Botox® is a brand name of the aesthetic version of botulinum toxin, a product very popular non-surgical treatment that relaxes the muscles that cause facial lines and wrinkles. Facial lines that can be treated include the vertical lines between the eyebrows and horizontal lines just above the nose, lines across the forehead, and wrinkles next to the eyes ("crow's feet") . These lines and creases are then softened or can even temporarily completely disappear.
Botox® works by blocking the signal from the nerves to the muscles where they are injected, temporarily relaxing the wrinkle-causing muscles. This improvement in wrinkling gives the face a much more youthful appearance.
The relaxing effect of these toxins lasts 3-6 months.
Botox® injections have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for cosmetic use since April 2002. It has been approved for the treatment of several medical conditions since 1989. The FDA considers Botox® injections a medical procedure that should be performed in a controlled medical environment.

Restylane® and Juvederm®
Restylane® and Juvederm® are excellent solutions to long lasting wrinkle correction. Wrinkle correction with Restylane® and Juvederm® is very safe, rapid, and has almost no downtime. You can see the results immediately, which last much, much longer than wrinkle correction with the collagen fillers of the past.
Restylane® and Juvederm® are composed of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance already present in human skin. There are no animal proteins present in these products so the possibility of allergic reaction is minimized. The Restylane® and Juvederm® molecules attract water into the areas they are placed, which greatly help to maintain long lasting wrinkle correction. In addition to wrinkle correction, volume and fullness can be added to the lips very effectively. Deep nasolabial folds, creases that form between the nose and corner of the mouth, can be softened nicely.
