Botox & Juvederm Cosmetic Rejuvenation
As part of the aging process a number of wrinkles and furrows can develop between the brows and crow’s feet often appear around the eyes. These can result in a tired and weary appearance. Fortunately, there is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure available today that can effectively address these unwanted signs of aging.
Botox is a prescription medicine that can be injected into the affected areas to dramatically improve the look of these fine lines and furrows. Made from a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, Botox gives the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. It works by blocking nerve impulses and temporarily paralyzing the muscles that are causing these wrinkles and furrows.
Just a single short treatment with a few minor injections of Botox can produce a noticeable improvement that will last several months. Studies also suggest that Botox is effective in relieving migraine headaches, excessive sweating and muscle spasms in the neck and eyes.
Juvederm uses hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in our bodies. When injected into the problem areas of the face, it adds volume to the area, smoothing out wrinkles, lines and folds. Hyaluronic acid has also been found to maintain or even accelerate the forming of new collagen. Our clients have been thrilled with the results, which are immediately visible and last up to one year.
