Botox and Juvederm (Hyaluronic acid) treatments are a safe, common and very effective option for facial rejuvenation. The injections are done in the office, take less than 30 minutes and come with no downtime- making them an ideal fit for a busy lifestyle. The process starts with a consultation with Dr. Bedri, to determine if the patient is a good candidate for the procedure, and to discuss their esthetic goals. During the consultation, Dr. Bedri may recommend products from our skincare line available in the office to help our patients optimize the effects of the treatment. Botox and Juvederm are often used together for a natural, noticeably more youthful look and softened wrinkles.
Botox is commonly used for the correction of dynamic wrinkles, such as crow’s feet, which are most apparent when activating the muscles in the area. The product is injected to relax the muscle, and has the effect of softening the lines, making them less noticeable. Static wrinkles, such as marionette lines, are the result of the loss of collagen in our skin, and are present even when the muscles are at rest. Juvederm can be injected to fill the lines, adding volume to the areas where the folds are noticeable to give an instantly smoother, more youthful look.
After the injections, it is common to experience some slight bruising, which can be typically concealed with make-up. The effects of Botox can last up to four months, and Juvederm results up to one year.
Our office participates in a rewards program called Brilliant Distinctions, which enables our patients to earn points with each treatment and redeem them as a discount on their next injection!
