BOTOX Cosmetic – Cornelius, NC

Reduce Fine Lies and Wrinkles

botox-before-and-afterBOTOX® Cosmetic is a non-surgical, physician-administered aesthetic treatment for moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people ages 18 to 65. BOTOX® Cosmetic works by reducing the contractions of the muscles that cause those persistent frown lines that have developed over time.

The lines that appear between your brows (glabellar lines) actually result from muscle movement and the passage of time. You may have heard the expression “wearing your emotions on your sleeve,” but in reality you wear them on your face. If you’re angry or annoyed, for example, you knit your brows together. Underneath your skin, your facial muscles contract, cause a pleating of the overlying skin, and then, as anyone can see, you’re frowning.

After years of crinkling and wrinkling, those glabellar lines start to linger longer and can become more pronounced. For women, whose faces tend to be more animated than men’s, and whose skin is typically more delicate, these lines may appear exaggerated and more permanent.

Fortunately, there is a way to temporarily reduce moderate to severe glabellar lines. Treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic can visibly smooth and soften moderate to severe frown lines between your brows. An improvement can be seen within days and may last up to 4 months, although results may vary. In clinical trials, nearly 90% of men and women surveyed rated the improvement in the appearance of frown lines between their brows as moderate to better 1 month after treatment.

JUVÉDERM® Dermal Filler For Facial Creases

Juv1JUVÉDERM® is the ONLY HA dermal filler to be FDA approved to last up to 1 year.

What Is JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel?

As we age, our skin changes. Over time, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles and folds form. But, with Juvéderm® injectable gel, you don’t have to just sit back and let it happen!

Juvéderm® is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Your healthcare professional eases Juvéderm® injectable gel under the skin to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds—the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).

Juvéderm® provides a smooth, natural look and feel—so everyone will notice (but no one will know)! In fact, studies show superior results of Juvéderm® compared to a collagen-based dermal filler.

  • Almost 90% of all study volunteers who were treated with both Juvéderm® injectable gel and another dermal filler† preferred Juvéderm®!
  • Juvéderm® injectable gel is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is proven to be safe and effective for persons of color.

VOLUMA™ XC for Facial Volume Loss

Volum1BAJUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC injectable gel is the first and only filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area.

VOLUMA™ XC gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile, for up to 2 years, in patients over the age of 21. It’s different than JUVÉDERM® XC and works on a different area of the face. JUVÉDERM® XC smoothes out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, like parentheses. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC, however, adds volume to the cheek area.

Wrinkles are only part of the aging equation

Volum2BAVolume loss in the cheeks is a major reason we lose that youthful profile over the years.

As people age, the cheek area can lose volume, causing the cheeks to flatten out and the skin to droop and sag. Age-related facial volume loss is a growing need in the field of aesthetic medicine. The 2013 American Society for Dermatological Surgery (ASDS) Consumer Survey on Cosmetic Procedures revealed that one of the top reasons why people choose to undergo a cosmetic procedure is because they want to look as young as they feel, with sixty-one percent of respondents most bothered by sagging facial skin.

HOW DOES JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC WORK?

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is injected under the skin with a small needle. It works instantly to add volume and subtly lift the cheek area, temporarily reversing this sign of aging. To reduce pain during the procedure, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC contains a numbing agent called lidocaine. The more youthful profile you can achieve from the procedure lasts up to 2 years with optimal treatment.

Key factors:

  • First and only Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area, resulting in a subtle lift
  • Clinically proven to last up to 2 years with optimal treatment
  • JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is from the makers of the #1 family of fillers
  • After 24 hours, you should be able to resume your normal activities
  • Side effects are moderate and generally last 2 to 4 weeks. Common side effects include temporary reactions at the treatment site such as tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, pain, redness, discoloration, and itching.

“Until now, there were no effective non-surgical options for treating the cheek area of the face. With JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC you have relatively little recovery or downtime and instant results you can see before you leave our office.”

In the clinical study, people perceived themselves to look 5 years younger 6 months after treatment, and  3 years younger 24 months after treatment. The average volume injected during the clinical study was 6.8 mL to achieve optimal correction for the cheek area.
