What Can I Expect From Botox And Juvederm Treatments?

Remember that old saying: “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”? Well, if the ‘beholder’ happens to be you every time you pass by a mirror, maybe you’re not particularly pleased with your current appearance. Thanks to medical technology there are ways to turn back the clock.

Years ago, we had to age gracefully. Those lines and deep wrinkles were part of becoming mature, we were told. It’s 2017, and times have changed!

Benefits Of Juvederm Treatments

With the FDA approval of Juvederm in 2006, women and men were suddenly able to fight back. Aging causes wrinkles and folds in our skin, and we lose that elasticity and fullness we had in our youth. Juvederm fills in the lost volume in our face, softening those marionette lines that run from our nose to the corner of our mouth. It is subtle but transforming.

In addition, Juvederm can contour your cheeks and improve your lips by adding some fullness and erasing lip lines.

Juvederm is an injectable gel made of hyaluronic acid found naturally in our bodies. This provides natural results that are both long lasting and safe. Some other benefits include:

  • It is a non-invasive treatment.
  • It is a 15-minute process.
  • You will see immediate and long-lasting results.
  • There are minimal side effects.

If aging gracefully is not in your vocabulary, maybe Juvederm is for you.


Botox Cosmetic Injection Treatment has been helping men and women improve their appearance for some time. Botox Cosmetic is different from Botox, which treats medical issues like Blepharospasm.

Botox Cosmetic blocks nerve impulses to facial muscles, relaxing the skin. It is primarily used to treat and smooth the moderate to severe vertical lines between the eyebrows, wrinkles on the forehead, and softening “crow’s feet” near the eyes. You must be 18 years of age to have Botox Cosmetic.

You can expect:

The benefits to appear within three to five days.

The results normally last about four months.

A local anesthetic is applied to the skin prior to injection.

The treatment takes approximately 10 minutes.

Immediate recovery time, so you can come on your lunch hour.

Speak with the Botox Cosmetic specialists at South Texas Eye Institute about any side effects and whether you are a good candidate for this treatment.

Fifty is the new 30, so we’ve heard. You don’t have to live with wrinkles, creases and crow’s feet. Time to enjoy looking in the mirror again.
