BOTOX® & Juvederm®
Say Goodbye to Wrinkles and Lines – Without Surgery
After decades of laughing, smiling, squinting and furrowing the brow, the face begins to develop wrinkles, lines, and other signs of aging. The skin also begins to lose volume, which can result in hollowed cheeks and sagging skin. Today, two effective, non-surgical solutions have gained immense popularity in counteracting these effects. BOTOX® Cosmetic and JUVÉDERM®, available at our Springfield office, can help you achieve a younger-looking, more refreshed appearance within a matter of days.
BOTOX® Cosmetic and JUVÉDERM® are injectable treatments that can help you achieve a younger, more refreshed facial appearance. Both are capable of reducing lines and wrinkles, but they work in two very different ways. By scheduling a consultation with Drs. Papale and Bouvier, they can help you determine which of these treatments will best meet your needs. We invite you to take a moment and familiarize yourself with the capabilities and advantages of these safe, beneficial treatments.
If you wish to reduce wrinkles and achieve a younger, more refreshed facial appearance, but have reservations about invasive surgery, BOTOX® Cosmetic can be an excellent solution. BOTOX® Cosmetic consists of a naturally occurring protein called botulinum toxin, which found some of its earliest medical applications in treating eyelid spasms and misaligned eyes. It was later discovered that by injecting very small amounts of this protein into facial muscles, the muscles become relaxed, and wrinkles become considerably less visible. Patients who undergo BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment at our Springfield office can expect visible results within a few days. It is especially effective in reducing fine wrinkles at the corners of the eyes (crows’ feet), creases in the forehead, and furrowed brows. The effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic can be expected to last from four to six months. At that time, many patients choose to undergo subsequent injections to continue enjoying these rejuvenating effects.
JUVÉDERM® is dermal filler, and reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles by adding volume to the skin. In this way, it is differentiated from BOTOX® injections, which merely reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Its fundamental ingredient is hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the skin. As we grow older and endure exposure to sunlight, our natural store of hyaluronic acid becomes depleted, making us more susceptible to deep creases, facial lines, and wrinkles. We offer JUVÉDERM® to Springfield patients who would like to add volume to areas that have begun to show prominent signs of aging. It is especially effective in reducing the vertical lines that develop around the mouth, lines that develop along the corners of the mouth (“marionette lines”), and lines that develop on either side of the nose (the nasolabial folds, sometimes called “laugh lines”). As with BOTOX® Cosmetic, the results are not permanent, but you can expect them to last about a year. After this time, the filler absorbs into the body.
If you are interested in rejuvenating your appearance without having to undergo invasive surgery with long recovery times, JUVÉDERM® injections or BOTOX® Cosmetic, available at our Springfield office, may be an excellent solution for you. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.
