Are you troubled with worry lines, frown lines, laugh lines or crow's feet? Many people solve these problems with Botox Cosmetic. These changes of age are called dynamic wrinkles because they are caused by contractions of the muscles of the face. Botox relaxes these facial muscles to smooth the skin and iron out these unflattering wrinkles.
The most common areas for Botox® are:
Botox® Cosmetic is the first and only FDA-approved prescription product that temporarily improves the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and moderate to severe crow's feet in adults.
Botox® Cosmetic blocks the release of a substance called acetylcholine. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe wrinkles to form. One 10-minute treatment and within days there's a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, which can last up to 4 months. Results may vary.
Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It's not just about cellular changes, collagen depletion, or damage caused by free radicals. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. And when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow's feet.
Botox® Cosmetic works beneath the skin's surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow's feet to form over time.
Your health care provider will inject Botox® Cosmetic into the muscles that cause frown lines and crow's feet lines, temporarily reducing the activity of those muscles. The result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines.
During the PRP Face Lift procedure, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is injected into the face, usually following where facial fillers have been injected. Facial fillers create volume while the PRP stimulates blood flow and the growth of new cells, vessels, collagen, and fibroblasts in the skin, making it more healthy and glowing. PRP can also be injected by itself, without the need for facial fillers in some individuals.
The PRP Facial is combined with SkinPen™ Microneedling or with Sciton® Resurfacing Treatments. PRP is applied directly after the treatment, promoting quicker healing while getting deep into the skin without injecting it. Platelet Rich Plasma comes from your own blood and contains several different growth factors and cytokines that stimulate healing. Once PRP is injected, it repairs and regenerates the tissue. Some of the growth factors and other cytokines present in PRP include:
Cosmetic Fillers have added new dimensions to the field of cosmetic aesthetics, allowing new forms of facial rejuvenation and wrinkle treatment without surgery. Cosmetic Fillers are used to increase tissue volume (as with lip augmentation), reduce wrinkles, and improve skin’s overall contour. They are used to literally “fill” skin that has lost tissue volume. The new fillers are made of natural ingredients such as calcium and hyaluronic acid.
Juvederm® Voluma™ XC injectable gel is the first and only Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile. Results from
Juvederm® Voluma™ XC are instantaneous and generally last anywhere from one and a half to two years, so there’s really nothing else on the market that compares to its longevity without a need for additional treatments.
Juvederm® Voluma™ XC is injected under the skin using a fine needle to augment, or fill, the soft tissue of the dermis — the dense inner layer of skin beneath the epidermis — to add volume and diminish wrinkles and folds. The injection process takes only about 15 minutes.
