BOTOX® is one of the most extensively studied cosmetic treatments on the market today, and enjoys a considerable amount of commercial success in 78 countries. This is because it is one of the most effective injectable treatments available to treat dynamic wrinkles, or wrinkles caused by muscle movement.
BOTOX® can be used to treat the following common types of wrinkles:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead lines
- Vertical lip lines
- Chin Dimpling
This injectable treatment can target these dynamic wrinkles by addressing their source: muscle contraction. BOTOX® is part of a class of injectable aesthetic treatments called neuromodulators. These treatments are each comprised of a slightly different formula of botulinum toxin, and work to slow muscle contractions at the site of injection. This gives dynamic wrinkles time to smooth over and soften, revealing beautiful, younger-looking skin.
Each BOTOX® injection treatment takes approximately 10 minutes and features virtually no downtime. Because the results of each session only last about four months, patients need to undergo routine injections to sustain any visible changes.
Approved by the FDA for cosmetic use in 2006, JUVEDERM® is one of the most popular injectable aesthetic treatments available today. While BOTOX® works to correct wrinkles associated with muscle movements, JUVEDERM® targets those caused by collagen depletion due to aging.
Wrinkles that JUVEDERM® can treat that are caused by collagen depletion are the:
- Forehead lines
- Marionette lines
- Smile lines
Collagen is the main structural protein found in the skin. As you get older, the amount of collagen that your body naturally produces begins to decrease. While this depletion of collagen usually isn’t significant enough to cause any health problems, it is responsible for many of the wrinkles and fine lines that crop up on the skin. JUVEDERM® is part of a class of injectables called “dermal fillers”. Most of these products are made of hyaluronic acid, and work to both add instant and long-lasting volume to wrinkles and fine lines.
Each treatment takes about 20 minutes and involves no downtime. While the results of each treatment can last between 9-12 months, additional injections will be necessary to sustain your results.
