The Benefits Of Injectables & Fillers
We all want to age gracefully and retain our youthfulness, and thanks to advances in the cosmetic correction field, we can. With trusted and non-invasive injectables and fillers on the market like Botox and Juvederm, you can have smooth, natural, youthful-looking skin again in no time.
What’s The Difference Between Injectables & Fillers?
As we age, we experience facial changes that include collagen and elastin breakdown, loss of bone density, loss of fat and deep wrinkles and lines. Typically, fillers like Juvederm are used to add volume to the areas that are lacking fullness. Fillers can also be used to “fill in” deep lines and wrinkles, like smile lines or “parentheses”, or to add volume to lips.
Unlike fillers, which can add volume and smooth out wrinkles and lines, injectables like Botox actually work to relax the muscles causing facial lines and wrinkles. Botox will not take away your ability to make facial expressions — it will simply reduce the amount of movement in those areas in which facial muscles are causing wrinkles and lines.
There Are Many Products Out There – Why Choose Juvederm Or Botox?
Although there are many non-invasive cosmetic options to choose from, Juvederm and Botox are two of the most trusted products on the market. Unlike Restylane or other Hyaluronic Acid fillers, Juvederm XC is the “first and only FDA-approved HA (Hyaluronic Acid) filler that lasts up to 1 year with 1 treatment.”
Botox, which has been used in over 11 million procedures in the last 10 years was the “first FDA-approved botulinum toxin to temporarily improve moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people aged 18 to 65.”
Both Juvederm and Botox have the customer satisfaction rate and FDA-approved rating you’d want and expect in a cosmetic product. When properly administered by an experienced professional, you can expect natural-looking and noticeable results.
What Areas Are Typically Treated?
Juvederm and other fillers are typically used in deep lines and wrinkles, particularly the “parentheses” or deep smile lines surrounding the mouth. Juvederm can also be used to add fullness or thickness to the lips. Botox, on the other hand, is typically injected into muscles in the forehead or between the brows.
How Will I Know How Many Units Or Syringes I Need?
The dosage needed varies from person to person, and will be determined by the professional administering the Botox or Juvederm. Once you’ve met with one of our experienced professionals, you will have a better idea of whether or not you are a candidate for treatment, and how many units or syringes you will most likely need.
What Is Recovery Time Like?
The great thing about these non-invasive procedures is that there really isn’t a recovery time. Some patients experience slight bruising or bleeding, but many patients find that they can come in for treatment on their lunch hour without worrying about anyone at the office knowing about their visit.
