Botox is the number ONE non-surgical aesthetic procedure performed in the United States to treat wrinkles in several places including frown lines, crow's feet, and forehead lines. You have probably heard friends or family talk about Botox, but you still have not tried it. We are here to put your fears to rest about Botox and answer the many questions or concerns you may have.
This injectable treatment for wrinkles is made from the same neurotoxin (botulinum toxin type A) as Botox. Dysport (formally Reloxin) received the approval of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use as a wrinkle treatment in the spring of 2009, but it has been smoothing out facial folds and lines in Europe, South America, and elsewhere for several years. Like Botox, this injectable was originally developed in the 1990s to treat neuromuscular disorders.
Juvederm®, approved by the FDA in 2006, is an injectable gel filler made of hylauronic acid, a naturally occurring complex in the body. Aging, combined with sun and other environmental damage, can cause the natural hyaluronic acid to become depleted. This results in sunken skin and facial wrinkles, like those around the nose and mouth (often called parentheses). Juvederm® can help replace lost hylauronic acid and make the skin appear suppler and smoother.
We've been treating our aesthetic patients with dermal fillers for many years, and Juvederm Voluma™ is one of the best we've ever laid a glove on.
Voluma is specifically designed to address one of the most significant signs of aging - volume loss in the the cheeks. All sorts of bad things begin to happen as we lose volume in this area due to aging. We see lines form around the mouth, the jowls become more pronounced, and our once full and youthful faces begin to deflate.
Sculptra®, one of the newest and longest-lasting dermal fillers on the market, is made from poly-L-lactic acid, a synthetic but biocompatible (not harmful to the body) material that has a decades-long history of being used safely for a variety of medical purposes, including threads for surgical stitches. In 2009, the Food and Drug Administration approved Sculptra for cosmetic purposes, although the filler had been approved earlier (2004) to add volume to the cheeks of H.I.V.-positive patients with facial fat loss (lipoatrophy). The filler has been used cosmetically in Europe since 1999, where it's called New-Fill.
Restylane® is an injectable gel made from hyaluronic acid, a natural sugar that enables skin to retain its shape and volume. Hyaluronic acid is a hydrophilic substance, meaning it attracts water. Once injected into the skin, the hyaluronic acid molecules in Restylane bind to the body's natural stores of water, gradually "plumping up" the skin - and giving it a smoother, more youthful appearance.
Restylane Silk® is is the first and only FDA-approved product specifically designed for subtle lip enhancement and the smothing of wrinkles and lines around the mouth. The lips and the lines around the mouth, like other areas of the face, show signs of aging as you get older. This often results in lip thinning, lost shape and an increase in vertical lines above the lip. Restylane Silk is designed specifically to provide natural-looking results in these particular areas by using smaller, smoother particles than those used in other Restylane® products.
Perlane is made from non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid (NASHA) gel. Since hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in skin and other tissue, there is no need for a skin test when using this type of filler. The difference between Restylane and Perlane is that the molecule in Perlane is 4x larger, so it takes the body longer to break the product down. Perlane is placed deeper in the dermis and has the ability to fill folds with less material. Perlane typically lasts 6-12 months.
Beautiful long dark eyelashes have been a sign of beauty throughout history. Unfortunately, not all of us have been blessed with such eyelashes. Women have used sticky glues, messy mascaras, and potentially dangerous curling tools to achieve those beautiful long, thick eyelashes.
With the discovery of a revolutionary product such as Latisse®, you no longer have to waste time on inconvenient and uncomfortable products. Latisse® has been clinically proven to help grow fuller, darker and longer eyelashes.
Latisse® is a topical solution applied along the skin at the base of the upper eyelashes at nighttime much like an eyeliner.
Latisse® is a prescription and therefore does require a consultation. During the consultation, our physician will determine whether you are a candidate for Latisse®, go over how to use Latisse®, and review the possible side effects. You will also receive a prescription for a 3 month supply (enough time for you to see the results) during your consultation.
