Botox / Juvaderm
The cosmetic form of Botulinum Toxin, often referred to by its product name, Botox©, is a popular non-surgical injection that temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases, crow’s feet near the eyes and thick bands in the neck. The toxin blocks the nerve impulses, temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. Studies have also suggested that Botox© is effective in relieving migraine headaches, excessive sweating and muscle spasms in the neck and eyes.
As people age their skin changes. Over time, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles and folds form. But, with Juvederm© injectable gel, patients don’t have to just sit back and let that happen. Recently approved by the FDA, Juvederm© injectable gel is a next-generation dermal filler. The smooth consistency gel helps to instantly restore the skin’s volume and smoothes away facial wrinkles and folds, especially around the nose and mouth.
