While aging may be inevitable, there are a variety of gentle, non-surgical treatment options to choose from when considering facial rejuvenation. Among the most popular methods of attaining a more youthful facial appearance are botulinum toxin injections

Enhancement Expertise

As we age, folds and wrinkles begin to appear in certain areas, while other places lose youthful volume, creating a worn, aged appearance. Through the use of cosmetic fillers, also known as dermal fillers, patients will achieve healthy, natural-looking and beautiful results.

Botulinum Toxin-A Injection

 Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes, collagen depletion, or damage caused by free radicals. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. And when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow’s feet. 

 BOTOX® Cosmetic, Xeomin, and dysport are injectable wrinkle relaxers composed of botulinum toxin type A. It works by preventing your facial muscles from contracting. This helps reduce the appearance of existing dynamic lines as well as preventing further lines from developing in the future.Since its introduction in the early 2000s, BOTOX® has helped millions of men and women of all skin tones reach their cosmetic goals.
Botox, Xeomin, Dysport:

  • Can treat a number of wrinkles including worry lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet
  • Quick and comfortable injection appointments
  • No downtime
  • No stitches or sutures
  • Results last for 3-4 months
  • Results can be prolonged with consecutive treatments
  • Procedures can be conveniently repeated on your schedule

You’ll notice the effects of your BOTOX , Xeomin, and dysport injections within 3-5 days, although some patients see results with the first 24 hours.

  • Augment a receding or small chin
  • Plump thin, flat lips
  • Fill hollows beneath the eyes
  • Reduce lines around the mouth

  • Juverderm Ultra
  • Juverderm Ultra Plus

  • Restylane-L
  • Restylane Defyne

Dermal Filler Information

Juvederm ultra plus/Restylane Defyne

Perfect for mild to moderate wrinkles and can add softness to the lips. It is also good at treating volume loss and shaping the face into a better contour. Ultra Plus will be injected deeper into the skin which is effective at improving folds and wrinkles. Both products have great results from the studies that have been done over the past few years. 

Generally these products last about 9-12 months.

belotera

BELOTERO BALANCE® is a prescription injection that is approved to temporarily smooth out and fill in moderate-to-severe nasolabial folds (the folds or wrinkles that go from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth). Individual results may vary, but BELOTERO BALANCE may last about 6 months or more. Some factors that affect how long it lasts are the amount of product used and the area it is injected into.


RADIESSE

 

Radiesse (calcium hydroxylapatite) is a FDA-approved subdermal implant (injected below the surface of the skin) indicated for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (nasolabial folds); for restoration and/or correction of the signs of facial fat loss; and cheeks. Radiesse is an injectable filler that works by immediately restoring facial volume to smooth out the signs of aging. Once injected, it stimulates the production of natural collagen for results that may last a year or more. Visible results can be seen immediately. 

volbella/restylane-L

Natural-looking lips that last!

These dermal fillers are of the latest innovations in injectable filler and non-surgical lip augmentation! They are recommended for its soft consistency that mimics the natural feeling of your lips. They help accentuate your lips and their border, creating subtle contour and volume corrections to achieve a naturally more well defined, softer, appearance.  Another added bonus is that they come with Lidocaine, making the injection much more comfortable for the patient. 

The dermal filler is used to define lips and for the correction of fine wrinkles around the lips. This temporary filler is made of Hyaluronic Acid and does not require a skin test before your injections. The smaller Hylauronic Acid particle size allows your cosmetic injector to treat fine lines without getting a full look in these delicate areas.

Results typically last up to 1 year. Most patients return for maintenance before the product completely disappears to optimize the overall contour, shape, and look. Dermal Filler in Concord Botox in Concord

vollure

Juvederm Vollure softens moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles by adding volume to the lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth to produce subtle and long-lasting results for up to 18 months.


VOLUMA/RESTYLANE LYFT

liquid gold

 The Liquid Gold is our own unique formula to take your microneedling experience to the next level. We utilize hyaluronic acid filler and neuromodulators (BOTOX®,XEOMIN®) plus Vitamin b12 to smooth fine lines, dramatically decrease pore size, and smooth out texture. It also helps remove hyperpigmentation and pitting from acne scars. The liquid gold cocktail is microneedled into the skin with the SkinPen®, the only FDA approved microneedling device in the U.S. 

 Instead of requiring multiple procedures, LiquidGold is one customized vial mixed with everything you need to solve those skin shortcomings. Attached to the vial is a series of 20 needles, each smaller than a piece of hair. The needles are coated in gold, which creates less chance of irritation or allergic reaction. Most importantly, they are hollow, so they transport the carefully concocted contents of that vial underneath the skin for maximum efficacy. 

