Juvederm Voluma volumizes deeper areas of the face, used for cheek lift or augmentation to combat aging. The cheek, cheekbones and chin areas of the face can lose volume due to weight-loss or age-related facial fat loss. The VOLUMA provides almost instant effects that add smoothness and suppleness to skin to alleviate these effects.
Wrinkles form when we use our facial muscles to make expressions. For example, when we smile our eye wrinkles become prominent and when we frown the vertical lines between our eyebrows become noticeable. These are called dynamic wrinkles.
When we are young, dynamic wrinkles are visible only during such facial expressions. Our skin springs back to its original state afterwards and the wrinkles disappear. But as we get older, our skin loses its elasticity and the dynamic wrinkles remain to form static wrinkles and folds. These are more or less permanently visible and make us look older.
What is BOTOX?
BOTOX is a natural, purified protein that relaxes wrinkles causing muscles, creating a rejuvenated appearance. The active ingredient in BOTOX treatment is derived from bacteria in much the same way, penicillin is derived from mould. It is manufactured in sterile laboratory conditions. BOTOX is a prescription only medicine and treatment is only available from a qualified medical professional.
How does BOTOX treatment work?
BOTOX can be used to relax specific facial muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles (the wrinkles that are formed during facial expression). Once the muscles are relaxed, you cannot contract them, preventing undesirable facial expressions. The lines gradually smoothen and new lines are prevented from forming.
Will I still be able to make facial expressions?
Although the results are visible, a treatment with BOTOX will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you’ve had work done.
What does BOTOX treatment involve?
It is a non-surgical procedure wherein a small amount of BOTOX is administered into selected facial muscles by a trained doctor using a very fine needle. Generally, it takes around 10 minutes. Discomfort is typically minimal and brief, and an anesthetic is usually not required; the injection may sting for a few seconds. Normal activities can be resumed soon after.
The dose recommended for the treatment will vary depending on your individual situation and the severity of your lines. Your doctor will know what the best dose is for you and which muscles to inject and give you the best results.
Will BOTOX affect my skin color?
Men and women of varying ethnicities and skin types have been successfully treated with BOTOX. Because, it works only on the underlying muscles, there’s no concern of it affecting your skin color and texture.
How long does BOTOX treatment last?
The effect can last up to 4 months before lines slowly begin to return. If you have repeat treatments, the effect tends to last longer.
Does BOTOX treatment cause more wrinkles to form?
BOTOX prevents wrinkles from forming by relaxing the facial muscles that cause expression lines. If you discontinue BOTOX treatment your muscles will eventually resume normal activity and your wrinkles will gradually revert to their pre-treatment levels.
How quickly can I see a difference?
Within 3 days you may notice a softening in the appearance of your frown lines between your brows. It takes up to 7 days to see the full results though the area will continue to improve for up to a month.
Can BOTOX treatment be combined with other products and procedures?
Many people use a combination of cosmetic products and procedures with BOTOX. Your doctor will advise you as to whether or not you will receive better results with your BOTOX treatment if combined with other products and / or procedures.
In the amounts used for the treatment of facial lines, the side effects are usually temporary and localized to the area of the injections. Possible side effects include headaches, pain, burning / stinging, swelling or redness at the injection site, local muscle weakness including drooping eyelids/eyebrows, swollen eyelids, skin tightness, tingling sensations, itching /aching forehead, nausea and flu-like symptoms.
