Botox & Juvederm
Junith M. Thompson, M.D. SC
Botox relaxes facial muscles to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Common treatment areas are worry-lines (between the eyebrows), crow’s feet (lines around the eyes), and horizontal lines across your forehead. Our advanced injectors can also inject the lower face to prevent aging effects around the mouth and neck. Botox can also be used to temporarily treat migraines and block the secretion of the different chemicals that activate our sweat glands, therefore stopping sweating in the area it is injected in. Treatment can last up to 14 months but typically lasts 4 to 12 months, depending on severity. Not sure if Botox is for you?

Juvederm Dermal fillers provide a smooth, long-lasting correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It is also used for lip procedures; it can enhance lip size, shape, and border. Juvederm is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that is made of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that is used often due to its volumizing properties. It is known to hold up to 1,000 times its volume in water!
