Non-surgical Skin Treatments
For those who seek non-surgical treatments of minor signs of aging, Envy Aesthetic Center offers several chemical face lifts and facial treatments. You can be assured that at Envy Aesthetic Center, treatments are always administered by a qualified doctor to ensure your safety.
We offer the following non-surgical rejuvenation treatments:
- Botox® Cosmetic
- Lip Augmentation
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple, non-surgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people from 18 to 65 years of age. Treatments take just a few minutes in our office and the results are apparent in 3-4 days. In fact, many of our BOTOX® Cosmetic patients stop in for a treatment while going about their daily activities. With more than a million BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport treatments safely given each year, the popularity of this treatment is remarkable.
BOTOX® Cosmetic works by reducing the muscle activity in the areas where frown line between the eyebrows form. BOTOX® is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium and is the only treatment of its type approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Injectable fillers are designed to replace lost volume, plumping up lips or filling deep wrinkles. Patients enjoy the nearly instantaneous results.
Restylane® is the most popular new facial filler available today. It is a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.
Restylane® is made of hyaluronic acid, a polysaccharide gel which is natural substance that is produced by the body. It gives a soft, long-lasting correction with fewer side effects than collagen. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane is a crystal-clear gel called NASHA™ or Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid. NASHA is completely biocompatible with human hyaluronic acid. Restylane® is also free of any animal proteins which limits the risk of animal-based disease transmissions or the development of allergic reactions to animal proteins.
Restylane® maintains its shape using the body’s own moisture. Hyaluronic acid in Restylane® is hydrophilic or “water loving” which means that as it degrades, its molecules are attracted to water, where it forms a chemical bond and provides the lasting results. Over time, the same volumizing effect can be maintained with less hyaluronic acid.
JUVÉDERM™ is an injectable prescription gel that gently reverses signs of aging with the following benefits:
- Diminishes crow’s feet
- Diminishes fine lines and wrinkles
- Plump up the lips
- Sculpt the cheeks
- Restores a youthful oval shape to the face
Similar to Restylane, JUVÉDERM™ is made with hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the body that works with collagen, which gives volume and support to the skin. JUVÉDERM™ comes in three formulas, each is optimized for the depth of the area being treated. And, your results will last for up to one year. With simple follow-up treatments, it can last even longer.
Because JUVÉDERM® is a simple, nonsurgical wrinkle treatment, there is minimal recovery or downtime. The procedure takes about fifteen minutes and has no recovery time and the results are instant.
There are a few possible side effects to JUVÉDERM® including redness, pain, firmness, swelling, and bumps at the injection site. JUVÉDERM® is not for people with severe allergies.
RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler can help you restore your youthful beauty by replenishing your skin’s lost volume. An injectible collagen treatment, RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler immediately provides the volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of aging.
As you age, your own natural collagen breaks down, diminishing facial skin volume, and it loses elasticity. RADIESSE® boosts you skin cells, plumping them up to provide structure and stimulating your own natural collagen growth which lasts for several months to extend the effect.
