To reduce the effects of aging caused by everything you do in life—smiling, squinting, frowning, chewing—Dr. Jaramillo Plastic Surgery provides trusted injectable treatments in Central Florida. With Botox® and the dermal filler Juvéderm®, Dr. Jaramillo can rejuvenate your appearance, smoothing away fine lines and wrinkles and plumping up your contours for a more youthful appearance.
Botox in Central Florida can help improve:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead creases and furrows
- Neck bands
Juvéderm in Central Florida can:
- Plump up lips
- Fill shallow contours
- Relax facial creases and wrinkles
- Diminish scars
Botox and Juvéderm can be used to minimize the effects of aging, but they work in different ways. To diminish wrinkles, Botox relaxes nerve signals to facial muscles. Juvéderm instead adds volume to the face with a gel filled with hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance in the body that adds moisture to the skin.
Both Botox and Juvéderm require a quick in-office visit which can last 15 minutes to an hour, depending on your specific needs.
For both treatments, you can resume your normal activities immediately.
The most common side effects for both Botox and Juvéderm include redness and bruising, which are temporary and should dissipate shortly after treatment.
Results from Botox can take a week to fully develop, and can last for up to four months. Juvéderm results begin to show immediately, but may not fully develop until swelling dissipates, and can last for up to a year.
Botox and Juvéderm can be combined to produce a more youthful appearance.
Botox and Juvéderm do not require anesthesia, though a topical ointment may be applied prior to injection to ensure your comfort. Juvéderm contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to increase your comfort during treatment.
The best way to get started on your path toward a more youthful appearance is a consultation with Dr. Jaramillo. Call us at TK number, or use our online contact form to schedule an appointment.
