Botox and Dysport are used to prevent, soften and weaken deep lines on the skin’s surface. By relaxing and stilling the muscles, the skin above them turns smoother. The most common areas treated are forehead lines, around the eyes (“crow’s feet”), and glabella lines between the eyebrows (the “eleven’s”).
Both are derived from Botulinum toxins, which are safe in small amounts. Both are nonsurgical forms of wrinkle treatment that have quick recovery rates. Still, these two treatments have their differences. For example, Dysport begins to work as soon as 2-4 days after injection, and has its full effect in about 1 week. In comparison, Botox typically takes up to 2 weeks for full effect, but may last longer. Schedule a complimentary consultation with us to learn about the best wrinkle treatment for you.
BOTOX® for Hyperhidrosis
Botox® (onabotulinumtoxinA) is injected into the skin to treat symptoms of severe underarm sweating (severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis) when medicines used on the skin (topical) do not work well enough in people 18 years and older. In a clinical study, the duration of response in patients receiving Botox® treatment was 201 days, or 6.7 months. Individual results may vary.
If you do any of the following to cope with sweating, book a complimentary consultation today:
- Change your clothes frequently
- Put absorbent materials under clothing
- Avoid certain fabrics or clothing styles
- Seek medical attention and treatment
Dermal fillers are injectable treatments that restore volume and fullness to the face; they can lift and contour cheeks and plump lips. They can also soften facial wrinkles and nasolabial folds, commonly known as "smile lines" or "laugh lines", giving you a smoother and more youthful appearance.

Sculptra® Aesthetic is an injectable cosmetic filler that can be used to restore your skin’s inner structure and increase facial volume that has been lost due to aging or illness. It works with your body within the deep dermis, rather than topically, to treat deep lines, creases and folds. Sculptra contains poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a bio-compatible synthetic substance that works with your body to stimulate your skin’s own natural production and helps to rebuild lost collagen. Our body slows collagen production by about 1% per year throughout adult life. By age 40, most people have up to 20% collagen loss. Sculptra works subtly and gradually over time for a more youthful-looking appearance that can last up to two years.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet rich plasma, commonly known as PRP, is an anti-aging treatment that uses the growth factors in your own blood platelets in a concentrated preparation, to respond to tissue injury and stimulate collagen and new growth. During this minimally-invasive treatment, your blood will be drawn and placed in an FDA-cleared centrifuge, where the platelets can be separated. Then it is re-injected into the skin with minimal discomfort, where it’s numerous growth factors will initiate cell repair and promote skin rejuvenation. PRP can improve skin tone and texture, soften nasolabial folds and fine wrinkles around the forehead, eyes, lips, and neck, restore lost facial volume, and target both acne scars and stretch marks. Initial results begin to show in as little as one treatment and continue to improve over time. For optimal results, a series of 3 treatments spaced 4-8 weeks apart is recommended, as well as maintenance treatments over time. To best target your skin concerns, a customized treatment plan can combine PRP with other treatments, including Botox, dermal fillers, and lasers.

Kybella is a non-surgical, FDA-cleared, injectable medicine used to rid the submental fat under the chin permanently. Commonly referred to as the “double chin,” it can be caused by genetics, aging and weight gain. With this safe, state-of-the-art treatment, double-chin fat cells are permanently destroyed, resulting in a sleeker, smoother contoured jaw line and profile.
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat EVER AGAIN!
A complimentary consultation is required; you and your Nurse Injector will customize your KYBELLA® treatment regimen, including how many treatments you need, based on the amount of fat under your chin, your desired profile and your aesthetic goals. Most patients require 2-4 treatments, 6-8 weeks apart, for permanent results.
