BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple, non-surgical, treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people from 18 to 65. BOTOX® Cosmetic works by reducing the contractions of the muscles that cause those persistent frown lines that have developed over time. BOTOX® is FDA approved, but rare cases of serious complications have been reported. It is important that you are informed of the procedure and the risks involved prior to making your appointment. Please read our Before you BOTOX® page for a list of mild and serious side effects that may occur during and after your procedure.
BOTOX® Cosmetic FAQs
What Is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium, which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those frown lines between the brows to form over time.
How long does it take?
One 10-minute treatment—a few tiny injections—and within days there’s a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, which can last up to 4 months.
How many people do BOTOX®?
In 2008, almost 10 million procedures were performed with FDA-approved BOTOX® Cosmetic.
Does it hurt?
Almost all patients report that there is minimal discomfort. Almost no patients report that the pain is severe. Most patients report that the specially designed syringes make it relatively painless.
This is the next generation dermal filler that offers smooth, natural looking results that can last up to six months. Perfect for the correction of moderate facial wrinkles and folds, Juvedern can also be applied to the borders around the lips for more fullness. These subtle results are immediate with no downtime.
What Is It?
JUVÉDERM® XC is the smooth gel filler that your doctor uses to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, you’ll get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year.†
How Does It Work?
Young, healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). But as you age, sunlight and other factors can reduce the amount of HA in your skin. The lack of HA causes your skin to lose structure and volume, creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds – like those parentheses lines around your nose and mouth.
Using a dermal filler like JUVÉDERM® XC is a safe and effective way to replace the HA your skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds.
Are There Any Side Effects?
JUVÉDERM® XC injectable gel is generally well tolerated. Most side effects are mild to moderate in nature and their duration is short lasting (7 days or less). The most common side effects include, but are not limited to, temporary injection site reactions such as redness, pain/tenderness, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, bruising, itching, and discoloration. As with all skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are generally biocompatible, which means allergy skin testing is not required prior to treatment.
Upon injection, RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler immediately provides the volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of aging because of the calcium-based microspheres and gel that comprise the product. But what’s unique about RADIESSE Volumizing Filler is that it acts as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. This process continues for several months, which extends the initial effect of RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler. Best of all, the natural results are clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients, which is why more and more cosmetic surgeons, dermatologists, and other medical professionals are choosing RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler to achieve long-lasting facial rejuvenation.
What Is It Made Of?
RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler is made of tiny calcium-based microspheres which are suspended in a natural, water-based gel. These calcium based microspheres are similar to minerals that are found naturally in your body so allergy testing is not required. Over time, your body absorbs these tiny microspheres and the gel and leaves behind only your own natural collagen
How Does It Work?
Once injected, RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler does exactly as it says: it fills or replenishes volume lost over time for a more refreshed looking you. Then it goes to work by stimulating your body to produce its own natural collagen.Over time, your body absorbs the product and leaves behind only your own natural collagen for long-lasting results.
How Soon Can I Expect Results?
Instantly! Immediately upon injection, RADIESSE Volumizing Filler restores volume to smooth out the signs of aging.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Just like any injection, you may experience mild irritation, swelling, itching, redness, bruising or tenderness at the injection site. These typically resolve on their own.
