Facial Spa Artistry
Now that you’ve had your teeth enhanced, brightened, or sculpted with veneers or whitening procedures, why not take advantage or our other procedures we have available! Continue that youthful appearance by reducing wrinkles or lines in your face around your mouth. Or, eliminate the lines in your forehead or between eyebrows. The exciting thing is that most of these procedures are completed in less than an hour.
BOTOX® is a product that when injected into the muscles of the face will temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe forehead lines, frown lines between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet lines. It is a quick 10-minute procedure that can create noticeable differences in adults within 24-48 hours.
This product is FDA approved, the results are predictable and subtle. It has over 16 years usage in facial esthetics and is approved in 98 countries around the world.
Repeated squinting, smiling, raising eyebrows or frowning can cause the muscles to create a furrow from the muscle contractions. BOTOX® allows for gently making these lines less noticeable – so you will still look like you, only younger!
BOTOX® is for both men and women and in fact, the number of aesthetic conscious men is a fast-growing part of our population today. The best part is that it has very minimal “downtime”. You can actually return to work right after your appointment.
Other uses of Botox® include the treatment of Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMJ/TMD) and bruxism. By injecting right into the facial and jaw muscles, it can provide almost immediate relief from jaw tension and soreness. These can be used to treat lockjaw and eliminate or reduce bruxism (night grinding).
XEOMIN® (incobotulinumtoxinA) is another anti-wrinkle product that is clinically proven to reduce the frown lines between the eyebrows. It tends to last a few weeks longer than BOTOX®. While the method of action and the overall cost is about the same, the packaging for the two is slightly different and XEOMIN® requires more tubules.
XEOMIN® contains only the single ingredient, whereas the other products may also have preservatives or other additives. It doesn’t necessarily mean that it is better or worse than the other products and in fact, clinical studies show very similar results between all three of these products.
Because it doesn’t have additives, if doesn’t require refrigeration.
ONSET of full effect is slightly slower that the others – up to 4 days
DYSPORT® is another product similar to the above products and it typically is packaged in smaller dosages. It has a proven track-record of safety and efficacy for providing smoother facial skin tone.
Although the primary usage of these products from our perspective, is to help reduce wrinkles, in some cases these products can also help with involuntary muscle twitching or contractions. This is also known as Dystonia. This typically will involve a medical diagnosis however.
