botox works best as a preventive measure to keep lines and wrinkles from forming. A common misconception is thinking that you are too young for Botox because you don’t have wrinkles yet. The earlier you start, the less treatment you’ll need as you get older.

Botox targets one of the underlying causes of lines and wrinkles, the repeated facial muscle contractions that occur over the years. Botox temporarily reduces this muscle activity so you’ll notice a smoothing of these lines.

For temporary improvement of crow’s feet, Botox is injected into the muscles surrounding the sides of your eyes- called the orbicularis oculi muscles. For frown lines, Botox is injected into two muscles- the corrugator and procerus muscles.

Juvederm fillers

Over time, age and sun can result in fine line, wrinkles, hollows, and sagging skin. Fortunately, we have safe and minimally invasive hyaluronic acid fillers to give skin a more youthful appearance. * Hyaluronic acid is a natural molecule found in the body. When it is injected into the skin, hyaluronic acid binds with water and expands to fill out and plump the skin deficit from the inside.

Voluma is a hyaluronic acid gel that’s injected into the skin to instantly restore lost volume to the cheeks. As you age, you start to lose hyaluronic acid which causes the skin to lose structure and volume. Loss of volume in the cheeks leads to sagging skin and a hollow appearance. By restoring lost volume, Voluma instantly creates a more youthful appearance. *

Frequently Asked Questions: Juvederm Fillers

How many syringes will I neeed?

This depends on what area we’re treating, age of the patient and the amount of volume loss present. Some general rules of thumb- Under eyes: 1-2 syringes, Cheeks: 2-3 syringes, Nasolabial folds: 2 syringes, Lips-1-2 syringes.

What's the typical product and amount you put in lips

For most patients seeking a noticeable but natural looking lip, I like to use Juvederm Ultra. The hyaluronic acid in Juvederm Ultra gives a beautiful, soft, pouty lip while still looking as if you have always had lips like that. Juvederm Volbella is the other product I like for lips and lip lines when less volume is needed. We see great results with combining both Juvederm Ultra and Volbella to give the ultimate lip augmentation. If you’re looking for increased lip volume it’s best to stagger treatments with 1 syringe no sooner than every month until desired volume is achieved.

Is there anything I should do before my appointment?

You can start taking Arnica Montana a couple of days before your appointment and continue to take it the day after. Arnica helps to prevent bruising and swelling associated with injections. You should also avoid certain things like ibuprofen, aspirin, fish oil, ginkgo biloba, and alcohol as these substances thin the blood and make bruising and swelling more likely.

How long does it last?

This depends on a few factors. There are currently 4 Juvederm products approved for use in the USA. Each product has a different indication, but we interchange some products depending on the area treated and your aesthetic goals. All Juvederm products are made from hyaluronic acid (HA) that are simply cross-linked in different ways. Volbella and Voluma utilize Vycross technology, which binds the HA more closely together allowing longer lasting results (1 year with Volbella and 2 years with Voluma). Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus utilize Hylacross technology, which combines HA in a way that allows water molecules to bind to it, creating slightly more volume once the product is settled but lasts 6-9 months.*

Frequently Asked Questions: Botox

How long does it last?

With adequate dosing your treatment will typically last 3-4 months. Areas where you may want increased facial expressions or a VERY natural look, treatment may only last 1-3 months.

Will I look overdone or frozen?

No. Botox injection is a technique sensitive treatment. A skilled injector should not make you lose the ability to show expression. It is important to see a licensed, trained, medical expert and that you discuss your desired results with this professional.

Does it hurt?

Most patients report the injection feeling like a little pinch. You may choose to use ice or a topical numbing cream to numb the area before treatment.

Are there any side effects?

3% of patients during clinical studies experience eyelid drooping and 1% experienced eyelid swelling. Other possible, yet uncommon, side effects include dry mouth, tiredness, headache, neck pain, vision problems and allergic reactions.

This is a very safe and common procedure.
