As we age, the natural elasticity of our skin diminishes, and the result is unwanted wrinkles and frown lines. This loss of elasticity is mostly due to the weakening of collagen, but other factors including stress, sun exposure, and smoking can also contribute to the development of wrinkles. Botox and Dysport are proven nonsurgical cosmetic treatments for minimizing facial wrinkles and providing a smoother, more youthful appearance. Injectable Fillers are also a preferred nonsurgical way to rejuvenate your youthful look, and the benefits are often seen immediately! Cosmetic treatments in our practice are safe, comfortable, and sanitary.
During your initial consultation with our skillful team, we will discuss your preferences, work closely with you to customize a treatment plan to revitalize your facial appearance, and take digital photographs of your face to document your improvement. Just like we do for our oral surgery patients, our team is dedicated to finding and implementing the optimal solution for you that reflects your individual condition as well as your desires and goals.
Botox is a proven substance produced from a naturally occurring bacterium called Clostridium botulinum. It is a neurotoxin that is injected into the skin to relax the facial muscles, providing a smoother complexion over common problem areas such as crow’s feet, the forehead, and that stubborn furrow between the eyebrows. The procedure is minimally invasive and takes just minutes. Patients see the results within three to five days, there is no downtime whatsoever, and the results can last up to three or four months.
Botox is a very popular treatment at our practice for the following reasons:
Botox is one of the most popular methods of facial rejuvenation. It is FDA-approved, very safe, requires no downtime, and carries very few risks other than some very minor bruising at or around the injection site, which resolves quickly. Our clinical team is extremely skilled at performing Botox injections — you will be in the very best hands!
Dysport has been used in other parts of the world for decades with safe and proven results but has only recently become popular in North America. Dysport is not unlike Botox in that it is used to reverse the signs of aging by effectively relaxing wrinkles around the eyes and forehead for a softer, more youthful appearance. However, Dysport’s special formula can address a wider area of the face with fewer injections compared to Botox. Though Dysport uses the same active ingredient as Botox, Dysport has a smaller active molecule in its formula, allowing it to distribute over the treated facial areas more efficiently than Botox, so it may take effect more quickly. The choice of which treatment to choose is a subjective one, as lengths of effectiveness vary from person to person with both Dysport and Botox.
Dysport carries all the benefits of Botox as a minimally invasive, nonsurgical option for rejuvenating the face that requires no incisions, stitches, or scarring. There is no downtime and virtually no negative side effects.
Injectable facial fillers are a very effective treatment for turning back the clock by reducing wrinkles, smoothing out scar depressions in the skin, and plumping up volume in the lips and other areas of the face that require rejuvenation. When you receive facial fillers at our practice, safe, natural substances such as collagen and hyaluronic acid are used to gently enhance your youthful look through facial injections. The procedure is simple and quick and offers immediate results and very little to no downtime. The minor risks include itching and/or tenderness at the injection site and possibly some minimal bruising that will resolve within a few days. We use the smallest needles available, and you can rest assured that your treatment will be as gentle and comfortable as possible when you receive injectable facial fillers at our practice.
One of our greatest joys is to help our patients feel self-confident. At our practice, Botox, Dysport, and facial fillers procedures are performed in a safe, comfortable, and sanitary setting by highly experienced and compassionate professionals.
