More beautiful, more youthful, more YOU!
When you smile, laugh, frown, or look puzzled, you contract the muscles of your face. Over time, these contractions produce furrows and wrinkles in the skin, especially around the eyes, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead. These lines can make you look older, sad, angry or tired. BOTOX treatments can help prevent you from deepening these lines and erase these signs of aging, leaving you looking younger and more refreshed
Although many people think of BOTOX as being a dermatology or plastic surgery product, it actually began as an ophthalmology treatment in 1989. Cosmetically desirable effects of BOTOX were first discovered by ophthalmologists treating patients for eye muscle disorders. The serendipitous discovery of cosmetic benefits occurred when these ophthalmologists observed the softening of patients’ frown lines following treatment for eye muscle conditions, leading to clinical trials and subsequent FDA approval for cosmetic use in 2002.
Even though BOTOX is not a surgical procedure, it is very important to choose a highly experienced and qualified physician. Be sure to insist that a qualified physician perform your procedure and not some office staff member. Our doctors are intimately familiar with BOTOX having successfully treated hundreds of patients in our office. Not only that, we also take the time to talk with each candidate before beginning the procedure to find out what he or she wants to achieve so that patients can be happy with their smoother, younger looking faces.
Over time, permanent furrows and deep wrinkles develop in the skin as a result of aging, overuse, and constant muscle contractions. These lines can make you look older, sad, angry, or tired. Fortunately, dermal fillers, such as Juvederm injectable gel, can erase these signs of aging and restore a younger, more refreshed appearance.
Juvederm is an FDA-approved gel that restores volume to the skin while smoothing away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. This injection is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin, which adds volume and hydration. Juvederm is extremely smooth so it injects easily and produces immediate, natural-looking results.
People can achieve a fuller, younger appearance while still maintaining the natural features that define who they are. Juvederm is most effective in reducing the appearance of nasolabial folds, the lines that run from the bottom of the nose to the corner of the mouth on both sides of the face.
The results of a Juvederm injection are visible immediately after the procedure, and will continue to improve over the next few days. Results are expected to last six to nine months, but in some cases may last longer.
Latisse is the first and only FDA approved treatment for inadequate or insufficient eyelashes. Latisse is a breakthrough treatment to enhance eyelash prominence by increasing length, thickness, and darkness. Available only by prescription, Latisse is a once-daily treatment applied to the base of the upper eyelashes. Patients using Latisse can expect to experience longer, fuller, and darker eyelashes in as little as four weeks, with full results in twelve to sixteen weeks.
Pelleve is a unique, non-invasive wrinkle treatment that uses radiowave technology to tighten sagging skin and reverse the effects of aging for a rejuvenated, younger-looking appearance. Heat energy within the Pelleve system warms the deep layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production and promote tissue contraction for improved skin quality and appearance. As one of the only wrinkle treatments approved by the FDA, most patients who undergo the Pelleve procedure achieve effective, natural-looking results. Pelleve is available only from a trained physician and is most effective when performed by someone who is highly skilled and experienced in this treatment. We are proud to offer Pelleve treatments to our patients as an effective, affordable, and nonsurgical solution to correct unwanted lines and wrinkles on the skin.
Blepharoplasty can rejuvenate puffy, sagging, or tired-looking eyes by removing excess fat, skin, and muscle from the upper and/or lower eyelids. Blepharoplasty can be combined with BOTOX or Juvederm treatments to raise the eyebrows or reduce the appearance of wrinkles, crow’s feet, or dark circles under the eyes.
The procedure is usually performed with local anesthesia and the incisions are hidden in the creases of the eyelids. The surgeon removes excess tissue through these incisions and then stitches them closed with fine sutures. These sutures are then removed after several days. The effects of this surgery can last for many years.
