What is Botox®?
Botox® Cosmetic is a well-established, FDA-approved treatment for forehead worry lines and crow’s feet wrinkles around your eyes. These wrinkles result from repeated muscle contractions, such as smiling and furrowing your brow.
Over time, these muscle contractions leave fine lines and wrinkles on your face that don’t disappear when you stop smiling. Botox reduces the appearance of these wrinkles by relaxing the muscles that cause them.
What are Juvéderm facial fillers?
Since Botox targets wrinkles caused by muscle contractions and not age or gravity, you may wish to complement your treatment with injectable facial fillers.
The team at Healthy Outcomes AZ offers Juvederm Voluma®, the only injectable gel filler that can produce a more youthful looking facial contour for up to two years in your cheeks. Juvéderm is an FDA-approved treatment for moderate to severe facial wrinkles, such as:
- Smile lines
- Marionette lines or parentheses
- Sunken cheeks
- Loose, saggy skin
Juvéderm facial fillers use hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your body that fortifies your skin with vital nutrients, moisture, and volume. They create a younger looking appearance by filling in tissue structure you may have lost over the years.
What should I expect from a Botox® or Juvéderm treatment?
First, an expert provider at Healthy Outcomes AZ meets with you to discuss your concerns and beauty goals. They help you develop a personalized treatment plan to achieve your desired outcome.
During a Botox or Juvéderm treatment, your practitioner uses a fine needle to inject a small amount of the appropriate substance into specific areas on your face. Most people require several injections per session, but the exact number depends on your needs.
The process usually takes less than 10 minutes and requires no downtime for recovery. You can return to work or resume your regular activities immediately. You may experience temporary bruising or redness, but these minor side effects subside within a day or two.
