Botox and Juvederm injections

Clinique Jean Gilbert offers several wrinkle treatments in Montreal. Among them, two temporary injectable fillers that have proved themselves successful: Botox Cosmetic® and the Juvederm® treatment. The visible effect of these two wrinkle treatments lasts several months and millions of people choose them to provide a smooth skin of youthful appearance.

Wrinkles deepen with age as the skin loses its elasticity and firmness. The repeated contractions of facial muscles, sun exposure and inadequate skin care are the most common causes of wrinkles, and they are sadly impossible to prevent. Fortunately, natural substances such as Botox and Juvederm injections can mitigate these aging effects. Available in Montreal, Botox is particularly effective on expression lines. Botox is injected into the muscle to prevent it from contracting. This procedure has a smoothing effect and also prevents the further deepening of wrinkles.

While the effects of the Botox wrinkle treatment lasts from four to eight months, the Juvederm filler allows the skin to regain a natural appearance from nine months to a year. Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid filled gel that, once injected in the cheeks or lips, causes an immediate response. This substance is naturally present in the human body. When injected, the body recognizes it and the dermal volume of the area grows. You will be pleased to learn that hyaluronic acid (HA) is a substance that your body produces naturally. It plays an important role in skin hydratation and volume, hence the beautiful effect when the body is once again asked to produce it to an acceptable level.

In Montreal, Juvederm wrinkle treatment is among what we might call these type of products’ new generation. It is a wrinkle treatment that does not require you to do an allergy test before using it. You can resume your normal activities immediately after the treatment, which lasts about 30 minutes. It is essential to ask a true health care professional for your injections.
