Today’s dermal injectables make it possible to forget the face-lift and take years off your face without the risk, expense, or downtime of surgery. Here at Apex Medical Professionals in Fair Lawn, New Jersey, our team of highly skilled internal medicine and aesthetic physicians offer a safer way to reduce the signs of aging with Botox® injections and the Juvéderm® collection of dermal fillers. 

Twenty years ago, a face-lift may have been one of the most effective ways to fight back against the signs of aging, but in recent years, this invasive surgery has relinquished its popularity. Thanks to extensively researched materials and advanced medical technology, you can much more easily and safely tighten your facial skin, smooth out lines and wrinkles, and look more youthful, yet still natural, without undergoing an invasive, surgical procedure. From forehead to chin, we’ve got you covered with cosmetic injectables. 

Botox or Juvéderm: Which one do I need?

Depending on which areas of your face you’d like to enhance, our doctors create a customized plan to address your concerns of lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin — from the top of your forehead to your chin. Botox and Juvéderm work differently and are formulated for specific areas of your face. Your treatment may include one or both types of cosmetic injections, depending on your aesthetic goals. 

Botox is for crow’s feet and forehead lines

Botox is your go-to solution for vertical frown lines between your eyebrows, horizontal wrinkles across your forehead, and crow’s feet at the corners of your eyes. Botox is an FDA-approved injectable derived from a naturally occurring substance called botulinum toxin type A. When Botox is strategically injected into points across your forehead, or at the outer corners of your eyes, the toxin temporarily restricts the underlying muscle movement that causes lines and wrinkles.

Botox is a safe, extensively researched cosmetic injectable, and when you receive it from a skilled physician, there’s minimal downtime, if any, and very little risk of adverse effects. You don’t have to worry about incisions, scarring, or anesthesia like you would with a face-lift. You can even schedule Botox injections during your lunch hour, as most of the time, it takes just about 10 minutes to receive the injections in our office. 

Afterward, you can return to your daily routine without further interruption. You’ll see the results in 24-48 hours, and you’ll still be able to make all your natural facial expressions. You’ll just have fewer noticeable lines and wrinkles around your eyes and across your forehead when you do. 

Juvéderm is for lips, cheeks, and facial lines

Juvéderm is a complete collection of dermal fillers that use hyaluronic acid to lift, add volume, and smooth out lines and wrinkles in the lower portion of your face. Hyaluronic acid a naturally occurring substance that your body produces to lubricate your joints and keep your skin and connective tissue hydrated. 

As you get older, your body produces less hyaluronic acid. Sun exposure, tobacco smoke, and pollution can also deplete the hyaluronic acid in your skin, over the years.

There’s a Juvéderm solution for that

The Juvéderm collection of dermal fillers helps restore volume in sagging or sunken cheeks so your cheeks appear fuller and more lifted as they did when you were younger. With a few simple injections, Juvéderm Voluma® XC adds volume to your face and contours your cheeks for up to two years. 

To soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth, Juvéderm Vollure™ XC works for up to 18 months on these nasolabial folds. And for fuller, plumper lips with less noticeable vertical lip lines, there’s Juvéderm Ultra XC and Juvéderm Volbella® SC. Expect to see results immediately following your dermal filler appointment. 

If your face looks older than you feel, consider cosmetic injectables for simple, minimally-invasive approach solutions with no downtime.
