Botulinum Toxin (Xeomin, Botox, Dysport)

Botulinum Toxin (Xeomin, Botox, Dysport) Treatment Defined

Botulinum Toxin is one of the most popular temporary wrinkle removal techniques available for anyone from 18-65 years of age. A Botulinum Toxin procedure is actually the trade name of Botulinum Toxin Type A, a purified toxin produced by the bacterium clostridium botulinum. Though it doesn’t sound very pleasant, the procedure is a great way to soften or erase the wrinkles, expression lines (smile, frown), and fine lines that can accelerate the appearance of aging.

It works by relaxing the facial muscles that contract and cause wrinkles such as frown lines between the eyebrows and crows feet (fine wrinkles around the eyes). Over time these wrinkles will become permanent even when you are not frowning. You will be delighted to see how these wrinkles will smooth out over a few days and restore your face to a more youthful and relaxed look. Botulinum Toxin will dramatically improve (and often remove) horizontal forehead creases, scowl lines between your eyebrows, crow’s feet, and vertical wrinkles of your upper lip.

Take a look at men and women who’ve had Botulinum Toxin Cosmetic treatments, and see for yourself! One 10-minute treatment—a few tiny injections—and within days there’s a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, which can last up to 6 months. Results may vary.

Botulinum Toxin (Xeomin, Botox, Dysport) and Wrinkles

Dynamic wrinkles, such as crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles, are due to repetitive facial expressions. Weakening the muscles responsible for these facial expressions can dramatically improve these wrinkles. With Botulinum Toxin, these muscles can be weakened without detracting from your facial expressiveness.

Botulinum Toxin (Xeomin, Botox, Dysport)and Safety

Although it is technically a toxin, Botulinum Toxin has been used safely by ophthalmologists for over 10 years and has been used for wrinkle therapy since the early 1990’s, with no serious side effects documented in the hands of competent physicians. We’ve never had a single complication with Botulinum Toxin. Rest assured that the professionalism you expect and safety you need.

Prospective patients that are looking to relieve sagging skin are strongly encouraged to consider Suture Suspension minimally-invasive lifting, as it will provide results better than Botulinum Toxin that will last significantly longer.

DERMAPEN MICRONEEDLING / PRP

What Is DermaPen MicroNeedling / PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)

At the Beauty & Wellness Center, we use a technique in which we isolate a portion of our patients’ own blood to enhance the effectiveness of our treatments. Top professional athletes rely upon this regenerative procedure to keep their bodies moving & effective and you can as well.

 

How Does It Work

It works by our drawing a specimen of blood, we then put that through the centrifuge to isolate the blood plasma – a portion of whole blood that is rich in platelets and various non-cellular proteins known to be important in supporting wound healing and repair, such as growth factors and proteins important in stimulating cellular regeneration and in nourishing the tissues. This is known as “Platelet Rich Plasma” or, also called, “Autologous Conditioned Plasma.”

When we perform any invasive technique for rejuvenation, such as when we perform Dermapen® microneedling, or Viva® nano-fractional skin resurfacing, or when we perform autologous fat grafting or fat transfer, we can enhance the effectiveness of these treatments by also including Autologous Conditioned Platelets. The inclusion of PRP in our treatment requires only a very affordable additional fee of $400 to cover our cost for this service — we believe it to be well worth the additional cost. When we inject a joint with “cortisone” or bio-active filler, such as the soon-to-be-available Jaliren® product from RossPharma, we can also include PRP for enhanced effectiveness.

FACIAL FILLERS

Facial Fillers Defined

Radiesse®, Xeomin® and Belotero® are three examples of the newest technology in wrinkle treatments and facial enhancement without surgery.

Radiesse® Volumizing Filler

Natural collagen is what gives skin a smooth supple, youthful appearance. As you age, natural collagen breaks down, resulting in wrinkles and loss of face volume. The FDA Approved Radiesse is a Volumizing filler and an ideal choice because in addition to providing immediate volume correction, it also stimulates production of your own collagen.

This calcium-based dermal filler can be injected into the laugh lines (naso-labial fold) that stretch from your nose to the side of your mouth. Filler can also be used in the Marionette lines, corners of the mouth, chin wrinkle, and pre-jowel, yielding a healthier and more vital appearance. One of the main benefits of a calcium based filler is its incredible lifting capacity. The immediate results can be expected to last a year in most patients.

Belotero Balance®

Show your personality, not your age! Belotero Balance injectable gel is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler that helps smooth moderate to severe etched in lines and wrinkles, for a natural finished look.

Only Belotero Balance is created using the cohesive polydensified matrix (CPM) process. With this proprietary technology, Belotero Balance injectable gel evenly and completely blends into your skin, providing a natural look while maintaining normal movement and facial expressions. Common areas for treatment include; nasolabial folds, vertical lip lines, corner lines, smile lines, chin wrinkle.

Xeomin®

Xeomin® is a botulinum toxin which has a different and less immunogenic molecular structure from Botox® so it is less likely than Botox® to cause any type of allergic or irritation reaction. Otherwise it is functionally the same as Botox®. We use Xeomin® for our patients who prefer an injected neuromodulator for treatment of the frown lines and expression lines around the brow and eyes.

Facial Filler Risks

Unlike collagen injections, these second and third generation fillers are not based on animal extracts and have no risk of allergic reactions. Patients that are not candidates for fillers are those with recurrent herpes (cold sores), recurrent or active herpes (cold sores), Type I Diabetes Mellitus, pregnancy and many systemic diseases, as well as those that are on anti-coagulants.

Laser Photo Facials
Stop concealing your skin’s imperfections and get the glowing results you desire.  Shine the Light on Pre-mature Aging! Venus Versa is a powerful, non-invasive Intense Pulsed Light treatment that reverses the signs of the greatest cause of pre-mature aging … the sun.  It’s those ultraviolet  (UV) rays that are responsible for the embarrassing brown spots on your face, hands, chest and any other area that remains uncovered.  
 
There is other damage, as well:  enlarged pores, loss of texture and tone and skin discoloration.  Over time, the elastin fibers – which give your skin that firm, youthful, bounce-back, simply break down and your skin sags. Designed with you in mind, Venus Versa is totally safe, with minimal side-effects & downtime.  Lasting 15-20 minutes per procedure, results are noticeable from the first session and if brown spots are your only concern, two or three treatments might do it all. Brown spots (solar lentigines), surface spider veins, generalized redness, & rosacea all respond wonderfully to the IPL. The worse the pigment, the better the response, as the light is absorbed by the pigment (red or brown) and then the body’s own healing response removes the damaged pigment and replaces it with new, fresh unblemished skin. 
 
Typically, 5 treatment spaced 3 weeks apart are needed for best results; but this can vary greatly depending upon the individual.   Of course, treatment times always depend upon the area and severity of the concern.  With Maintenance visits scheduled throughout the year, what a joy to know that your skin will look firmer, smoother, younger with even color and radiant tone.  You can expect a bright youthful complexion, clear & fresh skin, & diminished fine lines and also reduced pore size
