It’s inevitable that wrinkles will come with age, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re helpless in dealing with the marks of time. BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the safest, most effective methods of smoothing out wrinkles. It works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles responsible for wrinkles in the face while leaving the muscles that control facial expressions and other necessary movements undisturbed. We also provide XEOMIN® and Dysport® as alternatives.
The result is a significant reduction in the appearance of crow’s feet, fine lines, and other facial wrinkles. Dr. Portale is well versed and highly qualified to perform BOTOX® treatment in adherence with the unique requests of his patients. Although BOTOX® Cosmetic is mainly known for smoothing out wrinkles and taking years off patients’ faces, it also has some other medical uses. For example, BOTOX® injections can be used to reduce excessive sweating, neck spasms, and symptoms from TMJ clenching and grinding such as severe headaches. If you’re looking for a practice that is fully capable of providing you with the best results possible from BOTOX® treatments, we believe that we can be of service to you. Please contact us for further information about BOTOX® Cosmetic.
Dermal fillers will volumize creases and folds in areas of the face that have lost fat and collagen as we age. After age 30, we all lose approximately 1% of hyaluronic acid from our bodies. Hyaluronic acid is the natural filler substance in your body. The face starts to lack volume and appears aged with deeper nasolabial folds, unaesthetic marionette lines, a deeper mentalis fold, thinning lips, and the turning down of the corners of the lips. Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Restylane and Juvederm, are then injected extraorally underneath these folds to replace the lost volume, creating a younger look. Dermal fillers can be used for high lip line cases, asymmetrical lips around the mouth, lip augmentation, and completing cosmetic dentistry cases by creating a beautiful, young-looking frame around the teeth. The effect of dermal fillers typically last anywhere from 6 to 12 months at which point the procedure needs to be repeated. BOTOX® injections, XEOMIN®, Dysport®, and dermal fillers are procedures that take anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes.
