Allergan Treatments for Men and Women in Oklahoma
In business since 1950, Allergen Pharmaceuticals, Inc. has developed some of the most popular and effective aesthetic products in the marketplace, including BOTOX ® and JUVÉDERM®. At Balance Hormone Center, we recommend these FDA-approved injectables for patients who want to reduce facial lines and wrinkles through a safe and effective course of treatment.
Botox®—The Proven Treatment for Eliminating Lines That Age Your Face
BOTOX is one of the world’s most popular cosmetic treatments. It is often used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Derived from Clostridium botulinum, a natural, non-toxic organism, BOTOX works by temporarily reducing muscle activity that cause lines to form over time. BOTOX is a proven treatment for reducing or eliminating:
- Dimpled chin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Forehead lines
- Frown lines
- Hyperhidrosis (overproduction of sweat)
- Lines between the brows (glabella)
- Moderate-to-severe crow’s feet
- Nasal radix (bunny lines)
- Neck bands
- Thin lips
BOTOX treatments are administered via injection directly into the neuromuscular tissue. Many patients see noticeable results within 24-48 hours after injection, with results lasting up to four months.
It is important to remember that all medical treatments have potential side effects—BOTOX is not an exception. Potential side effects from BOTOX treatments include dry mouth, discomfort or pain at the injection site, headache, neck pain, eye problems and allergic reactions.
JUVÉDERM®—Effective Treatment for Restoring Volume & Smoothing Wrinkles
JUVÉDERM® is an injectable hyaluronic acid dermal gel filler developed to increase skin’s volume while smoothing away wrinkles and folds. JUVÉDERM works by stimulating the production of two proteins, collagen and elastin. These proteins add to your skin’s fullness and elasticity, the two essentials to a youthful appearance.
We offer two forms of JUVÉDERM treatments, including:
- JUVÉDERM XC: Used in the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles around the nose and mouth, JUVÉDERM XC is ideal for patients looking for a younger appearance.
- JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC: By instantly adding volume to the cheeks, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC helps patients appear younger.
JUVÉDERM is particularly beneficial in the treatment of:
- Parentheses (smile lines)
- Corner lines
- Marionette lines
- Vertical lip lines
- Volume loss in cheeks
Many patients see noticeable effects immediately after injection, with results lasting up to two years.
JUVÉDERM also comes with its own potential side effects. Those include temporary injection site pain, redness, tenderness, firmness, swelling lumps/bumps, bruising, itching and discoloration.
