About Botox® and Juvederm®
Botox is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium Botulinum bacterium. Botox® Cosmetic is a non-surgical treatment that can temporarily reduce moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, around the eyes and mouth by causing the weakening of targeted muscles. During treatment, very low doses of Botox® Cosmetic are injected directed into the muscles that cause stubborn lines. Botox® works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscles; this reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those persistent lines to form.
Juvederm® can instantly refresh and rejuvenate your appearance by smoothing unwanted lines, restoring natural contours and replacing lost cheek volume. Juvederm® is placed beneath wrinkles and folds to ‘fill in’ or ‘plump up’ the depression. The most appropriate lines to treat with Juvederm® are those that are described as static lines you can see when your face is not moving (like smile lines). The most commonly treated areas include smile lines (or nasolabial folds), mouth lines (or marionette lines), smoker lines (or vertical lip lines), cheeks or chin.
Prior to Treatment
Prior to treatment you will be scheduled for a complimentary consultation with our medical director, with expertise in aesthetic injections, as well as over 20 years experience in creating beautiful aesthetic outcomes for patients of all ages. our medical director will recommend a custom treatment program based on each client’s medical history and needs. As the amount of correction varies from client to client, a price quote will be provided at the time of consultation.
The treatment takes approximately 30-50 minutes depending on the amount of correction required, and no recovery time is needed. Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. A mild localized anesthetic can be used to minimize or usually eliminate the pain associated with this type of treatment.
After treatment you may experience some mild redness which usually lasts for approximately an hour. There is minor inflammation or swelling from the treatment as a result of the expansion of facial tissue. This normally resolves well within 24 hours but has been reported to last as long as 48 hours for some clients. Some patients may also experience some tenderness at the injection site. Application of ice intermittently for a short period after the treatment will help reduce any swelling. Strenuous exercise should be avoided for 4 hours after injection and the treated areas should not be rubbed for 24 hours after treatment.
The Softlift™ procedure provides a natural-looking makeover, unveiling a more refreshed version of you. The majority of clients notice a significant increase in volume in the areas treated, using the Soft Lift™ technique. Facial skin will appear lifted, thicker, and tightened. The overall effect is a healthier, younger and rejuvenated appearance. Lax skin and hollowed cheeks are greatly improved, as is transparent skin with broken vessels. Touch up treatments may be desired to maintain a more youthful facial appearance.
Softlift™ should not be administered to pregnant women, nursing mothers or individuals suffering with myasthenia gravis or muscle diseases.
