Injectables are one of the most popular, quick skin and body treatments available. We offer four powerful types of effective solutions depending on what you are trying to accomplish!
Botox and Dysport
If you are looking to reduce creases on the forehead and frown lines between the eyebrows, Botox and Dysport should be a procedure to consider. Overall Botox and Dysport are very similar. Both are a type of botulinum type A used to relax the muscles that cause frown lines and other overactive muscles of the face, like forehead lines and crow's feet. It’s like comparing apples to apples. There’s a difference between a Fuji apple and a Gala apple, but they are still both apples. Dysport is a smaller-sized molecule so it’s measured differently than Botox. Both have been in use for years (Dysport in Europe only until recently) and have a high safety profile. Both can be used on other parts of the face and body, and should be injected every 3-4 months.
Dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face. As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow's feet become more apparent. The facial skin also stretches a bit, adding to this loss of facial volume. Other factors that affect the facial skin include sun exposure, heredity and lifestyle.
Dermal fillers can do the following:
- Plump thin lips
- Enhance shallow contours
- Soften facial creases and wrinkles
- Improve the appearance of recessed scars
- Reconstruct contour deformities in the face
- Decrease or remove the shadow of the lower lids
Dermal fillers can be very helpful in those with early signs of aging. At Focal Point Salon & Spa, we carry all the major fillers like Restylane, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Silk, Restylane Refyne, Restylane Defyne, Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Vollure, Voluma XC and Vobella. Results are seen almost immediately!
If you are looking for a nonsurgical treatment for extra dietary fat (like a double chin), KYBELLA® should be a procedure to evaluate. The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal. Focal Point can combine this treatment with a skin tightening treatment to ensure your final goals are achieved.
Collagen replacement is a process that helps with volume loss, wrinkles and deep lines in the body. At Focal Point Salon & Spa, Sculptra is quickly becoming one of the most popular procedures to give a patient a natural, softer look without the dermal fillers being used. In addition, Focal Point Salon & Spa are experts in using Sculptra in the buttock to help you with volume loss or if you’re looking for more curve. Sculptra helps stimulate your skin’s own natural collagen production to help restore its inner structure and increase facial volume that has been lost to aging. Sculptra is a one-time treatment regimen of up to four injection sessions that are scheduled about four weeks apart. Results can last up to 2 years.
