Injectables for a Spring Facial Refresh

Spring brings with it a desire to refresh and renew. You can experience the vitality of Spring through your own facial rejuvenation with injectables. Here’s a little information about each injectable option we offer at our office:

BOTOX is a well known, FDA approved, safe injection using botulinum toxin type A. It halts muscle movement that is the cause of the wrinkles by blocking nerve signal to the muscles. When the muscles aren’t constricted, the lines are relaxed and the wrinkles are prevented from going deeper. Optimal results are seen within a week or 2, lasting for several months. Some of the most popular cosmetic uses for Botox are for smoothing:

  • horizontal forehead creases
  • vertical lines between the eyebrows (“eleven lines”)
  • crow’s feet around the eyes
  • nose furrows
  • smoker’s lines around the lips

JUVEDERM is a volume restoring injectable filler that smooths out lines and folds using hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a naturally occurring substance that attracts water to the area its injected. It is a highly cross linked smooth gel that is also offered in the Juvederm XC Ultra and XC Ultra Plus formulas, which are the first FDA approved HA fillers for all skin tones and color because of no risk for hyper pigmentation. Juvederm results are instant with long lasting results for 6 months and up. It is perfect for many needs of the mid to lower face:

  • fill lines on the side of your nose (nasolabial folds)
  • rejuvenate creases on the sides of the mouth
  • plump up lips

RADIESSE is a semi permanent filler that creates scaffolding for your own collagen to grow around, naturally rebuilding in a lasting way. This gives immediate and ongoing wrinkle reducing results that remain beyond when Radiesse breaks down and dissolves. It uses calcium based microspheres to rebuild your skin’s foundation with results that last a year or longer for rejuvenated:

  • cheeks
  • nasolabial folds
  • smile lines

SCULPTRA is the longest lasting filler, proven to last up to 2 years or longer. This is nearly twice as long as the majority of hyaluronic fillers. It is composed of PLLA, poly L lactic acid, that stimulates the body’s own collagen renewal for incredible enduring rejuvenation that is natural looking. Sculptra is a great base for a Liquid Facelift that offers lasting volume and skin thickness. It best addresses:

  • aging skin folds
  • indented chin surfaces
  • hollow cheeks
  • sunken eyes

VOLUMA XC is a thicker hyaluronic acid filler that instantly adds volume to the cheek area to fill in lost volume that comes with aging. It is the first FDA approved injectable filler for complete cheek volume restoration. It lifts and sculpts the cheeks for a gentle, subtle Liquid Facelift that lasts up to 2 years. Also, Voluma XC is better suited to fill more difficult folds and wrinkles. The lifting and sculpting benefits rejuvenate:

  • nasolabial folds
  • cheek volume and definition
  • chin shape and smooth lines

As expert injectors, Dr Davison, myself and our PA Nora, are ready to help you rejuvenate and refresh your face for the Spring and beyond. Please visit www.davinciplastic.com to schedule your consultation today.

Non Surgical FemGen Rejuvenation

Childbirth, age and hormone changes can dramatically affect a woman’s vulvovaginal region. This most intimate area can be a source of embarrassment and discomfort, but it is such a vital part of who women are and shouldn’t cast that shadow on their identity and confidence. Fortunately, there are a variety of options to address some of the issues causing discomfort. I’m going to highlight a new non surgical option that we offer at Davinci Plastic with great results: ThermiVa.

What is ThermiVa?

Vaginal tissue can get stretched during childbirth. This can have a negative affect on many things such as urinary continence, sensation of pleasure during sex, and lack of general vaginal comfort. Labia also may have been stretched due to labor or age and can cause discomfort during intercourse and even wearing certain clothes, such as tight jeans, swimwear and athletic wear.

ThermiVa is a non surgical radiofrequency treatment to the vaginal canal and labia that is not painful nor requires any down time. It tightens the tissues to relieve women of many issues including:

  • Urinary incontinence
  • Orgasmic dysfunction
  • Thinning, drying and imflammation of vaginal walls (vaginal atrophy)
  • Intimate tissue laxity (vaginal laxity /vulvar laxity)

How does ThermiVa work?

