Dermal fillers offer an effective and noninvasive way to rejuvenate your skin’s appearance. The team at Rinnova Skin & Body offers Juvéderm, one of the top dermal fillers on the market.
The fillers work by plumping and volumizing your skin with hyaluronic acid, a natural substance produced by your skin. As you age, the production of hyaluronic acid slows. Juvéderm replaces lost hyaluronic acid to add heft and hydration to your skin.
As you get older, you also lose some of the fat that lies just below the surface of your skin, making lines and wrinkles more obvious and leading to hollowed cheeks and thinning lips. Juvéderm can also add volume to these features to restore a youthful look.
Dr. Becker offers a comprehensive array of dermal fillers to address issues including:
Dr. Becker provides expert application of Juvéderm, so you get results that look naturally more youthful and not like you’ve had work done.

Botox is FDA-approved as a cosmetic treatment to temporarily reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles caused by the contraction of small facial muscles when you frown, squint, and smile. Used on millions of patients around the world, Botox is well-researched and highly effective in helping you look younger and more radiant.
Botox consists of a purified neurotoxin that temporarily paralyzes small facial muscles. When these muscles relax in response to the injections, your face relaxes and wrinkles fade.
Botox is effective in treating lines and wrinkles caused by expression. These include:
When Botox treatments are combined with dermal fillers, which can address lines around the mouth and nose as well as fill in hollowed cheeks and thinning lips, you restore a youthful, smooth appearance for the whole face.
Just about anyone older than 18 benefits from Botox. Although the injectables are typically used to treat wrinkles, you may also opt to start them early to halt muscle action and prevent lines and wrinkles from appearing in the first place.
Botox treatments take about 20 minutes. Your face is cleansed, and the locations of the relevant muscles and injection sites are identified. With each injection, you do feel the needle pinch, but most people tolerate the procedure quite well. If you’re concerned about pain, talk to the providers about using ice prior to treatment.
You don’t have to take time off following Botox treatments. You can go back to your regular activities right away following a session.
The effects of Botox injections begin to appear within 24-48 hours. Botox treatments last 3-4 months. If you like your results, you can schedule follow-up injections to maintain your look. The staff at Rinnova Skin & Body can help you get on a regular treatment schedule.
