How We Use Injectables
Botox® is a medication that uses a form of botulinum toxin (a purified substance developed from bacteria) to temporarily paralyze muscle activity. It’s one of the quickest and safest ways to improve wrinkles. It can be combined with other cosmetic procedures like fillers or chemical peels to improve your results.
Jeuveau® is an FDA-approved prescription medicine that can be injected into facial muscles to treat moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines). It’s often called “newtox” because of its similarities to Botox®.
Juvéderm® is a dermal filler. It’s used mainly on the cheeks, lips and around the mouth.
