Years of frowning, laughing, squinting, and raising your eyebrows can lead to forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet around your eyes. Botox® injections target these muscles and reduce their movement so your skin appears more youthful.
Botox is a cosmetic injectable solution made from naturally occurring botulinum toxin. When your dermatologist injects Botox into the area between your eyebrows, across your forehead, or at the outer corners of your eyes, the botulinum toxin temporarily reduces muscle movement in these areas. As a result, lines appear smoother and less noticeable.
Results appear within 48 hours of receiving Botox and can last up to four months or more for moderate to severe lines and wrinkles. You can still make all your natural facial expressions with Botox, but they won’t appear as deep or as prominent as they did before Botox.
Dermal fillers are injectable solutions that often include hyaluronic acid, a hydrating solution your body produces naturally. As you age, you make less of your own hyaluronic acid. This contributes to dry skin and the effects of aging, including lines, wrinkles, and volume loss in your facial features.
The Juvéderm® collection of fillers contains hyaluronic acid in a smooth, injectable gel. When your board-certified dermatologist at Lumos Dermatology® injects this gel into areas around your nose, mouth, and cheeks, it restores lost volume. Juvéderm hyaluronic acid fillers plump your lips, add volume to your cheeks, and smooth your skin so wrinkles and lines fade into the background.
Depending on your individual needs, your doctor recommends the fillers that are right for you. These include Juvéderm Voluma® XC to lift cheeks and add volume, Juvéderm Vollure™ XC for lines around your nose and mouth, and Juvéderm Volbella® XC or Juvéderm Ultra XC to add volume and smooth lip lines. Results are long-lasting — up to two years — depending on the type of injection you receive.
Yes. Botox is the most widely researched and studied treatment of its kind, with more than 16 years of studies regarding its safety and effectiveness. The dermal fillers the team at Lumos Dermatology® offers, including Juvéderm, Restylane®, Radiesse®, and Belotero Balance®, are all FDA approved to treat moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles.
When you receive Botox and fillers from an experienced dermatologist who understands your skin type and internal facial structure, you know you’re getting the highest standard of care. This is why the board-certified dermatologists at the practice perform treatments themselves, every time.
