Botox & Juvederm Cosmetic Fillers
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium, which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those frown lines between the brows to form over time. BOTOX® Cosmetic is FDA approved. For people between the ages of 18 and 65.
In clinical trials, nearly 90% of men and women surveyed observed moderate to better improvement in the appearance of frown lines between their brows within one month after treatment. Results can last for up to 4 months, and may vary.
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery claimed BOTOX® Cosmetic the most popular of all physician-administered cosmetic fillers in 2002 and 2003.
Juvederm® is a hyaluronic acid, which naturally occurs in the skin to provide fullness and elasticity. Over time, our skin loses this acid, causing wrinkles and folds to appear.
Juvederm® injections restore your skin's volume, correcting moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It has been used in more than 1.4 million treatments in the U.S. and more than 70 countries worldwide. The effects from Juvederm® treatments usually last for a year or more.
