Botox® & Fillers
Aging is an inevitable part of life, and unfortunately, so are the signs of aging. Over time, the creasing in our skin becomes more profound and defined. Our skin also loses its ability to regenerate quickly and may become hollowed out or saggy. With significant advancements in medicine occurring rapidly, we at Laser MD Medspa offer all of the latest minimally-invasive anti-aging treatments needed to fight back and preserve your youthful appearance. With injectable relaxers like BOTOX® and injectable dermal fillers like Juvéderm®, you can customize the perfect treatment to fit your individual cosmetic goals.
BOTOX® is purified from a naturally occurring toxin, botulinum toxin, and it works as a neuromuscular inhibitor for targeted muscles in the face. This purified toxin minimizes and prevents fine lines and wrinkles, particularly around the brow and forehead. A specialist at our medical spa injects the Botox solution into the desired area of the face, which then relaxes the over-articulation of the muscles responsible for wrinkling.
In addition, BOTOX® is used to dramatically reduce hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, typically under the arms.
Types Of Dermal Fillers
Like BOTOX®, dermal fillers are also injectable cosmetic treatments used to reduce the signs of facial aging. The difference between the two is how they function.
While BOTOX® blocks signals to the muscles, dermal fillers like Juvéderm VOLBELLA, Juvéderm ULTRA, Juvéderm ULTRA PLUS, Juvéderm VOLLURE, and Juvéderm VOLUMA XC:
- Add volume and hydration to hollowed areas of the face
- Promote the production of collagen
- Reduce and prevent wrinkling
- Add a smoother and more youthful element to your look
Juvéderm is a popular family of dermal fillers composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural yet potent hydration filler used to add volume and smoothness to the face. Though fillers all share a similar function, each has its distinct strengths and weaknesses. Hyaluronic acid fillers like these are generally most effective around the mouth, nose, and forehead.
Botox and Filler Costs
BOTOX® is typically priced by the unit, while Juvedérm is priced by the syringe. Learn more below about each treatment and its cost expectations, or schedule your free consultation today to discuss treatment options with our experienced professionals.
