SO WHAT EXACTLY IS BOTOX, DYSPORT, AND XEOMIN? AND WHAT DOES IT DO?
Purpose: Softens and eliminates lines on brow and forehead and around eyes and lips.
Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are a neuromodulator that contains tiny amounts of a highly purified botulinum toxin protein refined from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum designed to treat wrinkles. Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin is injected in micro doses into the muscle(s) beneath a wrinkle. Botox/Dysport/Xeomin blocks the nerve impulses that usually control muscle movement. Free from the control of these nerve impulses, the facial muscles relax, resulting in smoother, softer-looking skin. Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are most often used in the following areas:
- Around the eyes
SO WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT WITH BOTOX/DYSPORT?
After being injected, it begins to take effect in 5-7 days, with optimum results at day 14. As the targeted muscle or muscles gradually become inactive, overlying wrinkles will be minimized.
Once your injection session is completed, you may see small bumps appear on your skin. This is normal and after about 30 minutes, these bumps disappear.
To maintain the results and to achieve the aesthetic goals you’ve set, injections are recommended every 3-4 months. When you maintain Botox, Dysport or Xeomin, the dosage may gradually decrease.
COULD I HAVE SIDE EFFECTS WITH BOTOX/DYSPORT./XEOMIN?
Some of the more common and less severe side effects include:
- Headache, mild
- Bruising, minimal
- Soreness or pain
- Muscle stiffness
These side effects should subside in a week. Less common side effects could include dry mouth, mild nausea, blurred or double vision, droopy eyelids, and itchy or watery eyes.
Purpose: Create and Restore lost volume to create or restore a youthful look!
WHAT CAN YOU TELL ME ABOUT COSMETIC DERMAL FILLERS?
We use injectable hyaluronic acid dermal fillers designed to improve the appearance of wrinkles and add or restore volume. Hyaluronic acid is a hydrating substance that is a natural part of your body. It delivers nutrients to the skin, helping the skin retain moisture and softness and adding volume. By replenishing the body’s storage of hyaluronic acid, your skin appears smoother and more voluminous, giving you a more youthful-looking appearance. Areas of treatment include:
- Parentheses (lines around the nose and mouth)
- Marionette lines (lines from corners of mouth to chin)
- Lips (Lip augmentation or Lip Filler)
- Fine lines around mouth ("Smokers Lines")
- Tear Trough
- Jaw Line
Juvedérm and Restylane cosmetic filler helps retain your skin’s volume, pliability, and shape. When injected into the targeted area, it helps reduce or soften the appearance of moderate to severe facial lines around the forehead, mouth, and nose.
It can also help minimize scars or plump lips that have thinned due to aging, although results can vary.
Over time, your skin loses elasticity, which contributes to moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. While serums and creams work on the skin’s surface, Juvederm and Restylane cosmetic filler adds volume to smooth these lines and folds, to help give you the subtle, long-lasting results you want.
Some people simply have naturally thin lips and just want to achieve a fuller appearance. Other people have noticed their lips thinning over time and may also have seen vertical lip lines become more noticeable.
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF FILLERS?
Because our fillers are formulated with hyaluronic acid, they are biocompatible with the human body. The dermal filler substance is readily absorbed and synthesized by the body. Side effects are typically mild and temporary, like:
- Pain or soreness
- Lumps or bumps
WHAT IF I DON'T LIKE THE RESULTS?
Almost everyone loves the final results. But for those with concerns about not liking the results, the cosmetic fillers can be dissolved.
SkinPen® Collagen Induction Therapy
WHAT IS SKINPEN?
SkinPen, also known as collagen induction therapy or micro-needling, stimulates your skin’s natural ability to repair itself and produce new collagen and elastin for healthier, younger looking skin. SkinPen is extremely versatile and can be used on all parts of the body: face, neck, décolleté, arms, legs, abdomen and back. Microscopic channels are created which allow for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair mechanism. SkinPen can reverse years of sun damage, improve acne & surgical scars, reduce pore size and enhance the overall appearance of aging skin.
What should I expect after treatment?
After the procedure, the skin will be red and flushed in appearance in a similar way to moderate sunburn. You may also experience skin tightness and mild sensitivity to touch on the area being treated. Total healing time depends on the severity of the damaged skin and the depth of the repair process required. On average, patients are pink for two to four days. Some patients heal completely in 24 hours.
When will I see the results?
Most people notice healthier looking skin immediately. The natural repair process of the skin continues to progress over the course of several weeks. Dermal collagen remodeling takes place over time and it will continue to improve for up to 6 months after treatment.
What should I do to prepare for this treatment?
Within 2 weeks prior to your treatment discontinue the following: waxing, depilatory use, electrolysis, laser hair removal.
Purpose: Restore Glow. Remove dead layers of skin. Reverse signs of aging.
