2 Minute Read:
When considering skin rejuvenation treatments, there are several options available. BOTOX® Cosmetic, JUVÉDERM®, and rejuvenation peels are a series of options offered by Dr. Andreasen’s office. These procedures can be performed separately or in combination with each other.
What Are My Non-Surgical Options?
What Is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a neuromodulator designed to inhibit muscle movements that cause wrinkle formation. It can be injected in various facial muscles to prevent new wrinkles from forming and smooth out existing ones. BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments address wrinkles created through muscle contraction but does not restore lost volume or treat sagging skin.
What Is JUVÉDERM®?
JUVÉDERM® is a dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid, which allows the injected tissues to absorb and retain greater amounts of moisture. This allows the treated areas to become more plump. By enhancing the fullness of the treated areas, the treated skin is stretched so that wrinkles are eliminated. JUVÉDERM® works faster and lasts longer than BOTOX® Cosmetic, but treats wrinkles differently. BOTOX® Cosmetic is ideal for areas where muscle contraction causes wrinkles, while JUVÉDERM® is made to minimize wrinkles caused by sagging skin and volume loss.
What Are Rejuvenation Peels?
Rejuvenation peels are acid-based treatments applied to the surface of the skin to treat skin discoloration, scars, wrinkles, and rough skin texture. They work by removing the top layer of existing skin and enhancing the layers below. As the new skin layers grow in, they form a smoother, younger-looking appearance. Rejuvenation peels are suitable treatments for surface wrinkles, but will not treat wrinkles caused by muscle contraction or volume loss.
Should These Treatments Be Combined?
The good news is, all of these treatments can be used together to treat different issues.
Even though all three of these are designed to help restore healthier, smoother, and more youthful skin, they address different concerns (or address similar concerns in different ways). Of these three, BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only treatment designed for expression-causing wrinkles, dermal fillers are the only one that will restore facial volume, and rejuvenation peels are the only one that will improve skin texture.
Since many people struggle with more than one of these concerns, they will likely require more than one of these treatments to see significant skin rejuvenation results. None of the three treatments interfere with each other, and they can be used simultaneously if needed.
Some patients may have their needs met with one type of treatment, while others may want all three to achieve their aesthetic desires.

Facial Aging Treatments
Due to various factors, including aging, sun exposure, and other chemical pollutants, the facial skin develops unpleasant features. Fine lines, wrinkles, red or brown spots, and acne scars can be treated by our Rancho Cucamonga Botox professional, Dr. Andreasen. If you have furrows in the forehead/brow area, Botox injections can help to eliminate their appearance by temporarily blocking the underlying muscles that cause movement.
To help fill in deep creases and wrinkles, injectable dermal fillers can be used to lift the skin and produce a smoother appearance. Some of the facial fillers available at the practice of Dr. Andreasen include Radiesse ®, Juvederm ®, and Perlane ®. Additionally, those who would like to add volume to thin lips may inquire about Restylane ® lip injection treatments.

Dynamic wrinkles are the type of wrinkles that are caused by the everyday muscle contractions involved in actions such as chewing or facial expressions. For these types of wrinkles, there is the Botox treatment.
Botox treatment is designed to preserve your youthful appearance. It is FDA-approved and is easily the most popular cosmetic treatment. Botox works by limiting muscle contractions that crease the skin.
The procedure can take as little as fifteen minutes, and the results can last as long as four months. By relaxing muscle contractions, you can preserve a smooth, youthful appearance.

In the fight against aging, one of the best weapons we have is BOTOX. Wrinkles and lines that are caused by everyday facial movements are some of the primary signs of aging. However, with BOTOX injections, you can prevent these muscle movements from creating the creases that leave you looking older.
BOTOX injections are a convenient and effective treatment, but they require a great deal of artistry and experience. To achieve the best results, the appropriate number of injections need to be placed in the best locations. With an experienced practitioner like Dr. Troy Andreasen, you can achieve effective results that also look natural. BOTOX injections intercept the nerve impulses in the muscles that crease and wrinkle your face, thus limiting the effects of aging.

One of the most effective anti-wrinkle tools in the fight against aging is the BOTOX injection. BOTOX is, by far, the most popular cosmetic treatment. One of the things that makes BOTOX so useful is its ability to prevent the formation of wrinkles.
The combination of aging and repeated facial movements is one of the core causes behind facial wrinkles. When you smile, frown, smirk or furrow the eyebrows, the skin of your face typically bounces back to a smooth appearance. However, with aging, the skin loses this ability because of a natural loss of elasticity.
Anti-wrinkle treatments like BOTOX are effective for preserving your natural beauty because they limit the amount of creasing or folding the skin by preventing some of the muscle movements.
To determine if anti-wrinkle treatments like BOTOX are right for you, contact a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Troy Andreasen for more information.

Since it hit the cosmetic products market a little over ten years ago, Botox has exploded in popularity, with more than 10 million procedures performed. Botox is a cosmetic injection derived from the botulinum toxin that is injected into the muscles of the face in order to reduce the appearance of wrinkles or frown lines.
Botox works by intercepting impulses from the nerves of the muscles that have been injected and limits the amount of activity. The limited activity reduces the creation of wrinkles and lines over time because it is habitual activities such as smiling, frowning or furrowing eyebrows that create lines of aging.
Experienced practitioner Dr. Troy Andreasen can explain to you in detail how Botox can help you reduce the signs of aging in a quick, convenient way that typically lasts up to four months.
