Botox® and Dysport™
As we age, we begin to develop dynamic wrinkles (present when forming expressions) on our face. These can turn into static wrinkles (which are present even at rest). BodyLogicMD of Charlotte now offers neuromodulators known as BOTOX® and Dysport™ to help halt the aging process in its tracks! Botox® and Dysport™ are some of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedures for wrinkles because they are effective, safe, and can be performed quickly with no downtime.
Botox Cosmetic® and Dysport™ are the trade names for Botulinum toxin A. This purified protein complex is formulated to safely inject into select parts of the skin. It then blocks the signal that the nerve is sending to the muscle, thereby preventing it from contracting. When the muscle does not move, the lines or creases we typically associate with aging are reduced. Both are a simple, nonsurgical treatment, administered by our nurse practitioner who will determine the amount and type of neuromodulator that is best for you.
The most commonly treated areas include:
As we age, we naturally begin to lose fat and the bone structures that support our skin. This results in volume loss and sagging skin, contributing to an aged appearance of the face. Fillers can help restore this volume loss and support the structures of the face to restore a more youthful looking appearance of the face.
Dermal fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance which is found in the dermis of the skin. As you age, you start to lose hyaluronic acid which causes the skin to lose structure and volume, contributing to the formation of wrinkles and folds. Dermal fillers add volume to the skin by replenishing the skin’s supply of hyaluronic acid. This instantly helps support the skin by replacing the lost volume, giving a natural softer appearance.
Where can dermal fillers be injected?
Dermal fillers can produce long-lasting effects, but they are not permanent solutions. For many, the semi-temporary nature of fillers is another benefit, allowing individuals to explore their aesthetic options without the risk of permanent change. We offer both Restalyne® and Juvederm® products. Our highly trained nurse practitioner, Erin Gagne FNP-C can help you determine which product is right for you. Schedule your free consult today!
Skin Rejuvenation with RF Microneedling
BodyLogicMD of Charlotte now offers advanced skin rejuvenation with the Genius RF device. The Genius device directs radiofrequency energy into the deeper layers of the skin via microneedles to cause remodeling and rejuvenation. This treatment, especially when used with PRP, improves skin firmness, smoothness and youthfulness.
As we age, our skin thins, reducing its strength, elasticity and plumpness. This leads to fine lines and wrinkles, as well as loose sagging skin. Traditional microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment which uses a device with fine needles to create tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin. This triggers the body to think there has been damage which causes it to create new collagen and elastin.
RF microneedling adds the element of energy to microneedling, taking it to the next level for the ultimate collagen stimulation. This added dermal energy further enhances skin tightening and scar reduction. The best part is that the needles are insulated, so the top layers of the skin are protected, making it safe for all skin types. When PRP is added to the RF microneedling, the results can be dramatic!
What conditions does it treat?
Some patients can see changes in their appearance soon after the procedure. The treatment consists of 3 sessions each a month apart. Your body will rebuild collagen throughout this process, and you will see gradual improvements over the next 6 months. The best part is it helps stimulate your own body into action, so results can last for years. As always, results can be magnified by a healthy lifestyle and quality skin care regimen
