Before And After Photos
Before and After Botox- Here you can see the incredible improvement by using Botox on Mandi's crow's feet.
Under the Eyes-
Injectable hyaluronic fillers, especially Prevelle Silk, are proving to be a great option for correcting an area that previously has been very hard to treat. If you have a hollow area under the eyelid combined with a natural dark color in your skin, you know that it can produce a tired look that is very difficult to conceal with makeup. Adding volume with a filler improves the contour of the lower lid, which will give the appearance of being more youthful by eliminating the hollow and its shadows.
Before and After Prevelle Silk: This is a 37-year-old who asked us for help with the dark circles under her eyes. Nurse Injector Jill Maze injected Prevelle Silk in the hollow area under her eyes with this fabulous result. Just a small amount makes a big difference!
Before and After Prevelle Silk and Dysport- Here is a perfect example of dramatic improvements that can be made without surgery, recovery time and at a relatively low cost. She is 48 and was concerned with aging around the eyes. Nurse Injector Jill Maze used Dysport in her crow's feet and a tiny bit of Prevelle filler under the eyes. What a difference!
Before and After Prevelle Silk: This is a very active 60-year-old who wanted her face to look as young as she feels inside. She particularly mentioned the hollows under her eyes which she felt make her look older and tired. Jill Maze injected Prevelle Silk in her tear troughs. Isn't it amazing what a change a little Prevelle can make?
Botox is used to prevent the muscle activity, which causes wrinkles on the forehead.
Below are two patients in their early 40's who are pictured lifting their eyebrows before and after their Botox procedures. Both said they look at least five years younger now.
The frown line in the area between the eyes (glabellar region) is treated with Botox to stop the muscle motion. Juvederm XC or other wrinkle fillers are added if you have more pronounced wrinkles here.
Although "bunny-nose" wrinkles are cute for kids, they are not at all attractive once we get older. A bit of Botox makes them disappear. Wrinkle fillers are often used to contour the bridge of the nose, if that's a concern.
Mouth-To Create A More Cheerful Expression
Botox can bring a real smile to your face! As you age the corners of your mouth can turn down. When you add a tiny bit of Botox to the DAO muscles that cause this, the effect is striking. The corners come up to a normal level, and lose that scowling downward turn. You look happier. Want even better news? Since it doesn't take very much Botox, treating the DAO area costs much less than treating any other area. (Now you're really smiling!)
Juvederm XC works beautifully to fill in the fold that runs between your nose and the side of your mouth (See the photo below). A tiny dose of Botox with the addition of Juvederm corrects pursed lip wrinkles above the mouth.
Before and After Juvederm XC- Here is a 40-year-old patient before and after wrinkle fillers.
Injectable fillers are the best way to restore full youthful lips. You can choose to create greater definition of the lip line, add volume to the lips and even lift the corners of the mouth to create a more cheerful expression.
Before and After: This is a 39 year old patient who was concerned about her lips and nasiolabial folds. She received one syringe of Juvaderm Ultra Plus to her lips and one syringe of Juvaderm Ultra to the nasiolabial folds. The patient had a great result and restored fullness in her lips.
You Pick Your Look-
One of the things everyone loves about injectable fillers is that you can choose to use a lot or a little depending on the look that you want to achieve. Use Juvederm to restore natural youthful looking lips like those pictured above, or use more Juvederm Ultra Plus for a voluptuous glamorous look like below. It's completely up to you!
Again, BOTOX® can be used if muscle activity is creating wrinkles. In many cases Juvederm alone will give you the contouring correction you want.
Before and After Juvederm Ultra Plus XC:
This is a 44-year-old woman who has a very public job. She was concerned that the aging around her mouth did not match her warm personality. Nurse Injector Jill Maze, RN used three syringes of Juvederm Ultra Plus to fill in her nasolabial folds and the "marionette" lines under her mouth.This is a great example of the artful use of fillers, and she is thrilled with her results.
Juvederm is used to contour the jaw line and is very effective when the laxity of the skin is minimal.
Because hyaluronic acid fillers mold so beautifully, they can be used to fill in depressed areas, contour irregularities, skin defects and acne scars all over the face.
Studies show that 93% of the patients treated with Juvederm XC had less pain than when treated with the non-lidocaine formulation of Juvederm.
We did our own side-by-side study and here is what our patient had to say:
"I recently got to try Juvederm XC and I must say that I am a believer in this product!
Jill first applied a topical anesthetic around the nasolabial folds (creases that run from my nose to the corners of my mouth). She then proceeded with a very small injection of the Juvederm XC, waited 2 or 3 seconds for the numbing agent to take effect, and then completed the
injection. Other than the initial needle stick (which is really quite minimal), the whole process was painless. Compared to previous procedures I was actually able to sit back and relax.
At the last minute, we decided to add some filler to the lower corners of my mouth, where we had NOT applied a topical. Using the same process - a small injection, wait a few seconds, and then complete the injection - it was still a very comfortable process. I really believe that I could have done without the topical altogether, which will save me 20-30 minutes of "numbing time" on my next visit.
Post-treatment was also a much improved experience. I typically review a lot of paperwork during the work day, so I am constantly looking down. The XC formulation really made a difference, as I was so much more comfortable compared to previous treatments without XC.
My recommendation -- If you decide to use a filler, be sure to ask for
Introducing Jill Maze, RN
Jill Maze is a welcome addition to our practice. Her patients attest to both her caring bedside manner and her skilled professionalism.
