Do you want to eliminate that angry or sad look on your face?
The answer is Botox® or Jeauveau®. These FDA cleared brands are available at Renew Medical Aesthetics to diminish wrinkles and folds. They have exactly the same ingredient, but they differ only in the proteins that surround that ingredient. They are all very effective with similar longevity.
Botox Cosmetic and Jeauveau are physician dispensed, prescription medications, which, when superficially injected into the face, relax the muscles and soften wrinkles. Botox® Cosmetic was approved to improve the appearance of frown lines in 2002. Since then, it has become the most popular medical cosmetic treatment in the world. Jeauveau was approved for use in 2019.
Although Botox® Cosmetic and Jeauveau® are injectable treatments, Dr. Voica uses the smallest available needle and a superficial technique, for a virtually pain free procedure. There is no "downtime" or prolonged recovery period after this cosmetic treatment, making it a truly "lunch hour" procedure.
Common areas treated with these medications include the frown lines, between the brows, which are responsible for the "angry" look; forehead wrinkles and peri-occular lines, or "crow's feet". Using more advanced techniques, this cosmetic treatment can be used to counteract the downturn of mouth's corners, or upper lip "smoker's" lines. It can be injected into the neck area to relax the muscle bands and smooth out folds for a more rejuvenated appearance.
Most people wait too long, when fine lines and wrinkles are prominent, before starting Botox® treatments. For best results, injections should be started in mid 30's to prevent wrinkle formation.
Results become noticeable within 3 - 5 days, with a maximum effect at 2 weeks and they last for 3-4 months, before the effect gradually fades and muscle action returns.
