What is a Botulinum Toxin?
Botulinum Toxins are prescription medicines such as BOTOX or Dysport that are injected into muscles and works by blocking nerve impulses. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows. Individual results may vary.
When will I see results from a BOTOX or Dysport Cosmetic treatment?
Within days, you may see a marked improvement in the moderate-to-severe frown lines between your brows. Lines continue to improve for up to 30 days, and results can last for up to four months. Individual results may vary.
How long do Botulinum Toxins (BOTOX/Dysport) last?
Visible results have been shown to last up to four months. Your own results may vary; be sure to talk to our doctor about what you can expect.
Is treatment with BOTOX or Dysport painful?
Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. Prior to injection, our doctor may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream. The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes.
Will I still be able to make facial expressions?
Although the results are visible, a treatment with BOTOX or Dysport will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you’ve “had work done.” The muscle activity that causes frown lines between the brows is temporarily reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.
What happens if I choose not to continue treatments?
If you do not continue treatments, the moderate-to-severe frown lines between your brows will gradually return to the way they looked before treatment.
Is BOTOX or Dysport expensive?
Our philosophy is to offer BOTOX or XEOMIN injections at an affordable price to encourage routine procedures. We often have promotions that even further reduce the cost.
Dermal Fillers are used to create volume in areas of the skin that have aged and wrinkled over time. They are used to plump lips and smooth out moderate-to-severe facial folds and wrinkles.
Where does it work?
Everyone’s skin ages differently and dermal fillers may be used to rejuvenate multiple problem areas. From smile lines to vertical lip lines, you can smooth away unwanted wrinkles and restore natural contours.
Young, healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). But as you age, sunlight and other factors can reduce the amount of HA in your skin. The lack of HA causes your skin to lose structure and volume, creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds, like those parentheses lines around your nose and mouth. Using a dermal filler is a safe and effective way to replace the HA your skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds.
Your skin consists of two layers known as the epidermis and the dermis. The epidermis, or outer layer of the skin, acts as the skin’s primary defense against the environment. The dermis, or innermost layer of the skin, is composed primarily of connective tissue and provides the skin with a support network. Most facial wrinkles and deeper nasolabial folds occur within the dermal layer of the skin.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally-occurring molecule. Much like a sponge, its primary function is to bind and absorb water, which creates volume in the face. In this way, HA can be thought of as the body’s internal moisturizer. But, as we age, HA diminishes, which contributes to the presence of lines and folds. Dermal fillers work to correct this by restoring HA in your skin, helping to diminish wrinkles and nasolabial folds.
Collagen is what gives volume, flexibility and strength to healthy, young skin. As a part of the aging process, your own natural collagen breaks down, diminishing facial volume and elasticity. This loss of elasticity and volume results in wrinkles, facial lines and skin laxity – all of which rob your skin of its youthful, fresh appearance.
Ideal wrinkle reduction is achieved by replenishing your skin's lost volume. Upon injection, RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler immediately provides the volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of aging because of the calcium-based microspheres and gel that comprise the product. But what's unique about RADIESSE Volumizing Filler is that it acts as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow.
