Stop Looking Angry … Reduce Your Frown Lines and Look More Approachable with Botox Cosmetic
Years of squinting, concentrating, or frowning can cause your skin to furrow and crease. As time passes, your skin becomes less elastic and those moderate to severe frown lines between your brows remain … even when your facial muscles aren’t contracting. These frown lines
are often referred to as your 1’s and may make you look angry and unapproachable.
Botox Cosmetic FAQs
|What is Botox Cosmetic and how does it work?||BOTOX Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles to temporarily treat moderate to severe frown lines between the brows of adults 18 to 65 years of age. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes those lines to form between the brows.|
|Will I still be able to make facial expressions?||Although the results are visible, a treatment with BOTOX Cosmetic will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you’ve “had work done.” The muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines between the brows is temporarily reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.|
|When can I expect to see results?||Within 24-48 hours you may notice a softening in the appearance of your frown lines between the brows. The area may continue to improve for up to a month.|
|How long can I expect my results to last?||Results have been shown to last up to 4 months. Of course, your own results may vary.|

Radiesse – Collagen and the Natural Aging Process
Natural collagen is what gives skin a smooth, supple, youthful appearance. As you age, natural collagen breaks down, resulting in wrinkles and loss of facial volume.
The best way to refresh your appearance is by replenishing the volume your skin has lost. This diminishes wrinkles, resulting in a more rejuvenated look. Radiesse® may be an ideal choice.
In addition to providing immediate volume correction, is also stimulates production of your own natural collagen. The result is immediate and lasts up to a year or more in many patients.
|What is Radiesse?||It is a unique calcium based filler, is injected during a procedure that is done at a physician’s or spa’s office. Made from calcium hydroxylapatite, Radiesse is injected through a fine needle and placed into the skin.|
|What does it do?||Radiesse immediately provides the lift needed to diminish wrinkles and folds.
It also acts as a scaffolding, providing structure for your own natural collagen to grow. This collagen stimulation helps extend the initial effect of Radiesse resulting in correction of up to one year or more in many patients.
|How long can I expect my results to last?||Results have been shown to last up to one year. Of course, your own results may vary.|
Your smile is too important to ignore.

Voluma XC FAQs

What does JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC do?

Your healthcare professional injects the smooth gel into the cheek area to temporarily restore volume lost to aging in people over the age of 21. This gives you an instant lift with natural looking results that can last up to two years with optimal treatment.|
|What should I expect following the procedure?||In the clinical study, the most common side effects of JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC were temporary reactions at the treatment site. Such reactions include tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps or bumps, bruising, pain, redness, discoloration, and itching. These side effects were usually moderate in severity and did not require treatment. These side effects generally lasted 2 to 4 weeks. Because JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC treatment is non-surgical, you may return to your normal activities 24 hours after treatment.
Within that window, it is also recommended to avoid strenuous exercise and extended exposure to the sun and heat.

Help take your wrinkles all the way to smooth with Belotero.
Show your personality, not your age.
The natural signs of aging may be saying more about you than you realize. Have you noticed any wrinkles that remain around your mouth, even after you’ve stopped smiling, or any small etched-in lines above your lips that used to disappear with makeup? Those lines and wrinkles may be drawing attention away from your radiant personality while subtly revealing your age.
What is Belotero Balance?
Belotero Balance is a prescription injection that is approved to temporarily smooth out and fill in moderate-to-severe etched-in folds (the folds or wrinkles that go from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth).
Belotero Balance FAQs
|What is Belotero Balance?||This injectable gel is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler that helps smooth moderate-to-severe etched-in lines and wrinkles for a natural, finished look.|
|What are the benefits of Belotero Balance?||Through the years, your skin’s natural ability to bounce back begins to diminish. Skin begins to lose collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid (HA). Some of the structural volume within your face slowly decreases. Skin is more prone to develop etched-in lines and wrinkles.
While some fillers are designed to rebuild facial volume and structure, Belotero Balance injectable gel takes a more targeted approach, specifically treating moderate-to-severe etched-in lines and wrinkles, such as vertical lip lines.
|How does it work?||Only Balance is created using the cohesive polydensified matrix (CPM) process that evenly and completely blends into your skin, providing a natural, finished look.
Belotero Balance integrates within your skin’s tissue, smooths your moderate-to-severe etched-in facial lines, maintains normal movement and facial expressions, and feels natural to the touch.
It specifically treats the highly visible areas around the mouth, improving the appearance of stubborn facial lines and wrinkles.
|What about other skin treatment options?||While common skin treatment options such as chemical peels and laser treatments may also be beneficial, Belotero Balance integrates directly into the skin, enhancing your appearance with minimal downtime.|
|How many treatments do I need before I see a difference?||A single syringe goes a long way. Just one treatment creates an elegant finishing touch to your treatment regimen, noticeably improving the appearance of those stubborn lines and wrinkles.
Belotero Balance is injected into the skin in a simple, quick treatment that can be performed today.
|How long do results last?||Results are expected to last 6 months or longer in many patients.|
