What Is Botox?

Botox is essentially a drug that is made from Botulinum, a type of bacterium. Doctors around the world use this drug for treating a variety of different health conditions, including:

  • Temporary treatment of wrinkles on the face for improved appearance
  • Uncontrollable blinking, or blepharospasm
  • Excessive underarm sweating

Botox injections are helpful in paralyzing muscles and blocking specific nerves in the face. The effects of the treatment are known to provide effective facial rejuvenation for approximately three to four months.

What Is Juvéderm?

Juvéderm is a dermal filler used to help restore facial features to address signs of aging. Juvéderm has hyaluronic acid as its base. The treatment focuses on improving the appearance of the lips, cheeks, and the areas around the nose and mouth.

While both Botox and Juvéderm are used for treating wrinkles, the procedures are quite different. Juvéderm focuses on plumping of the skin, whereas Botox will relax your facial muscles temporarily. Dr. Balikian will suggest the appropriate procedure for you after analyzing your specific case and aesthetic goals.

What Is Sculptra?

An injectable approved by the FDA, Sculptra helps gradually replace lost collagen – a key cause of natural facial aging – and offers results that can last for a few years. It is used by Dr. Balikian primarily to correct moderate to deep facial folds and wrinkles.

Sculptra stimulates collagen growth to restore facial volume, making the patient look more youthful over a period of time. Its results look very natural as a result of this.

What Is Restylane?

Restylane is also a type of dermal filler approved by the FDA and is made of hyaluronic acid (non-animal and biodegradable). Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in every living organism and helps provide fullness and volume to your skin. This is exactly what the Restylane treatment is used for.

It is proven to correct facial folds and wrinkles of varying degrees in areas such as mouth corners and the nose. In some cases, Restylane is also used for enhancing the lip shape (in patients 21 years of age or older).
