We offer many options for non-surgical facial rejuvenation. Choose from injectable wrinkle treatments and dermal fillers to help you look naturally younger and well-rested. Please view the list below to find out more about how injectable treatments can give you a natural-looking, more youthful face.
BOTOX®Cosmetic injections erase wrinkles by immobilizing muscles in specific facial areas such as the forehead and around the eyes. This causes the muscles that form vertical forehead frown creases and crow’s-feet to relax and minimizes the appearance of these signs of aging. BOTOX®Cosmetic injections result in smoother and younger looking skin in the face and neck area without surgery.
BOTOX®Cosmetic is an FDA-approved substance, which is injected directly into the frown muscle or the wrinkle area. Within 24-72 hours the muscles will relax and the wrinkles and frown disappear. The frustrated, tired and angry look on the face will disappear and the patient will look younger with a smoother skin.
It takes few minutes to inject, and its effects last for few months (3-6 months). The treatment has to be repeated as the wrinkles or frown will re-appear. With repeated injection the effects tend to stay longer.
How Parentheses appear.
As you age, your skin changes. For example, it reduces production of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). Over time, the loss of HA in your skin results in facial wrinkles and folds, like those “parentheses” lines around your mouth.
JUVEDERM® injectable gel replaces the HA our skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds. A breakthrough in HA dermal fillers, JUVEDERM® is the first smooth-consistency HA gel and the only HA filler that’s FDA approved to last up to a year.
Everyone will notice, but no one will know.
You can experience the benefits of JUVEDERM® injectable gel in a quick, in-office procedure. During treatment, Maria Fotis, our licensed nurse injector, will inject JUVEDERM® under your skin in precise locations to instantly smooth out the wrinkles and folds on your face. You’ll see the difference immediately!
What makes JUVEDERM® Injection different?
While other HA fillers on the market have a more granular consistency, JUVEDERM® injectable gel is the first smooth-consistency Ha GEL. This is due to an innovative manufacturing process called HYLACROSS technology. HYLACROSS gives JUVEDERM® Injection its unique smooth-gel properties as well as an optimal gel structure that holds up over time. That’s why JUVEDERM® injectable gel is the only HA filler that’s FDA Aapproved to last up to 1 year.
High patient preference
When JUVEDERM® Injection was tested in a clinical setting among people who didn’t know which filler they were getting, nearly 90% stated a preference for JUVEDERM®.
What you can expect during and after JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel treatment
Wrinkle correction with JUVEDERM® is a quick, in-office procedure with immediate results and no downtime. Common side effects with JUVEDERM® injectable gel usually are mild or moderate. At your initial consultation, we will go over the risks and benefits of injectable treatments and help you decide if JUVEDERM® is a good choice for you.
Juvéderm VOLUMA™ XC, is a new filler formulated specifically to add volume and subtle lift to all three areas of the cheeks: the apple, the apex, and hollow.
Results are instant and can last up to 2 years
One of the reasons we are impressed with VOLUMA is that the results last a long time—up to 2 years for most patients. This makes it an excellent, cost-effective option to address early signs of aging around the cheeks without needing to return for follow-up injections every few months. Treatment only takes about 15-30 minutes, and you’ll notice an improvement in the shape and volume of your cheeks immediately after leaving our office.
What makes VOLUMA the only filler of its kind:
Just like regular Juvéderm, VOLUMA is a soft, smooth gel made from hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that’s already in your skin. However, the hyaluronic acid particles in VOLUMA are structured to be placed a little more deeply under your skin and to provide a natural, subtle lift at the same time. VOLUMA is the only injectable filler FDA approved for restoring volume and lift to the cheeks, and so far our patients are thrilled with their results.
Who is a good candidate for VOLUMA?
VOLUMA can help to restore fullness to cheeks that look sunken or slightly drawn due to aging. For younger patients, it can help enhance cheeks that have always looked a little flat, helping to balance your facial features. It is an excellent temporary, yet long-lasting option for patients who want noticeable, but not dramatic changes to their cheek contour.
What to expect during & after treatment:
VOLUMA injections are performed in our office, and can be completed within the time of a normal lunch break. VOLUMA has a small amount of lidocaine built in to help keep you comfortable, and most patients describe feeling sensations of pinching and pressure during treatment. You can return to your daily activities with little to no downtime, and the most common side effects—redness, tenderness, mild bruising and swelling—should dissipate within 2 weeks of treatment.
