Botox & Fillers
Lorelee Scipione, PA-c will conduct a thorough consultation to recommend the best aesthetic treatments for you
Many wrinkles are actually creases that have been worn into the skin by making the same expression thousands of times. These “expression lines” often called frown lines or crows feet, are due to contraction of a muscle under the skin. Botox, a purified protein, can dramatically smooth out and soften wrinkle lines. It has been safely used for over 10 years and is approved by the FDA. A few drops of Botox are injected with a tiny micro-needle precisely into the muscle to weaken and relax the muscle. As a result, the skin overlying the muscle relaxes and the wrinkles disappear. Botox is a safe, effective treatment to reverse the visible signs of aging.
The most common areas treated are frown lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet and horizontal forehead lines. Fine wrinkles around the mouth can also be treated. Botox treatments are simple and take only a few minutes. No preparation is needed prior to a treatment. No sedation or local anesthesia is required, allowing you to resume normal activities immediately. Botox treatments are a highly effective means of reducing facial wrinkles leading to a more youthful vibrant appearance. The majority of patients find that their results continue to improve with sequential treatments. Treatments generally last between 3 to 6 months. Each sequential treatment tends to last longer. Many patients combine Botox injections with dermal fillers to dramatically revitalize your face.

Injectable skin and wrinkle fillers have added new dimensions to the field of cosmetic surgery, allowing new forms of facial rejuvenation and wrinkle treatment without surgical intervention. Injectable skin and wrinkle fillers are used to increase tissue volume (as with lip augmentation), reduce wrinkles, and improve skins overall contour.
Many patients have been very pleased after receiving facial filler treatments in conjunction with Botox injections.
