Botox® has been used since the 1980s to treat a variety of medical conditions. It was later discovered to be highly effective in treating wrinkles and became a huge success in Medical Esthetics. Botox is FDA approved and works by weakening the muscle’s ability to move and create wrinkles. It is a temporary treatment lasting 3-4 months and is a very effective option for reducing the signs of aging. We also offer Dysport® and Xeomin® as an alternative to Botox, ask our provider for more details at your consultation.
Dermal fillers are used to enhance your facial features by restoring age-related volume loss. They also improve the contours of your skin by smoothing away moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. Some dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance within our body. Others are made of calcium hydroxyapatite which also helps stimulate natural collagen production. The length of time the results will last depends on the treatment location and the individual. Depending on the type of dermal filler used and the location treated, results last 6 months up to 2 years.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP is a concentrated preparation of one’s own blood platelets that is either injected into the skin or paired with procedures such as microneedling, profractional laser, or Halo laser in order to maximize your body’s own rejuvenative powers. PRP is abundant with growth factors, which promote cell regeneration, tissue remodeling, and reduce inflammation – all important elements in skin rejuvenation.
Kybella™ is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the treatment area under the chin to improve your profile. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
