PRIMER ON INJECTABLES

shutterstock_91754579A SERIOUS LEVEL OF SKILL IS REQUIRED TO PERFORM INJECTABLE TREATMENTS and to GET BEAUTIFUL, DESIRABLE RESULTS. These are experts and are qualified to give injectable treatments:  Board Certified Plastic Surgeons; Facial Plastic Surgeons, Dermatologists or Oculoplastic Surgeons, specially trained RN’s, CRN’s or PA’s who work directly under a surgeons supervision.  The KEY WORDs to look for in their advertising is:  Specially Trained Expert Injector.   These people have specialized training, are certified in injectables of every kind and have a vast knowledge base of their best uses, the risks involved, their history and much more.

PEOPLE NOT QUALIFIED TO PERFORM INJECTABLE TREATMENTS: include aestheticians, hair stylists, cosmetologists, dentists or medical professionals who have not been specifically trained to use today’s injectables. They are not Expert Injectors.

TRUST YOUR DOCTOR’S OFFICE:  The only place you should get injectable treatments performed is in your doctor’s/surgeon’s office or Medi-Spa within that office under the physician’s direct supervision.  DO NOT GET INJECTABLES AT YOUR LOCAL SPA or SALON!  They are not qualified nor medically equipped for routine injections or for emergencies in cases of injury or health complications.  They are not required to follow medically defined sterility and health standards and they are not supervised by an on site doctor who is responsible, trained and experienced.  HTTP://www.davinciplastic.com.

INJECTABLES DO PREVENT LINES and WRINKLES and LIFT SAGGING SKIN…Today’s injectables are truly amazing and they do achieve results either instantly or gradually and subtly.

BOTOX®  is the well known “denerving agent” used to smooth out existing lines and to prevent future ones.  FDA approved in 2002, Botox works by relaxing/paralyzing the muscles in motion that create smile lines, forehead lines, parentheses between the eyes and Botox, (Botulinum Toxin Type A) has been used therapeutically since the early 1950’s for treating spasms, uncontrollable blinking and  much more and today successfully treats chronic Migraine Headaches, excessive sweating etc. and is a leader in cosmetic anti aging treatments.

HYALURONIC ACIDS:  HA is a naturally occurring body substance that declines with aging.  Similar to a sponge, HA attracts and binds to water to keep the skin hydrated and well contoured.  Hyaluronic acid fills in the spaces between collagen and elastin fibers.  Replacing it with injectable treatments means putting back into your body a substance natural to and recognized by the body…it’s accepted, works well and restores youthfulness!  Juvederm, Perlane and Restylane are top choices to replace depleted Hyaluronic Acid.

COLLAGEN BOOSTERS:  These provide long lasting results while stimulating your own collagen production.  Sculptra offers results often lasting up to 24 months and is excellent for filling in hollow cheeks, under eye hollows, nasolabial folds, thin lips and is used in combination with Restylane e.g. to create smoothness around the eye and tear troughs. RADIESSE also is very popular as a collagen booster and provides long lasting results while your own collagen is renewed.

FAT GRAFTING/FAT INJECTIONS using your own body…when injected into targeted areas, plumps up, restores contour, fills in hollows and rejuvenates an aging face, hollow hands and more.  It’s natural, with no risk of rejection or reaction.  Results are subtle and continue over time.

BOTTOM LINE ON INJECTABLES:  We help you decide your best choices to achieve more volume, lifting, to banish lines and wrinkles and to restore a more youthful look!

Guys and Gals Nose Makeovers…by Dr. Steven Davison

Long Lasting Facial Makeovers…Nose Jobs

Well, I’ve been getting you up to speed on long lasting Facial Makeovers, using techniques that effectively remove 10 years from your face, and keep you looking years younger always.  Today, we look at the importance of the nose and how aging affects it and…facial balance.  Nose jobs (Rhinoplasty) is one of the most elegant surgeries performed and can dramatically restore youthfulness, symmetry and balance to any aging face.

Why Rhinoplasty?  Each year hundreds of thousands of men and women decide to have their noses reshaped, repaired and done over for a host of reasons including: injuries that caused a deformed nose and hindered normal nasal function and/or left the nose misshapen (Deviated Septum) etc. Noses change with aging causing a droopy tip or bulbous tip, there may be humps and bumps or “ski slope” appearance; the nose may be too wide, to narrow, too weak and much more.  All these and other concerns  about form and function affect overall facial appearance and often…self esteem suffers.

Facial Balance & the Nose…When the nose is a problem (see above) it usually affects facial balance and symmetry…which is crucial to looking young.  Also, an out of balance nose can highlight a weak chin or other facial defects.  Bringing the nose into correct balance and proportion for your face is done by correcting size, shape and position.

The nose is the most defining characteristic on the face…for this reason nearly one million Americans have nose jobs every year.

Benefits of Nose Reshaping (Rhinoplasty) include:

  • To create or restore function
  • Give you the nose you’ve always wanted and never had
  • Change the size, shape & position of the nose
  • Create a more youthful overall facial appearance
  • Achieve a harmonious blend with your other facial features
  • Can be combined with other facial procedures to optimize your results
Rhinoplasty is one of today’s most popular long lasting facial makeover options. It is one of the many age defying solutions people choose to take years off their face now…and to keep looking years younger always!
It is a safe, effective and often the only way to get the outcomes people really want.  I perform it to restore function and to create aesthetic beauty and youthfulness.  For more information about the procedure and how it’s done see: www.davinciplastic.com and look at the page on Rhinoplasty.
Revision Rhinoplasty…is nose surgery done to correct or make changes from a previous nose surgery.  I am specially trained and skilled in revision/restorative surgeries and combined with my superb knowledge of the complex nose and facial structure, along with honed skills and years of experience…I get results that my patients love wearing.
Well,  men and women and “couples” are showing up in aesthetic clinics around the world to take advantage of today’s many advancements in cosmetic procedures…and to safely and effectively combat aging.  We cannot stop the clock…but we can and are doing a terrific job of holding at bay the visible signs of aging and keeping millions of people looking as young as they feel.
Come on in and let’s get to work!
