Facial Rejuvenation in New Jersey
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription drug that, when injected, temporarily paralyzes muscles. It contains a purified and safe form of botulinum toxin A, which is produced by the microbe that causes botulism. Manufactured by Allergan, Inc., it is used to treat permanent furrows and deep wrinkles in the skin that are formed by the continual contraction of facial muscles. In addition to its cosmetic applications, it is used to treat a number of medical problems, including excessive sweating, overactive bladder, neck spasms, crossed eyes, chronic back and jaw pain, and migraines.
Dr. Purewal offers Juvéderm® XC, Juvéderm Voluma® XC, Juvéderm® Ultra XC, Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC, Juvéderm Vollure® XC, and Juvéderm Volbella® XC – the entire line of Juvéderm® dermal fillers – to address and help combat these problems. Each product is used to treat a different area of the face by replacing the volume inevitably lost with aging.
Using ultrasound energy, Ultherapy® treatment lifts and tightens skin on the face and neck. Ultherapy treatment works on the deep layers of tissue usually targeted during a facelift or neck lift, but leaves surface skin alone. By heating tissue with sound waves, collagen production increases, resulting in younger-looking skin. According to its manufacturer, Ulthera, Inc., Ultherapy treatment “is the only noninvasive procedure FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, chin and brow.”
