KNOTT STREET BOTOX
Botox® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) is FDA approved to treat dynamic lines (those that move with facial expression) above and between the eyebrows, forehead, and crows feet in patients between the ages of 18 to 65 years. It will soften, but may not completely remove fixed lines (those present on an expressionless face). Botox is injected into selected muscle groups to minimize facial wrinkles and usually lasts about 3 to 4 months.
Dermal fillers are FDA-approved and used for the cosmetic treatment of fine facial lines, wrinkles, and folds. Dermal fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in every living cell. Fillers contain synthetic gel forms of hyaluronic acid derived from non-animal sources and are highly compatible with the body. When the gel is injected, it acts like an inflated cushion to support facial structures and tissues that may have lost volume or elasticity with normal aging. Hyaluronic acid also brings water to the surface of the skin to keep it looking fresh and supple. The gel is injected into the skin through a fine-gauge needle at the site of unwanted lines and wrinkles.
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
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.
With age, your skin’s natural collagen supply decreases and you may start to notice wrinkles and facial aging.
Activate the skin’s natural regenerative process with Sculptra Aesthetic and help replenish lost collagen1-3, the most common protein in the body that supports cells and tissue. This FDA-approved injectable subtly and gradually over time helps restore facial volume.
Your veins are part of your circulatory system. As the blood returns to the heart, healthy strong veins act as one-way valves to prevent the blood from flowing backwards. When veins weaken, some of the blood can leak backward, collect there then become clogged. This causes the vein to abnormally enlarge, resulting in spider veins. Sclerotherapy is the injection of a sterile chemical into a vein. At Knott Street Aesthetics we use Asclera, an FDA-approved agent. Asclera works by damaging the inner wall of the vein, eventually causing the vein to collapse on itself. Over time, the damaged vein is replaced with fibrous connective tissue and prevents blood flow through the vessel.
