Botox

BOTOX® is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines in adults.

Cosmetic injectables are becoming a popular addition to the beauty routine for both women and men.

With injectables, you will enhance your natural look for a fraction of what a traditional facelift costs, with minimal discomfort and no surgery or downtime. BU Wellness has the most qualified staff to consult and provide the proper treatment just for you.

WHAT IS BOTOX ?

A well-studied treatment

BOTOX® is one of the most extensively studied medical aesthetic treatments and is approved for cosmetic use in 78 countries.* BOTOX® Cosmetic has a record of experience that aesthetic specialists know and trust. And, the safety and efficacy of BOTOX Cosmetic have been evaluated in both Allergan sponsored clinical trials as well as in 417 peer-reviewed articles in scientific and medical journals.

Derived from sources that exist in nature 

BOTOX® Cosmetic contains tiny amounts of a highly purified botulinum toxin protein refined from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum. Formulations, potency, and approved doses vary among botulinum toxin products, which means that one product cannot take the place of another. Those are a few reasons why there is no such thing as a “generic” form of BOTOX® Cosmetic. There have been no studies to support that other products are Unit-to-Unit equivalent to BOTOX® Cosmetic.

A treatment experienced by millions of people

Approximately 10.9 million vials of BOTOX® Cosmetic have been sold in the United States since 2002, and millions of people have already made BOTOX® Cosmetic a part of what they do for themselves. Today, BOTOX® Cosmetic is the #1 selling product of its kind in the world.†

HOW DOES BOTOX WORK?

BOTOX® is one of the most extensively studied medical aesthetic treatments and is approved for cosmetic use in 78 countries.* BOTOX® has a record of experience that aesthetic specialists know and trust.

Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes that can occur over time, reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals in the sun and the environment. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. And when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow’s feet.

BOTOX® works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet.

For the crow’s feet area,

your specialist will inject 3 areas of the orbicularis oculi, the muscle that frames the side of the eye. This will be repeated on the orbicularis oculi muscle on the other eye.

Injecting BOTOX® into the muscles that cause crow’s feet lines temporarily reduces the activity of those muscles. The result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines.

For the frown lines area,

your specialist will administer 5 injections into muscles in your forehead—1 in the procerus muscle and 4 in the corrugator muscles.

Injecting BOTOX® into the muscles that cause frown lines temporarily reduces the activity of those muscles. The result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines.

 

Dysport

Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA) for injection is an acetylcholine release inhibitor and neuromuscular blocking agent indicated for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines associated with procerus and corrugator muscle activity in adult patients less than 65 years of age.

Dysport Clinical Study Results

Meaningful efficacy that’s rapid and enduring

More than half of subjects saw improvement in as little as 2-3 days after treatment and results may last up to 4 months.

FACIAL SCULPTING WITH FILLERS

 

Dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face.

As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow’s feet become more apparent.

The facial skin also stretches a bit, adding to this loss of facial volume. Other factors that affect the facial skin include sun exposure, heredity, and lifestyle.

 

Dermal fillers can be used to:

• Plump thin lips

• Enhance shallow contours

• Soften facial creases and wrinkles

• Improve the appearance of recessed scars

 

Dermal fillers can be very helpful in those with early signs of aging, or as a value-added part of facial rejuvenation surgery.

 

You may be a good candidate for dermal fillers if you:

• Are physically healthy

• Don’t smoke

• Have a positive outlook and realistic goals in mind for the improvement of your appearance

 

For some patients, surgery such as a facelift, brow lift, or eye lift may be the best approach.

There are several different types of dermal fillers.

 

• Hyaluronic acid -- Restylane, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Silk, Restylane Refyne, Restylane Defyne, Juvederm ultra, Voluma

• Poly-L-lactic acid -- Sculptra

• Calcium hydroxyapatite -- Radiesse

• Polymethylmethacrylate -- Bellafill

 

Dermal fillers differ in chemical make-up, longevity, and have varying degrees of softness. Softer fillers are used in the lips, for example, while sturdier fillers might be desired to enhance cheekbones.

 

Dr. Kim will determine with you the best type and volume of filler needed for your particular areas of concern.

For many people, the use of these fillers can be a simple office-based procedure that can nicely enhance their appearance. These dermal fillers are very predictable, and have relatively minimal risks and side effects.

 

Lip Enhancement

Have years of sun exposure, smoking, lifestyle and genetics caused your lips to lose their shape, fullness and vitality? As we age, they become thinner, the upper lip begins to droop and we develop fine lines on and around the lips. If you’re unhappy with your lips, lip augmentation can correct and enhance them using non-surgical methods that are minimally invasive. If the Chinese Proverb, “Every smile makes you a day younger” is true, then what are you waiting for?

Bellafill Features & Benefits

Bellafill’s tiny, polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres are suspended within a base of smooth collagen gel. Once injected, the collagen gel immediately reduces the look of smile lines. Over time, your body uses the microspheres in Bellafill to create a “scaffold” onto which your own natural collagen can develop. This collagen forms a foundation that adds volume to wrinkles, reducing their appearance – and giving you natural-looking results that feel soft and smooth for up to 5 years.
