Have you noticed new fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes, mouth, and forehead? Do you wish you could turn back the hands of time? Not too long ago, if you wanted a more youthful appearance, a surgical facelift was your only option.
Now modern medicine can take years off your appearance without surgery. Botox® and dermal fillers are two great treatment options that can remove a decade of wear and tear from your face. Botox treats the upper part of your face and dermal fillers treat your cheeks and the lower half of your face.
How can Botox make my appearance more youthful?
Botox is a great solution to reduce signs of aging around your eyes and on your forehead. Do you have crow’s feet or fine lines that may be turning into grooves on the sides of your eyes? Perhaps you have prominent horizontal lines across your forehead or furrows between your eyebrows. Botox smooths out all of those fine lines, wrinkles, and furrows.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Botox is the number one minimally invasive, non-surgical cosmetic procedure performed in the United States, with over seven million procedures done every year. It’s approved for use in 97 countries. There’s a reason it’s so popular. It works.
How does Botox work?
When you smile or frown, your facial muscles contract. Over the years, that movement is repeated millions of times, forming lines and grooves in your face. Dr. Casey injects Botox into specific muscles around your eyes and on your forehead. The Botox solution temporarily limits the movement in your facial muscles. Those lines become smoother almost overnight.
You’ll begin to see changes within 24-48 hours. That’s a type of immediate gratification you’ll love.
How long will the Botox effects last?
Botox isn’t a surgical treatment, so it’s not permanent, but you can expect your results to last anywhere from 3-4 months. Many celebrities and actors have standing Botox appointments as part of their skin care regimen. Experts say that having low-dose Botox injected regularly helps prevent those telltale signs of aging.
What areas of the face do Juvedérm® fillers treat?
Dermal fillers are solutions that are injected under the skin that also smooth away signs of aging. Dr. Casey has selected the Juvedérm® suite of dermal fillers for her patients. These fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a natural acid already inside your body that provides volume and hydration to your skin. There are several Juvedérm fillers targeted to specific areas of the face.
Are your cheeks beginning to sag? Have you lost plumpness and firmness there? Juvedérm Voluma™ XC helps restore volume to sunken cheeks. Results last for up to two years.
Are your smile lines that extend from your nose to your mouth turning into grooves? Juvedérm Vollure™ XC softens those deep folds around your mouth and takes years off your age. This filler lasts as long as 18 months.
Lips and surrounding area
Have your lips gotten thinner as you’ve gotten older? You want to recapture those full, luscious lips that your significant other loves to kiss?
Looking at the area around your lips, you may be developing all kinds of fine lines and wrinkles there. Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Volbella™ XC both work to correct wrinkles around your lips, and Volbella helps increase lip volume. They both last up to one year.
