Botox is an injectable that reduces wrinkles on the face. Botox is best for people who want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, primarily between the eyebrows, on the forehead, and crow’s feet. Botox relaxes the contracted muscle, making skin smooth out and appear less wrinkled. The treatment usually takes about 10 minutes and lasts around 3 months, depending on the area treated. Our medical estheticians recommend Botox for clients who have deeper wrinkles and have the ability to get repeated treatments every 3-6 months.
Juvéderm is a Dermal Filler offered at our med spa. Juvéderm is a smooth gel that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by restoring the skin’s volume. Dermal fillers are recommended for people who want to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles typically in the lower regions of the face. Typically, these injectables are used on crow’s feet, marionette lines, and for adding volume to thinning lips. Results can last up to a year and don’t need repeated treatments as often as Botox.
VOLUMA® comes from one of the most respected and prominent brands in medical beauty, and is currently the only filler treatment based on natural Hyaluronic Acid. It is also the only treatment fully-approved by the FDA for age-related cheek flattening and volume loss.
Patients typically see instant results, with more volume in the cheek area and a noticeable lift. Side effects are minimal, and limited to temporary reactions such as swelling, tenderness, itching, bruising and redness, and may last for two to four weeks. There is no downtime to speak of—you can resume normal activities in as little as 24 hours. With optimal treatment, the results may last for as long as two years.
