BOTOX® cosmetic is for the cosmetic treatment of frown lines (the wrinkles between the eyebrows), forehead wrinkles, wrinkles around the eyes (“crow’s feet”), upper lip wrinkles, chin, neck and nose (“bunny lines”). BOTOX® is also used to treat excessive underarm perspiration, migraine headaches, and overactive bladder among many other uses. Injection of small amounts of BOTOX® cosmetic into muscles of the face and neck cause these to weaken, thereby improving the appearance of the overlying wrinkles, reducing frowning, and resulting in a softer, smoother appearance of the overlying skin.
Treatment with dermal fillers (such as Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse and others) can smooth out facial folds and wrinkles, add volume to the lips, and contour facial features that have lost their volume and fullness due to aging, sun exposure, illness, etc. Facial rejuvenation can be carried out with minimal complications. These dermal fillers are injected under the skin with a very fine needle. This produces natural appearing volume under wrinkles and folds which are lifted up and smoothed out. The results can open be seen immediately.