 We're using a vitamin B complex, which is an antioxidant that's also reparative and invigorating to the skin, so it combats dullness. We're also micro-dosing with Botox to tighten up and smooth the skin, and Juvéderm Volbella, a micro hyaluronic acid, to hold water and moisturize. The difference between traditional Botox application and this "micro-dosing" is when we inject Botox inter-muscularly it's going to help diminish movement and relax the muscles. With microneedling there's no effect on movement or muscle relaxation. It's addressing texture issues like fine lines, scar tissue and pore size. In general, the surface of your skin is going to be much smoother.

You can expect to see noticeable improvement in your skin in about a week. That's how long it takes for the Botox to kick in and the hyaluronic acid molecules to hit full hydration-holding capacity. The effects last 3 months.

MINT PDO Threads

Achieving a youthful appearance has never been easier, thanks to PDO threads!

Achieving a youthful appearance has never been easier, thanks to PDO threads!

PDO threads can quickly and effectively contour the neck and jawline as well as erase wrinkles from the skin to combat signs of aging.

What are PDO Threads?

PDO threads, nicknamed the non-surgical facelift, stimulate collagen growth by lifting the face to accentuate the cheeks, 

tighten the jawline and diminish the jowls. In recent years, polydioxanone threads have gained recognition in the medical aesthetics industry. The threads can be inserted almost anywhere in the body, but providers have found that they are most effective when treating the neck and jawline.


Achieving a youthful appearance has never been easier, thanks to PDO threads!

In addition to stimulating new collagen growth, there are several PDO threads treatment benefits:

• Skin rejuvenation

• Brightened skin tone

• Improvement in skin wrinkles for up to 12 to 18 months

• No surgery and minimal down time

Achieving a youthful appearance has never been easier, thanks to PDO threads!

Why You Should Try PDO Threads?

1 Improved elasticity and texture. As we get older, the sun and the aging process naturally takes a toll on our skin’s elasticity and texture. We go from having smooth, soft skin to skin that no longer has the same elasticity as when we were 

younger.

2 Reduces wrinkles. Like Botox, PDO threads are a great way to reduce the wrinkles on your face. They can help with fine lines that are starting to develop as well as deep folds that you may have had on your face for several years.

3 Brightens skin tone. PDO threads improve the condition of your skin, giving you a more radiant appearance. This 

treatment rejuvenates the skin because of the lifting effect, which will give you more defined facial contours.

4 Natural-looking results. Just one PDO treatment makes it possible to reverse unwanted signs of aging and enhance 

your overall appearance – all without a painful, invasive process or extended recovery time! Whether you want to 

contour your jawline, reduce nasolabial and marionette lines or lift the skin around the eyebrows and cheeks, PDO  threads make it possible.

Lidocaine injection applied to the entry points following which threads are introduced into the skin through a fine needle- into either the skin itself, the muscle, or the subcutaneous fat. The 

treatment results in an immediate  improvement in appearance but the results will improve over ensuing days and weeks as the PDO stimulates neocollagenesis, increasing the amount of collagen in the skin. The appearance of the skin improves in terms of overall texture, becoming thicker, tighter and firmer as fine lines and wrinkles are reduced

Thread-lift treatments result in an instant and natural looking improvement in the appearance of the skin. A process of natural  protein synthesis then begins after about 10-14 days. Over the 

subsequent weeks results will continue to improve, peaking at around 6 months and lasting for up to 2 years as your own body 

produce collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Making this form of non surgical facelift a very long lasting treatment. The thread itself is completely biodegradable and dissolves within 12 weeks, after 

which new collagen has formed around the thread to continue to support results, maintaining a smooth and supple texture of the skin.

General aftercare advice:

 Some pain/discomfort after treatment can be expected, Ibuprofen can be taken if required.

 Do not have any other aesthetic procedures (such as toxins, 

fillers, peels etc.) for 7 days

 Avoid extreme temperatures, alcohol and anticoagulants for 7 days. Those taking Prescribed anticoagulants such as 

aspirin/warfarin must continue to do so but must be aware that bruising is more likely

 Gently wash the treated area as required, but do not rub or massage for 2 weeks 

 It is important not to overstretch the treated area (i.e. open the mouth wide) for 4 weeks (avoid dental treatment during 

this time if possible)

 Do not have Radio-frequency, IPL, Laser or other heat treatments near the treated area for 10 weeks

Plamere Plasma Pen

Plamere Plasma Pen

image16

 Plasma Pen is the world's most advanced, non-invasive, skin lifting, skin tightening and rejuvenation device used to treat wrinkles, and sagging, dull skin. The Plasma Pen is an FDA approved, CE approved device used to perform fibroblast therapy, a technique used to stimulate production of collagen in the skin  

Plamere Plasma Pen

Plamere Plasma Pen

The Plasma Pen works by converting electrical energy into electrostatic energy which is transmitted to the probe by impulse. At about 1mm from the skin, oxygen and nitrogen are mixed to produce an arc of plasma which discharges onto the epidermis. A series of tiny brown spots are strategically placed to attain the desired result. The skin around the dot tightens instantly, pulling the cells closer together. The "microdot" will fall off on their own in approx. 3-7 days. This advanced procedure helps to revive natural levels of the Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid and Fibronectin needed for fresh youthful skin.

