Injectable Fillers - Botox & Juverderm

Injectable fillers are one of the most popular facial rejuvenation techniques. As we age, the underlying tissues that keep our skin looking youthful and firm begin to break down due to the effects of gravity, sun exposure, diet, genetic factors, and years of facial muscle movement.

Over time these factors contribute to the development of lines, wrinkles, and folds in the face.

Where Do Wrinkles Form?

Your skin consists of two layers known as the epidermis and the dermis. The epidermis, or outer layer of the skin, acts as the skin’s primary defense against the environment. The dermis, or innermost layer of the skin, is composed primarily of connective tissue and gives the skin a better support network.

Most facial wrinkles and deeper folds occur within the dermal layer of the skin. When used as standalone treatments or with other procedures, injectable fillers can reduce or get rid of wrinkles and scars, create fuller lips fat loss beneath the skin. With little downtime and almost immediate results, injectable fillers offer a safe, effective method of restoring a smoother, more youthful appearance.

Uses of Botox:

  • Preventative and treatment for existing wrinkles
  • Reduces the muscle activity that causes:
  • Severe frown lines,
  • Facial wrinkles,
  • Laugh lines (nasolabial folds) and
  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Quick and minimally invasive
  • Fast and long-lasting results
  • Over time your muscles become adapted to the effects of these treatments reducing the time and frequency and need for more treatments

Botox is the dependable and popular method of treating frown lines, smile lines, crow's feet and other dynamic wrinkles. Botox injections are the most effective way to improve dynamic wrinkles which include frown, forehead and crow's feet.

These are wrinkles which are formed from the motion of muscles in the local area. Botox is a dilute bacterial toxin that is directly injected into a specific muscle to weaken its motion. Although Botox injections need to be repeated every 3-4 months, after a few treatments many patients notice that the effects last longer between treatments as the muscles are retrained to relax.

How does Botox work?

A few drops of Botox are injected with a tiny needle into the muscle that creates a wrinkle. When Botox is injected into a muscle, it blocks the nerve impulse from reaching that area, and as a result, the muscle weakens.

As the muscle weakens, the skin overlying the muscle relaxes and the wrinkles in the skin gradually soften and often disappear. Botox treatment does not affect normal facial expressions.

Who is a candidate for Botox?

The best candidates for Botox treatment are men and women who are physically healthy, psychologically stable, and realistic in their expectations.

Most are 30 or older, but you may decide to have this procedure at a younger age to prevent premature wrinkles to appear.
