Drastically Minimize Frown Lines for a Youthful Look with Dysport

For our clients here at Center for Facial Rejuvenation, wrinkles aren’t their style. For clients who want a natural look, there’s Dysport, a prescription injection proven to help smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows without changing the look or movement of the rest of the face. Untreated muscles still work normally, so you can continue to express feelings naturally.

“I love using Dysport on my clients who are seeing the effects of aging because it gives eyebrows a slight lift, drastically minimizes frown lines, and gives them a more refreshed, natural look” says Lacy Gill, CFR Nurse Injector.

Just like with BOTOX®, Dysport is a neurotoxin that blocks muscle contractions and is a noninvasive form of wrinkle treatment that yield great results with no down time.

To smooth the look of frown lines, Dysport is injected between and above the eyebrows to relax the underlying muscles beneath the skin. With those muscles relaxed and still, the skin above them appears smoother and more youthful due to less wrinkles.

“Many of my clients want to look their best without looking over done—they want a more subtle enhancement, and that’s why I love using Dysport” says Kathy York, Nurse Practitioner who specializes in Medical Aesthetics.

After the treatment, there may be a small red bump at the injection site, which will subside. Overall, it is quick and clients can go back to work / are able to go about their daily activities immediately.

With Dysport, lines are minimized, not your expressions. Call us today to book your complementary Dysport consultation!

Microneedling Treatment 101 at Center for Facial Rejuvenation

Microneedling Treatment 101:

Microneedling is exactly what it sounds like: a hand-held device inserts very fine, short needles that puncture the skin. This stimulates collagen and skin tissue production for smoother, firmer, and more toned skin. These punctures are only surface-level deep but the results are amazing and often show improved complexion and glow in a couple of weeks.

The microneedling treatment is minimally invasive, virtually painless and doesn’t require any downtime.

First, your licensed aesthetician will discuss your skin goals with you and will develop their plan of action to help you achieve the look you want. Then, a topical numbing cream will be applied to the area, making the procedure virtually painless. Then, they’ll start the treatment! All together, the process takes about an hour.

After treatment, clients can experience minor redness, irritation and dryness for a few days. Consider purchasing a physical based sunscreen for post care, which our center offers.

During the treatment, clients may choose to have Growth Factor serum applied. “Growth Factors are one of the best active ingredients for total skin rejuvenation” says Christie Dean. “Growth factors essentially communicate with your cells, prompting them to generate more collagen and elastin, which keep skin smooth and firm for a healthy, youthful glow.”

  

Microneedling Benefits:

After the treatment, many of our clients experience a more youthful, radiant glow as well as a supple plumpness.

When in a microneedling series, clients typically achieve a reduction in their fine lines, crow’s feet and wrinkles. Those who have acne scars and sun damage or discoloration will see visible improvement and a more even complexion. Pore size is also reduced as the collagen causes them to plump and appear shrunken.

According to a study conducted in 2008, participants whose skin was treated with four microneedling sessions spaced one month apart produced up to a 400% increase in collagen and elastin six months after completing their treatment.

 

Candidacy:

“Typically I recommend microneedling to my clients who are in good health and are looking to restore their youthful skin complexion. Also clients who are looking to improve slight scarring (often due to acne or aging), minimize pore size, or those looking to minimize fine lines” says Christie Dean. “While I do not recommend this procedure for those clients who have had radiation therapy or are pregnant/nursing, I encourage those interested to come in for a free consultation to see if microneedling is right for them.”

If you are struggling with acne scaring, sun damage, uneven complexion, fine lines, wrinkles, and skin that isn’t as tight as it used to be (to name a few), come in for a complimentary consultation and let’s put a treatment plan together for you!

VISIA Complexion: Redefining the Vision of Skin Care

For most, skin analysis is more subjective than objective. After a treatment, you could feel like your skin is improved, but have you ever thought “does it really look better?” or “Did I really get the results I wanted?”

At CFR, we have answers to your questions thanks to Canfield’s VISIA Complexion Analysis System. This multi-point positioning system and live image overlay make it easy to capture perfectly registered images to document progress over time. This means, you’ll get to see a quantitative and qualitative analysis of eight different skin features to determine your overall skin condition and health. The system rotates and easily captures left, right and frontal facial views for a full analysis to help show improvement and to further customize treatment plans.

 

With this technology, we are able to create a baseline of your skin and facial features, as we begin your facial rejuvenation with skincare, peels, lasers and other treatments. Then, after you start your treatment, you are able to see your amazing results past what the naked eye can see.

The eight different skin features include: spots, wrinkles, texture, pores, UV spots, brown spots, red areas and porphyrins (Bacterial excretions that can become lodged in pores).

Christie Dean, Licensed Aesthetician and Laser Specialist at CFR, says “Especially for new clients, I like to use the VISIA Complexion Analysis System to get an overall perspective. I walk my clients through an analysis of their skin and then work with them to develop a treatment plan and educate them on how each step of their treatment will enhance the health and appearance of their skin”.

We document your progress with before and after pictures so we can review how your treatment plan is improving your skin.

“As a Licensed Aesthetician and Laser Specialist, I love being able to use the VISIA complexion analysis on my clients” says Melody Richt. “It’s a great tool to help assess the overall health of their skin, educate on treatment options, and track their improvements with the custom treatment plans I develop. With the use of laser treatments like Broad Band Light (BBL), clients are able to not only visibly see their sun damage minimized, but they’re able to see in a 3-D view how their treatments are improving the quality of their skin”.

Schedule your free consultation today and we’ll discuss your goals with you and, paired with the VISIA results, develop a treatment plan to help get the look you want to achieve.
