Lose the Lines this Summer with Botox® / Dysport®

Infini sweat gland ablationHow about a Botox or Dysport treatment for summer? Typically in this sunny season we love to look our best. We’re in natural light and on the go, making memories with family and friends. A refresh to tired eyes or forehead lines might be just the perfect brightening lift you need to boost your confidence. Both of these treatments provide an easy way to lift brows and lose the lines without downtime. You won’t have to take a hiatus from your busy lifestyle.

Botox and Dysport are well-known neuromodulators manufactured by different companies. Both products use botulinum toxin, and are very comparable. Much like the difference between Coke and Pepsi, it’s a preference by the patient and Dr. Guy Cappuccino as well as his wife Dr. Rachel Cappuccino our experienced and licensed RN Injectors Angel and Renee.

The repetition of muscle contractions create the wrinkles that patients like to reduce. Over time, squinting and smiling results in crow’s feet, forehead lines, and lines between brows. Injected Botox or Dysport diminishes the appearance of these lines, and provides a subtle lift to the brow. These neuromodulators temporarily reduce muscle contractions, which causes the muscles to relax. Relaxed muscles aren’t able to fully respond to nerve impulses. This results in eyes that look refreshed and awake, a smooth forehead, a lifted lip, or a softened chin.

Botox and Dysport can give you a youthful, natural result. As we say in the aesthetics world, fresh not frozen! Come in for a consultation with Dr. Cappuccino, Angel, or Renee and we’ll customize a treatment plan for your desired result.

Look Great Now and Later with Bellafill

Bellafill provides beautiful, natural-looking volume to soften smile lines and acne scars. It is proven to be safe, effective, and long-lasting with minimal to no downtime. Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers that are temporary and require repeat touch-ups, Bellafill is a unique FDA-approved collagen based filler that works in two ways. This means less time spent at appointments, and less time under the needle. Let’s talk about the beautiful benefits of Bellafill.

How is Bellafill unique?

Bellafill is unique from other fillers because it works in two ways. Immediate volume takes place as the smooth collagen gel filler lifts depressed skin to the level of the surrounding skin in smile lines and acne scars. Long lasting improvement takes place as the polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres also create a matrix to support your body’s own collagen production. As we age, our bodies naturally produce less collagen. This support structure from the microspheres gives lasting improvement by restoring your skin as opposed to temporarily filling it. The result is a smoother, more youthful appearance.

How long will it last?

Results are proven to last through 5 years in smile lines, and 1 year in acne scars. At the 5-year mark 83% of patients were still satisfied with their smile lines results. At the 1-year mark 90% of patients were still satisfied with their results for acne scars. Bellafill creates natural-looking, enduring results. Your body naturally metabolizes and absorbs the collagen over time, but the volumizing results of the support matrix from the PMMA microspheres lays the foundation for long-term smoothness.

Bellafill can be used alone or in combination with other treatments.  Contact us and get your own beautiful benefits with Bellafill!
