Botox® and Cosmetic Fillers
As you age, your skin volume decreases and your face develops wrinkles and folds. Botox® is a neuromodulator, which are injected into the muscle to weaken the ability to move the muscle and thus prevent wrinkles. Cosmetic facial fillers such as Juvéderm®, and Restylane® are safely injected into the soft tissue of the face to create the appearance of smother, younger skin.
Orange Park’s Refine Medical Spa offers Botox injections as well as Juvéderm facial fillers, which are appropriate for most skin types and tones. Call our Fleming Island, Florida medspa at (904) 541-3055 to schedule your consultation for beautiful, youthful skin solutions.
Neuromodulators such as Botox erase wrinkles, creases, and fine lines that gradually appear over time.
With a few simple injections, you can look years younger through the magic of neuromodulators. Botox injections erase the wrinkles, creases, and fine lines that gradually appear over time.
Underneath your skin, your facial muscles contract with emotional expression, which causes the overlying skin to wrinkle. Through the years, those expression lines start to linger longer and can become more pronounced. Neuromodulator injections work by reducing the contractions of the muscles that cause those persistent frown lines and crow’s feet.
After treatment, most will see results within a few days. Your skin will remain smooth and unwrinkled for up to four months. Botox injections can be combined with other cosmetic procedures, such as facial fillers, for further skin enhancement.
To ensure optimal results, this popular and convenient procedure is performed by highly trained medical professionals, including surgeons. Neuromodulator injections only take a few minutes and there is no downtime necessary, so you can get back to your normal activities immediately following your treatment.
Dermal Fillers: Juvéderm | Restylane
Juvéderm, and Restylane are dermal fillers that can be injected into the skin to soften creases or folds, support areas of volume loss or contour specific facial areas. Your nurse practitioner will identify the most appropriate filler for concern and desired effect.
For example, Juvéderm and Restylane are injectable gels made from hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body that helps maintain skin volume and hydration. These injectable gels create a fuller, more youthful appearance by plumping the skin or lips to add volume.
Injecting dermal fillers is a safe, in-office procedure that takes about 30 minutes and has a minimal recovery period. You will see immediate, natural-looking results that can last 6 to 9 months and often up to a year, depending on the type of dermal filler used and the area treated.
