Botox / Fillers
Botox and Juvederm Treatments in Houston, TX
Botox is a fast and safe method used (usually with immediate results) for dramatically improving the appearance of worry lines (forehead), glabellar lines (frown lines), nasolabial folds, perioral lines, smile lines and oral commissures. It is also very effectively used in creating a more pronounced mouth and fuller lips. Botox can be used to erase wrinkles and relax muscles in specific facial areas such as vertical forehead frown creases and crow’s-feet around the eyes. It is injected directly into the frown muscle or the wrinkle area. Within 24 to 72 hours the muscles will relax and the wrinkles and frown will disappear. The frustrated, “tired and angry look” on the face will disappear and the patient’s skin will look younger with a smoother.
DERMA FILLERS/JUVEDERM TREATMENTS
Dermal fillers are now most commonly used to fill in facial lines, wrinkles, and creases, to give a lifting effect to the outer eyebrows, to fill in lower eyelid depressions, or to redefine and/or enhance the lips.
This procedures as Lip augmentation and Face Lift don’t take more than 30 minutes.
Dermal filler is a gel substance that is injected into the skin, using very fine needles, to restore volume, lift and smooth lines and wrinkles.
Fillers can be used for an instant effect in smoothing some of the deeper lines and folds, as well as fine lines in the lip area, and lip augmentation. Following a topical or local anesthetic, the filler gently adds volume to the skin so lines fade immediately. The filler used is natural, derived from materials already found in the body. The effects of dermal filler usually last approx. 3 – 6 months depending on a number of personal factors.
Whether used alone to correct small facial areas, or in conjunction with other surgical or non-surgical procedures, it is probably the most popular treatment being used today in the skin care field today.
