Botox is a drug made from a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. The FDA approved Botox for cosmetic procedures in April 2002 to treat moderate to severe glabellar lines, also known as frown lines. These and other wrinkles occur as the muscles under the skin contract such as when we laugh, smile or frown.
Botox injections temporarily weaken the facial muscles in the area injected and relax the skin's surface thereby removing the wrinkles. It is a very quick procedure with minimal to no downtime. Within days after the procedure, you can see an improvement that can last 3 to 6 months.
When Botox is injected in small doses into specific muscles, it blocks the chemical signals that cause muscles to contract. When the muscles can't tighten, the skin flattens and appears smoother and less wrinkled.
This treatment involves injecting a gel under the wrinkle or deep facial line to push the wrinkle outward, thereby, making it fuller and less noticeable, giving you a more vibrant and younger looking appearance.

Juvéderm™ is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that has demonstrated its safety and effectiveness for skin of all types and colors. This injectable gel is a nonsurgical treatment that requires no allergy skin test and minimal recovery or downtime.
You should see an immediate improvement in the treatment areas. Most clients need one treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing, and the results last up to 12 months or more. However, results may vary and correction is temporary. Supplemental “touch up” treatments are generally required to achieve and maintain optimal results.
