Are you seeing more lines and wrinkles than you would like? Using a very fine needle, BOTOX® can be injected into the facial muscles that cause these lines and wrinkles. The ingredients in BOTOX® bind to the acetylcholine receptors, essential in facial muscle contraction, and make it more difficult for muscle activity to occur. This muscle relaxation gives you a more youthful appearance. For most of our patients, the effects of a BOTOX® injection can last anywhere from 3-6 months. As they wear off, previously treated lines and wrinkles will reappear. With repeated treatment, frown lines and crow’s feet often appear less severe than before, since the muscles have been so relaxed. Most patients see results as early as within 24 to 48 hours of injection, when the BOTOX® ingredients are still binding to the acetylcholine receptors. Results typically become more visible in 7 to 10 days after injection, with the maximum effect visible at 30 days.
Fillers such as Voluma instantly add volume in and around the lips or cheek area, all with minimal to no downtime and a natural look. Same-day appointments make it easy to plump up lips and smooth outlines on the go. A patient can also have wrinkles and folds in the face and around the mouth filled in. Fillers are FDA-approved and administered only by highly-trained medical professionals such as our Nurse Practitioners.
