OTHER PROCEDURES

BOTOX® Cosmetic

There are individuals who would like to enhance their appearance, but do not want to undergo surgery and want as little downtime as possible. Many individuals have turned to BOTOX® injections, a quick, virtually painless procedure. BOTOX® is a form of botulinum toxin that, when injected, temporarily paralyzes muscles that cause wrinkles. This treatment reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases, crow’s feet near the eyes and thick bands in the neck. BOTOX® treatments result in a youthful and more refreshed appearance.


BOTOX® injections take only a few minutes to an hour to be performed, depending on the size of the treatment area. Also with BOTOX® injections, there is little or no discomfort involved. Plus most patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately after receiving treatment. Generally, the effects of your BOTOX® injections should last about 3-6 months and further treatments may be advised. There are very few known side effects involved with BOTOX®. These include temporary bruising, and mild muscle aches.


RESTYLANE

Restylane is a biodegradable gel based on hyaluronic acid, a substance which occurs naturally in the skin. Since Restylane is based on a non-animal, naturally occurring substance, it reduces the risk of any allergic reaction, transmitting disease, or other complications from occurring. No skin test is required. When injected, it can smooth wrinkles and folds, give volume to your lips or give shape to your facial contours. Restylane treatment sessions take less than thirty minutes and patients can return to their normal routine soon after. The results are instantaneous and last anywhere from six to twelve months. Since Restylane is biodegradable, when it breaks down, it turns into water and carbon dioxide, and disappears without a trace from your body.
