Botox® Cosmetic has been used since the 70’s for the treatment of various conditions that involve muscle spasm. By the early 90’s the benefits for the treatment of facial wrinkles was recognized and today the injection of Botox® Cosmetic has rapidly become the most frequent nonsurgical anti-aging aesthetic procedure performed. Botox® Cosmetic can be the key for prevention of facial lines and muscular contractions.
Dysport® is very similar to Botox® Cosmetic. Although the term “Botox” has become synonymous with the non-invasive treatment of wrinkles, Dysport® is used just like Botox® Cosmetic and has the same treatment indications. For those who want the results of Botox® without the wait, Dr. Hovsepian offers Dysport® injections for the correction of dynamic wrinkles. Dysport® softens the appearance of frown lines, forehead furrows and crow’s feet, in as little as 1-2 days, for a younger look that may last up to 6 months or longer.
Juvéderm® is a dermal filler composed primarily of hyaluronic acid. This is a substance already found in the human body that acts to provide volume to our skin. Juvéderm® represents one of the most commonly used dermal fillers on the market. Juvéderm®, a smooth gel dermal filler, is used to instantly smooth away moderate facial wrinkles and folds, perioral lines such as smoker’s lines, prejowl areas, cheeks, under eyes and lips. One treatment from Dr. Hovsepian can give you smooth and natural-looking results lasting up to a year.
Restylane® is a safe dermal filler that is used to add volume to the skin and correct facial wrinkles and folds like the folds that occur from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth (nasolabial fold). Restylane® is a biodegradable, non-animal based, hyaluronic acid used as a dermal filler to restore volume and fullness to the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that already exists in the human body. Restylane® is completely biocompatible and, among all dermal fillers used today, has one of the longest track records for being safe.
Perlane® is a non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid gel, which means Perlane® contains absolutely no animal products. Since hyaluronic acid is a natural occurring substance found in the skin, Perlane® is completely biocompatible with human hyaluronic acid. Also in the Restylane® family, Perlane® dermal filler is very similar but has a higher concentration of hyaluronic acid and is used for deeper folds.
Prevelle® a new and exciting hyaluronic acid (HA) gel, is injected just under the skin’s surface to temporarily fill wrinkles for a more youthful appearance. Prevelle® has proven to be effective in smoothing lines and wrinkles with minimal irritation. Prevelle does not contain animal products and no pre-testing is necessary before use. Prevelle® consists of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance already found in your body. In most cases, you can be treated with Prevelle® during your very first visit. A non-surgical treatment for wrinkles with soft, natural results and convenient, same day procedure. Ideal for delicate skin area and has little to no downtime.
Radiesse® is a safe skin filler commonly used today. It’s a synthetic filler and not a hyaluronic acid filler, which is biologic. Radiesse® is composed of very tiny, smooth calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres in a gel carrier. Calcium hydroxylapatite is biocompatible and has been used extensively as an implant in other areas of medicine. It is the primary mineral component of our teeth and bones. Radiesse® is a temporary dermal filler like Restylane® and Juvéderm®.
Skin resurfacing targets the skin to improve its quality and appearance, correcting many years of sun damage. Specifically, it can improve the appearance of fine lines, remove superficial blemishes, correct many pigment problems, and provide a smoother texture to the skin. There are a wide range of resurfacing methods available using various chemicals, lasers, or dermabrasion. Excellent results can be obtained using many of these methods.
Given that hands are routinely ignored when it comes to sunscreen, sun damage plays a big part in the “aging hand” syndrome. Sun exposure over the decades sets up a prolonged cascade of liver spots and brown patches that can keep popping up long after we’ve learned to stay out of the sun. Add that to the color changes brought about by the darkness of veins, and your hands can sometimes look as if they’ve been bruised and battered in addition to looking more skeletal.
Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition in which a person sweats excessively. This condition can be extremely noticeable and embarrassing, especially when sweating from the palms, armpits, or face. To treat this condition, Dr. Hovsepian injects the affected area with a neuromuscular agent, such as Botox® Cosmetic or Dysport®. These injectables act to decrease the amount of sweat occurring in the affected area.
You Weren’t Born with Skin Problems. When you are a baby, your skin is perfect. It is soft, firm and glows with health. But as you mature, usually sometime in your 30′s, your skin begins to lose its ability to stay healthy. As you age collagen breaks down, skin loses its elasticity, cell turnover and the flow of moisture from deep within begins to slow. The damage gets worse from sun, stress, environmental assaults and smoking. The results may be tight, dry, blotchy, wrinkled skin with discoloration.
