There’s a reason why Botox is the most popular cosmetic procedure around. All we have to do is look at the numbers; more than 6 million Botox treatments are administered each year in the United States alone.
Botox has a number of medical uses including relief of migraine pain and excessive sweating. However, it is best known for its amazing role in reducing fine lines and wrinkles by paralyzing the underlying muscles. There are few cosmetic procedures that are so straightforward with such incredibly satisfying results.
Dysport: Another Choice in Zapping Wrinkles
Both Botox and Dysport are botulinum toxin type A proteins and perform in a similar manner. The Dysport protein is slightly smaller, and some argue that it works quicker to show results.
Both Botox and Dysport are highly effective at reducing fine lines and wrinkles on the face.
Adding Volume: Restylane Family of Dermal Fillers
As our faces age, our bodies stop producing collagen, and cell turn-over starts to diminish, along with other noticeable changes. The Restylane group of dermal fillers can re-create the buoyancy and youthful contours we miss with hyaluronic acid.
Restylane Lyft was invented for cheek augmentation and the correction of age-related mid-face contour deficiencies.
Restylane L was designed for mid-to-deep injection into the facial tissue for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, like nasolabial folds.
Restylane Silk was developed specially for lip augmentation and the smoothing of wrinkles around the mouth.
All three Restylane injectable fillers create a fuller, natural and more youthful appearance that cannot be achieved with over-the-counter cosmetic products.
Microdermabrasion: Using Fine Crystal Blast
Microdermabrasion is a popular procedure that is all about gentle abrasion and superb exfoliation. Patients love it for its smoothing properties, brighter skin tone and scar reduction results.
During microdermabrasion treatment, a top layer of skin is removed, and the exfoliation action is believed to encourage the body to increase cell turnover and to produce collagen.
Cosmetic Mole Removal: Offering Several Options
For many patients, having a mole removed has given them an improved self-esteem. Although every mole is unique for every face, there are three methods to cosmetic mole removal.
A shave excision (cuts the mole off with a sharp blade); a punch excision (a small apparatus is placed over the mole and “twists” it out); or a surgical excision for larger moles.
Skin Tag/Benign Lesion: Featuring Quick Solutions
Skin Tags/Benign Lesions are more common in the elderly and removed for cosmetic reasons. There are a variety of topical products that can safely remove warts and skin tags, depending on the size. Smaller lesions, for example, can be removed by products containing salicylic acid or urea.
A local anesthetic like lidocaine can also be injected and then, these tags can be “naturally” cut off with a scissor or scalpel.
Sclerotherapy: Saying Bye-Bye to Varicose Veins
Nothing ruins your legs like unsightly varicose veins or a bunch of spider vein clusters. Sclerotherapy is a very effective treatment that involves injecting a solution into the vein, causing it to close off and re-route blood to healthier veins. The treated veins then collapse and get re-absorbed into nearby tissue and fade from view.
Multiple treatments might be required, but results are permanent, and patients usually notice changes in a few weeks.
