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:
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.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra injectable gel is a colorless hyaluronic acid gel that is injected into facial tissue to smooth wrinkles and folds, especially around the nose and mouth. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body. The role of hyaluronic acid in the skin is to deliver nutrients, hydrate the skin by holding in water, and to act as a cushioning agent.
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.
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® 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:
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.
LATISSE® is the first FDA-approved prescription treatment for inadequate or not enough eyelashes, growing them longer, fuller and darker.
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® 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.
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.
