Facial Cosmetic Procedures
As we age, our skin changes. Over time, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles and folds form.
We offer our patients several facial fillers that can be injected to fill in deep creases or scars, improve facial contours and give body and definition to your lips. These fillers provide a fresh new look without surgery and include:
Restylane®, an injection procedure that can get rid of wrinkles and enhances areas of your face immediately. Areas include the lips, superficial lines around the mouth, forehead lines, and smile lines.
Juvéderm™ is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. The doctor 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).
The new Juvéderm™ XC formulation is enhanced with the local anesthetic lidocaine for greater patient comfort.
BOTOX Cosmetic™ injection is a wrinkle reduction procedure that can reduce or eliminate wrinkles in the face, including forehead lines, frown lines between the eyebrows and crow’s feet around the eyes. It is not surgery and there is no chance of scarring. It is safe, and you can resume all your activities immediately after treatment.
The number of injections depends on the amount of area being treated. Repeat injections may be recommended every three to four months during the first year to keep the muscles blocked and allow the skin to smooth out.
The injection process takes only about 15 minutes and results are immediate. Plus, there’s minimal recovery or downtime. So you can step into our office for treatment and step right back into your life.
