Botox

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple, nonsurgical treatment approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It can smooth moderate to severe wrinkles including frown lines between the brows, crow’s feet, and forehead lines in people from 18 to 65 years of age. Botox Cosmetic is also used for lip lines, correction of a gummy smile and to soften jowls.  The end result is a rested, bright look—not a frozen look.  There is no downtime associated with the procedure.  Most people can go right back to work but must follow specific aftercare instructions for 6 hours post treatment. Botox starts working in 5-10 days but is at its peak in 2 weeks.  It is FDA approved to last 3-4 months.

Allergan, the distributor of Botox, has a program called Brilliant Distinctions. With each treatment of Botox , Juvederm, or Latisse patients earn  discount coupons for further treatments that result in significant savings.

Dysport

Dysport is the second drug to be approved by the FDA to smooth moderate to severe wrinkles between the brows, forehead  and crow's feet.  It is also used for lip lines, correction of gummy smile and jowls.   The end result is also a rested, bright look. 

As with Botox there is no downtime and most people can go right back to work but must follow specific aftercare instructions for 6 hours.  Dysport starts working in 3-4 days but is at its peak in 2 weeks and can last up to 4 months.

Juvederm

Juvéderm is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Hyaluronic acid may diminish with age, contributing to the formation of wrinkles and folds. Juvederm is great for "laugh lines," "smile lines," "parentheses," "marionette lines," and correction or enhancement of lips. Juvéderm provides a smooth, natural look and feel—so everyone will notice (but no one will know)!

Juvéderm is the ONLY hyaluronic acid (HA) filler FDA approved to last up to 1 year. Juvéderm injectable gel is a quick and easy procedure that requires no allergy skin test. The Juvéderm injection process takes only about 15 minutes and results are immediate. The procedure is almost painless as the product now comes with a numbing agent in the syringe.

Most people give themselves a day off of work for folds and 3-4 days for lips.  The results are evident immediately and get better over 2 weeks for folds, while lips swell for a couple of days.

Please call us with any questions or to schedule a free consultation.

Restylane

Restylane is also a smooth consistency gel made up of hyaluronic acid and is also used for laugh lines, parentheses, marrionette lines and correction or enhancement of lips.   There are a few differences between Juvederm and Restylane, but mainly it is the injectors preference. Restylane lasts 6-12 months and with only one follow-up treatment the effect has been shown to last up to 18 months.   Individual results may vary.  Recovery is minimal and time off work the same as Juvederm.  It also is almost painless as it comes with a numbing agent in the syringe.

Sculptra

The evolution of the wrinkle filler has led to an amazingly effect product, Sculptra. But Sculptra is not a wrinkle filler, it's a voluminzer.  It replaces the natural volume loss that occurs with age in a gradual, progressive and predictible manner.

This volume replacement fills the skin so that it is lifted; not surgically with scalpel and sutures, but lifted by the formation of your body’s own collagen - collagen that was created in surrounding microscopic particles that make up Sculptra.

Sculptra does not give results immediately. There is a time factor involved since the true volume effect is created by your own collagen, not the product itself. This collagen replenishment takes place over a period of several months. Patients usually receive more than one injection session to accomplish optimum re-voluminization.

Our faces don't so much "fall" with time. They actually lose volume and deflate. This deflation and volume loss leaves the face looking less 3-dimensional than we did when we were younger. Volume restoration brings back the dimensional qualities, improves symmetry and can "pick" up sagging skin.

Each treatment consists of a few injections to the area needing to be voluminized—cheeks, temple, chin, jawline. The product is administered with local anesthesia and the discomfort is minimal.

Studies have shown that results can last up to 3 years and thereafter periodic touch-ups will maintain the desired results.
