Botox

How Does Botox Work?

Botulinum Toxin, or Botox, is used for both cosmetic purposes and to treat a number of medical conditions including migraines, muscle stiffness, and certain eye issues. Our patients typically request Botox to help them combat the look of fine lines and wrinkles in the face. Botox works by blocking the signal from the nerves at the injection site to the muscles. This restricts the muscle’s ability to contract, softening the look of the treated area. Restricting movement in the treated area can also keep wrinkles from becoming more pronounced over time.

How is Botox Administered?

Botox injections can be administered in a matter of moments and without the use of any anesthesia. Your medical professional will use a fine needle to target specific muscles. During this process, you may experience some discomfort, but the procedure is relatively pain-free. Once you receive your Botox injections, it will take up to seven days for the substance to take full effect. In some cases, bruising may occur at the injection site. To help avoid this, it is recommended that you avoid aspirin and other anti-inflammatory medications for at least two weeks prior to your treatment.

Botox is not a permanent treatment for fine lines and wrinkles. The effects of Botox will typically last anywhere from three to four months. After this time, you will notice increased muscle movement in the treated areas and the appearance of lines and wrinkles will increase again until you receive your next Botox treatment.

Is Botox Right for You?

Botox is generally safe for most patients, however, in rare cases, allergic reactions may occur. Patients who are pregnant or nursing, or patients taking blood thinning medication should avoid Botox and any other dermal injections. During your initial consultation, one of our experienced staff members will discuss your particular case and whether or not Botox is the right solution for you.

Younger looking skin is just a phone call away. You can improve the look of your fine lines and wrinkles in as little as a day with Botox injections. Contact us today to schedule your appointment.

Dysport

Many people turn to dermal fillers to improve the look of their fine lines and wrinkles. Unfortunately, some popular injectables come with the unwanted side effect of restricting your facial expressions to the point that you look unnatural. You may not enjoy the look of wrinkles on your face, but a frozen facial expression isn’t any more desirable.

Thankfully there is Dysport, a different kind of cosmetic injectable that will improve the look of your fine lines and wrinkles without compromising the natural movement of your face. Dysport is just as effective as other injectables at reducing the appearance of wrinkles, however, the paralyzing effects of the injectable are much more targeted, allowing you to express yourself freely while enjoying younger looking skin.

How is Dysport Different?

Dysport works to decrease the appearance of lines by reducing only targeted muscle activity in the treated area. Dysport is typically administered in areas above the eyebrows that are responsible for the muscle contractions that cause frown lines. Like with other injectable, restricting these muscle movements smooths the look of the treated area and prevents wrinkles from becoming more defined. However, unlike other injectables, the rest of your face is still able to move naturally. Finally, there is a solution to help eliminate the look of your wrinkles without eliminating your ability to engage in normal facial expressions.

This treatment is quick, painless, and requires no downtime. Once administered, Dysport will take full effect within two to three days. You can then expect the effect of Dysport to last for up to four months. Dysport is perfect for patients who want to combat wrinkles while maintaining a natural look.

Generally, all adults under 65 years of age are good candidates for Dysport, with some exceptions. If you are pregnant or nursing, or if you have recently taken any type of blood-thinning medication, you should avoid receiving Dysport or any other type of dermal injections.

Contact us today to learn more about Dysport and whether it is the right solution for you. As the leading experts in dermal fillers and injectables in the area, our team of trained professionals is committed to finding the perfect solution for your unique needs.

Juvederm

Dermal fillers are among the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments on the market. They are safe, affordable, and effective in reducing the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Juvederm is one of the most trusted brands of dermal fillers available, and for good reason. The makers of Juvederm are constantly looking for ways to improve the formulation of their cosmetic injectables. Juvederm offers a variety of formulas for various applications. During your consultation, one of our dedicated staff members will discuss your particular goals and help you determine which filler is right for you.

Effective, Natural Results

One common complaint patients have about some dermal injections like Botox is that they restrict facial movements in an unnatural way. However, Juvederm doesn’t restrict muscle movements in your face. Juvederm is a dermal filler that works to tighten and plump up your skin. Wrinkles are instantly smoothed out, but your face is free to move as it normally would, giving you a more natural look. Juvederm is a great treatment to get on its own, or in conjunction with other anti-aging solutions.

What to Expect from Juvederm Injections

One of the best things about Juvederm Injections is that you can see results immediately. As soon as your technician administers the injections, your skin is noticeable plumper and wrinkles are significantly smoother. The injections themselves are not painful, although you may experience some slight redness or soreness in the injection area. These side effects are typically very mild and subside within a day of receiving your treatment. The effects of Juvederm are not permanent but will last for several months before you require an additional treatment.

Patients can also use Juvederm injections to increase lip volume. It’s not uncommon to lose lip volume with age. Other patients are simply not happy with the fullness of their natural lips. Juvederm is effective at helping you achieve plump lips; however, the effects are not permanent so you are not committed to your new look if you decide it’s not for you.

Kybella

The dreaded double chin. Even with diet and exercise, many people are simply not able to do anything about the fullness underneath their chin. A double chin can make patients feel embarrassed or self-conscious because they believe it makes them look heavier than they actually are. In the past, invasive surgical procedures like liposuction were the only solutions for stubborn fat under the chin. These procedures can be extremely painful and require at least some recovery time. However, now there is Kybella, a non-surgical solution for banishing your double chin for good.

How does Kybella Work?

Kybella contains a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, a molecule that occurs naturally in the body. Deoxycholic acid is responsible for breaking down and absorbing dietary fat. Kybella is injected into the area below the chin and goes to work to effectively abolish fat cells. In the weeks following your treatment, fat cells in the treated area will be expelled from the body naturally. The result is a noticeable reduction in your double chin.

