Can BOTOX® Cosmetic Improve Skin Elasticity?

BOTOX® Cosmetic has long been considered a temporary solution for reducing fine lines and deep wrinkles throughout the face. Indeed, a single BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment typically offers very pleasing results, but only for an average of four months. However, a new study conducted on 48 women with an average age of 55 has found that BOTOX® Cosmetic may be doing more for long-term facial rejuvenation than once suspected.

Is BOTOX® Cosmetic Safe?

Safety concerns over BOTOX® Cosmetic tend to be based on incomplete information or simple misunderstanding – much of which surrounds the active ingredient in these injections. BOTOX® Cosmetic contains botulinum toxin type A, a protein produced by the same bacteria that causes botulism. There is, however, no risk of botulism associated with BOTOX® Cosmetic.

Duration of Juvederm® Treatment

The FDA has approved Juvederm® as the only hyaluronic acid dermal fillers that can last for up to twelve months. However, this does not mean that Juvederm will continue to provide results for one year. Scottsdale plastic surgeon Dr. John Corey has found that the duration of a single Juvederm treatment will be dependent on both where the product was injected and how your body responds to the treatment.
