Millions of people have been treated with the FDA-approved BOTOX Cosmetic injection since it was first approved in 2002. It is a non-surgical treatment that people use for a variety of reasons, the main being to smooth out lines and winkles in various parts of the face. BOTOX Cosmetic is currently the only treatment of this type that is approved by the FDA and can be done in office, in about 10 minutes, with small amounts of the formula being injected into the problem areas. The effects of the injection are not permanent, and results can vary, but they usually last anywhere between 3 to 5 months.
BOTOX Cosmetic is made up of a purified protein, which is produced by a bacteria called Clostridium botulinum. This substance is what makes the BOTOX treatment work, as it minimizes the amount of activity in the muscles that are responsible for creating frown lines and wrinkles.
Fillers, including Juvederm™, Radiesse® and Restylane®
Another popular form of injectable treatment includes a number of dermal fillers, such as Juvederm™, Radiesse® and Restylane®.
As the skin ages, it begins to lose the things--collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid--that keep it looking young and youthful. Dermal fillers have become increasingly popular because they help to replace the loss of these aspects of the skin, keeping the skin looking and feeling healthy, young, and firm. These fillers are also popular because the results the provide are much more natural than surgical options.
As mentioned before, there are a number of different dermal fillers available in the United States, and North Idaho Dermatology offers some of the top ones: Juvederm™, Radiesse® and Restylane®.
