Botox & Fillers
Botox Cosmetic is an injected prescription medicine that is used to reduce facial lines and wrinkles, and to give clients a more refreshed appearance. Botox injections are a quick and minimally invasive procedure consisting of only a few injections. You can expect to see results about three to ten days after your treatment. Visible results have been shown to last up to four months.
Botox was approved by the FDA in 2004 to treat excessive underarm sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis. According to the International Hyperhidrosis Society, underarm Botox injections can reduce underarm sweating by 82–87%. The effects can typically last 4–12 months, or up to 14 months in some cases.
People who receive underarm Botox injections tend to see results 2–4 days after treatment. The full effects are usually noticeable within 2 weeks. Botox is not a permanent solution for excessive underarm sweating.
Experts do not recommend Botox treatment for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, or for people with a history of neuromuscular disorders.
Juvéderm is an injectable gel filler composed of Hyaluronic Acid: a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps add volume and hydration. Juvéderm is a non-surgical solution to soften facial lines and wrinkles, restore volume, add fullness to the skin, plump lips, add volume to the cheeks and minimize scars. Results are visible immediately, creating a more youthful and invigorating look, and last from 9-12 months.
Xeomin (aka botulinum toxin A) is an injectable neurotoxin that temporarily relaxes muscles to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles created by dynamic facial movements, such as smiling, frowning or raising your eyebrows.
Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines), it is commonly used to treat multiple areas of the face including crow’s feet, forehead lines, lip flips, and gummy smiles.
Xeomin injections require no downtime and can be done after a quick consultation. You can even get the treatment done during your lunch hour and go straight back to work!
Along with helping to soften existing lines, Xeomin can help prevent new wrinkles from forming. It’s common for men and women in their 20s and 30s to get neurotoxin injections as a preventive measure, delaying deep lines from forming.
Xeomin is safe for all skin tones and types. Due to a unique formulation without any additives, it has a lower risk of developing antibodies and patients developing tolerance.
The effects of Xeomin vary per person but typically last 3-4 months. The best results are achieved with consistent use.
