Aging can take a toll on the facial appearance. Wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging can make people feel worn out and look older than their age. Many consider undergoing extensive surgery, such as a facelift, which can require a longer recovery with a week or more of downtime. With so much on our plates – work, school, and family – most men and women don’t have the time to take away from their busy lives to undergo a surgical procedure.
So, how can we reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles without any downtime or undergoing surgery? With non-surgical options such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers, patients can address facial aging non-surgically with minimal downtime and pain. They can have their procedure done within the same time as their lunch break and go back to school or work immediately.
Injectables and fillers can help a person take years of wrinkles and fine lines from their face. These can be performed alone or in combination with other injectables for an all over non-surgical makeover. Patients will notice an instant change in their facial appearance.
- BOTOX® Cosmetic: Smooths frown lines between the eyebrows and forehead, and eliminates crow’s feet. BOTOX® Cosmetic works by temporarily weakening the muscles that cause wrinkles and fine lines. Patients can expect an improved appearance of moderate to severe frown lines that will last up to four months.
- JUVÉDERM®: Targets marionette lines (lines from the corner of the mouth to the chin) and nasolabial folds (the creases that extend from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth) by adding volume to the specified areas. Typically, results can last anywhere from nine months to one year.
- JUVÉDERM® Ultra or Ultra Plus: Specifically used for targeting the lips. JUVÉDERM® Ultra can create fuller, more volumized lips by stimulating the growth of new collagen production. When applied to the upper lip, JUVÉDERM® Ultra or Ultra Plus will “plump” the lips as well as diminish the appearance of vertical lip lines and the wrinkles on the lips.
Overall facial fillers and injectables are quick, easy, and effective. They provide patients with an immediate solution to facial aging, and results can last for several months to a year.
