Have you started to notice the signs of aging creeping up on your face? Are fine lines and wrinkles making you look older than you really are? Or maybe a loss in facial volume is what you’d like to correct. Whatever the case, we’ve got you covered. With Botox® and dermal fillers, you can reverse the signs of facial aging with a few simple injections.

Botox

Likely due to its surge in popularity over the last several years, Botox has become synonymous with all injectable anti-aging treatments. But it actually has a very specific set of issues that the FDA has approved it for, which include frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. What makes Botox so effective in these areas is that it treats the cause of fine lines and wrinkles at the source—the repeated muscle contractions underneath. Over time these constant movements can lead to the formation of lines, wrinkles, and creases, bringing about to the signs of aging—often prematurely. But targeted injection with Botox can soften and smooth out these concerns with little to no downtime.

Soft Tissue Fillers

Dr. Kramer understands that a one-size-fits-all approach to non-surgical facial rejuvenation just doesn’t work. Everyone ages in their own personal and unique way, and not every region of the face responds to fillers in the same manner. That’s why he is proud to offer several options to cover all of your anti-aging needs. The following hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler treatments are safe and provide long-lasting results.

  • Juvéderm® XC smooths out the lines that run from the corners of your mouth to your chin (marionette lines) and those that go from the nose down to the mouth (nasolabial folds). It can also be used to add volume to thinning or naturally slender lips.
  • Juvéderm Voluma® works to replenish volume lost to the aging process. Not only does it add fullness to the midface and cheek areas, it can provide a subtle lift as well.
  • Restylane® Refyne is designed to minimize the appearance of laugh lines, while maintaining natural-looking expressions using Restlyane’s incredible XpresHAn Technology™.
  • Restylane® Silk can help provide you with fuller, smoother, natural-looking lips.
  • Restylane® Lyft is a volumizing filler, intended for restoring lost volume to the cheeks and hands for a younger appearance.

A One-Two Anti-Aging Punch

Even better, you don’t have to sacrifice one area of the face for the other. Many of our Boise-area patients enjoy the benefits of both Botox and soft tissue fillers to wipe out all the tell tale signs of aging. Think of it as a “liquid facelift” that can help you put off a more intensive facelift procedure. This allows Dr. Kramer’s experienced injectors the ability to customize treatments and give your unique facial features the level of rejuvenation they need.
