5 Juvederm Fillers and When to Use Them

This month we have a special on five Juvederm dermal fillers. Now is a great time to try these amazing age-defying treatments for yourself. But how do you choose which one to try? The five different fillers are used for different types of aging, and it is important that you choose the right one. Use the guide below to help you make your decision, or contact us for a consultation for assistance.

Juvederm Ultra

Juvederm Ultra contains the active ingredient hyaluronic acid, which is a component found in the skin naturally. It is mostly used to decrease lip lines, facial lines around the mouth, and to increase the fullness of lips. This dermal filler is great if you have lost a lot of volume in and around your lips causing wrinkles to form. Results last about one year.

Juvederm Ultra Plus

Juvederm Ultra Plus is also made with hyaluronic acid, but it is a thicker dermal filler that is great for reversing moderate to severe volume loss in the face. Sometimes as a person ages their body no longer produces the components necessary for healthy and full skin. This can cause volume loss in the face that can lead to deep lines and wrinkles. Juvederm Ultra Plus replaces that fullness and smooths out the lines that it caused. These results last about a year as well. Continue reading “5 Juvederm Fillers and When to Use Them”

Firm and Tighten Your Skin with Accent Laser Therapy

Pregnancy, changes in weight, and aging can all result in loose or flabby skin, stretch marks, and other signs that your skin has lost elasticity. Diet and exercise alone often will not tone this loose skin. There are several possible treatments, but if you are looking for a noninvasive, pain free way to tighten your skin without downtime, Accent Laser Therapy might be a great option for you.

What is Accent?

Accent is a type of laser therapy that uses radiofrequency to heat the skin. It is applied with a wand-like tool by a licensed and certified healthcare professional. The treatment works by heating the skin, causing the production of new collagen. Collagen is the nutrient in your body that produces new skin cells and makes the skin tight, firm, and supple.

What Results Can You Expect?

Accent can provide some dramatic results. However, it is not a miracle. If you have severe flabs of loose skin due to extreme weight loss, a surgical lift may be more appropriate. Yet if you have mild to moderate problems with elasticity in your skin, Accent Laser Therapy can tighten the skin significantly for a dramatic if not perfect improvement.

What is Restylane?

Restylane is a dermal filler that uses hyaluronic acid to plump the face and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles in the process. Restylane can be used to target numerous areas, such as folds around the nose and mouth. It can also be used to reduce bags under the eyes or to plump the lips and eliminate wrinkles around the mouth. Continue reading “Restylane for Men and Women: Eliminate Fine Lines and Wrinkles”

Botox vs. Dysport: What You Need to Know

Most people have heard of Botox, even if they have never tried it for themselves. Dysport is a lesser known and newer alternative to Botox that is very similar with some differences. There have been a lot of studies into both Botox and Dysport, but these studies have not seen a conclusive winner in the debate. Both Botox and Dysport are highly effective for many people. Here’s what you need to know about them so you can make a decision about which one you will use to smooth out your fine lines and wrinkles.

Similarities

Botox and Dysport both use the neurotoxin Botulinum Type A to relax the muscles of the face that cause lines and wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet), brows, and forehead. Both Botox and Dysport have been shown to be effective in this endeavor, although they both have varying evidence in duration of results. Both injectables are completely safe, FDA approved, and last a minimum of three months. Continue reading “Botox vs. Dysport: What You Need to Know”

How IPL Laser Treatment Can Replenish Your Skin

Aging, skin conditions, sun exposure, and other events can discolor your skin, make the tone uneven, or produce fine lines and wrinkles. While there are many treatments for making your skin look fresh and young, the best treatment available for evening skin tone and resolving blemishes is IPL laser treatment. Learn what it is, how it works, and why you should try it.

What Is an IPL Laser?

The IPL laser is intense pulsed light laser. The focused pulsed light is directed at the target areas of the skin. This laser is able to lighten skin without affecting the healthy skin around the target area. It is safe for most skin types, and does not take long to complete. Results take 3 to 10 days and vary by individual.

Your IPL Treatment

IPL treatments are usually very quick and painless appointments. Your treatment will begin with a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort during the procedure. After the procedure, it will seem as though you have a mild sunburn. Your skin will darken and flake off, with the desired results sometimes taking 3 to 10 days as the skin recovers. You may notice some immediate effects of blemishes caused by blood vessels immediately in some cases. Most people who benefit from IPL laser treatment only require one session to get the desired results. Continue reading “How IPL Laser Treatment Can Replenish Your Skin”
