A tool in the toolbox that is utilized and recommended, if needed, to achieve resolution of lines and laxity. If youthful skin function is maximized their use is lessened. This non-surgical treatment, requiring no down time, is made of purified protein for the temporary reduction of wrinkles and frown lines which are caused by damage, aging and repetitive facial motion to the skin. Your Action Plan can help to achieve longer lasting results, by treating and reversing the damage and deficiencies that cause the lines and wrinkles, rather than just treating the symptoms stemming from the problem.
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 works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet to form over time.
More tools in the toolbox, if needed, to fill lines and improve laxity. This is facial sculpting, closely scrutinizing the asymmetry and special needs of each face. There is a reason we choose the fillers we do and do not use. They are safe, natural and restore and correct facial wrinkles and folds by adding volume and fullness to the skin. The longevity of fillers will be greatly impacted by your individualized Action Plan.
JUVÉDERM® injectable gel is for injection into areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur to temporarily add volume to the skin, especially around the nose and mouth. As you age, your skin changes, including the production of hyaluronic acid. Over time, the loss of hyaluronic acid in your skin results in facial wrinklesand folds including the “parentheses” lines around your mouth.
LATISSE® treats eyelashes by increasing their growth, including length, thickness, and darkness.
