BOTOX // XEOMIN // DYSOPORT
Neurotoxins are a purified protein that blocks receptors at nerve endings, preventing the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter, thereby preventing muscle contraction. Neurotoxins are used to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by relaxing the muscles of the face into which it is injected and to prevent future wrinkles. It takes from 4-7 days to see optimum results for Neurotoxins. You may require additional units at a subsequent follow-up visit within two weeks to complete the injection series to obtain the goals we have discussed. 10-20 units per area are only an average and are by no means the standard. Males usually require more than females. People with stronger muscles may require more. Neurotoxins will not fill any wrinkles/lines; they relax and smooth the moving lines, not stationary wrinkles.
The results from a Neurotoxins can last anywhere from 6 weeks to 4 months or more. The duration will vary from patient too patient.
We offer the following fillers: Juvederm Ultra Plus, Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Voluma, Radiesse, Belotero, Restylane, Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft.
Most fillers are a hyaluronic acid that has a light, gel-like consistency which acts like a sponge to absorb water. It is already found in our connective tissue and when injected into the dermis, it fills in lines and restores volume in lips, cheeks, and under the eyes. Each filler has unique characteristics that make it appropriate for volumizing different areas of the face.
Thicker fillers such as Juvederm Voluma are great for cheek augmentation and last up to 2 years while Belotero and Restylane Silk are thinner and finer fillers which can be used for lines around the lips or hollows under the eyes. Radiesse is the only filler that is a calcium based product. Fillers come in a 1 cc syringe and generally speaking unless you are only doing your lips, you may require more than one syringe. Radiesse the only filler that is used with a 1.5 cc syringe, is great for cheeks and smile lines. Radiesse has been shown to promote collagen production as the calcium product is degraded by the body where it was injected. Fillers generally last up to one year but will degrade sooner in places that have more movement such as lips.
KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called
“double chin.”It is not known if KYBELLA® is safe and effective for the treatment of fat outside of the submental area or in children under 18 years of age.The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
Started going to Steph for lip fillers in the beginning of 2021. When I tell you I had no top lip, this amazing and talented woman made me have juicy natural lips now. Obsessed! Throughout this year I’ve gotten them done 2 1/2 times and also have gotten Botox with Steph too. Just recently got a peel facial from Chelsea, and that was absolutely amazing too. Both women are very professional, sweet, & Great at what they do. I’ll always recommend Vanity Lab med spa. I don’t even mind the 45 minute ride either! So worth it! You won’t be disappointed -Stephanie Davenport
