Botox Cosmetic

For a smooth, natural look and feel that lasts. Many of us would love to improve our appearance, but don’t have either the time or the desire to undergo cosmetic surgery. With Botox Cosmetic treatments you can dramatically soften worry lines, frown lines, laugh lines and crow’s feet.

Dr. Jason C. Cheung has been using Botox for the treatment of strabismus (misalignment of the eyes) and eyelid spasm since 1994. With the FDA approval of Botox for cosmetic use, Dr. Cheung is pleased to offer his expertise with Botox in the treatment of facial wrinkles.

A gentle approach to recapture your youthful look.

Botox is injected directly into a specific muscle so that only the action of that muscle will be paralyzed. Therefore, the problem that muscle causes will be stopped, leaving your skin smooth and relaxed. After the treatment, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled while the untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion. Some of the most common areas treated include crow’s feet, frown and laugh lines, and forehead wrinkles.

Juvederm Injectable Gel

Juvederm injectable gel is a smooth gel filler your doctor eases under your skin to instantly smooth out those wrinkles or folds that look like parentheses along the sides of your nose and mouth. Results aren’t just instant, they’re so smooth and natural everyone will notice but no one will know.

Young, healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). But as you age, sunlight and other factors can reduce the amount of HA in your skin. The lack of HA causes your skin to lose structure and volume, creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds – like those parentheses lines around your nose and mouth.

Using a dermal filler like JUVÉDERM® XC is a safe and effective way to replace the HA your skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds.
