Botox® & Fillers
Botox® Injection Treatments Near West Omaha
While wrinkles and fine lines come with age, it’s natural to want to look your best. Common wrinkle areas, such as forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and glabellar lines, arise due to repetitive facial expressions, excessive UV rays, or a lack of collagen production.
Our Botox® injections at our West Omaha dermatology clinic help to prevent the muscles in the treated area from moving for a certain period of time by blocking muscular nerve signals. This in turn helps to reduce and prevent wrinkles from showing up on the skin above the treated muscle. MOD Dermatology offers our West Omaha clients Botox injections as well as Dysport® and Xeomin® to reduce unwanted fine lines and wrinkles. A Botox treatment takes only a few minutes to complete, and results can last up to three months.
Benefits of Botox® Injections:
Stops Excessive Sweating
Excessive sweating, known as hyperhidrosis, can be decreased significantly through Botox injections. Due to the blocking of nerve signals, the sweat glands are no longer told to become active. For those who have tried topical treatments with no success, Botox may be the best option for you.
A Nonsurgical Procedure
Many people feel anxious about the idea of undergoing face surgery. The thought of having an incision anywhere on their face deters some people away from the procedure. Unlike face lifts, which are surgical procedures to reduce wrinkles, Botox is a nonsurgical cosmetic treatment that provides effective results.
One of the most common signs of aging is a loss of volume in the face, due to decreased collagen production. You may also experience fine lines and wrinkles for this same reason. Opting for dermal fillers to treat this decrease in volume is an effective treatment. The most common areas for dermal fillers include the cheeks, lips, and forehead. MOD Dermatology offers JUVÉDERM® and other brands of lip filler to our West Omaha clients who are looking to restore their youthful appearance.
Most dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance found in your body that provides your skin with hydration and volume. Products we use at our West Omaha clinic, such as JUVÉDERM and Restylane®, use this substance. Effects from these injections can last anywhere from 6 months to a year depending on the injection site and product used.
Botox® vs. Fillers
While Botox and fillers are both injectables, they do work in different ways and treat slightly different symptoms of aging. Botox works to stop facial muscles from moving, while fillers help to increase volume in the skin. Both Botox and dermal fillers may be used in conjunction to restore different aspects of your facial appearance.
