Botox and Dysport are FDA- approved products that relax the muscles underneath the skin in order to soften the lines between your brows, forehead, and crow’s feet around the eyes. The procedure is quick, easy, and painless. You will start to see improvements of the wrinkles as soon as three days later with full results happening between 7-10 days. Both products typically last 3-4 months.
Dermal fillers work by restoring volume, fullness, softening fine lines/wrinkles, and stimulating collagen production. As we age, collagen gradually disappears causing our skin to lose moisture and elasticity. Dermal fillers can erase years off of your appearance by diminishing facial lines, lifting and or re-shaping the cheeks, jawlines, and lips. We utilize the fillers from both Juvederm and Restylane product lines. Filler appointments typically take about an hour from start to finish with initial results seen immediately post injection and maximum results within two to three weeks. Fillers typically last between nine months up to two years depending on the type and consistency of filler used.
Kybella is a series of injections that work to permanently destroy the fat cells under our chins-commonly referred to as “double chin”. The number of treatment sessions varies based on the amount of fat under the chin and your treatment goals. Kybella also has many off label uses for removal of unwanted fat pockets on the body.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections are a treatment for the face or body that stimulates new collagen, enhances microcirculation, and regrowth of new healthy skin and tissue. PRP is harvested from your own blood, providing a naturally occurring injectable for your skin. PRP has enhanced growth factors and concentrated platelets that can be utilized for facial rejuvenation, hair loss/restoration (alopecia) and improvement of the skin on the neck and chest. This is a good option for someone who desires a more natural approach to anti-aging. PRP can be combined with microneedling.
PDO threads (solid filler polydioxanone suture) are absorbable sutures that are strategically placed in the subdermal layer of the skin to generate natural collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production. PDO sutures provide immediate visible lift and smoothing with long term benefits of bio-stimulation of collagen. Results last up to 12-24 months. This treatment is used to lift sagging skin, improve neck lines, increase facial volume, improve smile lines, enhance skin tone, and improve acne scars. PDO threads have very few contraindications with minimal side effects and down time. PDO threads can be used in conjunction with neuromodulators and fillers for optimal improvements in the skin’s appearance.
