Fine lines and wrinkles are not just caused by aging, but from constant repetitive movements and muscle contractions as well, which means they can develop in younger adults as well as older adults. Wrinkles can result in an angry, sad, tired, or simply aged look when left untreated. As we age we also lose volume in our faces from diminishing fat pads, bone resporption, decrease in collagen and elastin production, and several other factors. Dermal fillers can help replace this lost volume but also enhance other features that you may be desiring about your look. Our offerings of injectables can help smooth out wrinkles, lessen the signs of aging and providing facial balancing by treating areas of concern with neurotoxins, dermal fillers, PRP or PRF, or a combination of these services.
BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines in adults – to help them look better. Treatment requires minimal downtime. You can return to your daily routine immediately after you leave. You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines with peak action at 2 weeks. It delivers predictable, subtle results, so you look like you, only with less noticeable facial lines. BOTOX® Cosmetic was the first FDA approved injectable which has led the way for new treatments as well.
XEOMIN® (incobotulinumtoxinA) for injection, for intramuscular use is indicated for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines (glabellar lines) with corrugator and/or procerus muscle activity in adult patients. Xeomin can also treat many other areas including crows feet and forehead lines. Xeomin® is unique. It was the first clinically proven anti-wrinkle injection uniquely purified to remove proteins unnecessary for treatment which is why it is considered the “pure” toxin. You will notice mild softening of lines 3-4 days post injection with the peak of action at 2 weeks post-treatment so you have a natural change.
Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA) is an FDA-approved neuromodulator injectable treatment for the temporary improvement of the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines (glabellar lines) between the eyebrows and other concerning lines in adults. When a neuromodulator is injected into underlying muscle tissue, it causes the muscle to relax and gradually smooth out the appearance of wrinkles. Dysport is fast-acting and has been shown to see improvement in their wrinkles in as little as 2-3 days and can last up to 5 months. Dysport is an excellent choice for people who exercise daily and/or are athletes.
Dermal fillers smooth out facial wrinkles, fine lines, deep lines, enhance, define, and moisturize lips, smooth lines around the mouth, improve the look of dark under eye circles and hollowing, add lift and volume to the cheeks, improve downturned mouth, improve the appearance of jowling, and more. My goal here at Alpenglow Aesthetique is to enhance your natural beauty and restore volume lost. As we age we lose volume in our faces from diminishing fat pads, bone resporption, decrease in collagen and elastin production, and several other factors. Dermal fillers can help replace this lost volume but also enhance other features that you may be desiring about your look. Dermal fillers are made out of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) such as Juvederm, Restylane, Versa, RHA, Beletero etc.; Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHa) such as Radiesse; and Poly-L-Lactic Acid (PLLA) such as Sculptra. We currently offer HA fillers here at Alpenglow Aesthetique, but may offer other options in the near future.
