Age, weight, health, and area being treated will all affect how long Botox will last.  Initial treatments of Botox wear off faster with deep wrinkles and strong muscles. With repeated treatments, results typically last longer.

What are contraindications of Botox?

Botox injections are relatively safe when administered by our trained doctors.

Do not take Botox treatments if you have, or have had any of the following:

  • an allergic reaction to any of the ingredients in Botox
  • skin infection at desired injection site
  • any disease that affects muscles or nerves
  • asthma/ breathing problems
  • bleeding problems
  • pregnant
  • breast feeding

Will Botox remove deep wrinkles?

Actually, for deep wrinkles, we recommend and use Juvederm, which provide instant, natural looking results.

What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is a facial filler made from hyaluronic acid (HA)- a naturally occurring sugar found in your skin.  It combines with water in your skin to instantly restore lost volume, smooth out lines and wrinkles and enhance lips.

How long does Juvederm last?

Typically, the results from Juvederm treatments last 9-12 months.  Of course, results vary with each individual

What are the contraindications for Juvederm?

Juvederm should not be used in patients with allergies associated with anaphalaxis, patients with a history of gram-positive bacterial proteins, or patients with an allergic reaction to lidocaine.
