Botox & Fillers

Botox® Cosmetic

Botox® Cosmetic is a prescription quality injectable neurotoxin (medication) which is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of frown lines, and often between the brows. Botox® minimizes or reduces wrinkles that appear as furrows between the eyebrows, forehead lines and crow’s-feet around the eyes. We provide the highest quality Botox® in Orangeburg, SC at reasonable prices and with exceptional service. 

Botox® is administered as a fast, simple, nonsurgical treatment which is injected directly into the muscles between the eyebrows. It works by blocking nerve impulses to those muscles thus reducing muscle activity which causes the lines to form between your brows.

Botox® Facts:

  • Botox®, introduced in 2002, is the first botulinum toxin to be approved by the FDA to temporarily treat moderate to severe glabellar lines between the brows.
  • Approximately 11.8 million Botox procedures have been administered in the United States since 2002.
  • Patients surveyed were satisfied with the results of their Botox experience. Individual results may vary.

Juvederm® Injectable Fillers

Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is one of the finest fillers for facial structures. It is smooth and nearly painless to inject.

Juvederm along with the other fillers from Allergan are made of hyaluronic acid (HA), a colorless smooth gel that is normally and naturally present in the human body. It is not an acid in the traditional sense we think of it, this is simply part of the chemical structure.

Hyaluronic Acid has many uses: it has been used for injections into arthritic joints in humans and animals for many years (some brand names include Synvisc and Hyalgan). HA can be formulated in different ways, and our supplier, the Allergan company, has perfected techniques to create different consistencies for different duration and uses.

Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is formulated specifically to be used around the mouth and the folds that make parentheses around the mouth and sometimes deep grooves between the nose and the corner of the mouth.

The results can be seen instantly following the injection of this and all the fillers; very little change will occur over the days following the injections. This is unlike Botox with which one must have patience for about two weeks to see the results.

Some changes – Dr. Franga and the SC Surgical Team’s injection technique has less bruising but there still may be some bruising. So if there is bruising, sometimes it develops overnight. Also usually there is some minor swelling with the injection sites, this will also resolve over 24 – 48 hours.
