Prepare To Look Younger With Dermal Fillers & Injectables

What Is Botox ® Cosmetic?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines in adults.

A well-studied treatment

BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the most extensively studied medical aesthetic treatments and is approved for cosmetic use in 78 countries.* BOTOX® Cosmetic has a record of experience that aesthetic specialists know and trust. And, the safety and efficacy of BOTOX® Cosmetic have been evaluated in both Allergan sponsored clinical trials as well as in 417 peer-reviewed articles in scientific and medical journals.

*VISTABEL® outside of North America.

Derived from sources that exist in nature

BOTOX® Cosmetic contains tiny amounts of a highly purified botulinum toxin protein refined from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum. Formulations, potency, and approved doses vary among botulinum toxin products, which means that one product cannot take the place of another. Those are a few reasons why there is no such thing as a “generic” form of BOTOX® Cosmetic. There have been no studies to support that other products are Unit-to-Unit equivalent to BOTOX® Cosmetic.

A treatment experienced by millions of people

Approximately 10.9 million vials of BOTOX® Cosmetic have been sold in the United States since 2002, and millions of people have already made BOTOX® Cosmetic a part of what they do for themselves. Today, BOTOX® Cosmetic is the #1 selling product of its kind in the world.†

How Does Botox ® Cosmetic Work?

BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Your specialist will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows.

Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes that can occur over time, reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals in the sun and the environment. 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.

BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet.

For the crow’s feet area, your specialist will inject 3 areas of the orbicularis oculi, the muscle that frames the side of the eye. This will be repeated on the orbicularis oculi muscle on the other eye.

Injecting BOTOX® Cosmetic into the muscles that cause crow’s feet lines temporarily reduces the activity of those muscles. The result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines.

What Should I Expect With Treatment?

Real, noticeable results

You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting up to 4 months.

Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch

Your specialist may use ice to numb the treatment area. If you are concerned about discomfort, your specialist may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.

The actual injection process takes about 10 minutes

Your specialist will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you.

You’ll look like yourself—only with less noticeable frown lines and crow’s feet

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. You should not lose the ability to show expression when you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy.

Return to your daily routine

Treatment requires minimal downtime or recovery; it’s often called a lunchtime procedure. You’ll be able to go about your normal routine immediately after you leave your specialist’s office.

Cost considerations

Your cost not only includes the price of the product, but more importantly, the skill and expertise of the specialist or healthcare professional who is administering your treatment.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment—look for someone who is licensed and trained and has experience treating patients with BOTOX® Cosmetic.

Be wary of discount products or “cheap” BOTOX® Cosmetic—if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

It is more important to find an experienced specialist who will take the time to understand your treatment goals and develop a treatment plan that is right for you.

Bellafill

Bellafill® offers a new level of filler rejuvenation. The collagen immediately adds volume to smooth away facial wrinkles known as smile lines, and the polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres help your skin re-create its own firmer structure for beautiful, younger-looking skin and lasting results.

Juvederm® Voluma Xc in Scottsdale

As you age, it’s not just about lines and wrinkles. Your cheeks can lose volume and skin may begin to sag.

The Voluma Lift is one of Mari Contreras PA-C signature procedures. The Voluma Lift achieves a non-surgical face-lift effect using multiple soft tissue & dermal fillers to counter act the effect of aging, weight loss or exercise.

Juvederm Voluma XC is the only FDA-approved injectable gel to instantly add volume to your cheek area to correct age-related volume loss. It contours and provides a subtle lift for up to two years. It contains lidocaine to help improve comfort during treatment.

Achieve a more youthful, healthier, vibrant, and rested appearance now.

How It Works

Juvederm Voluma XC is injected under the skin with a small needle. It works instantly to add volume and subtly lift the cheek area, temporarily reversing the sign of aging. This procedure lasts up to 2 years and can be performed during a brief office visit.

