What is the difference between aesthetic fillers and neurotoxins injections for facial aging?

Aesthetic fillers are injectables used to instantly smooth and plump the skin. Most of these are
made with hyaluronic acid. This acid is present in all living organisms. It is natural to your body
and adds volume and restores a more youthful appearance by filling wrinkle lines or areas
needing more fullness. Many of the brands we use in our office are FDA approved for
superficial, medium and deep wrinkles; vertical rhytids (smoker lines), smile lines, nasolabial
folds and marionette's lines. Proven to give beautiful and long lasting results from 6 months
and up to 18 months depending upon the filler selected.

Neurotoxin injections, most commonly referred to as “Botox™”, are injections that smooth
deep facial lines by relaxing the muscles that form facial wrinkles. Most common areas are the
vertical, angry lines between your brows, forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet. These are also FDA
approved for forehead and glabella areas. Botox, a brand of neurotoxin, has been prescribed
for decades for treatment of muscle spasms and other non-cosmetic areas. Neurotoxin results
last for 3 to 4 months.

Latisee: You may never need mascara again

latisee-troy-miLatisee: You may never need mascara again

Nothing frames the eyes and makes them pop like longer, fuller, darker lashes. One easy way of obtaining beautiful long lashes is with a topical medication called Latisse. When Latisse was first introduced, I tested it on several women who work in my office to first hand witness the results. They were so impressive, that I now carry the product in my office and offer it to my patients. Some of the women don’t need to wear mascara any longer.

Latisse solution is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis (inadequate or not enough lashes) and is applied daily to grow the eyelashes, making them longer, thicker and darker. If you have noticed a change in your lashes over the years, you may want to consider using Latisse – the only FDA approved lash hair growth stimulator with studies proving both safety and results.

My patients have been extremely pleased with the results of Latisee over the last few years. It truly helps make a statement with your lashes!
