Four Fabulous Facial Cosmetic Procedures at Utah Facial Plastics
Sometimes it’s hard to know what’s best and how to get the most bang for your buck. Here are four fabulous facial cosmetic procedures that are highly popular with proven success we see time and time again with our many patients.
It’s no surprise Botox ranks on our top 4 list for facial cosmetic procedures. Providers have been using Botox for 3 decades now, not only for facial rejuvenation but for many medical disorders as well. Botox has proven to work well and comes with little risk. Treatments are quick, easy, and come with results that can’t typically be achieved by any other means. Botox has one of the highest satisfaction ratings with a 95% on RealSelf.com.
The most common places Botox is injected are between the brows, in the forehead, and around the eyes for the “crow’s feet” lines. Following treatment, results take approximately 4-7 days to begin working. The muscles are weakened to smooth lines and wrinkles in the face.
Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid injectable that restores volume loss in lines and wrinkles in the face. Juvederm and Botox are often used together for comprehensive rejuvenation. Common areas Juvederm is injected include the folds around the mouth (nasolabial folds), marionette lines, and in the lips.
Following approximately 20-30 of numbing, Juvederm is injected directly under the skin and the results are instant. Juvederm is water-soluble, therefore a greater plumping effect takes place 3-4 days following treatment as well. Bruising and swelling can occur and typically resolves within 4-7 days.
3) LIP AUGMENTATION
Lip augmentation is one of the most popular procedures today with woman of all ages looking to restore lost volume or simply enhance them for a fuller, more plump pout. There are three different formulations of Juvederm that are used to achieve the desired look of each patient. Volbella provides a more subtle augmentation, Juvederm gives a standard result while Juvederm Ultra is for patients desiring a more full look.
Numbing cream is applied for approximately 30 minutes prior to injections to make the procedure as comfortable as possible. From there, it takes about 15 minutes to inject with possibly bruising and swelling that may take 4-10 days to fully resolve. Ice is given to help with the swelling. UFP is offering $75 off lip fillers during the month of February 2017 with our “Love Your Lips” special.
4) VENUS VIVA TREATMENTS
The Venus Viva is the latest technology UFP has added to our arsenal of skin resurfacing treatments.
