How it works:

A combination of factors can cause facial lines. It’s not just about the cellular changes that may occur, or reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment.

Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows to cause the skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. BOTOX® works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines in adults – to help them look visibly smoother.

What to expect:

Some patients receiving BOTOX® report the injections feel like a pinch. You may begin to notice a visible smoothing of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to 4-6 months for moderate to severe frown lines in adults. BOTOX® is not a permanent treatment. If you discontinue treatment the moderate to severe frown lines, crow's feet and forehead lines will gradually return.

Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler

Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler. It is used to help people address the facial signs of aging. Juvederm fillers have a smooth, gel-like consistency. Juvederm works by adding volume to the facial tissue through its active ingredient, hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the human body. It stimulates the production of the connective tissue that plumps the skin (collagen). As you get older, the production of hyaluronic acid and collagen decreases. This increases the appearance of sagging and wrinkling of the facial skin.

Recovery time is minimal

Recovery time is minimal, But people are advised to avoid strenuous activity, sun exposure, wearing makeup, and consuming alcohol for at least 24 hours post-treatment.

Most notice the effects of Juvederm right away, or after the swelling reduces. Results typically last between six months and two years. This depends on a variety of factors such as the amount of filler used, age, metabolism, diet, and overall health in general.

During the Procedure

During the procedure, your doctor, physician assistant, or nurse typically uses a pen to mark the areas to be treated. Your doctor will then inject Juvederm into the target area. They will also lightly massage the area to ensure even distribution and reduce the chance of swelling. The entire procedure usually takes between 15 and 60 minutes, depending on the area treated.

Juvederm injections contain a small amount of pain-reducing lidocaine. This will help minimize any pain or discomfort you feel during treatment and make it go away quickly.
