Look as good as you feel with BOTOX® COSMETIC and dermal fillers
Do you look in the mirror and think you look older, stressed, tired, or rundown, even though you feel great? Have you noticed deep lines, wrinkles, folds, and creases developing on your face?
Gravity and repetitive muscle activity (frowning, squinting, etc.) combined with decreasing collagen levels from sun exposure, the environment and aging result in lines, wrinkles, and permanent furrows. And since we lose volume in the skin as we age, hollowing, folds, and creases can develop on the face, neck, and chest.
In the past there were no effective treatments to stop or reverse this process. But it’s a whole new world since the arrival of BOTOX® COSMETIC, Dysport and dermal fillers like Juvederm™, Voluma, Restylane, and Radiesse. These safe, noninvasive treatments can take years off your appearance leaving you looking restored, refreshed and revitalized — all with no downtime!
Experience the Reflections difference — natural looking results
At Reflections, we realize that the injection of Botox, Dysport and dermal fillers is as much an art as a science. We have injected many thousands of patients, and our goal is to help you look your very best. It’s not about looking artificial. It’s about the most natural looking results possible. We want everyone to notice that you look great, but to wonder about your secret to looking great!
Our physicians are expert injectors — it’s what they do all day, every day. They consult for leading manufacturers, training doctors from across the country in leading-edge injection techniques. They have even appeared on media outlets like NBC’s Today show and CBS Sunday Morning, showing the latest approaches to getting great results.
Reflections measured approach to using Botox, Dysport and dermal fillers has been recognized in the community as well as the media for providing noticeable, natural looking results. You’ll experience a relaxed, more youthful look, with softer facial contours, and an overall healthier appearance, but you won’t look “done.” And results are long lasting.
For many patients we combine these therapies, such as injecting Botox and fillers on the same day. A common scenario is to use Botox for the dynamic wrinkles (wrinkles present during a muscle activity) and filler for the static wrinkles (wrinkles present at rest). Botox is more commonly used in the upper face and fillers in the lower face. Some patients also have laser skin rejuvenation therapy performed in the same session.
How do BOTOX® COSMETIC and Dysport work?
Botox and Dysport are injectable purified proteins that treat areas of the face where lines, wrinkles and furrows are present. These injections block nerve impulses, muscle activity that causes the frown lines is reduced, and a smoother look results. The procedure is fast and comfortable, as tiny specialized needles are used for the injections. The results are noticeable just a few days after your treatment and are long lasting.
Is Botox right for me?
Botox is wonderfully effective on the lines and wrinkles caused by everyday facial muscle activities like frowning or squinting. At Reflections, we use Botox to treat frown lines, crow’s feet, worry lines, vertical lipstick lines and other areas of the face. Botox is also used to create a pleasing and natural-looking brow lift, leaving you with a refreshed and alert appearance.
How long do the effects last?
The results of your first Botox treatment typically last for about three to four months. We recommend having your next treatment before the effects of the last treatment fully wear off so the results of your next treatment last longer and your smoother, more youthful complexion can be maintained.
How do dermal fillers work?
There are many different types of dermal fillers on the market today. The most popular dermal fillers are made of injectable hyaluronic acid, a substance very similar to one that occurs naturally in the body. Our physicians will inject the filler along the length of the wrinkle or fold until reaching maximum correction. You’ll see the volume beneath the skin increase, creating a smoother, more youthful appearance. Special needles called cannulas are used (an advanced technique available at only a select few cosmetic practices) and lidocaine blended into the fillers ensure optimal comfort during the procedures. You’ll go home already loving your results.
Are dermal fillers right for me?
Gravity and repetitive facial muscle activity combined with a decrease in collagen as we age can result in deep folds and creases, particularly on the lower part of the face. Dermal fillers address this issue of volume loss, filling the voids under the skin and erasing creases. Dermal fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm (just two of many options) will work best to restore your more youthful looking skin.
Hollowing of the cheeks and the loss of volume in the mid-face is a common development as we age, and can be the root cause for many lines, wrinkles and folds in the lower face. Using dermal fillers like Voluma, Radiesse and Sculptra to gently re-inflate the face gives the cheeks their apple back and lifts the skin that can cause jowls to sag and folds to form around the mouth.
Dermal fillers are also a wonderful way to achieve natural looking, fuller, more kissable lips. All areas of the lips can be treated to transform your smile. Adding definition to the lip line, turning the corners of the mouth upward for a happier appearance, enhancing the curve of the lips for a more sensual look, and adding volume to the upper lip are just some of the ways we can enhance your look.
Dermal fillers are a great way to fill in the “tear trough” lines and hallow areas below the eyes that give the face a gaunt and tired appearance.
Chest, neck, and hands
The delicate skin on your chest, neck and hands can also benefit from dermal filler to correct for sun damage and loss of volume due to aging. Treating any or all of these areas with dermal fillers can take years off your appearance.
Dermal fillers can also be helpful to “fill in” acne scarring.
How long do the effects last?
The effects of most dermal fillers, such as Restylane and Juvederm, last about nine to twelve months after the first treatment, and then a little longer thereafter. Radiesse typically lasts between twelve and fifteen months. Sculptra, a filler injected monthly for two or three months, can be effective for as long as two to three years.
