What is Botox® Cosmetic and how does it work?
Botox® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into your facial muscles. It is used to reduce the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows and “crow’s feet” that develop around the eyes. It works by blocking the nerve impulses to the injected sites, reducing the muscle activity that causes these persistent lines to form. The effects of Botox® Cosmetic are temporary, lasting up to 4 months.
Why should I consider Botox® Cosmetic?
You may have noticed frown lines between your brows or “crow’s feet” near your eyes, making you look tired or even older than you are. Ask Dr. Morton if Botox® is right for you. Not only will you experience real, visible results, but there is no recovery time or surgery needed for Botox® Cosmetic fillers.
Is there any medical reason to use Botox® Cosmetic?
Yes. Botox® Cosmetic may be used in the treatment of Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMJ/TMD). Botox® Cosmetic is injected into facial and jaw muscles to provide relief from jaw tension and soreness. Additionally, these injections can reduce bruxism (teeth grinding), minimize lockjaw, and eliminate headaches caused by teeth grinding.
How long can I expect my results to last?
Visible results can last up to 4 months. Your own results may vary. Dr. Morton will discuss with you what you should expect and when you should schedule your next appointment.
What is JUVÉDERM®?
JUVÉDERM® is a collection of cosmetic fillers, each made from hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in skin that helps it retain moisture, soften texture, and increase volume. JUVÉDERM® products are used to help restore skin to its age-correct texture
and volume and to reverse the effects of wrinkles and skin volume loss.
Why should I consider JUVÉDERM® products?
Skin volume loss and wrinkling can cause your face to look tired or older than it should. With JUVÉDERM®, you can restore the youthful look and feel of your skin.
How many treatments will I need to see results?
Most patients see their desired results in only one treatment.
How long will the results last?
The results with JUVÉDERM® products typically last for about 9-12 months after a single treatment.
Is there anything I need to do after the treatment?
For the first 24 hours following treatment with JUVÉDERM® products, you should avoid strenuous exercise, extensive exposure to sun or heat, and alcoholic beverages. Failure to do so may result in minor temporary redness, swelling, or itching at the injection site.
Does treatment with JUVÉDERM® products require any incisions in the skin?
No, there are no incisions required with treatment, which means that recovery time is minimal.
How will I know if JUVÉDERM® products are right for me?
Schedule a consultation with our team. Dr. Morton will help you decide the best course of action. We will consider your personal goals, overall health, and any medications you are taking to determine whether JUVÉDERM® products may be right for you.
