Botox / Juvéderm
Dr. Paul Anast at Kimberly Smiles offers Botox® treatment to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and facial creases to help you look younger and feel your best.
Botox® is usually used on the forehead, around the eyes and frown lines. The procedure only takes a few minutes and doesn’t require any anesthesia. Once applied, it can take up to a week to take full effect and will last four to six months. With repeated treatment, Botox® will train your muscles to relax so that any facial lines will appear smoother.
Contact our office if you have any questions or are interested in Botox® treatment.
What is Botox® Cosmetic and how does it work?
It is the first and only FDA-approved prescription product that temporarily improves your face appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines. It is injected directly into the muscles and works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes wrinkles to form.
Botox® Cosmetic is not just for women
If you are a man and think it’s time to do something about those wrinkles on your face, talk to our doctor about whether Botox® Cosmetic is right for you.
Dr. Anast offers Juviderm® as an option to decrease the appearance of facial winkles. It uses smooth Hyaluronic Acid dermal fillers, optimally formulated in contouring wrinkles and folds. It is used on facial tissues where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur to temporarily add volume to the skin, especially around the nose and mouth. Treatment takes about 15 minutes and can last from three to six months. It is a quick, in-office procedure with immediate results and no downtime.
We can assess your needs and explain the benefits of Juviderm®. Schedule a consultation with our Wicker Park Chicago dentist.
