Anti-Wrinkle Injections are a naturally occurring toxin, that work by temporarily relaxing facial muscles to prevent the skin from wrinkling. This treatment softens wrinkles, creates smoother looking skin and prevents deeper lines from forming. Common treatment areas include frown lines, forehead lines, crows feet, gummy smile, brow lift and chin dimpling.
Dermal Fillers are a natural, bio-degradable, injectable gel made from hyaluronic acid. They provide structure, volume and support to the face to create a fresher, more youthful appearance. Dermal Fillers can be used to enhance facial contours such as the cheeks, chin and jawline, or can be used to replace lost volume to reduce facial sagging and wrinkling.
Lip Fillers are an injectable gel made from a naturally occurring, sugar based substance. When injected into the lips, fillers add volume to the lip body, provide hydration, enhance shape by defining the lip border and cupid's bow and can reduce wrinkles on the lips and around the mouth. This can all be done without looking "ducky" or overdone.
If you're feeling a little unsure about dermal fillers that you've had previously, possibly a little overfilled or something just isn't quite right, these fillers can often be dissolved. A specific medication is injected directly into the area of concern to dissolve the filler in the tissue. After this treatment, the area is reviewed and can then be treated with cosmetic injectables to correct and achieve the desired result.
Platelet Rich Plasma, commonly known as PRP, is a skin rejuvenation treatment that helps tighten and smooth skin, soften wrinkles and improve skin tone and texture. PRP involves using your body's own platelets, taken from your blood, to improve the skin's collagen and elastin when injected into the skin layer. PRP is commonly used around the eyes, on the overall face and can help to reduce acne scarring and stretch marks.
Threads are designed to lift and firm areas of the face, using tiny "threads" made of a fully dissolvable, string-like material. "Cog Threads" also known as Long Threads, use a mechanical lifting action to improve sagging of the mid and lower face such as jowls, marionette lines and nasolabial folds. "Mono Threads" also known as Short Threads, stimualte collagen production in the skin to tighten and reduce wrinkles in areas such as the nasolabial lines, accordion lines, neck and around the eyes and mouth.
Fat Dissolving Injections are a non-surgical technique that reduce the appearance of a "double chin". This mixture of medications is injected directly into the fatty area under the chin and mimics the body's natural fat-absorption process, to break down and remove fat cells. Results can include a reduction in fat under the chin, a slimming appearance of the lower face and a more defined jawline.
Jaw clenching and teeth grinding are increasingly common and can be excruciatingly painful. To treat jaw clenching and teeth grinding, anti-wrinkle injections are placed directly into the masseter muscle (jaw muscle) that is responsible for chewing. The muscle becomes partially relaxed, easing tension caused by the overactive muscle, which can result in reduced pain and headaches, healthier teeth and gums and can in some cases have a facial slimming affect.
