Dysport is an alternative to the popular Botox treatments that provides a much more natural look. This is a prescription injection that has been clinically proven to help smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows without changing the rest of the face, which can be referred to as frozen look. Untreated muscles still work normally, so you can continue to express feelings naturally.
If you’re under 65 and you’d like to improve your look by smoothing out those frown lines, then we invite you to contact us today to learn more about this treatment and we can help answer any questions you might have or set up a consultation.
Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen, which is an underlying cause of facial aging. It’s primarily used to correct both shallow and deep facial wrinkles or folds. Over the counter collagen creams claim to deliver collagen through skin absorption, but collagen molecules are too large to penetrate the dermis. So these feign results largely by containing great moisturizers and vitamins that briefly improve the skin’s appearance.
Toxins work by temporarily weakening muscles and can then deliver collagen where you need it most. These treatments can begin to show results within a couple of days and can last up to months or even a couple of years.
Restylane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid specifically formulated to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid. It’s used to treat different kinds of wrinkles depending on the location, such as around the mouth or eyes.
Dermal fillers are facial injection treatments used to help diminish wrinkles while restoring volume and fullness in the face and hands. There are several types of dermal fillers, one being hyaluronic acid. All Restylane products are transparent hyaluronic acids, which are sugars naturally found in the skin that help provide hydration, fullness and elasticity.
Mesotherapy was first introduced in France that was developed all the way back in 1952 if you can believe it, so it isn’t relatively new as a procedure. How we use it however is a modern take on a procedure that was originally developed to treat vascular and infectious diseases, sports injuries, and the improvement of circulation.
The treatment involves the injection of small amounts of various medications and nutrients into the mesoderm, which is the layer of fat and connective tissue under the skin. This delivery system can used for a wide variety of benefits, including fat reduction, scar reduction and removal, hair loss, arthritis and much more.
PRP Therapy (Platelet Rich Plasma)
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is an innovative, completely natural treatment option that uses your own body to invigorate the healing process. It’s a safe, non-surgical treatment method that utilizes the healing properties of your own blood’s platelets to relieve pain, treat wrinkles and many other uses.
Everyone’s blood is comprised of the same key elements: red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma and platelets. Platelets are the essential component that PRP therapy relies on for treatment as they not only circulate your blood, but they release over 1500 growth factors and proteins that are used to facilitate wound and tissue repair.
Platelet-rich plasma therapy works by isolating and concentrating the platelets within your own blood and selectively injecting them into areas that we want to promote the body’s own natural healing process.
PRP Treatment can be helpful to heal and treat a huge range of ailments, some of which include:
