Injectables

Botox® and Dysport

Botox® and Dysport are two treatments that work to reverse the visible signs of aging by relaxing the muscles beneath the skins surface.  Botox® and Dysport are  the only injectables that can effectively treat the formation of wrinkles and deeper lines.  Wrinkles form over time as a result of repeated muscle contractions or rather facial expressions over the years.  After Botox®, you would be surprised how the areas of injection smooth out your skin and give you a younger looking appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions

Post procedure instructions? // We advise every patient who receives a Botox® treatment to abstain from activity for 4 hours. Be careful not to lay down or apply pressure to your face.

What is the treatment like? // Treatments are quick and minimally invasive. Discomfort is also minimal. No anesthesia is required, although very sensitive clients may opt to numb the area with a cold pack or numbing cream prior to injection. There is no down time.

Will I be able to make facial expressions? // Yes. Of course you are looking for visible results, but Botox® will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you’ve “had work done.” The muscle activity that causes, for example, frown lines between the brows are temporarily blocked by Botox. After the treatment you can still frown and look surprised, just without the wrinkles and lines between your brows.

How many units of Botox® will I need? // The number of units needed per area can vary depending upon the desired outcome and degree of lines/wrinkles being treated. On average, the forehead for example, may need 10-40 units. The best way to determine how many units are needed is to set up a face to face consultation.

Do you dilute your Botox®? Botox® comes freeze dried powdered form. Therefore, it must have a dilute to make it injectable. Our practice uses the recommended mixture ratio, which is 1cc per 100u. This reduces the risk of problems and adds to longevity.


Dermal Fillers

Restylane and Juvederm

Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process.  Every smile, frown and laugh contributes to the formation of subtle fine lines in the face.  There is a way to prevent and smooth fine lines and wrinkles through a family of products designed to be injected for superficial to deep lines and wrinkles.  In addition, as we age we our fat pads shift, we lose volume due to bone loss, fat loss and skin thinning. Placing volume back into the midface creates a youthful look again.

0-2 days | swelling can be up to 1 - 2 weeks

What it treats

Restylane and Juvederm can last for up to one year. However, most patients experience the best results for 6-10 months depending on the specific procedure. Depending on the client, this time period can fluctuate. For the best results, we suggest repeat injections to fully optimize your results.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do the injections hurt? // Restylane and Juvederm is injected using an fine needle, resulting in minimal discomfort. To assure your comfort during the procedure, a topical or local anesthetic may be used, along with ice packs. Most fillers are infused with lidocaine to insure a comfortable treatment.

What are the possible side effects? // The most common side effects are redness, swelling and bruising. These side effects are generally mild and last a short time. We take all precautions to avoid, prevent and treat bruises.

If I don’t like my results is it reversible? // It is rare for a client to want their filler reversed, but it does give peace of mind to know that reversal is possible.

LIGHT PEELS: Light peels, which exfoliate only the outer layer of skin (epidermis), can help improve uneven pigmentation, fine lines, acne and dry skin. After a light peel, there may be some redness, irritation and dryness followed by scaling that ends in 3-7 days.

MEDIUM PEELS: Medium-deep peels can target acne scars, wrinkles and smooth uneven skin texture by removing damaged skin cells from both the epidermis, as well as the upper layers of the dermis. For medium-deep peels, there will be more intense redness (like sunburn) and possible swelling. The skin may darken and form crust that peels off over a period of 7-14 days revealing new, brighter looking skin.

DEEP PEELS: Deep peels can achieve the most dramatic, long lasting results, but involves significantly more downtime. After any peel, it is important to avoid any unnecessary sun exposure and always where sun protection.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the differences between laser hair removal, electrolysis and waxing? While all options are fantastic for both temporary and long term results, the type of patient that is a good candidate is the most important part in receiving the most ideal results. Laser hair removal provides patients with permanent hair reduction. The ideal person will have dark pigmented hair as the laser is attracted to the pigment in the hair. This is how it targets and damages the hair in its follicle. Hair must be shaven prior to treatment. It is very important not to have any tan, including self-tanner, because the laser could pick up on the pigmentation in the skin and not just the hair and lead to the risks of pigment changes in the skin. We can treat patients with darker skin tones as long as the hair is darker than the skin. Generally, six treatments, done 4-6 weeks apart, are recommended for best results. This provides each phase of hair growth with more than one laser treatment.

Forever Clear BBL is a cutting-edge acne treatment that uses the power of light to comfortably and effectively clear acne without creams or medicine. BBL is the world’s most powerful IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) device delivering light energy deep into your skin to stimulate and regenerate your skin cells, leaving you with clear, healthy, radiant skin. Nearly 50 million Americans suffer from acne - a staggering 95% of all people experiencing acne at some point in their lives*

As the most common skin condition in the U.S., acne is caused when hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells. While it’s a common rite of passage in adolescence, acne can also become persistent and unsightly, affecting millions of adults — both physically and emotionally.

Treatment includes

Step 1: Skin is first treated with BLUE BBL light to eliminate acne-causing bacteria at its source, deep down in the pores.

Step 2: Skin is then treated with YELLOW BBL light to reduce the inflammation and acne-associated redness to give you healthy, luminous skin.

Step 3: For added benefit, the skin is then treated with SkinTyte II™ using INFRA-RED light in rapid, gentle pulses to initiate the body’s natural healing process.
