Neurotoxins: BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are popular injectable treatments that can diminish frown lines, crow’s feet, and wrinkles caused by repetitive muscle movement in the face—like squinting, smiling, and laughing. Over time, these lines and wrinkles can become etched into the skin and cause a tired or angry facial expression. BOTOX® and Dysport® injections work by temporarily blocking the nerve signals that tell the facial muscle to contract. This relaxes the muscle and reduces the appearance and development of new wrinkles. The anti-aging effects of BOTOX® and Dysport® injections can help patients achieve a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance while also boosting self-confidence and maintaining a natural appearance. These treatments are quick and easy in-office procedures with little to no downtime and they can be true gamechangers in preventing and treating dynamic wrinkles and lines.
Injectable dermal fillers can be an optimal solution for diminishing signs of facial lines, wrinkles, and shadows while also restoring volume and fullness to facial features. This includes enhancement of the cheeks, diminishing shadowing in the midface and “smile lines,” smoothing contour of the jawline, enhancing thin lips, filling “smokers lines” around the lips, and filling dark shadows under the eyes or “tear troughs.” Dr Hrisomalos choses to inject hyaluronic acid fillers, which are safe and reversible along with being long-lasting. There are many different products with different safety profiles, consistencies, and indications which she has specifically chosen for her patients. Currently we offer products from the Restylane® and RHA® lines of specially formulated premiere fillers from Galderma and Revance aesthetics. Dermal fillers are a very safe and effective option for patients looking to restore or enhance facial volume and achieve a more youthful appearance.
A “liquid facelift” is a non-surgical treatment that uses dermal injections (neurotoxins and fillers) to enhance areas of the face. There are many potential benefits to a liquid facelift, including making the skin appear more plump and taut, diminishing fine lines and wrinkles, and restoring facial volume, often giving the illusion of a “lift.” This may be performed in one session, however it may be broken into separate treatments to address different areas of the face or “layer” products. There may be some “social” downtime as bruising can occur, however there is no physical downtime for a liquid facelift. For patients who have medical or social reasons that make a surgical facelift less feasible, a liquid facelift is often an ideal alternative that can be tailored to your goals.
The effects of aging on collagen and elastin in the skin, exposure to ultraviolet (UV), blue, and infrared light rays, dryness, pollution, and other factors can significantly affect the appearance of our hands over time. Patients may start to notice thin and wrinkled skin, hyperpigmentation, prominent veins, and increased prominence of the underlying bony structure of the hands with time. Filler injections and other non-surgical treatments can smooth the skin on the hands, making them appear more youthful while also stimulating natural collagen production. Each filler is injected using a very fine needle and patients typically notice immediate improvement with additional, continued improvement over several weeks.
