Botox Juvederm Portsmouth Newport RI Best Self

Get your best Botox in Portsmouth with real, noticeable results,  no surgery and no recovery time, there are many reasons why Botox has  been chosen by millions of women and their doctors.

BOTOX® Cosmetic (or Botulinum Toxin Type A) was FDA approved in 2002  and is one of the most popular and effective treatments for facial lines  and wrinkles. BOTOX® injections smooth the signs of aging by relaxing  underlying facial muscles. *BOTOX® Cosmetic can take years off of the  face’s appearance by reducing frown lines, crow’s feet, and other minor  facial wrinkles. BOTOX® Cosmetic temporarily relaxes the muscles that  cause wrinkles while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed  appearance.

The ideal candidates for BOTOX® treatment are patients who wish to  see an improvement in their facial lines and wrinkles but do not want to  undergo facial surgery. BOTOX® injections are complete in just a few  minutes. *Results are cellular and take three to seven days to fully  appear. Follow-up treatments are recommended every four months.

There is no recovery period following BOTOX® treatment, and normal activities can be resumed immediately.

Areas That Can Be Treated With Botox:

  • Lip Lines (Smokers Lines)
  • Wrinkles on the bridge of the nose (Bunny Nose)
  • Gummy smile
  • Chin wrinkles (Orange Peel Effect)
  • Fine lines (crows feet) and wrinkles around the eyes
  • Brow Lift

Pricing depends on the number of injections (units) you need. Sheila will evaluate your facial structure and desired areas to treat in order  to determine the amount of BOTOX® injections for the best outcome. If  you have had BOTOX® in the past, you may have an idea of injections  needed.

A collection of fillers – made for different needs!

JUVÉDERM® is the #1 selling collection of hyaluronic acid fillers in  the US. Each product in the JUVÉDERM® collection of fillers adds volume  to a different area of the face to lift cheeks, smooth parentheses  lines, or plump the lips. The results are subtle and long-lasting.

Volbella Portsmouth Newport RI Best Self

Juvéderm® VOLBELLA® XC is the latest advancement in the Juvéderm®  range of facial fillers, developed specifically for your lips and mouth  area. It is the first and only FDA-approved filler to increase lip  fullness and correct perioral lines for up to 1 year.  It has been  specifically developed as a smooth gel to give a soft, natural feel. The  gel fills in lip lines and wrinkles while the hyaluronic acid attracts  and retains moisture, so results can last up to a year.

Juvederm Volbella uses Vycross technology which tightens and cross  links the hylauronic acid to improve duration. It has the lowest HA  concentration, lowest affinity for water, and lowest cohesivity which  makes a soft smooth gel appropriate for adding volume to lips and  softening the appearance of the perioral lines.

In a multicenter, double blind, randomized study:

80.3% of patients had a clinically significant improvement in lip fullness at 3 months
61.8% of patients had a clinically significant improvement in lip fullness at 1 year

65.4% of patients had a clinically significant improvement in perioral lines at 3 months
66.2% of patients had a clinically significant improvement in perioral lines at 1 year

Overall,  96.1% of patients were satisfied with the improvement of their lips and perioral lines.
Volbella is injected into the lips using an ultra small needle.  Ice or a lip block may be performed for comfort.

Recovery with Volbella is minimal allowing you to return to your  usual activities after the procedure. You may experience mild side  effects such as redness, tenderness, bruising or swelling right after  the procedure.

Within the first 24 hours after your treatment, it is best to not do  extreme exercise and to limit sun exposure. Make-up can be applied 2  hours after the procedure.

Kybella Filler double chin absorb dietary fat Portsmouth RI Best Self

KYBELLA® Double Chin TreatmentAre you one of the millions of Americans with moderate to severe fat below the chin, also known as submental fat or “double chin”?
KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of anyone with a double chin.What causes a double chin?A double chin occurs when a subcutaneous sheet of fat around your  neck sags and causes a wrinkle. Many individuals have a hereditary  predisposition to them. Other reasons include:

  • Retaining too much water in the chin area
  • Natural storing of excess fat
  • Muscle loss or weak muscles in the chin area
  • Natural progression of aging

As you age, you lose muscle, so the muscles in your chin weaken, and  your skin grows looser. These factors may combine to leave you with a  double chin, but the major cause of double chins is excess body fat.  Some people carry fat on the chin more easily than anywhere else, and  obesity and double chins go hand in hand.
How does KYBELLA® work?The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid.  Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids  in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the  fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a  noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these  cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not  expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.

RI Best Self Portsmouth RI Latisse Best Self

  LATISSE® is the first FDA-approved prescription treatment  for inadequate or not enough eyelashes, growing them longer, fuller and  darker.

Discover the LATISSE® difference.

LATISSE® solution is a growth treatment  for hypotrichosis (inadequate or not enough eyelashes).  In fact, it’s  the first FDA-approved treatment clinically proven to grow lashes. And  it’s the first lash growth product of its kind available by  prescription. So you’ll need to talk to your doctor to see if it’s right  for you.

LATISSE® grows lashes longer, fuller and darker.

LATISSE® solution is a once-nightly  treatment you apply topically to the base of your upper eyelashes, as  instructed by your doctor. Then, gradually, the results come in. You may  start to see more length in as little as 4 weeks and you should achieve  full growth in 16 weeks. It’s not an illusion of growth. It’s real lash  growth.

How LATISSE® works.

LATISSE® makes lash growth possible  because of its active ingredient: bimatoprost. Although the precise  mechanism of action is unknown, LATISSE® is believed to  affect the growth (anagen) phase of the eyelash hair cycle in two ways:  first, it increases the length of this phase, and second, it increases  the number of hairs in this growth phase.
