Botox® is an excellent way to relax the facial muscles improving the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows and forehead, temporarily correcting the visible signs of aging and stress. With every facial expression a person makes, the skin folds and with age loses elasticity, which then causes a wrinkle to form. Botox® works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the eyebrows and forehead.
Botox® is administered with only a few injections with minimal discomfort and little recovery time. At Dermatology Associates of Wisconsin, our experienced medical staff will give you a natural, more youthful appearance without affecting your ability to smile, laugh or show expression. To maintain optimal aesthetic results, we suggest your next Botox® cosmetic treatment be performed no later than 4 months from your last treatment.
Dysport® is an injection used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines without changing the look of your whole face. The untreated facial muscles still work normally, allowing you to freely show facial expressions, such as smiling, in untreated areas. Dysport® injected to the muscles blocks the signal from the nerve to the muscles, resulting in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily preventing tightening of the muscles that cause frown lines. It is important to inform a dermatologist about any medical conditions you may have before use of Dysport®. Offered only at our Kenosha Clinic.
Healthy youthful skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called haluronic acid. Over time exposure to the elements can reduce the amount of hyaluronic acid causing your skin to lose volume and creating wrinkles and folds.
Juvederm® is an FDA approved medicine made of hyaluronic acid that helps temporarily replace the natural hyaluronic acid your skin has lost adding volume and smoothing away the facial wrinkles and folds. Because your body naturally makes this compound there is no need for allergy testing. Results are virtually immediate, and there is little discomfort depending on where the treatment is performed (some sensitive areas may require topical or local anesthesia).
Radiesse® improves volume and lift and helps diminish the signs of aging because of the calcium-based microspheres and gel that the product contains. Radiesse® also provides structure and stimulates your own natural collagen to grow and achieve long-lasting facial enhancement. Offered only at our Kenosha Clinic.
Pulsed Dye Laser for Facial Veins
The pulsed dye laser is selectively absorbed by blood vessels. It destroys tiny spider veins on the face and can destroy the tiny blood vessels found in Poikiloderma (reddish-brown discoloration of the neck and upper chest). It takes 2 or 3 treatments to completely eliminate the veins.
