BOTOX & Fillers: Injectables Provide Youthful Appearance

botox fillers st johns vein centerEven if you take good care of your skin, years of smiling, frowning, squinting, and other natural facial motions and expressions take their toll. Skin loses facial fat and natural elasticity, and gravity sets in. Wrinkles tend to develop around the eyes and mouth and on the forehead. These can add years to your appearance, but there are several ways to effectively treat them by utilizing non-invasive cosmetic procedures.

BOTOX and other injectables are a quick, safe, and effective way to regain a more youthful look. They require no downtime at all and are ideal for almost anyone who wants to rejuvenate their appearance. Pain is very minimal and is often compared to a slight pinprick or a bug bite.

BOTOX & Fillers 


BOTOX is a refined and purified muscle relaxant that is injected in very small, precise doses into designated areas. It blocks some of the signals that cause your facial muscles to contract and relax. It reduces the appearance of wrinkles including frown lines between your eyebrows, crow’s feet at the corners of your eyes, and forehead furrows.

Superficial lines nearly disappear after treatment, and deeper wrinkles will be greatly reduced. When performed at our clinic, BOTOX produces a natural-looking result that gives you a well-rested, more youthful appearance.

Results are usually apparent after just a few days and last for anywhere from three months to a year. Follow-up injections may be needed to maintain your refreshed appearance.

Juvederm is a sterile gel made from a sugar that occurs naturally in your skin, helping to add volume and hydration. It is injected into targeted areas of your skin. While BOTOX relaxes the muscles under wrinkles, these products fill the wrinkle. They help fill facial tissues that naturally thin as we age, etching lines around the mouth and making cheeks look hollow.

These fillers are often used to treat lines that run from the nose to the mouth or to smooth hollows under your eyes. You can resume your normal activities right after treatment, although you may have a little swelling or puffiness for a day or two.

The effects are immediate, but it can take a few days for the final results to be apparent. Results last for an average of four to six months. Maintenance injections are required approximately one to four times a year.

What’s New? 

Voluma is the latest addition to the fillers available. Similar to Juvederm, it’s ideal for cheekbone accentuation and cheek pad fill. It’s also perfect for helping to restore a thin, well-defined jaw line.

Voluma can often be used in conjunction with BOTOX on the jaw and neck areas to achieve natural-looking yet dramatic results.

BOTOX and other injectables are very safe and effective. Each has its own benefits for particular types and locations of wrinkles, so our professional staff will help determine which treatment – or combination of treatments – is right to help you regain your youthful appearance.