ThermiVa uses radiofrequency energy transmitted by hand-held device that is lubricated and inserted into the vagina. The device is ergonomically shaped with a square metal tip electrode that emits the collagen stimulating energy. ThermiVa does not use any lasers so there should be no burns, blisters or open sores. It is not painful, so there is no anesthesia needed. The device does heat up as it emits the energy, however the temperature can be adjusted to maintain comfort. The procedure is done in a matter of 30 minutes in our office by one of our skilled practitioners. You can resume all normal activities, including sex, that day.

What kind of results can be expected?

You can notice an improvement almost immediately with one 30 minute treatment. However, ThermiVa stimulates collagen production so results continue to improve over time. It is also recommended for most patients to receive three 30 minute treatments a month apart to receive maximum results. A touch up treatment every so often could also help. For some women, this is needed in 6 months, others it could be a year or more.

We are happy to offer ThermiVa to help our women patients experience more comfort and confidence about their FemGem area. If you’d like to have a discreet, confidential consultation regarding what ThermiVa can do for you, please contact us at www.davinciplastic.com.

Top “Tweakment” 2019: Non Surgical Rhinoplasty

“Non surgical nose jobs” have been popping up more and more on Instagram over the last year. As awareness and interest increases, the amount of people asking for this procedure, formally called Non Surgical Rhinoplasty, is bound to increase simultaneously. It is positioned to be one of the top “tweakments” of 2019.

What is a “tweakment”?

A tweakment is an adjustment to your looks to align it with your ideal self. It’s not a complete change of who you are or what you look like, but a small change to enhance your existing features. Tweakments are usually less invasive procedures (though sometimes still surgical) and don’t involve as much recovery or downtime. These usually are performed to help your actual appearance line up with the filtered, photoshopped self on social media.

What is Non Surgical Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular surgeries because the nose is a flagship feature of the face. When the nose is put into facial harmony, it offers one of the most greatly satisfying results. The change can be quite drastic to one’s appearance, but it usually what is desired. On the other hand, the Non Surgical Rhinoplasty is a quicker, no downtime route to achieving your preferred nose. It uses injectables to achieve the desired small changes, so there is no sedation or recovery time. With topical numbing and extremely precise injections over the course of a lunch break, you’re on your way.

What can Non Surgical Rhinoplasty do?

The injectables fill in curves and bumps, adjust the shape of the tip, and increase the hight of the bridge, which minimizes the appearance of width. Even though hyaluronic acid filler is adding volume, the precisely placed injections can actually make your nose look smaller and straighter.

Who is not a candidate?

Someone who has already had Rhinoplasty or a nose break, may not be a candidate depending on the fragility of the nose blood vessels. Also, if the desired adjustment to the bump or width of the nose is just too drastic, traditional Rhinoplasty would be needed to achieve desired results.

Any downsides?

As with any injectable treatment, there are risks and the results are temporary. Results usually last around a year, give or take, depending on the filler used. Also, if price is a factor then, Rhinoplasty is more cost effective in the long run due to the temporary nature of the fillers. However, some people are willing to incur the cost in order to avoid surgery.

Using injectables for Non Surgical Rhinoplasty is called an “off label” use of the hyaluronic fillers, so this use of them hasn’t been endorsed by the FDA and comes with health risks. For safety reasons, treatments should only address concerns along the bridge of the nose and only be done by expert injectors familiar with nasal anatomy. This ensures that any blood flow is not inadvertently blocked, which can have severe negative affects to the eyes and surrounding skin.

Refining the nose is the one of the most harmonizing effects for refreshing the face. If you feel like your nose is our of balance with your facial symmetry, and you’re deciding if Rhinoplasty or Non Surgical Rhinoplasty is for you, let’s talk it over.

Top “Tweakments” 2019: Mini Facelift

Does this describe you?

