When you smile or frown, your facial muscles contract. Over time, these contractions contribute to formation of permanent wrinkles and furrows, especially around the eyes and mouth, on the forehead and between the eyebrows. These lines can make you look older, sad, tired or angry. BOTOX® or DYSPORT® injections can help smooth away lines and wrinkles and thus slow down the deepening of these lines that occurs with age.
These are the most popular cosmetic procedures in the country. Proven safe and effective and approved by the FDA, the treatment consists of a series of tiny injections that are well tolerated. The effect is usually noted after about 4 days and typically lasts for about 4 months.
Certain areas of the face are more appropriately treated with dermal fillers like Restylane® and JUVÉDERM®. As we age, our skin and connective tissue under the skin change and contribute to the formation of creases and furrows. Dermal fillers like Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® can restore the lost volume. Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® are FDA-approved and are made of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance found in the body, so no pre-testing for allergies is required. Most commonly treated areas are the nasolabial folds (between the nose and corner of the mouth) as well as deep lines between the eyebrows. The results are visible right away and last 6-9 months.
