Be a part of the next facial frontier: Facial volumizing and rejuvenation with dermal fillers provides a more youthful looking face. Young, healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid. But as you age, time, sunlight, and other factors can reduce the amount of hyaluronic acid in your skin, causing your skin to lose structure and volume. Dermal fillers like JUVÉDERM® XC and JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC help replace the hyaluronic acid your skin has lost, adding volume to smooth away facial wrinkles and folds and provide a smooth, natural-looking result.
- JUVÉDERM® XC: The smooth gel filler made of hyaluronic acid in JUVÉDERM® XC injections are an excellent treatment option for the restoration and correction of deep folds, facial lines, lip enhancement and reshaping of facial contours. JUVÉDERM® XC is manufactured using HYLACROSS™technology, which not only creates a smooth-consistency gel, but it is also infused with lidocaine to improve comfort during treatment. JUVÉDERM® XC is FDA-approved to last up to one year, and with just one treatment, you’ll get smooth and natural-looking results with the improved comfort you deserve.
- JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC: While JUVÉDERM® XC smoothes out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC adds volume to the cheek area. It is the first and only dermal filler that is FDA-approved to instantly increase volume to the cheek area. It gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile, for up to 2 years, in patients over the age of 21. Side effects for dermal fillers are moderate and generally last 2 to 4 weeks. Common side effects include temporary reactions at the treatment site such as tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, pain, redness, discoloration, and itching. After 24 hours, you should be able to resume your normal activities.
Botox is more than a wrinkle cure; it allows an individual to age gracefully while looking their best. You can be “Botox Beautiful” and turn back the hands of time with the #1 requested non-surgical procedure in the U.S.
Botox® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxin A) is a safe, FDA-approved treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe facial lines between the brows, forehead and around the eyes. Quick and easy, Botox facial injections take about 10 minutes to do with noticeable results in just a few days that will last 3-4 months.
An interesting, but not well-known fact is that Ophthalmologists are the most experienced administrators of Botox®. For over 20 years, ophthalmologists have been using Botox® to treat a variety of eye conditions, including eyelid spasms and eye muscle disorders. When Botox® is injected into the eye muscles, it reduces their movement and can be very effective in aligning the eyes. When injected for eyelid spasms, it can help limit the overactive blinking.
