In this section we have included a few key questions that we often hear from our patients along with detailed information on the dermal fillers, injectables & other non-surgical cosmetic treatments we offer. With so many treatment options available today, it can be difficult to know which one is best for you. We understand and we’re happy to help you make informed choices about your skin. Please feel free to explore or call anytime for more information!
Dermal Fillers or Neurotoxins?
Fillers & neuromodulators aren’t the same; the big difference is in what it is that’s being treated. Botox, Dysport & Xeomin are used to temporarily relax muscle movement – which softens dynamic wrinkles caused by squinting, frowning, etc. While dermalfillers restore volume & stimulate collagen. The full cheeks of our youth slowly fade due to gravity allowing cheek fat pads to shift down. As a result, deep creases form around the mouth & make our faces appear gaunt or thin. Fillers can also be used for volume in other areas like earlobes or the tops of your hands!
Do injectables prevent wrinkles & skin aging?
Yes, both dermal fillers & neuromodulators are preventative for skin aging. Imagine folding a piece of paper in half – with each time you fold & unfold the paper, the crease becomes deeper. Muscle movement is temporarily inhibited with treatments like Botox. As a result, wrinkles (creases in the paper) are prevented from becoming more visible & prominent on your skin over time. In addition, most dermal fillers stimulate your body’s own collagen production in the treatment area, which is another anti-aging benefit!
There are so many injectables to choose from! How do I pick?
The reason why we carry so many different cosmetic injectables is that much like our patients, each one is different!We believe in creating a treatment plan that is specifically tailored to you! It’s our job to explain the options to you & make recommendations. We understand that everyone has their own unique set of concerns, so we will talk to you about them and then design a plan to get you the best results possible while sticking to your lifestyle, budget and goals.
