Botox is the number one cosmetically sought treatment with over 3 million treatments performed every year. It is used to improve the appearance of wrinkles, by temporarily inhibiting muscle movement. Once the underlying muscles are relaxed, the wrinkles gradually improve, as the skin takes this opportunity to heal itself. It's now unnecessary to put up with the lines and wrinkles that make you look tired or angry. Typically patients begin to see results in a few days, with effects lasting 3-4 months on average.
Unlike Botox, Juvederm fillers actually “fill” the lines and creases, and re-volumize the depressions that develop with age. Some of us want an improvement in our natural features, for example enhancing the fullness of their lips. Results are immediate and can last from several months to well over a year.
It’s essential that patients are treated by an experienced professional who not only understands the products, but also understands the goal of the individual patient.
If you are considering Botox or Juvederm treatment, a comprehensive consultation with our Aesthetic Nurse Specialist is the first step.
