What is Botox®?

Botox®, also referred to as botulinum toxin type A, is injected in patients to provide cosmetic benefits. It is an effective way to reduce the fine lines and wrinkles that everyone experiences as they age. Botox® is made from a refined bacterium. Patients who use this product will see their skin become smoother and will develop a younger appearance as a result of its ability to temporarily relax facial muscles. Doctors will also use Botox® to provide relief for migraine sufferers and for those with overactive bladders.

Some patients prefer a local anesthetic to be used in the area that is going to be treated. Others do not feel that Botox® treatments are uncomfortable enough to merit anesthesia. Botox® is injected into the facial muscles by using an extremely thin needle. The doctor will vary the number of injections given based on the amount of and severity of the wrinkles and fine lines in an individual’s face. The results of a Botox® treatment usually lasts between three to four months. Once this time has passed, patients usually return for additional treatments.

 
Botox® Procedure Preparation

It is imperative to inform our Practitioners of any other injections you have had over the previous four months. Before the procedure, you should avoid using blood thinners and aspirin, since these could increase the risk of excessive bleeding. Let us know if you’re using muscle relaxers, medicine for allergies or sleep aides before scheduling an appointment.

Juvéderm®

What is Juvéderm®?

Juvéderm is a soft but stable injectable gel made of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the skin that assists in adding hydration and volume. The American Academy of Facial Esthetics trained professional clinicians carefully introduce Juvéderm into the mid to deep dermis to temporarily smooth wrinkles and fine lines; replenishing volume in the skin almost instantly. The dermis is part of the subsurface skin layer that includes nerve endings, blood vessels, sweat, oil glands, and connective tissue.

The Juvéderm dermal filler treatment process is very quick (about 15 minutes) with immediate results. Downtime is minimal and you can get back to your normal routine right away. The Food and Drug Administration approved Juvéderm in 2006 as the only hyaluronic acid filler that will last up to one year.

The Juvéderm advantage is that its supple gel consistency provides a more natural-looking appearance than other products. Juvéderm is also long lasting so you can keep your improved appearance from six to nine months. If you have a follow-up enhancement within a few weeks after the first dermal filler treatment, the benefits could last even longer. Side effects are rare, but may include tenderness, bruising, mild pain, swelling and redness at the injection site and generally resolve within a few days.

Risks Of Juvéderm® Ultra And Ultra Plus Injectable Gels

Although JUVÉDERM Ultra and Ultra Plus are considered safe, there is a risk of side effects. They are usually limited to the injection site, and include the following:

Redness
Pain or tenderness
Firmness

Latisse®

What is Latisse®?

Latisse® is an FDA approved topical medication that can enhance the natural beauty of your eyelashes. The drug contained in Latisse®, bimatoprost, treats a common cosmetic condition called eyelashe hypotrichosis. Hypotrichosis is a blanket term for when your hair is inadequate in thickness and definition. When the condition affects hair on the upper eyelid, eyelashes are less than stellar. Hair is thinner, appearing wiry and sparse with larger gaps between follicles than is natural.

How Does Latisse® Work?

Latisse® uses the drug bimatoprost, which until recently was primarily used to treat symptoms of glaucoma. In liquid form, eye drops containing bimatoprost relieve pressure in the eyes that can cause vision loss. Latisse® is applied nightly to the upper eyelid skin with a brush tool and promotes eyelash growth while also working to darken the lash, heightening contrast.

For full results, Latisse® should be applied once nightly for two months. With maintenance therapy, less frequent but well-timed use of Latisse® thereafter can keep your eyelashes fuller and longer. Latisse® is only used on upper lashes as application to lower lashes can cause hair growth outside of the treatment area.

Currently, Latisse® is commonly used as a cosmetic treatment, but for some people better eyelashes are necessary for keeping eyes healthy. The purpose of eyelashes is to protect the eye from foreign substances like dust, dirt, and other particulates. Eyelashes also work to trigger the eye’s response to close when coming into contact with objects, protecting your eyes from trauma. People with alopecia areata of the eyelids have shown some promising reactions to Latisse®, but further study is necessary to prove its validity as an alopecia treatment. People undergoing chemotherapy have fared better, and the drug can often help return eyelashes for people who lost them from the treatment.
