Neuromodulators - Botox & Dysport

Perhaps the most popular cosmetic procedure, injection of neuromodulators such as Botox and Dysport has helped millions of men and women improve the appearance of facial aging. Because of its widespread use, it is easy to forget that injection of neuromodulators is a medical treatment that must be administered carefully by a licensed medical professional who understands the nuances of the underlying facial muscles actions and the appropriate preparation and application of the injectable medication to improve the appearance of wrinkles. 

Neuromodulators are a class of injectable products that can temporarily (for three to six months) relax overactive muscles and soften the appearance of certain wrinkles. Neuromodulators block the nerve impulses that enable the muscle contractions responsible for creating expression lines on the face. They can smooth existing lines and may prevent expression lines from forming. These medications have been tested in clinical trials and are FDA approved to relax the deep creases between the eyebrows. These injections are an effective technique for combating external signs of aging, such as wrinkles, from repetitive muscle actions created by facial expression. The result is a relaxed and softened appearance and thus reduction in wrinkle visibility.

Neuromodulators can be used to treat such areas as:

  • Frown lines (the 11’s)
  • Horizontal forehead creases
  • Crow’s feet
  • Lip lines
  • Chin dimpling
  • Overactive neck muscles (platysmal banding)

BOTOX

Botox injections typically only take a few minutes and do not require anesthesia. Results can take as many as seven days before the full benefit is visible and lasts approximately three to six months. Effects become more substantial over time as the process is repeated.

DYSPORT

Dysport is similar to Botox in its purpose and delivery. Both are derived from Botulinum toxin type A proteins and last approximately three to six months. Dysport has the advantage of a quicker onset time. Please consult your doctor to discuss which option best addresses your goals.

Kybella

Excess fatty tissue can accumulate below the jaw line as a result of aging, genetics, or weight gain.  This area can be very stubborn. Even with diet and exercise, submental fat may be difficult to get rid of. Created from Deoxycholic Acid, Kybella™  is a naturally occurring molecule that is used by the body to help in the breakdown and absorption of unwanted fat.  Kybella is a new FDA-approved treatment that can dissolve fat under the chin to create a more elegant neck line.  The result can be achieved after a series of three to five treatments.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is derived from the patient’s blood and contains high concentrations of platelets and the patient’s natural growth factors.  It can be injected into the scalp to help restore the health and fullness of hair as well as reverse the appearance of early hair loss.  It can also be applied topically to the skin after laser resurfacing or micro-needling to help with acne scarring and early aging signs.Eclipse PRP® is a proprietary PRP kit and system based on blood separation according to density using a unique separation gel. The PRP platform is available with an 11 mL PRP collection tube or 22 mL high concentration collection tube. The system allows for the preparation of pure Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) with optimal platelet concentrations and cellular content. Virtually all Red Blood Cells (RBC) are eliminated from PRP and the concentration of pro-inflammatory Granulocytes (GRs) is highly reduced.

Facial Fillers

FILLER INJECTIONS

Injectable fillers are effective for improving ‘static’ wrinkles which are visible at rest. Fillers differ from each other in their component material, reversibility, particle size, viscosity and expected duration of effect. The major benefit of injectable fillers is that, except for minor bruising, they require little or no downtime and most deliver immediate visible results. Certain characteristics of each filler material may make it more favorable for use in certain areas of the face. Please consult with your doctor to discuss which filler is right for you and your cosmetic goals.

Hyaluronic acid is composed of a naturally occurring substance in the human body.  It is the main component of a number of injectable fillers. There are numerous available injectable fillers made of Hyaluronic acid including: JUVEDERM®, JUVEDERM® XC, Voluma® , RESTYLANE® , RESTYLANE® SILK, RESTYLANE® LIFT, and Belotero. A unique benefit of this class of injectable is that its effects can be reversed and the product can be dissolved if a patient is not happy with the result.

JUVEDERM®XC & JUVEDERM® ultra XC

A popular hyaluronic acid filler, Juvederm is FDA approved for injection in the nasolabial folds and lips. In addition, it can also help the appearance of mild to moderate lines in the chin, marionette lines, jowls and jaw line. Results are expected to last six months or longer.

JUVEDERM® Voluma XC

Voluma is a hyaluronic acid filler that can be used to contour and volumize the malar region to create the appearance of higher cheekbones. Results with Voluma may last up to 2 years.

RESTYLANE® RESTYLANE® SILK

Restylane and Restylane Silk are also made of hyaluronic acid. Restylane is FDA approved for injection in the nasolabial folds. It can also be helpful in improving the appearance of lines around the mouth, tear trough hollows beneath the eyes and enhancement of lips. Restylane injections typically last 6-9 months.

RESTYLANE® LYFT

Similar to Restylane and Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft is also a gel made of hyaluronic acid. Restylane Lyft can be used to enhance and contour the cheek bones.

RADIESSE®

Radiesse is a calcium-based volumizing dermal filler that is used to fill deeper lines, especially in the nasolabial fold region. Radiesse particles are larger than hyaluronic acid. As a result, its effect may be longer lasting (up to 18 months). However, because of the larger particle size, it is not suitable for finer lines or delicate areas such as the lips.

SCULPTRA

Sculptra is a unique facial injectable product made of poly L lactic acid (PLLA), a synthetic biodegradable polymer. PLLA is found in dissolvable sutures that have been used for decades. Sculptra does not act like other dermal fillers; it is a bio activator. Once it is injected, the solution it is suspended in is rapidly absorbed in the body within 1-2 days. The PLLA molecules then work by stimulating the body to produce new collagen at the sites of injection. Over the 6-8 weeks following injection, the body generates new collagen in the area that replaces the lost volume and restores the fullness of youth. At 6-8 weeks, your doctor may recommend an additional treatment. Because Sculptra stimulates the body to produce its own collagen, once full correction is achieved, the results can last up to 2-3 years.
