Wrinkles Prophylaxis.

Neurotoxin

Question: Are all toxins bad?

     Answer:  Yes... and no.  

When it comes to wrinkles, neurotoxins are good!  They are delivered directly to the site in targeted doses. But if you were to eat food contaminated with botulinum toxin, that would be bad.  Very bad.


Neurotoxins can help stop the muscles that cause wrinkles from forming in the first place.

Over time, the underlying muscles of the face result in folds in the overlying skin.  These folds are the wrinkles that deepen with age.  A few of them give us character! A lot of them make us look and feel old (and tired)!  By using neurotoxins like Botox, Dysport or Jeuveau, we can minimize existing wrinkle lines and prevent new ones from forming.


Question: Does it hurt?

     Answer:  Yes... and no.

Good news is: the injection needle is super tiny.  More good news is: we can apply a topical numbing cream to minimize discomfort.  Each patient deals with pain differently, so please speak up so you can have the best experience possible!


Question: Is it worth it?

     Answer: Yes.

Fillers

Aging is a strange phenomenon. We gain volume in areas  we don't want to be puffy, and we lose volume in places we want to be full. 

The face is one area that loses volume with age.   Some of this volume loss can be replaced with fillers, like Hyaluronic Acid.  Hyaluronic Acid is a natural compound that our bodies produce to help our skin and joints retain water.  

The Hyaluronic Acid in syringes looks like the glue in a hot glue gun. It's a clear gel, just not as sticky.  Injection of filler rejuvenates and fills areas of deficiency to restore a natural contour to the face.