  • You’re a loyal recipient of injectables and have enjoyed the benefits for years.
  • You love the results, but have the feeling you’re needing a little more than what they can do.
  • You don’t have in mind anything drastic, but some minor improvements just beyond the benefits that injectables have previously satisfied.
  • You’re open minded to surgical options, but are in the prime of your career and/or raising a family, and just don’t have the time for a recovery “time out.”

If so, you might be a good candidate for a Mini Facelift. In the past many people were saying this kind of surgery wasn’t worth it because of the subtlety. Now, with the “tweakment” mindset of many people these days, I would say it is a great fit. Here’s why:

  1. Yes, the results aren’t drastic, but that’s what some people want. They want that comment from a friend or coworker that says, “You look refreshed, a little younger, but I can’t put my finger on exactly how.”
  2. Volume loss and loose skin that is effected by gravity cause the beginning of jowling along the jawline. A small tightening to this area with a Mini Facelift is refining and rejuvenating. If the neck is in pretty good condition, then the Mini Facelift will address the jowling and lower third of the face nicely to turn back time about 5 to 7 years. This is ideal for women in the 40s, but I’ve seen patients in their mid 30s through their mid 50s who could benefit from a Mini Facelift.
  3. Depending on the issues addressed by a Mini Lift, it can usually be done without general anesthesia and within a fairly quick surgery requiring a small hidden incision. The recovery is mild. Some people go back to work after a long weekend or feel good enough within a week. This is a perfect option for most women in their prime career and family years.

Other options

Not Ready for Surgery Yet? A Liquid Facelift can be a great way to hold off on a surgical Facelift. It can smooth wrinkles, restore volume, and even lift a little. However, when it comes to the effects of aging on the lower face and neck, injectables are limited and not long lasting.

Need something a little more? A Full Facelift can address the whole face, but really tighten major jowling and sagging neck that can leave you rejuvenated and looking 10 years younger. Depending on the degree, will require about 2 weeks out of work and resting with about a month of recovery. Swelling and bruising will gradually subside beyond that time, but is manageable and coverable with makeup.

Every Facelift is unique. Come talk with us about your facial rejuvenation goasl so we can help you decide what “tweakment” or procedure will be best for you. Schedule a consultation at www.davinciplastic.com.

Kissable Lips

This winter has been one of the worst in a long time… can you say “Polar Vortex” with -50 degrees in the Northern Midwest?! Lots of things suffer in the cold winter months and your lips are probably screaming for some TLC. Usually the winter combination of frigid outside temperatures and dry indoor climates is a recipe for skin, and especially lips, to get super dry.

Dry, dehydrated lips look dull, white, rough and cracked. Without any help, they’re not exactly enticing for that sultry smooch. Don’t worry, there is time to heal and rejuvenate your lips. Here’s a guide for the perfect pucker:

Exfoliate

Exfoliation not only gets the rough dead skin off, it helps to speed up cellular turnover for fresher lips. There are many ways to slough off the dead skin on your lips. The key to exfoliation is not to be too rough and damage your lips in an already rough winter environment. Many exfoliating options include a hydrating element to it. There are exfoliating lip balms and scrubs in stores or you can make your own with sugar and coconut oil, just remember to be gentle.

Hydrate

Lip balms containing waxes can be temporarily soothing, but cause more dryness later. Some contain healing oils like jojoba that are helpful instead of harmful. It’s a good idea to put this on nightly before bed, too. Don’t forget to keep up your water consumption. At least 8 glasses a day. Your skin and lips (the first visible sign of dehydration) will thank you.

Plump

The verdict is in: most guys don’t like to be kissed by someone who just applied a lip plumper. That burning feeling it causes isn’t the kind of tingling sensation men had in mind when imagining that perfect pucker moment. A longer lasting, non invasive alternative for a plush pout is getting help from a hyaluronic filler like Juvederm. It’s one of the most beloved injectable treatments for many reasons. More youthful, sensual and soft lips are the results when you are in the hands of our expert injector. We know how to fill just the right amount so that your lips are full, shapely and soft, not stiff over filled sausages.

