What is Botox?
Botox is a minimally invasive injectable skin rejuvenation treatment. Botox is used to temporarily soften and smooth away facial expression lines, most commonly known as frown lines or crow’s feet. These types of lines are created by the repeated action of very specific facial muscles and the lines become more apparent over time. These muscles are easily identified and their movements can be minimized with the application of a Botox injection. You can trust Dr. George Allen and his team at Nu U Laser Centers to provide fresh and natural looking results, erasing lines and wrinkles, making you look years younger.
In addition to filling facial lines, JUVEDERM stimulates collagen and fibroblasts in the dermis to help the skin regenerate itself, restoring smoother, healthier skin that contours naturally. JUVEDERM is an FDA-approved advanced dermal filler that is composed of cross-linked hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body.
How does Botox and Fillers work?
These treatments act as a relaxing agent to keep the facial muscles in place that would normally contract due to repeated muscle movement. By “freezing” the muscles, the formation of worry lines, wrinkles, and crow’s feet on the face is drastically reduced, leading to a smoother, firmer appearance. During your consultation, Dr. George Allen he will help you decide whether Botox or JUVEDERM, is the right choice for achieving your facial goals. Both treatments work by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkling, creating the skin to have a more youthful and fresher appearance.
