According to a report by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, some 15.7 million minimally invasive procedures were performed in the United States in 2017 alone. While these nonsurgical treatments have become increasingly popular for women, they also have gained popularity with men as well. Our med spa here in Round Rock is fully equipped with the latest and most innovative technology and products to help you achieve beautiful, natural-looking results.
BOTOX® Cosmetic & Dysport®
Every time you smile, frown, squint, or raise your eyebrows, you contract your facial muscles. Over time, these muscle contractions form lines and creases that result in wrinkles, which can contribute to an aged appearance. BOTOX and Dysport are injectable neurotoxins that can correct these types of dynamic wrinkles. They work by relaxing the muscles that cause them.
There are subtle differences between the products, which means that one may be a better fit for your needs. One of our experienced staff members will help you determine which product is best for you.
The wrinkle-correction properties of BOTOX and Dysport are often used to address:
- Crow’s feet
- Horizontal forehead wrinkles
- Frown lines
Both treatments last from 3 to 6 months; follow-up treatments are necessary to maintain your results. Many patients combine BOTOX and Dysport with laser skin rejuvenation treatments for more comprehensive aesthetic results.
Dermal fillers are also injectable products; however, they work a bit differently than BOTOX and Dysport. Dermal fillers are typically made from hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxyapatite. With age comes a natural decrease in the body’s collagen production. Reduced collagen can cause eyes to appear sunken, cheeks to look hollow, and wrinkles to deepen. Dermal fillers can be applied to these areas to restore volume.
We offer 3 types of fillers:
- JUVÉDERM® (HA filler) is often used to treat deep facial folds, and results can last up to 1 year.
- RADIESSE® (CH filler) stimulates collagen production, and results usually last for about 6 months.
- Restylane® (HA Filler) can be used to give the cheeks more volume and smooth out facial wrinkles, with results lasting up to 9 months.
In many cases, patients decide to combine fillers and neurotoxins for an overall more youthful and refreshed look.
Ongoing exposure to the sun, lifestyle, and genetics can weather our skin and create rough patches, hyperpigmentation, and wrinkles. One way to reverse these changes is with a chemical peel. This non-surgical treatment uses a chemical solution to remove dead skin and reveal new, healthier-looking skin. Different strengths and types of solutions can be applied to your skin depending on your unique needs.
Chemical peels are used to:
- Diminish the appearance of superficial scars
- Reverse sun damage
- Balance uneven skin tone
- Smooth out wrinkles and lines
One of our most popular peels is called the Vi Peel®. This product is different from other peels because it penetrates the dermis and combats your skin concerns at a cellular level. Basic peels do not penetrate as deeply. Another benefit to this type of peel is that it requires little to no discomfort and minimal downtime. Additionally, it’s safe and effective for all skin types!
In addition to nonsurgical approaches to facial rejuvenation, we also specialize in surgical facelift procedures, with a focus on creating natural and long-lasting results.
