Injectable cosmetic procedures are the mainstay of aesthetic treatments – that is, assuming a basis of good skin care and sunscreen use. Whether used as preventive measures, to treat early signs of aging, or as a compliment to a surgical or laser procedure, injectables such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and Juvéderm are quick, easy and highly effective procedures. Dr. Vessely has extensive experience with injectables and can help you determine which treatment is the best choice for your individual goals.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is used to weaken muscle contractions in very specific muscles. Typically used to treat frown lines, forehead creases, crow’s feet, it may also be used to improve upper lip lines, platysmal bands in the neck and to lift the downturn at the corner of the mouth. Injectable fillers are used to restore volume to areas of the face that lose volume due to injuries, acne scars as well as the natural process of aging. Dr. Vessely only uses absorbable fillers with a proven safety record. The Juvéderm family, by Allergan, provides a nice spectrum of fillers to use, and Dr. Vessely will work with you to decide which is best to help you achieve your goals. Voluma can lift and highlight your cheeks while Vollure fills finer lines in the lower face. Volbella is designed for lip lines and Juvéderm Ultra and Ultra Plus provide volume for lips and facial lines. These fillers typically last between 12 and 24 months, depending on the filler and the area treated.
Many first time patients are concerned that they will look “too different” after treatment. Dr. Vessely’s goal with each patient is to achieve a natural result that restores his or her unique features to a more youthful state. Helping you look like you, just younger.
Topical Skin Care
Dr. Vessely offers select products which she has thoroughly researched and can make recommendations to customize a skin care regimen for your needs. When you meet with Dr. Vessely, or any of our medical professionals, you will hear that the first step in skin care is the daily use of a broad-spectrum sunscreen. Sunscreens of SPF 15 or higher are recommended year-round. Applying a sunscreen should be a part of your daily routine. Be advised that not all sunscreens are alike; some only protect against UVB rays, others (broad-spectrum) provide protection against both UVA and UVB. All of our sunscreens contain zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide – two great defenses against the sun’s harmful rays.
