Botox

What is Botox and how does it work?

Botox is a patented and FDA-approved treatment that temporarily reduces the appearance of forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines. The treatment smooths lines and folds that range from moderate to severe.

Botox is formulated from Clostridium botulinum, a substance found naturally in forests and lakes. In larger concentrations, this substance is toxic, but the volume used in cosmetic and medical applications is minute and perfectly safe.

In fact, Botox is the subject of more than 495 peer-reviewed articles and has a history of more than 15 years of clinical studies. The safety and efficacy of Botox is well-established, giving you the peace of mind that treatments won’t interfere with your health and wellness.

Botox works by temporarily impeding the ability of the targeted muscles to go through their full range of motion. That means those muscles won’t pull and tug your skin into lines and folds. Botox is administered via several injections using a very small needle.

Results last around four months. As your wrinkles and folds gradually reappear, you can decide if you’d like to come in for additional treatments to extend the results.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable substances that restore lost facial volume. Most are formulated with hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in your skin. The synthetic version is in a gel-like form, and there are several available brands and formulations.

Some of the products Dr. Brennan offers include Juvederm Voluma and Restylane. Each offers multiple formulations for use in various areas of your face. Dermal fillers can enhance volume in the following areas:

  • Nasolabial folds, which run from the sides of your nose to the corners of your mouth
  • Lost volume in your cheeks
  • Lines around your lips
  • Crow’s feet
  • Marionette lines, which run from the sides of your mouth down to your chin
  • Lip enhancement

 

There are even dermal fillers that plump and smooth the tops of your hands. Dr. Brennan explains the products best suited for your specific needs during your personalized consultation.

What is a liquid face-lift?

A liquid face-lift is a term used to describe a combination of Botox and dermal fillers administered during the same appointment. Dr. Brennan has extensive experience with these products and examines your face to determine which products will yield optimal results, where injections should be performed, and the exact amount of product to deliver.

A liquid face-lift is a great option for men and women who want to combat the visual signs of aging, but who aren’t ready to pursue a face-lift or other invasive procedures. Even better, the results of Botox and dermal fillers are temporary, giving you the ability to experience various combinations and tailor future treatments to meet your personal aesthetic goals.
