BOTOX®, Dysport™ & Fillers - Non-Surgical Injectables in Greensboro, North Carolina
All of our injectables are performed by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Mary Ann Contogiannis. She offers BOTOX®, Dysport™, Restylane®, Juvederm™, and Sculptra™ for rejuvenation, as well as Latisse™ eyelash lengthener.
An injection of a clinical formula of Botulinum Toxin Type A, known as BOTOX® Cosmetic, makes it possible to immobilize selected muscles of facial expression, smoothing deep expression lines and furrows, especially around the forehead and eye area and between the eyes (the glabella). BOTOX® is also proven effective for treatment of axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating under the armpits). BOTOX® results are usually seen within 2 to 5 days.
Dysport® is a different formulation of Botulinum Toxin Type A. It’s a simple, effective, non-surgical treatment that works by relaxing facial muscles on the forehead, thereby reducing and smoothing away frown lines and wrinkles. The effects of Dysport® are visible as early as the day of or day following treatment. Supported by over a decade of clinical experience, it has been used in thousands of treatments safely and effectively for a variety of conditions ranging from frown lines to axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating under the armpits). Many people find that after several Dysport® treatments, they don’t need another for a long while because they have “unlearned” the habit of frowning or squinting that originally led to the development of these lines.
Restylane® is a dermal filler used to restore volume and fullness to moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Restylane® is a non-animal-based hyaluronic acid that exists naturally in the human body, so it eliminates allergic reactions. The treatment is simple and convenient, can be administered without pre-testing, and results are almost instantaneous. Restylane® results are long-lasting, giving skin a more youthful appearance for six months or longer. Sessions include a consultation with a physician and treatment.
Sculptra™ Aesthetic is a long-lasting treatment used for the restoration and/or correction of facial fat loss. Sculptra™ Aesthetic is injected below the skin to restore volume in areas of fat loss, such as skin indentations, hollow eyes, sunken cheeks, deepened nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. Results may take six months to present, but they can last for up to 24 months.
Juvéderm™ Injectable Gel
Juvéderm™ Injectable Gel is a gel implant that includes hyaluronic acid, a natural complex sugar that bolsters skin elasticity, providing a smooth and supple appearance. It improves your appearance by lifting and adding volume to the wrinkles and folds in the treatment area. Juvéderm™ Injectable Gel results are immediate and may last for up to six months.
Juvéderm™ Ultra Plus
Juvéderm™ Ultra Plus injectable gel is a colorless hyaluronic acid gel that is injected into facial tissue to smooth wrinkles and folds, especially around the nose and mouth. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body. The role of hyaluronic acid in the skin is to deliver nutrients, hydrate the skin by holding in water, and act as a cushioning agent. Most patients need one treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing, and the results last about six months.
Just like Restylane®, Perlane® adds volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (the nasolabial folds). What makes Perlane® different is the average size of the particles and the depth of injection. On average, the gel particles in Perlane® are larger, which makes it a good choice for wrinkles that can benefit from a deeper injection. Perlane® results are long-lasting, giving skin a more youthful appearance for six months or longer.
Latisse™ solution is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis used to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker, and darker. For many women, Latisse™ offers the results they desire. We invite you to consult with us to determine if Latisee™ is right for you.
Elasti-Lash® is a non-prescription treatment to achieve the appearance of thicker, fuller eyelashes. This solution is dermatologist and ophthamologist-tested and non-allergenic, but it’s not for everyone. Call us to see if you’re a candidate for Elasti-Lash®.
