BOTOX® injections are a great way to eliminate wrinkles and improve the appearance of both moderate and severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines around eyes. These lines can make you look tired, angry and older. In recent tests, BOTOX® has also been effective in reducing headaches in migraine patients.

Injectable and Fillers FAQ
Do injectables hurt?
Any injection will cause mild pain. However, we use a variety of measures to minimize this discomfort. Ice, topical anesthetic creams, and/or nerve blocks with lidocaine are all techniques used to reduce pain, bruising, and swelling.
Will I bruise?
This varies from person to person. In general, BOTOX or Dysport rarely causes bruising. However, facial fillers, especially near the corners of the mouth, often result in mild bruising. Avoidance of blood thinners can help reduce bruising, as long as you are cleared to stop these by your medical doctor. Make-up can be applied the same day for camouflage, if necessary.
I am only 25 years old. Am I too young to start?
Many lines, folds, and depressions are hereditary. It is not too early to address these. In fact, many facial fillers are made up of natural constituents of the skin, such as hyaluronic acid or collagen. Therefore, it makes sense to restore these to the skin at an early age.
Can BOTOX® Cosmetic or Facial Injectable Fillers be performed on the same day as my consultation?
Absolutely. When you call to make your appointment with one of our specialists, just specify whether you are planning on having a consultation with or without actual injectable treatment on the same day.
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm Ultra injectable gel is a colorless acid gel that is injected into the facial tissue to smooth wrinkles and folds, especially around the nose and mouth. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in the body that delivers nutrients, hydrates the skin by maintaining water, and acts as a cushioning agent.
What does it do?
Juvederm Ultra injectable gel temporarily adds colume to facial tissue and restores a smoother appearance to the face.
How long does Juvederm last?
You should see immediate improvement in the treated area. Results vary but may last 6 months or more.
What are the side effects?
Most side effects are mild or moderate in nature and usually last less than 7 days. The most common side effects include temporary injection site reactions such as redness, pain/tenderness, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, bruising, itching, and discoloration. As with all skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection.
Is there anyone that can not be treated?
Juvederm Ultra should not be used in patients who hace severe allergies marked by history of anaphylaxis, a history or presence of multiple severe allergies, or patients with a history of allergies to gram-positive bacterial proteins. The doctor will ask you about your medical history to determine if you are an appropriate candidate for treatment.
What should I expect with Juvederm treatments?
The doctor will go over a list of pre and post treatment procedures with you. If you are taking aspirin of ibuprofen you may experience increased bruising or bleeding at the injection site. Inform your doctor if you are using any of these substances and if you are planning on having any chemical peels or laser treatments. Juvederm should be used with caution in patients on immunosuppressive therapy as there may be an increased risk of infection. The safety of Juvederm has not been established in breastfeeding females, during pregnancy, or in patients under 18.
What are the post treatment procedures?
For the first 24 hours following the treatment, you should avoid stenuous exercise, excessive sun or heat, and the consumption of alcoholic beverages. This minimizes the risk of temporary redness, swelling and/or itching at the treatment sites. These temporary side effects generally resolve themselves within one week. An ice pack can be applied to the site if you experience swelling. You may apply make-up as usual.
