Want to really reduce lines and wrinkles? BOTOX® Injections are a fast, painless and non-surgical solution offering incredible results, with little to no downtime. After a single visit for neurotoxins, your face will look years younger. Neurotoxin injections are made from botulinum toxin A, a therapeutic muscle-relaxing agent approved by the FDA for several different uses. When injected into the skin, it blocks the signals to the muscles that are responsible for the repetitive facial movements that cause fine lines and wrinkles (like crows feet from squinting). This results in a smoothing effect to the skin, for a younger and more refreshed appearance.
Dermal fillers work wonders on any skin no matter which stage of the aging process you are in. Dermal fillers come in several different formulations, each with their own properties and benefits. Young, healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called Hyaluronic Acid (HA). As we age, the sun and other factors can reduce the amount of HA in your skin. The lack of HA causes your skin to lose structure and volume. By using a dermal filler with HA, you are safely replacing the depleting HA and bringing back the lost volume, smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds.
WHAT IS SCULPTRA® AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
Sculptra® Aesthetic is made of injectable poly-L-Lactid acid. This substance is mixed with water, and local anesthetic and then injected into any areas of the face that are showing excessive signs of aging due to fat loss. Over the course of a few weeks, the body’s own collagen is stimulated to fill in depressions and wrinkles. A single injection will continue to stimulate collagen even up to three months after the procedure and can potentially last for two years.
Sculptra® has been safely used outside the United States since 1999 in over 150,000 patients under the trade names New-Fill™ and Sculptra®. This product has since been approved by the FDA for restoration and/or correction of the signs of facial fat loss (lipoatrophy) in people with human immunodeficiency virus. Today, Sculptra® Aesthetic is being widely used for cosmetic reasons by patients across the United States.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF SCULPTRA® TREATMENTS?
Sculptra® is used to achieve the following:
Diminish the appearance of facial aging by filling in hollows, wrinkles and depressions
Improve facial contours
Treat facial lipoatrophy
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR SCULPTRA® TREATMENT
Prior to treatment, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the patient’s face, numbing the skin. Sculptra® is then mixed with local anesthetic and injected in very small amounts to guarantee even distribution, into the area to be treated with a very fine needle so patients feel minimal discomfort.
Immediately following injection, an ice pack will be placed on the patient’s face to soothe any pain and minimize the potential for bruising or swelling. If you do experience redness at the injection site, this disappears shortly after, allowing most patients return to work immediately following the procedure. More extensive injections may create some bruising that can last for a week or so that can easily be covered with make-up.
Within four to six weeks, the effects of Sculptra® become apparent with continued improvement for up to three months per injection session. Patients usually require two or three injection sessions to attain the desired effect. Once achieved, the correction of facial aging and improvement in facial contour can last for up to two years.
What makes Radiesse® truly unique is the ability of the product to act as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. Radiesse uses calcium based microspheres to correct wrinkles and folds in the face and hands. The production of natural collagen continues for several months, which extends beyond the initial effect of Radiesse®. Best of all, the natural results are clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients, which means more value from each treatment and long-lasting results.
The NovaThread Lift is one of the most effective non-surgical treatments to correct loose facial skin. Age and the effects of gravity over time causes the skin to become lax and droop, creating unwanted lines, wrinkles, and creases. These effects can add years to a person’s appearance and negatively affect their confidence. NovaThreads were created to answer an unmet need in aesthetics, which is to provide a visibly lifted result without a surgical procedure. With the NovaThread Lift, patients can receive quick, natural, and beneficial results that shed years off of their appearance.
The procedure requires no cuts or incisions; it simply involves injections using sutures that will be safely absorbed into the skin. NovaThreads are dissolvable PDO sutures that come in a variety of textures and can be used on the face, neck, or anywhere else on the body that requires subtle lifting. Wherever the threads are placed, patients will be able to see immediate results.
