BOTOX injections are only a temporary solution to treat wrinkles. The effects last three to six months and will require additional treatments.There are minimal risks of BOTOX when used in limited doses for cosmetic dynamic wrinkles. Common side effects include bruising, swelling or a burning sensation while the injection is taking place. We recommend not to take Aspirin, Mortin, Advil or other analgesics two weeks before injection to avoid bruising.
In most cases, Botox is indicated for lines between the brows, forehead, and eyes, whereas Juvéderm and Restylane are used to treat lines around the mouth and to plump up the lips. Facial fillers can be used to enhance your lips and to provide a firm foundation under surface skin to support facial wrinkles to lie flat as they did years ago. Turn back the clock to a time when your facial skin was smooth and supple and your lips were plump and sensuous.
Juvéderm and Restylane are based on a natural, plant-derived substance called hyaluronic acid. This safe, non-allergenic ingredient binds to water molecules in the skin, creating a firm, plump underlying foundation. Skin lies smooth and looks youthful again. This product is especially a good choice for the lines that run from the nose to the corners of your mouth, and it works for almost all skin types and colors. Easy to tolerate and non-invasive, facial fillers give you fast results.
Botox and Juvéderm have proven to be a perfect complement to teeth whitening and other cosmetic dental procedures. Contact us today to set up an appointment to discuss your skin rejuvenating options in our convenient Montville New Jersey office.
