Over time, your skin loses elasticity and volume, which contributes to moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. While serums and creams work on the skin’s surface, injectables like Juvederm, Radiesse, Restylane and Sculptra add volume to smooth these lines and folds, to help give you the subtle, long-lasting results you want.
As we age, skin loses its elasticity, and dynamic wrinkles begin to form. Botox is the most effective skin treatment for subtly tackling the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles. It also prevents new lines forming by relaxing the facial muscles and reducing excessive facial movements. Botox® Cosmetic is Allergan’s trade name for the protein and neurotoxin onabotulinumtoxinA. The protein is used cosmetically as a muscle relaxing injection for the treatment of wrinkles.
Juvederm is a collection of hyaluronic acid fillers that add volume to a different area of the face to lift cheeks, smooth parentheses lines, or plump the lips. The results are subtle and long-lasting. Voluma is best for restoring cheekbone and mid-face volume, while Volbella is great for the lips and Vollure for filling in smile lines. Juvederm Volbella for lips and fine lines has a new 1.0 ml syringe size, which saves you $100 over buying two of the 0.5 ml syringes.
Radiesse is a volume builder and collagen stimulator that is injected under the skin. Immediately, this filler works to add volume and over time, the benefits of Radiesse continue by stimulating your body's own natural collagen. Radiesse can be used to add structure and volume to the checks, temples and hands as well as filling in wrinkles. The natural results have been shown to last over a year in most patients, making the treatment both immediate and long lasting. Radiesse is also approved for use in the hands.
Combat the signs of aging with Restylane! Restylane is a collection of hyaluronic acid fillers that provide natural-looking results by smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds, providing subtle lip enhancement, smoothing the lines around the mouth, and adding lift and volume to the cheeks, and reversing the signs of volume loss in the backs of hands. With Restylane you get minimally invasive, clinically proven, natural looking results to help achieve the look you want.
Sculptra is made with a sugar derivative called poly-L-lactic acid, which is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body and helps to rebuild lost collagen through a series of treatments administered by Dr. Neil. Sculptra helps stimulate collagen growth to restore facial volume and the look of fullness to wrinkles and folds over time. Sculptra is shown to last over 2 years and helps stimulate your body's natural collagen growth.
Dr. Susan E. Neil can help reduce the appearance of varicose veins with sclerotherapy. Sclerotherapy effectively treats varicose and spider veins and is often considered the treatment of choice for small varicose veins. Sclerotherapy involves injecting a solution directly into the vein. The sclerotherapy solution, called Asclera®, is injected and causes the vein to scar, forcing blood to reroute through healthier veins. Asclera® is considered the safest and most comfortable sclerosant. The collapsed vein is reabsorbed into local tissue and eventually fades. After sclerotherapy, treated veins tend to fade within a few weeks, although occasionally it may take a month or more to see the full results. In some instances, several sclerotherapy treatments may be needed.
Frown lines form when facial expressions are made as the muscle contracts under the skin. Overtime as these repeated facial expressions can cause lasting frown lines and other wrinkles. Xeomin is injected under the skin and helps block the muscles from contracting and softens the appearance of frown lines by using incobotulintoxinA.
Wrinkles aren’t your style and the “frozen look” isn’t either. For adults who want a natural look, there’s Dysport, a prescription injection proven to help smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face. Untreated muscles still work normally, so you can continue to express feelings naturally. It’s the lines that are minimized, not your expressions.
