Botox

The most common non-surgical procedure performed in the US is Botox Cosmetic.  Dr. Theodore Lazzaro, as well as our Physician Assistant and Nurse Practitioner are highly recognized Pittsburgh Botox specialists with thorough understanding of facial anatomy, proper use of doses of Botox and the many years of experience using Botox Cosmetic to consistently deliver superior results for our Botox patients.

 

How does Botox Cosmetic work?

Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. And when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow’s feet.  FDA approved BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet to form over time.

Botox  is very simple to perform for our certified injectors and usually takes only a few minutes.  Using a very tiny needle, a small amount of Botox® Cosmetic is injected into the muscles that cause the wrinkles, temporarily reducing the activity of those muscles, smoothing out the skin. Since the needle used is so small, there is no discomfort and no anesthesia is needed.  The final result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines. Results typically last 3-4 months*.

 

Is Botox Cosmetic right for me?

Only your aesthetic practitioner can determine whether BOTOX Cosmetic is right for you. We are happy to see you for a BOTOX consultation at which time we will review your medical history, take photos and determine if Botox is a good option for you. Every patient is different and we specifically go over your physical exam and what realistic expectations are for you.

If we determine that BOTOX is a good choice for you the procedure involves a series of injections which take several minutes each. Botox starts to work usually within 24-48 hours and reaches peak effect closer to 14 days after treatment.

Botox Cosmetic for Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis)

For many people, having to deal with those annoying sweat stains on their clothes, hoping no one notices them, is a daily occurrence.  The embarrassment associated with excessive sweating can be profound. Whether the problem is underarm sweating or sweaty palms, the impact on day to day life can be significant.   Many with excessive palmar sweating avoid shaking hands at all costs while others with excessive underarm sweat will try to wear special pads or garments, try multiple antiperspirants and/or topical medication to try to ‘stem the tide.

Now there is a safe, reliable and well-tolerated means of reducing sweat production that is quickly and easily administered that lasts for several months: Botox Cosmetic injection. Botox Cosmetic is not just for smoothing out wrinkles.  It is now FDA-approved for the treatment of hyperhidrosis.  The Spa at Aestique is currently treating patients with excessive underarm sweating with Botox Cosmetic. The treatment itself only takes 15 – 20 minutes and on average it lasts about six months.

Many of our patients come in for treatment on a regular basis, usually about twice a year, so that this frustrating problem is almost completely eliminated from their lives. Others come in prior to important social engagements, such as weddings and reunions and before important public appearances. Our patients who have undergone Botox Cosmetic for hyperhidrosis often state that the treatment is life changing.

The average cost for this treatment is typically around $950 to $1200.  Most patients say this is huge savings to what they spend on dry cleaning, deodorants and topical treatments every month.

Juvederm, Voluma and Volbella Injectable Fillers

To regain a youthful or less tired look or to lend volume and to sculpt the lips, you may want to try one of the dermal fillers. The dermal fillers we use are temporary, yet long lasting, injectable gel implants. Our Physician Assistant and Nurse Practitioner are both extensively trained and experienced clinicians that perform these procedures.

As we age our skin loses elasticity and moisture. This normal aging process, plus environmental factors like sun exposure, cause different facial lines to form, including moderate to severe lines and folds. Some areas that may be treated with fillers are: parentheses near the mouth, vertical lip lines, lip corner lines and marionette lines.

 

JUVÉDERM® family of products:

  • Juvederm ultra XC
  • Juvederm ultra Plus XC
  • Voluma XC

Also available to treatment is Volbella.

 

How does JUVEDERM® work?

Juvederm is a nonsurgical injectable filler that our PA or NP injects to instantly smooth or soften the lines along side the nose and mouth. The natural looking results can last up to a year with optimal treatment.  To determine if you are a candidate we will be happy to see you in the office for a consultation. At that time we will review your medical history, take photos and discuss with you whether you are a candidate and if so where might be injected, what product and how much.

