Minimally Invasive Procedures
Below is a discussion of some, but not all of the procedures and treatments offered at our clinic. If your desired procedure is not mentioned, please check with us, as it is impossible to list every possible procedure.
BOTOX® (ALWAYS $8.99 USD PER UNIT)AND DYSPORT
Botox® treatments are the leaders in aesthetic/cosmetic procedures, and are performed world wide. Botox® treatments are considered to be safe, effective methods to treat signs of aging (wrinkles).The most common areas for Botox® treatment include horizontal forehead furrows, vertical lines in between the eyebrows, small wrinkles or "crows feet" around the eyes, and vertical "frown lines". After the physician analyzes and determines the specific facial areas for the most effective Botox® treatment, ice will be applied to each area prior to the injection of Botox®. The ice creates a slight "numbing" effect, providing significant comfort during the injection process. The result is the relaxation of the facial muscles allowing the wrinkled skin to smooth out. Each Botox® treatment lasts approximately 3 to 6 months, after which the treatment can be repeated. Maximum results will be noticed in approximately 5 days after the treatment. There is no "down time" associated with Botox® treatment and minimal post-procedure guidelines. Other benefits of Botox® procedures include benefits that are not cosmetic in nature. Some of these benefits include improvement of excessive sweating of hands, feet and underarms. Botox® treatments have also been effective in providing relief from headaches in some cases.
RESTYLANE® AND JUVIDERM
Restylane is a crystal-clear, non-animal, biodegradable gel that is based upon a natural substance known as hyaluronic acid. The gel is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. Results are instantaneous and produce a long lasting and natural enhancement. Restylane treatment is gentle and safe for your skin. The smoothing out of folds and wrinkles by adding volume can make an enormous improvement in one's appearance. The use of restylane allows for facial rejuvenation without the use of foreign elements. The treatment is fast and safe, leaving no scars or other traces on the face. A local anesthesia is used for minimal discomfort. Restylane wrinkle treatment is long lasting, but not permanent. You have the option to assess your appearance, as the length of time treatment maintains, as it's effect may vary from individual to individual. Factors such as age, skin type, lifestyle and muscle activity are some of the reasons for this variance. You, along with your aesthetic physician can prepare a plan for regular future treatments in order to maintain the results. Typically, patients choose to have a follow-up treatment 6-12 months after the initial treatment.
