Botox treatments can help adjust your lip shape, sculpt your smile, and smooth wrinkles around your mouth. To complete cosmetic adjustments to your smile, you might consider adding these increasingly popular procedures to your treatment plan.
Botox is the common name for botulinum toxin, a protein that can be injected into the facial muscles. Botox doesn’t affect the muscles themselves—it blocks the transmitters between the nerves that move the muscles so that the muscles can’t contract. This stops the motion that causes wrinkles. Three to ten days after the treatment, the skin that surrounds these muscles smooths itself out.
Hyaluronic acid, or HA, is a natural substance in the body the delivers volume to the skin. Modified HA is the main ingredient behind JUVEDERM. Getting treated with JUVEDERM helps add volume to different areas of the face without surgery while also temporarily restoring the volume loss beneath the surface.
