Face is the only part of our bodies that is always naked. It also has the most underlying muscles pulling it in different directions. As we mature, prolonged sun exposure and repeated mobility of the skin lead to appearance of unwelcome lines and wrinkles.
While there is a lot to be said for ageing gracefully, overwhelming majority of men and women consider facial makeup, hair removal and various skin rejuvenation treatments as socially acceptable, and even required behavior to enhance their appearance.
I'm of the opinion that you should always look as young as you feel and invite you to consider the following advances in facial aesthetics as addition to your current anti-ageing regiment. After all, grace is more than skin deep.
Produced by the bacterium C. botulinum, Botox is a purified form of naturally occurring neurotoxin that is officially authorized by Food and Drug Administration for treatment of facial wrinkles.
Contrary to common misconception Botox is NOT a poison. Just like alcohol, and oxygen it is a toxin, and can be harmful only in large quantities, similar to salt, aspirin and even sun light. A lethal dose of Botox would consist of over 2500 units, which is over 100 times more than a recommended dose per area.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is introduced into muscles of the face to reduce their activity and prevent further deepening of obvious, unsightly wrinkles such as 'frown' lines, crow's feet, etc. By relaxing selected muscles, the skin is allowed to recover from repeated creasing and folding caused by them. Long-term, regular use of the product obtains best results and often patients will note increasing duration of the effect.
BOTOX has a record of safety in over 20 years of clinical use. Side effects are commonly restricted to bruising and slight tenderness at the site of injection. Improper placement of Botox can also lead to effect on the wrong muscle group. The side effect of Botox can be controlled if it is administered by a professional and when appropriate care is taken – pre and post treatment.
Visible results have been proven to last up to 4 months. After the Botox® treatment, the product is naturally metabolized by your body, and is completely gone within 6 months. So if you don’t like it, you can welcome those wrinkles back with no strings attached.
Many people pair fillers like Juvederm with Botox to enhance the wrinkle-free look. Studies demonstrate that fillers break down slower when paired with Botox. Since Botox hinders muscle contractions surrounding the area treated with a filler, the volume and smoothness offered by the filler can last longer.
With real, noticeable results, no surgery and no recovery time, there are many reasons why BOTOX® Cosmetic has been chosen by millions of men and women.

With JUVÉDERM® XC you get the smooth results you expect, with the improved comfort you want.
Everyone’s skin ages differently and JUVÉDERM® XC may be used to rejuvenate multiple problem areas. From smile lines to marionette lines, you can smooth away unwanted wrinkles and restore natural contours.
Young, healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). But as you age, sunlight and other factors can reduce the amount of HA in your skin. The lack of HA causes your skin to lose structure and volume, creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds - like those parentheses lines around your nose and mouth.
Using a dermal filler like JUVÉDERM® XC is a safe and effective way to replace the HA your skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds.
In addition, dermal fillers can stimulate the body to create its own natural collagen. Besides lifting the characteristics of the face, restore volume, and improve wrinkles, they rejuvenate the skin providing a smooth youthful look.
