Would you like to restore youthful fullness to your face, soften facial creases and wrinkles, and enjoy fuller lips? Dermal fillers or a neuromodulator such as BOTOX® may be a treatment option for you.  Dermal fillers offer many of the benefits of a surgical facelift without the downtime.  While they cannot tighten sagging skin they can add more volume and many times provide immediate results. BOTOX® targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Your specialist will inject these muscles with BOTOX® to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows.

Our board-certified dermatologists and physician assistant are certified expert injectors that continue to educate themselves as new injectables become readily available. We begin every appointment with a consultation where we discuss any areas of concern and offer a treatment plan as appropriate.

  • NovaThreads

    Used For:   Instantly lifts sagging or lax skin.

    NovaThreads Treatment is a new option for patients wanting a natural looking, instant face lift. These temporary absorbable threads can be inserted almost anywhere in the body but are mainly used on the lower third of the face such as the jawline, jowls and lips. A specially designed thread and barb are gently inserted under the skin into the area needing a lift. Over time your natural collagen slowly grows around it sustaining the lift. The threads are left to dissolve and are made of Polydioxanone which are used for common medical procedures. Once the sutures dissolve you’re left with taught skin and great results in the treated area.

    Downtime: There is no downtime. Everyone treated should expect to have slight bruising and will be asked to minimize exaggerated facial expressions or excessive talking for a day or two.

    Maintenance:  Yearly maintenance treatments may be required to maintain results.

    Results:  Many patients see an instant lift in the skin. The most common reaction is “Wow.”

  • Kybella

    Kybella

    Used For:  Contours submental fat/fullness. It is not approved for fat reduction in any other location.

    KYBELLA is the first and only FDA-approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness. The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, it causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. Submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin,” is a common yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition. Kybella is a great alternative to lyposuction.To see how Kybella destroys fat cells Click here to watch the see video

    Downtime: Everyone treated should expect to have swelling of the treated area for 7-10 days after treatment. There may be slight redness and there is often some numbness of the skin for 1-3 weeks.

    Maintenance:  Although more than one treatment session may be necessary, any results obtained seem to be very long lasting and no maintenance treatments are required. Initial treatment sessions are spaced a month apart till the desired effect is achieved. Each appointment takes approximately 30 minutes.

    Post Treatment Instructions:  Patients are often more comfortable the first day with ice to reduce swelling and inflammation. Mild analgesics can be taken but are usually not required.

    Results:  Noticeable reduction, the submental fat can be seen even after the first treatment but progressive improvement is seen with each subsequent treatment spaced at least a month apart.

  • Dermal Fillers

    Dermal Fillers

    Used For:   Restoring youthful fullness to the face, soften facial creases and wrinkles and adding fullness to lips.

    As we age our face loses volume. Dermal fillers are used to replace the lost volume, providing many times immediate results with very little downtime. At Dermatology Associates our providers offer Juvederm XC, Restylane, Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft, Belotero, Radiesse and Sculptra. We will be happy to advise you on the best filler to achieve your desired results.

    Downtime:  Most commonly reported side effects are temporary bruising and swelling at the injection sites that typically resolve within 1-3 days.

    Maintenance:  Evidence shows that having a follow up treatment before the dermal filler product fully dissipates will enhance the lasting effect. Depending on the filler and location this can range from 6-9 months to over 2 years.

    Post Treatment Instructions:  Avoid overly touching the treated area(s) for the first 6 hours, avoid exposure to intense heat (tanning bed, sunbathing, hot yoga).

    Results:  Results can vary depending on the type of filler used and will be discussed with you during your consultation. Typically, we anticipate that you may not get full correction in the first treatment. Our philosophy is that it is better to put in a little more in a month’s time than to put in too much.

  • Neuromodulators- Botox, Xeomin, Dysport

    Neuromodulators- Botox, Xeomin, Dysport

    Neuromodulators:  Act to reduce dynamic lines in the face-those lines that are caused by muscle movement not simple wrinkles. While there are many places this can be used, the most common places are forehead creases, frown lines and crow’s feet (corners of the eyes). Neuromodulators all work to weaken muscles which are causing the creases in the skin. They usually take a few days to a week to begin working and wear off after three to four months so maintenance treatments are required. There are three currently available neuromodulators: Botox, Dysport and Xeomin.

    Used For:  Most commonly, neuromodulators are used in the forehead, frown lines (glabella) and corners of the eyes (crow’s feet). They are also used to decrease a gummy smile, bunny lines on the nose, gently lift the corners of the mouth, reduce the width of the jaw by reducing masseter muscle size and reduce the bands on the neck.

    Downtime:  We recommend that after neuromdulators you move the injected muscles for an hour and avoid lying down for four hours. Apart from that, there is no downtime. Makeup can be applied immediately.

     Maintenance:  To maintain optimum results, treatment should be repeated every 3-4 months.
