Call us today to set up a free consultation.
What It Is
Botox® injections are something that you have probably heard of. It works by relaxing the facial muscles that cause your skin to wrinkle and furrow causing lines. Over one million people have been treated since it was approved by the FDA in 2002. Botox® is the most affordable and effective treatment for frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead creases.
Botox® is also a very effective, non-surgical solution for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). It blocks the excess nerve impulses that trigger the unnecessary production of sweat on the hands, face, or upper body areas. Ask us about the advantages of Botox® injections over surgery.
Restylane® may not be as familiar to you. It has been used to treat over 3 million people in over 70 countries. It is a completely natural substance called hyaluronic acid, dermal filler that binds with water molecules. This allows it to keep its shape for up to six months. What makes Restylane® unique is its completely non-animal formula – NASHA or Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid. NASHA is completely compatible with human hyaluronic acid, unlike fat injections or bovine collagen injections. The treatments are virtually pain free and usually take less than an hour. You can return to work with results that appear almost immediately.
Juvéderm™ is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Your healthcare professional eases Juvéderm™ injectable gel under the skin to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds—the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).
These treatments instantly smooth away folds and wrinkles. It is particularly effective for the lines that appear between your nose and the edges of our mouth as time passes. This treatment eliminates those lines to recreate a much more youthful appearance in your face.
