Alliance Cosmetics Center
Everyone wants to project a youthful face, unfortunately, this becomes progressively harder as you age. There are numerous surgical procedures such as facelifts that can be used to help restore the image of youth, but many of them are expensive and can have unwanted side effects. We believe in a different way, non-surgical beauty treatments.
Esthetics is the art of using a non-surgical approach to beauty to restoring a youthful appearance and taking years off of one’s face. At Alliance, we have a team of dedicated injection staff who have undergone rigorous training to learn how to restore youth through a variety of treatments, including Botox®, Juvederm®, and Restylane®.
Aging changes us all, for many of us that means additional wrinkles and lines on our faces. Often times this includes lines on the forehead and wrinkles around the corners of the eyes known as crows feet. These wrinkles are formed by the repeated movements of muscles beneath the skin, such as when a person blinks their eyes. Procedures such as facelifts and other cosmetic surgeries can help alleviate these symptoms, but most are very expensive and can involve weeks of healing. Botox® is a non-surgical alternative to these surgeries that can help decrease facial wrinkles and take years off of your face.
Treatments are delivered in the form of injections of Botox® into the muscles that are creating the wrinkles. The treatment causes the muscles to become unable to contract and cause further wrinkles, leading to a smoother appearance. Botox® injections take a few minutes to administer and results last 3 to 4 months
Among the many effects people experience as they age, many areas of the face begin to lose volume or sag, most commonly in the cheek and lip areas. Additionally, wrinkles and lines begin to form on the face due to a lifetime of muscle contractions. Juvederm® is one possible solution to wrinkles and a loss of volume in the lips and cheeks.
Juvederm® is an aesthetic medical treatment that uses an injection of a collection of hyaluronic acid fillers to restore volume to facial areas and reduce wrinkles and lines. Your doctor at Alliance will administer the Juvederm® treatment using a special, sterilized needle. The injection is mostly painless, and some varieties of Juvederm® contain lidocaine to help reduce pain and discomfort. The entire injection process can take from 15 to 60 minutes depending on the being administered. Because Juvederm® is a filler injection, not a chemical reaction, you will see results immediately once the procedure is completed. The results of the injection will be visible for 1 to 2 years depending on the formula used.
As we age, the face begin to develop lines and lose volume in various areas of the face such as the cheeks. For some these problems can be manageable, but for others, facial lines can become very damaging to their self image and confidence. Restylane® is a non surgical dermal filler option that can help reduce lines on your face and add increase volume.
Restylane® products are a specially formulated brand of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. These dermal fibers take the form of a clear gel that can be injected beneath the skin to help smooth wrinkles and restore volume to the face. The treatment will show results on your face immediately, and the results typically last 12 to 18 months after the treatment.
