BOTOX (Botulinum Toxin)
A botulinum toxin cosmetic treatment is a simple, non-surgical procedure that smoothes the deep, persistent lines between the brows. Fast, simple, and minimally invasive, with no down time or recovery botulinum toxin allows most people return directly to work or normal activity following treatment.
A natural, purified protein administered via a via a few tiny injections directly into the overactive muscles that cause lines to form, botulinum toxin works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscles. The entire procedure takes approximately ten minutes. Discomfort is minimal and brief; most patients compare the sensation to a bug bite. Dr. Sessa may choose to use a local anesthetic cream or ice to minimize this. Once the injection is complete, there is usually no discomfort.
Within days, you’ll see a marked improvement, which may continue to improve for as long as a week and should last up to four months.
Restylane™ and Radiesse
Restylane™ and Radiesse are next-generation injectable facial fillers used for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, the lines between the nose and mouth.
The similar treatments of Restylane™ and Radiesse involve injections into the skin with a very fine needle. Upon injection beneath the skin’s surface, the products add natural volume and lift to smooth facial wrinkles and folds. The gel integrates into dermal tissue, and then attracts and binds to water molecules to help maintain volume.
The results are instantaneous, producing long-lasting, natural enhancements that are gentle and safe to the skin.
