Botox®, Dysport® & Xeomin®
No one likes looking in the mirror and seeing lines on their forehead, crows feet, laugh lines and frown lines in between their eyes. Thankfully there is a way to make those lines disappear. They're called Neuromodulators and their job is to temporarily block nerve signals in order to stop muscle movement. Once the movement has stopped which takes around 7 to 10 days, your skin can remold and the lines will disappear giving you smoother skin and a softer look. We offer Botox, Dysport and Xeomin which all have the same active ingredient, botulinum toxin. Botox and Dysport have proteins added to the toxin as a protective barrier whereas Xeomin is formulated without extra proteins which is meant to be a purer version of the neurotoxin. All three work for the same amount of time- 3 to 4 months.
Neuromodulators specifically Botox® are also used to treat migraines, jaw disorders such as TMJ, muscle spasms of the neck and back as well as excessive sweating.
As we age two things happen to both men and woman. We lose fat in our face and experience a significant loss of facial bone. Dermal fillers are used to replace that loss and are commonly injected into the cheeks, midface, jawline, temples, chin, under eyes as well as lips.
Dr. Dwight Hiscox, M.D. is our expert injector and has been refining his craft for 19 years. His gentle, unrushed approach and attention to detail will help you achieve the best results possible. Experience with fillers matters and proper placement gives you a more natural look and less side effects. All fillers now include numbing which has made placement much more comfortable. We use the Juvederm collection of fillers as well as Restylane and the new RHA fillers.
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
