Neurotoxins

Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and Daxxify are all neuromodulators used for cosmetic and medical purposes, but they have differences in formulation and application.

Botox, the most well-known, uses onabotulinumtoxinA to temporarily paralyze muscles, reducing wrinkles and treating conditions like migraines and muscle spasms. It’s widely used and has a proven track record.

Dysport, another option, also contains botulinum toxin but uses abobotulinumtoxinA. It spreads more easily than Botox, making it suitable for larger areas like the forehead. However, this can also lead to a higher risk of diffusion to surrounding areas.

Xeomin is unique because it contains only the active ingredient of botulinum toxin, without any accessory proteins. This minimizes the risk of antibody formation, potentially making it more effective over time for some patients.

Daxxify is the newest addition, designed to last longer than Botox by utilizing a special peptide that enhances its adhesion at the nerve-muscle junction. It offers a promising option for those seeking longer-lasting effects.

In summary, while all four neuromodulators work similarly by temporarily relaxing muscles, they differ in their formulations, spreading properties, and duration of effects. Choosing the right one depends on individual needs, preferences, and the advice of a healthcare professional.

Fillers

Dermal fillers are a popular treatment for restoring volume and fullness to areas of the face that have lost their natural plumpness. They involve injecting a gel-like substance, usually made from hyaluronic acid, into the treatment area. This filler binds to water molecules, resulting in a plumping effect that can smooth out wrinkles and fine lines.

Various types of dermal fillers are available, each with its own characteristics and benefits. Some are ideal for adding volume to the cheeks, lips, or chin, while others are better suited for filling deep wrinkles. The choice of filler depends on the individual’s needs and desired outcome. One advantage of dermal fillers is their immediate results, which can last several months to a year or more.

AquaFacial

The Aqua-Facial is a non-invasive and powerful treatment designed to refresh and enhance the appearance of both men and women. It is suitable for all skin types and addresses various skin concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, oily and congested pores, and signs of aging.

This resurfacing procedure involves four steps: cleansing, exfoliating, extracting, and hydrating, providing thorough care for the skin. The treatment offers instant results without discomfort or downtime, making it ideal for individuals seeking immediate improvements in their skin’s condition.

The Aqua-Facial is safe for most skin types and colors, including those with thinning, aging, dry, oily, or ethnic skin. However, individuals who have used isotretinoin in the past 12 months for severe acne, those with active herpes simplex cold sores or skin infections, or individuals with healing issues may not be suitable candidates for Aqua-Facial at this time. A medical aesthetician will assess your skin and medical history to determine your eligibility for the treatment.

Broad Band Light Therapy

Forever Young BBL is a non-invasive procedure that utilizes pulsed light to improve the clarity and youthfulness of the skin. This treatment targets hyperpigmentation and stimulates the skin, encouraging it to naturally combat signs of aging. One of the key benefits of Forever Young BBL is its minimal downtime, as there is no recovery period required. However, patients may notice that the pigment targeted during the treatment will begin to surface over the next week and flake off. In some cases, areas of the body may take longer to shed the pigment. It’s important to note that complete removal of all pigment is not guaranteed, and additional treatments or home care products may be recommended for optimal results. To maintain and enhance the effects of Forever Young BBL, the use of products like hydroquinone or other long-term pigment correctors is advised. Additionally, sunscreen is highly recommended during and after these treatments to protect the skin.

Scarlet RF

The Scarlet RF System is a cutting-edge non-surgical facelift procedure that utilizes short-pulse radiofrequency (RF) with microneedling technology to enhance skin density, improve firmness, and reduce sagging and signs of aging. This innovative treatment reconnects essential components of youthful skin, promoting optimized dermal health. Scarlet RF boasts shorter downtime and less discomfort compared to other procedures and devices.

FDA-approved for safety and efficacy in anti-aging therapy, Scarlet delivers RF energy beneath the skin’s surface through specialized microneedles. This process stimulates collagen production, the skin’s primary structural protein, promoting skin repair and tightening.

Scarlet’s scalp treatment targets various facial areas prone to aging signs, including forehead wrinkles, eyebrow drooping, crow’s feet, cheekbone and mouth sagging, smile lines, and jawline skin laxity. These concerns are typically only addressable through surgical facelifts, making Scarlet RF a revolutionary alternative.

Agnes RF for Acne

Agnes Acne Treatment is a microneedling procedure that utilizes radiofrequency (RF) technology to deliver subcutaneous pulses of energy, destroying oil-producing glands and effectively reducing the occurrence of whiteheads. This treatment, administered by a board-certified plastic surgeon, involves the use of sterile microneedles and a topical numbing cream for patient comfort.

The procedure targets affected follicles, delivering monopolar RF energy to the sebaceous glands, essentially killing them and stopping the production of acne-causing oils. A surface-level current is then applied to the face to remove any remaining impurities and cleanse the skin. Agnes acne treatments can address various issues such as acne scars, whiteheads, blackheads, bumps, pimples, and lesions.

Agnes stands out from other methods due to its ability to provide permanent results without the use of anti-acne drug therapies or causing damage to surrounding tissues. Patients typically experience significant improvement within a few weeks and several visits. This treatment offers a long-term solution for individuals with persistent cystic acne, providing clear and beautiful skin. If you’re seeking an effective and permanent solution for acne, Agnes RF treatment could be the answer.

Moxi Laser Treatments

MOXI is a non-ablative laser treatment designed to address pigmentation issues, tone, and texture of the skin. This procedure is particularly beneficial for combating uneven pigmentation and refining overall skin tone and texture as we age. MOXI is renowned for its gentle yet effective application, earning it the nickname “lunchtime procedure,” as it can be done quickly and conveniently, fitting into even the busiest of schedules.

Using non-ablative laser energy, MOXI revitalizes the skin by creating micro-coagulation zones. This process prompts the body to replace damaged cells with fresh, new ones, correcting the initial signs of aging. The treatment is suitable for all skin types and lifestyles, as it involves little to no downtime. MOXI is an excellent option for those looking to enhance their skin’s appearance without significant disruption to their daily routine.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a cutting-edge treatment that uses the body’s own blood to rejuvenate and restore the skin. By extracting platelets rich in growth factors from the patient’s blood and injecting them back into targeted areas, PRP therapy stimulates collagen production and tissue repair, improving skin texture, tone, and elasticity.
