Botox

Who should have this procedure? Some facial lines are caused by repeated muscular movements in the tissues under the skin. Because these movements are repeated over and over in the same part of the delicate facial tissue, eventually skin is damaged and permanent lines develop. You may look like you are always frowning or squinting. If you have these pronounced, moderate to severe face wrinkles, Botox® will smooth their appearance without the need for surgery. What is involved in the procedure? Treatment with Botox® involves several injections of the Botox® serum into the muscles under the skin. Because Botox® reduces movement of the treated muscles, the appearance of frown lines and crows feet will be greatly reduced within just a few days. What is the normal healing time after this procedure? Since Botox® treatments are simple injections, your treatment will take only minutes and you will have virtually no period of recuperation. Some patients even stop by the doctor’s office for treatments during their lunch hour. What results can I expect? After your Botox® treatments, you can expect significant reduction in the lines in your face that make you appear worried or older. Although individual results vary, the treatment should be effective for a period of 8-12 weeks to four months before you will need additional injections.

Juvederm

What Is Juvederm? Juvederm is a filler that has been approved by the FDA. It can be used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles or add volume to areas on the face. Juvederm is made from hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that is naturally found in the connective tissues in the body. The results of this procedure can last up to one year. Who Is A Good Candidate For Juvederm? This procedure is great for patients who have moderate to severe folds and wrinkles. It is also great for patients who want to increase the fullness of their lips or fill out the areas around their eyes or at the top of their nose. What Can I Expect? Prior to administering Juvederm, Dr. Zieg will apply a topical anesthetic to the areas that will be treated. After that, he will inject the Juvederm using a very fine needle. Are There Any Side Effects Associated With Juvederm? Hyaluronic acid is very safe because it is naturally found in the body. Swelling and redness are common side effects that may last a few days. Some patients may also experience skin firmness and mild bruising. These problems may last for a few days also.

Sculptra

What Is Sculptra? Sculptra is a derma filler that is used for cosmetic purposes. It is made out of polymer poly-L-lactic acid, which is what helps stimulate the growth of new collagen. Sculptra was originally designed for HIV patients because they have a tendency to develop facial lipoatrophy, which is a condition that causes the skin tissue to degenerate and leads to premature aging. In 2009, the Food and Drug Administration approved Sculptra for cosmetic uses. Who Can Benefit From Getting Sculptra? If you have any of the following, then you can benefit from Sculptra:
  • Jaw line laxity
  • Smile lines
  • Nasal labial folds
  • Recessed cheeks
What Can I Expect From Sculptra? Dr. Zieg will use a fine needle to inject Sculptra into the skin. Discomfort can be reduced by using a dental block or numbing cream. After you get your first treatment, you will need to get another one within the next four weeks. The results of Sculptra can last up to one year. Are There Any Side Effects Associated With Getting Sculptra? Bumps, lumps, bruising and swelling are some of the possible side effects of Sculptra. The good news is that most of these side effects go away without any medical treatment. During your consultation, Dr. Zieg will discuss what you can expect from this procedure.