Sclerotherapy

WHAT IS SCLEROTHERAPY


Sclerotherapy is the injection of a sterile chemical (AKA: agent) into a vein. Asclera is an FDA approved agent that can be injected into a vein and it works by damaging the inner wall of the vein. Eventually, the vein collapses on itself. Over time, the damaged vein is replaced with fibrous connective tissue and prevents blood flow through the vessel. Individual results may vary, and many patients will require multiple injection sessions for optimal treatment success.

YOU SHOULD NOT USE SCLEROTHERAPY IF: 


*Have a known clotting disorder

*Have a known allergy to polidocanol

*Are pregnant or nursing


BEFORE TREATMENT


• I will examine your veins and determine a treatment plan tailored for your needs.

• Antiseptic will be used to cleanse all intended treatment areas.

• A very fine needle (about a 30 gauge) is used to inject Asclera into veins up to 3mm in diameter.

• A slight stinging may be experienced with each injection.

• It is not unusual to see initial clearing of the treated vein, followed by return of blood flow to the area.

• After each injection is complete, a small pressure dressing may be used. Such dressings may be removed in the evening before bedtime.


 IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE PROCEDURE


 • Walk for 15 to 20 min immediately following the procedure and daily for the next few days.

• Wear compression stockings continuously for 2-3 days following your procedure. Then wear during the day for total of 7 days.

• Use of a compression garment is recommended. Patient to purchase compression stockings prior to day of procedure.  Literature supports medium-grade compression garments: i.e. 20-30mmHg2

• Do not shave your legs or use lotion on your legs the day of treatment.

• Bring a pair of shorts to wear during your procedure.


FOR 3-5 DAYS AFTER THE TREATMENT AVOID:


*Heavy exercise

*Sunbathing

*Hot baths/sauna

*Extended periods of sitting or standing, such as long plane flights


MORE INFORMATION


*It is important to follow up in 3 months to have the area re-examine and do a second treatment if necessary. 

*Skin may look irritated after the treatment, possibly even with bruises. Irritation and bruises will resolve with time.

*There is a possibility you might react to the adhesive tape used during your treatment, in the form of skin irritation or blistering.

*An area of brown colored pigmentation may appear that may look like bruises or follow the path of the vein. May take weeks to months to resolve. It is uncommon for this type of pigmentation to be permanent

* It can take several weeks to see final results and additional treatments may be required.

* It is important to realize that sclerotherapy does not prevent the development of new spider veins and/or varicosities as an individual continues to age.

*For questions or concerns following your sclerotherapy treatment, please follow-up with your treating healthcare practitioner

Kybella

Who is a canidate for kybella?

How does kybella work?

image23

 Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of fullness beneath the chin (Double Chin) by physically destroying fat cells. Once these cells are destroyed, they cannot store or accumulate fat. 

How does kybella work?

Who is a canidate for kybella?

How does kybella work?

image24

 Kybella uses deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring compound in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Kybella is injected into the area under the chin to break down the fat pocket that creates the appearance of the “double chin.” Fat eliminated during the treatment is processed through your body’s natural metabolism.

 There are several factors contributing to submental fullness (“double chin”) including genetics, weight gain, and the aging process itself. Kybella may be right for you if you’re bothered by fullness under your chin and you don’t want surgery. 

Treatment Process

What is the downtime after treatment?

Who is a canidate for kybella?

image26

 Kybella is injected during an office visit. For each treatment session we disinfect the skin, measure and mark out the treatment area, and perform a series of injections to the submental area. This injection process generally takes 15 to 20 minutes. After treatment, you will be instructed to apply ice to the treatment area for 10 to 15 minutes at a time, as often as needed for the remainder of the day. 

What is the downtime after treatment?

 You can resume your normal daily activities immediately after treatment though you will have substantial swelling for the first few days. Keep social plans and work commitments in mind when scheduling your treatment. Swelling is generally resolved enough to return to work and workouts in 3 days. The remainder of swelling and inflammation will be completely resolved within one month. Results will develop gradually over time as the fat disappears and chin contour improves.


  

IS KYBELLA SAFE?

The most common side effects include swelling, bruising, tenderness, areas of firmness, numbness, and redness, all of which resolve with time. There is also a small risk of nerve damage along the jawline which could lead to trouble swallowing and/or temporary asymmetry of the smile. For this reason, only experienced cosmetic injectors, such as dermatologists and plastic surgeons, should perform these treatments. 

How many treatments will i need?

What is the downtime after treatment?

image28

 The number of treatment sessions required will vary between patients based on the amount and distribution of fat in the submental area and personal treatment goals. Most people will require between two and three treatment sessions, but some may require as many as five or six. Treatment sessions will generally be spaced about four weeks apart. Results are permanent with additional treatments not expected once the desired contour is achieved.
