BOTOX® Cosmetic

The most popular cosmetic injectable on the market today, BOTOX® injections provide immediate and effective treatment for facial lines and wrinkles associated with age, stress, and worry. BOTOX® Cosmetic, a less invasive alternative to facelift surgery, smoothes frown lines, crow’s feet, and other signs of aging, producing a more youthful and vital facial appearance. Dr. Kjar has helped thousands of patients rejuvenate a healthy, youthful facial aesthetic using BOTOX® Cosmetic. BOTOX® injections are administered directly to the muscles that cause facial wrinkles, causing a temporary paralysis in these small muscles. Shortly after Dr.Kjar administers a BOTOX® injection, treated facial muscles relax, and lines and wrinkles fade. Maximum results are seen a few days after treatment, On average, BOTOX® treatments lasts three to six months. BOTOX® treatments are quick, highly effective and virtually painless.

DYSPORT®

Dysport is a prescription injection for temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines), forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet.

This FDA-approved injectable helps diminish the appearance of unsightly lines by reducing muscle contraction in the brow and forehead area. It works beneath the skin to block the signal from the nerve to the muscle, and in turn improve moderate to severe frown lines.

BENEFITS OF DYSPORT®:

  • FDA-approved
  • Treatment only takes minutes
  • Can be used in the forehead, between the eyes, or crow’s feet
  • Beautiful results for moderate to severe frown lines

PLATELET-RICH PLASMA THERAPY (PRP)

PRP helps with:

  • Brightness in the skin because it is increasing blood flow and creating new blood vessels
  • Texture by increasing collagen production. Collagen acts like the mattress of the skin
  • Increases the fat cells that create a smoothing and rounds that looks younger and healthier
  • PRP helps to offer a subtle “time reversal” where people will ask why you look so healthy or what looks different

When used topically after a microneedling or venus viva treatment, it is absorbed into the skin:

  • aids in healing
  • acts as a “fertilizer” to stimulate local stem cells to grow and repair tissue
  • helps to grow healthy new skin

Post Treatment:

  • Will be puffy, tight, hot for 1 hour
  • No exercise for at least 2 hours and after that for up to 24 hours stick to low-impact
  • Can Ice but don’t mash

After the PRP injection it is recommended that you keep a healthy diet and regimen at home. Skin care products that will help sustain your results are:

  • Peptides
  • Chemical Peels (1 month post treatment)

  • Filler
  • Sculptra
