Why You May Benefit From Cosmetic Treatment
As we age our skin loses elasticity and begins to wrinkle, sag and fold. Frequent exposure to the sun and other elements can also cause premature signs of aging throughout the face. Likewise, hereditary factors and certain lifestyle habits such as smoking can also cause visible signs of facial aging to develop over time.
In fact, as we age the body produces less collagen, a protein that is essential for healthy, elastic skin. As this occurs, the skin loses its elasticity and starts to sag. Fat becomes displaced and muscle tone is lost. All these factors converge, resulting in noticeable signs of aging, including fine lines, wrinkles, creases, hollow pockets and sagging skin.
Treatments such as BOTOX, Juvederm, Thermage or a combination of these treatments can refresh the skin and provide a healthier, more youthful appearance.
Our Cosmetic Services
BOTOX Treatment. When injected, BOTOX, a purified protein, relaxes the muscles beneath the skin. As the muscles relax, so do the overlying wrinkles. BOTOX treatment is intended to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows as well as moderate to severe crow’s feet around the outside corners of the eyes, among other areas. BOTOX treatment is quick and can be performed on your lunch break, with no downtime required. You should simply avoid rubbing the treated area, reclining or engaging in strenuous activity for a few hours after treatment. Results typically last about 3-4 months.
Juvéderm Dermal Filler. We offer a variety of Juvéderm products, including traditional Juvéderm UltraPlus, Juvederm Voluma and the new Juvéderm VOLBELLA. Juvéderm dermal fillers are comprised of hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance that helps the skin retain moisture. Juvéderm treatments are designed to restore fullness to areas of the face that are lacking volume, and can be performed in less than an hour.
Juvéderm Ultra Plus is an effective option for filling in and thus smoothing out the facial furrows and lines that develop around the eyes and mouth, between the eyebrows and across the forehead, for rejuvenating results that last up to a year.
Juvéderm Voluma is especially beneficial for creating volume in the cheeks and softening the jawline. Voluma may last up to two years, the longest of the Juvéderm products.
New Juvéderm VOLBELLA has a smoother consistency that makes it an excellent option for enhancing the lips. It also has great results for eye rejuvenation, adding volume to deep tear troughs. Juvéderm VOLBELLA is the only dermal filler clinically proven to last 12 months in the lips from a single treatment.
Restylane & Perlane. Offering a selection of dermal fillers allows Dr. Skouras to provide unique customized treatment and results individual to your needs. A hyaluronic acid just like Juvederm, Restylane is offered in both 0.4cc and 1.0cc sizes, so you have the ability to purchase a smaller syringe at a lower cost if you have a low volume issue requiring correction.
Latisse. Do you wish you could grow longer, darker, thicker eyelashes? If so, you may benefit from Latisse eyelash-lengthening treatment. When applied to the base of the upper eyelashes consistently each day, Latisse can cause your natural lashes to grow longer, thicker and darker in as little as six weeks!
Thermage. This innovative radiofrequency (RF) therapy works to reactivate the body’s natural collagen production, resulting in firmer, healthier-looking skin. It typically takes about two hours to treat the face and/or neck and about 45 minutes to treat the eyelids. Thermage therapy works by delivering RF energy into the skin’s deeper tissue layers, heating up the cells in the treatment area just enough to cause mild cellular breakdown. As the cells repair themselves, latent collagen production is stimulated. Although you will notice some aesthetic effects of Thermage treatment immediately, the results continue to improve as the body continues to produce more collagen, with optimal results peeking at six months. The skin-firming results are considered permanent; however, patients often prefer to repeat treatment every couple of years to maintain the results following the initial treatment.
