Wrinkles may afflict everyone to some extent during aging. However, you may not feel comfortable with the wrinkles on your face. With our cosmetic injections, you can experience relief from these irritating wrinkles and rediscover your smooth, youthful skin without surgery. Here at Urban Allure, we are proud to offer BOTOX® Cosmetic, a purified protein solution, and JUVEDERM® XC, a dermal filler. We will be happy to help you decide which injectable option is the right one for you.
Treatments for Dynamic Lines
We begin with a complete consultation so that we can determine your aesthetic vision and intent. This will help us decide which cosmetic injections are best for you. If you are dealing mainly with expression lines, we may focus on BOTOX® Cosmetic as the most ideal solution. BOTOX® Cosmetic works by blocking nerve signals in the muscles treated. When the nerves can no longer communicate with the muscle, the muscle cannot contract. This prevents your skin from wrinkling over the muscle whenever you make facial expressions. You may need to receive these cosmetic injections about every four months to maintain the best results.
Treatments for Static Wrinkles
Static lines and wrinkles remain in your skin even when your face is at rest. In such cases, you may need to provide more volume to the area by way of a dermal filler such as JUVEDERM® XC. Dermal fillers are a smooth, crystal-clear gel used to fill in deeper wrinkles. They can also be used to make the lips appear larger, smooth out parentheses lines, and lift the cheeks. The chief ingredient in JUVEDERM® XC is hyaluronic acid, a natural substance in the body which attracts moisture. This filler can last from one to two years depending on the type and the location of the treatment.
