If Botox and fillers are a new concept to you, Dr. Marvil will explain how Botox can improve the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows, forehead lines, crow’s feet, and smoker’s lines. In addition we also have Juvéderm which is a smooth injectable gel filler that helps restore your skin’s volume and smooths away facial wrinkles and folds. It leaves you with a natural look and feel that holds up over time.

Mt. Pleasant’s Botox Specialist
Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic medical procedures. It can take years off your face by dramatically reducing the appearance of wrinkles caused by facial expressions.
Botox is best for “active” or “dynamic” wrinkles – the ones that appear when your face is animated, like the forehead, furrows, and crow’s feet. “Static” wrinkles, which appear when your face is not in motion, are best treated with dermal fillers like Juvederm.
HOW DOES BOTOX WORK?
Botox works by blocking nerve impulses and temporarily limiting the muscles that cause facial wrinkles. The result is a smoother, more refreshed face! Botox treatment is a simple, no downtime procedure that is safe, effective and provides natural looking results.
The simplicity of Botox injections has made it incredibly popular. You need a knowledgeable, experienced surgeon in a safe and sterile environment to administer Botox injections. As a Maxillofacial Surgeon, Dr. Marvil has vast experience with both Botox and fillers.
Patients who receive Botox injections will see the difference within a week and can enjoy the benefits for 3-4 months.
Sometimes, a combination of both dermal fillers and Botox will achieve optimal results. Ask Dr. Marvil during your consultation if this would be your most advantageous approach to a more youthful look and feel!
Juvéderm is a dermal filler composed of hyaluronic acid gel, a substance that naturally occurs in the facial tissues.
The intended use of the product is to temporarily enhance lips, restore facial volume, and reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles, folds and other visible signs of aging.
To precisely meet the needs of each individual patient, Juvéderm is available in two formulas: Juvéderm Ultra and Juvéderm Ultra Plus, with the latter formula made for deeper wrinkles or folds.
WHAT IS HYALURONIC ACID?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring chemical in the body that gives volume to the skin and hydrates the tissue. Over the course of time, the body’s supply of hyaluronic acid gets more and more depleted, leading to conditions like wrinkles or a sunken, hollow appearance. The injection of Juvederm can work to correct these signs of aging and restore facial volume.
In 2006, the United States FDA approved Juvéderm for treating mild to moderate facial creases. Anyone concerned about facial wrinkles, lines and folds should consider using Juvéderm.
During the procedure, Juvéderm is placed beneath the skin and sometimes massaged into place. The entire process may be as brief as 30 minutes. Afterward, you might experience some mild swelling but should be able to return to their normal routine with a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance.