 

Juvederm® Facts

  • It is a nonsurgical office injection procedure
  • Contains modified hylaronic acid, derived from a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body
  • Is gently injected by our PA/NP under the skin using a very fine needle
  • A topical skin anesthetic is used prior to the injections
  • It contains a common anesthetic as well called lidocaine to reduce discomfort

 

How does JUVEDERM® VOLUMA work?

Wrinkles are not the only sign of aging. Volume loss in the cheek or mid face area can also add to the tired appearance associated with aging. Voluma helps enhance the contour of the cheek area to create a more youthful profile for up to 2 years with optimal treatment.   As with any procedure, the first step is the consultation to determine if you are a candidate for Voluma. If you are a candidate the procedure is done in a similar fashion to other gel injectables. A fine needle is used to inject Voluma and add the volume and contour changes.

 

How does VOLBELLA work?

If you have been looking for a natural-looking filler to enhance the fullness of your lips and reduce lines around the mouth, Volbella is for you. The Spa at Aestique is excited to introduce Volbella in both our Greensburg and Shadyside spas. Volbella is the latest FDA-approved injectable added to the Juvéderm family of dermal fillers and can be used alone or in conjunction with Juvederm Ultra XC. This non-surgical lip augmentation treatment is designed to plump the lips and minimize the appearance of fine lines around the mouth, also known as perioral rhytids or perioral lines- lines that previously were difficult to treat.  What makes this filler unique is its patented Vycross  technology which, through more efficient crosslinking, produces greater lift capacity and longer lasting results. In fact, a company-led study found that over 90% of test patients reported natural looking lips with more than 80% of them still satisfied with their results after one year.

This temporary filler is made of Hyaluronic Acid and does not require a skin test before your injections. The smaller Hylauronic Acid particle size in Volbella allows your clinician to treat fine lines without getting a full look in these delicate areas.

Volbella is the perfect product to choose for small fine lines and subtle enhancement of the lips. The smaller particle size allows for the correction of these fine areas without the worry that your lips will get bulky or too puffy.

Kybella

Aestique® is always looking for the newest proven cosmetic treatments to offer our patients.  We are excited to announce that we are now offering, FDA approved Kybella treatments to help with under chin fat.  This non-surgical treatment contours and improves the appearance of submental (under the chin) fullness.  With this procedure, we can eliminate that double chin with nothing more than a few injections at reduced cost of its surgical counterpart.

Whether that double chin was caused by weight gain, aging or genetics, this area has proven to be resistant to diet and exercise.  Kybella works by injecting the fat underneath your chin.  The active ingredient, deoxycholoric 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 your chin, Kybella causes the destruction of those fat cells.  Those cells can no longer store or accumulate fat – they are permanently removed.

Kybella is performed in-office and typically takes 15-30 minutes.  Multiple injections are performed during each session.  The number of sessions can vary depending upon your individual circumstances but most often 3-6 sessions are recommended, spaced at least one month apart.  Following your treatments you may notice some temporary bruising, slight swelling or redness at the injection sites which should subside within a few hours.  Post treatment restrictions are similar to that of dermal fillers.  You can return to normal activities immediately but you will want to avoid strenuous exercise for the next few days.  Any discomfort from the injection can be alleviated with an ice pack and/or Tylenol.  You will begin to see a change after only a few visits.  You will notice a more taut, thinner, youthful appearance.  Once you have reached your desired aesthetic outcome, re-treatment is not expected.

ALTERNATIVE TREATMENTS:

In some cases, liposculpture may best address your submental fullness.  Submental liposculpture, while one of the least invasive surgical procedures, it is still considered surgery in which you must undergo an anesthetic and recovery time.  Another option is a facelift.  While a facelift can tighten the skin around the chin, it will not actually remove the fat in that area.  At your consultation Dr. Lazzaro can recommend the best treatment plan that is right for you.

BENEFITS OF KYBELLA:
  • FDA-approved
  • Minimally invasive
  • No downtime
  • Reduced fat underneath the chin
  • Youthful, thinner look
  • No surgery
  • No anesthesia