Color

Top off your soft, plush pout with a lip color that makes you feel like love is in the air. Are you a more demure damsel? Go with a nude. Are you feeling that sexy vibe? Rock your best red. Or anything in between. Just choose a long lasting, stain or lipstick that makes you feel great and won’t leave a big smudge behind.

We can help you have your most kissable lips ever. Visit www.davinciplastic.com to schedule your appointment today.

2019 Trend: The “Tweakment”

This new word “tweakment” is being thrown around in fashion magazines a lot so far this year. With this being one of the biggest 2019 trends, I thought I’d spend a little time on it with you.

So what is a “tweakment?” It’s a play on the words “tweak” and “treatment.” Generally it encompasses a variety of surgical and non surgical procedures that are seemingly small “tweaks” to your appearance. You still look like yourself, but with an ever so subtle enhancement.

Previously, the way most people would communicate to me what features they wanted to accomplish through plastic surgery or non invasive treatments, would be to bring celebrity photos. They’d say “I want her lips” or “I want her nose” or “I want his chin,” etc.

Now, with the smart phone photo editing technology in the palms of our hands, we can enhance the existing features to be more appealing, at least in the cyber sense. We still look like ourselves, but with youthful, symmetric features. Now a days, the way many people are showing me what they want to look like by using these filtered photos of themselves. They want this to not just be a virtual reality on social media, but how they actually look.

This “tweakment” trend is coming from a mindset of people wanting to continue to look like themselves with a little more refinement to their features. Tweakments offer a confidence boost in our appearance, but are minor enough that they aren’t obvious to everyone else. So what are some examples of “tweakments?”

One of the most “up and coming” of the tweakments is the “non surgical nose job.” Rhinoplasty is one of the most requested of plastic surgeries, however, over the last few years more and more people are wanting non surgical alternatives for the more minor tweaks. For these cases, the fillers offer some people with a temporary yet incredibly satisfying change

Another popular “tweakment” that is expected to be the most popular one of 2019 is the Mini Facelift. While everyone wants the results, the recovery for a full Facelift can be daunting for some people. The ones who have exhausted the benefits of the Filler Facelift and aren’t in need of the dramatically rejuvenating results of a full Facelift can turn to the Mini Facelift for help. This less intense surgical option gives the face a refresher that should only require a weekend of recovery.

So have “tweakments” gotten your attention? I’ll cover more about the non surgical nose job and the Mini Facelift in following blogs. If you’re ready to talk about what a “tweakment” can do for you, please visit www.davinciplastic.com to schedule a consultation.

The Gift of Youth: The Hottest Holiday Gift for your Valentine

Save your time perusing online or strolling the crowded malls for the hottest Valentine’s gift. You can give one of the most desired gifts that almost every adult would love without stepping into any mall or online portal… simply visit DAVinci Plastic. One of the holiday’s hottest gifts is to give a non invasive cosmetic procedure like Botox or a Filler Facelift, and we can help you with that!

Who’s a Great Recipient?

More people are dropping subtle and not so subtle hints that they don’t want another purse, shoes or box of chocolates for Valentine’s Day…well you can still include a box of chocolates. They want to turn back the appearances of time. So who might be a good recipient for the hottest holiday gift this year? Here are some criteria: 

  • Women or Men above 35 years
  • Anyone who’s expressed concern about the appearance of their wrinkles.
  • Someone who already “has everything”
  • They’ve already mentioned they’ve been wanting to try a injectables or go back for more if they’ve already liked what they got.

Don’t Forget the Fellas

When given the gift of youth, women are so happy, however they aren’t the only ones with this on their wish list. While some men might be more subtle with their hints about it, they’re totally game for trying Botox… or should we call it by its a manly code name, “Bro”tox.

For a guy, this kind of treatment is considered desirable to give a professional advantage. It’s that slight edge above the competition to build confidence and connection with clients. For example, a gruff, deeply creased and furrowed brow can put off potential clients. Brotox lightens these forehead creases to go from looking angry to contemplative. Also a little Botox or filler can take tired eyes and lighten them to communicate alertness. With a little injectable help, these features look healthier and translate to clients that are happier.

