BOTOX® & Juvéderm – Lincoln, NE
Enhance Your Smile with BOTOX® & Juvéderm
Every time you make a facial expression throughout your life, your muscles
need to scrunch-up and contort. Over the years, fine lines and wrinkles will
appear and the collagen that lies beneath the surface of your skin will begin
to break down, causing your features to look thinned and sunken.
Dr. Jennifer Reed
is passionate about facial esthetics and cosmetic dentistry. She loves helping
patients feel confident in their skin, which is why she’s happy to offer
BOTOX and Juvéderm injections.
BOTOX injections are a fast, cost-effective, and simple cosmetic treatment to
help enhance your smile and overall appearance, especially if you feel as
though you look older than you actually are. When injected into overworked and
scrunched muscles, BOTOX in Lincoln helps them relax and smooth out. This
treatment can minimize the appearance of crow’s feet, lines between the
eyebrows, smoker’s lines around the lips, and smile lines at either end
of the mouth. Instead of having to commit to an invasive procedure, like
plastic surgery, you can enjoy fast and subtle, beautiful results that can
last for up to six months and involve virtually no recovery time.
Many people believe that BOTOX and Juvéderm are the same treatment, but
that’s actually not the case. Unlike BOTOX, Juvéderm acts to
replace lost collagen that helps your facial features appear plumper and more
youthful, like your lips, jaw, and cheeks. It has a smooth consistency, is
FDA-approved, and is made from hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in
the body. Once injected into certain areas of the face, dermal fillers provide
features with a lifted, smoothed, and youthful appearance that lasts about six

Xeomin uses the same active ingredient as Botox, but the effects usually take about three to four days to become apparent as opposed to two to three. Some patients prefer the peak effects of the treatment to appear more slowly, which makes them more subtle. Also, unlike Botox, the botulinum toxin is
bound to compounding proteins, meaning that Xeomin is effective for patients who are Botox-resistant. This can occur due to someone’s immune system or as a result of using high doses of Botox for a long period of time (which is often the case for people who rely on it to help with teeth grinding).
