It can be frustrating when you feel alive, energetic and youthful on the inside, but the mirror tells a different story. Wrinkles, lines and creases happen, no matter how often or how hard you exercise, and no matter how disciplined you are with nutrition. You may look younger than many of your peers and you certainly feel it, but those lines will always find a way to creep in.
Luckily, if you want an easy, non-surgical option for your wrinkles, there’s BOTOX®.
A Long History of Success
BOTOX ® was approved by the Canadian government for treating muscle overactivity disorders like misalignment of the eyes more than a 30 years ago. It is also approved for issues with hyperactive muscles like cerebral palsy in children. For the last decade the most common use of Botox is cosmetic. Primarily for wrinkles and creases around the eyes and forehead.
How BOTOX Cosmetic™ Works
BOTOX Cosmetic™ is designed to smooth lines and wrinkles caused by frowning and squinting. After an injection of BOTOX Cosmetic™, the muscles that cause these wrinkles are relaxed, and your face looks refreshed. The treatment is so fast and seamless that many people even have it over their lunch hour.
Botox will last 4-7 months, and should be repeated as necessary. Regular treatments prevent your wrinkles and expression lines from becoming deeper.
While BOTOX Cosmetic™ relaxes the muscles, fillers work to actually fill in the lines, wrinkles and valleys so they are no longer visible. One of the most commonly used fillers is JUVEDERM.
Juvederm is a sugar molecule known as hyaluronic acid, in a gel form that flows into your skin smoothly. This provides a natural look and a natural feel. JUVEDERM is made by the same company that brought you Botox Cosmetic™. Treatment generally takes about 30 minutes and the results can last up to 18 months depending on the type of Juvederm used. Under the Juvederm family we offer: Voluma, Ultra Plus and the newest filler Volbella; a smoother thinner consistency which works wonders for the lips and under the eyes by adding volume to the areas while giving a natural appearance. Fillers are a great way to add volume to some sunken or hollowed out areas of the face such as around the mouth or cheekbone areas as well as plumping up the lips. A natural, no downtime and easy way for a more youthful appearance.