The Best Gift Giver Ever

Another reason this is the hottest Valentine’s Day gift is that you don’t have any pressure as the gift giver. You can purchase a gift certificate, put it with a brochure, bow on top, and don’t forget that box of chocolates. Then at their earliest convenience, the recipient can come for a consultation to determine their best options for using it. They have so many treatments to choose from. For you, that means no pressure, and all the gift giving pleasure.

You want to be the best gift giver ever, right? Get the hottest Valentine’s Day gift: a DAVinci Plastic gift certificate for a non invasive treatment. Visit www.davinciplastic.com or come in to our location to pick up your gift certificate today to have a happy Valentine this Valentine’s Day!

Sneaky Facial Features That Tattle Your Age

As the saying goes, “the squeaky wheel gets the grease,” so it also follows that the most prominent facial features demonstrating the signs of aging will get the fillers and Botox. Most people don’t have a hard time seeing the effects of aging on prominent features like the forehead, eyes and mouth area. However, there are areas from the neck up that are more subtle yet have an impact on the youthful harmony of the face. It takes a trained eye to spot these sneaky features that tattle your age if they’re not addressed along with the more noticeable features. I will bring those to your attention here.

Temples

While the creases and crow’s feet around the eyes scream for attention, the timid temples often go unnoticed in their affect on facial youthful harmony. The temple is defined as the area on the outside of each eye towards the hairline, stretching from the top of the cheekbone to the lower edge of the brow bone. This area is not exempt from the volume loss that occurs with age.

As a matter of fact, the temples are an area accentuated by the volume loss and the hollowing of the temples makes the whole eye area look aged and tired. Filling in this shadowy region helps to rejuvenate the eye and upper face. When only other upper face issues are treated something can look “off” or still aged about your face. If you haven’t been able to put a finger on it, it just might be your temples.

Earlobes

One of the features that sees a lot of adornment, but not attention are the earlobes. They’re draped with earrings from childhood and not a thought comes their way when considering the youth enhancing effects of fillers. However, earlobes show their age too, just like the face and neck. Gravity and pulling from earrings over the years will take their toll on the lobes. When they get thin, droopy, and wrinkly, earlobes really stand out against a face that has received treatments to be smooth, firm and full. So don’t forget about your little cartilage earring carriers and show them some injectable filler attention.

Chin

A smooth, well defined jawline and chin can lose its shape over the years by facial volume and skin being redirected downward due to gravity and loss of elasticity. While a lot of attention is given to addressing the jowls and jawline, the chin plays an important role in facial contour, too. It helps give the face its shape and balances other facial features. Using injectable fillers to correct chin volume loss or underprojection due to genetics will enhance youthful appearance, the overall facial harmony and balance.

While dominant facial features attract a lot of attention, we can disregard the subtle yet crucial effects these minor features have on the overall youthfulness of the face. Don’t let the sneaky features like the temples, earlobes and chin tattle on your age. Schedule your consultation today at www.davinciplastic.com to address these subtle changes to enhance the overall youthful harmony of your face.

Think Outside the Box…Giving the Gift of Youth

Thanksgiving week is here, but it’s already beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Christmas and Hanukkah decorations are popping up everywhere and have been filling the shelves at the retail stores. Seasonal music is piping in through the speakers as we walk down the isles. Advertisements for Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales pop up on our screens. Gift giving and receiving is on the top of people’s minds. With this in mind, here are some youth restoring gift ideas for your loved one.

Avoid the Mall

Fortunately, at DAVinci Plastic, we have some great gift ideas for you. We have something for every budget, whether it’s picking up some clinically proven SkinMedica skincare, that dream surgery your significant other has been wanting or something in between like a gift certificate for a non surgical Liquid Facelift, we can take care of your gift needs. Our staff can make gift shopping easy and you won’t have to deal with the mall crowds.

