Botox Cosmetic Treatments Queens, NY:
Botox is a safe and effective treatment for the temporary reduction of moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles, as well as facial asymmetries, muscle contraction and migraine headaches. A natural purified protein, FDA-approved Botox Cosmetic is the most common medical cosmetic treatment, with more than four million treatments performed per year. It is often used to treat dynamic wrinkles. Botox is often used in conjunction with injectable fillers which treat the static wrinkles Botox alone cannot alleviate in more severe cases.
Dr. Wanda Arden uses Botox to lift and shape the brows, soften or eliminate lines on the forehead, crow's feet, frown lines, lines under the eyes, bunny lines, dimpled chins, fine lines around the lips and reduce the appearance of gummy smiles. Botox treatments are one of the fastest non-surgical waysthat you can look years younger.
How Botox Cosmetic Works:
When you frown, smile or make any other facial expression, your muscles contract under the skin. This constant musclemovement draws the skin together and causes it to lose elasticity. The results can be frown lines, wrinkles and crow's feet. When injected carefully and precisely into specific muscles, Botox blocks nerve impulses from activating the muscles, so the skin above appears morerelaxed and smoother. In some cases, with repeated treatments, the wrinkle can actually disappear.
Dr. Wanda Arden's Unique Approach:
A true artist, Dr. Arden doesn't just erase wrinkles. Her expertise in the ART and SCIENCE of BOTOX guides her specifically tailored treatments to rebalance a patient's muscles and facial harmony resulting in a refreshed, younger version of yourself. Careful observation of each patient's facial symmetry and muscular contraction will begin your consultation with Dr. Arden. With a meticulous eye and conservative approach, Dr. Arden will discuss and determine with you the appropriate number of units of Botox needed to achieve your desired outcome.
What to Expect From Botox:
Botox treatments are quick and virtually painless. Dr. Arden has a very unique approach utilizing a gel ice pack and a gentle hand to ensure your comfort during the procedure. If you prefer, the area can be numbed with anesthetic cream as well. The entire procedure takes about 10-15 minutes and requires no recovery time. Botox has very few side effects and allows you to resume normal activities immediately. Although results may vary, most people see an improvement in three to five days. Effects usually last three to six months, repeated treatments can lead to longer-lasting effects.
Juvederm Cosmetic Treatments in Queen, NY:
Do you feel like you look more tired than you are? Does your makeup get stuck in lines and wrinkles that weren't there when you were younger? Juvederm injectable gel is a smooth consistency dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance in your skin. Juvederm treatment can diminish the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (parentheses between the corners of the mouh and the nose), as well as any other wrinkles around the mouth or nose such as vertival lip lines. Juvederm injections can also be used to enhance the lips, creating fuller lips and a more symmetrical appearance. Juvederm is FDA-approved to last up to one year.
What To Expect:
Dr. Arden will discuss your options with you for dealing with facial lines, wrinkles, folds and/or lip augmentation. She will help you understand the pros and cons of each treatment and make recommendations to help you achieve your esthetic goals. Before your procedure begins, a topical anesthetic cream may be used on the areas to be treated. With Dr. Arden's core training as a general and cosmetic dentist, she can also expertly administer a painless dental block, achieving widespread numbing of the skin to keep you comfortable, if you prefer. Once sufficiently numbed, a tiny needle is used to inject a small amount of the Juvederm into the skin to fill the wrinkles and folds. The procedure takes about 30-45 minutes with minimal discomfort. Results are immediate. Juvederm and other fillers are often used in conjunction with Botox to enhance the life of results.
