3 Non-Surgical Ways To Look Younger

kansas city cosmetic surgery

When the holidays are in full swing, it usually means parties, parties and more parties. Whether you’re a guest or the host – one thing is certain – looking like a million bucks is a top priority. With that new party dress or that new tuxedo, the icing on the cake is a more youthful appearance.

There are several different nonsurgical procedures that will smooth wrinkles and brow furrows, plump lips, round out facial folds, and eliminate crow’s feet in time for your holiday parties.

Botox™ and Dysport: These are the brand names for purified proteins that, when injected into tiny facial muscles, relax and smooth the surface skin.  The procedure takes only 10 minutes, and you’ll see immediate results, with complete results being visible as early as 3 days and lasting up to 4 months.If you experience any swelling, simply apply an ice pack to the affected area. kansas city cosmetic surgery

Restylane, Beletero and Perlane: When injected into the skin, these FDA-approved products help restore fullness to the skin, while correcting moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. They can also be injected into the lip area to provide a fuller, more attractive appearance.  The procedure takes about 30 minutes from the time topical numbing/injected anesthesia occurs through injecting the product. Any redness, swelling or bruising typically vanishes in just a few days.

Artefill:  Unwanted wrinkles and folds in your face can appear as your skin loses its elasticity. Artefill/Bellafill™ is the first and only FDA-approved permanent wrinkle filler that can correct the specific wrinkles or folds that typically extend from your nose to your mouth.The procedure takes just 45 minutes and lasts for many months with some portion of it being permanent.  This is the only permanent filler on the market today! kansas city cosmetic surgery

An Unexpected Solution for your Depression

Have you been battling the blues…not quite feeling like yourself…and considering making an appointment with a therapist?  If so, you might just want to reconsider and schedule a consultation with us instead.

kansas botox3Good question.  Actually, research has shown that a single Botox™ injection can reduce the symptoms of depression by nearly 50%.Botox – which is typically used to improve the appearance of facial wrinkles – may actually (and surprisingly) be an effective treatment in the fight against depression.

Our emotions are expressed by our facial muscles, which then send feedback signals to the brain to support those emotions. Treating facial muscles with Botox™ seems to interrupt this cycle.

 

kansas botoxAccording to the research, positive effects on the patient’s mood have been observed in patients who’ve had Botox™ treatment for the frown lines in the area located above the nose and between the eyebrows.A group of 30 patients who exhibited high levels of chronic and treatment-resistant depression were enrolled in the study. These patients were then randomly assigned to receive a single injection of Botox™ or a single injection of a placebo.

Six weeks following the single treatment, the Botox™ group had an average of almost 50% reduction in depression symptoms vs. the slightly over 9% in the placebo group.

The investigators found that the effect size was even larger at the close of the study. Improvement was also reflected when other tools were used to gauge depression symptoms.

Botox™ may offer an innovative, effective, widely-accepted, and economic tool for the treatment of major depression. It should be noted that these findings have been repeated in two other studies since the original one was conducted.

It appears that smoothing out the muscles between your eyebrows can decrease the distress signals sent to your brain, boosting mood as a result.

Say goodbye to your depression and look years younger with Botox.

Fear Not – Botox™ and Fillers Are Very Safe!

botox Kansas city

So many women want to freshen up their look for the holidays but are afraid of cosmetic procedures such as Botox, facial fillers and laser skin treatments because they’ve heard horror stories about botched procedures that were performed at the hands of an inexperienced “doctor.”

But fear not!

A new study published in the JAMA Dermatology Journal this month reveals that these procedures are very safe, and are being performed with a very low rate of minor side effects such as bruising, lumpiness or skin discoloration, occurring in less than 1 percent of cases.

In the past several years, minor cosmetic procedures such as laser skin treatments, Botox™ and facial fillers have surged in popularity. Botox™ is typically performed to smooth out wrinkles, whereas facial fillers are used to plump up features that have been damaged by age or sun exposure. 
Lasers are used for removing hair and spots on the skin, as well as tightening the skin.Gone are the days of traditional facelifts – these procedures can now be performed without general anesthesia, and patients typically need only a day to recover.

So now that you know it’s safe, let’s get ready for the holidays!

To get you holiday-ready, this month I’m offering some pretty amazing specials on some of our most popular beauty treatments.

Don’t let your beauty routine get lost in the holiday shuffle

kansas city cosmetic surgery

 With Thanksgiving right around the corner the only bird people should be talking about is the turkey they’re looking forward to eating, not your “crow’s feet” or your embarrassing “turkey neck”!

So to get you holiday-ready, this month I’m offering some pretty amazing specials on some of our most popular beauty treatments.  But first, here are some tips on how get the most bang for your buck this holiday season.

  1. Do some research about the treatment and the doctor. Research the type of procedure you’re considering so you can be relaxed and ready.  You shouldn’t trust just anyone with something this important.  For instance, my experience with injecting and sculpting faces spans a period of over 17 years.  Talk to people and check out the doctor before you go.
  2. Familiarize yourself with common side effects. Most people feel nothing more than a prick and can return to work within an hour.  Some people experience some temporary swelling or bruising, but it goes away quickly.
  3. Be comfortable knowing the results may take some time to appear.  Don’t be alarmed if it takes a few days to see the results – it will kick in all at once, and you will love what it does to relax the lines that are driving you crazy
  4. Moderation is key!  Go conservative. You can always do a little more. Your goal should be to look fresher without looking totally different.
  5. Consider that getting treatments now may save money later.Younger ladies – if you know you don’t like wrinkles, start getting treatments BEFORE they set in.