What They Really Want

While the temptation is to shop for some gadget or accessory, nothing has the ability to make someone feel their best like when they know they look great. This is a priceless gift you can give. Don’t worry about it being taboo or taken wrong. If you’ve heard someone say anything related to them wanting cosmetic surgery or injectables, this is an open invitation to provide for that desire.

This is the perfect time of year for the gift of youthfulness. Events with friends, family, co workers will fill up the calendars. The season is full of social gatherings, so if you know they’d like BOTOX or fillers, you may even consider giving this special gift early so the results can be enjoyed throughout the season. Not only will they feel great while looking youthful and rejuvenated at the events, they can look back on the many photos taken this time of year and be happy about what they see.

If you think a little “outside the box,” here are some ideas of the gifts you can give so that the effects are enjoyed throughout the holidays:

  1. Luscious lips… fuller, sexy lips with gleaming red lipstick for that extra joy in all those smiles these holidays. This can be accomplished with a gift certificate for hyaluronic acid fillers like JUVEDERM.
  2. Frown free foreheads… no frown lines or furrowed brows will be present on such joyous occasions this holiday season when they’re smoothed with BOTOX.
  3. Bright eyes… that gleam and glow without being shadowed by sunken tear troughs or creepy crows feet. Injectable fillers will rejuvenated the eyes so they don’t look tired during all the festivities.
  4. Smooth smiles… without deep creases and folds around the nose and outer lips that can lighten a smile to look years younger. Fillers for the winsome smile win.

These gifts won’t require stepping out of the social holiday fun because treatment time is quick and they have no downtime or recovery. So this holiday season, think outside the box and give the gift of youthfulness. Stop by our office or visit www.davinciplastic.com to schedule a consultation to see what gift would be best for your loved one.

Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving!

No More Turkey Neck

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, the holiday preparations are under way. Most of us are looking forward to a delicious turkey meal. However positive the association with Thanksgiving dinner may be, that fondness doesn’t extend to the cosmetic issue that many deal with called “turkey neck.” That flabby fat and skin under the chin is most unwelcome. But don’t worry, you can easily eliminate the submental (under chin) bulge without missing any of the holiday festivities, including that scrumptious Thanksgiving dinner. Here’s how… KYBELLA.

What is KYBELLA?

KYBELLA is the first and only FDA approved injectable treatment to melt away the fat under the chin. The injection of molecules that naturally occur in the body, deoxycholic acid, help the body break down and absorb dietary fat. KYBELLA destroys enough fat cells in the injection site to 
noticeably contour under the chin. It minimizes the appearance of the “double chin” without surgery, which means you don’t miss out on any holiday fun.

What kind of results can you get?

A double chin is an issue that causes dissatisfaction in facial profile for many people. Whether it’s a result of genetics, weight gain or loss, double chins are so hard to get rid of, even with diet and exercise. This is a feature many people hate seeing in their photos, but surgery just isn’t an option this time of year. Fortunately, this is the perfect time of year for KYBELLA. It gets amazing results without any downtime.

After a full KYBELLA treatment, 79% of patients were satisfied with the reduction of their double chin. After receiving treatments, a survey of 1,600 patients, reported that the majority felt happier and that their new chin profile looked younger.

Treatments are typically 4 to 6 weeks apart. It takes approximately 6 weeks to see the results of the fat cells being destroyed and eliminated by the body. Depending on the amount of submental fullness, your treatment schedule can range from 2 to 4 injections.

Is there any downtime?

You can get a KYBELLA treatment and continue with your day. Typically there is some swelling and bruising at the injection site, but another reason this is the perfect time of year for KYBELLA is that you can easily and fashionably cover that with a scarf or turtleneck. It is a series of injections, so you don’t have to be concerned about any recovery, bandages or incisions. Fall and winter months are the perfect time of year, even in the midst of the holidays.

Refine and define your profile this holiday season without any surgery or downtime. With the chilly weather wardrobe, this is the perfect time to get started with KYBELLA to get rid of that turkey neck and double chin. Schedule your KYBELLA consultation for a smooth, sleek jawline and profile at www.davinciplastic.com.
