Botox is one of the most popular and safest cosmetic procedures. It minimizes wrinkles and lines from the forehead, glabella (between the eyebrows), and crow’s feet (lines around the eyes). It has also been used for underarm sweating, smoker’s lip lines and migraine headaches. Improvement is seen in four days with effects lasting three to four months.
BOTOX® Cosmetic contains tiny amounts of a highly purified botulinum toxin protein refined from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum. Formulations, potency, and approved doses vary among botulinum toxin products, which means that one product cannot take the place of another. Those are a few reasons why there is no such thing as a “generic” form of BOTOX® Cosmetic. There have been no studies to support that other products are Unit-to-Unit equivalent to BOTOX® Cosmetic.
Approximately 10.9 million vials of BOTOX® Cosmetic have been sold in the United States since 2002, and millions of people have already made BOTOX® Cosmetic a part of what they do for themselves. Today, BOTOX® Cosmetic is the #1 selling product of its kind in the world.
CORRECT AGE-RELATED VOLUME LOSS IN THE CHEEKS FOR UP TO TWO YEARS WITH JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
FILL YOURSELF WITH SELF-CONFIDENCE
What makes for youthful, healthy-looking skin? A smooth texture and radiant tone just scratch the surface. It may not be as emphasized as the other signs of aging, but volume is another major characteristic of a beautiful face – and it makes a world of difference in the appearance of your skin. Too little volume in the cheek area can make the face look sunken and exaggerate the look of fine lines. On the other hand, a surplus of volume can cause the skin to look swollen and unnatural.
Fortunately, there’s a treatment that can help restore your skin’s youthful plumpness and give you beautiful, natural-looking results. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the first and only FDA-approved injectable gel that gives your skin just enough volume to contour your face and subtract years from your appearance.
Juvéderm VOLUMA® XC is different from other gel-like injectables. First, it’s used specifically in the cheek area to make them appear more plump and youthful. Juvéderm® Ultra XC and Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC are similar injectables that focus more on deep lines specifically around the nose and mouth and are used to target laugh lines and thin lips.
Juvéderm Volbella, a dermal filler from the Juvéderm family of products by Allergan, a leader in the world of aesthetic injectables, is one of the latest injectable lip augmentation solutions to be approved by the FDA. Made available for use in the U.S. in October 2016, Juvéderm Volbella is transforming the way in which we enhance our lips. This specially formulated dermal filler is designed to add fullness to the lips, improve lip symmetry, and reduce the signs of aging around the mouth.
Thanks to its smooth gel-like consistency, Juvéderm Volbella can also effectively contour the lips to transform their shape and overall appearance. Featuring a proprietary form of hyaluronic acid, a sugar that occurs naturally in the body, Juvéderm Volbella also utilizes Allergan’s proprietary Vycross technology for enhanced longevity and more natural results. A versatile and effective injectable, this filler also contains a small amount of lidocaine to minimize the minor discomforts sometimes associated with treatment.
Juvéderm Volbella can:
- Add fullness and plumpness to the lips
- Produce results that last for up to a year
- Provide gentle contouring for the correction of lip asymmetry
- Soften the appearance of fine lines that often appear around the mouth as we age
- Produce natural-looking results that are so subtle that no one needs to know that you had the procedure in the first place
As fillers improve, you get to expect a longer correction and smoother correction. The patented Vycross® technology blends different molecule weights to achieve a particularly smooth result. Vycross cross-linking makes the fillers more malleable and easier to inject, further improving the outcome.
The fact that Vollure lasts so long makes it very appealing to those who want to “fill it and forget it”. Clinical study results of 18 months are based on optimal correction. Results may vary.
Vollure for moderate to severe lines in the mid face:
- Laugh Lines (Parentheses lines)
- Marionette Lines
- Horizontal Chin Lines
Parentheses lines are static lines that appear around your nose and mouth when your face is at rest. This happens over time as your skin loses some of the building blocks (hyaluronic acid and collagen) that give the skin its structure.