Recovery
    • No ibuprofen or aspirin 48 hours before or after treatment

    • Note: no alcohol for 24 hours after treatment

    • No increased blood pressure (i.e. sauna, hot tub, exercise, cardio) for 24 hours post treatment (Helps prevent bruising)

    • It is recommended that make up not be applied until 1 hour after treatment to allow the skin to breathe

    • There is a risk of bruising which is only temporary and can be covered up with make-up

    • Apply an ice pack or cold compress to the treated area to help reduce redness and swelling (can last from one hour to 48 hours)

Juvederm®

Juvederm® is the only hyaluronic acid filler FDA approved to last up to one year with initial treatment. It is a safe and naturally based dermal filler that smooth’s facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds). These are the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth.

Young, healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). But as you age, sunlight and other factors can reduce the amount in your skin. The lack of hyaluronic acid causes your skin to lose structure and volume, creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm® also works on Marionette Lines and vertical lip lines.

The overall effect will give you a more youthful healthy look. The nasolabial lines will be virtually gone creating a beautiful youthful result. Juvederm® will also help enhance your lips reducing small lines and restore fuller healthier lips.

Kybella

About Kybella®

KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your profile.

KYBELLA® may be right for you if:

  • You’re bothered (unhappy, self-conscious, embarrassed) by fat under the chin, also known as submental fullness

  • You feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are

  • You don’t want to have surgery

  • You eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away

Actual patient. Unretouched photos taken before treatment and after final treatment. Individual results may vary.
Age: 36 | Weight (before/after treatment): 143 lbs/144 lbs
Total Treatments: 3
Multiple injections under the chin per treatment; up to 6 treatments spaced at least 1 month apart. 59% of patients received 6 KYBELLA® treatments in clinical studies. Treatment is tailored to the amount of fat under the chin and aesthetic goals.

How Kybella® Works

The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic 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 the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.

What To Expect With Kybella®

Before starting treatment, your healthcare specialist will examine the area under and around your chin to determine if KYBELLA® is right for you. Then, your specialist will tailor your treatment to the amount of fat under the chin and your aesthetic goals.

How is KYBELLA® administered?

Treatment can only be administered by a KYBELLA®-trained healthcare specialist. At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile.

How many KYBELLA® treatment sessions will I need?

Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Your healthcare specialist will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Each KYBELLA® treatment session is given at least 1 month apart, and you should not receive more than 6 treatments. In clinical studies, 59% of patients received 6 treatments.

Will I need time to recover?

After KYBELLA® treatment, you will likely have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin. Be sure to inform your healthcare professional if you develop an uneven smile, facial muscle weakness, or difficulty swallowing.

What are the possible side effects of KYBELLA®?

KYBELLA® can cause serious side effects, including nerve injury in the jaw that can temporarily cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness (experienced by 4 out of 100 people in clinical studies) and trouble swallowing (experienced by 2 out of 100 people in clinical studies). In clinical studies, nerve injury in the jaw resolved on its own in a median of 44 days (range of 1 to 298 days), and trouble swallowing resolved on its own in a median of 3 days (range of 1 to 81 days).

The most common side effects occur in the treatment area and include:

  • Swelling

  • Bruising

  • Pain

  • Numbness

  • Redness

  • Areas of hardness

Side effects are usually temporary and often resolve on their own.

What should I tell my doctor before treatment?

Before receiving KYBELLA®, tell your healthcare provider about all of your medical conditions, including if you:

  • Have had or plan to have surgery on your face, neck, or chin

  • Have had cosmetic treatments on your face, neck, or chin

  • Have had or have medical conditions in or near the neck area

  • Have had or have trouble swallowing

  • Have bleeding problems

  • Are pregnant or plan to become pregnant (it is not known if KYBELLA® will harm your unborn baby)

  • Are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed (it is not known if KYBELLA® passes into your breast milk; talk to your healthcare provider about the best way to feed your baby if you receive KYBELLA®)

  • Are taking any medications, especially blood thinners
