Both the BOTOX® cosmetic and JUVÉDERM® dermal fillers are injected gently under the skin using a very thin needle. In order to make the procedure as comfortable as possible for you, a topical gel will be applied prior to any treatment to minimize any pain or discomfort. This procedure can take between 30-60 minutes depending on your aesthetic goals and the size of the treatment area.

Both BOTOX® cosmetic and JUVÉDERM® treatments are very safe but, as with all dermal fillers, there are potential and mild side effects which include:

  • Bruising
  • Temporary weakness of adjacent muscles
  • Tenderness
  • Redness
  • Swelling

These side effects experienced at the injection sites will typically resolve within a few days, leaving you with brighter, firmer and smoother skin.

During a consultation with one of our skin specialists, we will take into consideration factors such as your aesthetic needs, current health status and medical history to evaluate whether SOFT LIFT™ is right for you. Typically, it should not be considered a treatment option for:

  • Patients who have severe allergies with a history of anaphylaxis
  • Patients with known allergies to lidocaine or gram-positive bacterial proteins
  • Patients with known allergies to any components of BOTOX®
  • Patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Patients who have a motor neuron disease
  • Patients who have a neuromuscular disease

When carried out safely and by a trained and experienced skin care specialist, SOFT LIFT™ is a quick and comfortable alternative to more aggressive surgical procedures, personalized for your individual goals and needs.
