Botox is a purified form of botulinum toxin that’s used for medical and cosmetic treatments. After Botox is injected into a muscle, it blocks the nerve signals that make muscles contract. As a result, the targeted muscles relax and the wrinkles caused by those muscles are diminished or eliminated.
As you get older, you develop two types of facial wrinkles: static and dynamic. Static wrinkles result from age-related changes that affect everyone, like volume loss, dehydration, thinning skin, and reduced collagen production.
Dynamic wrinkles are caused by the muscles repeatedly used to make facial expressions. Since Botox directly affects muscle movement, it treats dynamic wrinkles such as:
You’ll see the results in 24-48 hours after your injection.* Results last up to four months, then you can get another Botox injection to maintain your new appearance.
Dermal fillers are injected just underneath your skin, where they fill in and soften the appearance of static wrinkles and add volume and lift in areas like your cheeks.
The team at Become MedSpa offers Juvéderm®, which is a family of dermal fillers made from hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced in your skin, where it hydrates and provides volume.
Each Juvéderm product targets a different cosmetic problem, such as:
Some Juvéderm products lift your cheeks, restore cheek volume, and plump up your lips. Your results last one to two years, depending on the product used.*
Kybella is specially formulated to eliminate a double chin. Unlike other injectables, it produces permanent results. Kybella is made from deoxycholic acid, which is normally found in your body, where it breaks down dietary fats.
When deoxycholic is injected into areas of unwanted fat under your chin, it does the same job. First, it destroys the fat cells. Then over the next few weeks, your body clears away the waste.
Kybella treatment consists of multiple injections that are close together so that all of the fat in the targeted area is treated.
