Restore your youthful appearance, refresh your look, and feel confident again about the personal and professional impression you make. If you want to combat the signs of aging but maintain a natural look, facial and skin rejuvenation may be right for you.

Facial and skin rejuvenation refers to a variety of nonsurgical procedures to address the signs of aging, such as loose skin, loss of volume, wrinkling, and skin discoloration. The rejuvenation techniques performed at RevitaLife require no surgery and are minimally invasive. They use energy transfer, fillers, or surface correction to restore your face to its youthful appearance. Lines are minimized, volume is restored, and tone and texture are corrected. With so many options available, you are certain to find the right one to get the results you want, all without surgery.

If you are concerned about your appearance and want a more youthful look, facial and skin rejuvenation can produce results. They are proven techniques that provide renewed youthful appearance and can be safely performed in the office, often in one treatment and even during your lunch hour. This is perfect for your busy life.

ANTI-WRINKLE DERMAL FILLERS

The most visible signs of aging appear to the face. Exposure to the sun, genetics, and even your natural facial expressions all play a role in the formation of wrinkles. Even with a healthy diet, plenty of exercise, adequate hydration, and sufficient sunscreen, wrinkles are still a natural part of aging. But you don’t have to let a few wrinkles make you look older than you feel. RevitaLife can help you look as young as you feel with a variety of injectable treatments for smoother, more youthful looking skin.

Injectable dermal fillers can be gels or creamy substances. They add volume for instant, natural-looking results that can last up to one year. They are injected directly into the skin in a nonsurgical procedure to:

  • Correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles, lines, and folds, especially around the nose, mouth, chin, and lips
  • Provide volume around the cheekbones
  • Define and add volume to the lips

RevitaLife offers these dermal fillers:

  • Juvéderm®-- Juvederm is perfect for moderate to severe wrinkles. It was the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler intended for use around the nose and mouth with results that last up to a year. Hyaluronic acid is a natural part of the body and, like collagen, can decrease over time. A simple Juvederm nonsurgical treatment can erase the parenthesis, smile, and marionette lines from the mouth and nose to restore a youthful look.
  • Restylane®-- Restylane dermal filler adds volume and corrects moderate to severe wrinkles around the lips and mouth. Restylane Silk can be used to enhance lip volume in patients over age 21. The hyaluronic acid in Restlyane works instantly to visibly reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the nose and mouth, leaving smoother, younger-looking skin. Restylane Silk is made with particles that are smaller than other Restylane products and is perfect for filling and forming lips.

FACIAL INJECTABLES—BOTOX® COSMETIC and DYSPORT®

When you look in the mirror, do those frown lines between your brows make you frown even more? Have years of smiling left you with not only a lifetime of memories but also crow’s feet next to your eyes? If so, a facial injectable—BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport®—may be an appropriate facial rejuvenation treatment for you. It will allow you to age gracefully by smoothening the skin and erasing those unwanted lines.

BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are two popular and effective facial fillers. They are similar in that both are botulinum toxin Type A, but the surrounding protein structure is different in each. At RevitaLife, we can discuss which may be a more appropriate choice for you.

BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are injected into the muscles between the eyebrows to temporarily improve the appearance of frown lines and at the outside corners of the eyes to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet lines. Muscle activity is temporarily reduced in these areas, and the result is a reduction of the aging effect of crow’s feet and frown lines.

  • For frown lines, injections are made into the forehead muscles.
  • For crow’s feet, injections are made in the muscles on the outside of the eyes.

Your BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® treatment should not hurt. Most people say the Botox injections feel like a “pinch.” If you are concerned about pain from the injections, ice or a topical numbing agent can be applied to the treatment area.

The actual treatment takes only about ten minutes to reduce years from your appearance. It is a nonsurgical procedure, and there is no down time or recovery time. You can even have a treatment on your lunch break and return to your daily schedule. You will begin to see results in 24-48 hours, and the treatment will last for about four months.

When you trust RevitaLife with your BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® procedures, you can rest assured that your results will appear natural. The injections are made by a skilled physician, and the treatments will not result in a loss of facial expression. Wrinkles are gone while the ability to show facial expression is maintained. You will smile at the stereotype of the “frozen face” because you will be able to smile and laugh totally naturally.

Other Uses for Injectable Treatments

Nonsurgical alternative to an eyebrow lift. If you have heaviness in the brow area and want to open the eye area up, BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® can give you the results you desire.

Excessive sweat production. The body produces sweat to regulate body temperature, but sometimes more sweat is produced than is needed to keep you cool. This condition is called primary axillary hyperhydrosis. If sweat production is impairing your quality of life, an injectable treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® can block the signals that tell your glands to produce sweat. One treatment of 10 to 15 injections can bring you relief for about six months.
