Botox

What Is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic that is a prescription medication used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people 18 to 65 years of age for an average of three months.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered by a healthcare professional as a simple, nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles between the brows. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows.  Botox can also be injected into the forehead and crow's feet areas but it is considered an "off label" use by the FDA and to be used at the discretion of the physician. 

How does BOTOX® Cosmetic work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of the "11s," the moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines). It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows.

When will I see results from a BOTOX® 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 4 months. Individual results may vary.

How long does BOTOX® Cosmetic last?
Visible results have been shown to last up to 4 months. Your own results may vary – be sure to talk to your healthcare provider about what you can expect and when to schedule your next appointment.

No downtime: With Dysport, there is little to no downtime after injection. Ask your doctor about any precautions you should take after your treatment. Call your doctor or get medical help right away if you have any problems swallowing, speaking, or breathing. If this happens, do not drive a car, operate machinery, or do other dangerous activities.

Juvederm

JUVÉDERM® is the smooth gel filler that is used to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose, fill the tear drop under the eye area, smooth the lip line and add volume. With just one treatment, you'll get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year.

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 like JUVÉDERM® XC 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.

RADIESSE™

RADIESSE™ wrinkle filler, proven to stimulate the growth of your own natural collagen.

The ideal way to achieve wrinkle reduction is by replenishing lost volume. With RADIESSE™ wrinkle filler, you welcome back your own natural collagen to smooth out the signs of aging. The unique formulation of RADIESSE™ wrinkle filler stimulates collagenesis – the production of new collagen – which results in increased volume that may last a year or more in many patients.

Why is young skin so supple and full? In part because of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps provide fullness and elasticity.

Why is young skin so supple and full? In part because of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps provide fullness and elasticity.

There are many factors that contribute to skin aging, one of which is a loss of hyaluronic acid. As a result, your skin can begin to develop wrinkles and folds. The good news is you can do something about it. You can use the Restylane family of products to reveal a younger-looking you.

The Restylane family of products includes Restylane, Restylane-L®, Perlane®, and Perlane-L®. These products can be used individually to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds), cheeks, lips and under eye areas.

Perlane

Perlane, like Restylane, is a dermal filler and is a long-lasting gel that, once injected into the skin with an ultra-fine needle, lifts and adds volume and helps diminish fine lines. Made of a natural substance called hyaluronic acid, it is a completely safe treatment. The hyaluronic acid in Perlane simply supplements the body's age-depleted hyaluronic acid to plump-up the lip or to raise the skin and 'fill in' the particular wrinkle being treated.

The difference between Restylane and Perlane is the size of the particle (with Perlane containing more hyaluronic acid). This means that Perlane does a better job of filling deep lines while Restylane is used in fine lines or in thin skinned people.

These products last for between six and nine months, although individuals will have varied results.

Perlane is an excellent treatment for wrinkle correction, lip enhancement, smile lines and deep folds.

 

Coolsculpting

CoolSculpting® is the coolest, most innovative, non-surgical and natural way to quickly lose those annoying bumps and bulges of stubborn fat.

It's called stubborn fat on purpose, because no matter how much pain you put into eating healthy and exercising, there is no gain. It's virtually impossible to lose that muffin top or love handles. You're forced to live with them or consider surgery. Now there is another option.  CoolSculpting is ideal for people who want fat reduction but don't desire surgery.  Here's the skinny: developed by Harvard scientists, this unique, patented, clinically proven procedure involves freezing fat cells without damage to skin or surrounding structures.  No surgery.  No anesthesia.  No stitches.  No lasers.  No down time.  After your treatment you can get on with your busy day.     

Typically, you'll see a noticeable reduction of fat in the treated area after one visit. You can lose even more with additional appointments. What does that mean? Simply put, your clothes fit better. You look better. The fat cells are naturally eliminated from your body over the following few months, leaving you feeling more like yourself again. It's totally non-surgical, FDA-cleared, and there's usually no downtime whatsoever -- unless you count reading a book or checking email during your appointment as downtime. How cool is that? And what's more is there are no pills or supplements and as long as you maintain your weight with normal diet and exercise, your long-term results should remain stable. Hello, you again.

Clear + Brilliant™

Treatments by: Leslie, Pennisi, RN, BSN or Michelle Rife, Aesthetician.

What is Clear + Brilliant? Clear + Brilliant is a unique treatment that uses safe, fractional laser technology to address early signs of aging skin and help to prevent them.

How does Clear + Brilliant work? Clear + Brilliant is a gentle laser that refreshes your skin from the inside out. The laser energy creates millions of microscopic treatment zones in your skin, replacing damaged skin with healthy, younger looking tissue.

How long is the treatment? Clear + Brilliant treatments take about 20 minutes. We ask that you reserve one hour for your appointment.

How many treatments will I need? The number of treatments you will need depends on your desired outcome. In recent studies, consumers reported visible improvements after 4-6 treatments. We will discuss a personalized treatment regimen with you.

Who can benefit from Clear + Brilliant treatments? Clear + Brilliant is a beneficial treatment for women and men of all ages and skin types, who are looking to prevent the signs of aging, help address early signs of aging or maintain the look of their skin.

What kind of results can I expect? Your skin may feel softer and have improved tone, texture and radiance:

  • Naturally radiant and glowing skin
  • Visibly illuminated skin tone
  • Renewed, ultra-soft and smoother texture
  • Skin that looks clear and brilliant

When do the results appear, and how long do they last? The results of treatment are both immediate and progressive. A few days after the treatment, your skin will start to feel softer, look brighter and show more even tone. Results can last for months depending on your age, skin condition and how you protect your skin.

What will I look like immediately after the procedure? Can I go right back to work? Clear + Brilliant treatments are very gentle and are specifically designed to minimize the side effects of typical laser treatments. You may experience some redness and subtle inflammation right after the treatment.

These generally resolve within a few hours, but may last until the following day.

Does it hurt? Most patients describe an increased sensation of heat during the treatment. We will apply a topical anesthetic ointment before the procedure, which helps to minimize the discomfort during treatment. (Optional: We will also apply a cooling gel or cooling packs after the procedure to minimize any residual heat sensation.)

Who performs the procedure? Our staff has been extensively trained on the Clear + Brilliant treatments. In this office the procedure is performed by a RN and an aesthetician.

Can I avoid other cosmetic procedures if I do this? Each procedure has its own benefits. Clear + Brilliant is a great choice for rejuvenating your skin, helping to slow or prevent early signs of aging and maintain your skin - looking younger for longer.

Is it safe? The Clear + Brilliant treatment is very safe when used by a trained expert that will evaluate your skin and recommend the best course of treatment. Of course, as with any laser procedure there’s always some risk and/or downtime. Leslie and Michelle can discuss those with you during your consultation.

How much does the Clear + Brilliant treatment cost? The cost depends on the number of treatments you need for your desired results. We encourage you to come in for a consultation at which point we can give you a more precise idea of cost.
