WHAT ARE BOTULINUM TOXIN & DERMAL FILLERS
Ever look in the mirror and realize you lost your top lip or cheekbones somewhere along the way in life?
The body’s production of collagen slows in our mid-to-late 20's and continues to slow down after age 30. From there, the collagen levels in our skin begin to drop by 1-2% each year.
Because of this, everyday activities like laughing, expressing, kissing, using straws, and even pursing my lips contribute to the development of life lines vertically around our mouth, wrinkles & lines. Whether you are wanting to redefine what you once had, plump, lift or reduce lines- taking in consideration your natural anatomy and a realistic goal with a plan, we can get you there!
Dermal filler is made from a soft hyaluronic gel that fills in lines and smoothes out the lips. It is strategically placed based in the desired area of treatment. It is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid- a sugar that is naturally present in your skin and helps to promote collagen production.
Hyper dynamic wrinkles are the most common indication for Botulinum Toxin Cosmetic treatments. The wrinkles and are caused by repeated contractions of the delicate underlying facial muscles every time you smile, laugh, or frown. The product is injected into the small facial muscles through a tiny needle, in order to relax hyper dynamic muscles, eliminating or decreasing crows feet, forehead wrinkles and eyebrow lines.

Botox/ Dysport can also be used in conjunction with filler. It can be used to extend and refresh the life of the lip filler. And if you aren’t particularly ready for lip augmentation, a tiny sprinkling of Botox/Dysport/Xeomin above the top lip to gently flip it up to reveal a bit more of the tissue, may be the right choice for you.

Sculptra is a polylactic acid that stimulates the growth of your own natural collagen to increase overall facial volume & tightness. The result is a gradual and completely natural restoration of volume which builds over time. Since volume is being restored by collagen, it is one of the most natural and effective of all injectables.
Sculptra lasts considerably longer than most injectables (up to 2 years or more), is injected more deeply, and requires greater expertise to inject.
Sculptra works subtly and gradually over time for results that can last more than two years. It consists of three treatments spaced out every five weeks.
