Juvederm and Botox
(Botox: $10/unit, Dermal Fillers $399/syringe)
Every year, botox proves to be the most common cosmetic procedure in the United States which isn’t shocking being that this simple, non-surgical treatment will temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brow and wrinkles around the eyes. Botox Cosmetic is the trade name of Botulinum Toxin Type A.
This purified protein blocks the nerve impulses to muscles causing them to refrain from contracting. Botox injections are given in extremely small doses by a licensed physician and are injected directly into the specific muscles that lead to frown lines. These isolated muscles are treated and can no longer contract
Botox is the only treatment of its type that is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Allegran, the manufacturer of BOTOX, claims that over one million people worldwide have been treated with the injectable since the drug’s FDA approval in 1989.
Botox is very affordable, proving to be one of the least expensive facial aesthetic procedures. In fact, Botox ranks 7th out of the 9 most widely used skin care procedures in the country.
SHAPE Med recently received Black Diamond level provider status from Allergan, the maker of BOTOX® Cosmetic, recognizing the extensive experience Dr. Mark McKenna and his qualified medical staff have achieved. Only 1% of practices nationwide are afforded the Black Diamond distinction.
Areas for Usage
The procedure has been shown to diminish frown lines, soften and reduce crows feet, and dramatically improve the appearance of wrinkles. Our highly trained botox specialists can even reduce the appearance of some lines that are caused by other hyper functional facial muscles such as nose creases, chin dimples, neck lines and neck bands. Other FDA approved usage for the botox injections aid in combating excessive sweating that occurs in the hands, feet and armpits.
What to Expect
The Botox injections administered usually take approximately 10 to 15 minutes to perform. The patient may experience slight pain, although most say that the discomfort is tolerable. After the procedure, there may be minor bruising at the site of the injections or other local side effects. It’s important to not rub or massage the treated areas. You should expect to resume your normal, daily activity immediately following the procedure.
