As we age, we develop frown lines, forehead wrinkles & crow’s feet around our eyes. Botox temporarily erases these wrinkles & fine lines that develop with aging & facial expressions. By blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles, the injected muscle no longer contracts, causing wrinkles to relax and soften, which results in a fresh younger looking appearance. Don’t let frown lines make you look older.
Dermal Fillers (Hyaluronic Acid)
Collagen replacement injections for volume loss to refresh the appearance by smoothing away unwanted lines and restoring natural contours of the face. Cheeks, lips and areas around the mouth respond very well to these soft filling injections. Most fillers are Lidocaine-mixed for comfort and decreased pain. This is a very effective treatment to get that younger look. Injectable dermal fillers can plump thin lips, enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases, remove wrinkles, and improve the appearance of recessed scars. Aging is responsible for decreasing volume in our faces, which can cause our skin to sag. Volumizers such as Juvederm can restore volume to areas like the cheek and chin. The optimal effects of this treatment can be seen 2 weeks after a treatment as the hyaluronic attaches itself to the water in the dermal skin layer and can last from 6 months to 2 years, depending on the recommended product provided by our qualified professionals at our DermaNuva Skin and Health location.
