There are so many options I see for “anti-aging” bombarding me everywhere I look. How do I know what to choose?
Navigating choices can be daunting. We suggest creating a comprehensive plan and goals for aging, including skincare, collagen stimulation, wrinkle relaxers, and fillers. Assessing progress is simpler with open communication with your provider.
I am not happy about some of the aging changes I am seeing, but I am also afraid of looking “overdone”. Can I still have injectables treatments?

What is the difference between the skin care sold in your office compared to the thousands I see at department stores, pharmacy or beauty stores?
Our daily skincare impacts our skin's appearance and aging. While trial-and-error options abound, medical-grade products stand out. The products that we sell are not available at your local store. This is due to the rigorous testing and formulation for absorption, they yield faster, noticeable results, enhancing the efficacy and longevity of other treatments.
Can lasers, injectables or threading treatments replace surgical correction- like a facelift or eyelift?
The concise answer is 'No' Patients often show desired results by lifting jowls or eyelids, but non-invasive treatments can't provide surgical-like, lasting changes. Injectables relax muscles, reposition fat pads, and stimulate collagen, aiding a youthful look and complementing surgical procedures or standalone office treatments.
Are injectable treatments safe to use long term?
Botox (and other neurotoxins), have been utilized for both medical and aesthetic purposes for decades have seen a climbing role in the Aesthetics field. These muscle-relaxing injections target specific muscles and are gradually absorbed over several months, boasting a robust safety record even in patients with diverse health issues. Composed of naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid, dermal fillers necessitate skilled administration for safe, natural, and effective results, effectively retarding the aging process. Collagen-stimulating injections harness substances present in our bodies (calcium hydroxyapatite or poly lactic acid), encouraging collagen production. With a history in medical usage, these treatments effectively combat aging, guided by our extensive experience in performing countless procedures.
What is the best kind of filler or wrinkle relaxer?
Choose the one that suits your body best! With vast injectables expertise, We are familiar with various products. Different fillers excel in specific areas for optimal outcomes, and together, we determine the right fit for desired results.
When should I start aesthetic treatments?
Timing is flexible; both prevention and maintenance matter. Using injectables early can hinder deep wrinkles. Collagen stimulation helps maintain the results, curbing aging's effects like skin laxity. Wrinkle relaxers suit all ages but are unable to erase deep lines. Fillers restore youth and reduce wrinkles, especially as collagen declines with age. Realistic goals and a planned approach yield lasting, gradual results.
What is the main difference between Botox and Fillers?
Botox, Daxxify, Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau target muscles to relax them, improving wrinkles caused by facial expressions. These injections, commonly for the upper face, don't fill lines but affect muscles. Fillers, however, can target lines and volume loss areas like cheeks to aid under eyes and smile lines. Drawing from years of experience, we recommend a combination of both treatments for effective, natural results.
I have seen some very scary complications online- how common are these adverse reactions?
From our experience, adverse effects are extremely rare. Safety comes first. We prioritize cautious treatment for optimal long-term aesthetics. Guided by experience, we tailor suggestions and preferences. We cultivate lasting patient relationships, navigating aging together purposefully. We stay updated through training, eschewing trends in aesthetic medicine blindly.
I see some variation in prices- including some facilities that offer deep discounts on their Botox, fillers and in-office treatments. How can I be smart as a consumer?
Pricing hinges on many factors. Very low injectable prices often obscure quality and tend to lead to more complications. Offering advanced education, experience, quality products, and support, we prioritize value over discounts. While cost is a factor, a sound aesthetic partnership should outweigh saving pennies for long-term benefits. You are worth it!
