BOTOX is a cosmetic neurotoxin injection that blocks signals to the nerves that cause your facial muscles to contract. This effect relaxes and smooths wrinkles and fine lines that are caused by repetitive muscle movements. BOTOX injections are most frequently used between the eyes (frown lines), around the crow’s feet, and to minimize the wrinkles in the forehead area. BOTOX can act to raise the eye brows if placed properly and is also dependent on the patient’s forehead musculature. BOTOX can also relax tight neck bands so they are less pronounced. It can also be used to help balance facial asymmetry. You should begin to notice an improvement in your wrinkles within 24-48 hours but may take up to one week to show the expected change. Results can last up to four months for moderate to severe wrinkles. BOTOX is safe, FDA-approved, and results in visibly smoother, younger looking skin, and renewed confidence in your appearance.
Juvederm is an injectable filler which can improve the appearance of deep facial wrinkles, folds and lines, enhance the lips, and contour facial features like the chin and cheeks. Juvederm is made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in all species which is highly attracted to water and has the ability to bind to it. The results are very natural and long-lasting, with the effect remaining for six to eight months or longer. The most popular areas to use the filler is in the folds around the mouth.
Juvederm Voluma XC is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel that instantly boosts the volume of your cheeks and skin to correct age-related volume deficiencies. This formula uses a thicker hyaluronic acid formula than traditional Juvederm for more dramatic results.
Volbella is the latest FDA-approved injectable added to the Juvéderm family of dermal fillers. This non-surgical lip augmentation treatment is designed to plump the lips and minimize the appearance of fine lines around the mouth, also known as perioral rhytids or perioral lines.
Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) Peel
A TCA peel is a minimally invasive skin treatment used to treat skin discolorations, scarring, and wrinkles. Immediately after the procedure, you can expect some skin irritation, redness and swelling. Within a few days, your skin will tighten and darken – and then begin to crack and peel for the next four to seven days–at which point the tighter, smoother and more youthful-looking layer of skin will emerge. Physician administered TCA contains 35% trichloroacetic acid, a clinical grade peel only a medical doctor can perform. You must plan on staying out of the sun for at least three months after such treatments to avoid hyper-pigmentation. Scarring can occur but is very rare.
