Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is the world’s leading nonsurgical cosmetic treatment for temporarily reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles, lines, and folds. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, more than 7 million Botox procedures were performed in 2017 alone.

Botox temporarily reduces the ability of targeted facial muscles to go through their full range of motion. That prevents those muscles from pulling and tugging your skin into lines, folds, and wrinkles. Botox is approved for use in crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines, those parentheses-shaped lines between your brows.

Botox is formulated from a powerful toxin that is deadly in higher concentrations. The volume used in cosmetic applications is perfectly safe, however, and is backed by years of clinical trials and studies. You can feel comfortable giving Botox a try, and rest assured that the specialists at Coeur OBGYN have the training and expertise needed to leverage this tool to its greatest advantage.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable substances that work to replace lost facial volume or enhance contouring throughout your face. Many are made from hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in your skin.

The team at Coeur OBGYN offers fillers from the Juvederm family, as well as several other options. There are different formulations for various areas of your face. Some of the issues dermal fillers improve include:

  • Lost volume in the cheeks
  • Nasolabial folds, which run from the sides of your nose to the corners of your mouth
  • Marionette lines, which run from the corners of your mouth to your chin
  • Plump depressed acne scars
  • Decrease or eliminate shadowing under your lower eyelids

Certain fillers also enhance your lip volume and smooth vertical lip lines.

What is a liquid facelift?

The term “liquid facelift” is used to describe a combination approach using Botox and dermal fillers to create optimal facial volume and contouring. The skilled specialists at Coeur OBGYN evaluate your facial features and create a customized treatment plan to smooth lines and wrinkles, enhance your contouring, and restore lost facial volume.

A liquid facelift is a great option for women who want to reduce the signs of aging, but aren’t ready for invasive surgical procedures. Under the right care, Botox and dermal fillers achieve impressive results and slow the signs of aging.
