Are your anti-aging creams not living up to their promise, but you still want to minimize the signs of aging without invasive surgery? In your initial consultation with Dr. Allen A. Flood, tell him about the changes you want to see in your mirror and he will show you how injectables like Botox or a filler like Juvéderm® could be right for you.
Botox works best at getting rid of crow’s feet and vertical wrinkle lines between the eyebrows. In your consultation with Dr. Flood he can treat these areas with Botox and see if there are other areas where Botox can help make you happier with your complexion.
Sorry, but the answer is no. We can say that most people who get Botox feel just a slight pinch, but Dr. Flood will consider your concerns about needles and pain, and the possibility of using local anesthesia for your procedure.
Results with Botox are usually noticeable within 24-48 hours but some recipients experience a wait of up to a week for the motor muscles to react to the injection. Botox isn’t permanent, but it can eliminate your crow’s feet and frown lines for up to 4 months.
Botox is not a filler. Botox injections stop the muscle contractions that cause crow’s feet at the outer corners of your eyes and frown lines between your eyebrows. Juvéderm has different fillers for different needs. Made from a natural substance found in the skin, hyaluronic acid (HA), Juvéderm helps improve your skin by adding volume while retaining its natural moisture and softness. For patients concerned with discomfort, Dr. Flood will remind them that their discomfort is minimized by the lidocaine contained in Juvéderm gels. Juvéderm cosmetic improvements make their collection of fillers the best selling injectables in the United States. With different gels to benefit different parts of the face, Juvéderm injectables are safe, natural looking and long lasting. Call or schedule an appointment online with Dr. Flood if you’re interested in Botox or fillers.
