Dr. Craig performs this procedure to eliminate the long deep creases many people develop above their eyes on their eyebrows. We call these deep creases, worry lines or frown lines. The lines at the corners of your eyes are known as crow's-feet. Botox relaxes the underlying facial brow muscles and eliminates the lines or creases. Treatments involve precisely placed injections and may last for about four to six months. Alternatives include Botox Cosmetic and Dysport.
Among the most popular fillers and injectables are Juvéderm and Restylane, though Dr. Craig uses many other products currently on the market – Radiesse, Sculptra, Perlane and Belotero, to name a few. The purpose of these fillers and injectables is to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles and smooth skin tone all over the face.
As we age, our skin changes. Over time, the natural contours of youthful skin begin to change as wrinkles and folds form. Young faces are full of volume and look refreshed. Hollows and folds can make you look tired, worn, sad and even angry.
If you are looking to avoid the downtime of surgery and laser treatments, injectable fillers like Restylane and Juvéderm, can help restore your youthful contours. By adding volume to your face, these fillers can help you look as young as you feel.
