WHAT IS BOTOX® Cosmetic:
Botox is commonly used to improve the look of frown lines (glabellar lines) between the brows, crow's feet at the corners of the eyes, forehead lines, laughter lines, to erase ‘bunny lines’ on the side of the nose and to give a slight lift to a drooping nose. Botox is a safe treatment involves a type of botulinum toxin type A being injected directly into the muscles between the brows or other areas being treated. These injections affect the tiny muscles of the face responsible for wrinkles.
RESULTS: With Botox treatments the appearance of frown lines and other treated areas will be dramatically improved within three to five days of treatment. The skin will appear smoother and unlined. A misconception is that BOTOX® injections "freeze" the face. Untreated facial muscles work as usual to allow the normal facial expressions and are unaffected by the treatment. This is true of expertly administered Botox injections.
HOW OFTEN: Botox injections will be needed to maintain the effects. After several treatments, the effects of Botox will begin to last longer. Repeat treatments may only be required every four to six months. At White Wave we take a ‘less is more’ approach to assure you of the look desired for customized image enhancement for every individual. We always see patients two weeks following the initial treatment to check the results and reassess.

WHAT IS FILLER:
Injectable Juvederm dermal fillers are a highly effective anti-ageing treatment with instant results and virtually no down time. Our doctors have expertise with Juvederm injectables and have an eye for detail, preferring a natural looking result that is flattering rather than an obvious overfilled look. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the body and helps to create volume beneath facial skin, along with collagen, elastin and fat cells. As we age our natural reserves of hyaluronic acid break down. This results in facial volume loss and that full-faced youthful look gradually diminishes. Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm can be used for restoring the lost volume in the face, smoothing and reducing wrinkles and lines, and creating fuller lips. The effects of just a small touch of additional volume provided by hyaluronic acid fillers can make quite a dramatic difference to your appearance, leaving you looking instantly younger and refreshed.
RECOMMENDED FOR: Juvederm can be used on all skin types. No allergy testing is required. As hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring, it is safe to use on anyone.
RESULTS: Instant, subtle and natural looking facial re-shaping and contouring. That all-important youthful volume is restored to the upper half of the face. Cheekbones can be defined and the appearance of the "tear trough", which can develop under the eye as a result of volume loss, is diminished. In addition, the nose to mouth lines are lifted and smoothed away leaving you with a fresher, more youthful look.
HOW OFTEN: The effects of Juvederm hyaluronic acid fillers can last in excess of a year, although the longevity of results varies from patient to patient. The body will eventually break down and absorb the hyaluronic acid over time. It’s important to remember that the Juvederm treatment is not permanent so there’s no risk of being stuck with a look you may not be happy with for years to come.
