Botox Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe forehead lines, crow's feet, and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults.
When injected, Botox weakens or paralyzes specific muscles and blocks certain nerve signals. That keeps the muscles from contracting, preventing them from forming lines and wrinkles (and temporarily erasing present ones).
You should see the fewer wrinkles in 3-7 days, and the results can last 3-12 months.
Jeuveau, like Botox, uses purified botulinum toxin to temporarily relax the small muscle groups that cause dynamic wrinkles. When injected into muscle tissue, Jeuveau blocks nerve signals so that the brain can no longer instruct the injected muscles to move.
Dermal fillers are made of a gel-like substance. This jelly-like material is injected into specific areas to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles, skin folds, and acne scars. Dermal fillers are temporary, absorbable material.
How long the dermal filler lasts depends on the material used, and the area treated. Several types of dermal fillers can improve the look of your face.
Some of the more preferred include those with hyaluronic acid. Your body naturally makes hyaluronic acid as a component of your skin's connective tissue.
How well the dermal filler works depends on the health and age of your skin. It also hinges on the skill of the medical professional that performs the procedure; Dr. Jones at Contours LaserSpa Med Spa are specially trained in the most advanced treatment methods.
Juvederm and Juvederm Ultra typically last between six months and one year.* These fillers create fuller lips, eliminate the folds between your nose and mouth, and can treat smaller wrinkles.
