Even when you take excellent care of your skin, aging and sun damage eventually take their toll. Where you once had voluminous, full cheeks, they now have a sunken appearance. You seem to notice more fine lines and wrinkles around on your forehead and near your eyes every day. Even your lips appear less full. It’s true that aging is inevitable, but that doesn't mean you must passively accept these changes. At White Lotus Medical Spa, we offer several types of injectables, including Botox and Juvéderm, which offer quick results after a simple outpatient procedure.
Juvéderm® Facial Fillers
Juvéderm is an ideal treatment method to treat smile lines, chin wrinkles, hollow eyes, thinning lips, and overall loss of volume in the face. When it comes to your body, you may consider plumpness a negative thing. However, a loss of plumpness in the face causes an aged and sunken appearance that you may not find attractive. This injectable smoothens fine lines and wrinkles to give you a youthful and more energetic appearance.
The primary ingredient in Juvéderm
is hydraulic acid. This is a naturally occurring substance in every living mammal. It improves hydration and increases volume. You will receive an injection with a small needle containing hydraulic acid. The solution also includes lidocaine, an ingredient that helps to reduce swelling and discomfort. Upon injection, the solution travels to your epidermis and connective tissue where wrinkles and other aging issues originate.
We offer several different types of Juvéderm injectables, including the following:
- Ultra XC
- Ultra Plus XC
Botox temporarily paralyzes the facial muscles to halt the obvious signs of aging. It’s an excellent treatment for crow’s feet as well as fine lines, frown lines, forehead lines and worry lines. Your muscles receive a signal after a Botox injection that prevents them from contracting. Contrary to popular belief, it doesn’t affect your ability to smile or cause your face to freeze in a set position.
Patients often describe the brief sting of a Botox injection as similar to an insect bite. It’s normal to experience soreness and redness at the site of the injection for up to several hours after the procedure. You will likely notice results from the procedure within a few days and others will compliment your renewed appearance within about a week.
The Allergan Family of Injectables
In addition to Juvéderm and Botox, we are pleased to offer Kybella® at White Lotus Medical Spa. This simple outpatient procedure eliminates excess chin fat, so you don’t feel self-conscious about a double chin when you smile.
