Botox is a non-surgical treatment to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It works by reducing muscle contraction, which lends a smoother aesthetic. Botox is the only FDA-approved injectable that treats moderate to severe crow’s feet and fine lines between the eyebrows. This treatment is temporary and requires follow up injections to maintain results.
Fine lines and wrinkles aren’t the only signs of aging. Loss of volume in the lips and cheeks is a common complaint of those striving to maintain a youthful aesthetic. Juvéderm is a great remedy for increasing lost volume due to aging. It’s also a popular treatment for those seeking fuller lips and cheeks regardless of age.
Juvéderm provides instant yet natural-looking results. This is accomplished by injecting a hyaluronic acid-based (a natural compound) filler just beneath the skin.
Kybella (deoxycholic acid)
Kybella is a popular injectable that treats fat deposits beneath one’s chin. By injecting an acid that dissolves fat cells, your oral surgeon can improve the appearance of a “double chin”. Male and female adults may struggle with excess fat in the lower part of their face due to weight gain, genetics, and the aging process. Kybella is a great alternative to surgical procedures for a thinner, more youthful appearance.
