JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC‎- Innovative New Dermal Filler That Fills the VOID!

Back in the 1980’s when face lift surgeries became popular, the philosophy was ‘the tighter, the better’. Over time, we realized that this was, in fact, not where the emphasis should be. As we age, our faces naturally lose volume and with the simultaneous halt in the production of collagen, our faces begin to sag. Jowls form, our eyes appear more hollow, and our cheeks deflate.

The Art of Botox®

These days, it seems like we see a new “Botox Clinic” pop up at every corner, akin to the Starbucks explosion in the 1990’s. But, unlike Starbucks, you can’t walk in to any one of these clinics and expect to receive the same service and the same great tasting latte. Unlike your grande iced no whip mocha Frappuccino which pretty much looks and tastes the same wherever you go (and is served with a smile), the art of Botox delivery can vary widely from one office to another.

Get Holiday Ready: Botox and Juvederm Ultra Plus to Freshen Your Skin Tone

Everyone wants to look their best during the holidays. The stress of planning holiday activities on top of other responsibilities may leave you feeling tired and looking older. Wanting to look youthful and glowing during this season has many turning to Botox and Fillers injections to get the look that they desire. Here are the basics that you need to know about each procedure and when you should schedule your appointment.


What you need to know about Botox

 Botox is an injectable protein that relax the muscles underneath the skin, which causes the wrinkles to smooth out as well as prevent the formation of new ones during the length of the treatment. Most people who get Botox injections use it to diminish the look of lines and wrinkles in the forehead, around the eyes, which are often known to be problem areas for most people. Botox lasts about 3 months after the initial injection meaning that it can be scheduled long before the big day. Muscles treated with Botox will lose the ability to move from several hours to a few days after the treatment, so keep this in mind when scheduling an appointment. The last thing wanted in wedding photos is a bride that looks bored and unhappy. Due to this effect, plan the appointment for Botox injections at least 2 weeks prior to your first holiday party.


What you need to know about Juvederm

 Fillers such as Juvederm Ultra Plus, Juvederm voluma, Restylane and Radiesse utilize hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance underneath the skin that gives it a youthful and smooth look. Over the course of a person’s lifetime the collagen beneath the skin wears thin, causing sagging and wrinkling. These fillers help to temporarily reverse that damage. This treatment is applied via under skin injections.  Make the treatment appointment before having to sort out all the little details that pop up during the last few weeks of the holidays. While Fillers can show results immediately it can take time to work underneath the skin, with many people seeing the desired results about two weeks after the procedure. If you want to look youthful & glowing consider getting a Filler treatment.

 While these skin treatments can be costly, the long term results as well as the confidence that comes from looking your best outweighs the cost.  Botox and Juvederm treatments will banish the lines caused by the stress of holiday planning, so that you can fully enjoy this special season.

 Let the expert medical professional at vivaMD Med Spa & Weight Loss Center help you prepare for the holidays with the right skin treatment to give you the results you desire.  Explore our website: www.vivamd.com for our Holiday Specials and call today (510) 742-5795 to schedule an appointment.
