Frown Lines 101: What Causes Them?Over time, repeated movement of the facial skin by the muscles forms frown lines between the eyebrows.
Wrinkles Are Not Only Age RelatedRown lines are "dynamic"—they happen because of the way a person's face moves. Because frown lines are created by facial movements such as frowning or squinting, they may develop even in younger adults. Dysport® is used to treat moderate to severe frown lines in adult patients less than 65 years of age.The muscles above and between the eyebrows contract and tighten, and can cause wrinkles. Dysport® blocks the nerve signal that causes these facial muscles to contract. This ultimately results in a localized reduction of muscle activity in the treated area and temporarily stops the contraction of these muscles.
Dermal FillersThirty minutes to smoother, youthful skin
At Silk™, We Strive to Offer the Highest Quality Fda Approved Dermal Fillers Available in the Us.At silk™, all consultations with the joseph a. astaphan, md are complimentary. We recommend that you schedule a consult to discuss your area/s of concern with the doctor. Dr. astaphan will be able to tell you what is involved with the treatment, which product will suit your needs and how many syringes you will need for adequate correction.
Dermal Fillers Are Being Used MoreMore to help reverse the changes associated with aging. Our goal, at silk, is to help return the skin to its original youthful state. Dermal fillers can give a more natural appearance than surgical face lifts. Fillers such as restylane®, perlane®, juvederm® and radiesse® can be used either to fill in shallow skin wrinkles and lines or to go under the skin to fill out broad depressions like the nasolabial folds ("smile lines"). Juvederm® and restylane® are also very useful to plump up the lips. More recently, they are proving helpful to fill in hollows and grooves in the region between the cheeks and the lower eyelids- those “dark shadows” under the eyes (called tear troughs).
As We Age, We Experience Volume Loss in the Face.Gravity also adds to this “aged” look by causing areas of the face areas to droop, resulting in grooves, lines and shadows. Fillers are a safe and effective choice for replacing soft tissue volume loss. Fillers like juvederm®, restylane®, perlane® and radiesse® can restore the face to a more youthful appearance. Fillers may also be combined with botox to enhance the cosmetic results.There is no reason why having an injection of a dermal filler should be a painful, dreaded visit. Injections of restylane®, perlane® radiesse® or juvederm® can cause considerable discomfort if the proper care and technique are not used. This is something that you do not need to be concerned with when receiving treatment at the silk laser and aesthetics centre. Dr. astaphan's expertise in dentistry, maxillofacial surgery, and medicine, allows him to offer you the most advanced pain free experience (I.E. : Dental blocks) while receiving aesthetics services. As an added benefit to our patient having dermal fillers injected in the lips or around the mouth, dental blocks, as needed, are included in our dermal filler fees.
How Are Fillers Administered?Fillers are injected through small needles. All patients are first treated with numbing cream on the area/s to be injected. If the lips or nasolabial folds (smile lines) are to be injected, a numbing cream is applied, and then several small dental injections of local anesthetic are given to totally numb areas for a truly painless procedure.
The Filler Is Then Injected in the Area/S of TreatmentThe actual injection only takes minutes. Ice is placed immediately after the injections. The treatment area/s usually swell somewhat but most patients are able to return to work the next day. Rarely, some patients experience more significant swelling. For this reason, a first time filler patient may want to be treated closer to the weekend. It is also a good idea to refrain from aspirin or drugs that delay clotting for 1-2 weeks to decrease bruising when injecting fillers.
With Any Area/S of Dermal Filler Injection,It is better to achieve the desired look with optimal correction than to under treat and be unhappy with the lack of change. Patients with moderate to deep nasolabial folds (smile lines) may require a minimum of 2 syringes of filler 1 per each side, while lips and tear troughs may be restored with just 1 syringe. The biggest problem is under treatment or not using enough filler. A patient is better off saving up for two or more syringes than under treating the folds with a single syringe and have unsatisfactory results.Dr astaphan will have the patient return in two weeks to check the results. Occasionally a touch up may be performed at the follow up appointment. It is important to view filler injections as a transforming process. Sometimes multiple appointments are required to provide appropriate result that patient desires.
Dermal Filler Injections for a Non-Surgical Nose JobsThe non-surgical nose job, sometimes referred as the “lunch time nose job or 15 minute nose job”, is a new and exciting alternative available to patients interested in improving the shape of their nose without undergoing invasive surgery. At silk, the benefits of nose jobs without surgery are immediate results, quicker healing time, and little or no pain.
What Is a Nose Job Without SurgeryPatients who are interested in nose surgery may be surprised to find out they are actually candidates for a non-surgical nose job. This popular new treatment is an excellent alternative to the traditional nose job. A non surgical rhinoplasty involves using injectables such as botox®, radiesse®, restylane® and juvederm® to shape and contour the nose. Unlike a surgical procedure, these fillers allow patients to obtain quick results with little or no down time.
Am I a Candidate for Non-Surgical Nose JobIf you are interested in a non-invasive, non-surgical nasal contouring with fast and satisfying results then a 15 minute nose job is for you.Patients interested in a nose job generally visit a surgeon to get rid of bumps, bulges and indentations on their nose. When there is not a major nasal imbalance, a non-surgical nose job can provide patients with outstanding results and an improved overall appearance. If the nasal deformity is major or you are looking to reduce the size of your nose, you are not a candidate for the 15 minute non-surgical nose job.
15 Minute Nose Job, “Lunch Time Nose Job”The new 15 minute non-surgical nose job provides patients with a contoured, shapely nose, enhancing their overall appearance and increasing their self confidence.At silk, a non-surgical nose job is relatively painless and can be completed in one short office visit. During the treatment, dr. astaphan will inject the facial filler into the desired areas of the nose to help camouflage imperfections.
