BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Your specialist will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows.
Age-related volume loss occurs slowly over time, leaving the midface to appear sunken or drooping. Juvéderm is an FDA-approved filler made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar found in the body in the skin and joints. When this gel is injected, it acts like an inflated cushion to support facial structures and tissues that may have lost volume or elasticity due to normal aging. It also brings water to the surface of skin to keep it looking fresh and supple. Juvederm® is superior in its class of fillers as it can bind up to 1000x its own volume in water. The resulting effect is a plumping of the skin that lifts the sagging skin to restore a more youthful appearance.
As you age the collagen in your skin breaks down leaving the outer layer of skin to sag and crepe. Your cheeks may flatten, and the skin may begin to sag. In combination, flattened cheeks and sagging, creping skin reflect the tell tale signs of the natural aging process.When injected into the cheeks, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC replenishes the hyaluronic acid that has been diminished in the skin over time, helping to plump up your cheeks to help you achieve a younger look.
