Over time, repetitive facial movements such as furrowing the brow, frowning and smiling will cause wrinkles and fine lines, especially around the eyes and mouth in the form of crow’s feet and frown lines.Botox®
Botox® is the brand name for a natural, purified protein, Botulinum toxin A, which when injected into facial muscles can smooth and relax facial lines and wrinkles. Injecting extremely small doses of Botox® directly into the hyperfunctional muscles causes them to relax, thereby reducing overlying wrinkles.
Unlike surgery, Botox® is fast, simple, and minimally invasive treatment, with no down time or recovery. Most people return to work or normal activity immediately following treatment. Within approximately 3 to 7 days after treatment, facial lines and wrinkles are reduced and patients report looking more natural and relaxed. The effect lasts from 3 to 4 months.
Juvederm improves the facial appearance by lifting and adding volume to the wrinkles and folds in the treatment area.Juvaderm
Common signs of lower facial aging include thinning of the lips, deepening of the nasolabial folds (a crease from the outer side of the nostril to the corner of the mouth), and the development of ‘marionette’ lines (running vertically downward from the corners of the mouth).
Such changes are largely caused by a loss of hyaluronic acid from these facial tissues. Juvederm is an injectable filler made of hyaluronic acid, a natural complex sugar that “plumps” skin, providing a smooth and supple appearance by filling in the areas of lost volume. The transparent Juvederm gel is injected with a syringe into the mid- to deep dermis of the face. After 6 to 9 months, the biocompatible compound is naturally absorbed into the body.
LATISSE® users can expect to experience longer, fuller and darker eyelashes in as little as 8 weeks, with full results in 16 weeks.Latisse®
Available only through a doctor, LATISSE® is a once-daily prescription treatment applied to the base of the upper eyelashes with a sterile, single-use-per-eye disposable applicator.
To maintain effect, continued treatment with LATISSE® is required. If use of LATISSE® is discontinued, eyelashes will gradually return to where they were prior to treatment over a period of weeks to months (average eyelash hair cycle).
Dr. Tonica Johnson, board-certified Ophthalmologist, is trained and certified by Asthetic Medical Educators Training program to provide Botox® as well as Juvaderm injections for decreasing the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles.
