How Botox Works
Botox, still the most popular aesthetic procedure in the world, treats the frown lines, crow’s feet, and brow lines that create aging effects on your face. It’s a purified protein that prevents signals from nerve cells from reaching the underlying muscles.
This reduces the mobility of these muscles, which makes the lines soften and less prominent. Botox comes from clostridium botulinium, a natural organism that can produce the botulinum neurotoxin. However, Botox is not dangerous, it is a purified strain and not live botulinum neurotoxin.
It’s a common misconception that Botox gives you a “frozen” look, it doesn’t have to be that way. The more Botox that is injected the less movement you will have. If you prefer to have some movement your dosing can be adjusted accordingly. If you are new to Botox you can start with a little and always return for more to decrease movement once you are comfortable with how it feels and looks.
Things You Should Know About Botox
The amount of Botox used depends on your personal needs, but it is recommended that most areas need about 20-25 units of Botox. The results last about 3-4 months, and most people experience few side effects or complications. The process is relatively painless because of the tiny needles used, and takes just a few minutes.
WIFH uses only Botox Cosmetic that has been directly purchased from the manufacturer Allergan, who provides the only FDA-approved formulation of Botox. If you ever question whether you are getting legit Botox, ask to see the vial, it has a hologram logo, this way you can be assured of safety and optimal results.
How Juvederm XC Works
This facial filler, an injectable gel, reduces the moderate-to-severe wrinkles and folds that result from the process of aging, such as laugh lines and nasolabial folds. Juvederm can augment the lips as well.
It’s made from hyaluronic acid, a natural chain of sugars found inside your body that aids in adding volume and hydration to the skin tissue. This acid can absorb up to 1,000 times its own weight in moisture. It also binds to collagen and elastin, to increase the skin’s renewal properties.
Things You Should Know About Juvederm XC
The injection process takes only about 15-30 minutes, and results are immediate. Your volume boost can last 6-9 months, the hyaluronic acid is gradually absorbed by the body. Juvederm is a cross-linked compound, which means its links are chemically bound, making it stronger than when it is in its natural liquid form, so it lasts longer. There’s a low risk of side effects, but you may experience redness and swelling at the injection site that last 2-3 days. Bruising may also occur. A numbing cream is administered topically to reduce discomfort; also Juvederm XC has lidocaine in it which also helps make the process comfortable and relatively painless.
How Voluma Works
This dermal filler, from the makers of Botox and Juvederm, is also a hyaluronic acid filler, specifically designed to target parts of the mid-face region – the apex, apple, and hollow of your cheeks and cheekbones. It adds volume and helps define this region.
Voluma is actually formulated with FDA-approved lidocaine to restore volume loss in the cheeks. As we get older we begin to lose the fat in our cheeks and thus we lose volume in our cheeks, this also helps to contribute to the lines we see around our nose, mouth and chin.
Similar to Juvederm, Voluma is a hyaluronic acid based product, but it is thicker and its cross-linked structure is different enabling it to build upward volume and lift, versus Juvederm that binds with water creating a plumping effect. It is also easily molded and shaped after being injected. By restoring cheek volume, it can help to smooth the lines in the lower face. The overall look is really incredible, while it’s a subtle change it gives you a refreshed, rested and youthful look.
Things You Should Know About Juvederm Voluma
The process includes the administration of a topical numbing cream on your skin. The actual injection takes about 15-30 minutes and is virtually painless, in part because of the lidocaine within the Voluma. Your transformation can be seen as it occurs, and the results last for up to two years. Common side effects are similar to other injectables. They include redness at the injection sites, swelling, and bruising. As with other fillers, these are temporary and minor.
