BOTOX® Cosmetic and Fillers
Aging can cause the skin to lose collagen and volume, which can lead to wrinkles, fine lines, and other facial imperfections. Repetitive muscle movements can also leave permanent creases in the skin that produce an aged or upset appearance. BOTOX® Cosmetic and JUVÉDERM® products can minimize signs of aging on the surface of the skin and deliver natural-looking rejuvenation. Fillers made of hyaluronic acid can fill grooves in the midface, smooth facial creases, and enhance facial definition. BOTOX® Cosmetic is designed to reduce muscle contractions that cause wrinkles, producing a younger and more pleasing aesthetic. During your consultation, our experienced injector, Grace Vershinina, will assess your condition and develop a customized treatment plan that addresses your unique cosmetic goals.
Reasons to Consider BOTOX® Cosmetic and Fillers
One of the most visible indicators of aging is the loss or displacement of facial volume. Sunken cheeks and pronounced creases can contribute to a displeasing and aged appearance. Fillers can restore volume to cheeks and deep wrinkles to produce a plump and more youthful surface.
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Over time, the skin begins to lose collagen and elasticity, resulting in the development of creases throughout the face. Fillers target fine lines and wrinkles by replenishing the body’s supply of hyaluronic acid, and BOTOX® Cosmetic can halt repetitive muscle contractions that cause wrinkles.
Poor Skin Texture
Acne, congenital conditions, and trauma can leave bothersome scars and other textural imperfections on the skin. Fillers can improve scarred or recessed areas of the face without the need for surgery, creating a smoother and more attractive surface that can be enjoyed instantly.
