BOTOX

Botox is a botulinum toxin, a product which blocks nerve transmission to skeletal muscle and thus produces a temporary paralysis to the designated muscle. Dr. Kent has studied with the experts and has done her own instructional video on Botox and fillers. She not only does the routine areas, the forehead and glabellar areas, but numerous other unusual sites to really contour and reduce wrinkles and folds of the entire face. To date this product has been found to be extremely safe and is even being used for a variety of illnesses including migraine headaches, depression, neurological diseases, bladder problems, excessive sweating and others. The most common usage is for facial muscles, which are creating unsightly lines which make a person appear older or unhappy. The product works by preventing the person from making those lines, thereby giving the person a more youthful appearance, less angry or less sad. With aging, the muscles tend to sag. Some believe the repair of the underlying collagen takes place while the muscle is deactivated thereby allowing less formation of the lines over time. Many consider this procedure a part of the "lunchtime facelift." Patients are generally thrilled with the results achieved with this product. Dr. Kent performs the procedure in her office and has corrected smiles, repaired drooping lips and other areas.

RESTYLANE

Restylane was one of the first non-animal based cosmetic dermal fillers to be used in the United States. It is made of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance found in the human body. Dr. Kent is highly skilled in injections of fillers. She strongly prefers a natural look, as opposed to looking overdone. One of the advantages of Restylane, is that the patient does not need to be skin tested prior to use. Restylane has found many uses, in various areas of the body but is especially effective on the face. Wrinkles around the nose (nasolabial fold) and mouth (peri-oral) are particularly responsive to Restylane fillers, but Restylane can be used to improve defects in other areas. The lines between the eyebrows, and depressions under the eyes also respond to Restylane. One of the great uses of Restylane, and also the most recommended treatment requested by my patients, is the enhancement of the lips and lip outline. Facial aesthetics are greatly improved by adding body to the lip line, in a natural way and also by adding body to the cheek area, which decreases nasolabial folds and enhances your youthful appearance. Our patients generally come back for more Restylane every 4 to 6 months.

RADIESSE

Radiesse is a safe, FDA-approved dermal filler made of unique calcium-based microspheres suspended in a natural gel that is injected into the skin. The results are immediate and unlike the other fillers, it lasts a year or more. The tiny calcium-based microspheres form a "scaffold” to support and stimulate the growth of your own collagen. Over time, these microspheres gradually break down and are safely and naturally absorbed by your body. Dr. Kent's patients request this filler to correct their smile lines, nasolabial folds, and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Dr. Kent performs this procedure by injecting the skin through a simple, safe and convenient procedure. Radiesse treatments have little to no downtime, with most of the patients returning to normal activities soon after a treatment.

PERLANE

Perlane is made from non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid gel. Like Radiesse, the effects of Perlane lasts up to a year or more. Since hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the skin and other tissue, there is no need for a skin test when using Perlane filler. It is biodegradable so its effects are not permanent. Dr. Kent uses this filler to fill hollows under the eyes, smile lines, crow's feet, marionette lines at corners of the mouth, worry lines and smoker's lines. Some of Dr. Kent's patients use Perlane for lip enhancement and nasolabial folds. Restylane and Perlane are very similar products with similar effects. Perlane, like Radiesse, is used for deeper lines.

JUVEDERM

Juvederm is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid similar to Restylane. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to ad volume and hydration. This filler is used for "laugh lines," "smile lines" or nasolabial folds. Juvederm is and FDA-approved that can last 6 months or a year in some patients. Juvederm has a high concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid. Dr. Kent likes this filler as well because it creates a smooth consistency gel that flows easily into the skin and provides a smooth, natural look and feel. No allergy skin test are required prior to receiving this treatment as well.

VI PEEL

Vi Peel is the first face peel that is for all skin types. With this peel, no skin preparation products are needed, and minimal or no down time is required. Dr. Kent routinely performs this procedure which only takes about 10 minutes. This peel is different from other peels because it is virtually painless. Sensitive individuals may experience a slight stinging sensation. Patients will experience some redness immediately after the procedure, and the skin will peel slightly over the next several days. Vi Peel reverses the effects of sun damage, environmental factors and aging, and in time will enhance your skin's natural beauty. In addition to facial treatments, the Vi Peel can also be used to treat sun damage on the decolletage and hands. It is also highly effective in clearing acne and impurities for patients as young as twelve years old; a series of treatments may reduce acne scars. Vi Peel will improve the tone, texture and clarity of the skin. It will also reduce or eliminate age spots, freckles and hyper-pigmentation including melasma, soften lines and wrinkles, and stimulate the production of collagen and elastic for firmer skin as well. Some patients, however, may require several treatments to achieve the best results.
