Wrinkle Relaxers & Injectable Facial Fillers
Wrinkles and lines on your face can prematurely age you. Inactivate dynamic facial wrinkles like forehead creases, 'frown lines' and 'crow's feet' around the eyes can quickly and effectively be treated with Botox® or the new alternative Dysport®. Both men and women are choosing wrinkle relaxers as a fast, temporary way of achieving a more youthful look. Botox® works by stopping or reducing muscle movement in the area(s) injected, thereby relaxing the area and eliminating the wrinkles Paula Snokhous P.A. offers Botox® and Dysport® at very competitive prices.
Facial fillers are very effective in helping to bring back volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. Most commonly, areas treated include nasiolabial folds (the folds running from the bottom corners of your nose outward towards the corners of your lips) and marionette lines (which run from the corners of your lips down to your jaw bone). They are commonly used as temporary lip enhancers, with injections being given in both the upper and lower lips, the lip ridge, and philtral columns (groove which runs from the bottom of your nose to mid upper lip). Fillers are also effective for areas that appear "hollow", and are even used to fill imperfections caused by chicken pox scars and other irregularities.
Injectable fillers such as Belottero, Radiesse® and Juvederm® have effectively replaced collagen and other older injectables, offering a wide range of uses and longevity. Facial fillers can last from several months to a year, and are often combined with Botox® or Dysport® to help products last longer and create pleasing results.
Chemical peels are an excellent way to refresh and rejuvenate wrinkled, spotted, scarred, and aged skin. A special chemical solution is applied to the skin to create an even and controlled shedding of damaged skin cells, revealing the fresh, smooth, unblemished skin just below the surface. This procedure stimulates new skin growth and restores a youthful appearance. We have a wide range of peels that are designed to penetrate several layers of outer skin.
- Salicylic Acid
- Lactic Acid
Micro-Needling with Platelet Rich Plasma
Micro-Needling is a popular non-invasive procedure in which tiny needles are used to create microscopic channels in the skin, allowing topical solutions to penetrate deeper into the skin and work more effectively. The micro-injuries created stimulate the formation of collagen and elastin, the two proteins predominantly responsible for the structure of the skin. It is a safe and effective way to smooth and brighten your complexion.
Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, has regenerative properties that allow for collagen production, which in turn firms and plumps the skin. PRP is obtained from a sample of your own blood that is centrifuged to separate your plasma from your red and white blood cells. The high concentration of platelets, stem cells and growth factors found in the plasma help your tissue heal and grow new cells.
When combined, these treatments can help correct skin concerns such as age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and more.
Like in the micro-needling above, tiny needles will create micro injuries to stimulate collagen production. At the same time, the device will shoot RF or radio frequency energy into your skin to treat scars and wrinkles. Together, the needles and heat energy stimulate your skin into creating new collagen and hyaluronic acid, which help repair tissue and hydrate your skin.
The Fractional CO2 Laser works on superficial areas of the skin, improving the appearance of deep wrinkles and fine lines, skin texture, blotchiness around the face and neck as well as acne and other scarring. It has also been proven to be a very effective treatment for sun damage.
PDO Thread Lift
PDO Threads are hypodermic needles preloaded with a synthetic PDO (polydioxanone) absorbable suture that stimulates collagen production and give you a natural looking lift. Your skin fully absorbs the PDO Thread within four to six months, without leaving any scar tissue. PDO threads are one of the most effective, noninvasive ways to lift loose skin without surgery, and to regain that natural "V shape" of the face. The procedure, often called the "lunchtime face lift", takes a short time and delivers results for up to 12 to 15 months.
Pellevé uses breakthrough radio frequency technology to gradually heat and energize dermal tissue with electro magnetic waves, causing collagen and elastin formation. As new collagen and elastin are formed in the treated tissues, the skin gradually becomes tighter, firmer and smoother. Pellevé is a gentle, FDA approved treatment for mild to moderate wirnkling and effective on all skin types and tones.
The ThreeForMe™ laser treatment is the proven way to solve all of your skin concerns at once. As we age we commonly feel that our skin appears to be tired and not as vibrant as it once was. This occurs due to aging, sun exposure and genetics. Now it is easy to get back the brighter skin you desire.
Only the ThreeForMe treatment can address three common skin concerns – wrinkles, sun damage and facial veins – all within one procedure. The procedure is only 30 minutes getting you the best results possible while still fitting within your busy schedule.