During your initial consultation, your medical professional will discuss the specific course of treatment needed to achieve your desired results. This may include coming in for multiple treatments, each spaced out a month apart. Every patient is different, and the number of sessions required will generally be determined by the amount of fat underneath your chin. No patient will receive more than six treatments in total.

What to Expect After Your Treatment

Kybella injections are relatively painless and require no downtime. You will be able to return to your regular daily activities immediately after receiving your injections. However, you may experience some swelling and bruising in the treated area. These side effects are temporary and should subside within a few days after receiving your injections.

Finally, there is a non-invasive solution for getting rid of your stubborn double chin. Contact us today to learn more about Kybella and whether it’s right for you. We are the most experienced providers of cosmetic injectable in the area. Our staff will work with you to find the perfect solution to obtain your desired results.

Restylane

Restylane is a dermal filler that helps patients achieve younger looking skin on their face and hands. Restylane, like other dermal fillers, is made up of non-toxic substances that are injected under the skin to reduce the appears of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars. In additional Restylane can be used to increase the volume of your lips or contour areas of your face such as the chin, nose, or cheeks. Restylane is very popular with our patients because they are able to improve the appearance of their fine lines and wrinkles while maintaining a natural look and normal facial movements.

How Does Restylane Work?

Restylane is predominately used to treat the look of medium-death wrinkles on the face including “marionette lines”. The treatment is injected in strategic parts of the face to help add fullness to the area, thereby decreasing the appearance of wrinkles. Restylane is made of hyaluronic acid gel. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar that naturally found the body. Hyaluronic acid draws moisture underneath the skin, helping to achieve a plumper appearance that makes skin appear smoother and younger.

During your appointment, one of our trained technicians will talk to you about your desired outcome and determine where and how much Restylane to administer during your treatment. The needles used to inject the treatment under your skin are so small, that the procedure is virtually painless.

Once you finish your treatment, you will be able to see immediate results, but the benefits of Restylane don’t stop there. This cosmetic injectable may help your body with natural collagen production as well. Collagen is essential to maintaining the firmness and elasticity of your skin, helping you maintain a younger appearance longer.

You Don’t Have to Live with Wrinkles

Firmer, younger looking skin is possible with Restylane. Contact us today to learn more about cosmetic injectables and how they can help you reverse the signs of aging. Whether you’ve just started noticing some fine lines around your eyes, or if you have deeper wrinkles around your mouth and chin, Restylane can help you achieve the smooth, healthy-looking skin you enjoyed in years past.

Restylane Lyft 

What is Restylane Lyft?

Restylane Lyft is a type of dermal filler that is used to smooth out wrinkles and add volume to a patient’s face or hands. Like many popular dermal fillers, Restylane Lyft is made of hyaluronic acid. The main purpose is to have a plumping effected underneath the skin of the treated area. This can add lift to sagging cheeks, smooth out fine lines on the face, or add volume to the back of your hands, which can depress with age.

The plumping effect of Restylane Lyft can effectively smooth out wrinkles in a targeted area, however, these results are not permanent. Eventually, the effects of Restylane Lyft injections do wear off, and follow-up treatments will be needed if you want to continue to maintain the plumping effect caused by the injections. However, you can go many months in between Restylane Lyft treatments as this is one of the longest-lasting injectable solutions available.

What to Expect During Your Treatment

During your appointment, an experienced technician will discuss your target areas and desired effect. Based on your goals, your technician will determine where the injections should be administered to achieve the best results. Restylane Lyft is administered using very fine needles, plus Restylane Lyft contains lidocaine, which means that your treatment should be completely pain-free. From start to finish your treatment can take as little as 15 minutes. Once you’ve received your injections, you are free to resume your daily activities.

Immediate Results and Long-Lasting Effects

Immediately following your treatment, you will be able to notice toner, smoother looking skin in the treated area. Restylane Lyft injections will continue to be effective or as much as ten months before you require an additional treatment. However, every individual will experience different results.

If you’re ready to have toner looking skin or younger looking hands, contact today to learn more about Restylane Lyft and whether it’s right for you. Our staff is highly trained in administering dermal injections and many other cosmetic skin care treatments. Together, we can help you achieve the healthy, beautiful skin you’ve been dreaming of.

Questions & Answers

1What are the Effects of Botox®?
Botox® injections are made using a neurotoxin known as Botulinum Toxin A. This neurotoxin is known for paralyzing the muscles, causing them to relax. This reduces the tightness within the tissues of the face that often lead to wrinkles, lines, and creases. Botox® injections cause the skin to fill out, especially in areas where tissues have been weakened or fat has been lost. Botox® is extremely effective when used in the lips, around the forehead, and along the cheeks and jawline. By adding volume to these areas, the skin is tightened and begins to look more toned, resulting in a younger, more natural appearance.
2What are the Benefits of Juvederm®?
Juvederm® offers benefits over and above Botox® injections. When Juvederm® is used, the production of both elastin and collagen are increased. Collagen fibers and elastin are two components that help to support the overall structure of the skin. As a person ages, the body's production of these two important components dramatically decreases causing the skin to sag and become loose. When injectables are used, the structure of the skin begins to receive the support it needs. It will become firmer and more toned with each treatment, minimizing the appearances of blemishes, lines, and wrinkles.
3Do Injectables Cause Side Effects?
Injectables, like any other type of medication or procedure, bears some risk of side effects. The most common side effects that have been reported with the use of injectables include warmth, tenderness to the touch near the injection site, inflammation, and redness. In some cases, a person may experience a headache, dizziness, and nausea. Each person is different. While some may have minimal reactions to the injections, others may experience mild side effects that last for several days. It is important for the doctor to discuss all of the patient's options with them prior to performing any type of procedure.
