While the holidays are meant to be a time of joy and peace, everyone knows they are the most stressful time of the year. Have you thought about how you are going to flit, flirt and skirt through the holiday season this year without a care or concern etching a single line or wrinkle into your face? Here’s a suggestion. Give yourself the gift of a nonsurgical cosmetic facial refresher that will keep you glowing all the way from Thanksgiving to the New Year.
With a range of nonsurgical procedures to choose from, you’ll want to select the one that best suits your needs as well as your schedule. While we explore what each treatment offers here, you will also need to schedule a consultation prior to treatment.
What’s Your Pleasure?
Right now is the perfect time to schedule one of the many treatments that will relax facial muscles as well as smooth and tighten the skin for a vibrant, youthful glow.
BOTOX® Cosmetic can visibly smooth and soften moderate to severe frown lines between your brows, crow’s feet, wrinkled lip lines, and neckband creases. Improvements have been reported within just days after treatment, with results lasting from three to six months. The procedure is so easy that you can have it done during your lunch break.
Restylane® is composed of a naturally occurring substance found in the human body(hyaluronic acid). A natural cosmetic dermal filler, Restylane® works by restoring volume that results in a fullness to the skin while lasting longer than any other now on the market. We have seen patients with positive results six months or longer.
JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel, from the makers of BOTOX® Cosmetic, immediately provides a smooth, natural, noticeable look and feel. Designed to restore youthfulness to skin that has been diminished by age and other skin changes, it is considered the “next generation” dermal filler. Great for smile lines around the mouth. The gel is also made of naturally occurring hyaluronic acid. The effects can last from six to nine months.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is new on the scene and is the first and only filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume specifically to the cheek area. The treatment lasts for up to 2 years, and is only available for patients over the age of 21.
Radiesse® is an innovative filler that has been used for many years in prosthetic implants in dental, facial and orthopedic surgery. The product consists of calcium hydroxylapatite, which is a normal constituent of bone and, therefore, does not require allergy testing. Unlike other fillers, Radiesse® is not absorbed by the body. Therefore, there is no need to over-fill the wrinkle. While the procedure takes about 30 minutes, the results are immediate.
