INJECTABLES

NEUROMODULATORS

Neuromodulators such as BOTOX® COSMETIC, DYSPORT and XEOMIN are used to eliminate or soften deep creases across the forehead, between the eyebrows, around the eyes, and more.

 

These treatments relax the muscles, acting as a wrinkle reducer. Consult with one of our dermatologists or the Head Cosmetic Dermatology Nurse to discover which option will help you achieve the best cosmetic results.

FILLERS

Fillers and volumizers can be used to boost one's appearance by creating a more chiseled jawline and restoring lost volume.

Using fillers, volumizers and neuromodulators (i.e. Botox) in the appropriate combination can result in a natural-looking, more well-rested appearance and may even surpass surgical treatments. Best of all, it can be accomplished in about an hour and requires very minimal downtime.

We offer all the latest fillers and volumizers, including:

PREPARING FOR YOUR FILLER APPOINTMENT
 

Dermal fillers correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds while re-volumizing and contouring the face, hands and other areas. 

 

The product is administered via an injection under your skin and into the tissue of your face or other area using a very thin gauge needle.  Injection related reactions can occur, including some initial swelling, discoloration, and bruising or tenderness at the injection site. Please plan your schedule accordingly.

 

Two weeks prior to your treatment, avoid taking Aspirin, Advil, (or any other type of Ibuprofen), St. John’s Wort, Vitamin E & Fish Oil.  Avoidance of these products may lessen your bruising.  Also, eating fresh pineapple during the 48 hours before your treatment may help with bruising.  The pineapple contains an enzyme, Bromelain, which aids in healing.

It is a good idea to purchase Arnica before your treatment to help prevent bruising. Our favorite formulation is Arnika Forte, Physician Formulated, as it contains a long-acting form of Arnica along with Bromelain.  If you do have bruising, the Arnica will help to speed up the healing process.  Arnika Forte is available at Signature Medical Spa.
